All states are not created equal

by MJ in my PJs

InvestorCompsOnline has provided our members with extensive training into non-disclosure states. As we continue to search the nation and educate ourselves we consistently update our members on the new data and research we find.

During this routine research, we have discovered some non-disclosure states that do not provide mortgage information. Typically, we can extrapolate the value of a property using the mortgage data. But, what do you do when it’s not available? Well, InvestorCompsOnline has taken the time to research with county appraisers and assessors to get insight into how to valuate property in these markets. True “appraiser secrets for the investor”.

For example, Montana is a complete non-disclosure state. All the details of a sale are private, including the mortgage data. However, InvestorCompsOnline has discovered that it is an “ad valorem” state; which means it is taxed based on the true market value of the property. The local appraisers must analyze actual HUD’s, recorded deeds, and talk to home buyers to determine closed sales price. This information is not readily available on the local MLS. So what does the local investor do?

InvestorCompsOnline has done some of this preliminary research for you. We have determined after research with the Montana state government assessors and local appraisers that the taxable values are within a variance of approximately ten percent. Now this isn’t hard and fast, but it is a great start for helping these local investors determine market value of their deals.

This is just an example of the hard work, knowledge, and training InvestorCompsOnline provides to our members to keep them up to date on opportunities in their markets and training them to build the most successful real estate business they can.

My Sunday Devotional to you

by Mark Jackson

Here is something to think about, communications experts tell us that the average person speaks enough to fill 20 word processed pages every day. This means our mouths crank out enough words to fill 2 books of 300 pages each month, 24 books each year, and 1,200 books in 50 years of speaking. Thanks to cell phones, VoIP, voicemail, and face-to-face conversations and now social media, words comprise a large part of our lives. So the kinds of words we use are important.

David’s mouth was filled with praise when he wrote Psalm 126. The Lord had done great things for him and his people. Even the nations around them noticed. Remembering God’s blessings, he said, “Our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing” (v.2).

I challenge you to think of the words you would use in verse 3 had you been writing this psalm? So often, our attitude may seem to be: “The Lord has done great things for me, and I…
…can’t recall any of them right now.”
…am wondering what He’ll do for me next.”
…need much more.”

Or could you finish it by saying, “And I am praising and thanking Him for His goodness”? As you recall God’s blessings today, express your words of praise to Him. I admit often I do not keep the Father first at mind or in my words. Let us all use this message to keep what the Lord is doing through and for us in the words we us.

See you next Sunday,

Foreclosure Investing

Extreme wealth can be captured simply by investing in real estate and foreclosures. Buying a property in foreclosure can be a lengthy process, and to make money investing in foreclosed homes, you have to have a thorough knowledge of the process. Getting into foreclosure investing uninformed can be a very risky proposition.

InvestorCompsOnline.com is the place to go for the training necessary to be an informed real estate investor.

As you begin to understand the basic process that foreclosed properties go through, you must take a look at your community and state laws that oversee the buying and selling of foreclosed houses. Depending on your investment plans, these laws may place barriers to your investment goals.

If, as part of your foreclosure investing goals, you want to fix and flip a property, the next step is basically to uncover a house that is in foreclosure. Your regional county posts a list every day, and if you don’t want to leave your home, go down to the recorder’s office, wait in line, and hopefully have accurate information: REO Goldminer.com is an online service that can give you a list of foreclosed properties and help you valuate them with a click of a button.

Financing is a big part of buying real estate and this is especially true when buying foreclosed homes. As a result, you have to have your financing in place before you buy the house.

InvestorCompsOnline.com
offers training in several avenues of alternate financing.

Finally, when you have your financing in place, and have found a home that will meet your investment goals, the next step is simply to valuate the property to make sure it is a “deal”. InvestorCompsOnline.com not only provides the comps, sales, and transfer history to valuate the property but we also provide you with the training necessary to give you a leg up on your competition. Be sure to access the knowledgebase, webinars, and teleclasses available online to be kept abreast and trained on the “hot topics” in the real estate industry today.

After you have closed on the residence and it is yours to keep and administer or rehab and fix, it is just a matter of getting to work. In summary, purchasing a foreclosed home is an easy process; you just need to know what you are doing.

For many investors, finding a foreclosed property can be a challenge. Visit REO GoldMiner.com to find those deals and then visit us at InvestorCompsOnline.com to valuate the deals and learn some skills that will make your real estate business stand heads and shoulders above the rest.

My Sunday Devotional to you.

I’m spending the weekend with my youngest daughter. We are visiting some colleges in NC preparing well in advance as she is presently a high school sophomore. As a parent going from campus to campus seeing the vast number of students, buildings and activities I naturally begin to ponder how my child will fair. My daughter gave me a glimpse yesterday.

During our many walks between buildings my daughter shared with me a particular lesson from Life Skills class she is taking. Several weeks ago in class they were to review the movie “Remember the Titans” and draw certain personal characteristics from the varying roles. These characteristics ranged from integrity, self-disciple, caring, respect, responsibility, perseverance and courage. She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

Now my daughter is experiencing growing pains like any other 15 year old. The idea of riding across the state of NC on a Saturday to see schools she other wise might not attend is not how she would chose to spend our time. However, knowing or unknowingly she was demonstrating the exact characteristics and actions for which she had just described. We had a very pleasant day even though is was long and she did nearly all the driving for dear ‘ole dad.

We don’t know when our actions might become an example to others. But if we live each day to honor Jesus, our behavior will model His righteousness, no matter who is watching.

Idealism and enthusiasm are often best expressed by the young. But uprightness and honor should be goals for Christians of every age. Paul tells of the glory of our youth: “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12).

My daughter has a desire to change the way people behave towards one another, by being an example herself. We all can learn from people every day, sometimes especially from our youth.

See you next Sunday,
MJ

Here is something to think about, communications experts tell us that the average person speaks enough to fill 20 word processed pages every day. This means our mouths crank out enough words to fill 2 books of 300 pages each month, 24 books each year, and 1,200 books in 50 years of speaking.

I’m spending the weekend with my youngest daughter. We are visiting some colleges in NC preparing well in advance as she is presently a high school sophomore. As a parent going from campus to campus seeing the vast number of students, buildings and activities I naturally begin to ponder how my child will fair. My daughter gave me a glimpse yesterday.

During our many walks between buildings my daughter shared with me a particular lesson from Life Skills class she is taking. Several weeks ago in class they were to review the movie “Remember the Titans” and draw certain personal characteristics from the varying roles. These characteristics ranged from integrity, self-disciple, caring, respect, responsibility, perseverance and courage. She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

Now my daughter is experiencing growing pains like any other 15 year old. The idea of riding across the state of NC on a Saturday to see schools she other wise might not attend is not how she would chose to spend our time. However, knowing or unknowingly she was demonstrating the exact characteristics and actions for which she had just described. We had a very pleasant day even though is was long and she did nearly all the driving for dear ‘ole dad.

We don’t know when our actions might become an example to others. But if we live each day to honor Jesus, our behavior will model His righteousness, no matter who is watching.

Idealism and enthusiasm are often best expressed by the young. But uprightness and honor should be goals for Christians of every age. Paul tells of the glory of our youth: “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12).

My daughter has a desire to change the way people behave towards one another, by being an example herself. We all can learn from people every day, sometimes especially from our youth.

See you next Sunday,

All states are not created equal

by MJ in my PJs

InvestorCompsOnline has provided our members with extensive training into non-disclosure states. As we continue to search the nation and educate ourselves we consistently update our members on the new data and research we find.

During this routine research, we have discovered some non-disclosure states that do not provide mortgage information. Typically, we can extrapolate the value of a property using the mortgage data. But, what do you do when it’s not available? Well, InvestorCompsOnline has taken the time to research with county appraisers and assessors to get insight into how to valuate property in these markets. True “appraiser secrets for the investor”.

For example, Montana is a complete non-disclosure state. All the details of a sale are private, including the mortgage data. However, InvestorCompsOnline has discovered that it is an “ad valorem” state; which means it is taxed based on the true market value of the property. The local appraisers must analyze actual HUD’s, recorded deeds, and talk to home buyers to determine closed sales price. This information is not readily available on the local MLS. So what does the local investor do?

InvestorCompsOnline has done some of this preliminary research for you. We have determined after research with the Montana state government assessors and local appraisers that the taxable values are within a variance of approximately ten percent. Now this isn’t hard and fast, but it is a great start for helping these local investors determine market value of their deals.

This is just an example of the hard work, knowledge, and training InvestorCompsOnline provides to our members to keep them up to date on opportunities in their markets and training them to build the most successful real estate business they can.

My Sunday Devotional to you

by Mark Jackson

Here is something to think about, communications experts tell us that the average person speaks enough to fill 20 word processed pages every day. This means our mouths crank out enough words to fill 2 books of 300 pages each month, 24 books each year, and 1,200 books in 50 years of speaking. Thanks to cell phones, VoIP, voicemail, and face-to-face conversations and now social media, words comprise a large part of our lives. So the kinds of words we use are important.

