In this episode, the big question is what can we expect from the real estate market in 2018.
As predicted, 2017 made for huge strides in the Phoenix metropolitan real estate market, more specifically in the west valley the cites that directly surround Luke Air Force Base saw huge appreciation rates in compared to past years.
Cities like Buckeye, Surprise, Waddell, Goodyear, and all of those communities that are right around Luke, saw for great appreciation rates. So, what does this actually mean? Well, for those of you that hopped off the fence and bought late 2016 or throughout 2017, it means that you have the grand gift of flexibility. You’re going to be able to choose whether you want to cash in that nice little nest egg of equity in your home when those PCS orders drop. Or whether you want to hang on to it and keep making money by renting it out. This is an invaluable gift that you wouldn’t have gotten in many other places in the United States.
Now for those of you still on the fence or that are still enjoying making their land lord or on-base housing rich, this mean that now is really the time to start researching your options and getting yourself into a position to invest into real estate using your VA loan benefits. So now is the time, make 2018 your year.
