Real Estate Investment Software – How it Really Helps Agents to Sell Income Property

Any real estate agent can sell income property without real estate investment software. After all, they are licensed to sell property and at the end of the day they only have to match up a willing buyer with a willing seller to make a deal; just the way they do with residential properties. Hey, it’s not rocket science.
In fact many agents do sell income property without ever investing in real estate investment software. That is, they take a listing on (say) a duplex, post it in the MLS or other appropriate website with little more than a price and location, and then simply wait until another agent comes along with a willing buyer for the property. Subsequently, of course, if the property does sell and close, the agent rejoices that he or she made a commission and goes off to celebrate; we’ve all been there. Fair enough.
But here’s …

Real Estate Investor – How to Buy Real Estate With Zero Interest Rate Loans!

This is an example of what I call sub equity, meaning the house is worth $130,000 and the person owes $70,000. In theory there’s $60,000 of equity in that property. Again, the seller wants $100,000. We’re going to keep the scenarios fairly consistent.
That transaction is again a way to do a no cash out of your pocket transaction. You would go to a private lender – or even possibly a traditional lender if you had it pre-approved – and you would borrow $70,000, $75,000 or $80,000. You would offer that to the seller.
Let’s say $75,000 to make the math easy. You would offer them $75,000. They would obviously take $70,000 of that to pay off their first mortgage and they would have $5,000 left over in cash. The other $25,000 would come in the form of a “subordinated seller note”. Again, the seller is essentially foregoing $25,000 and …

How to Rent Quickly by Pointing People to Your Property With Directional Signs

We do a lot of directional signs too. Directional signs are the little signs that are about 24″ across, 6″ high and they’re red and they have a white arrow. In that white arrow, you could write something. Not a lot, but you can write maybe the house number or the street name, whatever.
The key is to take those directional signs and work your way back to the major street sources. If your property is on a small little side street, go out to the intersection where the main road and side road come together and put some pointer signs on trees or whatever you’ve got to do.
Everybody that drives by sees the pointer signs, then they’ll drive into your side street and then see the signs on your house. If you don’t go out there and get pointer signs you simply will never get the traffic. That’s …
