RE Investing Perks

Becoming a real estate investor can help you earn huge profits, regardless of the current financial crisis.  Taking advantage of real estate comps to price your property competitively is they way to play the game.   Let’s take a look at some perks of real estate investing and what makes properties profitable.

Real Estate Investing (REI) is more advantageous than, let’s say, buying stocks.  As we all know, stock prices are volatile and they go up and down almost everyday.  With REI, however, you don’t have to be afraid of losing all your investment capital in one day as real estate prices are relatively stable, unlike stock prices.

Another perk of REI is that you can get access to a continuous source of income. Instead of selling a house that you have rehabbed, you can find tenants for the property. This way you can collect rental income every month. And if you put additional amenities into the property, you can collect higher rent.

However, to succeed in the REI business, you have to make sure that all the properties you will invest in will bring you big profits.  So what makes a property profitable? The first answer would be its location. If the property is located in the best school district in a city or county, and close to a major highway,  chances are it can fetch a higher price even before you fix its leaking roof and paint its walls.

Upcoming urban development projects in the area where the property is located can also boost its profitability and marketability. People would naturally relocate to places that can offer them great living arrangements, thus, it would be wise to invest in houses located in such areas.

Many people venture into real estate for the financial gain,  millions have been and will be made from this lucrative investment field.  Take advantage of the perks,  jump in and learn the ropes and watch your RE business take off!

3 Easy Selling Tips

It is no hidden truth that selling a property is not always an easy task; houses even in the best areas can stay there for months or years.  This market offers great opportunities, so home buyers can have their pick; it is the seller who has to work hard to make a sale. One should keep in mind the sooner you sell your property the better profit you make. Using real estate comps to determine your price is a no-brainer.  But, here are a few tips on how to sell your property quickly you may not have thought of.

Price competitively
Price is the biggest factor that decides the final sale, even if the prospective buyer falls in love and the location suits him. Keep the price right if you want to sell it fast in this sluggish economy. Also, make sure that your property is priced a bit lower than other comparable houses in the area. While pricing, keep in mind you are competing with foreclosure and you may also want to give incentives such as closing costs, a decorative and appliance allowance and more.

Try a Home Auction
Having an auction of your home can be good option if you want to sell your house fast instead of waiting for months for buyers to come along. You can opt for online home auctions services offered by eBay home auctions or other services.

These above mentioned tips are easy options to use when you want to get a property sold and get it sold fast.  I encourage you to take a moment to put them into play in the game of real estate investing and get your business on the winning team!

Hard Money Investing! Part 2

When the inventory of properties for sale increases a buyer’s market has been created.  Using real estate comps to prepare yourself to make purchases is key to your deal being profitable in this type of market.   

Without investors purchasing these deals, the banks inventory would be substantially greater than it is.  The increasing number of deals being facilitated by private lenders has enabled banks to cut losses and get out of the property management business.   Many markets have already begun to experience price increases on a calendar month to month basis, and while not as substantial as in prior years, it’s definitely a positive sign for us all.

Many investors have turned to private money lenders as a result of banks and conventional lenders having a lack of lending programs in place for acquisition of non-owner occupied property.  While on the other end, private lenders have filled the void by developing aggressive loan programs and even, in some cases, loans that extend for up to 4 years enabling an investor to buy a property and use it as a rental property while the property appreciates in value and can be resold for a profit.  These types of deals enable the investor to have an investment strategy with greater potential for profit and lower risk for both investor and funder.

This innovative strategy of using a hard money lenders to invest in real estate has given many investors business’ the financial boost they needed to remain profitable in this market.  I encourage you to take a look at this technique and see if will work for you and your business.

Hard Money Investing!

As real estate markets begin to take root, investors are doing more deals which involve REO, bank owned property, and government agency owned property.    Taking real estate comps information gathered from InvestorComspOnline will give you the tools to value the property prior to acquisition.  I wanted to talk about a particular type of financial access investors are using to make these deals happen fast, private hard money lenders.  Real estate investor deals for these REO properties can be funded by these type of lenders, lenders who offer a short term funding alternative, from which an investor can utilize to purchase investment deals.

Investors are using a variety of exit strategies but the most common involves purchasing property and selling to a homebuyer at a profit within a short term.  Generally the property is placed on the market using the multiple listing service and then resold to a homebuyer at a retail price within reason to a lesser extent than the market value of the property.

Taking notice of the new strategies that are being used and jumping on board with them can propel your business to the top.  Tomorrow I want to continue talking about hard money lending and how it can help you rehab, rent and/or resell investment properties.

RE Comps, Making Them Work For You!

In real estate investing, your profits are determined on how you buy the property. Not so much on how much you sell it for. Running the real estate comps is a key to your success. You must know what the property is worth fixed up, as well as what properties are selling for compared to your subject property in today’s market. In today’s marke,t comps are handled a little differently than how they were back in 2005-2006.  Your InvestorCompsOnline account is a reliable source for all the comparables information you need.

When comparing a property always make sure to take note of the square feet, bedrooms, and bathrooms. If your wholesaling, all if not most of your buyers will be cash investors. So you need to find out what the properties are selling for cash, near the subject area. Don’t go comparing apples to oranges now. Instead compare that 3 bed 2 bath 1400 sq ft to a similar house sold recently cash. Look at the properties that sold in the past 3-6 months max.

Okay guys,  Please keep this information in mind when you are researching and partaking in real estate transactions.  I truly believe information is power  and it empowers you to excel!  Get ready to take your business to the next level!

Becoming a real estate investor can help you earn huge profits, regardless of the current financial crisis.  Taking advantage of real estate comps to price your property competitively is they way to play the game.   Let’s take a look at some perks of real estate investing and what makes properties profitable.

Real Estate Investing (REI) is more advantageous than, let’s say, buying stocks.  As we all know, stock prices are volatile and they go up and down almost everyday.  With REI, however, you don’t have to be afraid of losing all your investment capital in one day as real estate prices are relatively stable, unlike stock prices.

Another perk of REI is that you can get access to a continuous source of income. Instead of selling a house that you have rehabbed, you can find tenants for the property. This way you can collect rental income every month. And if you put additional amenities into the property, you can collect higher rent.

However, to succeed in the REI business, you have to make sure that all the properties you will invest in will bring you big profits.  So what makes a property profitable? The first answer would be its location. If the property is located in the best school district in a city or county, and close to a major highway,  chances are it can fetch a higher price even before you fix its leaking roof and paint its walls.

Upcoming urban development projects in the area where the property is located can also boost its profitability and marketability. People would naturally relocate to places that can offer them great living arrangements, thus, it would be wise to invest in houses located in such areas.

Many people venture into real estate for the financial gain,  millions have been and will be made from this lucrative investment field.  Take advantage of the perks,  jump in and learn the ropes and watch your RE business take off!

