There’s a new president in the White House.
His agenda includes a number of items that could boost real estate investment and property values in the U.S. and beyond.
For one, Trump will be taking an aggressive stance on foreign investment in the United States.
“We are going to be taking a much tougher line against foreign ownership in our country,” he said.
He’s also going to start putting in place policies to ensure that people who buy a home don’t get the chance to leave.
But he’s also making some big changes in the way that real estate investments are made, especially in the West.
One of the biggest changes is that Trump is going to appoint a new chair of the Federal Reserve Board and a new head of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, which will be responsible for regulating the financial markets.
He also will be rolling back the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which would have tightened banking regulation and made it easier for people to take money out of the system when they feel it’s too risky.
These changes will impact the real estate industry as well.
“He’s going to push a lot of the deregulation,” says Mark Davis, an associate professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who has studied the real-estate industry.
“And that will impact all of these investment opportunities, and I think that’s a huge thing for the industry, too.”
These new changes will increase competition for land in the market, which is something that was not the case a few years ago, he says.
“It’s going from a very competitive environment where it was hard to find land, where there was a very limited supply of land, and you could be priced out of buying land,” he says, “to now being able to get land more cheaply.”
And Davis says that will have a huge impact on how people make money.
“I think the impact will be really, really big,” he predicts.
“In a way, it’s a kind of reverse auction, where you can now go out and find a property that is going for $1 million or $2 million.”
The impact of these changes is already being felt.
“The real estate market in the Northwest, for example, is actually a lot cheaper than it was when Trump was running,” Davis says.
He says that’s because real estate prices are going up.
“So, if you have a home that’s going for a high price, it means you’re going to get a better property, and if you don’t have that, then you’ll still have to live in your car or a boat or on a plane.”
That may not seem like much, but it can add up.
The Northwest, like the rest of the U
