It’s finally over! The crazy, unpredictable, and just plain weird housing market of 2022 has ended. Though analysts like me will likely be studying the 2022 housing market for years to come, we can finally take a quick look back at what happened this year and infer what might be in store for the year to come.

2022 was a tale of two halves. January through May/June was one type of market, and July through December was a very different market. It’s not possible to determine the shift’s exact date, but it was within this timeframe.

The 5 Keys to Building a Financial FORTRESS (Part 1)

You may know how to build a real estate portfolio, but how do you build an unshakeable one? Most real estate investors think that buying a few dozen dirt-cheap houses is all they need to do to make millions and live a life full of passive income.
