Thanks Dean and Matt great stuff as always! I'm pumped you guys are pretty much roomies this year!lol. Great tactics on handling inflation. The other thing thats inflating that I see is as a contractor is building materials. Everything seems to be going up in the remodeling world so be aware. Rehab numbers may be going up a little this year.



Thanks, enjoyed the lesson, but frankly think the inflation and interests rates have to rise significantly based on all of the printed money from uncle sam and borrowing our gov't has done. Would love to buy you lunch if I am wrong... I believe interest rates will be over 7% within next 5 years.

Thank You Dean and Matt

great topic,awesome explanation thanks Matt.

Thanks, Matt!

The inflation review was helpful, but I heard an even better tip. I'm delighted that most of my homes are free/clear, but I have one nagging mortgage. I'd talked with my bank about a modification, but the cost was quite high. When I called and said you indicated the cost should be in the $45 range, they hemmed and hawed, but reduced the cost. THANKS! Mary S.


Not Sure but I think Mat has just Invented two new terms , good for you , he did complicate the info a little but i understand what he was saying better than i did before i heard professional speackers explain the info like Mat Edgar

Cool Vid...except for one thing...

Matt said you can just pay 45 bucks for a modification.... isn't that considered the same as a re-fi and runs into the thousands; closing cost, fees etc..??

If anyone can clear this up that would be great.
Thanks DG Family!


Thanks Matt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love the fact that I can rewind and watch and listen to these videos over and over if it goes to fast for me or I don't understand. I also love that you take the time to help us out. Awesome video look forward to meeting you in person one day this year. My dad and I met Dean last month at The Buying Summit in Vegas he's as nice and friendly in person as he comes across on the videos and I assume you are too.

Matt, Thanks for explaining all the different types of FLATION. We have not done our first deal yet, but with the housing market inflating it does put a fear if you don't have the knowledge of what is going on and what to do next. Thanks for being on top of things.


Thanks Matt for your explanation on inflation. It was helpful in staying in the game through all markets...

Thanks Matt

Thanks Matt for taking time out of your busy day.
Dean thank you for getting us to move our butts. I had a feeling we were running out of time and this just let's us know we need to speed up our actions on RE cause the window is quickly closing.
All your hard work is appreciated on this end.
This is precisely the reason why I joined the DG Insider Elite community, because I needed an edge and I will get my first deal done soon. It's coming!!


Thanks Matt: That was an excellent blog, great education. You explained all the markets. Inflation and Interest rates. I have noticed building materials has went up. Carol in texas

Interest rate is controlled by the FED, not the Government.

Hi Matt,

FYI the Government does not regulate the interest rates, that is done by the FED that is not a Government entity, the FED is a private corporation that has the ability to expand and contract the currency supply creating inflation and deflation.
