#96 Christina Suter: Education- Investing In Stabilized Markets and Market Timing

“You need to pay attention to the cycles that occur where you are invested and it’s your job to know the movements in those cycles and whether you’ve hit the top or the bottom and what you’re going to do with the property at that point.” -Christina Suter


Today I am talking about investing in stabilized markets and what market cycles indicate for these types of markets. A stabilized market is a place where when you look at a FRED housing chart for your desired city, the market stays between 20˚ and 30˚ during recession cycles. This means that this market has less demand in comparison to Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and San Francisco. You can look at my previous video to hear more about appreciating markets. Cities like Knoxville and Indianapolis dont have such a huge draw as the cities above, but what they do have is stabilized industries that provide jobs for people living in that area. Market timing is also not as important in stabilized markets because it doesn’t fluctuate as much as in appreciating or depreciating markets.
