Purchasing Investment Property

Buying-Your-First-Investment-Property-15Investment property is an age old stream of passive income.  The past few years have seen a lot of people investing in properties, which are slowly beginning to yield results in terms of income. However, if you have not invested in any kind of real estate, it’s time to take some good real estate comps and use the following principles of purchasing investment property.

First, it is important to understand that where the property is located can affect the price. In order to try and avoid higher payments for property, it is important to develop a network, which will help you understand the market and ensure that you pay the right price. An ideal network is one that comprises of builders, realtors, attorneys, other investors and local real estate professionals. These are people well versed in the field of investment property and can guide you in making the right investment

Personal finances are also important to consider before investing in real estate properties. It is imperative that you are sure of the kind of money required as well as the amount in hand or available at short notice, before you finalize a property.

Lastly, maintenance of the property should be taken into account. Even low maintenance property requires someone to be in constant touch with the tenants to ensure that there are no problems. You can either handle maintenance issues on your own, or can hand it over to a property management company for a certain fee. The cost of the fee should be considered as expense while calculating the final cash flow.

These tips should be helpful in serving as a stepping stone into your research and journey of real estate investing.

The Buyer Benefits

attention-first-time-buyersWhen the bank is repossessing a property, it is commonly referred to as foreclosure.  There are many pros when working with these types of properties.  Foreclosures are often in decent condition and a few repairs will get it in shape to sell.

The benefits with this type of purchase are great. The price that you pay for the house or property will be greatly reduced from real estate comps given for properties in the area. Most individuals that find themselves faced with foreclosure have no way to get out of the situation, and would rather sell and not make a profit, then to face the repercussions that can result in foreclosure. This gives you the benefit of negotiating directly with them. There isn’t a real estate agent, just you and the owner. When making an offer on a property in foreclosure it is less likely the owner will turn it down.

You can of course, buy a foreclosed property from the bank. At this point in the process the bank is looking to recoup some if its losses and you will more than likely pay more for the property. It is in your best interest to deal with a property before it is officially foreclosed. The owner is desperate to be out of this situation, possibly looking to make a small profit just to be able to move on.  While it may be a desperate time for the owner, it is a win-win situation for you as a buyer.

There is no question that the overflow of foreclosed properties has presented a unique opportunity for anyone interested in making money in the real estate market. Be sure to educate yourself, and you can learn to buy and flip houses for a quick profit.

The Foreclosure Market

imagesForeclosure investments involve the purchase of foreclosed homes, which are in good condition, and selling them for profitable returns. The challenge isn’t only in finding foreclosed homes, but in doing it in a way that you have a buyer nearby. Otherwise, investing in foreclosed homes could cost you a lot instead of letting you gain money.  Here are some things to consider when working with foreclosures.

If the house has damages that need to be repaired, it may take you quite some time to have everything fixed. It’s important to be realistic about your project timeline and how it will affect your budget on other projects. Finding foreclosed properties that you can use as rental properties is beneficial as you can use that income to fund other projects. This is what many real estate investors are doing.

So, where is the best place to find foreclosed properties or houses? I’m happy you asked….

The best places to begin your search for foreclosed properties include mortgage companies and local banks. Lending institutions or some financial institutions post their own list of distressed properties. Since these properties cost the bank some money to support them, they are being put on sale.

Another good place to find foreclosed homes for investment is a local real estate auction.

Make sure to educate yourself about all these things and many other of foreclosure investment.  Taking the time to do your research before stepping out into real estate investing will definitely benefit you and your business.

Investment Properties | Part Two

Investment-Properties-and-DoctorsLast time, we discussed investment property and the future of real estate comps and investing.  Today, let’s take a look at what property discounts are out there and where to find the best areas or hot spots.

Finding investment property from property developers with genuine discounts can be a task. It is important to identify whether the discount is genuine or whether the price has been inflated on the property to allow for the discount. To establish whether it is a genuine discount on the investment property by getting real estate comps of other properties that have recently sold and at what price. Just as important, is to establish what the likely rental figure will be for the investment property.  This will determine whether said property is worth the time and effort

If you are looking at property in areas that are experiencing high levels of growth, be prepared to adjust your purchase price accordingly.  Property investors with a long term views on investment property will still see this as a positive action to take for their investment property portfolio in the knowledge that as the regeneration area becomes more developed, the potential rental demand for the investment property will increase.  Taking the time to step back and look at the larger picture is wise and certainly will pay off in the long term.

Investment Properties | Part One

investmentInvestment property continues to be a popular form of investing for the future. When one can use real estate comps to offer a price for a property to benefit their business it is ideal.  Some chose investment property as a way of funding educational fees in the future. Others may chose investment property to help secure a more financial future, fund additional investment property purchases, or they may simply choose investment property as a way of creating passive income so as not solely dependent on their mainstream employment.

Despite recent interest rates going up, the property investment market in the US remains strong. The investment property market has experienced a high level of growth especially over the past few years.  This results in a dramatic increase in investment property and incentives for landlords and investors. These represent significant savings to a property investor buying multiple investment properties and subject to sourcing the best buy to let mortgage products for these investment property deals, can often result in the property investor having the ability to buy an investment property with little or no deposit.

