Why Donald Trump is good for Real Estate 

The month of October saw property sales in Houston stagnate for the market high and low-end properties while homes priced between $150, 000 and $500,000 saw a positive trend in sales. Single-family homes sales in October totaled 5,916 units compared to 5,893 units the year earlier, according to an October Monthly Market Comparison by Houston Association of REALTORS®.

Part of this stagnation is due to the anxiety created by the presidential polls. Trulia.comcurrently lists 9,246 homes for sale in Houston, with an average price of $412,272 and a median rent per month of $1,600. The trend further indicates a 6% rise in the listing price and 0% increase in rent per month.

Now that Mr. Trump is president, he is likely to sweeten the deal even more. The trump movement may bring with it tax reforms and even lesser tax brackets. Theoretically, this should leave the citizens with more capital to invest in real estate; so this is one of the likely outcomes.

Investment in the luxury market could as well turn very lucrative if we are to go with the standards that the Trump Organization sets in the world property market. Although Mr. Trump’s policies on reforms are too vague to draw a conclusion, you can bet that he has his eyes focused on infrastructure improvement, including real estate.

Mr. Lawrence Yun, a contributor to the Forbes magazine, expresses an optimist view of the series of reforms.

•  It’s highly likely that the new administration will offer short-term stimulus to the economy in the form of tax cuts and improved government spending on infrastructure. The increased vibrancy will see more jobs reclaimed, more taxes collected and more spending on real estate.

•  Community colleges might receive more support from the government to train more skilled workers, to work as masons, welders, plumbers, bricklayers, and electricians- all who are necessary for quality real estate.

•  There could be less regulatory land-use and zoning which restricts home construction; considerably reducing the construction costs of hiring technical skills and purchasing lumber, cement and other building components.

•  Reforms of the Dodd-Frank Financial Act could potentially boost the industry by allowing more banks to give affordable loans. The financial reforms should translate to even more affordable housing.

•  The stock market will continue being optimistic in an uncertain future. Successful economic reforms are good for business- there will be more risk taking, and the stock market thrives on the fine line between risks and potential gains.

Ultimately, a Trump Administration is just what America needs for the ailing property market to redeem lost glory.
