The title of this article is a little misleading, but that is because I am going to discuss two very different markets: Real Estate in the United States and Forex. These two markets are, to me, far more similar than different. Even though they are both governed by government regulation, they have their own very different sets of rules.
So let’s take a look at what I mean by saying Real Estate and Forex are very similar. The Government regulation for the US market is similar to that of Europe’s. Every state has some form of Real Estate Regulation. This regulation involves things like building and zoning laws, insurance requirements, and similar items.
However, many of these rules are simply to make sure the property is safe to live in. If a house is being built on a certain lot, for example, a builder needs to get building permits. In exchange for all of this regulation, homes are fairly cheap to build, so there is little incentive for the seller to have to pay excessive taxes or costs.
Also, when we look at Real Estate in the US, we see that the market for properties that are sold and moved into are quite large. Many of the people buying and selling properties do not actually live in the properties for very long.
In contrast, in the US, when a person wants to buy a house, but the price is not right, they can look into selling their home in an expedited fashion. They can also use their home as collateral for a loan, which makes it easy to obtain.
However, as I said before, when we look at Real Estate in the US, we see that there is less regulation than Europe’s. With that said, there are also restrictions, in many cases, on the type of properties that can be used as collateral for a loan. It would be hard to obtain a mortgage on a home for $200k when you are making less than that.
In Europe, the system does not work exactly the same way. When a person gets a home loan, the borrower can use the home as collateral. However, there are limits to how much they can borrow, and if they default on the loan, the house will be sold.
In Europe, if a borrower defaults on a loan, the lender will be forced to sell the property in order to recover their money. As a result, the value of the property goes down, and the borrower’s credit score goes down. The best thing about buying property in Europe is that the values do not get any lower.