3 Easy Selling Tips

It is no hidden truth that selling a property is not always an easy task; houses even in the best areas can stay there for months or years.  This market offers great opportunities, so home buyers can have their pick; it is the seller who has to work hard to make a sale. One should keep in mind the sooner you sell your property the better profit you make. Using real estate comps to determine your price is a no-brainer.  But, here are a few tips on how to sell your property quickly you may not have thought of.

Price competitively
Price is the biggest factor that decides the final sale, even if the prospective buyer falls in love and the location suits him. Keep the price right if you want to sell it fast in this sluggish economy. Also, make sure that your property is priced a bit lower than other comparable houses in the area. While pricing, keep in mind you are competing with foreclosure and you may also want to give incentives such as closing costs, a decorative and appliance allowance and more.

Try a Home Auction
Having an auction of your home can be good option if you want to sell your house fast instead of waiting for months for buyers to come along. You can opt for online home auctions services offered by eBay home auctions or other services.

These above mentioned tips are easy options to use when you want to get a property sold and get it sold fast.  I encourage you to take a moment to put them into play in the game of real estate investing and get your business on the winning team!

Hard Money Investing! Part 2

When the inventory of properties for sale increases a buyer’s market has been created.  Using real estate comps to prepare yourself to make purchases is key to your deal being profitable in this type of market.   

Without investors purchasing these deals, the banks inventory would be substantially greater than it is.  The increasing number of deals being facilitated by private lenders has enabled banks to cut losses and get out of the property management business.   Many markets have already begun to experience price increases on a calendar month to month basis, and while not as substantial as in prior years, it’s definitely a positive sign for us all.

Many investors have turned to private money lenders as a result of banks and conventional lenders having a lack of lending programs in place for acquisition of non-owner occupied property.  While on the other end, private lenders have filled the void by developing aggressive loan programs and even, in some cases, loans that extend for up to 4 years enabling an investor to buy a property and use it as a rental property while the property appreciates in value and can be resold for a profit.  These types of deals enable the investor to have an investment strategy with greater potential for profit and lower risk for both investor and funder.

This innovative strategy of using a hard money lenders to invest in real estate has given many investors business’ the financial boost they needed to remain profitable in this market.  I encourage you to take a look at this technique and see if will work for you and your business.

Hard Money Investing!

As real estate markets begin to take root, investors are doing more deals which involve REO, bank owned property, and government agency owned property.    Taking real estate comps information gathered from InvestorComspOnline will give you the tools to value the property prior to acquisition.  I wanted to talk about a particular type of financial access investors are using to make these deals happen fast, private hard money lenders.  Real estate investor deals for these REO properties can be funded by these type of lenders, lenders who offer a short term funding alternative, from which an investor can utilize to purchase investment deals.

Investors are using a variety of exit strategies but the most common involves purchasing property and selling to a homebuyer at a profit within a short term.  Generally the property is placed on the market using the multiple listing service and then resold to a homebuyer at a retail price within reason to a lesser extent than the market value of the property.

Taking notice of the new strategies that are being used and jumping on board with them can propel your business to the top.  Tomorrow I want to continue talking about hard money lending and how it can help you rehab, rent and/or resell investment properties.

RE Comps, Making Them Work For You!

In real estate investing, your profits are determined on how you buy the property. Not so much on how much you sell it for. Running the real estate comps is a key to your success. You must know what the property is worth fixed up, as well as what properties are selling for compared to your subject property in today’s market. In today’s marke,t comps are handled a little differently than how they were back in 2005-2006.  Your InvestorCompsOnline account is a reliable source for all the comparables information you need.

When comparing a property always make sure to take note of the square feet, bedrooms, and bathrooms. If your wholesaling, all if not most of your buyers will be cash investors. So you need to find out what the properties are selling for cash, near the subject area. Don’t go comparing apples to oranges now. Instead compare that 3 bed 2 bath 1400 sq ft to a similar house sold recently cash. Look at the properties that sold in the past 3-6 months max.

Okay guys,  Please keep this information in mind when you are researching and partaking in real estate transactions.  I truly believe information is power  and it empowers you to excel!  Get ready to take your business to the next level!

Becoming a real estate investor can help you earn huge profits, regardless of the current financial crisis.  Taking advantage of real estate comps to price your property competitively is they way to play the game.   Let’s take a look at some perks of real estate investing and what makes properties profitable.

Real Estate Investing (REI) is more advantageous than, let’s say, buying stocks.  As we all know, stock prices are volatile and they go up and down almost everyday.  With REI, however, you don’t have to be afraid of losing all your investment capital in one day as real estate prices are relatively stable, unlike stock prices.

Another perk of REI is that you can get access to a continuous source of income. Instead of selling a house that you have rehabbed, you can find tenants for the property. This way you can collect rental income every month. And if you put additional amenities into the property, you can collect higher rent.

However, to succeed in the REI business, you have to make sure that all the properties you will invest in will bring you big profits.  So what makes a property profitable? The first answer would be its location. If the property is located in the best school district in a city or county, and close to a major highway,  chances are it can fetch a higher price even before you fix its leaking roof and paint its walls.

Upcoming urban development projects in the area where the property is located can also boost its profitability and marketability. People would naturally relocate to places that can offer them great living arrangements, thus, it would be wise to invest in houses located in such areas.

Many people venture into real estate for the financial gain,  millions have been and will be made from this lucrative investment field.  Take advantage of the perks,  jump in and learn the ropes and watch your RE business take off!

3 Easy Selling Tips

It is no hidden truth that selling a property is not always an easy task; houses even in the best areas can stay there for months or years.  This market offers great opportunities, so home buyers can have their pick; it is the seller who has to work hard to make a sale. One should keep in mind the sooner you sell your property the better profit you make. Using real estate comps to determine your price is a no-brainer.  But, here are a few tips on how to sell your property quickly you may not have thought of.

Price competitively
Price is the biggest factor that decides the final sale, even if the prospective buyer falls in love and the location suits him. Keep the price right if you want to sell it fast in this sluggish economy. Also, make sure that your property is priced a bit lower than other comparable houses in the area. While pricing, keep in mind you are competing with foreclosure and you may also want to give incentives such as closing costs, a decorative and appliance allowance and more.

Try a Home Auction
Having an auction of your home can be good option if you want to sell your house fast instead of waiting for months for buyers to come along. You can opt for online home auctions services offered by eBay home auctions or other services.

These above mentioned tips are easy options to use when you want to get a property sold and get it sold fast.  I encourage you to take a moment to put them into play in the game of real estate investing and get your business on the winning team!

Hard Money Investing! Part 2

When the inventory of properties for sale increases a buyer’s market has been created.  Using real estate comps to prepare yourself to make purchases is key to your deal being profitable in this type of market.   