David’s mouth was filled with praise when he wrote Psalm 126. The Lord had done great things for him and his people. Even the nations around them noticed. Remembering God’s blessings, he said, “Our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing” (v.2).

I challenge you to think of the words you would use in verse 3 had you been writing this psalm? So often, our attitude may seem to be: “The Lord has done great things for me, and I…
…can’t recall any of them right now.”
…am wondering what He’ll do for me next.”
…need much more.”

Or could you finish it by saying, “And I am praising and thanking Him for His goodness”? As you recall God’s blessings today, express your words of praise to Him. I admit often I do not keep the Father first at mind or in my words. Let us all use this message to keep what the Lord is doing through and for us in the words we us.

See you next Sunday,
MJ

PS Let no thought linger in your mind that you would be ashamed to let out of your mouth.

Foreclosure Investing

Extreme wealth can be captured simply by investing in real estate and foreclosures. Buying a property in foreclosure can be a lengthy process, and to make money investing in foreclosed homes, you have to have a thorough knowledge of the process. Getting into foreclosure investing uninformed can be a very risky proposition.

InvestorCompsOnline.com is the place to go for the training necessary to be an informed real estate investor.

As you begin to understand the basic process that foreclosed properties go through, you must take a look at your community and state laws that oversee the buying and selling of foreclosed houses. Depending on your investment plans, these laws may place barriers to your investment goals.

If, as part of your foreclosure investing goals, you want to fix and flip a property, the next step is basically to uncover a house that is in foreclosure. Your regional county posts a list every day, and if you don’t want to leave your home, go down to the recorder’s office, wait in line, and hopefully have accurate information: REO Goldminer.com is an online service that can give you a list of foreclosed properties and help you valuate them with a click of a button.

Financing is a big part of buying real estate and this is especially true when buying foreclosed homes. As a result, you have to have your financing in place before you buy the house.

InvestorCompsOnline.com
offers training in several avenues of alternate financing.

Finally, when you have your financing in place, and have found a home that will meet your investment goals, the next step is simply to valuate the property to make sure it is a “deal”.

This means our mouths crank out enough words to fill 2 books of 300 pages each month, 24 books each year, and 1,200 books in 50 years of speaking. Thanks to cell phones, VoIP, voicemail, and face-to-face conversations and now social media, words comprise a large part of our lives. So the kinds of words we use are important.

David’s mouth was filled with praise when he wrote Psalm 126. The Lord had done great things for him and his people. Even the nations around them noticed. Remembering God’s blessings, he said, “Our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing” (v.2).

I challenge you to think of the words you would use in verse 3 had you been writing this psalm? So often, our attitude may seem to be: “The Lord has done great things for me, and I…
…can’t recall any of them right now.”
…am wondering what He’ll do for me next.”
…need much more.”

Or could you finish it by saying, “And I am praising and thanking Him for His goodness”? As you recall God’s blessings today, express your words of praise to Him. I admit often I do not keep the Father first at mind or in my words. Let us all use this message to keep what the Lord is doing through and for us in the words we us.

See you next Sunday,

Foreclosure Investing

Extreme wealth can be captured simply by investing in real estate and foreclosures. Buying a property in foreclosure can be a lengthy process, and to make money investing in foreclosed homes, you have to have a thorough knowledge of the process. Getting into foreclosure investing uninformed can be a very risky proposition.

InvestorCompsOnline.com is the place to go for the training necessary to be an informed real estate investor.

As you begin to understand the basic process that foreclosed properties go through, you must take a look at your community and state laws that oversee the buying and selling of foreclosed houses. Depending on your investment plans, these laws may place barriers to your investment goals.

If, as part of your foreclosure investing goals, you want to fix and flip a property, the next step is basically to uncover a house that is in foreclosure. Your regional county posts a list every day, and if you don’t want to leave your home, go down to the recorder’s office, wait in line, and hopefully have accurate information: REO Goldminer.com is an online service that can give you a list of foreclosed properties and help you valuate them with a click of a button.

Financing is a big part of buying real estate and this is especially true when buying foreclosed homes. As a result, you have to have your financing in place before you buy the house.

InvestorCompsOnline.com
offers training in several avenues of alternate financing.

Finally, when you have your financing in place, and have found a home that will meet your investment goals, the next step is simply to valuate the property to make sure it is a “deal”. InvestorCompsOnline.com not only provides the comps, sales, and transfer history to valuate the property but we also provide you with the training necessary to give you a leg up on your competition. Be sure to access the knowledgebase, webinars, and teleclasses available online to be kept abreast and trained on the “hot topics” in the real estate industry today.

After you have closed on the residence and it is yours to keep and administer or rehab and fix, it is just a matter of getting to work. In summary, purchasing a foreclosed home is an easy process; you just need to know what you are doing.

For many investors, finding a foreclosed property can be a challenge. Visit REO GoldMiner.com to find those deals and then visit us at InvestorCompsOnline.com to valuate the deals and learn some skills that will make your real estate business stand heads and shoulders above the rest.

I’m spending the weekend with my youngest daughter. We are visiting some colleges in NC preparing well in advance as she is presently a high school sophomore. As a parent going from campus to campus seeing the vast number of students, buildings and activities I naturally begin to ponder how my child will fair. My daughter gave me a glimpse yesterday.

During our many walks between buildings my daughter shared with me a particular lesson from Life Skills class she is taking. Several weeks ago in class they were to review the movie “Remember the Titans” and draw certain personal characteristics from the varying roles. These characteristics ranged from integrity, self-disciple, caring, respect, responsibility, perseverance and courage. She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

Now my daughter is experiencing growing pains like any other 15 year old. The idea of riding across the state of NC on a Saturday to see schools she other wise might not attend is not how she would chose to spend our time. However, knowing or unknowingly she was demonstrating the exact characteristics and actions for which she had just described. We had a very pleasant day even though is was long and she did nearly all the driving for dear ‘ole dad.

We don’t know when our actions might become an example to others. But if we live each day to honor Jesus, our behavior will model His righteousness, no matter who is watching.

Idealism and enthusiasm are often best expressed by the young. But uprightness and honor should be goals for Christians of every age. Paul tells of the glory of our youth: “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12).

My daughter has a desire to change the way people behave towards one another, by being an example herself. We all can learn from people every day, sometimes especially from our youth.

See you next Sunday,

All states are not created equal

by MJ in my PJs

InvestorCompsOnline has provided our members with extensive training into non-disclosure states. As we continue to search the nation and educate ourselves we consistently update our members on the new data and research we find.

During this routine research, we have discovered some non-disclosure states that do not provide mortgage information. Typically, we can extrapolate the value of a property using the mortgage data. But, what do you do when it’s not available? Well, InvestorCompsOnline has taken the time to research with county appraisers and assessors to get insight into how to valuate property in these markets. True “appraiser secrets for the investor”.

For example, Montana is a complete non-disclosure state. All the details of a sale are private, including the mortgage data. However, InvestorCompsOnline has discovered that it is an “ad valorem” state; which means it is taxed based on the true market value of the property. The local appraisers must analyze actual HUD’s, recorded deeds, and talk to home buyers to determine closed sales price. This information is not readily available on the local MLS. So what does the local investor do?

InvestorCompsOnline has done some of this preliminary research for you. We have determined after research with the Montana state government assessors and local appraisers that the taxable values are within a variance of approximately ten percent. Now this isn’t hard and fast, but it is a great start for helping these local investors determine market value of their deals.

This is just an example of the hard work, knowledge, and training InvestorCompsOnline provides to our members to keep them up to date on opportunities in their markets and training them to build the most successful real estate business they can.

She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

For example, Montana is a complete non-disclosure state. All the details of a sale are private, including the mortgage data. However, InvestorCompsOnline has discovered that it is an “ad valorem” state; which means it is taxed based on the true market value of the property. The local appraisers must analyze actual HUD’s, recorded deeds, and talk to home buyers to determine closed sales price. This information is not readily available on the local MLS. So what does the local investor do?

InvestorCompsOnline has done some of this preliminary research for you. We have determined after research with the Montana state government assessors and local appraisers that the taxable values are within a variance of approximately ten percent. Now this isn’t hard and fast, but it is a great start for helping these local investors determine market value of their deals.

This is just an example of the hard work, knowledge, and training InvestorCompsOnline provides to our members to keep them up to date on opportunities in their markets and training them to build the most successful real estate business they can.

My Sunday Devotional to you

by Mark Jackson

Here is something to think about, communications experts tell us that the average person speaks enough to fill 20 word processed pages every day. This means our mouths crank out enough words to fill 2 books of 300 pages each month, 24 books each year, and 1,200 books in 50 years of speaking. Thanks to cell phones, VoIP, voicemail, and face-to-face conversations and now social media, words comprise a large part of our lives. So the kinds of words we use are important.

David’s mouth was filled with praise when he wrote Psalm 126. The Lord had done great things for him and his people. Even the nations around them noticed. Remembering God’s blessings, he said, “Our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing” (v.2).

