Here are three simple guidelines that must be followed if you plan to succeed at real estate investing. It’s not everything, of course, but at the very least, you must be willing to commit to these things if you want to become a successful real estate investor.
Shall we get stared?
Acknowledge the Basics
Real estate investing involves acquisition, holding, and sale of rights in real property with the expectation of using cash inflows for potential future cash outflows and thereby generating a favorable rate of return on that investment.
More advantageous then stock investments (which usually require more investor equity) real estate investments offer the advantage to leverage a real estate property heavily. In other words, with an investment in real estate, you can use other people’s money to magnify your rate of return and control a much larger investment than would be possible otherwise. Moreover, with rental property, you can virtually use other people’s money to pay off your loan.
Selling real estate is always a topic of interest for any home owner. The average American will sell a house every five to seven years. Given a 90 year life expectancy and assuming you buy your first house at age 30. You can expect to selling 8 to 12 houses in your life time.
“How to choose realestate”
When it comes to selling a home it can be a very hectic and emotional time. There is a lot of money, memories and family history involved with selling a home. That is why it is best to take an outsider approach to selling real estate. Try to shake off the emotions and think like a potential buyer looking for a new home.
“The Great Real Estate”
There are typically only 3 ways to sell real estate and some will leave you with more money and create a faster sale than others. There are advantages and disadvantages to
Personal development is an important part of keeping pace with changes in the real estate industry. Being a master at selling and finessing the details of showing, closing and hand-holding are basic at best compared to what really sells, and that’s your personality. When you think about it, when people refer others to you, they sell your personality as much as your skill. A referral is not a one note deal. People usually say, “Call Jim. He knows a lot about probate, and he knows a lot about Victorian staircases”. Or “I’ll have Stella call you. She’s with a new office now, but I remember that she loves cats and will recommend the perfect property for yours” Being proficient in a subject that enhances your personality is just one little arrow to put in your quiver to distinguish yourself from other agents. Is it necessary? No. But if you want to learn something new about anything under the sun – even archery – go to Udemy.
Udemy offers courses online in more subjects than the average university. They offer courses designed to up your chances at gaining professional designations and accreditations and some courses, like their

While most qualified homebuyers with a ready down payment and good credit history are more than welcome by any Sarasota real estate agent, a real estate investor is seen as a pain. In fact, most Sarasota real estate agents consider real estate investors a complete headache when it comes to purchasing any property.
There are two main reasons for this…
First of all, like any businessperson, a real estate agent likes making a quick and hassle-free profit. Secondly, many real estate agents do not have the experience, expertise, or willingness to handle the creative deals that real estate investors need.
Nevertheless, real estate investors have no choice but to use an agent because that is the only place where they can access the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
Therefore, it is in the best interest of the investor to get on the “good” side of a real estate agent. Here are a few tips…
1. Offer a fast closing. Real estate agents love “quick” deals. A realtor would much rather have the chance of making a commission in 2 weeks as compared

Sydney and NSW Real Estate Investing have hit many obstacles in the past 24 months. The latest obstacle has changed the ‘way the real estate investor does business.’ Petrol prices are at an all time high in NSW and travelling in Sydney has never looked so expensive! Real Estate suicide is found in prospecting for properties the old fashioned way. The savvy Real Estate Investor would have noted the more intensified utilization of the internet to obtain properties.
Real Estate sites such as realestate.com.au and domain.com.au have become house hold names amongst every day Australians. Sure, it’s nice to go to your traditional Real Estate shop front and obtain brochures etc. However, most of these shop fronts have their own websites and many Real Estate companies/agents no longer have shop fronts. Many Real Estate agents run their business and promote their properties totally online.
The Real Estate Investor therefore has that option to stay home and search for their properties online. Utilizing RP Data tools and others, research can also be conducted online. Though for a small cost, the real estate investor can have detailed information concerning a particular property
If you’re a new real estate investor who has thought about real estate investing but have been due to a nagging feeling that you are certain the market will collapse once you step in and you will lose all your money; guess what, you’re not alone.
Fear grips every new investor; and no one successfully investing in real estate today would state otherwise. It’s common for potential real estate investors to miss out on incredible opportunities for no other reason but an overwhelming sense of fear.
Okay, so let’s address some of the most common fears and see whether we can help you to become less anxious, and maybe take the plunge into real estate investing after all.
Negative Cash Flow
Hey, the idea behind investing in real estate is to make enough money to cover operating expenses and loan payment with some left over to deposit in the bank. Having to feed a property won’t cut it; no investor wants to feed a rental property.
