How the 2020 US Election Will Impact the Multifamily Market

I’m not sure if you already knew this, but there is an election coming up. And it’s kind of a big deal. 

Whether you talk to historians, economists, political scientists, medical health professionals, climate change experts, or your local dogcatcher, the general consensus is that the stakes of the U.S. presidential election between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden have risen to unprecedented historical standards.  The outcome is likely to reverberate across all three branches of the U.S. government and—considering the central place the U.S. holds in the global financial system—the entire world.

Research has also identified a common trait among successful performers in any field, that they all value process over outcome.

Let’s apply this to investing for a second. Across the internet, you will see many claims by so-called experts and gurus in investing that highlight the outcome; you will make X amount in so many months or years. Rarely do they detail the process used to get to this outcome (hint: sometimes the claim isn’t really true and often times, it was a set of factors that aligned for them which might not align for you!)

Now of course the result or outcome does matter, as that is the...
