Investing In You

Investing In YouIf you have been researching real estate rehabbing and investing, you know how important real estate comps are to the process.  Equally as important is the value a good investing education brings.  People are always searching for ways to make additional income.  Real estate is one of the more popular ways to make your money grow.

Real Estate Investing requires knowledge of different techniques that can be used when trying to buy, sell, negotiate or repair a house. Without this type of informed knowledge real estate investing can be a difficult road to travel.

Having this specific knowledge can mean the difference between success or failure. It can be what separates those that do invest and those that just talk about investing. The knowledge that is needed is available to those that seek it. It is possible for anyone to learn how to invest in real estate.

Anyone that is considering buying property as an investment should become educated before starting. Many property investments are attempted everyday by investors. In most cases however, only the investors who have taken the time to educate themselves will be successful.

There are several different types of educational opportunities. You can purchase books from the local bookstore to get some advice. There is also a large number of websites that focus on real estate investing. One may also find coaching and mentoring online to help those that don’t believe they are quite comfortable enough yet to do real estate deals on their own.

One should never skip the educational process. Real estate investing can be a very profitable business. It can also financially drain those that do not understand how to minimize the risks. A proper education in real estate investing is a great way to minimize that risk and get on the path of financial independence.

Real Estate Investing Education

Real Estate Investing EducationMany people know that in today’s foreclosure market there is a huge opportunity to make money, but how does one get started? To become a successful real estate investor you need to get a proper real estate investing education.

Many people think that working with real estate comps and investment properties is just a hobby and they do not take it seriously.  You must know the rules of the game in order to play to win.  There are many ways to educate yourself.  There are online courses, in person classes, coaching and more.  Make sure you research your options in order to make the right decision. Take courses to further your investment skills and knowledge. If you get educated and learn the rules of the game of real estate investing right now and you take action, you can make lots of profits.

Education has always been key to getting ahead in life. The more you know and apply it the more successful you become. You can create wealth for your family by investing time today.  Go make your mark!

The Importance of Strategy

The Importance of StrategyWhen stepping into the world of real estate investing, you have to have a plan. There is really no one plan that is either good or bad. But you have to have some plan, regardless of what it is, and it will always need to include use of real estate comps for your deals. Today, I want to talk about some things to keep a focus on when making your plan.

The first thing first, decide on a realistic goal and a time frame and what you can get completed in that certain amount of time. It doesn’t matter what the time frame is.  Maybe the goal is to get your first house under contract or first bid accepted in 30 days. Once the plan is made, you must stick to it.

After you have decided on what you want to accomplish and the timeline you want to accomplish it in, the next step is to actually begin putting that plan into action. I will say, that the plan is to buy a property for rehab and sell in the 6 months. The first thing you need to do is actively look for a fixer upper. It will not jump onto your books. Next, how much work, in both time and dollars, are you going to put into this property? Make your budget and stick to it.  Being firm with your budget will be a essential part of your rehab plan.

Be wise with your time, don’t allow distractions to keep you away from the timeline goal you set. Since you have your plan written down, when issues arise you will be able to navigate them because you have planned for them.  Focus your time on the next progressive step and do not waste time.  Time is money, anyway you want to slice it. The reason that most people fail in real estate is because they don’t have a plan.

Overall, today’s take away is to set your goal(s), make your plan on how you will achieve them, and work your plan.  This will take some of the stress out of real estate investing and help you to make solid choices each step along the way. So if you’re thinking of getting into real estate investing, have a plan, and stick to it.

The Real Estate Investing Challenge

Real Estate Investing ChallengeForeclosure investing is a great way to build your income, it can be a challenge, but one that you can be prepared for.  There are many profits to be made in real estate each year, this is evident by a quick scan of real estate comps for any area.  I would like to look at some points about foreclosure investing.

First question to ask is what do you know about the property in foreclosure?  What do the real estate comps tell you about the property and the homes surrounding?  What did you learn by walking the property?  Which areas would need to be completely redone or which areas qualify for a touch up here and there?

Banks and lenders do not like the foreclosure process. Their goal is to sell the property as quickly as possible so that they do not pay the taxes and other expenses involving carrying the property. All they want is the money to cover the current debt. Often times this can be at 65% of the actual market value. As you begin your quest to become a foreclosure investor you need to be well aware of the market value for the properties you are looking at.  Remember you make your profit when you buy,  so go make it happen.

Moving Forward Part Two

Moving ForwardLast time, we discussed some tips I feel are important to keep in mind when starting out in real estate investing.  Today,  let’s take a look at a few more tips to use.  We know that working with good real estate comps is key, but it is my hope that these tips will be helpful as well.

My fourth tip is to take advantage of those experts that are around you.  The people that know their particular areas of expertise and can help you achieve your goals.  This team of experts will help to eliminate the risk of your inexperience and lack of knowledge. You can get to the next level in your real estate investment career when you have the expertise of people who already know how to navigate their way through a deal.

Fifth, remember that marketing is an important part of any business. Taking your real estate business to the next level means you must develop your marketing skills by putting them into action. For example, I started marketing via Twitter, and Facebook; while I still use those avenues I have added direct mail as well. Basically, I took one marketing strategy, learned it, and honed it until it produced a reward for me. Then I started working other forms of marketing.

Lastly, the power of positivity can make all the difference.  Your positive attitude will push you forward when you may feel like giving up.  You must believe in yourself before any one else will.  Being consistent in your efforts will lead you to success because you did not give up.

No matter where you are in your real estate career, these tips will help you get to the next level. When you combine education, expertise, marketing, and a positive attitude, you’re well on your way to success.

As you begin your quest to become a foreclosure investor you need to be well aware of the market value for the properties you are looking at.  Remember you make your profit when you buy,  so go make it happen.

