5 Real Estate Market Predictions For 2021

Well, we think everyone can agree that 2020 was full of surprises.

This year spared no industry from a barrage of audibles, the full impact of which remains to be seen. As the year draws to a close, it’s about that time of year to look back at trends that emerged and make predictions about what comes next.

Longstanding real estate market trends that had held steady for over a decade saw sharp reversals. But are these circumstantial blips on the radar, or harbingers of a societal restructuring?

We look for clues to forecast real estate market trends for 2021.

Rent in big cities will drop

Up until this year, rents across the nation had been climbing steadily higher quarter over quarter for almost ten years. 2020 interrupted that: Rental prices in some of the hottest housing markets cooled in the second half of the year..

There were two key catalysts for the drop. Firstly, a huge portion of the workforce went home. For the first time, employees were longer restricted to a radius close enough to the office for a daily commute. Secondly, interest rates dropping to zero made loans cheaper for prospective home buyers.

For the first time in their lives, Millennials will experience a renter’s market.

A renter’s market goes hand in hand with an investment property buyer’s market.

“In places like Manhattan, many buyers have been priced out over recent decades,” says Jesse Prince, Founder and CEO of HappyNest, a real-estate investing app.

“The impacts of COVID may present unique buying opportunities for those risk-tolerant operators willing to bet that effective vaccines are right around the corner, large corporations will begin to repopulate the urban core office markets in the near-term, and business will rapidly return to normal.”

Buyers who picked up rental investment properties during the housing market dip of 2008 enjoyed decade long gains. History might be repeating itself.

Office space will be converted to residential units

Big city landlords aren’t the only ones poised for a tough year. Urban flight could have consequences on commercial real estate owners too. Thousands of businesses went bankrupt this year; needless to say, they won’t be renewing their leases. Many companies that were better fortified to withstand the turbulence of 2020 announced that their employees can remote work permanently, including headcount heavyweights like Google, Shopify, and Nationwide.

Others welcomed the elimination of a recurring lease expense on their P&L – especially those who found their teams were just as productive at home.

Presumably, the combination of these three factors will leave a dent in the demand for office leases. The question is – how big of a dent?

“Whether or not the current trend of urban flight will reverse in the post-pandemic New World remains up in the air – a risk factor that shouldn’t be ignored by developers underwriting any new projects,” Prince says.

Even prior to the Work-From-Home Revolution, the transition from suit to sweats was well underway. According to a research report by GetApp, between 2010–2019, the number of remote employees surged 400%.

Landlords in the right municipal zoning might consider converting their buildings into mixed-use, work-loft properties to fill vacancies faster.

“Converting underutilized office space into mixed-use properties is by no means a new strategy, one that proved effective in several urban markets during the recovery from the Great Recession.” Prince says.

The months following widespread vaccination will be critical gauges on COVID’s impact on office space demand in the coming years. For opportunistic investors, it could also be a rare ‘buy the dip’ opportunity in the commercial office real estate market.

Increase in demand for flexible lease office spaces

Business owners in new or long-term leases found themselves stuck paying for offices they weren’t using for the lion’s share of the year.

As leases draw to an end, business owners across the country will be asking themselves: What value does a shared working environment bring my company and my employees?

In a survey done by Publicis Sapient, only 15% of respondents said they wanted to return to the office full time, 21% said they preferred to work remotely full time, while 64% said they’d prefer a hybrid model with some days in office and some days remote.

Some of those employees just might get their wish.

Workshare spaces are intuitive solutions for what many experts are calling the rise of the Hybrid Work Model. As such, they could stand to benefit as the economy emerges from lockdown – especially in the early phases of reopening.

Businesses, smaller ones in particular, will appreciate the savings on overhead expenses without passing up the benefits of strong team relationships and in-person collaboration.

Other companies endured major economic blows in 2020, and were forced to downsize as a result. A return to a half-full office might prove demoralizing and warrant a location change either way.

With uncertainty still ahead, they may opt for short-term, low-risk leases and smaller spaces until things stabilize.

All of these circumstances could translate into new demand for workshare spaces as a byproduct of the pandemic.

Industrial real estate are poised for double digit growth

2020 brought record growth in the e-commerce sector as stay-at-home orders and pandemic fears made doorstep deliveries the primary means of acquiring goods for large sects of the public.