Without investors purchasing these deals, the banks inventory would be substantially greater than it is.  The increasing number of deals being facilitated by private lenders has enabled banks to cut losses and get out of the property management business.   Many markets have already begun to experience price increases on a calendar month to month basis, and while not as substantial as in prior years, it’s definitely a positive sign for us all.

Many investors have turned to private money lenders as a result of banks and conventional lenders having a lack of lending programs in place for acquisition of non-owner occupied property.  While on the other end, private lenders have filled the void by developing aggressive loan programs and even, in some cases, loans that extend for up to 4 years enabling an investor to buy a property and use it as a rental property while the property appreciates in value and can be resold for a profit.  These types of deals enable the investor to have an investment strategy with greater potential for profit and lower risk for both investor and funder.

This innovative strategy of using a hard money lenders to invest in real estate has given many investors business’ the financial boost they needed to remain profitable in this market.  I encourage you to take a look at this technique and see if will work for you and your business.

Hard Money Investing!

As real estate markets begin to take root, investors are doing more deals which involve REO, bank owned property, and government agency owned property.    Taking real estate comps information gathered from InvestorComspOnline will give you the tools to value the property prior to acquisition.  I wanted to talk about a particular type of financial access investors are using to make these deals happen fast, private hard money lenders.  Real estate investor deals for these REO properties can be funded by these type of lenders, lenders who offer a short term funding alternative, from which an investor can utilize to purchase investment deals.

Investors are using a variety of exit strategies but the most common involves purchasing property and selling to a homebuyer at a profit within a short term.  Generally the property is placed on the market using the multiple listing service and then resold to a homebuyer at a retail price within reason to a lesser extent than the market value of the property.

Taking notice of the new strategies that are being used and jumping on board with them can propel your business to the top.  Tomorrow I want to continue talking about hard money lending and how it can help you rehab, rent and/or resell investment properties.

RE Comps, Making Them Work For You!

In real estate investing, your profits are determined on how you buy the property. Not so much on how much you sell it for. Running the real estate comps is a key to your success. You must know what the property is worth fixed up, as well as what properties are selling for compared to your subject property in today’s market. In today’s marke,t comps are handled a little differently than how they were back in 2005-2006.  Your InvestorCompsOnline account is a reliable source for all the comparables information you need.

When comparing a property always make sure to take note of the square feet, bedrooms, and bathrooms. If your wholesaling, all if not most of your buyers will be cash investors. So you need to find out what the properties are selling for cash, near the subject area. Don’t go comparing apples to oranges now. Instead compare that 3 bed 2 bath 1400 sq ft to a similar house sold recently cash. Look at the properties that sold in the past 3-6 months max.

Okay guys,  Please keep this information in mind when you are researching and partaking in real estate transactions.  I truly believe information is power  and it empowers you to excel!  Get ready to take your business to the next level!

Becoming a real estate investor can help you earn huge profits, regardless of the current financial crisis.  Taking advantage of real estate comps to price your property competitively is they way to play the game.   Let’s take a look at some perks of real estate investing and what makes properties profitable.

Real Estate Investing (REI) is more advantageous than, let’s say, buying stocks.  As we all know, stock prices are volatile and they go up and down almost everyday.  With REI, however, you don’t have to be afraid of losing all your investment capital in one day as real estate prices are relatively stable, unlike stock prices.

Another perk of REI is that you can get access to a continuous source of income. Instead of selling a house that you have rehabbed, you can find tenants for the property. This way you can collect rental income every month. And if you put additional amenities into the property, you can collect higher rent.

However, to succeed in the REI business, you have to make sure that all the properties you will invest in will bring you big profits.  So what makes a property profitable? The first answer would be its location. If the property is located in the best school district in a city or county, and close to a major highway,  chances are it can fetch a higher price even before you fix its leaking roof and paint its walls.

Upcoming urban development projects in the area where the property is located can also boost its profitability and marketability. People would naturally relocate to places that can offer them great living arrangements, thus, it would be wise to invest in houses located in such areas.

Many people venture into real estate for the financial gain,  millions have been and will be made from this lucrative investment field.  Take advantage of the perks,  jump in and learn the ropes and watch your RE business take off!

3 Easy Selling Tips

It is no hidden truth that selling a property is not always an easy task; houses even in the best areas can stay there for months or years.  This market offers great opportunities, so home buyers can have their pick; it is the seller who has to work hard to make a sale. One should keep in mind the sooner you sell your property the better profit you make. Using real estate comps to determine your price is a no-brainer.  But, here are a few tips on how to sell your property quickly you may not have thought of.

Price competitively
Price is the biggest factor that decides the final sale, even if the prospective buyer falls in love and the location suits him. Keep the price right if you want to sell it fast in this sluggish economy. Also, make sure that your property is priced a bit lower than other comparable houses in the area. While pricing, keep in mind you are competing with foreclosure and you may also want to give incentives such as closing costs, a decorative and appliance allowance and more.

Try a Home Auction
Having an auction of your home can be good option if you want to sell your house fast instead of waiting for months for buyers to come along. You can opt for online home auctions services offered by eBay home auctions or other services.

These above mentioned tips are easy options to use when you want to get a property sold and get it sold fast.  I encourage you to take a moment to put them into play in the game of real estate investing and get your business on the winning team!

Hard Money Investing! Part 2

When the inventory of properties for sale increases a buyer’s market has been created.  Using real estate comps to prepare yourself to make purchases is key to your deal being profitable in this type of market.   

Without investors purchasing these deals, the banks inventory would be substantially greater than it is.  The increasing number of deals being facilitated by private lenders has enabled banks to cut losses and get out of the property management business.   Many markets have already begun to experience price increases on a calendar month to month basis, and while not as substantial as in prior years, it’s definitely a positive sign for us all.

Many investors have turned to private money lenders as a result of banks and conventional lenders having a lack of lending programs in place for acquisition of non-owner occupied property.  While on the other end, private lenders have filled the void by developing aggressive loan programs and even, in some cases, loans that extend for up to 4 years enabling an investor to buy a property and use it as a rental property while the property appreciates in value and can be resold for a profit.  These types of deals enable the investor to have an investment strategy with greater potential for profit and lower risk for both investor and funder.

This innovative strategy of using a hard money lenders to invest in real estate has given many investors business’ the financial boost they needed to remain profitable in this market.  I encourage you to take a look at this technique and see if will work for you and your business.

Hard Money Investing!

As real estate markets begin to take root, investors are doing more deals which involve REO, bank owned property, and government agency owned property.    Taking real estate comps information gathered from InvestorComspOnline will give you the tools to value the property prior to acquisition.  I wanted to talk about a particular type of financial access investors are using to make these deals happen fast, private hard money lenders.  Real estate investor deals for these REO properties can be funded by these type of lenders, lenders who offer a short term funding alternative, from which an investor can utilize to purchase investment deals.

