  • This is part of the plan to wipe out the middle class.

  • This is worse than anyone thinks it could be. I've been monitoring the entire state of GA for the last four years... and over the last year (speeding up rapidly this year in 2021)... almost every home under $100,00 is snapped up, put under contract w/i a few days, and closed/sold at ridiculous prices that don't reflect the actual value of those homes. It is outrageous. And every single home under $80,000 gets snapped up almost the day it posts online. They have converted ALL homes for low income folks into rental property, no matter how rural those homes are. There is no escaping this conspiratorial monopoly in the state of GA.

  • I took on a mortgage for my house 6 years ago in a new development right before this investor trend became hot, but I knew it had already started then because of how many homes I was shown in established neighborhoods that had been bought by investors to rent out, and were being rented out by the room. Since then, I've seen at least half the newly built houses here snapped up by investment companies and the houses being sold by former owner-occupants bought by individual investors. I sincerely agree that there should be laws about how many homes a single investor can own as rentals, and laws forcing investment companies to sell to owner-occupants after a short period. And I think there should be laws against absentee homeowners renting rooms out individually in SR neighborhoods. That trend will force owner-occupants to sell as well as discourage renting to families at reasonable prices. So, for this newish home-owner, the problems of renters are my problems as well. I want a quiet, stable, neighborhood where I know my neighbors want the same and corporations don't have votes in the HOA.

  • Been doing my due diligence all along and been priced out of the market repeatedly over the past decade. Finally gave up on the dream this past year as prices and demand had both risen dramatically and suddenly, just as I was about to make another attempt at it. I just don't get it. We were pushed to do this, and are now mocked for being unable to, albeit through no fault of our own. Do they think we don't see what they're doing? They clearly don't care about consequences, to us or to themselves. They don't even seem to see the big picture. After them, the deluge, I suppose. And so it goes, in these endless cycles...

And no banks won't lend here in Canada for high end homes unless you qualify got up to a potential 4 percent rate increase... No risk for a 2008 situation. Government won't do much they love the extra property tax rates they can collect... Most won't loan unless you have significant down much more than 20 percent (I put down around 50 percent cash) and high steady income...

  • I noticed this in the 70s as a kid when I saw the price of houses in London. If I'd been smart I would have taken advantage of it. Wages for general population have not kept pace with house prices and this is one of the biggest crises in capitalism. Residential properties has become an item for speculation rather than mainly residential purposes. Housing used to be 10% of a household budget now it's over 50% for most people. Add in rising costs of utilities and that is why so many cannot save any money whatsoever. Never mind put together a deposit for a house. The funny thing is young people are actually being mocked for not leaving home after they are 18 by people who have the privelige of doing so. The individual is blamed rather than the system.

  • I bought a house about 4 years ago in suburbs to send my kids to a good school system. $185k back then. We put 20% down and all. Today this house is probably worth $240,00. Yay for me but not really because it’s not like I could sell it and get a bigger house for my 2 kids, everything would be out of our price range now. Especially with the 2 kiddos in daycare. Not to mention COVID has put my career on shaky ground for the foreseeable future. The only thing that makes sense going forward is that if COVID ends up costing me my career and a global depression , I might be better off cashing in my IRA/401k accounts and paying off the mortgage. It’s not like I could afford to rent anything for the $900 a month mortgage I have right now. At least we would continue to own something worth money and my kids would have a house to live in.

I pay insurance separate $88 monthly. Like you - I receive letters, texts and calls to buy my home. I would not be crazy as to transition from my present $335 to excess of $900 for a one bedroom. Keep your home unless they offer full value plus some.

  • If you limit the amount of housing a business can buy, unfortunately that won't stop people from owning as many properties as they want by creating multiple businesses to own them. People are already doing it, because it helps protect their assets in the event of getting sued. A car dealership who screwed me over did it. They changed the name of their business multiple times, and wiped their slate clean of any bad history. It's disgusting how slimebags can get away with shit like this! There's loopholes everywhere that most people aren't aware of.... and it's not information that's given freely. This is the stuff they don't teach you in schools, that only the wealthy know about.

  • I know in my area when we were looking to buy, every seller we looked at in our price range (fairly low, I'm on Social Security) was looking for cash offers only and appealing to investors. The seller agents didn't even want to talk to us or our agent because they were hoping to get cash investors involved, not just some regular people looking to buy a home to raise a family in. Now everything is out of our price range (even though buying would have lowered our monthly costs) and we're stuck in a rental where the rent just keeps going up year after year. My social security went up $20 this year and my rent went up $30. I don't know what we're going to do if it keeps going like this.