I challenge you to think of the words you would use in verse 3 had you been writing this psalm? So often, our attitude may seem to be: “The Lord has done great things for me, and I…
…can’t recall any of them right now.”
…am wondering what He’ll do for me next.”
…need much more.”

Or could you finish it by saying, “And I am praising and thanking Him for His goodness”? As you recall God’s blessings today, express your words of praise to Him. I admit often I do not keep the Father first at mind or in my words. Let us all use this message to keep what the Lord is doing through and for us in the words we us.

See you next Sunday,

Foreclosure Investing

Extreme wealth can be captured simply by investing in real estate and foreclosures. Buying a property in foreclosure can be a lengthy process, and to make money investing in foreclosed homes, you have to have a thorough knowledge of the process. Getting into foreclosure investing uninformed can be a very risky proposition.

InvestorCompsOnline.com is the place to go for the training necessary to be an informed real estate investor.

As you begin to understand the basic process that foreclosed properties go through, you must take a look at your community and state laws that oversee the buying and selling of foreclosed houses. Depending on your investment plans, these laws may place barriers to your investment goals.

If, as part of your foreclosure investing goals, you want to fix and flip a property, the next step is basically to uncover a house that is in foreclosure. Your regional county posts a list every day, and if you don’t want to leave your home, go down to the recorder’s office, wait in line, and hopefully have accurate information: REO Goldminer.com is an online service that can give you a list of foreclosed properties and help you valuate them with a click of a button.

Financing is a big part of buying real estate and this is especially true when buying foreclosed homes. As a result, you have to have your financing in place before you buy the house.

InvestorCompsOnline.com
offers training in several avenues of alternate financing.

Finally, when you have your financing in place, and have found a home that will meet your investment goals, the next step is simply to valuate the property to make sure it is a “deal”. InvestorCompsOnline.com not only provides the comps, sales, and transfer history to valuate the property but we also provide you with the training necessary to give you a leg up on your competition. Be sure to access the knowledgebase, webinars, and teleclasses available online to be kept abreast and trained on the “hot topics” in the real estate industry today.

After you have closed on the residence and it is yours to keep and administer or rehab and fix, it is just a matter of getting to work. In summary, purchasing a foreclosed home is an easy process; you just need to know what you are doing.

For many investors, finding a foreclosed property can be a challenge. Visit REO GoldMiner.com to find those deals and then visit us at InvestorCompsOnline.com to valuate the deals and learn some skills that will make your real estate business stand heads and shoulders above the rest.

My Sunday Devotional to you.

I’m spending the weekend with my youngest daughter. We are visiting some colleges in NC preparing well in advance as she is presently a high school sophomore. As a parent going from campus to campus seeing the vast number of students, buildings and activities I naturally begin to ponder how my child will fair. My daughter gave me a glimpse yesterday.

During our many walks between buildings my daughter shared with me a particular lesson from Life Skills class she is taking. Several weeks ago in class they were to review the movie “Remember the Titans” and draw certain personal characteristics from the varying roles. These characteristics ranged from integrity, self-disciple, caring, respect, responsibility, perseverance and courage. She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

Now my daughter is experiencing growing pains like any other 15 year old. The idea of riding across the state of NC on a Saturday to see schools she other wise might not attend is not how she would chose to spend our time. However, knowing or unknowingly she was demonstrating the exact characteristics and actions for which she had just described. We had a very pleasant day even though is was long and she did nearly all the driving for dear ‘ole dad.

We don’t know when our actions might become an example to others. But if we live each day to honor Jesus, our behavior will model His righteousness, no matter who is watching.

Idealism and enthusiasm are often best expressed by the young. But uprightness and honor should be goals for Christians of every age. Paul tells of the glory of our youth: “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12).

My daughter has a desire to change the way people behave towards one another, by being an example herself. We all can learn from people every day, sometimes especially from our youth.

See you next Sunday,

My Sunday Devotional to you.

I’m spending the weekend with my youngest daughter. We are visiting some colleges in NC preparing well in advance as she is presently a high school sophomore. As a parent going from campus to campus seeing the vast number of students, buildings and activities I naturally begin to ponder how my child will fair. My daughter gave me a glimpse yesterday.

During our many walks between buildings my daughter shared with me a particular lesson from Life Skills class she is taking. Several weeks ago in class they were to review the movie “Remember the Titans” and draw certain personal characteristics from the varying roles. These characteristics ranged from integrity, self-disciple, caring, respect, responsibility, perseverance and courage. She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

Now my daughter is experiencing growing pains like any other 15 year old. The idea of riding across the state of NC on a Saturday to see schools she other wise might not attend is not how she would chose to spend our time. However, knowing or unknowingly she was demonstrating the exact characteristics and actions for which she had just described. We had a very pleasant day even though is was long and she did nearly all the driving for dear ‘ole dad.

We don’t know when our actions might become an example to others. But if we live each day to honor Jesus, our behavior will model His righteousness, no matter who is watching.

Idealism and enthusiasm are often best expressed by the young. But uprightness and honor should be goals for Christians of every age. Paul tells of the glory of our youth: “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12).

My daughter has a desire to change the way people behave towards one another, by being an example herself. We all can learn from people every day, sometimes especially from our youth.

See you next Sunday,

All states are not created equal

by MJ in my PJs

InvestorCompsOnline has provided our members with extensive training into non-disclosure states. As we continue to search the nation and educate ourselves we consistently update our members on the new data and research we find.

During this routine research, we have discovered some non-disclosure states that do not provide mortgage information. Typically, we can extrapolate the value of a property using the mortgage data. But, what do you do when it’s not available? Well, InvestorCompsOnline has taken the time to research with county appraisers and assessors to get insight into how to valuate property in these markets. True “appraiser secrets for the investor”.

For example, Montana is a complete non-disclosure state. All the details of a sale are private, including the mortgage data. However, InvestorCompsOnline has discovered that it is an “ad valorem” state; which means it is taxed based on the true market value of the property. The local appraisers must analyze actual HUD’s, recorded deeds, and talk to home buyers to determine closed sales price. This information is not readily available on the local MLS. So what does the local investor do?

InvestorCompsOnline has done some of this preliminary research for you. We have determined after research with the Montana state government assessors and local appraisers that the taxable values are within a variance of approximately ten percent. Now this isn’t hard and fast, but it is a great start for helping these local investors determine market value of their deals.

This is just an example of the hard work, knowledge, and training InvestorCompsOnline provides to our members to keep them up to date on opportunities in their markets and training them to build the most successful real estate business they can.

My Sunday Devotional to you

by Mark Jackson

Here is something to think about, communications experts tell us that the average person speaks enough to fill 20 word processed pages every day. This means our mouths crank out enough words to fill 2 books of 300 pages each month, 24 books each year, and 1,200 books in 50 years of speaking. Thanks to cell phones, VoIP, voicemail, and face-to-face conversations and now social media, words comprise a large part of our lives. So the kinds of words we use are important.

David’s mouth was filled with praise when he wrote Psalm 126. The Lord had done great things for him and his people. Even the nations around them noticed. Remembering God’s blessings, he said, “Our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing” (v.2).

I challenge you to think of the words you would use in verse 3 had you been writing this psalm? So often, our attitude may seem to be: “The Lord has done great things for me, and I…
…can’t recall any of them right now.”
…am wondering what He’ll do for me next.”
…need much more.”

Or could you finish it by saying, “And I am praising and thanking Him for His goodness”? As you recall God’s blessings today, express your words of praise to Him. I admit often I do not keep the Father first at mind or in my words. Let us all use this message to keep what the Lord is doing through and for us in the words we us.

See you next Sunday,
MJ

PS Let no thought linger in your mind that you would be ashamed to let out of your mouth.

Foreclosure Investing

Extreme wealth can be captured simply by investing in real estate and foreclosures. Buying a property in foreclosure can be a lengthy process, and to make money investing in foreclosed homes, you have to have a thorough knowledge of the process. Getting into foreclosure investing uninformed can be a very risky proposition.

InvestorCompsOnline.com is the place to go for the training necessary to be an informed real estate investor.

As you begin to understand the basic process that foreclosed properties go through, you must take a look at your community and state laws that oversee the buying and selling of foreclosed houses. Depending on your investment plans, these laws may place barriers to your investment goals.

If, as part of your foreclosure investing goals, you want to fix and flip a property, the next step is basically to uncover a house that is in foreclosure. Your regional county posts a list every day, and if you don’t want to leave your home, go down to the recorder’s office, wait in line, and hopefully have accurate information: REO Goldminer.com is an online service that can give you a list of foreclosed properties and help you valuate them with a click of a button.

Financing is a big part of buying real estate and this is especially true when buying foreclosed homes. As a result, you have to have your financing in place before you buy the house.

InvestorCompsOnline.com
offers training in several avenues of alternate financing.

Finally, when you have your financing in place, and have found a home that will meet your investment goals, the next step is simply to valuate the property to make sure it is a “deal”. InvestorCompsOnline.com not only provides the comps, sales, and transfer history to valuate the property but we also provide you with the training necessary to give you a leg up on your competition. Be sure to access the knowledgebase, webinars, and teleclasses available online to be kept abreast and trained on the “hot topics” in the real estate industry today.

