The wealth creation boom has accelerated since Donald Trump became president in January.
In the first six months of his presidency, the president and his administration have made more than $1 trillion in assets available for sale.
But the real estate mogul has also put some of his own money into the sector.
As of last year, Trump had a total of $1.9 trillion in total assets available to be sold.
That’s up from just $900 million as of March.
“I’m a huge believer in the power of a little capital,” Trump told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” in December.
“The bigger your capital is, the more value you can create.”
While the Trump administration has made some moves to boost the sector, Trump’s actions are still a long way from fully harnessing the potential of the money.
The president has also been busy creating some jobs in the real-estate industry.
In February, Trump announced a hiring freeze for federal government employees.
The hiring freeze applies to all agencies and departments, but the White House did not specify the job cuts.
“We will make the most of every federal employee, and if they can’t do that, they will be offered other opportunities,” Trump said at the time.
“And, in the meantime, the federal government is working hard to fill those positions.”
As of March, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that federal government workers made $8.9 billion in wages and salaries last year.
While the industry is expected to grow, the Trump Administration is still waiting on the Federal Reserve to make a decision on interest rates.
“Right now, the Fed is holding off on any interest rate hikes until the end of March,” said Brad Johnson, senior economist at Capital Economics.
“That’s a very important thing to do, because interest rates could start going up in the coming months.”
Johnson noted that while interest rates have been held near zero for nearly a year, inflation has not slowed down.
“So, while the Fed may not raise rates any time soon, the uncertainty around the interest rate environment is a very real thing,” he said.
“It would be a big mistake for the Fed to go on this long-term cycle of raising interest rates.”
While Trump’s moves in the sector have been positive, Johnson said it’s important to keep in mind the impact the President has on the economy as a whole.
“He’s probably the most important factor in how the economy is doing right now, even more than a lot of the other presidents, and his actions on the economic front could have a very big effect on how well the economy performs,” he added.