Next time, I want to take a look at what are the property hot spots to take advantage of and how to get discounts once you find them.  Remember take the time to educate yourself in order to make your business grow.

The cost of the fee should be considered as expense while calculating the final cash flow.

The Buyer Benefits

attention-first-time-buyersWhen the bank is repossessing a property, it is commonly referred to as foreclosure.  There are many pros when working with these types of properties.  Foreclosures are often in decent condition and a few repairs will get it in shape to sell.

The benefits with this type of purchase are great. The price that you pay for the house or property will be greatly reduced from real estate comps given for properties in the area. Most individuals that find themselves faced with foreclosure have no way to get out of the situation, and would rather sell and not make a profit, then to face the repercussions that can result in foreclosure. This gives you the benefit of negotiating directly with them. There isn’t a real estate agent, just you and the owner. When making an offer on a property in foreclosure it is less likely the owner will turn it down.

You can of course, buy a foreclosed property from the bank. At this point in the process the bank is looking to recoup some if its losses and you will more than likely pay more for the property. It is in your best interest to deal with a property before it is officially foreclosed. The owner is desperate to be out of this situation, possibly looking to make a small profit just to be able to move on.  While it may be a desperate time for the owner, it is a win-win situation for you as a buyer.

There is no question that the overflow of foreclosed properties has presented a unique opportunity for anyone interested in making money in the real estate market. Be sure to educate yourself, and you can learn to buy and flip houses for a quick profit.

The Foreclosure Market

imagesForeclosure investments involve the purchase of foreclosed homes, which are in good condition, and selling them for profitable returns. The challenge isn’t only in finding foreclosed homes, but in doing it in a way that you have a buyer nearby. Otherwise, investing in foreclosed homes could cost you a lot instead of letting you gain money.  Here are some things to consider when working with foreclosures.

If the house has damages that need to be repaired, it may take you quite some time to have everything fixed. It’s important to be realistic about your project timeline and how it will affect your budget on other projects. Finding foreclosed properties that you can use as rental properties is beneficial as you can use that income to fund other projects. This is what many real estate investors are doing.

So, where is the best place to find foreclosed properties or houses? I’m happy you asked….

The best places to begin your search for foreclosed properties include mortgage companies and local banks. Lending institutions or some financial institutions post their own list of distressed properties. Since these properties cost the bank some money to support them, they are being put on sale.

Another good place to find foreclosed homes for investment is a local real estate auction.

Make sure to educate yourself about all these things and many other of foreclosure investment.  Taking the time to do your research before stepping out into real estate investing will definitely benefit you and your business.

Investment Properties | Part Two

Investment-Properties-and-DoctorsLast time, we discussed investment property and the future of real estate comps and investing.  Today, let’s take a look at what property discounts are out there and where to find the best areas or hot spots.

Finding investment property from property developers with genuine discounts can be a task. It is important to identify whether the discount is genuine or whether the price has been inflated on the property to allow for the discount. To establish whether it is a genuine discount on the investment property by getting real estate comps of other properties that have recently sold and at what price. Just as important, is to establish what the likely rental figure will be for the investment property.  This will determine whether said property is worth the time and effort

If you are looking at property in areas that are experiencing high levels of growth, be prepared to adjust your purchase price accordingly.  Property investors with a long term views on investment property will still see this as a positive action to take for their investment property portfolio in the knowledge that as the regeneration area becomes more developed, the potential rental demand for the investment property will increase.  Taking the time to step back and look at the larger picture is wise and certainly will pay off in the long term.

Investment Properties | Part One

investmentInvestment property continues to be a popular form of investing for the future. When one can use real estate comps to offer a price for a property to benefit their business it is ideal.  Some chose investment property as a way of funding educational fees in the future. Others may chose investment property to help secure a more financial future, fund additional investment property purchases, or they may simply choose investment property as a way of creating passive income so as not solely dependent on their mainstream employment.

Next time, I want to take a look at what are the property hot spots to take advantage of and how to get discounts once you find them.  Remember take the time to educate yourself in order to make your business grow.

You can of course, buy a foreclosed property from the bank. At this point in the process the bank is looking to recoup some if its losses and you will more than likely pay more for the property. It is in your best interest to deal with a property before it is officially foreclosed. The owner is desperate to be out of this situation, possibly looking to make a small profit just to be able to move on.  While it may be a desperate time for the owner, it is a win-win situation for you as a buyer.

There is no question that the overflow of foreclosed properties has presented a unique opportunity for anyone interested in making money in the real estate market. Be sure to educate yourself, and you can learn to buy and flip houses for a quick profit.

The Foreclosure Market

imagesForeclosure investments involve the purchase of foreclosed homes, which are in good condition, and selling them for profitable returns. The challenge isn’t only in finding foreclosed homes, but in doing it in a way that you have a buyer nearby. Otherwise, investing in foreclosed homes could cost you a lot instead of letting you gain money.  Here are some things to consider when working with foreclosures.

