What can you do with your investment portfolio in the current market? Where can you invest your fresh money? Should you wait for the right time or pull the trigger when good deals come your way? How long will you wait before the market returns to normal?
Mike Zlotnik says that it depends. The market obviously matters before investing, but if you sit on your capital and wait for perfect timing, how will you know it is perfect? You should deploy some of your capital in deals, even during a recession. Though Q3 and Q4 2023 are expected to be formally recession quarters, you must always be ready because you will start seeing good deals coming to you.
Mike Zlotnik has been a debt and equity investor in real estate since 2000. He started his career and has spent nearly 15 years in the information technology field managing Risk, Business Intelligence, and Quality of complex systems, software, and processes.
