009 | Buying Counter Cyclical

Buying in a heated market is kind of like jumping off a cliff because everyone else is jumping… 

Many investors start buying any investor stock available (classic case of FOMO!), but the problem is, how do you know that a heated market hasn’t already reached its peak before you even jump in?  

The answer is: Sometimes to get ahead, you’ve got to take the road (or cliff) less travelled! (We might be going overboard with this analogy…)  

In this case, it’s using a counter-cyclical strategy.  

Today we’ll be exploring what this is, the benefits it can bring, and how becoming a borderless investor could be best for you!  

But remember folks: Each state has its own cycle, and it’s not always easy to tell WHERE the market currently is!  

To help you determine this, we’re sharing a fantastic resource called the CoreLogic Monthly Housing & Economic Chart Pack. This pack allows you to see how each state’s property market has performed over the past 30 years!