After you have closed on the residence and it is yours to keep and administer or rehab and fix, it is just a matter of getting to work. In summary, purchasing a foreclosed home is an easy process; you just need to know what you are doing.

For many investors, finding a foreclosed property can be a challenge. Visit REO GoldMiner.com to find those deals and then visit us at InvestorCompsOnline.com to valuate the deals and learn some skills that will make your real estate business stand heads and shoulders above the rest.

David’s mouth was filled with praise when he wrote Psalm 126. The Lord had done great things for him and his people. Even the nations around them noticed. Remembering God’s blessings, he said, “Our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing” (v.2).

I challenge you to think of the words you would use in verse 3 had you been writing this psalm? So often, our attitude may seem to be: “The Lord has done great things for me, and I…
…can’t recall any of them right now.”
…am wondering what He’ll do for me next.”
…need much more.”

Or could you finish it by saying, “And I am praising and thanking Him for His goodness”? As you recall God’s blessings today, express your words of praise to Him. I admit often I do not keep the Father first at mind or in my words. Let us all use this message to keep what the Lord is doing through and for us in the words we us.

See you next Sunday,

Foreclosure Investing

Extreme wealth can be captured simply by investing in real estate and foreclosures. Buying a property in foreclosure can be a lengthy process, and to make money investing in foreclosed homes, you have to have a thorough knowledge of the process. Getting into foreclosure investing uninformed can be a very risky proposition.

InvestorCompsOnline.com is the place to go for the training necessary to be an informed real estate investor.

As you begin to understand the basic process that foreclosed properties go through, you must take a look at your community and state laws that oversee the buying and selling of foreclosed houses. Depending on your investment plans, these laws may place barriers to your investment goals.

If, as part of your foreclosure investing goals, you want to fix and flip a property, the next step is basically to uncover a house that is in foreclosure. Your regional county posts a list every day, and if you don’t want to leave your home, go down to the recorder’s office, wait in line, and hopefully have accurate information: REO Goldminer.com is an online service that can give you a list of foreclosed properties and help you valuate them with a click of a button.

Financing is a big part of buying real estate and this is especially true when buying foreclosed homes. As a result, you have to have your financing in place before you buy the house.

InvestorCompsOnline.com
offers training in several avenues of alternate financing.

Finally, when you have your financing in place, and have found a home that will meet your investment goals, the next step is simply to valuate the property to make sure it is a “deal”. InvestorCompsOnline.com not only provides the comps, sales, and transfer history to valuate the property but we also provide you with the training necessary to give you a leg up on your competition. Be sure to access the knowledgebase, webinars, and teleclasses available online to be kept abreast and trained on the “hot topics” in the real estate industry today.

After you have closed on the residence and it is yours to keep and administer or rehab and fix, it is just a matter of getting to work. In summary, purchasing a foreclosed home is an easy process; you just need to know what you are doing.

For many investors, finding a foreclosed property can be a challenge. Visit REO GoldMiner.com to find those deals and then visit us at InvestorCompsOnline.com to valuate the deals and learn some skills that will make your real estate business stand heads and shoulders above the rest.

I’m spending the weekend with my youngest daughter. We are visiting some colleges in NC preparing well in advance as she is presently a high school sophomore. As a parent going from campus to campus seeing the vast number of students, buildings and activities I naturally begin to ponder how my child will fair. My daughter gave me a glimpse yesterday.

During our many walks between buildings my daughter shared with me a particular lesson from Life Skills class she is taking. Several weeks ago in class they were to review the movie “Remember the Titans” and draw certain personal characteristics from the varying roles. These characteristics ranged from integrity, self-disciple, caring, respect, responsibility, perseverance and courage. She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

Now my daughter is experiencing growing pains like any other 15 year old. The idea of riding across the state of NC on a Saturday to see schools she other wise might not attend is not how she would chose to spend our time. However, knowing or unknowingly she was demonstrating the exact characteristics and actions for which she had just described. We had a very pleasant day even though is was long and she did nearly all the driving for dear ‘ole dad.

We don’t know when our actions might become an example to others. But if we live each day to honor Jesus, our behavior will model His righteousness, no matter who is watching.

Idealism and enthusiasm are often best expressed by the young. But uprightness and honor should be goals for Christians of every age. Paul tells of the glory of our youth: “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12).

My daughter has a desire to change the way people behave towards one another, by being an example herself. We all can learn from people every day, sometimes especially from our youth.

See you next Sunday,

All states are not created equal

by MJ in my PJs

InvestorCompsOnline has provided our members with extensive training into non-disclosure states. As we continue to search the nation and educate ourselves we consistently update our members on the new data and research we find.

During this routine research, we have discovered some non-disclosure states that do not provide mortgage information. Typically, we can extrapolate the value of a property using the mortgage data. But, what do you do when it’s not available? Well, InvestorCompsOnline has taken the time to research with county appraisers and assessors to get insight into how to valuate property in these markets. True “appraiser secrets for the investor”.

For example, Montana is a complete non-disclosure state. All the details of a sale are private, including the mortgage data. However, InvestorCompsOnline has discovered that it is an “ad valorem” state; which means it is taxed based on the true market value of the property. The local appraisers must analyze actual HUD’s, recorded deeds, and talk to home buyers to determine closed sales price. This information is not readily available on the local MLS. So what does the local investor do?

InvestorCompsOnline has done some of this preliminary research for you. We have determined after research with the Montana state government assessors and local appraisers that the taxable values are within a variance of approximately ten percent. Now this isn’t hard and fast, but it is a great start for helping these local investors determine market value of their deals.

This is just an example of the hard work, knowledge, and training InvestorCompsOnline provides to our members to keep them up to date on opportunities in their markets and training them to build the most successful real estate business they can.

Here is something to think about, communications experts tell us that the average person speaks enough to fill 20 word processed pages every day. This means our mouths crank out enough words to fill 2 books of 300 pages each month, 24 books each year, and 1,200 books in 50 years of speaking. Thanks to cell phones, VoIP, voicemail, and face-to-face conversations and now social media, words comprise a large part of our lives. So the kinds of words we use are important.

She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

However, InvestorCompsOnline has discovered that it is an “ad valorem” state; which means it is taxed based on the true market value of the property. The local appraisers must analyze actual HUD’s, recorded deeds, and talk to home buyers to determine closed sales price. This information is not readily available on the local MLS. So what does the local investor do?

InvestorCompsOnline has done some of this preliminary research for you. We have determined after research with the Montana state government assessors and local appraisers that the taxable values are within a variance of approximately ten percent. Now this isn’t hard and fast, but it is a great start for helping these local investors determine market value of their deals.

This is just an example of the hard work, knowledge, and training InvestorCompsOnline provides to our members to keep them up to date on opportunities in their markets and training them to build the most successful real estate business they can.

My Sunday Devotional to you

by Mark Jackson

Here is something to think about, communications experts tell us that the average person speaks enough to fill 20 word processed pages every day. This means our mouths crank out enough words to fill 2 books of 300 pages each month, 24 books each year, and 1,200 books in 50 years of speaking. Thanks to cell phones, VoIP, voicemail, and face-to-face conversations and now social media, words comprise a large part of our lives. So the kinds of words we use are important.

David’s mouth was filled with praise when he wrote Psalm 126. The Lord had done great things for him and his people. Even the nations around them noticed. Remembering God’s blessings, he said, “Our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing” (v.2).

I challenge you to think of the words you would use in verse 3 had you been writing this psalm? So often, our attitude may seem to be: “The Lord has done great things for me, and I…
…can’t recall any of them right now.”
…am wondering what He’ll do for me next.”
…need much more.”

Or could you finish it by saying, “And I am praising and thanking Him for His goodness”? As you recall God’s blessings today, express your words of praise to Him. I admit often I do not keep the Father first at mind or in my words. Let us all use this message to keep what the Lord is doing through and for us in the words we us.

See you next Sunday,

Foreclosure Investing

Extreme wealth can be captured simply by investing in real estate and foreclosures. Buying a property in foreclosure can be a lengthy process, and to make money investing in foreclosed homes, you have to have a thorough knowledge of the process. Getting into foreclosure investing uninformed can be a very risky proposition.

InvestorCompsOnline.com is the place to go for the training necessary to be an informed real estate investor.

As you begin to understand the basic process that foreclosed properties go through, you must take a look at your community and state laws that oversee the buying and selling of foreclosed houses. Depending on your investment plans, these laws may place barriers to your investment goals.

If, as part of your foreclosure investing goals, you want to fix and flip a property, the next step is basically to uncover a house that is in foreclosure. Your regional county posts a list every day, and if you don’t want to leave your home, go down to the recorder’s office, wait in line, and hopefully have accurate information: REO Goldminer.com is an online service that can give you a list of foreclosed properties and help you valuate them with a click of a button.

