Episode 53 - Recessions and Real Estate over the Years

The FasterFreedom Show: Passive Income Through Real Estate Investing

Jan 18 2023 • 27 mins

Did you know that recessions have little or no correlation to the real estate market? There’s so much fear on social media regarding whether we are or aren’t in a recession — and why, therefore, it’s not wise to be investing in real estate.

Sam and Lucas are going old school on this episode of The FasterFreedom Show. They're dropping the knowledge by giving us a FasterFreedom history lesson on, you guessed it, the history of US recessions!

What we learn is that recessions happen. They’re cyclical. What happens, though, if you follow the numbers, is that real estate goes up like crazy between recessions, so it's still a good, resilient investment to make. So actually, none of what we’re experiencing now in the markets is new — it’s just packaged differently.

Now then, what should you be looking at as your next investment? Where’s the opportunity? Sam and Lucas teach us to be greedy when other people are fearful — and vice versa. Join the FasterFreedom Show for some fascinating historical perspectives, and learn how to play ‘The Net Worth Game.’ Please join us!