Believe it or not, this fear one might be the easiest to manage because it’s
A real estate agent is a person that is used as an expert to facilitate the selling of real estate. In my opinion, a real estate agent should be open to new things, including innovative marketing ideas and cutting-edge changes that impact buyers and sellers. A real estate agent should be someone who listens to buyers, sellers and renters to figure out what the public hates about agents and proactively make changes in their own business plan accordingly. A real estate agent should have business hours that are applicable to other professionals that are paid thousands of dollars per transaction.
A real estate agent should practice their skills by using them everyday. A real estate agent should not be part-time in the business. This means they should not have a full-time job and sell real estate when they need some extra money. A real estate agent should be skilled at keeping their cool when something goes wrong. A real estate agent should be professional and never hang up on a client or another real estate agent, no matter what was said or done.
A real estate agent should be responsible
Buying real estate with nothing down sounds like a great deal and an amazing arrangement. After all, many people stay out of the real estate market and shun it as an investment option simply because they don’t have the large down payments needed for investment properties or private ownership. But as the recent housing crunch and mortgage crisis have both shown, it pays to be careful and cautious when it comes to real estate deals and how they work.
If you are entering the real estate market with little or no money as a down payment because you do not have the cash and with the idea of flipping the home for a quick profit, think again. Mortgage companies that have offered real estate with nothing down deals have learned over the past few years that sometimes when a person cannot produce a down payment this is a warning sign of their ability to continue with mortgage payments down the road. Other lenders have followed suit, and many real estate with nothing down deals have dried up recently, or lenders are going back to the practice of at least requiring a small percentage
Probate real estate investing involves buying property from probate estates. Probate is the process used to inventory and distribute assets owned by someone who has died. Depending on the complexity of the estate, the probate process can last between six months to three years. During this time the estate is responsible for maintaining the property and paying mortgage payments, utilities and insurance.
Probate real estate investing provides an opportunity for estate administrators to sell real estate holdings. This is particularly beneficial for administrators who are struggling to pay mortgage payments or maintain upkeep on property held in probate.
The first step of probate real estate investing requires a visit to the local courthouse where probate matters are handled. When an estate is placed into probate it becomes a matter of public record. The majority of information regarding the estate can be located in the decedent’s Last Will and Testament. Typically, the Will designates the estate executor and outlines how the decedent wishes to have their personal belongings and financial assets distributed.
If the decedent dies without executing a Will (intestate), probate records will indicate who has been
IRA investments are suffering right now. The stock market is plunging, the real estate market is a disaster, and the economy is wobbly. So why would you consider an IRA real estate investment in such tough times?
Any time is a good time for IRA real estate investments, with a proviso. And it’s a big proviso. You have to choose the right real estate investment for your IRA. Choose wrong, for either an IRA real estate investment or any other IRA investment, and you’ve got a disaster. But choose the right real estate investment for your IRA and you’ll set yourself up well for a comfortable retirement.
That’s equally true now, when times are tough, because there are some excellent IRA real estate investments available if you know where they are.
IRA investing isn’t easy. Of course you could do what 96% of the population do with their IRA investments. Leave the investing to your custodian, and if you do chances are that like everyone else you’ll get a return of around 4% – 9% per annum. Not the sort of return that is going to result
You’ve got a Roth IRA and you’re thinking a lot lately about returns on your IRA when times get tough, like now. One of the best investments for any IRA, including a Roth IRA, is in real estate.
Believe it or not Roth IRA investments in real estate are STILL the single best investment you can make right now in 2008, when the economy is terrible and the real estate market in turmoil.
But surely you wouldn’t make a Roth IRA real estate investment in the current market? The real estate market is in meltdown. Why would you invest your retirement plan in a real estate market that looks a little like the Titanic, going down.
Real estate as an investment is alive in well in 2008, whether you’ve got a Roth IRA or any sort of employer sponsored retirement plan.
Of course you always need to examine your plan and see what investments are allowed. With many plans you have a limited or non existent right to invest your own retirement funds yourself, or if you do you can only invest in a
I’ve heard the statement many times. “You know, I’ve been wanting to get into real estate, but…”
How do you finish that sentence?
“I don’t know how or where to get the money.”
“It’s too risky.”
“Is it biblical?”
“It would take too much time.”
“What if it doesn’t work?”
“It seems like real estate investors take advantage of people.”
“What about a real estate bubble or a market downturn?”
“I’ll start when I get in a better financial situation.”