Moving Forward Part Two

Moving ForwardLast time, we discussed some tips I feel are important to keep in mind when starting out in real estate investing.  Today,  let’s take a look at a few more tips to use.  We know that working with good real estate comps is key, but it is my hope that these tips will be helpful as well.

My fourth tip is to take advantage of those experts that are around you.  The people that know their particular areas of expertise and can help you achieve your goals.  This team of experts will help to eliminate the risk of your inexperience and lack of knowledge. You can get to the next level in your real estate investment career when you have the expertise of people who already know how to navigate their way through a deal.

Fifth, remember that marketing is an important part of any business. Taking your real estate business to the next level means you must develop your marketing skills by putting them into action. For example, I started marketing via Twitter, and Facebook; while I still use those avenues I have added direct mail as well. Basically, I took one marketing strategy, learned it, and honed it until it produced a reward for me. Then I started working other forms of marketing.

Lastly, the power of positivity can make all the difference.  Your positive attitude will push you forward when you may feel like giving up.  You must believe in yourself before any one else will.  Being consistent in your efforts will lead you to success because you did not give up.

No matter where you are in your real estate career, these tips will help you get to the next level. When you combine education, expertise, marketing, and a positive attitude, you’re well on your way to success.

Investing In You

Investing In YouIf you have been researching real estate rehabbing and investing, you know how important real estate comps are to the process.  Equally as important is the value a good investing education brings.  People are always searching for ways to make additional income.  Real estate is one of the more popular ways to make your money grow.

Real Estate Investing requires knowledge of different techniques that can be used when trying to buy, sell, negotiate or repair a house. Without this type of informed knowledge real estate investing can be a difficult road to travel.

Having this specific knowledge can mean the difference between success or failure. It can be what separates those that do invest and those that just talk about investing. The knowledge that is needed is available to those that seek it. It is possible for anyone to learn how to invest in real estate.

Anyone that is considering buying property as an investment should become educated before starting. Many property investments are attempted everyday by investors. In most cases however, only the investors who have taken the time to educate themselves will be successful.

There are several different types of educational opportunities. You can purchase books from the local bookstore to get some advice. There is also a large number of websites that focus on real estate investing. One may also find coaching and mentoring online to help those that don’t believe they are quite comfortable enough yet to do real estate deals on their own.

One should never skip the educational process. Real estate investing can be a very profitable business. It can also financially drain those that do not understand how to minimize the risks. A proper education in real estate investing is a great way to minimize that risk and get on the path of financial independence.

Real Estate Investing Education

Real Estate Investing EducationMany people know that in today’s foreclosure market there is a huge opportunity to make money, but how does one get started? To become a successful real estate investor you need to get a proper real estate investing education.

Many people think that working with real estate comps and investment properties is just a hobby and they do not take it seriously.  You must know the rules of the game in order to play to win.  There are many ways to educate yourself.  There are online courses, in person classes, coaching and more.  Make sure you research your options in order to make the right decision. Take courses to further your investment skills and knowledge. If you get educated and learn the rules of the game of real estate investing right now and you take action, you can make lots of profits.

Education has always been key to getting ahead in life. The more you know and apply it the more successful you become. You can create wealth for your family by investing time today.  Go make your mark!

The Importance of Strategy

The Importance of StrategyWhen stepping into the world of real estate investing, you have to have a plan. There is really no one plan that is either good or bad. But you have to have some plan, regardless of what it is, and it will always need to include use of real estate comps for your deals. Today, I want to talk about some things to keep a focus on when making your plan.

The first thing first, decide on a realistic goal and a time frame and what you can get completed in that certain amount of time. It doesn’t matter what the time frame is.  Maybe the goal is to get your first house under contract or first bid accepted in 30 days. Once the plan is made, you must stick to it.

After you have decided on what you want to accomplish and the timeline you want to accomplish it in, the next step is to actually begin putting that plan into action. I will say, that the plan is to buy a property for rehab and sell in the 6 months. The first thing you need to do is actively look for a fixer upper. It will not jump onto your books. Next, how much work, in both time and dollars, are you going to put into this property? Make your budget and stick to it.  Being firm with your budget will be a essential part of your rehab plan.

Be wise with your time, don’t allow distractions to keep you away from the timeline goal you set. Since you have your plan written down, when issues arise you will be able to navigate them because you have planned for them.  Focus your time on the next progressive step and do not waste time.  Time is money, anyway you want to slice it. The reason that most people fail in real estate is because they don’t have a plan.

Overall, today’s take away is to set your goal(s), make your plan on how you will achieve them, and work your plan.  This will take some of the stress out of real estate investing and help you to make solid choices each step along the way. So if you’re thinking of getting into real estate investing, have a plan, and stick to it.

The Real Estate Investing Challenge

Real Estate Investing ChallengeForeclosure investing is a great way to build your income, it can be a challenge, but one that you can be prepared for.  There are many profits to be made in real estate each year, this is evident by a quick scan of real estate comps for any area.  I would like to look at some points about foreclosure investing.

First question to ask is what do you know about the property in foreclosure?  What do the real estate comps tell you about the property and the homes surrounding?  What did you learn by walking the property?  Which areas would need to be completely redone or which areas qualify for a touch up here and there?

Banks and lenders do not like the foreclosure process. Their goal is to sell the property as quickly as possible so that they do not pay the taxes and other expenses involving carrying the property. All they want is the money to cover the current debt. Often times this can be at 65% of the actual market value.

I will say, that the plan is to buy a property for rehab and sell in the 6 months. The first thing you need to do is actively look for a fixer upper. It will not jump onto your books. Next, how much work, in both time and dollars, are you going to put into this property? Make your budget and stick to it.  Being firm with your budget will be a essential part of your rehab plan.

Be wise with your time, don’t allow distractions to keep you away from the timeline goal you set. Since you have your plan written down, when issues arise you will be able to navigate them because you have planned for them.  Focus your time on the next progressive step and do not waste time.  Time is money, anyway you want to slice it. The reason that most people fail in real estate is because they don’t have a plan.