Investors are using a variety of exit strategies but the most common involves purchasing property and selling to a homebuyer at a profit within a short term.  Generally the property is placed on the market using the multiple listing service and then resold to a homebuyer at a retail price within reason to a lesser extent than the market value of the property.

Taking notice of the new strategies that are being used and jumping on board with them can propel your business to the top.  Tomorrow I want to continue talking about hard money lending and how it can help you rehab, rent and/or resell investment properties.

RE Comps, Making Them Work For You!

In real estate investing, your profits are determined on how you buy the property. Not so much on how much you sell it for. Running the real estate comps is a key to your success. You must know what the property is worth fixed up, as well as what properties are selling for compared to your subject property in today’s market. In today’s marke,t comps are handled a little differently than how they were back in 2005-2006.  Your InvestorCompsOnline account is a reliable source for all the comparables information you need.

When comparing a property always make sure to take note of the square feet, bedrooms, and bathrooms. If your wholesaling, all if not most of your buyers will be cash investors. So you need to find out what the properties are selling for cash, near the subject area. Don’t go comparing apples to oranges now. Instead compare that 3 bed 2 bath 1400 sq ft to a similar house sold recently cash. Look at the properties that sold in the past 3-6 months max.

Okay guys,  Please keep this information in mind when you are researching and partaking in real estate transactions.  I truly believe information is power  and it empowers you to excel!  Get ready to take your business to the next level!

Becoming a real estate investor can help you earn huge profits, regardless of the current financial crisis.  Taking advantage of real estate comps to price your property competitively is they way to play the game.   Let’s take a look at some perks of real estate investing and what makes properties profitable.

Real Estate Investing (REI) is more advantageous than, let’s say, buying stocks.  As we all know, stock prices are volatile and they go up and down almost everyday.  With REI, however, you don’t have to be afraid of losing all your investment capital in one day as real estate prices are relatively stable, unlike stock prices.

Another perk of REI is that you can get access to a continuous source of income. Instead of selling a house that you have rehabbed, you can find tenants for the property. This way you can collect rental income every month. And if you put additional amenities into the property, you can collect higher rent.

However, to succeed in the REI business, you have to make sure that all the properties you will invest in will bring you big profits.  So what makes a property profitable? The first answer would be its location. If the property is located in the best school district in a city or county, and close to a major highway,  chances are it can fetch a higher price even before you fix its leaking roof and paint its walls.

Upcoming urban development projects in the area where the property is located can also boost its profitability and marketability. People would naturally relocate to places that can offer them great living arrangements, thus, it would be wise to invest in houses located in such areas.

Many people venture into real estate for the financial gain,  millions have been and will be made from this lucrative investment field.  Take advantage of the perks,  jump in and learn the ropes and watch your RE business take off!

3 Easy Selling Tips

It is no hidden truth that selling a property is not always an easy task; houses even in the best areas can stay there for months or years.  This market offers great opportunities, so home buyers can have their pick; it is the seller who has to work hard to make a sale. One should keep in mind the sooner you sell your property the better profit you make. Using real estate comps to determine your price is a no-brainer.  But, here are a few tips on how to sell your property quickly you may not have thought of.

Price competitively
Price is the biggest factor that decides the final sale, even if the prospective buyer falls in love and the location suits him. Keep the price right if you want to sell it fast in this sluggish economy. Also, make sure that your property is priced a bit lower than other comparable houses in the area. While pricing, keep in mind you are competing with foreclosure and you may also want to give incentives such as closing costs, a decorative and appliance allowance and more.

Try a Home Auction
Having an auction of your home can be good option if you want to sell your house fast instead of waiting for months for buyers to come along. You can opt for online home auctions services offered by eBay home auctions or other services.

These above mentioned tips are easy options to use when you want to get a property sold and get it sold fast.  I encourage you to take a moment to put them into play in the game of real estate investing and get your business on the winning team!

Hard Money Investing! Part 2

When the inventory of properties for sale increases a buyer’s market has been created.  Using real estate comps to prepare yourself to make purchases is key to your deal being profitable in this type of market.   

Without investors purchasing these deals, the banks inventory would be substantially greater than it is.  The increasing number of deals being facilitated by private lenders has enabled banks to cut losses and get out of the property management business.   Many markets have already begun to experience price increases on a calendar month to month basis, and while not as substantial as in prior years, it’s definitely a positive sign for us all.

Many investors have turned to private money lenders as a result of banks and conventional lenders having a lack of lending programs in place for acquisition of non-owner occupied property.  While on the other end, private lenders have filled the void by developing aggressive loan programs and even, in some cases, loans that extend for up to 4 years enabling an investor to buy a property and use it as a rental property while the property appreciates in value and can be resold for a profit.  These types of deals enable the investor to have an investment strategy with greater potential for profit and lower risk for both investor and funder.

This innovative strategy of using a hard money lenders to invest in real estate has given many investors business’ the financial boost they needed to remain profitable in this market.  I encourage you to take a look at this technique and see if will work for you and your business.

Hard Money Investing!

As real estate markets begin to take root, investors are doing more deals which involve REO, bank owned property, and government agency owned property.    Taking real estate comps information gathered from InvestorComspOnline will give you the tools to value the property prior to acquisition.  I wanted to talk about a particular type of financial access investors are using to make these deals happen fast, private hard money lenders.  Real estate investor deals for these REO properties can be funded by these type of lenders, lenders who offer a short term funding alternative, from which an investor can utilize to purchase investment deals.

Investors are using a variety of exit strategies but the most common involves purchasing property and selling to a homebuyer at a profit within a short term.  Generally the property is placed on the market using the multiple listing service and then resold to a homebuyer at a retail price within reason to a lesser extent than the market value of the property.

Taking notice of the new strategies that are being used and jumping on board with them can propel your business to the top.  Tomorrow I want to continue talking about hard money lending and how it can help you rehab, rent and/or resell investment properties.

RE Comps, Making Them Work For You!

In real estate investing, your profits are determined on how you buy the property. Not so much on how much you sell it for. Running the real estate comps is a key to your success. You must know what the property is worth fixed up, as well as what properties are selling for compared to your subject property in today’s market. In today’s marke,t comps are handled a little differently than how they were back in 2005-2006.  Your InvestorCompsOnline account is a reliable source for all the comparables information you need.

When comparing a property always make sure to take note of the square feet, bedrooms, and bathrooms. If your wholesaling, all if not most of your buyers will be cash investors. So you need to find out what the properties are selling for cash, near the subject area. Don’t go comparing apples to oranges now. Instead compare that 3 bed 2 bath 1400 sq ft to a similar house sold recently cash. Look at the properties that sold in the past 3-6 months max.

Okay guys,  Please keep this information in mind when you are researching and partaking in real estate transactions.  I truly believe information is power  and it empowers you to excel!  Get ready to take your business to the next level!

