“Even in a recession, in most cases, property values continue to increase. So, if you’re getting into the market right now, it’s a pretty safe bet that you’re going to have an appreciating asset one year from now and the longer you’re in the market, the more you’re going to be able to ride the little bit of volatility that happens and you’re going to have an asset five years from now that most analysts are projecting is going to be an increase of anywhere from roughly 20%-30%.”- Maynard Wagner