Financing is a big part of buying real estate and this is especially true when buying foreclosed homes. As a result, you have to have your financing in place before you buy the house.

InvestorCompsOnline.com
offers training in several avenues of alternate financing.

Finally, when you have your financing in place, and have found a home that will meet your investment goals, the next step is simply to valuate the property to make sure it is a “deal”. InvestorCompsOnline.com not only provides the comps, sales, and transfer history to valuate the property but we also provide you with the training necessary to give you a leg up on your competition. Be sure to access the knowledgebase, webinars, and teleclasses available online to be kept abreast and trained on the “hot topics” in the real estate industry today.

After you have closed on the residence and it is yours to keep and administer or rehab and fix, it is just a matter of getting to work. In summary, purchasing a foreclosed home is an easy process; you just need to know what you are doing.

For many investors, finding a foreclosed property can be a challenge. Visit REO GoldMiner.com to find those deals and then visit us at InvestorCompsOnline.com to valuate the deals and learn some skills that will make your real estate business stand heads and shoulders above the rest.

My Sunday Devotional to you.

I’m spending the weekend with my youngest daughter. We are visiting some colleges in NC preparing well in advance as she is presently a high school sophomore. As a parent going from campus to campus seeing the vast number of students, buildings and activities I naturally begin to ponder how my child will fair. My daughter gave me a glimpse yesterday.

During our many walks between buildings my daughter shared with me a particular lesson from Life Skills class she is taking. Several weeks ago in class they were to review the movie “Remember the Titans” and draw certain personal characteristics from the varying roles. These characteristics ranged from integrity, self-disciple, caring, respect, responsibility, perseverance and courage. She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

Now my daughter is experiencing growing pains like any other 15 year old. The idea of riding across the state of NC on a Saturday to see schools she other wise might not attend is not how she would chose to spend our time. However, knowing or unknowingly she was demonstrating the exact characteristics and actions for which she had just described. We had a very pleasant day even though is was long and she did nearly all the driving for dear ‘ole dad.

We don’t know when our actions might become an example to others. But if we live each day to honor Jesus, our behavior will model His righteousness, no matter who is watching.

Idealism and enthusiasm are often best expressed by the young. But uprightness and honor should be goals for Christians of every age. Paul tells of the glory of our youth: “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12).

My daughter has a desire to change the way people behave towards one another, by being an example herself. We all can learn from people every day, sometimes especially from our youth.

See you next Sunday,

My Sunday Devotional to you.

I’m spending the weekend with my youngest daughter. We are visiting some colleges in NC preparing well in advance as she is presently a high school sophomore. As a parent going from campus to campus seeing the vast number of students, buildings and activities I naturally begin to ponder how my child will fair. My daughter gave me a glimpse yesterday.

During our many walks between buildings my daughter shared with me a particular lesson from Life Skills class she is taking. Several weeks ago in class they were to review the movie “Remember the Titans” and draw certain personal characteristics from the varying roles. These characteristics ranged from integrity, self-disciple, caring, respect, responsibility, perseverance and courage. She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

Now my daughter is experiencing growing pains like any other 15 year old. The idea of riding across the state of NC on a Saturday to see schools she other wise might not attend is not how she would chose to spend our time. However, knowing or unknowingly she was demonstrating the exact characteristics and actions for which she had just described. We had a very pleasant day even though is was long and she did nearly all the driving for dear ‘ole dad.

We don’t know when our actions might become an example to others. But if we live each day to honor Jesus, our behavior will model His righteousness, no matter who is watching.

Idealism and enthusiasm are often best expressed by the young. But uprightness and honor should be goals for Christians of every age. Paul tells of the glory of our youth: “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12).

My daughter has a desire to change the way people behave towards one another, by being an example herself. We all can learn from people every day, sometimes especially from our youth.

See you next Sunday,

All states are not created equal

by MJ in my PJs

InvestorCompsOnline has provided our members with extensive training into non-disclosure states. As we continue to search the nation and educate ourselves we consistently update our members on the new data and research we find.

During this routine research, we have discovered some non-disclosure states that do not provide mortgage information. Typically, we can extrapolate the value of a property using the mortgage data. But, what do you do when it’s not available? Well, InvestorCompsOnline has taken the time to research with county appraisers and assessors to get insight into how to valuate property in these markets. True “appraiser secrets for the investor”.

For example, Montana is a complete non-disclosure state. All the details of a sale are private, including the mortgage data. However, InvestorCompsOnline has discovered that it is an “ad valorem” state; which means it is taxed based on the true market value of the property. The local appraisers must analyze actual HUD’s, recorded deeds, and talk to home buyers to determine closed sales price. This information is not readily available on the local MLS. So what does the local investor do?

InvestorCompsOnline has done some of this preliminary research for you. We have determined after research with the Montana state government assessors and local appraisers that the taxable values are within a variance of approximately ten percent. Now this isn’t hard and fast, but it is a great start for helping these local investors determine market value of their deals.

This is just an example of the hard work, knowledge, and training InvestorCompsOnline provides to our members to keep them up to date on opportunities in their markets and training them to build the most successful real estate business they can.

My Sunday Devotional to you

by Mark Jackson

Here is something to think about, communications experts tell us that the average person speaks enough to fill 20 word processed pages every day. This means our mouths crank out enough words to fill 2 books of 300 pages each month, 24 books each year, and 1,200 books in 50 years of speaking. Thanks to cell phones, VoIP, voicemail, and face-to-face conversations and now social media, words comprise a large part of our lives. So the kinds of words we use are important.

David’s mouth was filled with praise when he wrote Psalm 126. The Lord had done great things for him and his people. Even the nations around them noticed. Remembering God’s blessings, he said, “Our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing” (v.2).

I challenge you to think of the words you would use in verse 3 had you been writing this psalm? So often, our attitude may seem to be: “The Lord has done great things for me, and I…
…can’t recall any of them right now.”
…am wondering what He’ll do for me next.”
…need much more.”

Or could you finish it by saying, “And I am praising and thanking Him for His goodness”? As you recall God’s blessings today, express your words of praise to Him. I admit often I do not keep the Father first at mind or in my words. Let us all use this message to keep what the Lord is doing through and for us in the words we us.

See you next Sunday,
MJ

PS Let no thought linger in your mind that you would be ashamed to let out of your mouth.

Foreclosure Investing

Extreme wealth can be captured simply by investing in real estate and foreclosures. Buying a property in foreclosure can be a lengthy process, and to make money investing in foreclosed homes, you have to have a thorough knowledge of the process. Getting into foreclosure investing uninformed can be a very risky proposition.

InvestorCompsOnline.com is the place to go for the training necessary to be an informed real estate investor.

As you begin to understand the basic process that foreclosed properties go through, you must take a look at your community and state laws that oversee the buying and selling of foreclosed houses. Depending on your investment plans, these laws may place barriers to your investment goals.

If, as part of your foreclosure investing goals, you want to fix and flip a property, the next step is basically to uncover a house that is in foreclosure. Your regional county posts a list every day, and if you don’t want to leave your home, go down to the recorder’s office, wait in line, and hopefully have accurate information: REO Goldminer.com is an online service that can give you a list of foreclosed properties and help you valuate them with a click of a button.

Financing is a big part of buying real estate and this is especially true when buying foreclosed homes. As a result, you have to have your financing in place before you buy the house.

InvestorCompsOnline.com
offers training in several avenues of alternate financing.

Finally, when you have your financing in place, and have found a home that will meet your investment goals, the next step is simply to valuate the property to make sure it is a “deal”. InvestorCompsOnline.com not only provides the comps, sales, and transfer history to valuate the property but we also provide you with the training necessary to give you a leg up on your competition. Be sure to access the knowledgebase, webinars, and teleclasses available online to be kept abreast and trained on the “hot topics” in the real estate industry today.

After you have closed on the residence and it is yours to keep and administer or rehab and fix, it is just a matter of getting to work. In summary, purchasing a foreclosed home is an easy process; you just need to know what you are doing.

For many investors, finding a foreclosed property can be a challenge. Visit REO GoldMiner.com to find those deals and then visit us at InvestorCompsOnline.com to valuate the deals and learn some skills that will make your real estate business stand heads and shoulders above the rest.

David’s mouth was filled with praise when he wrote Psalm 126. The Lord had done great things for him and his people. Even the nations around them noticed. Remembering God’s blessings, he said, “Our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing” (v.2).

I challenge you to think of the words you would use in verse 3 had you been writing this psalm? So often, our attitude may seem to be: “The Lord has done great things for me, and I…
…can’t recall any of them right now.”
…am wondering what He’ll do for me next.”
…need much more.”

Or could you finish it by saying, “And I am praising and thanking Him for His goodness”? As you recall God’s blessings today, express your words of praise to Him. I admit often I do not keep the Father first at mind or in my words. Let us all use this message to keep what the Lord is doing through and for us in the words we us.

See you next Sunday,

Foreclosure Investing

Extreme wealth can be captured simply by investing in real estate and foreclosures. Buying a property in foreclosure can be a lengthy process, and to make money investing in foreclosed homes, you have to have a thorough knowledge of the process. Getting into foreclosure investing uninformed can be a very risky proposition.