Becoming a real estate investor can help you earn huge profits, regardless of the current financial crisis.  Taking advantage of real estate comps to price your property competitively is they way to play the game.   Let’s take a look at some perks of real estate investing and what makes properties profitable.

Real Estate Investing (REI) is more advantageous than, let’s say, buying stocks.  As we all know, stock prices are volatile and they go up and down almost everyday.  With REI, however, you don’t have to be afraid of losing all your investment capital in one day as real estate prices are relatively stable, unlike stock prices.

Another perk of REI is that you can get access to a continuous source of income. Instead of selling a house that you have rehabbed, you can find tenants for the property. This way you can collect rental income every month. And if you put additional amenities into the property, you can collect higher rent.

However, to succeed in the REI business, you have to make sure that all the properties you will invest in will bring you big profits.  So what makes a property profitable? The first answer would be its location. If the property is located in the best school district in a city or county, and close to a major highway,  chances are it can fetch a higher price even before you fix its leaking roof and paint its walls.

Upcoming urban development projects in the area where the property is located can also boost its profitability and marketability. People would naturally relocate to places that can offer them great living arrangements, thus, it would be wise to invest in houses located in such areas.

Many people venture into real estate for the financial gain,  millions have been and will be made from this lucrative investment field.  Take advantage of the perks,  jump in and learn the ropes and watch your RE business take off!

3 Easy Selling Tips

It is no hidden truth that selling a property is not always an easy task; houses even in the best areas can stay there for months or years.  This market offers great opportunities, so home buyers can have their pick; it is the seller who has to work hard to make a sale. One should keep in mind the sooner you sell your property the better profit you make. Using real estate comps to determine your price is a no-brainer.  But, here are a few tips on how to sell your property quickly you may not have thought of.

Price competitively
Price is the biggest factor that decides the final sale, even if the prospective buyer falls in love and the location suits him. Keep the price right if you want to sell it fast in this sluggish economy. Also, make sure that your property is priced a bit lower than other comparable houses in the area. While pricing, keep in mind you are competing with foreclosure and you may also want to give incentives such as closing costs, a decorative and appliance allowance and more.

Try a Home Auction
Having an auction of your home can be good option if you want to sell your house fast instead of waiting for months for buyers to come along. You can opt for online home auctions services offered by eBay home auctions or other services.

These above mentioned tips are easy options to use when you want to get a property sold and get it sold fast.  I encourage you to take a moment to put them into play in the game of real estate investing and get your business on the winning team!

Hard Money Investing! Part 2

When the inventory of properties for sale increases a buyer’s market has been created.  Using real estate comps to prepare yourself to make purchases is key to your deal being profitable in this type of market.   

Without investors purchasing these deals, the banks inventory would be substantially greater than it is.  The increasing number of deals being facilitated by private lenders has enabled banks to cut losses and get out of the property management business.   Many markets have already begun to experience price increases on a calendar month to month basis, and while not as substantial as in prior years, it’s definitely a positive sign for us all.

Many investors have turned to private money lenders as a result of banks and conventional lenders having a lack of lending programs in place for acquisition of non-owner occupied property.  While on the other end, private lenders have filled the void by developing aggressive loan programs and even, in some cases, loans that extend for up to 4 years enabling an investor to buy a property and use it as a rental property while the property appreciates in value and can be resold for a profit.  These types of deals enable the investor to have an investment strategy with greater potential for profit and lower risk for both investor and funder.

This innovative strategy of using a hard money lenders to invest in real estate has given many investors business’ the financial boost they needed to remain profitable in this market.  I encourage you to take a look at this technique and see if will work for you and your business.

Hard Money Investing!

As real estate markets begin to take root, investors are doing more deals which involve REO, bank owned property, and government agency owned property.    Taking real estate comps information gathered from InvestorComspOnline will give you the tools to value the property prior to acquisition.  I wanted to talk about a particular type of financial access investors are using to make these deals happen fast, private hard money lenders.  Real estate investor deals for these REO properties can be funded by these type of lenders, lenders who offer a short term funding alternative, from which an investor can utilize to purchase investment deals.

Investors are using a variety of exit strategies but the most common involves purchasing property and selling to a homebuyer at a profit within a short term.  Generally the property is placed on the market using the multiple listing service and then resold to a homebuyer at a retail price within reason to a lesser extent than the market value of the property.

Taking notice of the new strategies that are being used and jumping on board with them can propel your business to the top.  Tomorrow I want to continue talking about hard money lending and how it can help you rehab, rent and/or resell investment properties.

RE Comps, Making Them Work For You!

In real estate investing, your profits are determined on how you buy the property. Not so much on how much you sell it for. Running the real estate comps is a key to your success. You must know what the property is worth fixed up, as well as what properties are selling for compared to your subject property in today’s market. In today’s marke,t comps are handled a little differently than how they were back in 2005-2006.  Your InvestorCompsOnline account is a reliable source for all the comparables information you need.

When comparing a property always make sure to take note of the square feet, bedrooms, and bathrooms. If your wholesaling, all if not most of your buyers will be cash investors. So you need to find out what the properties are selling for cash, near the subject area. Don’t go comparing apples to oranges now. Instead compare that 3 bed 2 bath 1400 sq ft to a similar house sold recently cash. Look at the properties that sold in the past 3-6 months max.

Okay guys,  Please keep this information in mind when you are researching and partaking in real estate transactions.  I truly believe information is power  and it empowers you to excel!  Get ready to take your business to the next level!

Becoming a real estate investor can help you earn huge profits, regardless of the current financial crisis.  Taking advantage of real estate comps to price your property competitively is they way to play the game.   Let’s take a look at some perks of real estate investing and what makes properties profitable.

Real Estate Investing (REI) is more advantageous than, let’s say, buying stocks.  As we all know, stock prices are volatile and they go up and down almost everyday.  With REI, however, you don’t have to be afraid of losing all your investment capital in one day as real estate prices are relatively stable, unlike stock prices.

Another perk of REI is that you can get access to a continuous source of income. Instead of selling a house that you have rehabbed, you can find tenants for the property. This way you can collect rental income every month. And if you put additional amenities into the property, you can collect higher rent.

However, to succeed in the REI business, you have to make sure that all the properties you will invest in will bring you big profits.  So what makes a property profitable? The first answer would be its location. If the property is located in the best school district in a city or county, and close to a major highway,  chances are it can fetch a higher price even before you fix its leaking roof and paint its walls.

Upcoming urban development projects in the area where the property is located can also boost its profitability and marketability. People would naturally relocate to places that can offer them great living arrangements, thus, it would be wise to invest in houses located in such areas.

Many people venture into real estate for the financial gain,  millions have been and will be made from this lucrative investment field.  Take advantage of the perks,  jump in and learn the ropes and watch your RE business take off!