If the house has damages that need to be repaired, it may take you quite some time to have everything fixed. It’s important to be realistic about your project timeline and how it will affect your budget on other projects. Finding foreclosed properties that you can use as rental properties is beneficial as you can use that income to fund other projects. This is what many real estate investors are doing.

So, where is the best place to find foreclosed properties or houses? I’m happy you asked….

The best places to begin your search for foreclosed properties include mortgage companies and local banks. Lending institutions or some financial institutions post their own list of distressed properties. Since these properties cost the bank some money to support them, they are being put on sale.

Another good place to find foreclosed homes for investment is a local real estate auction.

Make sure to educate yourself about all these things and many other of foreclosure investment.  Taking the time to do your research before stepping out into real estate investing will definitely benefit you and your business.

Investment Properties | Part Two

Investment-Properties-and-DoctorsLast time, we discussed investment property and the future of real estate comps and investing.  Today, let’s take a look at what property discounts are out there and where to find the best areas or hot spots.

Finding investment property from property developers with genuine discounts can be a task. It is important to identify whether the discount is genuine or whether the price has been inflated on the property to allow for the discount. To establish whether it is a genuine discount on the investment property by getting real estate comps of other properties that have recently sold and at what price. Just as important, is to establish what the likely rental figure will be for the investment property.  This will determine whether said property is worth the time and effort

If you are looking at property in areas that are experiencing high levels of growth, be prepared to adjust your purchase price accordingly.  Property investors with a long term views on investment property will still see this as a positive action to take for their investment property portfolio in the knowledge that as the regeneration area becomes more developed, the potential rental demand for the investment property will increase.  Taking the time to step back and look at the larger picture is wise and certainly will pay off in the long term.

Investment Properties | Part One

investmentInvestment property continues to be a popular form of investing for the future. When one can use real estate comps to offer a price for a property to benefit their business it is ideal.  Some chose investment property as a way of funding educational fees in the future. Others may chose investment property to help secure a more financial future, fund additional investment property purchases, or they may simply choose investment property as a way of creating passive income so as not solely dependent on their mainstream employment.

Purchasing Investment Property

Buying-Your-First-Investment-Property-15Investment property is an age old stream of passive income.  The past few years have seen a lot of people investing in properties, which are slowly beginning to yield results in terms of income. However, if you have not invested in any kind of real estate, it’s time to take some good real estate comps and use the following principles of purchasing investment property.

First, it is important to understand that where the property is located can affect the price. In order to try and avoid higher payments for property, it is important to develop a network, which will help you understand the market and ensure that you pay the right price. An ideal network is one that comprises of builders, realtors, attorneys, other investors and local real estate professionals. These are people well versed in the field of investment property and can guide you in making the right investment

Personal finances are also important to consider before investing in real estate properties. It is imperative that you are sure of the kind of money required as well as the amount in hand or available at short notice, before you finalize a property.

Lastly, maintenance of the property should be taken into account. Even low maintenance property requires someone to be in constant touch with the tenants to ensure that there are no problems. You can either handle maintenance issues on your own, or can hand it over to a property management company for a certain fee. The cost of the fee should be considered as expense while calculating the final cash flow.

These tips should be helpful in serving as a stepping stone into your research and journey of real estate investing.

If the house has damages that need to be repaired, it may take you quite some time to have everything fixed. It’s important to be realistic about your project timeline and how it will affect your budget on other projects. Finding foreclosed properties that you can use as rental properties is beneficial as you can use that income to fund other projects. This is what many real estate investors are doing.

So, where is the best place to find foreclosed properties or houses? I’m happy you asked….

The best places to begin your search for foreclosed properties include mortgage companies and local banks. Lending institutions or some financial institutions post their own list of distressed properties. Since these properties cost the bank some money to support them, they are being put on sale.

Investment Properties | Part Two

Investment-Properties-and-DoctorsLast time, we discussed investment property and the future of real estate comps and investing.  Today, let’s take a look at what property discounts are out there and where to find the best areas or hot spots.

Finding investment property from property developers with genuine discounts can be a task. It is important to identify whether the discount is genuine or whether the price has been inflated on the property to allow for the discount. To establish whether it is a genuine discount on the investment property by getting real estate comps of other properties that have recently sold and at what price. Just as important, is to establish what the likely rental figure will be for the investment property.  This will determine whether said property is worth the time and effort

If you are looking at property in areas that are experiencing high levels of growth, be prepared to adjust your purchase price accordingly.  Property investors with a long term views on investment property will still see this as a positive action to take for their investment property portfolio in the knowledge that as the regeneration area becomes more developed, the potential rental demand for the investment property will increase.  Taking the time to step back and look at the larger picture is wise and certainly will pay off in the long term.

Investment Properties | Part One

When one can use real estate comps to offer a price for a property to benefit their business it is ideal.  Some chose investment property as a way of funding educational fees in the future.

Purchasing Investment Property

Buying-Your-First-Investment-Property-15Investment property is an age old stream of passive income.  The past few years have seen a lot of people investing in properties, which are slowly beginning to yield results in terms of income. However, if you have not invested in any kind of real estate, it’s time to take some good real estate comps and use the following principles of purchasing investment property.

