Real Estate Investors - Where's the Best Deal
1.Gurus and new guy investor trainers across the country are
teaching new investors how to buy 2 to 3 or 10 to 15 houses per
month using some straight forward techniques and some convoluted
inside-out upside-down tactics to control real estate....
Here's a simple method of getting to know your real estate investing market, which is VITALLY IMPORTANT before you can know if a property/price is worthy of calling a 'deal' or not...
This 'LAZY' method of market research reveals some amazing facts about the real estate investing market in your area and it works for any area there is....
Take a local newspaper (you can get many of them online, for free, nowadays) and simply count the number of 'For Sale' and 'For Rent' ads, keeping track of them for later reference.
Usually, Sunday and Wednesday papers are the 'biggest real estate investing days', so, for now, just watch these.
Keep track of the number of ads for a few weeks and watch what is happening to your market (hold on, now, we're coming to the part about you turning all this research into a really great real estate investment).
Keeping more detailed records (what price for a 3/2/2 in the SW part of town is being offered for sale and rent wise, etc.) will yield tremendous knowledge, but, for now, just to get started in your real estate investing, stick with the basic 'total ads'
Real Estate Website Scams
Many still say the Internet is like the Wild West. When it comes to the proliferation of scams, this is certainly true! As webmaster for over two dozen legal, real estate, and other business oriented websites, we receive a lot of email and phone...
After a few weeks, you'll start to see 'trends' in the real estate investing potential of your area - maybe the number of For Sale is going way up and the number of For Rent is going way down...
In such a market, what are you doing looking for 'flips' as real estate investments anyway?
Such a trend clearly shows that there are fewer people buying and a high demand for rentals (perhaps a good time for you to pick up some deals for your long-term real estate investments).
You see, the newspaper (and the active market) has shown you what you need to be looking for (or not), and this is certainly a good indication that there are few Buyers (whether for themselves or as real estate investments).
Maybe it is because of some local condition (like the closing of a major employer or something), or it could be more national (like the interest rates rising quickly, etc.) - i.e., it could be something you can control, but most likely it isn't.
However, it doesn't mean you can't make real estate investing money in such a market!
You can certainly make money in a real estate
Real Estate Investing and Goal Setting
What is the primary reason for success most people have that
seems to elude unsuccessful people? Goal setting is the primary
reason for success. Lack of proper planning is the number one
reason for failure. Proper goal setting involves setting...
investing market where there are few 'For Rent' and lots of 'For Sale' properties (even if you have poor credit and no money...)
This is a perfect time to be doing Lease Purchase/Options! Yes, it is a great time to simply make CA$H in your real estate investing business.
And, if (and WHEN) the real estate investment market changes again, you will already be on top of it because you'll keep this simple method in mind - just watching the total number of ads in the paper - something anyone can do (but so few will...) and you'll know what the next real estate investing 'trend' will be - maybe back to 'flipping', or maybe something else...
Just one of the major reasons that you need more than one 'tool' in your real estate investing toolbox.....
Here's to your successful (and LAZY) real estate investments...
