The Population of America is Migrating to Mega-Cities Connected By High Speed Rail

First trust deeds

The country's most sophisticated real estate investors are all buzzing about primary markets. A primary real estate market is a major metropolitan area that is enjoying significant job growth across a diversified spectrum of industries and a material net inflow of new residents. Examples of primary markets in the United States include Washington, D.C.; New York City, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and the San Francisco Bay Area. If you are going to invest in first trust deeds, you should try to invest in loans secured by real estate located in a primary market.

Why are primary markets so important? Demographers, social scientists, and futurists point out that most new job creation starts in densely populated areas, where workers from different industries meet, mingle, and share ideas. Since most of the new job creation in the United States is occurring in primary markets, the population of the country is destined to migrate there, creating even denser concentrations of people.

According to George Friedman, author of the best-selling book, The Next 100 Years: A Forecast for the 21st Century, high-speed rail will connect two nearby major cities to create mega-cities. The population will live in suburbs along the rail lines.

Bottom line: If you are going to invest in first mortgages, you should try to invest in loans secured by properties located in primary markets.