Though the reopening of retail locations may trigger a pullback in e-commerce activity worldwide, it’s unlikely to fully recede to pre-pandemic levels. Its convenience and wide product availability is sure to have won over former holdouts.

Even prior to 2020, e-commerce was experiencing healthy growth year over year – the pandemic only gave it a boost on its trajectory.

All those orders need to be processed, filled, and shipped from somewhere. That’s why industrial real estate, fulfillment centers in particular, are slated to be big winners for years to come.

“It often pays to follow the money. Goldman Sachs, and other institutions, have started taking large positions in industrial assets,” Prince notes.

Unlike other types of real estate markets, the upside is all but guaranteed. Major retailers including Amazon, Home Depot, Chewy, and Lowe’s have already announced plans to open fulfillment centers.

That makes the industrial sector a highly attractive investment property option with low-risk tenants.

“Industrial services have proven themselves essential during the pandemic. From a cash flow perspective, the risk that your tenant won’t pay their rent is reduced significantly,” Prince adds.

Purchasing industrial real estate as an investment property is out of reach for many investors. But you can enjoy the upcoming gains with whatever capital commitment fits your budget through crowd investing apps like HappyNest, which has a fulfillment center currently leased by FedEx in its portfolio of properties.

Housing market will continue to gain value

Months-long lockdowns raised some big questions for city renters, who had mostly seen their apartments as places to sleep, change, and store things.

Prior to 2020, they willfully made concessions in square footage to be in the middle of the big city action.

But after just one month of sharing a 300-square-foot apartment in lockdown, ‘home’ began to feel like a prison cell. Suburbia and small town America never looked so good…and spacious.

Renters leaving the city for some peace and quiet is good news for the housing market. As demand for single-family homes increased in suburban areas, so too did housing prices. Some areas hit record highs.

“People are fleeing urban markets in search of more space for them and their families. It no longer makes sense to pay $5,000+ for a two-bedroom apartment during a lockdown,” Prince notes.

Interest rates are expected to remain low through Q1 of 2021, further stimulating the hot housing market. That will help prospective buyers offset the rising list prices of homes.

“Markets are super tight because building has slowed down while demand has increased. High demand coupled with low interest rates are a recipe for higher home values and top dollar for sellers.”

The 2020s

With the pandemic yet to be fully behind us, these real estate market predictions are based on trends we already saw emerging in 2020.

The vaccine has the finish line in sight, and the post-pandemic world may finally arrive in 2021.

But if 2020 taught us anything, it’s to always keep our heads on a swivel.

Think outside the stock market: Alternative investments for 2021

Diversify your portfolio with alternative investments.

Those early in their investment journey might take that to mean buying stocks from a few different companies whose operations are uncorrelated.

But that would amount to a basket with some different colored eggs in it, all still bound to the fate of the basket.

Though the stock market is the investor go-to, the rise of algorithmic trading has tangled the performance of individual companies to the market at large.

That’s why investors are looking to diversify their portfolio not only within the stock markets, but in alternative investments.

What are alternative investments?

It’s easier to characterize alternative investments by what they are not. They are not cash, public stocks, and bonds. Consequently, they are generally less liquid and longer-term strategies.

On the upside, they open numerous avenues and opportunities ranging from safe investments with steady yield to high risk-investments with potentially quit-your-job returns. But where to start?

Here are seven alternative investment classes investors can consider.

Alternative investment 1: Private REITs

  • Barrier of entry: Moderate
  • Risk factor: Low
  • Potential returns: Above average

One way to get into the real estate market is through a private REIT. They have all the characteristics of REITs traded on the stock market, except they are privately held.

Real estate is widely considered to be a safe and reliable investment over time. Private real estate investment group investments are also insulated from stock market volatility since the aren’t caught up in EFT and other stock collectives.

A private REIT uses pools investor capital to purchase and maintain property. As a shareholder, you buy into that portfolio and enjoy the property value gains.

One of the biggest upsides to investing in property is that it generates income. Most alternative investments require capital to be tied up for an extended period of time, and any profit only comes at the point of selling. Real estate also accumulates profit for the point of sale in the form of market value. But it also had the added benefit of generating income while your capital is invested in the form of rental payments.

