Episode 126: Ron Walraven

Apr 20, 2023Podcast

Real estate has always been considered a safe asset, offering a stable return with the potential to grow over time. But that is not always a walk in the park. Today’s real estate market can be volatile, and your property could be worth less than you paid for it when conditions change.

Undoubtedly, we are experiencing a recession due to inflation and high-interest rates in the economy. Real estate has been affected in terms of demand, supply, and even financing. These new uncertainties demand a different approach and transition. You need to diversify your investment portfolio if you are to survive. Ron Walraven joins us for a chat on the current market, what investors need to be doing, and the predictions we can have in the next 24 months.

Ron is a full-time investor & Broker with 20+ years of Distressed/REO residential sales and management, with consistent closing excellence. He has many years of experience running a team of up to 9 people. From the market uncertainties in real estate, Ron took a different path in the last eight years to investing instead of REO/retail sales because the current market is very challenging in acquiring assets to resell.
