Real estate market in Sacramento Season 1, Episode 2

My what a difference 18 months makes!

Do you own real estate in the greater Sacramento area? Recently bought a home here? Or, just thinking about buying or selling real estate in the City of Trees?

The Sacramento real estate market today is markedly different than the spring of 2020, and certainly not white hot. However, although things have calmed down, here at Towerpoint Wealth, we believe it is useful to remember and understand both how and why the market became so overinflated, as to not repeat the same mistakes twice, and to recognize the benefits of the Sacramento real estate market being a buyer’s market now, versus a seller’s market not too long ago.

So enjoy listening to the discussion our President, Joseph Eschleman, shared with veteran real estate agent Brian Kassis, of Re/Max Gold, back in April of 2021.

Economy in Recession? Season 1, Episode 1

Economy in Recession? Five specific strategies to help you recession proof your portfolio

Is the United States economy on the verge of slipping into a recession? Or is the exact opposite happening – is the economy continuing to recover, and is more robust than it is getting credit for? Are we looking towards an economy in recession, or are we more recession proof than many economists believe?

While our economy is by no means recession proof, it should come as no surprise to our clients and to TPW friends and colleagues that we take this volatility with a grain of salt, as we pay attention, but rarely react, to these short-term movements. Is a recession coming?

Perhaps, but there is anything but consensus on what happens next.

What we do know is this:

1. While the economy is by no means recession proof, economic expansions tend to be much more robust than recessions.

2. Even if we are facing an economy in recession, that over the past 73 years, bull markets have lasted longer (50 months, on average) than bear markets (13 months, on average), and have more than made up for periodic market declines. This all begs the question: If we are facing an economy in recession, what can YOU do to recession-proof your portfolio?

This educational podcast will specify FIVE strategies to help you recession proof your portfolio, even if we are facing an economy in recession!
