What real estate strategy do you make money with?  Reply with quote  

I was just wondering ... what investors prefer making money with in real estate nowadays?
I am personally involved in short sales, note buying, REO (with occasional REO trading,) and flipping both commercial and residential. But I would like to know around the world, what other investors are working with: kind of a survey Smile

I'm taking the snail approach to real estate investing. Once we reduce our primary mortgage on our house down to 50%, then I will start saving up a 20% down payment on a house to flip with 20k in liquid to pay for upgrades. I don't want to borrow to much.

That is Right  Reply with quote  

To start with real estate business, you must have a lot of money. But remember that when you borrow something, your putting yourself in a quicksand of debt. Better to get out of it.

It is true that the debt will going to consider here but above all it is also necessary to look for several other things.

Constructive debt and bad debt  Reply with quote  

Well, in my opinion there is consctructive debt (debt to acquire investments, like real estate) and bad debt (like a car loan or credit card.)
If you leverage the constructive debt carefully, you should not worry about incurring this type of debt: most real estate is purchased with OPM (other people's money) not cash.
It really depends what your goals are - if you want to purchase a lot of property, you have to probably use OPM, so with some due diligence, you can be on your way pretty quickly.

Each state is different in how they regulate various business practices.Your best bet is to fully understand your state laws or check with your attorney.The real estate broker gets the same commission as in any transaction whether it is financed or all cash.The real estate market has fallen apart in many parts of the country.

Good investment action does not await on belief or aggravating to time the markets. No amount what you hear, no one has a accurate and constant almanac in bazaar timing that beats the markets decidedly over the continued term. If they did theyвЂd accomplish a ton of money investing, and they would adumbrate their secrets, not allotment them.

Unless you lose your job and cannot make the mortgage payments.... Most Realestate deals that are profitable are done with mostly cash.

The way he could have done that is by controlling how much he paid for the property when he bought it.Agents make more commissions working with investors who buy more properties then picky home buyers who can't make simple decisions.Dean wrote this book specifically to help people make money, and make it fast, during these depressed economic times.

There are plenty of strategies (or recipes as I call them) to win. One that you can use is "buying, fixing, and re-selling". Remember this is but one-way to win. The first thing to realize about real estate is there is always a current value. Unless we are speculating, the current value is the value. NOT what the home was worth last year, or what it might be worth next year.