First, it is important to understand that where the property is located can affect the price. In order to try and avoid higher payments for property, it is important to develop a network, which will help you understand the market and ensure that you pay the right price. An ideal network is one that comprises of builders, realtors, attorneys, other investors and local real estate professionals. These are people well versed in the field of investment property and can guide you in making the right investment

Personal finances are also important to consider before investing in real estate properties. It is imperative that you are sure of the kind of money required as well as the amount in hand or available at short notice, before you finalize a property.

Lastly, maintenance of the property should be taken into account. Even low maintenance property requires someone to be in constant touch with the tenants to ensure that there are no problems. You can either handle maintenance issues on your own, or can hand it over to a property management company for a certain fee. The cost of the fee should be considered as expense while calculating the final cash flow.

These tips should be helpful in serving as a stepping stone into your research and journey of real estate investing.

The Buyer Benefits

attention-first-time-buyersWhen the bank is repossessing a property, it is commonly referred to as foreclosure.  There are many pros when working with these types of properties.  Foreclosures are often in decent condition and a few repairs will get it in shape to sell.

The benefits with this type of purchase are great. The price that you pay for the house or property will be greatly reduced from real estate comps given for properties in the area. Most individuals that find themselves faced with foreclosure have no way to get out of the situation, and would rather sell and not make a profit, then to face the repercussions that can result in foreclosure. This gives you the benefit of negotiating directly with them. There isn’t a real estate agent, just you and the owner. When making an offer on a property in foreclosure it is less likely the owner will turn it down.

You can of course, buy a foreclosed property from the bank. At this point in the process the bank is looking to recoup some if its losses and you will more than likely pay more for the property. It is in your best interest to deal with a property before it is officially foreclosed. The owner is desperate to be out of this situation, possibly looking to make a small profit just to be able to move on.  While it may be a desperate time for the owner, it is a win-win situation for you as a buyer.

There is no question that the overflow of foreclosed properties has presented a unique opportunity for anyone interested in making money in the real estate market. Be sure to educate yourself, and you can learn to buy and flip houses for a quick profit.

Investment-Properties-and-DoctorsLast time, we discussed investment property and the future of real estate comps and investing.  Today, let’s take a look at what property discounts are out there and where to find the best areas or hot spots.

Finding investment property from property developers with genuine discounts can be a task. It is important to identify whether the discount is genuine or whether the price has been inflated on the property to allow for the discount. To establish whether it is a genuine discount on the investment property by getting real estate comps of other properties that have recently sold and at what price. Just as important, is to establish what the likely rental figure will be for the investment property.  This will determine whether said property is worth the time and effort

If you are looking at property in areas that are experiencing high levels of growth, be prepared to adjust your purchase price accordingly.  Property investors with a long term views on investment property will still see this as a positive action to take for their investment property portfolio in the knowledge that as the regeneration area becomes more developed, the potential rental demand for the investment property will increase.  Taking the time to step back and look at the larger picture is wise and certainly will pay off in the long term.

Investment Properties | Part One

investmentInvestment property continues to be a popular form of investing for the future. When one can use real estate comps to offer a price for a property to benefit their business it is ideal.  Some chose investment property as a way of funding educational fees in the future. Others may chose investment property to help secure a more financial future, fund additional investment property purchases, or they may simply choose investment property as a way of creating passive income so as not solely dependent on their mainstream employment.

Despite recent interest rates going up, the property investment market in the US remains strong. The investment property market has experienced a high level of growth especially over the past few years.  This results in a dramatic increase in investment property and incentives for landlords and investors.

Purchasing Investment Property

Buying-Your-First-Investment-Property-15Investment property is an age old stream of passive income.  The past few years have seen a lot of people investing in properties, which are slowly beginning to yield results in terms of income. However, if you have not invested in any kind of real estate, it’s time to take some good real estate comps and use the following principles of purchasing investment property.

First, it is important to understand that where the property is located can affect the price. In order to try and avoid higher payments for property, it is important to develop a network, which will help you understand the market and ensure that you pay the right price. An ideal network is one that comprises of builders, realtors, attorneys, other investors and local real estate professionals. These are people well versed in the field of investment property and can guide you in making the right investment

Personal finances are also important to consider before investing in real estate properties. It is imperative that you are sure of the kind of money required as well as the amount in hand or available at short notice, before you finalize a property.

Lastly, maintenance of the property should be taken into account. Even low maintenance property requires someone to be in constant touch with the tenants to ensure that there are no problems. You can either handle maintenance issues on your own, or can hand it over to a property management company for a certain fee. The cost of the fee should be considered as expense while calculating the final cash flow.

These tips should be helpful in serving as a stepping stone into your research and journey of real estate investing.

The Buyer Benefits

attention-first-time-buyersWhen the bank is repossessing a property, it is commonly referred to as foreclosure.  There are many pros when working with these types of properties.  Foreclosures are often in decent condition and a few repairs will get it in shape to sell.