InvestorCompsOnline.com is the place to go for the training necessary to be an informed real estate investor.

As you begin to understand the basic process that foreclosed properties go through, you must take a look at your community and state laws that oversee the buying and selling of foreclosed houses. Depending on your investment plans, these laws may place barriers to your investment goals.

If, as part of your foreclosure investing goals, you want to fix and flip a property, the next step is basically to uncover a house that is in foreclosure. Your regional county posts a list every day, and if you don’t want to leave your home, go down to the recorder’s office, wait in line, and hopefully have accurate information: REO Goldminer.com is an online service that can give you a list of foreclosed properties and help you valuate them with a click of a button.

Financing is a big part of buying real estate and this is especially true when buying foreclosed homes. As a result, you have to have your financing in place before you buy the house.

InvestorCompsOnline.com
offers training in several avenues of alternate financing.

Finally, when you have your financing in place, and have found a home that will meet your investment goals, the next step is simply to valuate the property to make sure it is a “deal”. InvestorCompsOnline.com not only provides the comps, sales, and transfer history to valuate the property but we also provide you with the training necessary to give you a leg up on your competition. Be sure to access the knowledgebase, webinars, and teleclasses available online to be kept abreast and trained on the “hot topics” in the real estate industry today.

After you have closed on the residence and it is yours to keep and administer or rehab and fix, it is just a matter of getting to work. In summary, purchasing a foreclosed home is an easy process; you just need to know what you are doing.

For many investors, finding a foreclosed property can be a challenge. Visit REO GoldMiner.com to find those deals and then visit us at InvestorCompsOnline.com to valuate the deals and learn some skills that will make your real estate business stand heads and shoulders above the rest.

I’m spending the weekend with my youngest daughter. We are visiting some colleges in NC preparing well in advance as she is presently a high school sophomore. As a parent going from campus to campus seeing the vast number of students, buildings and activities I naturally begin to ponder how my child will fair. My daughter gave me a glimpse yesterday.

During our many walks between buildings my daughter shared with me a particular lesson from Life Skills class she is taking. Several weeks ago in class they were to review the movie “Remember the Titans” and draw certain personal characteristics from the varying roles. These characteristics ranged from integrity, self-disciple, caring, respect, responsibility, perseverance and courage. She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

Now my daughter is experiencing growing pains like any other 15 year old. The idea of riding across the state of NC on a Saturday to see schools she other wise might not attend is not how she would chose to spend our time. However, knowing or unknowingly she was demonstrating the exact characteristics and actions for which she had just described. We had a very pleasant day even though is was long and she did nearly all the driving for dear ‘ole dad.

We don’t know when our actions might become an example to others. But if we live each day to honor Jesus, our behavior will model His righteousness, no matter who is watching.

Idealism and enthusiasm are often best expressed by the young. But uprightness and honor should be goals for Christians of every age. Paul tells of the glory of our youth: “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12).

My daughter has a desire to change the way people behave towards one another, by being an example herself. We all can learn from people every day, sometimes especially from our youth.

See you next Sunday,

All states are not created equal

by MJ in my PJs

InvestorCompsOnline has provided our members with extensive training into non-disclosure states. As we continue to search the nation and educate ourselves we consistently update our members on the new data and research we find.

During this routine research, we have discovered some non-disclosure states that do not provide mortgage information. Typically, we can extrapolate the value of a property using the mortgage data. But, what do you do when it’s not available? Well, InvestorCompsOnline has taken the time to research with county appraisers and assessors to get insight into how to valuate property in these markets. True “appraiser secrets for the investor”.

For example, Montana is a complete non-disclosure state. All the details of a sale are private, including the mortgage data. However, InvestorCompsOnline has discovered that it is an “ad valorem” state; which means it is taxed based on the true market value of the property. The local appraisers must analyze actual HUD’s, recorded deeds, and talk to home buyers to determine closed sales price. This information is not readily available on the local MLS. So what does the local investor do?

InvestorCompsOnline has done some of this preliminary research for you. We have determined after research with the Montana state government assessors and local appraisers that the taxable values are within a variance of approximately ten percent. Now this isn’t hard and fast, but it is a great start for helping these local investors determine market value of their deals.

This is just an example of the hard work, knowledge, and training InvestorCompsOnline provides to our members to keep them up to date on opportunities in their markets and training them to build the most successful real estate business they can.

Here is something to think about, communications experts tell us that the average person speaks enough to fill 20 word processed pages every day. This means our mouths crank out enough words to fill 2 books of 300 pages each month, 24 books each year, and 1,200 books in 50 years of speaking. Thanks to cell phones, VoIP, voicemail, and face-to-face conversations and now social media, words comprise a large part of our lives. So the kinds of words we use are important.

She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

However, InvestorCompsOnline has discovered that it is an “ad valorem” state; which means it is taxed based on the true market value of the property. The local appraisers must analyze actual HUD’s, recorded deeds, and talk to home buyers to determine closed sales price. This information is not readily available on the local MLS. So what does the local investor do?

InvestorCompsOnline has done some of this preliminary research for you. We have determined after research with the Montana state government assessors and local appraisers that the taxable values are within a variance of approximately ten percent. Now this isn’t hard and fast, but it is a great start for helping these local investors determine market value of their deals.

This is just an example of the hard work, knowledge, and training InvestorCompsOnline provides to our members to keep them up to date on opportunities in their markets and training them to build the most successful real estate business they can.

My Sunday Devotional to you

by Mark Jackson

Here is something to think about, communications experts tell us that the average person speaks enough to fill 20 word processed pages every day. This means our mouths crank out enough words to fill 2 books of 300 pages each month, 24 books each year, and 1,200 books in 50 years of speaking. Thanks to cell phones, VoIP, voicemail, and face-to-face conversations and now social media, words comprise a large part of our lives. So the kinds of words we use are important.

David’s mouth was filled with praise when he wrote Psalm 126. The Lord had done great things for him and his people. Even the nations around them noticed. Remembering God’s blessings, he said, “Our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing” (v.2).

I challenge you to think of the words you would use in verse 3 had you been writing this psalm? So often, our attitude may seem to be: “The Lord has done great things for me, and I…
…can’t recall any of them right now.”
…am wondering what He’ll do for me next.”
…need much more.”

Or could you finish it by saying, “And I am praising and thanking Him for His goodness”? As you recall God’s blessings today, express your words of praise to Him. I admit often I do not keep the Father first at mind or in my words. Let us all use this message to keep what the Lord is doing through and for us in the words we us.

See you next Sunday,

Foreclosure Investing

Extreme wealth can be captured simply by investing in real estate and foreclosures. Buying a property in foreclosure can be a lengthy process, and to make money investing in foreclosed homes, you have to have a thorough knowledge of the process. Getting into foreclosure investing uninformed can be a very risky proposition.

InvestorCompsOnline.com is the place to go for the training necessary to be an informed real estate investor.

As you begin to understand the basic process that foreclosed properties go through, you must take a look at your community and state laws that oversee the buying and selling of foreclosed houses. Depending on your investment plans, these laws may place barriers to your investment goals.

If, as part of your foreclosure investing goals, you want to fix and flip a property, the next step is basically to uncover a house that is in foreclosure. Your regional county posts a list every day, and if you don’t want to leave your home, go down to the recorder’s office, wait in line, and hopefully have accurate information: REO Goldminer.com is an online service that can give you a list of foreclosed properties and help you valuate them with a click of a button.

Financing is a big part of buying real estate and this is especially true when buying foreclosed homes. As a result, you have to have your financing in place before you buy the house.

InvestorCompsOnline.com
offers training in several avenues of alternate financing.

Finally, when you have your financing in place, and have found a home that will meet your investment goals, the next step is simply to valuate the property to make sure it is a “deal”. InvestorCompsOnline.com not only provides the comps, sales, and transfer history to valuate the property but we also provide you with the training necessary to give you a leg up on your competition. Be sure to access the knowledgebase, webinars, and teleclasses available online to be kept abreast and trained on the “hot topics” in the real estate industry today.

After you have closed on the residence and it is yours to keep and administer or rehab and fix, it is just a matter of getting to work. In summary, purchasing a foreclosed home is an easy process; you just need to know what you are doing.

For many investors, finding a foreclosed property can be a challenge. Visit REO GoldMiner.com to find those deals and then visit us at InvestorCompsOnline.com to valuate the deals and learn some skills that will make your real estate business stand heads and shoulders above the rest.

My Sunday Devotional to you.

I’m spending the weekend with my youngest daughter. We are visiting some colleges in NC preparing well in advance as she is presently a high school sophomore. As a parent going from campus to campus seeing the vast number of students, buildings and activities I naturally begin to ponder how my child will fair. My daughter gave me a glimpse yesterday.

