How to Begin Investing In Real Estate

Build Your Wealth as a Real Estate Investor

If you are considering investing in real estate and you do not know where to start, here are a few ideas on how to build your wealth in Real Estate.

Investing in Real Estate

Investing in Real Estate

NB: BUY AT THE RIGHT PRICE AND YOU WILL ALWAYS MAKE MONEY

If you have a down payment and you can afford a mortgage on your income and the mortgage would be less than you could receive as a rental, then you be in positive cash flow from the beginning.

For Example:

Standard Purchase

If you can purchase a townhouse consisting of two or three bedrooms for say $120,000 and you can put down a 20% down payment ($24,000), qualify for $96,000 mortgage with a repayment of  less than $950 including property taxes, Insurance and HOA levy and you can let the townhouse out for $1300 per month, you have a positive cash flow of $350,00 per month from the beginning. With increased rental each year, this can be a great start to your investment property. Set aside $50 per month for repairs and maintenance.

In year 2, you could add another property and a year later another one. The trick is saving up the down payment and then qualifying for the loan. It’s definitely do-able. Perhaps you could refinance your existing home and take some equity out or perhaps you could refinance a car or boat that you own or sell them and invest the money in income producing properties.

Seller Finance

Another wonderful opportunity is to find properties with Seller finance options. A seller who is prepared to finance is a keen seller. He may even allow you a small down payment and negotiate a great payment option for the balance of the money. “Tired investors” will prefer to self finance and have a fixed income rather than look after tenants and new leases and lower returns from the bank.

Foreclosures

There are still foreclosures available and working with the bank you often can get a lower down payment and a mortgage from them on the property.

Tips

  • Don’t buy an investment property in a different State or more than an hours drive from where you live. You want to be able to look after your investment without hassles and without having to spend a fortune on travel.
  • Research and get to know the area you wish to purchase in. It’s very important to be comfortable with your investment area. By seeing the locals you will know what kind of tenant you are likely to expect to find.
  • Always buy an investment property in a safe location. Don’t buy in declining areas, look for areas that are on the rebound and up and coming.
  • Build up 3 months mortgage payments on your investment property before putting the excess funds into your own cash flow. If you don’t have a tenant for a month at least it won’t eat into your own income and cause you stress.
  • Research and interview various mortgage brokers and see what they offer you. Only once you have done your homework, then build a relationship into the future.
  • There are tax advantages to owning a property. Make it your business to find out what you can claim, what is to your advantage and how this investment is going to help you in the long run.
  • Don’t buy vacant land for investment, unless you are getting it at a great price. It is better to have an investment income than none at all.
  • Always, always check references for potential tenants. Google the person, look for them on Facebook and feel comfortable with your choice.

There are many opportunities to begin building your wealth in real estate. We would love to help investors find those properties on a regular basis. If you are an investor and would like to contact us, or if this is a first time purchase, we have the expertise to assist you.

Why You Should Help Your Real Estate Agent with Social Media

Why You Should Help Your Real Estate Agent With Social Media

Social Media has become a trendy, and very successful means of marketing real estate. So whether you’re selling a home or buying real estate, you should get your head around the concept of social media, as well as the three most successful social media sites that can be used for this purpose: LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.

Once you do this, you can help your real estate agent market your home or try and find a suitable property using social media.

Social Media

The term social media involves the use of various electronic and Internet tools for the purpose of sharing and discussing information. In essence it’s a powerful way to share knowledge with blinding speed, and as a result, all types of markets – including real estate – are getting smarter, and operating faster. 

Social media allows those marketing property, specifically real estate agents, to connect directly with consumers on a one-to-one level. It also enables them to get to many more people, as those sharing their sites and messages pass ideas on to other people. This is where you can play an important role, by sharing their marketing campaign with your friends … who share with their friends … and so on. 

Successful Social Media Sites and Networking Tools

LinkedIn is a social networking site that is mostly used by professionals. It has more than 225-million members from more than 200 countries, with 74-million members in the US alone. Real estate agents find this to be an invaluable networking tool that connects them to other professionals. 

Twitter is an online social networking and micro-blogging service with more than 500-million users generating more than 340-million tweets very day. So if you are selling a home you can tweet to your followers … who you can encourage to tweet to their followers … drawing attention to each new initiative your real estate agent launches. 

Facebook is an online social networking site that enables people to stay in contact with one another. In addition to personal profiles, there are common-interest user groups and business pages. There’s nothing to stop you from starting a FB page for your home for sale, or asking your agent to do this for you. Alternatively, you can help promote your agent’s FB page where your home is listed. 

Benefits of Using Social Media to Market Real Estate

One of the benefits of using social media is that most people are distrustful of advertisements – and this applies as much to those buying a motor vehicle to those buying real estate – but people in general trust recommendations from other consumers. And the various social media allow people to give direct recommendations. So whether you’re selling a home or buying real estate, it really is a way to go!

All three of the social media networks mentioned above are growing beyond belief, though FB has the largest following, followed by Twitter, and then LinkedIn. 

The keys to success when using any social media are:

  • Don’t spam
  • Always add value
  • Connect with people
  • Be personable
  • Create communities
  • Join communities

You also need a strategy for successful marketing of real estate using the social media. So be sure to choose a real estate agent who understands social media and knows how to make it work for you.