The benefits with this type of purchase are great. The price that you pay for the house or property will be greatly reduced from real estate comps given for properties in the area. Most individuals that find themselves faced with foreclosure have no way to get out of the situation, and would rather sell and not make a profit, then to face the repercussions that can result in foreclosure. This gives you the benefit of negotiating directly with them. There isn’t a real estate agent, just you and the owner. When making an offer on a property in foreclosure it is less likely the owner will turn it down.

You can of course, buy a foreclosed property from the bank. At this point in the process the bank is looking to recoup some if its losses and you will more than likely pay more for the property. It is in your best interest to deal with a property before it is officially foreclosed. The owner is desperate to be out of this situation, possibly looking to make a small profit just to be able to move on.  While it may be a desperate time for the owner, it is a win-win situation for you as a buyer.

There is no question that the overflow of foreclosed properties has presented a unique opportunity for anyone interested in making money in the real estate market. Be sure to educate yourself, and you can learn to buy and flip houses for a quick profit.

The Foreclosure Market

imagesForeclosure investments involve the purchase of foreclosed homes, which are in good condition, and selling them for profitable returns. The challenge isn’t only in finding foreclosed homes, but in doing it in a way that you have a buyer nearby. Otherwise, investing in foreclosed homes could cost you a lot instead of letting you gain money.  Here are some things to consider when working with foreclosures.

If the house has damages that need to be repaired, it may take you quite some time to have everything fixed. It’s important to be realistic about your project timeline and how it will affect your budget on other projects. Finding foreclosed properties that you can use as rental properties is beneficial as you can use that income to fund other projects. This is what many real estate investors are doing.

So, where is the best place to find foreclosed properties or houses? I’m happy you asked….

The best places to begin your search for foreclosed properties include mortgage companies and local banks. Lending institutions or some financial institutions post their own list of distressed properties. Since these properties cost the bank some money to support them, they are being put on sale.

Another good place to find foreclosed homes for investment is a local real estate auction.

Make sure to educate yourself about all these things and many other of foreclosure investment.  Taking the time to do your research before stepping out into real estate investing will definitely benefit you and your business.

investmentInvestment property continues to be a popular form of investing for the future. When one can use real estate comps to offer a price for a property to benefit their business it is ideal.  Some chose investment property as a way of funding educational fees in the future. Others may chose investment property to help secure a more financial future, fund additional investment property purchases, or they may simply choose investment property as a way of creating passive income so as not solely dependent on their mainstream employment.

Despite recent interest rates going up, the property investment market in the US remains strong. The investment property market has experienced a high level of growth especially over the past few years.  This results in a dramatic increase in investment property and incentives for landlords and investors. These represent significant savings to a property investor buying multiple investment properties and subject to sourcing the best buy to let mortgage products for these investment property deals, can often result in the property investor having the ability to buy an investment property with little or no deposit.

Purchasing Investment Property

Buying-Your-First-Investment-Property-15Investment property is an age old stream of passive income.  The past few years have seen a lot of people investing in properties, which are slowly beginning to yield results in terms of income. However, if you have not invested in any kind of real estate, it’s time to take some good real estate comps and use the following principles of purchasing investment property.

First, it is important to understand that where the property is located can affect the price. In order to try and avoid higher payments for property, it is important to develop a network, which will help you understand the market and ensure that you pay the right price. An ideal network is one that comprises of builders, realtors, attorneys, other investors and local real estate professionals. These are people well versed in the field of investment property and can guide you in making the right investment

Personal finances are also important to consider before investing in real estate properties. It is imperative that you are sure of the kind of money required as well as the amount in hand or available at short notice, before you finalize a property.

Lastly, maintenance of the property should be taken into account. Even low maintenance property requires someone to be in constant touch with the tenants to ensure that there are no problems. You can either handle maintenance issues on your own, or can hand it over to a property management company for a certain fee. The cost of the fee should be considered as expense while calculating the final cash flow.

These tips should be helpful in serving as a stepping stone into your research and journey of real estate investing.

The Buyer Benefits

attention-first-time-buyersWhen the bank is repossessing a property, it is commonly referred to as foreclosure.  There are many pros when working with these types of properties.  Foreclosures are often in decent condition and a few repairs will get it in shape to sell.

The benefits with this type of purchase are great. The price that you pay for the house or property will be greatly reduced from real estate comps given for properties in the area. Most individuals that find themselves faced with foreclosure have no way to get out of the situation, and would rather sell and not make a profit, then to face the repercussions that can result in foreclosure. This gives you the benefit of negotiating directly with them. There isn’t a real estate agent, just you and the owner. When making an offer on a property in foreclosure it is less likely the owner will turn it down.

You can of course, buy a foreclosed property from the bank. At this point in the process the bank is looking to recoup some if its losses and you will more than likely pay more for the property. It is in your best interest to deal with a property before it is officially foreclosed. The owner is desperate to be out of this situation, possibly looking to make a small profit just to be able to move on.  While it may be a desperate time for the owner, it is a win-win situation for you as a buyer.

There is no question that the overflow of foreclosed properties has presented a unique opportunity for anyone interested in making money in the real estate market. Be sure to educate yourself, and you can learn to buy and flip houses for a quick profit.