During our many walks between buildings my daughter shared with me a particular lesson from Life Skills class she is taking. Several weeks ago in class they were to review the movie “Remember the Titans” and draw certain personal characteristics from the varying roles. These characteristics ranged from integrity, self-disciple, caring, respect, responsibility, perseverance and courage. She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

Now my daughter is experiencing growing pains like any other 15 year old. The idea of riding across the state of NC on a Saturday to see schools she other wise might not attend is not how she would chose to spend our time. However, knowing or unknowingly she was demonstrating the exact characteristics and actions for which she had just described. We had a very pleasant day even though is was long and she did nearly all the driving for dear ‘ole dad.

We don’t know when our actions might become an example to others. But if we live each day to honor Jesus, our behavior will model His righteousness, no matter who is watching.

Idealism and enthusiasm are often best expressed by the young. But uprightness and honor should be goals for Christians of every age. Paul tells of the glory of our youth: “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12).

My daughter has a desire to change the way people behave towards one another, by being an example herself. We all can learn from people every day, sometimes especially from our youth.

See you next Sunday,

My Sunday Devotional to you.

I’m spending the weekend with my youngest daughter. We are visiting some colleges in NC preparing well in advance as she is presently a high school sophomore. As a parent going from campus to campus seeing the vast number of students, buildings and activities I naturally begin to ponder how my child will fair. My daughter gave me a glimpse yesterday.

During our many walks between buildings my daughter shared with me a particular lesson from Life Skills class she is taking. Several weeks ago in class they were to review the movie “Remember the Titans” and draw certain personal characteristics from the varying roles. These characteristics ranged from integrity, self-disciple, caring, respect, responsibility, perseverance and courage. She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

Now my daughter is experiencing growing pains like any other 15 year old. The idea of riding across the state of NC on a Saturday to see schools she other wise might not attend is not how she would chose to spend our time. However, knowing or unknowingly she was demonstrating the exact characteristics and actions for which she had just described. We had a very pleasant day even though is was long and she did nearly all the driving for dear ‘ole dad.

We don’t know when our actions might become an example to others. But if we live each day to honor Jesus, our behavior will model His righteousness, no matter who is watching.

Idealism and enthusiasm are often best expressed by the young. But uprightness and honor should be goals for Christians of every age. Paul tells of the glory of our youth: “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12).

My daughter has a desire to change the way people behave towards one another, by being an example herself. We all can learn from people every day, sometimes especially from our youth.

See you next Sunday,

All states are not created equal

by MJ in my PJs

InvestorCompsOnline has provided our members with extensive training into non-disclosure states. As we continue to search the nation and educate ourselves we consistently update our members on the new data and research we find.

During this routine research, we have discovered some non-disclosure states that do not provide mortgage information. Typically, we can extrapolate the value of a property using the mortgage data. But, what do you do when it’s not available? Well, InvestorCompsOnline has taken the time to research with county appraisers and assessors to get insight into how to valuate property in these markets. True “appraiser secrets for the investor”.

For example, Montana is a complete non-disclosure state. All the details of a sale are private, including the mortgage data. However, InvestorCompsOnline has discovered that it is an “ad valorem” state; which means it is taxed based on the true market value of the property. The local appraisers must analyze actual HUD’s, recorded deeds, and talk to home buyers to determine closed sales price. This information is not readily available on the local MLS. So what does the local investor do?

InvestorCompsOnline has done some of this preliminary research for you. We have determined after research with the Montana state government assessors and local appraisers that the taxable values are within a variance of approximately ten percent. Now this isn’t hard and fast, but it is a great start for helping these local investors determine market value of their deals.

This is just an example of the hard work, knowledge, and training InvestorCompsOnline provides to our members to keep them up to date on opportunities in their markets and training them to build the most successful real estate business they can.

My Sunday Devotional to you

by Mark Jackson

Here is something to think about, communications experts tell us that the average person speaks enough to fill 20 word processed pages every day. This means our mouths crank out enough words to fill 2 books of 300 pages each month, 24 books each year, and 1,200 books in 50 years of speaking. Thanks to cell phones, VoIP, voicemail, and face-to-face conversations and now social media, words comprise a large part of our lives. So the kinds of words we use are important.

David’s mouth was filled with praise when he wrote Psalm 126. The Lord had done great things for him and his people. Even the nations around them noticed. Remembering God’s blessings, he said, “Our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing” (v.2).

I challenge you to think of the words you would use in verse 3 had you been writing this psalm? So often, our attitude may seem to be: “The Lord has done great things for me, and I…
…can’t recall any of them right now.”
…am wondering what He’ll do for me next.”
…need much more.”

Or could you finish it by saying, “And I am praising and thanking Him for His goodness”? As you recall God’s blessings today, express your words of praise to Him. I admit often I do not keep the Father first at mind or in my words. Let us all use this message to keep what the Lord is doing through and for us in the words we us.

See you next Sunday,
MJ

PS Let no thought linger in your mind that you would be ashamed to let out of your mouth.

Foreclosure Investing

Extreme wealth can be captured simply by investing in real estate and foreclosures. Buying a property in foreclosure can be a lengthy process, and to make money investing in foreclosed homes, you have to have a thorough knowledge of the process. Getting into foreclosure investing uninformed can be a very risky proposition.

InvestorCompsOnline.com is the place to go for the training necessary to be an informed real estate investor.

As you begin to understand the basic process that foreclosed properties go through, you must take a look at your community and state laws that oversee the buying and selling of foreclosed houses. Depending on your investment plans, these laws may place barriers to your investment goals.

If, as part of your foreclosure investing goals, you want to fix and flip a property, the next step is basically to uncover a house that is in foreclosure. Your regional county posts a list every day, and if you don’t want to leave your home, go down to the recorder’s office, wait in line, and hopefully have accurate information: REO Goldminer.com is an online service that can give you a list of foreclosed properties and help you valuate them with a click of a button.

Financing is a big part of buying real estate and this is especially true when buying foreclosed homes. As a result, you have to have your financing in place before you buy the house.

InvestorCompsOnline.com
offers training in several avenues of alternate financing.

Finally, when you have your financing in place, and have found a home that will meet your investment goals, the next step is simply to valuate the property to make sure it is a “deal”. InvestorCompsOnline.com not only provides the comps, sales, and transfer history to valuate the property but we also provide you with the training necessary to give you a leg up on your competition. Be sure to access the knowledgebase, webinars, and teleclasses available online to be kept abreast and trained on the “hot topics” in the real estate industry today.

After you have closed on the residence and it is yours to keep and administer or rehab and fix, it is just a matter of getting to work. In summary, purchasing a foreclosed home is an easy process; you just need to know what you are doing.

For many investors, finding a foreclosed property can be a challenge. Visit REO GoldMiner.com to find those deals and then visit us at InvestorCompsOnline.com to valuate the deals and learn some skills that will make your real estate business stand heads and shoulders above the rest.

David’s mouth was filled with praise when he wrote Psalm 126. The Lord had done great things for him and his people. Even the nations around them noticed. Remembering God’s blessings, he said, “Our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing” (v.2).

I challenge you to think of the words you would use in verse 3 had you been writing this psalm? So often, our attitude may seem to be: “The Lord has done great things for me, and I…
…can’t recall any of them right now.”
…am wondering what He’ll do for me next.”
…need much more.”

Or could you finish it by saying, “And I am praising and thanking Him for His goodness”? As you recall God’s blessings today, express your words of praise to Him. I admit often I do not keep the Father first at mind or in my words. Let us all use this message to keep what the Lord is doing through and for us in the words we us.

See you next Sunday,

Foreclosure Investing

Extreme wealth can be captured simply by investing in real estate and foreclosures. Buying a property in foreclosure can be a lengthy process, and to make money investing in foreclosed homes, you have to have a thorough knowledge of the process. Getting into foreclosure investing uninformed can be a very risky proposition.

InvestorCompsOnline.com is the place to go for the training necessary to be an informed real estate investor.

As you begin to understand the basic process that foreclosed properties go through, you must take a look at your community and state laws that oversee the buying and selling of foreclosed houses. Depending on your investment plans, these laws may place barriers to your investment goals.

If, as part of your foreclosure investing goals, you want to fix and flip a property, the next step is basically to uncover a house that is in foreclosure. Your regional county posts a list every day, and if you don’t want to leave your home, go down to the recorder’s office, wait in line, and hopefully have accurate information: REO Goldminer.com is an online service that can give you a list of foreclosed properties and help you valuate them with a click of a button.

Financing is a big part of buying real estate and this is especially true when buying foreclosed homes. As a result, you have to have your financing in place before you buy the house.

InvestorCompsOnline.com
offers training in several avenues of alternate financing.

Finally, when you have your financing in place, and have found a home that will meet your investment goals, the next step is simply to valuate the property to make sure it is a “deal”. InvestorCompsOnline.com not only provides the comps, sales, and transfer history to valuate the property but we also provide you with the training necessary to give you a leg up on your competition. Be sure to access the knowledgebase, webinars, and teleclasses available online to be kept abreast and trained on the “hot topics” in the real estate industry today.