Overall, today’s take away is to set your goal(s), make your plan on how you will achieve them, and work your plan.  This will take some of the stress out of real estate investing and help you to make solid choices each step along the way. So if you’re thinking of getting into real estate investing, have a plan, and stick to it.

The Real Estate Investing Challenge

Real Estate Investing ChallengeForeclosure investing is a great way to build your income, it can be a challenge, but one that you can be prepared for.  There are many profits to be made in real estate each year, this is evident by a quick scan of real estate comps for any area.  I would like to look at some points about foreclosure investing.

First question to ask is what do you know about the property in foreclosure?  What do the real estate comps tell you about the property and the homes surrounding?  What did you learn by walking the property?  Which areas would need to be completely redone or which areas qualify for a touch up here and there?

Banks and lenders do not like the foreclosure process. Their goal is to sell the property as quickly as possible so that they do not pay the taxes and other expenses involving carrying the property. All they want is the money to cover the current debt. Often times this can be at 65% of the actual market value. As you begin your quest to become a foreclosure investor you need to be well aware of the market value for the properties you are looking at.  Remember you make your profit when you buy,  so go make it happen.

Moving Forward Part Two

Moving ForwardLast time, we discussed some tips I feel are important to keep in mind when starting out in real estate investing.  Today,  let’s take a look at a few more tips to use.  We know that working with good real estate comps is key, but it is my hope that these tips will be helpful as well.

My fourth tip is to take advantage of those experts that are around you.  The people that know their particular areas of expertise and can help you achieve your goals.  This team of experts will help to eliminate the risk of your inexperience and lack of knowledge. You can get to the next level in your real estate investment career when you have the expertise of people who already know how to navigate their way through a deal.

Fifth, remember that marketing is an important part of any business. Taking your real estate business to the next level means you must develop your marketing skills by putting them into action. For example, I started marketing via Twitter, and Facebook; while I still use those avenues I have added direct mail as well. Basically, I took one marketing strategy, learned it, and honed it until it produced a reward for me. Then I started working other forms of marketing.

Lastly, the power of positivity can make all the difference.  Your positive attitude will push you forward when you may feel like giving up.  You must believe in yourself before any one else will.  Being consistent in your efforts will lead you to success because you did not give up.

No matter where you are in your real estate career, these tips will help you get to the next level. When you combine education, expertise, marketing, and a positive attitude, you’re well on your way to success.

One should never skip the educational process. Real estate investing can be a very profitable business. It can also financially drain those that do not understand how to minimize the risks. A proper education in real estate investing is a great way to minimize that risk and get on the path of financial independence.

Real Estate Investing Education

Real Estate Investing EducationMany people know that in today’s foreclosure market there is a huge opportunity to make money, but how does one get started? To become a successful real estate investor you need to get a proper real estate investing education.

Take courses to further your investment skills and knowledge. If you get educated and learn the rules of the game of real estate investing right now and you take action, you can make lots of profits.

Education has always been key to getting ahead in life. The more you know and apply it the more successful you become. You can create wealth for your family by investing time today.  Go make your mark!

The Importance of Strategy

The Importance of StrategyWhen stepping into the world of real estate investing, you have to have a plan. There is really no one plan that is either good or bad. But you have to have some plan, regardless of what it is, and it will always need to include use of real estate comps for your deals. Today, I want to talk about some things to keep a focus on when making your plan.

The first thing first, decide on a realistic goal and a time frame and what you can get completed in that certain amount of time. It doesn’t matter what the time frame is.  Maybe the goal is to get your first house under contract or first bid accepted in 30 days. Once the plan is made, you must stick to it.

After you have decided on what you want to accomplish and the timeline you want to accomplish it in, the next step is to actually begin putting that plan into action. I will say, that the plan is to buy a property for rehab and sell in the 6 months. The first thing you need to do is actively look for a fixer upper. It will not jump onto your books. Next, how much work, in both time and dollars, are you going to put into this property? Make your budget and stick to it.  Being firm with your budget will be a essential part of your rehab plan.

Be wise with your time, don’t allow distractions to keep you away from the timeline goal you set. Since you have your plan written down, when issues arise you will be able to navigate them because you have planned for them.  Focus your time on the next progressive step and do not waste time.  Time is money, anyway you want to slice it. The reason that most people fail in real estate is because they don’t have a plan.

Overall, today’s take away is to set your goal(s), make your plan on how you will achieve them, and work your plan.  This will take some of the stress out of real estate investing and help you to make solid choices each step along the way. So if you’re thinking of getting into real estate investing, have a plan, and stick to it.

The Real Estate Investing Challenge

Real Estate Investing ChallengeForeclosure investing is a great way to build your income, it can be a challenge, but one that you can be prepared for.  There are many profits to be made in real estate each year, this is evident by a quick scan of real estate comps for any area.  I would like to look at some points about foreclosure investing.

First question to ask is what do you know about the property in foreclosure?  What do the real estate comps tell you about the property and the homes surrounding?  What did you learn by walking the property?  Which areas would need to be completely redone or which areas qualify for a touch up here and there?

Banks and lenders do not like the foreclosure process. Their goal is to sell the property as quickly as possible so that they do not pay the taxes and other expenses involving carrying the property. All they want is the money to cover the current debt. Often times this can be at 65% of the actual market value. As you begin your quest to become a foreclosure investor you need to be well aware of the market value for the properties you are looking at.  Remember you make your profit when you buy,  so go make it happen.

Moving Forward Part Two

Moving ForwardLast time, we discussed some tips I feel are important to keep in mind when starting out in real estate investing.  Today,  let’s take a look at a few more tips to use.  We know that working with good real estate comps is key, but it is my hope that these tips will be helpful as well.

