Perhaps you’ve seen the movie starring a young Tom Hanks – “The Money Pit,” whereby he struggles with the repairs in an old dilapidated mansion that’s falling to pieces. Seems like the perfect deal at first, but only until the staircase starts to collapse and the chimney caves in. There’s an important lesson to be learned here: Never purchase any house (or piece of land) without doing your homework first.

Snapping up some vacant land is not quite the same as buying a house, but the rules are similar – know what it is you’re getting into.

The purchase of a vacant lot is a complex decision, just as is any purchase of real estate. To begin with, you buy a house to live in it, or presumably so anyhow. With a piece of land, you can build your own house, utilize it as a long-term investment, or perhaps set up a business.

Owning land comes with different issues to when buying a house. There may be a variety of restrictions which apply to the lot that’s vacant. In fact, perhaps you can’t even build a house there at all.

Irrespective your intentions, there’s a lot to learn prior to investing in property. Here, we briefly consider a couple of those matters.

It’s much to do about location

This is likely to be the most basic of concerns when purchasing land. If you’re intent on making an investment, then you certainly do not wish to buy a piece of land that comes with little to no resale value.

If you wish to start up in business, you don’t want to be buying land which is completely isolated from any potential customers.

If you’re intentions are to build a house, do not be buying up land that you’re unable to build on.

Prior to investing in a piece of land, develop a generalized concept of where that purchase is going to be. If it’s land for sale in California, use whatever online resources you can to help you, such as Google Maps for starters, then head out for an exploratory drive.

As by way of example, let’s say you want to buy land to then build a house. You’ll perhaps want to consider your job, access to local schools, access to shops, restaurants, hospitals, and so forth.

In other words, you’ll be shopping for the piece of land, but you’ll also be shopping for the local community. (more…)

The selling in Gold finally bottomed this week, at least temporarily. The daily chart shows that Gold has been locked in a relentless decline for more than 20 trading days, so a pause was expected. Even though Gold’s decline looks severe, from a percentage standpoint, it was not anything too unusual.

There is no shortage of creative bullish rationales to “explain away” the current decline, but as Cycle followers know, Gold remains in a bear market and the current decline is tracking past Cycles well. The ebb & flow of the bear market Cycles have been consistent, and the challenge has been in trying to determine when the Daily Cycles are making a turn.

I am convinced that Gold just completed a Daily Cycle and has now begun its 4th, and final, DC of the current Investor Cycle. There is an outside chance that Gold just completed an ICL so won’t have another DC lower, but my primary view is that the new DC is the 4th of the IC. That being the case, I expect the new DC to be extremely Left Translated and short in duration. History shows many final Daily Cycles as short as 13 days, and because Gold is finally showing some ICL type behaviors, I expect the current DC will be just 15-18 days. Unfortunately, I see price falling sharply to a level under $1,000.


11-21 Gold Daily

For several weeks, it has been clear that Gold was not ready to form an Investor Cycle Low. One of the primary tools suggesting that conclusion is Sentiment, which has not been negative enough for an ICL. This week, however, Sentiment turned decisively lower in what is clearly the final run to an Investor Cycle Low. (more…)

Purchasing an office building is a great investment. You can rent office space and collect a sizable income for the rest of your life (assuming you continue to own the property). If you make the right investment choices, you can continue to charge higher and higher rents over the years, growing your income significantly and securing your financial freedom. Have enough properties and you’ll retire early and create the life you’ve always wanted.

Yet just like with any real estate purchase, you have to carefully research your options for office space to ensure you are making the right choice. The wrong purchase can cause you to lose everything.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when looking for office space investments:


The first rule of any real estate is location, location, location. Yet finding a good location isn’t always simple. You might think a location is great because development is booming and rents are rising. Yet in a year or two, a major project could stall and take all the local property values with it.

You need to look beyond what is hot now and do your research to know what the long-term trends for the area are. Look for areas that have a consistent history of growth, such as downtown Chicago office space rentals.


When you check out a property, you need to consider what type of tenants the building is likely to attract, as well as what types of tenants are in the surrounding area. (more…)