Compared to buying investment properties and managing them independently, REITs are a ‘set it and forget it’ investing strategy that involves zero late-night tenant plumbing emergencies nor tens, if not hundreds of thousands upfront for a downpayment and a commitment to a mortgage.

HappyNest, for example, allows investors to buy in for as low as $10. By investing in HappyNest, you become a partial owner of our portfolio, which includes an industrial shipping facility currently on a 10-year lease with FedEx and a commercial pharmacy on an 8-year lease with CVS.

That means your can build a passive income stream by becoming the landlord of companies you know are good for rent.

Alternative investment 2: Cryptocurrencies

  • Barrier of entry: Low
  • Risk factor: Above average
  • Potential returns: Above average

Right now, there’s little doubt the United States in poised for growing inflation in the years ahead. Trillions of dollars were printed and put into circulation without a corresponding growth in economic output.

That’s bad news for savers, and impetus enough for investors scrambling to find stable, alternatives to preserving their net worth.

That’s at least part of why cryptocurrencies have gained so much traction from investors.

Once considered somewhat of a joke by big-name investors, the attitudes around Bitcoin and other digital currencies has taken a drastic turn in 2020.

With global markets volatile and the future opaque, a currency independent politics, governments, and stock markets look pretty appealing nowadays.

Flagship Bitcoin has trail-blazed for other cryptocurrencies to get on the radar of institutional investors. Major companies like Microsoft, Shopify, PayPal, CashApp, and Amazon (through a third-party app) now accept Bitcoin, with more on the way.

Some of the brightest minds of our time have taken public interest in the space. Their involvement all but guarantees the space’s growth for the foreseeable future.

The upside to foreign and cryptocurrencies compared to other alternative investments is that they are highly liquid. You can also invest just a few dollars if you want to, so the commitment level is low.

This alternative investment has a promising long-term trajectory that is becoming increasingly difficult to dismiss.

However, there are still challenges ahead. The space will likely continue to experience high volatility in the coming years, so investors have to be able to stomach that.

That being said, the whiplash to those price swings can generally be remedied by zooming out on the time chart. The overall trend is still a steady march upward and forward.

Alternative investment 3: Gold, silver, and other precious commodities

  • Barrier of entry: Moderate
  • Risk factor: Above average
  • Potential returns: Variable

At the end of the day, gold is the heavyweight champion of alternative investments. After all, it is the undisputed GOAT when it comes to currency longevity. Silver and other precious commodities like copper,

There are several ways to get into trading these, but gold enthusiasts believe in its long term value as a hedge against the collapse of FIAT currency and/or the stock market.

There’s some truth to this claim. As the purchasing power of the dollar declined in the wake of the Great Recession, gold’s price went parabolic.

Precious commodity hodlers argue that it has intrinsic value not only in its widespread recognition, but because it also has industrial applications.

On the long term, the upside of gold and other precious commodities has held up for those with patience and long-term horizons. Gold holders had to ensure a major price correction and 7-year sideways period before finally seeing some movement to the upside in late 2019.

Alternative investment 4: Private credit: Private debt

  • Barrier of entry: Low
  • Risk factor: Above average
  • Potential returns: Above average

Peer-to-peer lending cuts the middle man (i.e., the bank) out of lending.

Through platforms like Lending Tree or Peerform, you can lend money (investment) to a person or a business. Then, you play banker and charge interest on repayment.

The returns on private debt can be high – in the double digits.

But for every yang, there’s a yin. High potential returns come with high potential risks.

Applicants’ risk profiles oftentimes do not meet the loan criteria for standard banks. That’s something the private lender (you) have to be willing to take on. If the borrower defaults, well, c’est la vie.

That being said, peer-to-peer lending as an alternative investment strategy tends to perform better in economic downturns. That’s because banks become more risk averse and tighten their lending criteria.

In a study released in August of this year by MarketWatch, the peer-to-peer industry was projected to grow by 30% – a sign that investors aren’t quite bearish on this alternative investment strategy just yet.

It’s also worth noting that the industry as a whole saw a high growth period after the Great Recession of 2008 as the credit markets recoiled.

