Real Estate 360 Live With Louis Cammarosano 4/23/12

On Monday April 23, 2012, Louis Cammarosano, General Manager of HomeGain, was a guest on the Real Estate 360 Live radio show on The Big Talker 1580 WHFS AM, hosted by Ryan Sloper.

Listen to the show.

Part 1 (14:40)

Ryan notes that the Fed is going to meet again next week and that many experts expect another round of quantitative easing. Louis thinks that the Fed won’t announce QE3 and that a lot of capital is flowing into the US as a result of the problems in Europe and that indeed many economists expect the US dollar to appreciate in value. Louis is not certain that is a well founded belief, but one that is prevalent.

Louis notes that an announcement of QE3 might cause a bit of a panic because it would be an admission that the recovery is not taking hold and oil prices would rise. Louis thinks that although the Fed may want to do QE3 they will probably hold off until after the election in November.  Louis notes that the average investor is either short on cash or can not save as interest rates are low so they put their money in the stock market which drives valuations higher.

Louis notes that if you really wanted a strong dollar you would want higher interest rates so people would save money and invest in treasuries, rather than the Fed printing money out of thin air to buy them and thereby devaluing the dollar. Ryan notes that the dollar is appreciating vs the Euro. Louis notes that the dollar is not however strengthening against gold silver and oil. Louis notes that the amount of gold being mined is not as great as the amount of money being printed.

Louis and Ryan note the rising rental market. Louis notes that college grads will also put pressure on the rental market as most won’t be in a position to buy homes as they have student loans to pay and poor job prospects and will more often than not be renting.  Louis notes that the American Dream of home ownership is in jeopardy for young people.

Part 2 (11:52)

Louis and Ryan discuss the high unemployment rate of recent college graduates. Louis notes that many college grads are being encouraged to go back to school (and take on more debt) and gain more irrelevant job experience. Louis notes the difference between education and job training. Louis notes that most of what you learn in school is not helpful on the job.

Louis notes that most students are not very interested in academics but rather are interested in getting a diploma to help them get a job.  Louis notes that every employer has its own required skills that don’t often match the skills learned in college. Louis notes that as the college degree becomes less and less valuable, tuition prices have nevertheless continued to rise!

Louis blames the availability of loans for the increase in college tuition. Louis notes that the quality of education has not risen with the price. Louis notes that college tuition prices are not market driven.

Louis notes that government subsidization of education is a transfer payment to the educational industry. Louis also notes that the economics that one learns in college is mostly Keynesian, not Austrian. Louis notes that economic professors are the direct beneficiaries of the government loaning money to students so they can pay to go to college to take their classes.

Part 3 (13:35)

Ryan and Louis comments on Duncan Hunter’s Real Unemployment Calculation Act to include the people who are not looking for jobs anymore as part of the percentage of unemployed. Louis notes that this will help determine the real unemployment rate.

Louis notes that a similar bill should be introduced so that the inflation rate would be more accurately reported. Ryan and Louis discuss the “experts” (including Warren Buffet) views on housing. Louis describes how you can find the right realtor by using HomeGain.

Ryan reads some HomeGain testimonials. Louis notes that buying a home is not intended to be a speculative endeavor but rather an expense of shelter-which can be held constant with a 30 year fixed mortgage.

Part 4 (12:19)

Ryan reviews reasons to buy a home. Louis notes that the primary reason is not always financial. Louis notes that a long term low interest mortgage makes sense as you lock down a low cost of shelter long term. Ryan notes the six things not to do after you apply for a mortgage.
