Your Other Check List When Buying a New House

Are you looking to buy a new house soon? The market is definitely a buyer’s market and you can get a lot of house for a lot less money compared to 1-2 years ago. However, it does not matter when you move – you still have to pay extra attention to the house and the surroundings. Most people look only at the house itself, maybe at the land that comes with it, but often that is it.
There are a lot of hidden values or traps included when buying a new house. It is very important to look around in the neighborhood to determine how great the new place is really. Why? Because what if you buy the house and have neighbors from hell?! What if the house next door is a rental and is occupied by a gang of 7 college kids that party all the time – especially …

The Importance of Using Free Reports to Get Sellers to Call You and Close Deals

Let’s talk about free reports. One of the things we’ve talked about is the fundamentals of marketing, including one-step marketing and two-step marketing, the fact that we really stressed that we’re going to be doing two-step marketing.
Create an Advertisement
You’re going to put out something – an ad, a postcard, whatever – and your objective is not to make the sale, but to get that person to raise their hand and to email you, call you, call your voice recorded message line, go to your website, whatever – but to raise their hand, show some interest, and then allow you to follow up with that person, capture their email, phone number, or something of that nature, and allow you to then obviously go back and to market to them over time.

Finding The Investment Property

Looking to do some investment in real estate properties? Need to find a discounted and undervalued property? Well, in this extremely competitive market, you need to quickly find the deals for the right properties before your competitors do. As an investor, you wouldn’t want to pay for any property at full price and then try to fix it and/or flip it to make a profit. That’s crazy!

Join a local investment club, particularly in real estate. This will serve as your network of investors. Networking is one way to find discounted and affordable fixer-uppers.

Real Estate Investing And Planning – Important Considerations

The world of real estate is an interesting one, and if you play your cards very well, you make a huge fortune from it. There are many ways you can choose to start an investment process in this. The easiest way to go about this is to buy a property, carry out the necessary renovations and then rent it out or put it up for sale.
If you decide to go for option one (renting out the property), you are guaranteed a steady flow of cash as long as your tenants pay up on time. If you go for the second option, you will also make a huge one off profit from your investment. So it is up to you to decide which option will be more profitable for you.
Real estate is a very capital intensive vocation but you are guaranteed a tidy profit at the end of every …

Real Estate – Buy Low and Sell High

There are always stories of smart investors who take advantage of the downturns in real estate cycles, downturns in the stock markets, or overall downturns in the economy. While some people ‘hunker down’ or even panic during the difficult periods, others look for opportunities, or specifically wait for the opportunity cycle to come, as it has now.
While one of the mantras of investing is to ‘Buy Low-Sell High’, this doesn’t always work out, does it? What we inevitably see is this: when something is ‘hot’ (like home rentals or condos recently), everyone rushes in to buy, but when it drops or freezes up, everyone panics and sells (or tries to sell). Often we ‘Buy High – Sell Low’, and that is a pity. Of course, when it comes to the realty world, an added culprit has been financing. Some investors over-financed, or when everything else in their portfolio and …