My fourth tip is to take advantage of those experts that are around you.  The people that know their particular areas of expertise and can help you achieve your goals.  This team of experts will help to eliminate the risk of your inexperience and lack of knowledge. You can get to the next level in your real estate investment career when you have the expertise of people who already know how to navigate their way through a deal.

Fifth, remember that marketing is an important part of any business. Taking your real estate business to the next level means you must develop your marketing skills by putting them into action. For example, I started marketing via Twitter, and Facebook; while I still use those avenues I have added direct mail as well. Basically, I took one marketing strategy, learned it, and honed it until it produced a reward for me. Then I started working other forms of marketing.

Lastly, the power of positivity can make all the difference.  Your positive attitude will push you forward when you may feel like giving up.  You must believe in yourself before any one else will.  Being consistent in your efforts will lead you to success because you did not give up.

No matter where you are in your real estate career, these tips will help you get to the next level. When you combine education, expertise, marketing, and a positive attitude, you’re well on your way to success.

Basically, I took one marketing strategy, learned it, and honed it until it produced a reward for me. Then I started working other forms of marketing.

Lastly, the power of positivity can make all the difference.  Your positive attitude will push you forward when you may feel like giving up.  You must believe in yourself before any one else will.  Being consistent in your efforts will lead you to success because you did not give up.

No matter where you are in your real estate career, these tips will help you get to the next level. When you combine education, expertise, marketing, and a positive attitude, you’re well on your way to success.

Investing In You

Investing In YouIf you have been researching real estate rehabbing and investing, you know how important real estate comps are to the process.  Equally as important is the value a good investing education brings.  People are always searching for ways to make additional income.  Real estate is one of the more popular ways to make your money grow.

Real Estate Investing requires knowledge of different techniques that can be used when trying to buy, sell, negotiate or repair a house. Without this type of informed knowledge real estate investing can be a difficult road to travel.

Having this specific knowledge can mean the difference between success or failure. It can be what separates those that do invest and those that just talk about investing. The knowledge that is needed is available to those that seek it. It is possible for anyone to learn how to invest in real estate.

Anyone that is considering buying property as an investment should become educated before starting. Many property investments are attempted everyday by investors. In most cases however, only the investors who have taken the time to educate themselves will be successful.

There are several different types of educational opportunities. You can purchase books from the local bookstore to get some advice. There is also a large number of websites that focus on real estate investing. One may also find coaching and mentoring online to help those that don’t believe they are quite comfortable enough yet to do real estate deals on their own.

One should never skip the educational process. Real estate investing can be a very profitable business. It can also financially drain those that do not understand how to minimize the risks. A proper education in real estate investing is a great way to minimize that risk and get on the path of financial independence.

Real Estate Investing Education

Real Estate Investing EducationMany people know that in today’s foreclosure market there is a huge opportunity to make money, but how does one get started? To become a successful real estate investor you need to get a proper real estate investing education.

Many people think that working with real estate comps and investment properties is just a hobby and they do not take it seriously.  You must know the rules of the game in order to play to win.  There are many ways to educate yourself.  There are online courses, in person classes, coaching and more.  Make sure you research your options in order to make the right decision. Take courses to further your investment skills and knowledge. If you get educated and learn the rules of the game of real estate investing right now and you take action, you can make lots of profits.

Education has always been key to getting ahead in life. The more you know and apply it the more successful you become. You can create wealth for your family by investing time today.  Go make your mark!

The Importance of Strategy

The Importance of StrategyWhen stepping into the world of real estate investing, you have to have a plan. There is really no one plan that is either good or bad. But you have to have some plan, regardless of what it is, and it will always need to include use of real estate comps for your deals. Today, I want to talk about some things to keep a focus on when making your plan.

The first thing first, decide on a realistic goal and a time frame and what you can get completed in that certain amount of time. It doesn’t matter what the time frame is.  Maybe the goal is to get your first house under contract or first bid accepted in 30 days. Once the plan is made, you must stick to it.

After you have decided on what you want to accomplish and the timeline you want to accomplish it in, the next step is to actually begin putting that plan into action. I will say, that the plan is to buy a property for rehab and sell in the 6 months. The first thing you need to do is actively look for a fixer upper. It will not jump onto your books. Next, how much work, in both time and dollars, are you going to put into this property? Make your budget and stick to it.  Being firm with your budget will be a essential part of your rehab plan.

Be wise with your time, don’t allow distractions to keep you away from the timeline goal you set. Since you have your plan written down, when issues arise you will be able to navigate them because you have planned for them.  Focus your time on the next progressive step and do not waste time.  Time is money, anyway you want to slice it. The reason that most people fail in real estate is because they don’t have a plan.

Overall, today’s take away is to set your goal(s), make your plan on how you will achieve them, and work your plan.  This will take some of the stress out of real estate investing and help you to make solid choices each step along the way. So if you’re thinking of getting into real estate investing, have a plan, and stick to it.

The Real Estate Investing Challenge

Real Estate Investing ChallengeForeclosure investing is a great way to build your income, it can be a challenge, but one that you can be prepared for.  There are many profits to be made in real estate each year, this is evident by a quick scan of real estate comps for any area.  I would like to look at some points about foreclosure investing.

First question to ask is what do you know about the property in foreclosure?  What do the real estate comps tell you about the property and the homes surrounding?  What did you learn by walking the property?  Which areas would need to be completely redone or which areas qualify for a touch up here and there?

Banks and lenders do not like the foreclosure process. Their goal is to sell the property as quickly as possible so that they do not pay the taxes and other expenses involving carrying the property. All they want is the money to cover the current debt. Often times this can be at 65% of the actual market value. As you begin your quest to become a foreclosure investor you need to be well aware of the market value for the properties you are looking at.  Remember you make your profit when you buy,  so go make it happen.

Moving Forward Part Two

Moving ForwardLast time, we discussed some tips I feel are important to keep in mind when starting out in real estate investing.  Today,  let’s take a look at a few more tips to use.  We know that working with good real estate comps is key, but it is my hope that these tips will be helpful as well.