That could mean that 2021 might shape up nicely for those with a bullish risk tolerance.

Alternative investment 5: Private equity

  • Barrier of entry: High
  • Risk factor: High
  • Potential returns: Max

Embrace your inner hipster: Find the next big thing before it goes mainstream.

That’s private equity investing 101.

The key differentiation between private equity and publicly traded stocks is that stake in the company is not available to just anyone.

And just like the sharks, private equity firms generally invest in startups, privately held companies, and companies in distress.

They provide the capital the company needs, either to scale or overcome an obstacle, as well as ‘business management services’ (for better or for worse).

At the end of the day, the goal of private equity investment is to generate value and return for investors – and a lot of it.

The good news is, according to global capital management firm Bain & Company, private equity investments have generated a 60% higher return on investment compared to the S&P 500 over the last 30 years.

The bad news is that unless you spend your Wednesday afternoons on the golf course, private equity might be prohibitively expensive to get into.

A $250,000 would be on the lower end of the entry price to go through an institution – and to be properly ‘accredited.’ But keep in mind: that buy in is still the coach class, boarding group C of private equity.

Alternative investment 6: Hedge funds

  • Barrier of entry: High
  • Risk factor: Medium
  • Potential returns: High

Hedge funds are similar to private equity. They pool investors’ money and make strategic deals they’re betting will produce return. They’re also similar in that they require investors to be ‘accredited’ (read: a certified rich person).

Like private equity, a $250,000 minimum investment is par for the course. It can run many times higher depending on the firm.

The key differentiator between hedge funds and private equity is the types of asset investments they make.

Like private equity, hedge funds also buy stakes in private companies. But hedge funds investment strategies are more diversified.

They also invest in public companies, real estate, and tangible commodities that appreciate like gold, fine art, wine, and collectibles (rumor has it the hedge fund manager who bet big on beanie babies in the ‘90s is no longer in the business).

Big hedge fund managers are the celebrities of Wall St. – Ray Dalio, George Soros, and Bill Ackman. Those with the means to buy into their exclusive club can ride their coattails into the sunset.

Warren Buffett, is not a hedge fund manager. What makes him different? Unlike hedge funds, the average investor can ride his coattails…by buying public shares in his company Berkshire Hathaway – no ‘accreditation’ required. No wonder he’s America’s favorite billionaire.

But if you can swing it and meet the accredited investor criteria, hedge funds tend to be pretty hands-off investments. After all…you’re outsourcing managing that part of your wealth to someone else.

Adding alternative investments to your portfolio

Now that you’ve expanded your view on potential investment opportunities, it’s time to consider if branching out makes sense to you.

If you’re portfolio is too concentrated in public equities and you want to manage your risk, allocating a slice of your net worth to a private REIT or other non-traded investment class will alleviate the pressure – and give you opportunities to catch big wins.

 

Parents, It’s Your Responsibility to Teach Your Kids Financial Literacy

Parents, it’s your responsibility to teach your kids financial literacy or they’ll have to learn the hard – and expensive – way

Parents want what’s best for their kids, especially in regards to their future.

What a shame then, that one of the most highly correlated predictors of success in adulthood is one of the least talked about topics in the world of parenting – financial literacy for kids.

Financial literacy is on the decline

Financial literacy in the U.S. has been on the decline for the better part of two decades. The consequences of that have been the stuff of headlines.

The problem is likely to get worse: A study released earlier this year by the TIAA found that only 16% of Millennials qualify as financially literate.

And it costs them dearly….literally. On average, millions over the course of their lifetime.

But where there is a problem, there is an opportunity. In this case, that opportunity is that a comprehensive financial education becomes a strategic advantage in life.

After all, who wouldn’t want to give their sons and daughters a leg up over 84% of the population?

We all know things aren’t getting any easier – let alone what the future holds.

Don’t rely on school to teach kids about financial literacy

Only 21 states in the U.S. require personal finance coursework in public schools. Believe it or not, that’s actually a significant improvement from just two years ago.

Still, most requirements are minimal. A majority of states have no curriculum in financial literacy at all.

Like it or not, the reality is that the responsibility of financial literacy for kids falls squarely on their parents.

Financial education in the school of hard knocks

Most people earn their financial education the hard way: A slow, painful process in the strict and unforgiving classroom of the real world.

