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 …

Why You Need to Have Financial Goals When Investing in Real Estate

Savvy investing in real estate requires setting goals. That is because the destination has to be known before the road to get there becomes clear. First, it will force the investor to know their current financial status. It will also shape decisions about how long to hold onto a property, and will keep the investor from making emotional decisions that leads them to an over-extension of debt. Without those goals, the investors will just wander around making purchases without objective facts to guide them.