My fourth tip is to take advantage of those experts that are around you.  The people that know their particular areas of expertise and can help you achieve your goals.  This team of experts will help to eliminate the risk of your inexperience and lack of knowledge. You can get to the next level in your real estate investment career when you have the expertise of people who already know how to navigate their way through a deal.

Fifth, remember that marketing is an important part of any business. Taking your real estate business to the next level means you must develop your marketing skills by putting them into action. For example, I started marketing via Twitter, and Facebook; while I still use those avenues I have added direct mail as well.

Real Estate Investing ChallengeForeclosure investing is a great way to build your income, it can be a challenge, but one that you can be prepared for.  There are many profits to be made in real estate each year, this is evident by a quick scan of real estate comps for any area.  I would like to look at some points about foreclosure investing.

First question to ask is what do you know about the property in foreclosure?  What do the real estate comps tell you about the property and the homes surrounding?  What did you learn by walking the property?  Which areas would need to be completely redone or which areas qualify for a touch up here and there?

Banks and lenders do not like the foreclosure process. Their goal is to sell the property as quickly as possible so that they do not pay the taxes and other expenses involving carrying the property. All they want is the money to cover the current debt. Often times this can be at 65% of the actual market value. As you begin your quest to become a foreclosure investor you need to be well aware of the market value for the properties you are looking at.  Remember you make your profit when you buy,  so go make it happen.

Moving Forward Part Two

Moving ForwardLast time, we discussed some tips I feel are important to keep in mind when starting out in real estate investing.  Today,  let’s take a look at a few more tips to use.  We know that working with good real estate comps is key, but it is my hope that these tips will be helpful as well.

My fourth tip is to take advantage of those experts that are around you.  The people that know their particular areas of expertise and can help you achieve your goals.  This team of experts will help to eliminate the risk of your inexperience and lack of knowledge. You can get to the next level in your real estate investment career when you have the expertise of people who already know how to navigate their way through a deal.

Fifth, remember that marketing is an important part of any business. Taking your real estate business to the next level means you must develop your marketing skills by putting them into action. For example, I started marketing via Twitter, and Facebook; while I still use those avenues I have added direct mail as well. Basically, I took one marketing strategy, learned it, and honed it until it produced a reward for me. Then I started working other forms of marketing.

Lastly, the power of positivity can make all the difference.  Your positive attitude will push you forward when you may feel like giving up.  You must believe in yourself before any one else will.  Being consistent in your efforts will lead you to success because you did not give up.

No matter where you are in your real estate career, these tips will help you get to the next level. When you combine education, expertise, marketing, and a positive attitude, you’re well on your way to success.

Investing In You

Investing In YouIf you have been researching real estate rehabbing and investing, you know how important real estate comps are to the process.  Equally as important is the value a good investing education brings.  People are always searching for ways to make additional income.  Real estate is one of the more popular ways to make your money grow.

Real Estate Investing requires knowledge of different techniques that can be used when trying to buy, sell, negotiate or repair a house. Without this type of informed knowledge real estate investing can be a difficult road to travel.

Having this specific knowledge can mean the difference between success or failure. It can be what separates those that do invest and those that just talk about investing. The knowledge that is needed is available to those that seek it. It is possible for anyone to learn how to invest in real estate.

Anyone that is considering buying property as an investment should become educated before starting. Many property investments are attempted everyday by investors. In most cases however, only the investors who have taken the time to educate themselves will be successful.

There are several different types of educational opportunities. You can purchase books from the local bookstore to get some advice. There is also a large number of websites that focus on real estate investing. One may also find coaching and mentoring online to help those that don’t believe they are quite comfortable enough yet to do real estate deals on their own.

One should never skip the educational process. Real estate investing can be a very profitable business. It can also financially drain those that do not understand how to minimize the risks. A proper education in real estate investing is a great way to minimize that risk and get on the path of financial independence.

Real Estate Investing Education

Real Estate Investing EducationMany people know that in today’s foreclosure market there is a huge opportunity to make money, but how does one get started? To become a successful real estate investor you need to get a proper real estate investing education.

Many people think that working with real estate comps and investment properties is just a hobby and they do not take it seriously.  You must know the rules of the game in order to play to win.  There are many ways to educate yourself.  There are online courses, in person classes, coaching and more.  Make sure you research your options in order to make the right decision. Take courses to further your investment skills and knowledge. If you get educated and learn the rules of the game of real estate investing right now and you take action, you can make lots of profits.

Education has always been key to getting ahead in life. The more you know and apply it the more successful you become. You can create wealth for your family by investing time today.  Go make your mark!

The Importance of Strategy

The Importance of StrategyWhen stepping into the world of real estate investing, you have to have a plan. There is really no one plan that is either good or bad. But you have to have some plan, regardless of what it is, and it will always need to include use of real estate comps for your deals. Today, I want to talk about some things to keep a focus on when making your plan.

The first thing first, decide on a realistic goal and a time frame and what you can get completed in that certain amount of time. It doesn’t matter what the time frame is.  Maybe the goal is to get your first house under contract or first bid accepted in 30 days. Once the plan is made, you must stick to it.

After you have decided on what you want to accomplish and the timeline you want to accomplish it in, the next step is to actually begin putting that plan into action. I will say, that the plan is to buy a property for rehab and sell in the 6 months. The first thing you need to do is actively look for a fixer upper. It will not jump onto your books. Next, how much work, in both time and dollars, are you going to put into this property? Make your budget and stick to it.  Being firm with your budget will be a essential part of your rehab plan.

Be wise with your time, don’t allow distractions to keep you away from the timeline goal you set. Since you have your plan written down, when issues arise you will be able to navigate them because you have planned for them.  Focus your time on the next progressive step and do not waste time.  Time is money, anyway you want to slice it. The reason that most people fail in real estate is because they don’t have a plan.

