Seldin on Change: A Time to Buy, A Time to Sell

Spring/Summer 1983, Vol 8, No 1

Abstract: In yet another article in his series on change, Dr. Seldin explores the two factors which he feels are the most crucial in any investment decision: timing and location. After discussing these variables in a general context, he applies them to the real estate industry, specifically in the areas of rental housing, condominiums, and single-family homes. He says that real estate investment portfolios should be designed so that the investor is not put in a position where he/she must sell a property. Maintaining one’s options and the ability to choose the time to sell are emphasized.
