Natalie thinks that the current real estate market in L.A. is softening. Right now, Natalie sees that a lot of investors still have liquid cash on the side for deals, with more investors holding assets rather than purchasing aggressively. Furthermore, Natalie sees the yield curve of the market becoming inverted, where the long term run is better than the short term potential of the market. There are still good opportunities in the market, but they are more difficult to come by.
Natalie’s best advice for graduating seniors and students, in general, is to go on as many informational interviews as you can. Expanding your network will help you get a job, and help you be successful in your job. She wishes she did more informational interviews while in school and recommends that you should do one to two a week as a student.