Overall, today’s take away is to set your goal(s), make your plan on how you will achieve them, and work your plan.  This will take some of the stress out of real estate investing and help you to make solid choices each step along the way. So if you’re thinking of getting into real estate investing, have a plan, and stick to it.

But you have to have some plan, regardless of what it is, and it will always need to include use of real estate comps for your deals. Today, I want to talk about some things to keep a focus on when making your plan.

The first thing first, decide on a realistic goal and a time frame and what you can get completed in that certain amount of time. It doesn’t matter what the time frame is.  Maybe the goal is to get your first house under contract or first bid accepted in 30 days. Once the plan is made, you must stick to it.

After you have decided on what you want to accomplish and the timeline you want to accomplish it in, the next step is to actually begin putting that plan into action. I will say, that the plan is to buy a property for rehab and sell in the 6 months. The first thing you need to do is actively look for a fixer upper. It will not jump onto your books. Next, how much work, in both time and dollars, are you going to put into this property? Make your budget and stick to it.  Being firm with your budget will be a essential part of your rehab plan.

Be wise with your time, don’t allow distractions to keep you away from the timeline goal you set. Since you have your plan written down, when issues arise you will be able to navigate them because you have planned for them.  Focus your time on the next progressive step and do not waste time.  Time is money, anyway you want to slice it. The reason that most people fail in real estate is because they don’t have a plan.

Overall, today’s take away is to set your goal(s), make your plan on how you will achieve them, and work your plan.  This will take some of the stress out of real estate investing and help you to make solid choices each step along the way. So if you’re thinking of getting into real estate investing, have a plan, and stick to it.

The Real Estate Investing Challenge

Real Estate Investing ChallengeForeclosure investing is a great way to build your income, it can be a challenge, but one that you can be prepared for.  There are many profits to be made in real estate each year, this is evident by a quick scan of real estate comps for any area.  I would like to look at some points about foreclosure investing.

First question to ask is what do you know about the property in foreclosure?  What do the real estate comps tell you about the property and the homes surrounding?  What did you learn by walking the property?  Which areas would need to be completely redone or which areas qualify for a touch up here and there?

Banks and lenders do not like the foreclosure process. Their goal is to sell the property as quickly as possible so that they do not pay the taxes and other expenses involving carrying the property. All they want is the money to cover the current debt. Often times this can be at 65% of the actual market value. As you begin your quest to become a foreclosure investor you need to be well aware of the market value for the properties you are looking at.  Remember you make your profit when you buy,  so go make it happen.

Moving Forward Part Two

Moving ForwardLast time, we discussed some tips I feel are important to keep in mind when starting out in real estate investing.  Today,  let’s take a look at a few more tips to use.  We know that working with good real estate comps is key, but it is my hope that these tips will be helpful as well.

My fourth tip is to take advantage of those experts that are around you.  The people that know their particular areas of expertise and can help you achieve your goals.  This team of experts will help to eliminate the risk of your inexperience and lack of knowledge. You can get to the next level in your real estate investment career when you have the expertise of people who already know how to navigate their way through a deal.

Fifth, remember that marketing is an important part of any business. Taking your real estate business to the next level means you must develop your marketing skills by putting them into action. For example, I started marketing via Twitter, and Facebook; while I still use those avenues I have added direct mail as well. Basically, I took one marketing strategy, learned it, and honed it until it produced a reward for me. Then I started working other forms of marketing.

Lastly, the power of positivity can make all the difference.  Your positive attitude will push you forward when you may feel like giving up.  You must believe in yourself before any one else will.  Being consistent in your efforts will lead you to success because you did not give up.

No matter where you are in your real estate career, these tips will help you get to the next level. When you combine education, expertise, marketing, and a positive attitude, you’re well on your way to success.

Anyone that is considering buying property as an investment should become educated before starting. Many property investments are attempted everyday by investors. In most cases however, only the investors who have taken the time to educate themselves will be successful.

There are several different types of educational opportunities. You can purchase books from the local bookstore to get some advice. There is also a large number of websites that focus on real estate investing. One may also find coaching and mentoring online to help those that don’t believe they are quite comfortable enough yet to do real estate deals on their own.

One should never skip the educational process. Real estate investing can be a very profitable business. It can also financially drain those that do not understand how to minimize the risks. A proper education in real estate investing is a great way to minimize that risk and get on the path of financial independence.

Real Estate Investing Education

Real Estate Investing EducationMany people know that in today’s foreclosure market there is a huge opportunity to make money, but how does one get started? To become a successful real estate investor you need to get a proper real estate investing education.

Take courses to further your investment skills and knowledge. If you get educated and learn the rules of the game of real estate investing right now and you take action, you can make lots of profits.

Education has always been key to getting ahead in life. The more you know and apply it the more successful you become. You can create wealth for your family by investing time today.  Go make your mark!

The Importance of Strategy

The Importance of StrategyWhen stepping into the world of real estate investing, you have to have a plan. There is really no one plan that is either good or bad. But you have to have some plan, regardless of what it is, and it will always need to include use of real estate comps for your deals. Today, I want to talk about some things to keep a focus on when making your plan.

The first thing first, decide on a realistic goal and a time frame and what you can get completed in that certain amount of time. It doesn’t matter what the time frame is.  Maybe the goal is to get your first house under contract or first bid accepted in 30 days. Once the plan is made, you must stick to it.

After you have decided on what you want to accomplish and the timeline you want to accomplish it in, the next step is to actually begin putting that plan into action. I will say, that the plan is to buy a property for rehab and sell in the 6 months. The first thing you need to do is actively look for a fixer upper. It will not jump onto your books. Next, how much work, in both time and dollars, are you going to put into this property? Make your budget and stick to it.  Being firm with your budget will be a essential part of your rehab plan.