Lessons here come at a hefty price: deflated credit scores that haunt for seven years, debt that seems to never go down despite monthly payments (that aren’t always easy to make, especially in early adulthood), and tricky ‘offers’ that are essentially financial booby traps.

But in the depths of the convoluted fine print, most of these ‘offers’ capitalize on money management blindspots.

In recent years, the world of finance has grown even more labyrinthian – predatory even. Many products are specifically designed to exploit (and profit) from widespread gaps in financial literacy.

It’s a cruel and costly learning curve.

But parents who understand the importance of financial literacy for kids can flatten that curve. They can introduce basics on how to manage money at an early age. Then they can build on that foundation with more sophisticated concepts over time.

Financial literacy during the Wonder Years

Explaining how indexed annuities work to a 2nd grader will unsurprisingly be met with blank stares. But there’s no reason we shouldn’t expect the same from a young adult who hasn’t learned foundational concepts like investing, compound interest, and the importance of taxation timing.

Of course, not all at once. But the earlier a financial education framework is introduced, the more time the investment will have to mature.

Elementary years

As with all things in life, the basics come first and early.

That aforementioned 2nd grader probably can grasp the Bank of Mom and Dad depositing an allowance into an account.

Over time, an allowance account offers many learning opportunities on managing money – from delayed gratification (‘you can get the NERF ball now, or wait another 2 weeks to get that bike we saw’) to basic principles of fixed income.

Early adolescence

Parents can share visibility into an investment account as children enter early adolescence, such as a college savings account. That way, their preteen can see first-hand how small investments can lead to big payoffs.

Calibrate your expectations: Though they might not seem especially interested at first, once that investment grows into real money, they’ll likely change their tune.

This is also a great time to start familiarizing them with things such as personal credit scores.

High school

By the time they’re in high school, they will have witnessed what Einstein called the ‘sixth wonder of the world’: The power of compound interest.

From there, it is only a small logical step to understanding how compound interest can work against them in the context of debt.

But nothing quite beats the real thing. High school is also a time where kids start wanting big-ticket items, such as a car or a trip with friends. These wish list items can serve as the basis for the mechanics and implications of debt.

Their financial education can mature in tandem with them.

Parents bridge the classroom and the real world

What makes early exposure to financial literacy for kids so vital is the bridge it creates between the math they learn in school and how it applies in the real world.

Consider compound interest – arguably one of the most important engines in finance – is taught in 7th grade. It is not easy to recall when they’re applying for a credit card or deciding how much to contribute to their 401k.

But with first-hand experience watching an investment account grow over time, they’re more inclined to make financially savvy choices while time is on their side.

The idea is to find teachable moments along the way – life is chock full of opportunities to deepen your child’s financial literacy skills.

Financial literacy isn’t just math, it’s mindset

Understanding the numbers and math that go into financial products on the market today is an integral part of financial education. The more elusive piece of the puzzle is often the psychology around money management and growing wealth.

Financial philosophies, such as “pay yourself first” and “being poor is expensive,” aren’t taught in schools, even those that offer personal finance coursework.

But mindset, attitude, and strategy all impact wealth accumulation outcomes. Parents can help their children to see money as a tool, not a master.

Early bird gets the worm

Parents who want to see their children succeed shouldn’t rely on the school to teach them financial literacy. Instead, they have to take a proactive approach in their child’s financial education.

Perhaps the most important role a parent can play in their child’s financial literacy is helping their children bridge the conceptual to real-world application.

As with most investments, time is a variable. But kids have the benefit of time on their sides.

Early investment in financial literacy for kids ensures that when the time comes for them to fly the nest, they’ll have a little more lift under their wings.

Reach Your Financial Goals With a Diversified Portfolio

It’s fair to say that deciding where to start or what to do can feel overwhelming with all the investment options out there. Just listen to CNBC, Fox Business, or Bloomberg any day of the week, and you’ll hear dozens of opinions about where to invest your money. “Buy stocks,” “buy bonds,” “buy gold!” “sell Bitcoin!” “buy real estate,” the options feel endless. On the surface, the advice can be confusing and, at times, contradictory. Still, if you take a step back, you realize they are all hinting at one fundamental piece of advice: diversify your portfolio.