The Foreclosure Market

imagesForeclosure investments involve the purchase of foreclosed homes, which are in good condition, and selling them for profitable returns. The challenge isn’t only in finding foreclosed homes, but in doing it in a way that you have a buyer nearby. Otherwise, investing in foreclosed homes could cost you a lot instead of letting you gain money.  Here are some things to consider when working with foreclosures.

If the house has damages that need to be repaired, it may take you quite some time to have everything fixed. It’s important to be realistic about your project timeline and how it will affect your budget on other projects. Finding foreclosed properties that you can use as rental properties is beneficial as you can use that income to fund other projects. This is what many real estate investors are doing.

So, where is the best place to find foreclosed properties or houses? I’m happy you asked….

The best places to begin your search for foreclosed properties include mortgage companies and local banks. Lending institutions or some financial institutions post their own list of distressed properties. Since these properties cost the bank some money to support them, they are being put on sale.

Another good place to find foreclosed homes for investment is a local real estate auction.

Make sure to educate yourself about all these things and many other of foreclosure investment.  Taking the time to do your research before stepping out into real estate investing will definitely benefit you and your business.

Purchasing Investment Property

Buying-Your-First-Investment-Property-15Investment property is an age old stream of passive income.  The past few years have seen a lot of people investing in properties, which are slowly beginning to yield results in terms of income. However, if you have not invested in any kind of real estate, it’s time to take some good real estate comps and use the following principles of purchasing investment property.

First, it is important to understand that where the property is located can affect the price. In order to try and avoid higher payments for property, it is important to develop a network, which will help you understand the market and ensure that you pay the right price. An ideal network is one that comprises of builders, realtors, attorneys, other investors and local real estate professionals. These are people well versed in the field of investment property and can guide you in making the right investment

Personal finances are also important to consider before investing in real estate properties. It is imperative that you are sure of the kind of money required as well as the amount in hand or available at short notice, before you finalize a property.

Lastly, maintenance of the property should be taken into account. Even low maintenance property requires someone to be in constant touch with the tenants to ensure that there are no problems. You can either handle maintenance issues on your own, or can hand it over to a property management company for a certain fee. The cost of the fee should be considered as expense while calculating the final cash flow.

These tips should be helpful in serving as a stepping stone into your research and journey of real estate investing.

The Buyer Benefits

attention-first-time-buyersWhen the bank is repossessing a property, it is commonly referred to as foreclosure.  There are many pros when working with these types of properties.  Foreclosures are often in decent condition and a few repairs will get it in shape to sell.

The benefits with this type of purchase are great. The price that you pay for the house or property will be greatly reduced from real estate comps given for properties in the area. Most individuals that find themselves faced with foreclosure have no way to get out of the situation, and would rather sell and not make a profit, then to face the repercussions that can result in foreclosure. This gives you the benefit of negotiating directly with them. There isn’t a real estate agent, just you and the owner. When making an offer on a property in foreclosure it is less likely the owner will turn it down.

You can of course, buy a foreclosed property from the bank. At this point in the process the bank is looking to recoup some if its losses and you will more than likely pay more for the property. It is in your best interest to deal with a property before it is officially foreclosed. The owner is desperate to be out of this situation, possibly looking to make a small profit just to be able to move on.  While it may be a desperate time for the owner, it is a win-win situation for you as a buyer.

There is no question that the overflow of foreclosed properties has presented a unique opportunity for anyone interested in making money in the real estate market. Be sure to educate yourself, and you can learn to buy and flip houses for a quick profit.

The Foreclosure Market

imagesForeclosure investments involve the purchase of foreclosed homes, which are in good condition, and selling them for profitable returns. The challenge isn’t only in finding foreclosed homes, but in doing it in a way that you have a buyer nearby. Otherwise, investing in foreclosed homes could cost you a lot instead of letting you gain money.  Here are some things to consider when working with foreclosures.

If the house has damages that need to be repaired, it may take you quite some time to have everything fixed. It’s important to be realistic about your project timeline and how it will affect your budget on other projects. Finding foreclosed properties that you can use as rental properties is beneficial as you can use that income to fund other projects. This is what many real estate investors are doing.

So, where is the best place to find foreclosed properties or houses? I’m happy you asked….

The best places to begin your search for foreclosed properties include mortgage companies and local banks. Lending institutions or some financial institutions post their own list of distressed properties. Since these properties cost the bank some money to support them, they are being put on sale.

Another good place to find foreclosed homes for investment is a local real estate auction.

Make sure to educate yourself about all these things and many other of foreclosure investment.  Taking the time to do your research before stepping out into real estate investing will definitely benefit you and your business.

Investment Properties | Part Two

Investment-Properties-and-DoctorsLast time, we discussed investment property and the future of real estate comps and investing.  Today, let’s take a look at what property discounts are out there and where to find the best areas or hot spots.