Be wise with your time, don’t allow distractions to keep you away from the timeline goal you set. Since you have your plan written down, when issues arise you will be able to navigate them because you have planned for them.  Focus your time on the next progressive step and do not waste time.  Time is money, anyway you want to slice it. The reason that most people fail in real estate is because they don’t have a plan.

Overall, today’s take away is to set your goal(s), make your plan on how you will achieve them, and work your plan.  This will take some of the stress out of real estate investing and help you to make solid choices each step along the way. So if you’re thinking of getting into real estate investing, have a plan, and stick to it.

The Real Estate Investing Challenge

Real Estate Investing ChallengeForeclosure investing is a great way to build your income, it can be a challenge, but one that you can be prepared for.  There are many profits to be made in real estate each year, this is evident by a quick scan of real estate comps for any area.  I would like to look at some points about foreclosure investing.

First question to ask is what do you know about the property in foreclosure?  What do the real estate comps tell you about the property and the homes surrounding?  What did you learn by walking the property?  Which areas would need to be completely redone or which areas qualify for a touch up here and there?

Banks and lenders do not like the foreclosure process. Their goal is to sell the property as quickly as possible so that they do not pay the taxes and other expenses involving carrying the property. All they want is the money to cover the current debt. Often times this can be at 65% of the actual market value. As you begin your quest to become a foreclosure investor you need to be well aware of the market value for the properties you are looking at.  Remember you make your profit when you buy,  so go make it happen.

Moving Forward Part Two

Moving ForwardLast time, we discussed some tips I feel are important to keep in mind when starting out in real estate investing.  Today,  let’s take a look at a few more tips to use.  We know that working with good real estate comps is key, but it is my hope that these tips will be helpful as well.

My fourth tip is to take advantage of those experts that are around you.  The people that know their particular areas of expertise and can help you achieve your goals.  This team of experts will help to eliminate the risk of your inexperience and lack of knowledge. You can get to the next level in your real estate investment career when you have the expertise of people who already know how to navigate their way through a deal.

Fifth, remember that marketing is an important part of any business. Taking your real estate business to the next level means you must develop your marketing skills by putting them into action. For example, I started marketing via Twitter, and Facebook; while I still use those avenues I have added direct mail as well. Basically, I took one marketing strategy, learned it, and honed it until it produced a reward for me. Then I started working other forms of marketing.

Lastly, the power of positivity can make all the difference.  Your positive attitude will push you forward when you may feel like giving up.  You must believe in yourself before any one else will.  Being consistent in your efforts will lead you to success because you did not give up.

No matter where you are in your real estate career, these tips will help you get to the next level. When you combine education, expertise, marketing, and a positive attitude, you’re well on your way to success.

My fourth tip is to take advantage of those experts that are around you.  The people that know their particular areas of expertise and can help you achieve your goals.  This team of experts will help to eliminate the risk of your inexperience and lack of knowledge. You can get to the next level in your real estate investment career when you have the expertise of people who already know how to navigate their way through a deal.

Fifth, remember that marketing is an important part of any business. Taking your real estate business to the next level means you must develop your marketing skills by putting them into action. For example, I started marketing via Twitter, and Facebook; while I still use those avenues I have added direct mail as well. Basically, I took one marketing strategy, learned it, and honed it until it produced a reward for me. Then I started working other forms of marketing.

Lastly, the power of positivity can make all the difference.  Your positive attitude will push you forward when you may feel like giving up.  You must believe in yourself before any one else will.  Being consistent in your efforts will lead you to success because you did not give up.

No matter where you are in your real estate career, these tips will help you get to the next level. When you combine education, expertise, marketing, and a positive attitude, you’re well on your way to success.

Investing In You

Investing In YouIf you have been researching real estate rehabbing and investing, you know how important real estate comps are to the process.  Equally as important is the value a good investing education brings.  People are always searching for ways to make additional income.  Real estate is one of the more popular ways to make your money grow.

Real Estate Investing requires knowledge of different techniques that can be used when trying to buy, sell, negotiate or repair a house. Without this type of informed knowledge real estate investing can be a difficult road to travel.

Having this specific knowledge can mean the difference between success or failure. It can be what separates those that do invest and those that just talk about investing. The knowledge that is needed is available to those that seek it. It is possible for anyone to learn how to invest in real estate.

Anyone that is considering buying property as an investment should become educated before starting. Many property investments are attempted everyday by investors. In most cases however, only the investors who have taken the time to educate themselves will be successful.

There are several different types of educational opportunities. You can purchase books from the local bookstore to get some advice. There is also a large number of websites that focus on real estate investing. One may also find coaching and mentoring online to help those that don’t believe they are quite comfortable enough yet to do real estate deals on their own.

One should never skip the educational process. Real estate investing can be a very profitable business. It can also financially drain those that do not understand how to minimize the risks. A proper education in real estate investing is a great way to minimize that risk and get on the path of financial independence.

Real Estate Investing Education

Real Estate Investing EducationMany people know that in today’s foreclosure market there is a huge opportunity to make money, but how does one get started? To become a successful real estate investor you need to get a proper real estate investing education.

Many people think that working with real estate comps and investment properties is just a hobby and they do not take it seriously.  You must know the rules of the game in order to play to win.  There are many ways to educate yourself.  There are online courses, in person classes, coaching and more.  Make sure you research your options in order to make the right decision. Take courses to further your investment skills and knowledge. If you get educated and learn the rules of the game of real estate investing right now and you take action, you can make lots of profits.

Education has always been key to getting ahead in life. The more you know and apply it the more successful you become. You can create wealth for your family by investing time today.  Go make your mark!

The Importance of Strategy

The Importance of StrategyWhen stepping into the world of real estate investing, you have to have a plan. There is really no one plan that is either good or bad. But you have to have some plan, regardless of what it is, and it will always need to include use of real estate comps for your deals. Today, I want to talk about some things to keep a focus on when making your plan.

