“There is a somewhat predictable swing of the pendulum in real estate investing. It requires creativity, deep analytical aptitude, experience and conviction to unlock value when fear grips the marketplace. This same skillset and extraordinary discipline are required at the other end of the pendulum’s swing, when the herd makes unrealistic assumptions in search of gain that set the stage for the next collapse. There is no one-size-fits-all approach, but the adept investor can find opportunity at almost any phase along the pendulum’s arc.”