  • I say no. I say look forward to a better future with an Egalitarian Economic system that benefits the people from affordable housing, accessible health care, live able wages to replace Capitalism *IF* we are willing to start discussing it on a national level. We can choose the start of something much better OR: cling on to Capitalism's trajectory, stages and conclusions. It may sound impossible, but everything starts with some good ideas and discussion. What have the people got to lose?

    • We had reasonably affordable housing in most cities (not CA, or NY but most other places) until the first round of the housing investment scandals hit in 2006-08. Hundreds of thousands of homeowners with predatory sub-prime loans lost their homes and with it their life savings that had either been used for their down payment or used up in an attempt to keep their homes. The investors who caused the problem in the first place then swooped in and bought up all of those foreclosed homes. Rents went through the roof because all of those foreclosed homeowners now needed to rent homes. Essentially the investors were rewarded three times for destroying the core stability of the nation, and they are practically salivating at the chance to do it again as soon as the moratorium on evictions and foreclosures is lifted.

    • @EarthquakeStar : You made many valid points. Albeit, states and the federal will still need to ensure no historic collapse of the housing market for the middle class down to the poor.

    • Right, and that's why investors are buying them up and running the old fix and flip. People watch it on TV every day but act like it's new or sinister. It's investing 101, buy low & sell high. And not every investor is replacing old properties with new properties that no one can afford. There are investors who aim to provide affordable housing even though it eats into their profits a little. More and more former military people are getting into investing because they want to help AND make money. Me, I'm learning how to do what they're doing because I believe that when more people have more money we really can help more people. But it's naive to think there's ever gain without loss and wrong to villify anyone buying a foreclosed home; it's available and there to be bought, just like something you get at a pawn shop. Some poor soul sold something valuable because they needed the money and that's sad, but it's not theirs anymore and you're not evil for buying it. Some investors are scumbags, but not all of them are. Fundrise has one of the most affordable entry rates at $500 for virtual real estate investors, because they're buying properties like she mentioned. So to anyone who wants to grow their money to afford a better home one day, there's an option worth looking at. Anyone can do it, but they'd rather do nothing and complain "the man" is keeping them down. We grow our money, we grow our possibilities. 😎 Love this show, but I'm not 100% with them on this one.

  • You think this is bad on the continent? Try taking a look at the housing market in Hawaii... $920,000 as the MEDIAN PRICE for a single-family home, anyone??! Hawaii natives are literally being priced out of not only potential homes, but their island as well. With the already insane high cost-of-living, it really is looking hopeless for long-time locals to stay here...

  • Land Value Tax should replace property taxes. Property law should stipulate that a home resided in carries one level of tax, and those that are not occupied 4 months or so a year and in increasing numbers are given tax multiples since unoccupied homes destroy the economic activity a resident provides. The law would make the most sense at the federal level. Own one or two apt complexes or houses. Fine. But more than that, is increasingly and prohibitively expensive.

    • @confused cynic right, yet extremely wealthy people are buying up homes, apparently in lots and entire blocks in REITs or as individuals essentially gaming the market on a naturally limited resource. i think they are also able to list these properties in some other category than vacation

    • I have lived in Mesa my whole life. My husband and I sold our home several years back to move to Tucson, but ended up coming back a year later to care for elderly parents. We have watched as we have been slowly priced out of the market just over the past 5 years. I was just talking to my Mom yesterday about her health improvements since her stroke a couple years ago and her feeling guilty about my husband and I having to live in the small guest house on their property when we were used to having acreage of our own. She was trying to convince me that she and my father with advanced Parkinsons Disease would be fine if we bought our own place again as long as it was somewhere nearby. I had to try to explain that there was no buying a place nearby anymore. We are completely priced out of anything in the Phoenix Metro area now, and Tucson prices have nearly doubled in the past couple years now too. Buying another home will now mean moving at least 3 hours away to the outskirts of Tucson at best and I think even that window is closing quickly. It is very scary, but I try to put it out of my head most days because there is not a single decision I could go back and change. Family is family.