The first thing first, decide on a realistic goal and a time frame and what you can get completed in that certain amount of time. It doesn’t matter what the time frame is.  Maybe the goal is to get your first house under contract or first bid accepted in 30 days. Once the plan is made, you must stick to it.

After you have decided on what you want to accomplish and the timeline you want to accomplish it in, the next step is to actually begin putting that plan into action. I will say, that the plan is to buy a property for rehab and sell in the 6 months. The first thing you need to do is actively look for a fixer upper. It will not jump onto your books. Next, how much work, in both time and dollars, are you going to put into this property? Make your budget and stick to it.  Being firm with your budget will be a essential part of your rehab plan.

Be wise with your time, don’t allow distractions to keep you away from the timeline goal you set. Since you have your plan written down, when issues arise you will be able to navigate them because you have planned for them.  Focus your time on the next progressive step and do not waste time.  Time is money, anyway you want to slice it. The reason that most people fail in real estate is because they don’t have a plan.

Overall, today’s take away is to set your goal(s), make your plan on how you will achieve them, and work your plan.  This will take some of the stress out of real estate investing and help you to make solid choices each step along the way. So if you’re thinking of getting into real estate investing, have a plan, and stick to it.

The Real Estate Investing Challenge

Real Estate Investing ChallengeForeclosure investing is a great way to build your income, it can be a challenge, but one that you can be prepared for.  There are many profits to be made in real estate each year, this is evident by a quick scan of real estate comps for any area.  I would like to look at some points about foreclosure investing.

First question to ask is what do you know about the property in foreclosure?  What do the real estate comps tell you about the property and the homes surrounding?  What did you learn by walking the property?  Which areas would need to be completely redone or which areas qualify for a touch up here and there?

Banks and lenders do not like the foreclosure process. Their goal is to sell the property as quickly as possible so that they do not pay the taxes and other expenses involving carrying the property. All they want is the money to cover the current debt. Often times this can be at 65% of the actual market value. As you begin your quest to become a foreclosure investor you need to be well aware of the market value for the properties you are looking at.  Remember you make your profit when you buy,  so go make it happen.

Since you have your plan written down, when issues arise you will be able to navigate them because you have planned for them.  Focus your time on the next progressive step and do not waste time.  Time is money, anyway you want to slice it. The reason that most people fail in real estate is because they don’t have a plan.

Overall, today’s take away is to set your goal(s), make your plan on how you will achieve them, and work your plan.  This will take some of the stress out of real estate investing and help you to make solid choices each step along the way. So if you’re thinking of getting into real estate investing, have a plan, and stick to it.

The Real Estate Investing Challenge

Real Estate Investing ChallengeForeclosure investing is a great way to build your income, it can be a challenge, but one that you can be prepared for.  There are many profits to be made in real estate each year, this is evident by a quick scan of real estate comps for any area.  I would like to look at some points about foreclosure investing.

First question to ask is what do you know about the property in foreclosure?  What do the real estate comps tell you about the property and the homes surrounding?  What did you learn by walking the property?  Which areas would need to be completely redone or which areas qualify for a touch up here and there?

Banks and lenders do not like the foreclosure process. Their goal is to sell the property as quickly as possible so that they do not pay the taxes and other expenses involving carrying the property. All they want is the money to cover the current debt. Often times this can be at 65% of the actual market value. As you begin your quest to become a foreclosure investor you need to be well aware of the market value for the properties you are looking at.  Remember you make your profit when you buy,  so go make it happen.

Moving Forward Part Two

Moving ForwardLast time, we discussed some tips I feel are important to keep in mind when starting out in real estate investing.  Today,  let’s take a look at a few more tips to use.  We know that working with good real estate comps is key, but it is my hope that these tips will be helpful as well.

My fourth tip is to take advantage of those experts that are around you.  The people that know their particular areas of expertise and can help you achieve your goals.  This team of experts will help to eliminate the risk of your inexperience and lack of knowledge. You can get to the next level in your real estate investment career when you have the expertise of people who already know how to navigate their way through a deal.

Fifth, remember that marketing is an important part of any business. Taking your real estate business to the next level means you must develop your marketing skills by putting them into action. For example, I started marketing via Twitter, and Facebook; while I still use those avenues I have added direct mail as well. Basically, I took one marketing strategy, learned it, and honed it until it produced a reward for me. Then I started working other forms of marketing.

Lastly, the power of positivity can make all the difference.  Your positive attitude will push you forward when you may feel like giving up.  You must believe in yourself before any one else will.  Being consistent in your efforts will lead you to success because you did not give up.

No matter where you are in your real estate career, these tips will help you get to the next level. When you combine education, expertise, marketing, and a positive attitude, you’re well on your way to success.

The Importance of Strategy

The Importance of StrategyWhen stepping into the world of real estate investing, you have to have a plan. There is really no one plan that is either good or bad. But you have to have some plan, regardless of what it is, and it will always need to include use of real estate comps for your deals. Today, I want to talk about some things to keep a focus on when making your plan.

The first thing first, decide on a realistic goal and a time frame and what you can get completed in that certain amount of time. It doesn’t matter what the time frame is.  Maybe the goal is to get your first house under contract or first bid accepted in 30 days. Once the plan is made, you must stick to it.

After you have decided on what you want to accomplish and the timeline you want to accomplish it in, the next step is to actually begin putting that plan into action. I will say, that the plan is to buy a property for rehab and sell in the 6 months. The first thing you need to do is actively look for a fixer upper. It will not jump onto your books. Next, how much work, in both time and dollars, are you going to put into this property? Make your budget and stick to it.  Being firm with your budget will be a essential part of your rehab plan.

Be wise with your time, don’t allow distractions to keep you away from the timeline goal you set. Since you have your plan written down, when issues arise you will be able to navigate them because you have planned for them.  Focus your time on the next progressive step and do not waste time.  Time is money, anyway you want to slice it.