3 Easy Selling Tips

It is no hidden truth that selling a property is not always an easy task; houses even in the best areas can stay there for months or years.  This market offers great opportunities, so home buyers can have their pick; it is the seller who has to work hard to make a sale. One should keep in mind the sooner you sell your property the better profit you make. Using real estate comps to determine your price is a no-brainer.  But, here are a few tips on how to sell your property quickly you may not have thought of.

Price competitively
Price is the biggest factor that decides the final sale, even if the prospective buyer falls in love and the location suits him. Keep the price right if you want to sell it fast in this sluggish economy. Also, make sure that your property is priced a bit lower than other comparable houses in the area. While pricing, keep in mind you are competing with foreclosure and you may also want to give incentives such as closing costs, a decorative and appliance allowance and more.

Try a Home Auction
Having an auction of your home can be good option if you want to sell your house fast instead of waiting for months for buyers to come along. You can opt for online home auctions services offered by eBay home auctions or other services.

These above mentioned tips are easy options to use when you want to get a property sold and get it sold fast.  I encourage you to take a moment to put them into play in the game of real estate investing and get your business on the winning team!

Hard Money Investing! Part 2

When the inventory of properties for sale increases a buyer’s market has been created.  Using real estate comps to prepare yourself to make purchases is key to your deal being profitable in this type of market.   

Without investors purchasing these deals, the banks inventory would be substantially greater than it is.  The increasing number of deals being facilitated by private lenders has enabled banks to cut losses and get out of the property management business.   Many markets have already begun to experience price increases on a calendar month to month basis, and while not as substantial as in prior years, it’s definitely a positive sign for us all.

Many investors have turned to private money lenders as a result of banks and conventional lenders having a lack of lending programs in place for acquisition of non-owner occupied property.  While on the other end, private lenders have filled the void by developing aggressive loan programs and even, in some cases, loans that extend for up to 4 years enabling an investor to buy a property and use it as a rental property while the property appreciates in value and can be resold for a profit.  These types of deals enable the investor to have an investment strategy with greater potential for profit and lower risk for both investor and funder.

This innovative strategy of using a hard money lenders to invest in real estate has given many investors business’ the financial boost they needed to remain profitable in this market.  I encourage you to take a look at this technique and see if will work for you and your business.

Hard Money Investing!

As real estate markets begin to take root, investors are doing more deals which involve REO, bank owned property, and government agency owned property.    Taking real estate comps information gathered from InvestorComspOnline will give you the tools to value the property prior to acquisition.  I wanted to talk about a particular type of financial access investors are using to make these deals happen fast, private hard money lenders.  Real estate investor deals for these REO properties can be funded by these type of lenders, lenders who offer a short term funding alternative, from which an investor can utilize to purchase investment deals.

Investors are using a variety of exit strategies but the most common involves purchasing property and selling to a homebuyer at a profit within a short term.  Generally the property is placed on the market using the multiple listing service and then resold to a homebuyer at a retail price within reason to a lesser extent than the market value of the property.

Taking notice of the new strategies that are being used and jumping on board with them can propel your business to the top.  Tomorrow I want to continue talking about hard money lending and how it can help you rehab, rent and/or resell investment properties.

RE Comps, Making Them Work For You!

In real estate investing, your profits are determined on how you buy the property. Not so much on how much you sell it for. Running the real estate comps is a key to your success. You must know what the property is worth fixed up, as well as what properties are selling for compared to your subject property in today’s market. In today’s marke,t comps are handled a little differently than how they were back in 2005-2006.  Your InvestorCompsOnline account is a reliable source for all the comparables information you need.

When comparing a property always make sure to take note of the square feet, bedrooms, and bathrooms. If your wholesaling, all if not most of your buyers will be cash investors. So you need to find out what the properties are selling for cash, near the subject area. Don’t go comparing apples to oranges now. Instead compare that 3 bed 2 bath 1400 sq ft to a similar house sold recently cash. Look at the properties that sold in the past 3-6 months max.

Okay guys,  Please keep this information in mind when you are researching and partaking in real estate transactions.  I truly believe information is power  and it empowers you to excel!  Get ready to take your business to the next level!

Becoming a real estate investor can help you earn huge profits, regardless of the current financial crisis.  Taking advantage of real estate comps to price your property competitively is they way to play the game.   Let’s take a look at some perks of real estate investing and what makes properties profitable.

Real Estate Investing (REI) is more advantageous than, let’s say, buying stocks.  As we all know, stock prices are volatile and they go up and down almost everyday.  With REI, however, you don’t have to be afraid of losing all your investment capital in one day as real estate prices are relatively stable, unlike stock prices.

Another perk of REI is that you can get access to a continuous source of income. Instead of selling a house that you have rehabbed, you can find tenants for the property. This way you can collect rental income every month. And if you put additional amenities into the property, you can collect higher rent.

However, to succeed in the REI business, you have to make sure that all the properties you will invest in will bring you big profits.  So what makes a property profitable? The first answer would be its location. If the property is located in the best school district in a city or county, and close to a major highway,  chances are it can fetch a higher price even before you fix its leaking roof and paint its walls.

Upcoming urban development projects in the area where the property is located can also boost its profitability and marketability. People would naturally relocate to places that can offer them great living arrangements, thus, it would be wise to invest in houses located in such areas.

Many people venture into real estate for the financial gain,  millions have been and will be made from this lucrative investment field.  Take advantage of the perks,  jump in and learn the ropes and watch your RE business take off!

3 Easy Selling Tips

It is no hidden truth that selling a property is not always an easy task; houses even in the best areas can stay there for months or years.  This market offers great opportunities, so home buyers can have their pick; it is the seller who has to work hard to make a sale. One should keep in mind the sooner you sell your property the better profit you make. Using real estate comps to determine your price is a no-brainer.  But, here are a few tips on how to sell your property quickly you may not have thought of.

Price competitively
Price is the biggest factor that decides the final sale, even if the prospective buyer falls in love and the location suits him. Keep the price right if you want to sell it fast in this sluggish economy. Also, make sure that your property is priced a bit lower than other comparable houses in the area. While pricing, keep in mind you are competing with foreclosure and you may also want to give incentives such as closing costs, a decorative and appliance allowance and more.

Try a Home Auction
Having an auction of your home can be good option if you want to sell your house fast instead of waiting for months for buyers to come along. You can opt for online home auctions services offered by eBay home auctions or other services.

These above mentioned tips are easy options to use when you want to get a property sold and get it sold fast.  I encourage you to take a moment to put them into play in the game of real estate investing and get your business on the winning team!

Hard Money Investing! Part 2

When the inventory of properties for sale increases a buyer’s market has been created.  Using real estate comps to prepare yourself to make purchases is key to your deal being profitable in this type of market.   

