Is government too big, too small or just right?  And what does this have to do with real estate investing?

To help us explore this controversial and timely topic, Steve Forbes comes back to share his thoughts, as does first time guest Tom Woods. 

In a very polarized election year for the U.S., many people are paying close attention.  As real estate investors, we care about how rules, regulations and even rhetoric affect our investments.  

Property taxes, zoning, rent control, eminent domain, environmental controls, fair housing; Fannie, Freddie, FHA and much more are all examples of how government affects real estate.  

To win at the game of real estate investing, you need to know the rules.  And when the rules are subject to change (and they are), it’s important to anticipate trends and adjust accordingly.

The bottom line which affects your bottom line is that government is in the market to stay, so don’t get frustrated.  Be fascinated.

Because, as we learn, confusion in the market creates opportunity for the alert - and tension in the process can actually be a very good thing.