After you have closed on the residence and it is yours to keep and administer or rehab and fix, it is just a matter of getting to work. In summary, purchasing a foreclosed home is an easy process; you just need to know what you are doing.

For many investors, finding a foreclosed property can be a challenge. Visit REO GoldMiner.com to find those deals and then visit us at InvestorCompsOnline.com to valuate the deals and learn some skills that will make your real estate business stand heads and shoulders above the rest.

I’m spending the weekend with my youngest daughter. We are visiting some colleges in NC preparing well in advance as she is presently a high school sophomore. As a parent going from campus to campus seeing the vast number of students, buildings and activities I naturally begin to ponder how my child will fair. My daughter gave me a glimpse yesterday.

During our many walks between buildings my daughter shared with me a particular lesson from Life Skills class she is taking. Several weeks ago in class they were to review the movie “Remember the Titans” and draw certain personal characteristics from the varying roles. These characteristics ranged from integrity, self-disciple, caring, respect, responsibility, perseverance and courage. She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

Now my daughter is experiencing growing pains like any other 15 year old. The idea of riding across the state of NC on a Saturday to see schools she other wise might not attend is not how she would chose to spend our time. However, knowing or unknowingly she was demonstrating the exact characteristics and actions for which she had just described. We had a very pleasant day even though is was long and she did nearly all the driving for dear ‘ole dad.

We don’t know when our actions might become an example to others. But if we live each day to honor Jesus, our behavior will model His righteousness, no matter who is watching.

Idealism and enthusiasm are often best expressed by the young. But uprightness and honor should be goals for Christians of every age. Paul tells of the glory of our youth: “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12).

My daughter has a desire to change the way people behave towards one another, by being an example herself. We all can learn from people every day, sometimes especially from our youth.

See you next Sunday,

All states are not created equal

by MJ in my PJs

InvestorCompsOnline has provided our members with extensive training into non-disclosure states. As we continue to search the nation and educate ourselves we consistently update our members on the new data and research we find.

During this routine research, we have discovered some non-disclosure states that do not provide mortgage information. Typically, we can extrapolate the value of a property using the mortgage data. But, what do you do when it’s not available? Well, InvestorCompsOnline has taken the time to research with county appraisers and assessors to get insight into how to valuate property in these markets. True “appraiser secrets for the investor”.

For example, Montana is a complete non-disclosure state. All the details of a sale are private, including the mortgage data. However, InvestorCompsOnline has discovered that it is an “ad valorem” state; which means it is taxed based on the true market value of the property. The local appraisers must analyze actual HUD’s, recorded deeds, and talk to home buyers to determine closed sales price. This information is not readily available on the local MLS. So what does the local investor do?

InvestorCompsOnline has done some of this preliminary research for you. We have determined after research with the Montana state government assessors and local appraisers that the taxable values are within a variance of approximately ten percent. Now this isn’t hard and fast, but it is a great start for helping these local investors determine market value of their deals.

This is just an example of the hard work, knowledge, and training InvestorCompsOnline provides to our members to keep them up to date on opportunities in their markets and training them to build the most successful real estate business they can.

Here is something to think about, communications experts tell us that the average person speaks enough to fill 20 word processed pages every day. This means our mouths crank out enough words to fill 2 books of 300 pages each month, 24 books each year, and 1,200 books in 50 years of speaking. Thanks to cell phones, VoIP, voicemail, and face-to-face conversations and now social media, words comprise a large part of our lives. So the kinds of words we use are important.

She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

However, InvestorCompsOnline has discovered that it is an “ad valorem” state; which means it is taxed based on the true market value of the property. The local appraisers must analyze actual HUD’s, recorded deeds, and talk to home buyers to determine closed sales price. This information is not readily available on the local MLS. So what does the local investor do?

InvestorCompsOnline has done some of this preliminary research for you. We have determined after research with the Montana state government assessors and local appraisers that the taxable values are within a variance of approximately ten percent. Now this isn’t hard and fast, but it is a great start for helping these local investors determine market value of their deals.

This is just an example of the hard work, knowledge, and training InvestorCompsOnline provides to our members to keep them up to date on opportunities in their markets and training them to build the most successful real estate business they can.

All states are not created equal

InvestorCompsOnline has provided our members with extensive training into non-disclosure states. As we continue to search the nation and educate ourselves we consistently update our members on the new data and research we find.

During this routine research, we have discovered some non-disclosure states that do not provide mortgage information. Typically, we can extrapolate the value of a property using the mortgage data. But, what do you do when it’s not available?

My Sunday Devotional to you

by Mark Jackson

Here is something to think about, communications experts tell us that the average person speaks enough to fill 20 word processed pages every day. This means our mouths crank out enough words to fill 2 books of 300 pages each month, 24 books each year, and 1,200 books in 50 years of speaking. Thanks to cell phones, VoIP, voicemail, and face-to-face conversations and now social media, words comprise a large part of our lives. So the kinds of words we use are important.

David’s mouth was filled with praise when he wrote Psalm 126. The Lord had done great things for him and his people. Even the nations around them noticed. Remembering God’s blessings, he said, “Our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing” (v.2).

I challenge you to think of the words you would use in verse 3 had you been writing this psalm? So often, our attitude may seem to be: “The Lord has done great things for me, and I…
…can’t recall any of them right now.”
…am wondering what He’ll do for me next.”
…need much more.”

Or could you finish it by saying, “And I am praising and thanking Him for His goodness”? As you recall God’s blessings today, express your words of praise to Him. I admit often I do not keep the Father first at mind or in my words. Let us all use this message to keep what the Lord is doing through and for us in the words we us.

See you next Sunday,
MJ

PS Let no thought linger in your mind that you would be ashamed to let out of your mouth.

Foreclosure Investing

Extreme wealth can be captured simply by investing in real estate and foreclosures. Buying a property in foreclosure can be a lengthy process, and to make money investing in foreclosed homes, you have to have a thorough knowledge of the process. Getting into foreclosure investing uninformed can be a very risky proposition.

InvestorCompsOnline.com is the place to go for the training necessary to be an informed real estate investor.

As you begin to understand the basic process that foreclosed properties go through, you must take a look at your community and state laws that oversee the buying and selling of foreclosed houses. Depending on your investment plans, these laws may place barriers to your investment goals.

If, as part of your foreclosure investing goals, you want to fix and flip a property, the next step is basically to uncover a house that is in foreclosure. Your regional county posts a list every day, and if you don’t want to leave your home, go down to the recorder’s office, wait in line, and hopefully have accurate information: REO Goldminer.com is an online service that can give you a list of foreclosed properties and help you valuate them with a click of a button.

Financing is a big part of buying real estate and this is especially true when buying foreclosed homes. As a result, you have to have your financing in place before you buy the house.

InvestorCompsOnline.com
offers training in several avenues of alternate financing.

Finally, when you have your financing in place, and have found a home that will meet your investment goals, the next step is simply to valuate the property to make sure it is a “deal”. InvestorCompsOnline.com not only provides the comps, sales, and transfer history to valuate the property but we also provide you with the training necessary to give you a leg up on your competition. Be sure to access the knowledgebase, webinars, and teleclasses available online to be kept abreast and trained on the “hot topics” in the real estate industry today.

After you have closed on the residence and it is yours to keep and administer or rehab and fix, it is just a matter of getting to work. In summary, purchasing a foreclosed home is an easy process; you just need to know what you are doing.

For many investors, finding a foreclosed property can be a challenge. Visit REO GoldMiner.com to find those deals and then visit us at InvestorCompsOnline.com to valuate the deals and learn some skills that will make your real estate business stand heads and shoulders above the rest.

My Sunday Devotional to you.

I’m spending the weekend with my youngest daughter. We are visiting some colleges in NC preparing well in advance as she is presently a high school sophomore. As a parent going from campus to campus seeing the vast number of students, buildings and activities I naturally begin to ponder how my child will fair. My daughter gave me a glimpse yesterday.

During our many walks between buildings my daughter shared with me a particular lesson from Life Skills class she is taking. Several weeks ago in class they were to review the movie “Remember the Titans” and draw certain personal characteristics from the varying roles. These characteristics ranged from integrity, self-disciple, caring, respect, responsibility, perseverance and courage. She rattled all seven off as though they were second nature with a complete description reflecting the value if each trait.

Now my daughter is experiencing growing pains like any other 15 year old. The idea of riding across the state of NC on a Saturday to see schools she other wise might not attend is not how she would chose to spend our time. However, knowing or unknowingly she was demonstrating the exact characteristics and actions for which she had just described. We had a very pleasant day even though is was long and she did nearly all the driving for dear ‘ole dad.

We don’t know when our actions might become an example to others. But if we live each day to honor Jesus, our behavior will model His righteousness, no matter who is watching.

Idealism and enthusiasm are often best expressed by the young. But uprightness and honor should be goals for Christians of every age. Paul tells of the glory of our youth: “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12).

My daughter has a desire to change the way people behave towards one another, by being an example herself. We all can learn from people every day, sometimes especially from our youth.

See you next Sunday,
MJ