Without investors purchasing these deals, the banks inventory would be substantially greater than it is.  The increasing number of deals being facilitated by private lenders has enabled banks to cut losses and get out of the property management business.   Many markets have already begun to experience price increases on a calendar month to month basis, and while not as substantial as in prior years, it’s definitely a positive sign for us all.

Many investors have turned to private money lenders as a result of banks and conventional lenders having a lack of lending programs in place for acquisition of non-owner occupied property.  While on the other end, private lenders have filled the void by developing aggressive loan programs and even, in some cases, loans that extend for up to 4 years enabling an investor to buy a property and use it as a rental property while the property appreciates in value and can be resold for a profit.  These types of deals enable the investor to have an investment strategy with greater potential for profit and lower risk for both investor and funder.

This innovative strategy of using a hard money lenders to invest in real estate has given many investors business’ the financial boost they needed to remain profitable in this market.  I encourage you to take a look at this technique and see if will work for you and your business.

Hard Money Investing!

As real estate markets begin to take root, investors are doing more deals which involve REO, bank owned property, and government agency owned property.    Taking real estate comps information gathered from InvestorComspOnline will give you the tools to value the property prior to acquisition.  I wanted to talk about a particular type of financial access investors are using to make these deals happen fast, private hard money lenders.  Real estate investor deals for these REO properties can be funded by these type of lenders, lenders who offer a short term funding alternative, from which an investor can utilize to purchase investment deals.

Investors are using a variety of exit strategies but the most common involves purchasing property and selling to a homebuyer at a profit within a short term.  Generally the property is placed on the market using the multiple listing service and then resold to a homebuyer at a retail price within reason to a lesser extent than the market value of the property.

Taking notice of the new strategies that are being used and jumping on board with them can propel your business to the top.  Tomorrow I want to continue talking about hard money lending and how it can help you rehab, rent and/or resell investment properties.

RE Comps, Making Them Work For You!

In real estate investing, your profits are determined on how you buy the property. Not so much on how much you sell it for. Running the real estate comps is a key to your success. You must know what the property is worth fixed up, as well as what properties are selling for compared to your subject property in today’s market. In today’s marke,t comps are handled a little differently than how they were back in 2005-2006.  Your InvestorCompsOnline account is a reliable source for all the comparables information you need.

When comparing a property always make sure to take note of the square feet, bedrooms, and bathrooms. If your wholesaling, all if not most of your buyers will be cash investors. So you need to find out what the properties are selling for cash, near the subject area. Don’t go comparing apples to oranges now. Instead compare that 3 bed 2 bath 1400 sq ft to a similar house sold recently cash. Look at the properties that sold in the past 3-6 months max.

Okay guys,  Please keep this information in mind when you are researching and partaking in real estate transactions.  I truly believe information is power  and it empowers you to excel!  Get ready to take your business to the next level!

Becoming a real estate investor can help you earn huge profits, regardless of the current financial crisis.  Taking advantage of real estate comps to price your property competitively is they way to play the game.   Let’s take a look at some perks of real estate investing and what makes properties profitable.

Real Estate Investing (REI) is more advantageous than, let’s say, buying stocks.  As we all know, stock prices are volatile and they go up and down almost everyday.  With REI, however, you don’t have to be afraid of losing all your investment capital in one day as real estate prices are relatively stable, unlike stock prices.

Another perk of REI is that you can get access to a continuous source of income. Instead of selling a house that you have rehabbed, you can find tenants for the property. This way you can collect rental income every month. And if you put additional amenities into the property, you can collect higher rent.

However, to succeed in the REI business, you have to make sure that all the properties you will invest in will bring you big profits.  So what makes a property profitable? The first answer would be its location. If the property is located in the best school district in a city or county, and close to a major highway,  chances are it can fetch a higher price even before you fix its leaking roof and paint its walls.

Upcoming urban development projects in the area where the property is located can also boost its profitability and marketability. People would naturally relocate to places that can offer them great living arrangements, thus, it would be wise to invest in houses located in such areas.

Many people venture into real estate for the financial gain,  millions have been and will be made from this lucrative investment field.  Take advantage of the perks,  jump in and learn the ropes and watch your RE business take off!

3 Easy Selling Tips

It is no hidden truth that selling a property is not always an easy task; houses even in the best areas can stay there for months or years.  This market offers great opportunities, so home buyers can have their pick; it is the seller who has to work hard to make a sale. One should keep in mind the sooner you sell your property the better profit you make. Using real estate comps to determine your price is a no-brainer.  But, here are a few tips on how to sell your property quickly you may not have thought of.

Price competitively
Price is the biggest factor that decides the final sale, even if the prospective buyer falls in love and the location suits him. Keep the price right if you want to sell it fast in this sluggish economy. Also, make sure that your property is priced a bit lower than other comparable houses in the area. While pricing, keep in mind you are competing with foreclosure and you may also want to give incentives such as closing costs, a decorative and appliance allowance and more.

Try a Home Auction
Having an auction of your home can be good option if you want to sell your house fast instead of waiting for months for buyers to come along. You can opt for online home auctions services offered by eBay home auctions or other services.

These above mentioned tips are easy options to use when you want to get a property sold and get it sold fast.  I encourage you to take a moment to put them into play in the game of real estate investing and get your business on the winning team!

Hard Money Investing! Part 2

When the inventory of properties for sale increases a buyer’s market has been created.  Using real estate comps to prepare yourself to make purchases is key to your deal being profitable in this type of market.   

Without investors purchasing these deals, the banks inventory would be substantially greater than it is.  The increasing number of deals being facilitated by private lenders has enabled banks to cut losses and get out of the property management business.   Many markets have already begun to experience price increases on a calendar month to month basis, and while not as substantial as in prior years, it’s definitely a positive sign for us all.

Many investors have turned to private money lenders as a result of banks and conventional lenders having a lack of lending programs in place for acquisition of non-owner occupied property.  While on the other end, private lenders have filled the void by developing aggressive loan programs and even, in some cases, loans that extend for up to 4 years enabling an investor to buy a property and use it as a rental property while the property appreciates in value and can be resold for a profit.  These types of deals enable the investor to have an investment strategy with greater potential for profit and lower risk for both investor and funder.

This innovative strategy of using a hard money lenders to invest in real estate has given many investors business’ the financial boost they needed to remain profitable in this market.  I encourage you to take a look at this technique and see if will work for you and your business.

Hard Money Investing!

As real estate markets begin to take root, investors are doing more deals which involve REO, bank owned property, and government agency owned property.    Taking real estate comps information gathered from InvestorComspOnline will give you the tools to value the property prior to acquisition.  I wanted to talk about a particular type of financial access investors are using to make these deals happen fast, private hard money lenders.  Real estate investor deals for these REO properties can be funded by these type of lenders, lenders who offer a short term funding alternative, from which an investor can utilize to purchase investment deals.