Finding investment property from property developers with genuine discounts can be a task. It is important to identify whether the discount is genuine or whether the price has been inflated on the property to allow for the discount. To establish whether it is a genuine discount on the investment property by getting real estate comps of other properties that have recently sold and at what price. Just as important, is to establish what the likely rental figure will be for the investment property.  This will determine whether said property is worth the time and effort

If you are looking at property in areas that are experiencing high levels of growth, be prepared to adjust your purchase price accordingly.  Property investors with a long term views on investment property will still see this as a positive action to take for their investment property portfolio in the knowledge that as the regeneration area becomes more developed, the potential rental demand for the investment property will increase.  Taking the time to step back and look at the larger picture is wise and certainly will pay off in the long term.

An ideal network is one that comprises of builders, realtors, attorneys, other investors and local real estate professionals. These are people well versed in the field of investment property and can guide you in making the right investment

Personal finances are also important to consider before investing in real estate properties. It is imperative that you are sure of the kind of money required as well as the amount in hand or available at short notice, before you finalize a property.

Lastly, maintenance of the property should be taken into account. Even low maintenance property requires someone to be in constant touch with the tenants to ensure that there are no problems. You can either handle maintenance issues on your own, or can hand it over to a property management company for a certain fee. The cost of the fee should be considered as expense while calculating the final cash flow.

These tips should be helpful in serving as a stepping stone into your research and journey of real estate investing.

The Buyer Benefits

attention-first-time-buyersWhen the bank is repossessing a property, it is commonly referred to as foreclosure.  There are many pros when working with these types of properties.  Foreclosures are often in decent condition and a few repairs will get it in shape to sell.

The benefits with this type of purchase are great. The price that you pay for the house or property will be greatly reduced from real estate comps given for properties in the area. Most individuals that find themselves faced with foreclosure have no way to get out of the situation, and would rather sell and not make a profit, then to face the repercussions that can result in foreclosure. This gives you the benefit of negotiating directly with them. There isn’t a real estate agent, just you and the owner. When making an offer on a property in foreclosure it is less likely the owner will turn it down.

You can of course, buy a foreclosed property from the bank. At this point in the process the bank is looking to recoup some if its losses and you will more than likely pay more for the property. It is in your best interest to deal with a property before it is officially foreclosed. The owner is desperate to be out of this situation, possibly looking to make a small profit just to be able to move on.  While it may be a desperate time for the owner, it is a win-win situation for you as a buyer.

There is no question that the overflow of foreclosed properties has presented a unique opportunity for anyone interested in making money in the real estate market. Be sure to educate yourself, and you can learn to buy and flip houses for a quick profit.

The Foreclosure Market

imagesForeclosure investments involve the purchase of foreclosed homes, which are in good condition, and selling them for profitable returns. The challenge isn’t only in finding foreclosed homes, but in doing it in a way that you have a buyer nearby. Otherwise, investing in foreclosed homes could cost you a lot instead of letting you gain money.  Here are some things to consider when working with foreclosures.

If the house has damages that need to be repaired, it may take you quite some time to have everything fixed. It’s important to be realistic about your project timeline and how it will affect your budget on other projects. Finding foreclosed properties that you can use as rental properties is beneficial as you can use that income to fund other projects. This is what many real estate investors are doing.

So, where is the best place to find foreclosed properties or houses? I’m happy you asked….

The best places to begin your search for foreclosed properties include mortgage companies and local banks. Lending institutions or some financial institutions post their own list of distressed properties. Since these properties cost the bank some money to support them, they are being put on sale.

Another good place to find foreclosed homes for investment is a local real estate auction.

Make sure to educate yourself about all these things and many other of foreclosure investment.  Taking the time to do your research before stepping out into real estate investing will definitely benefit you and your business.

Investment Properties | Part Two

Investment-Properties-and-DoctorsLast time, we discussed investment property and the future of real estate comps and investing.  Today, let’s take a look at what property discounts are out there and where to find the best areas or hot spots.

Finding investment property from property developers with genuine discounts can be a task. It is important to identify whether the discount is genuine or whether the price has been inflated on the property to allow for the discount. To establish whether it is a genuine discount on the investment property by getting real estate comps of other properties that have recently sold and at what price. Just as important, is to establish what the likely rental figure will be for the investment property.  This will determine whether said property is worth the time and effort

If you are looking at property in areas that are experiencing high levels of growth, be prepared to adjust your purchase price accordingly.  Property investors with a long term views on investment property will still see this as a positive action to take for their investment property portfolio in the knowledge that as the regeneration area becomes more developed, the potential rental demand for the investment property will increase.  Taking the time to step back and look at the larger picture is wise and certainly will pay off in the long term.

Investment Properties | Part One

investmentInvestment property continues to be a popular form of investing for the future. When one can use real estate comps to offer a price for a property to benefit their business it is ideal.  Some chose investment property as a way of funding educational fees in the future.

Next time, I want to take a look at what are the property hot spots to take advantage of and how to get discounts once you find them.  Remember take the time to educate yourself in order to make your business grow.

attention-first-time-buyersWhen the bank is repossessing a property, it is commonly referred to as foreclosure.  There are many pros when working with these types of properties.  Foreclosures are often in decent condition and a few repairs will get it in shape to sell.