“I don’t want to deal with clogged up toilets in the middle of the night.”
These thoughts and many others can prevent us from achieving God’s best for our lives and realizing our full potential.
Whether your desire is to quit your job and get into real estate full-time, or you just want to add some appreciating assets to help in your retirement, or restart in real estate because you did it the wrong way, I believe everyone should have some form of real estate in their portfolio!
We know that real estate investing is one of the best avenues to
Choosing a real estate company is perhaps the single most important choice you can make when buying or selling a property in the U.K. The purchase or sale of a home is often the largest financial transaction the average person will make. Doesn’t make sense to have a capable and experienced real estate firm as your side to guide you though what can be a complicated process, both legal and financial? Although realty services are not a required component of purchase or sale transactions, real estate companies can help you avoid many of the pitfalls and obstacles associated with buying or selling your home. In this article, we’ll present some tips for choosing a real estate sales agent or company.
How to Select a Real Estate Company
Although the likelihood of experiencing problems with a real estate transaction is low, a real estate agency can coordinate all the aspects of the sale, including home inspection, property survey and legal and financial services. A good place to start the selection process is to ask your family and friends whether they’ve ever used real estate firms to buy either residential real property
What Causes A Perfect Storm?
Well that’s the million dollar question, isn’t it?
What I deem a perfect storm is a set of circumstances that occur once, maybe twice in a lifetime that offers unparalleled opportunity to purchase undervalued real estate at unnaturally depressed prices. There was one similar opportunity in the late 1980s, early 1990s when the RTC (Resolution Trust Corporation – a government-run entity used to liquidate primarily foreclosed commercial assets) had one of the biggest fire-sales of commercial real estate in US history. This was a time that fortunes were made in the acquisition of overly distressed real estate assets. At that time, the market collapse was caused by 3 main factors (1) change in US tax laws affecting real estate investors, (2) Overbuilding, (3) The Savings & Loan banking scandal and fraudulent activity of mortgage lenders and appraisers.
So what’s causing the Perfect Storm Today?
(1) Massive residential property speculation in 2003-2006
(2) Too much credit available to purchase and finance real estate which was overused by lenders and uncreditworthy borrowers
(3) The current overall US market decline/recession that is
Buying a house – The realistic approach
This article is not about the secrets of buying a rental property for no money down and half the price of the market value of the house. I am not Tom Vu or Don Lapre and I am not in jail.
In Canada, the no money down home did use to exist, but not anymore. Some banks and/or lenders were willing to lend you the 5% down payment so that you don’t have to pay a dime out of your own pockets to purchase a home. However, given the current financial situation with tighter lending restrictions, there will be no bank or lenders who can do that in Canada.
The buying home for half price did use to exist as well. At one point, foreclosures in Canada would allow foreclosed homes to be sold at rock bottom prices. The new law, which has been in placed for many years now require the homes be sold at the highest possible price for foreclosed homes or else the lenders could be sued. Hence, sometimes foreclosed homes sell higher because Canadians have the
the big hot topic on the news as the current economy. What is a real estate investor to do in a down market? What can a real estate investor do to increase their portfolio? Can I continue being a real estate investor in this economy/market? What are we going to do to fix the current economy? Who’s going to fix the current economy? How much money do we have to give large companies in order to fix their bottom line? Who’s to blame? How was the President-elect going to save us? Which new political party is going to come in and save the day? And most importantly, who is in the steer this boat to the Promised Land?
Here’s the answer: You the Real Estate investor/small business owner!
In the last 200 years of the economic growth of the United States of America, we have never faced an economic challenge like the one we have now. Our economy the last 50 to 60 years has slowly started to phase out from being in a commie based on manufacturing goods to becoming a service driven economy. Perfect example of this is
Every real estate agent has used some form of real estate postcard marketing over the span of their career. Yet many of these agents waste thousands of dollars a year because they don’t make smart decisions about who to send their real estate mailings to and what the mailings should contain.
As an agent for the past decade, I have made a fantastic living by using real estate mailings to generate expired real estate listings. This article will explain how I do it and how you can use real estate postcard marketing to beat your competition and dominate your local market. The best part is, if you use these steps, you’ll save thousands of dollars every year on your mailings and sell more houses than you ever have!
Step 1: Target Your Real Estate Mailings
The biggest mistake agents make when starting a marketing campaign is to make their address list far too big. The common thinking among agents is that the more people they mail to, the more business they will receive. While this may be true, few agents know how to mail to a much smaller list and still generate the same amount of
