    I see that Berkshire Hathaway is now providing brokerage services in most
    major markets. This video is based on REIT’s and strategies that most real
    estate investors will never reach. But the fact that Berkshire has entered
    the real estate market is a good sign!

    I’m able to get regarding this subject matter. So whatever insights I am
    able to get from your video clips is very appreciated. Keep up the great

    I love the point about “silly valuations… by people that don’t really
    understand what its like to own one (a real estate company).” It underlines
    for me that not all property is created equal. The qualitative analysis of
    a real estate portfolio in this case is more important that the
    quantitative one. Its risky to aggregate and act like its all the same when
    each individual unit you’re considering is a large portion of the pie, and
    each one is different.This idea is supported by the fact that real estate
    hedge funds specialize; it helps them to lower risk, transactional costs,
    and facilitate consistency. I think that is why many investors shy away
    from real estate: the learning curve, and the TIME. It is a barrier to
    entry that can be profitable if surmounted, and its resources like this
    that help me do it!

    I actually have truly enjoyed watching your video about real estate
    property.I just started in real estate and found your insights to be very
    helpful. I look forward to watching much more of your videos. Is it safe to
    ask just how long you have been in this industry?

    Buffett doesn’t care whether something is large-cap, small-cap, micro-cap,
    or whatever. What is more important is whether it is a good business and
    whether he can understand it. On balance, large cap businesses have done
    much better recently than anyone would have ever dreamed of. This has led
    to much higher valuations. Whether this is a permanent development is
    another question.

    There has been enormous securitizations of debt in the real estate
    industry. It has been a bad idea to own real estate through a corporate
    structure because there is a double taxation problem. REITS have somewhat
    solved this problem, but it is still usually better to own the real estate
    yourself rather than to invest through a third party intermediary that is
    going to take a slice of the cake.

    There are a lot of silly valuations placed on real estate companies by
    people who don’t understand the business whatsoever. They just don’t
    understand how illiquid property like this really is, so you can’t value it
    like you would a liquid stock. But Buffett and Munger understand real
    estate and would be open to opportunities that might present themselves.

    I agree with you that Buffet is good and you are very modest. :) I think
    maybe my point can be taken too rash though. To me, either no one is as
    good as you think they are or in fact you can be as good as them given
    enough time, work and study. Cheers back at you!

    Understanding the business is something that many investors fail. We can
    learn a lot about business and investing by listening to Warren Buffett.

    The only ways the Fed can slow inflation is to raise reserve requirements,
    increase discount rates or sell their govt bonds, but they know they cant
    do it, because the rates will spike. They’ve been buying 80-90% of the long
    term bonds. They are the only market. There’s no one to sell to. That is
    why recently they said they may hold the bonds till maturity. As for the
    SEC thing, I’ll post a link on my blog’s latest post, because I can’t link
    it here on youtube.

  20. JinGwee says:

    i’ve corrected him. Please google “silvernjin blogspot buffett” and click
    on the top few links to see my research. Thanks.

  21. JinGwee says:

    Warren Buffett’s dad was an Austrian Economics follower. He tried to get
    people from the Austrian school to teach his son, but apparently his son
    refused to accept it.

  22. Jim Warlick says:

    My second “point” was an observation. I do not think that the current bond
    rate is sustainable and I think there are more efficient ways to slow the
    increase in inflation. And your comment on the SEC, please unveil the
    monster lurking in the shadows. I would like to see him. (actually see him,
    not here about him)

  23. Jim Warlick says:

    What do you suppose the correct path of action would have been? Let them
    fail? Let the American people fall into a state of uncertainty on any
    financial matter? The people who usually fall in this category call
    themselves “Anarco-capitalist”. If you fall in this category, read Adam
    Smith’s (father of capitalism) book “The Wealth of Nations”. If this
    doesn’t do it for you, read on Keynesian economics (commonly adapted by
    Columbia economist, which Warren Buffet is). Don’t assume truth is known.

  24. Jimmy Rossfield says:

    Yes Warren Buffett is not only very financially literate, but also is very
    modest in his actions.

  25. rmcneil1989 says:

    Hi, from what I wrote I can see why you’d presume that about me. In reality
    I’m a very intelligent person (and modest as you can see…. 😛 ) and
    never blindly follow people. However, that said, there are several people
    that I can objectively say are geniuses in a niche area. Even if I had
    never seen Buffett’s fantastic ROI I could tell that his mentality and
    thought process is one that, given a long time frame, will result in
    excellent returns. Cheers!
