Real Estate Reckoning: Rate Increases, Inflation & The Threat to the Housing Factor w/Neal Bawa

In today’s economy, there’s a glaring divergence between multi-family and single-family. Unsurprisingly this has added another significant challenge for homeowners and investors alike. You can’t help but question the stability and future prospects of real estate.

With ridiculously high inflation rates in 2024, the situation has become even more dire.  It has pushed many individuals and families to the brink of financial instability.

How do we navigate these turbulent economic waters in 2024? What does the stock market predict? What do rate increases mean for us?

In this episode, technologist, data scientist and CEO of UGro, Grocapitus & MultifamilyU Neal Bawa, joins me to talk about inflation post-covid, and the dichotomy between multi-family and single family homes. We also talk about what happens when there is a hint of recession and the predictability of the stock market.


The economy was more resilient than anybody gave it credit for. -Neal Bawa
