It is a new year. Are you still keeping your new resolutions? We usually focus on our health resolutions but what about your wealth resolutions? Are you interested in making your financial resolutions matter in 2016? Here is my personal invitation to join me at one of my upcoming Investment Workshops on building wealth over time. The two part workshop focuses in financial wealth and establishing your goals and working towards them. Creating and nurturing an investors mindset versus a consumers mindset. 

February 27 (10am start), March 2 (6pm start) or March 5 (10am start) are up next and open for registration. They will be held in Lincoln Park with details to follow. There are no fees for the workshops and no obligations (no pressure and promise no sales).

Make a difference in your life and come let’s talk about financial freedom and building wealth through real estate investments.

Teardown’s were strong in Lakeview and Roscoe Village since that is primarily where the old stock inventory exists. Builders are having a much more difficult time in areas like Lincoln Park to find those gems. They are going to property owners of larger lot sized properties and overpaying for them because their numbers work on their proformas although some I’ve seen lately are questionable. 

As we head into a shaky 2016 how many of these builders will learn from the past and over extend? Tread cautiously. The waters are stirring up and the boats could capsize pretty quickly once again depending on which direction we head.
