Vanilla Ice

I Got Some HOT

Real Estate Tips ...

1/26/2013 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Buy low ... SELL HIGH ... at least that's the real estate advice Vanilla Ice is handing out on the streets of New York -- telling TMZ, now's a better time than ever to purchase a new home. 

'Nilla -- who currently hosts the reality show "The Vanilla Ice Project" on the DIY Network about renovating and flipping houses -- was out in NYC yesterday, where he told us, "The housing market right now is better than ever."

The rapper -- real name Rob Van Winkle -- said, "If you can buy a house cheaper than you can build it, it's great. Look at the stock market. It's all going up ... No better time to get in than right now." 

As for how to decorate your newly purchased investment property -- you'll have to watch the clip.

Really, his advice is to buy low, sell high? Honestly, my father was a realtor and I heard that from the day I was born for over 40 years. It's great advice but really, you would have to be stupid to buy high and sell low.

A little onion in the ointment for all the folks who lost their homes from the mortgage crisis and then lost their jobs during the financial meltdown...
At least he has a real career now..

The majority of houses that are selling are under-priced, and if you flip it, don't expect to make a profit. I have a house that was built 3 years ago, valued $80,000 higher than what I tried selling it for... I've already lowered the price 2x and it's still too high for what people in the area are willing to spend in this economy. Now is the time to buy... just don't expect to sell. This "housing market is improving" stuff is BS. the only reason it looks that ways is because people are selling their houses at huge losses to them.
