It’s what we all want to know. Is it possible to time the real estate market? If so, how do we pinpoint the best times to invest and sell?

Robert ‘Bob’ Campbell was born into real estate. Over the last 70 years he has developed, and proven a system for timing the real estate market. We caught up with him live for this episode of the DistressedPro Professional Podcast to find out.

Mastering the Market

Some don’t believe it is possible to time the market. The vast majority are very, very bad at it. Robert Campbell says it is possible.

Campbell grew up with a father in the home building business. He lived and breathed real estate every day, and spent 10 years as a spec builder himself. He holds a degree in Economics from UCLA, and a MBA in real estate finance from the University of San Diego. After graduating he dived into investing with an apartment building, and made a solid profit in the first year.

Yet, after making a mistake of his own, Robert dug into the data to figure out real estate’s cyclical nature. He pioneered the ‘Campbell Method’, which has been taught at the University of San Diego.

Buy Low, Sell High

Contrary to those which promote buying and holding real estate (or stocks) forever, Campbell thinks it is smartest to buy low, and sell high.

What most miss is that the downside losses are so great that it can take them 5, 15, or half a lifetime to recover from. They sell out too late, and get in way too late. Even the cash flow they may get by holding on in between pales in comparison to taking a 40% or 50% hit to asset and portfolio value.

So, how can investors more accurately time the real estate market, and know when the best times to buy and sell are?

In this exclusive episode Robert Campbell reveals:

  • The five key real estate indicators to track
  • The single most important number to monitor
  • Myths about interest rate trends
  • Why goals are fine, but systems are for winners
  • How to get the edge over 98% of everyone in the market
  • The one market Campbell is tracking that isn’t looking bubbly
  • How to know when to move with 90% certainty