    • @locutus94 The market doesn't crash in AZ because of our proximity to CA. In the last crash in 2008, all the people pushed out of the CA housing market moved into AZ and drove our prices up so high that AZ citizens were priced out of our own state. PHX is only 5 hours from San Diego by car, even shorter by commuter jet. Californians learned they could buy houses in AZ and commute to San Diego therefore keeping their CA income while buying up affordable AZ assets that Arizona residents can no longer afford because the average pay in Arizona is nowhere near what the average pay is in California.

  • All, cash investor buyers.. a good chunk are not even residents of the US or in the US. It’s international wealth stashing cash in US property, and since housing rent is solid “interest” income an easy pick for extreme wealth to live off “the fat of the land”. Welcome to the new landed gentry and vassal estates. This has been going on for years.

  • The real estate and credit markets crashed occurred under George W Bush's tenure.. But when Democrats had an opportunity to put an end to this wild real estate speculation, they failed to. During Obama, failing banks and brokerages were given treasury backed credit facilities to shore up their balance sheets. Banks and brokerage firms were never made to pay for their financial mischief of 2006-2009. No one went to jail for the financial collapse of 2006 to 2009. In 2021, we see deja vu. A financial meltdown in the real estate and credit markets is soon to come.

  • Love TYT but here's the reality. Left and right caused what's happening and it's here to stay. Left messed up big time in pandemic with seeking rent relief without seeking mortgage/tax/insurance relief for mom-and-pop landlords who will now sell to pension funds and REITs -- who are cash buyers. Interest rate rise - no problem. Dip in the housing market - again, no problem. In a particular neighborhood, pension funds and REITs can keep 20% of rental units empty, raise rents 20%, cut maintenance costs 20%, and make more money with fewer headaches. Already too much legislation has made the supply so expensive that housing is built mainly for the upper-middle class and rich -- the top 10%. Your 401k also funds REITs that compete with you to buy a home. Two trends to watch are shared homeownership and rent always. With shared homeownership, one owns 1/8th share in a home. Own 8 shares. It will work like a timeshare allowing one to stay 6 weeks at one place at a time. With remote work, it is a favorable option for those willing to explore the country. For high earners, just rent and invest in REITs. You have residential assets without the headache of maintaining your own home or being a landlord. Yes, the rich/poor divide grows wider and no political party has an answer or is even looking for any answers.

    • @Lynette Yeh.. and Russians (read oligarchs of all sorts). Asians prize property, and a lot of successful people in China who understandably want to safe guard their money (on the positive side) but the US is probably the only nation with little to no restrictions on foreign ownership of property. We had that freak out when Japan was spanking US business, but we forgot about it when Japan waned as a concern. Now is much different, because wealth has concentrated so much more, the world is more volatile and investment opportunities are thin.

    • @seymore glass Rich foreigners stashing cash in US property has been reported on for well over a decade. Trump’s indulgence of wealth didn’t start this and only accentuates it. Perhaps you are upset that I’m saying TYT didn’t catch a new problem? Even then I’d disagree because the situation is disgusting and needs to be addressed. It’s much like reforming voting to ranked choice. TYT will mumble about it being important then fail to say anything on the topic for months on end. Ranked choice has been filed several years in a row, but signature campaigns never materialize. TYT is blind to it. So they report on the property crisis and will forget about it too.

    • @Game ON Case Well, I don’t know what aspect of what I said is a shit show. I was born in the state have lived here all my life which spanned the advent of prop 13. Foreign buyers with cash have been snapping up property for a good decade or more with an acquaintance in LA stating that realtors see about 30% of buyers being foreigners paying cash. This is in my mind a shit show. He made the observation midway through Trump’s term. Extreme wealth seeks ways to stash it safely. Property is a traditional stash. Frankly Trump in the WH has no effect on the issue and didn’t when he was in office.

  • Ya investors set the rent based on their returns.. and other metrics. So basically make more money to pay rent, move in with filthy roommates, or move to mexico. The choice is always yours 😀 Again Blame cash investor types like Meet Kevin and Graham Stephen on ALworld promoting this crap.

  • We are watching, and letting, the wealthy use the market to reimpose feudalism. Unless the working class unites as a powerful block, the interests of the wealthy will enslave the majority of the people, in the name of profits and freedom. Recognize this is organized class warfare against us by capital, and they are purposely impoverishing the masses to become their serfs, bound to serve the tiny owner class just to live. If we arent similarly well organized, and strategic, they will perform it to the full; they are Orwell's 1984, not the communists.
