Today’s question is “How Will the Brexit effect US Real Estate?

In this video Shaun talks about some of the recent and long term effects of the “Brexit” in the USA.


Some of the main points covered in this video are:

1)      What is the “Brexit”?

2)      What were the short term effects?

3)      How does it affect US Real Estate?

4)      What might be the long term issues?


The Brexit was the recent vote by the citizens of the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.  The immediate aftermath of the vote spooked people and there was a sharp decline in the equity markets worldwide, for a couple of days.  People quickly stopped freaking out and they returned to where they had been quickly and are actually higher than before the vote already.

In terms of real estate in the USA mortgage rates did dip after the vote and those have stayed a bit lower than they had been.  This could persist for a while and keep money cheap.  If nothing else it will be another excuse for the FED to keep interest rates low rather than raise them as the assured everyone was the plan starting back around this time last year.  The other possible real estate related consequence is there is a theory that foreign money might not flow into London real estate the way it has been and some of that could flow into various US markets.  It is to early to say for sure on that one but it is a very plausible theory.
