8 Cities Where Real Estate is Expected to Recover the Quickest after Covid 19 with Andrew Holmes


Today I want to focus on the 8 cities where real estate is expected to recover the quickest after Covid-19, and the 4 factors that will likely determine why they are the first to recover.

The shutdowns from Covid-19 began around the middle of March in most areas. So, it has been about 3 months since this crisis began as I write this.  Real estate has been severely impacted by almost every major city across the country. Investors are wondering what their business will look like 3 months, 6 months, and even 1 year from today. These are very uncertain times.

My guest today is Chicago investor, Andrew Holmes. Andrew is the founder of Chicago REIA, and he is an active investor with more than 240 rentals in his portfolio. Not only has he been in this business for a long time, he is also a very data-driven person.  Listen in as we discuss what he believes will be the determining factors in the recovery process during the next 12 to 24 months.
