Joe Biden: Real Estate Implications

Joe Biden, the 46th US President: Real Estate Implications

Joe Biden’s victory in the 59th US presidential election will likely represent a sharp departure from the current policies of the Trump administration, with an expected focus on climate/clean energy, immigration reform, broadening health care and rebuilding the US economy. This agenda is likely to be supported by higher taxes on corporations and higher income earners, and an unwinding of Trump-era deregulation. 

Read the full report, to take a look at what some of the real estate implications might be based on Biden’s stated policy positions prior to the election; policies directly specific to real estate are few.

Investment risks

  • The value of investments and any income will fluctuate (this may partly be the result of exchange rate fluctuations) and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Property and land can be difficult to sell, so investors may not be able to sell such investments when they want to. The value of property is generally a matter of an independent valuer’s opinion and may not be realised.
