What do we take away from this real estate crash? Well, it’s the same old refrain: if everyone is doing it and talking about a certain investment strategy, it’s probably overblown and too late to get in, which means you should just stay away. There’s no such thing as free money. If it’s too good to be true, it most likely is. As Warren Buffet has famously said: Be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful.

Think about and plan for a possible worse case scenario, and have a backup plan if you’re taking on a lot of leverage. A loan where the ratio of money you put down and money borrowed is extreme. These types of loans are usually adjustable rate mortgages and have a higher interest rate than others.

There is nothing wrong with buying property. Just like after the Dotcom collapse a number of good companies emerged and expanded – Yahoo, Google, Amazon, and Ebay to name a few. The same will come out of the real estate crash. Smart investors will have bought good properties and see those properties appreciate over time.

Real estate is generally based around a 5-10 year plan. What’s wrong, though, is the over zealous attitude of real estate brokers suckering in the naïve and inexperienced and then the government not stepping in to reign in the industry as a whole when it became over blown – there was no regulation on the lenders and the firms that bought the highly risky mortgage securities.