What exactly is diversification?

Simply put, it’s the process of spreading your investments across multiple industries and asset classes. You’ve probably heard the saying, “don’t put all of your eggs in one basket,” as it turns out, this applies, quite literally, to your investment portfolio.

To better understand diversification’s benefits, you must first understand modern portfolio theory (MPT) and correlation. MPT argues that an investment should be evaluated on how it affects an overall portfolio’s risk and return. This is important because the risk and return profile of one investment can influence an entire portfolio. When you have a diversified portfolio, you will have assets with varying levels of risks, returns, variances, and correlations.

As for correlation, it’s the degree of a relationship between two assets. For example, if two assets are perfectly correlated (correlation equals 1), when one asset price goes up, the other asset increases at the same value, and vice-versa. A well-diversified portfolio includes assets with low correlation preventing the entire portfolio value from collapsing in bad times.

So, what does a diversified portfolio look like? It includes a mix of real estate, stocks, bonds, and even some Treasuries. All these assets have varying risks, returns, and correlations with one another. For example, Treasuries and bonds generally have lower returns than stocks and real estate but can be a good source of steady income. These are your portfolio’s lower-risk portfolio stabilizers. Real estate and stocks can provide more significant long-term returns but increase the overall portfolio risk. These assets are your portfolio’s growth engine.

Additionally, according to PREA.org research, real estate and stocks have a low correlation of 0.07, and real estate has a -0.15 correlation with bonds. By investing in all three of these types of assets, your portfolio return is resilient from events that may affect real estate or stocks exclusively. A great example of why this is important is the 2008 Great Recession and the stock market drop in early 2020. Private market real estate did not necessarily lose its value even when stocks declined sharply. In fact, as bond values took a hit during this same period, private market real estate (multifamily, single-family, industrial, and logistics) increased in value. The private market real estate, in this case, stabilized the portfolio value for long enough to allow an investor to maintain their ownership in stocks, which of course, returned to near all-time highs as of the publishing of this article.

In short, a diversified portfolio helps mitigate the effects of unfavorable market fluctuations while still allowing you to take advantage of the bull market runs. At the end of the day, it’s important to find the right balance of assets for your risk tolerance. Creating a well-diversified portfolio can help you hit your financial goals faster!

How to Generate Passive Income by Investing in Real Estate

We all know that it’s wise to put in the effort to create multiple streams of income rather than depending on a single stream of income to fund your life. After all, you never know when one job or income source might fizzle out, leaving you high and dry with not even a moment’s notice. For this reason, it’s essential to understand the basics of creating passive income for yourself.

One of the best ways to generate passive income is by investing in real estate. Were you aware that residential real estate as an asset class is a $29 trillion market, and the commercial sector adds another $10 trillion? If you’re new to the world of investing or real estate (or both), you’re probably wondering how you can make the most of this opportunity. Here’s how you can get started on generating passive income by investing in real estate.

Do Your Research First

Just as you wouldn’t rush into investing in some business or company without first understanding them, you should never rush into real estate investing without first doing your research. First and foremost, learn everything you can about the target market. What is the average sale price of a variety of properties in the area you’re considering for investments? What kind of extenuating data relating to the local economy, workforce, and population might impact real estate value? Understanding the market will give you a leg up on the competition, ensuring your success in growing your passive income and cash flow.

What is passive income? Simply put, passive income is any source of income that earns money for you while you sleep. In other words, passive income puts money in your wallet over time without you having to log hours for it. Of course, most passive income, including that earned from investing in real estate, take some work upfront. But once things the foundation is set, you can sit back and collect your money every month.

Whether you’re looking to make use of one of the top investing apps such as HappyNest to invest in commercial property, or invest in a residential property, you should set a realistic goal and be prepared to do some work to get started.

Create a Goal and Vision for Yourself

Even if you’re armed with the best apps for investors, you won’t get far without the right mindset. It would help if you considered your reasons for investing before diving too deep into the specifics. Do you have a goal in mind that’s related to financial independence for you or your family? Are you just looking to create extra income to put towards a large purchase in the future? Answering these kinds of questions for yourself can give you a much clearer mental roadmap of where you are and where you want to be with your investments.