Investors are using a variety of exit strategies but the most common involves purchasing property and selling to a homebuyer at a profit within a short term.  Generally the property is placed on the market using the multiple listing service and then resold to a homebuyer at a retail price within reason to a lesser extent than the market value of the property.

Taking notice of the new strategies that are being used and jumping on board with them can propel your business to the top.  Tomorrow I want to continue talking about hard money lending and how it can help you rehab, rent and/or resell investment properties.

RE Comps, Making Them Work For You!

In real estate investing, your profits are determined on how you buy the property. Not so much on how much you sell it for. Running the real estate comps is a key to your success. You must know what the property is worth fixed up, as well as what properties are selling for compared to your subject property in today’s market. In today’s marke,t comps are handled a little differently than how they were back in 2005-2006.  Your InvestorCompsOnline account is a reliable source for all the comparables information you need.

When comparing a property always make sure to take note of the square feet, bedrooms, and bathrooms. If your wholesaling, all if not most of your buyers will be cash investors. So you need to find out what the properties are selling for cash, near the subject area. Don’t go comparing apples to oranges now. Instead compare that 3 bed 2 bath 1400 sq ft to a similar house sold recently cash. Look at the properties that sold in the past 3-6 months max.

Okay guys,  Please keep this information in mind when you are researching and partaking in real estate transactions.  I truly believe information is power  and it empowers you to excel!  Get ready to take your business to the next level!

Becoming a real estate investor can help you earn huge profits, regardless of the current financial crisis.  Taking advantage of real estate comps to price your property competitively is they way to play the game.   Let’s take a look at some perks of real estate investing and what makes properties profitable.

Real Estate Investing (REI) is more advantageous than, let’s say, buying stocks.  As we all know, stock prices are volatile and they go up and down almost everyday.  With REI, however, you don’t have to be afraid of losing all your investment capital in one day as real estate prices are relatively stable, unlike stock prices.

Another perk of REI is that you can get access to a continuous source of income. Instead of selling a house that you have rehabbed, you can find tenants for the property. This way you can collect rental income every month. And if you put additional amenities into the property, you can collect higher rent.

However, to succeed in the REI business, you have to make sure that all the properties you will invest in will bring you big profits.  So what makes a property profitable? The first answer would be its location. If the property is located in the best school district in a city or county, and close to a major highway,  chances are it can fetch a higher price even before you fix its leaking roof and paint its walls.

Upcoming urban development projects in the area where the property is located can also boost its profitability and marketability. People would naturally relocate to places that can offer them great living arrangements, thus, it would be wise to invest in houses located in such areas.

Many people venture into real estate for the financial gain,  millions have been and will be made from this lucrative investment field.  Take advantage of the perks,  jump in and learn the ropes and watch your RE business take off!

3 Easy Selling Tips

It is no hidden truth that selling a property is not always an easy task; houses even in the best areas can stay there for months or years.  This market offers great opportunities, so home buyers can have their pick; it is the seller who has to work hard to make a sale. One should keep in mind the sooner you sell your property the better profit you make. Using real estate comps to determine your price is a no-brainer.  But, here are a few tips on how to sell your property quickly you may not have thought of.

Price competitively
Price is the biggest factor that decides the final sale, even if the prospective buyer falls in love and the location suits him. Keep the price right if you want to sell it fast in this sluggish economy. Also, make sure that your property is priced a bit lower than other comparable houses in the area. While pricing, keep in mind you are competing with foreclosure and you may also want to give incentives such as closing costs, a decorative and appliance allowance and more.

Try a Home Auction
Having an auction of your home can be good option if you want to sell your house fast instead of waiting for months for buyers to come along. You can opt for online home auctions services offered by eBay home auctions or other services.

These above mentioned tips are easy options to use when you want to get a property sold and get it sold fast.  I encourage you to take a moment to put them into play in the game of real estate investing and get your business on the winning team!

Hard Money Investing! Part 2

When the inventory of properties for sale increases a buyer’s market has been created.  Using real estate comps to prepare yourself to make purchases is key to your deal being profitable in this type of market.   

Without investors purchasing these deals, the banks inventory would be substantially greater than it is.  The increasing number of deals being facilitated by private lenders has enabled banks to cut losses and get out of the property management business.   Many markets have already begun to experience price increases on a calendar month to month basis, and while not as substantial as in prior years, it’s definitely a positive sign for us all.

Many investors have turned to private money lenders as a result of banks and conventional lenders having a lack of lending programs in place for acquisition of non-owner occupied property.  While on the other end, private lenders have filled the void by developing aggressive loan programs and even, in some cases, loans that extend for up to 4 years enabling an investor to buy a property and use it as a rental property while the property appreciates in value and can be resold for a profit.  These types of deals enable the investor to have an investment strategy with greater potential for profit and lower risk for both investor and funder.

This innovative strategy of using a hard money lenders to invest in real estate has given many investors business’ the financial boost they needed to remain profitable in this market.  I encourage you to take a look at this technique and see if will work for you and your business.

Hard Money Investing!

As real estate markets begin to take root, investors are doing more deals which involve REO, bank owned property, and government agency owned property.    Taking real estate comps information gathered from InvestorComspOnline will give you the tools to value the property prior to acquisition.  I wanted to talk about a particular type of financial access investors are using to make these deals happen fast, private hard money lenders.  Real estate investor deals for these REO properties can be funded by these type of lenders, lenders who offer a short term funding alternative, from which an investor can utilize to purchase investment deals.

Investors are using a variety of exit strategies but the most common involves purchasing property and selling to a homebuyer at a profit within a short term.  Generally the property is placed on the market using the multiple listing service and then resold to a homebuyer at a retail price within reason to a lesser extent than the market value of the property.

Taking notice of the new strategies that are being used and jumping on board with them can propel your business to the top.  Tomorrow I want to continue talking about hard money lending and how it can help you rehab, rent and/or resell investment properties.

RE Comps, Making Them Work For You!

In real estate investing, your profits are determined on how you buy the property. Not so much on how much you sell it for. Running the real estate comps is a key to your success. You must know what the property is worth fixed up, as well as what properties are selling for compared to your subject property in today’s market. In today’s marke,t comps are handled a little differently than how they were back in 2005-2006.  Your InvestorCompsOnline account is a reliable source for all the comparables information you need.

When comparing a property always make sure to take note of the square feet, bedrooms, and bathrooms. If your wholesaling, all if not most of your buyers will be cash investors. So you need to find out what the properties are selling for cash, near the subject area. Don’t go comparing apples to oranges now. Instead compare that 3 bed 2 bath 1400 sq ft to a similar house sold recently cash. Look at the properties that sold in the past 3-6 months max.

Okay guys,  Please keep this information in mind when you are researching and partaking in real estate transactions.  I truly believe information is power  and it empowers you to excel!  Get ready to take your business to the next level!