The benefits with this type of purchase are great. The price that you pay for the house or property will be greatly reduced from real estate comps given for properties in the area. Most individuals that find themselves faced with foreclosure have no way to get out of the situation, and would rather sell and not make a profit, then to face the repercussions that can result in foreclosure. This gives you the benefit of negotiating directly with them. There isn’t a real estate agent, just you and the owner. When making an offer on a property in foreclosure it is less likely the owner will turn it down.

You can of course, buy a foreclosed property from the bank. At this point in the process the bank is looking to recoup some if its losses and you will more than likely pay more for the property. It is in your best interest to deal with a property before it is officially foreclosed. The owner is desperate to be out of this situation, possibly looking to make a small profit just to be able to move on.  While it may be a desperate time for the owner, it is a win-win situation for you as a buyer.

There is no question that the overflow of foreclosed properties has presented a unique opportunity for anyone interested in making money in the real estate market. Be sure to educate yourself, and you can learn to buy and flip houses for a quick profit.

The Foreclosure Market

imagesForeclosure investments involve the purchase of foreclosed homes, which are in good condition, and selling them for profitable returns. The challenge isn’t only in finding foreclosed homes, but in doing it in a way that you have a buyer nearby. Otherwise, investing in foreclosed homes could cost you a lot instead of letting you gain money.  Here are some things to consider when working with foreclosures.

If the house has damages that need to be repaired, it may take you quite some time to have everything fixed. It’s important to be realistic about your project timeline and how it will affect your budget on other projects. Finding foreclosed properties that you can use as rental properties is beneficial as you can use that income to fund other projects. This is what many real estate investors are doing.

So, where is the best place to find foreclosed properties or houses? I’m happy you asked….

The best places to begin your search for foreclosed properties include mortgage companies and local banks. Lending institutions or some financial institutions post their own list of distressed properties. Since these properties cost the bank some money to support them, they are being put on sale.

Another good place to find foreclosed homes for investment is a local real estate auction.

Make sure to educate yourself about all these things and many other of foreclosure investment.  Taking the time to do your research before stepping out into real estate investing will definitely benefit you and your business.

Investment Properties | Part Two

Investment-Properties-and-DoctorsLast time, we discussed investment property and the future of real estate comps and investing.  Today, let’s take a look at what property discounts are out there and where to find the best areas or hot spots.

Finding investment property from property developers with genuine discounts can be a task. It is important to identify whether the discount is genuine or whether the price has been inflated on the property to allow for the discount. To establish whether it is a genuine discount on the investment property by getting real estate comps of other properties that have recently sold and at what price. Just as important, is to establish what the likely rental figure will be for the investment property.  This will determine whether said property is worth the time and effort

If you are looking at property in areas that are experiencing high levels of growth, be prepared to adjust your purchase price accordingly.  Property investors with a long term views on investment property will still see this as a positive action to take for their investment property portfolio in the knowledge that as the regeneration area becomes more developed, the potential rental demand for the investment property will increase.  Taking the time to step back and look at the larger picture is wise and certainly will pay off in the long term.

Investment Properties | Part One

investmentInvestment property continues to be a popular form of investing for the future. When one can use real estate comps to offer a price for a property to benefit their business it is ideal.  Some chose investment property as a way of funding educational fees in the future. Others may chose investment property to help secure a more financial future, fund additional investment property purchases, or they may simply choose investment property as a way of creating passive income so as not solely dependent on their mainstream employment.

Despite recent interest rates going up, the property investment market in the US remains strong. The investment property market has experienced a high level of growth especially over the past few years.  This results in a dramatic increase in investment property and incentives for landlords and investors. These represent significant savings to a property investor buying multiple investment properties and subject to sourcing the best buy to let mortgage products for these investment property deals, can often result in the property investor having the ability to buy an investment property with little or no deposit.

Next time, I want to take a look at what are the property hot spots to take advantage of and how to get discounts once you find them.  Remember take the time to educate yourself in order to make your business grow.

Purchasing Investment Property

Buying-Your-First-Investment-Property-15Investment property is an age old stream of passive income.  The past few years have seen a lot of people investing in properties, which are slowly beginning to yield results in terms of income. However, if you have not invested in any kind of real estate, it’s time to take some good real estate comps and use the following principles of purchasing investment property.

First, it is important to understand that where the property is located can affect the price. In order to try and avoid higher payments for property, it is important to develop a network, which will help you understand the market and ensure that you pay the right price. An ideal network is one that comprises of builders, realtors, attorneys, other investors and local real estate professionals. These are people well versed in the field of investment property and can guide you in making the right investment

Personal finances are also important to consider before investing in real estate properties. It is imperative that you are sure of the kind of money required as well as the amount in hand or available at short notice, before you finalize a property.

Lastly, maintenance of the property should be taken into account. Even low maintenance property requires someone to be in constant touch with the tenants to ensure that there are no problems. You can either handle maintenance issues on your own, or can hand it over to a property management company for a certain fee. The cost of the fee should be considered as expense while calculating the final cash flow.

These tips should be helpful in serving as a stepping stone into your research and journey of real estate investing.
