Regular readers of mine will know there are more than a few problems with today's housing market. But some problems can be very profitable for you...
Millennials are finally entering the housing market and are now the largest percentage of new buyers according to the National Association of Realtors. The problem is that they are arriving just as a shortage develops and prices have made affordability an issue, especially for first-time homebuyers.

Selling a product that is high demand is pretty good for salespeople, and I think the real estate brokerage business could be pretty good for a long time.
Fortunately for us, current uncertainty about the near-term future of housing prices is providing an opportunity to get a cut of a significant percentage of homes sold over the next few years at a bargain price.
With demand outpacing supply, this company is expected to grow earnings by about 20% a year over the next five years.
That's three times better than its overpriced competition too...
