Creating Wealth Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman

Jason Hartman is joined by investment counselor, Steve, in this episode as they discuss current events from Newser and Zero Hedge.  The talk of a real estate bubble is increasing in volume; however, that issue must be considered in many component parts to be understood, our take… we have a long way to go unless interest rates increase rather dramatically. The Zero Hedge articles include:


  • ·        Big Investors Quietly Slip Out The Back Door On Housing As "Stupid Money" Jumps In
  • ·        The last to the party: Investors and flippers competing for small amount of inventory.


Next, Jason interviews the Austin, Texas Local Market Specialist (LMS) as they look at investor trends both in and out of the greater Austin MSA.  More at:

Jason Hartman talks with Jed Kolko, chief economist of Trulia, about current trends in buying, selling, and new construction in real estate markets around the country. “We’re seeing the biggest increase in construction on the multi-family side,” Jed shares. He says this is definitely a recovery time in the housing markets, although there are some markets that are investor driven that may not last. One red flag still hovering is the upcoming large foreclosure wave in certain markets around the U.S. Jed also shares where consumers are looking hardest, such as the western part of the country and suburbs. There are some urban neighborhoods experiencing growth, but there is still more population growth and interest in suburban neighborhoods. Jed and Jason also discuss seasonal patterns of buying and selling. For more details, listen at:

Doug Wead has served along side some of the greats in modern American politics. Doug has been close with and written books about several "First Families." Doug's work has been praised by everyone from Ladybird Johnson (wife of LBJ) to former Congressman and Presidential Candidate Ron Paul, whom he served as a senior adviser in the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary.

Doug was an adviser for both Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. Wead also worked with George W. Bush for years leading up to his Presidency

Wead has authored more than thirty books, which are known for their primary sources. He has interviewed six presidents and first ladies, nineteen of the presidents children and twelve presidential siblings.   

During the 2008 Presidential Debates, then Congressman, Dr. Ron Paul impressed Doug Wead with his non-interventionist foreign policy platform and caused him to deviate from the "old right wing" which he had served and written about dutifully for decades. As a senior adviser to Dr. Paul during the 2012 campaign for President, he was regularly featured on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News where he defended Paul's foreign policy and monetary policy, among others.

Since the end of the 2012 election cycle, Doug Wead and Ronnie Paul Jr., eldest son of Dr. Paul, have teamed up to form The Liberty Networking Project. They are dedicated to providing those in the self-dubbed "Liberty Movement" with an opportunity to profit from the unprecedented level of net-based enthusiasm and connectedness generated during the 2008 and 2012 grassroots Presidential campaigns of Congressman Paul.
