People have heard about the magical world of real estate investing for years. However, there hasn’t been a great resource of material that tells you how to start or addresses any of the lingering concerns many have about the career. Before you dive head first into investing, here are the six basic questions you should ask about the career and the necessary pieces to make you successful.

Who?

This is the people part of your job. Who will you be marketing to? Will they have the ability to pay for the property after the type of renovations you want to perform? In addition, who are you going to work with? Unless you are going to do all of the house hunting, fixing up, managing, or selling yourself, you are going to need other people. Will you work with one person or an entire team of individuals? A good team will include your real estate agent, real estate lawyer, title company, contractor, financial lender, and more.

What?

This section of questions dives into every aspect of the business. What properties are you going to look for, and what criteria should they meet? What methods are you going to use to find potential clients or buyers? What ways are you going to attract private investors to you purchase investment properties? Even what are you going to do to handle all of the phone calls and other correspondence that will need to be taken care of?

When?

The when section of questions all have to deal with time and your management of time. When are you going to work? When are you going to set up an office? When are you going to get a mentor? When will you be a success? It all comes down to planning.

Where?

The where section is one that is harder to answer than any other. However, this section defines what your entire business is going to be. Where are you going to buy properties?  Where are you going to get your financial backing? Where will you set up your office?

Why?

This section of questions looks for the reasons behind each of your moves and motives. Why do you want to invest? Why are you choosing a specific neighborhood? Why do you want a specific mentor? When you know the answers to this section of questions, you are ready to start investing.

Asking these basic types of questions will help you to figure out not only your motives but how prepared you are to start real estate investing.

Success isn’t measured by the money you make. Success is measured by how long you are able to stay in the game and what goals you are able to achieve.  Every industry has secrets that help to insure success. Real estate investing success starts with knowledge starts with these secrets.

Business Skills

In order to run a great business, you have to have the skills necessary to perform the job. For real estate investment, you must be able to find a home, purchase it, renovate it, and manage it successfully to bring in a monthly cash flow. Each one of these is an important skill in itself. Doing them well together makes your real estate business a success.

Knowledge and Experience

You can never pay enough to have the knowledge learned from experience. There are lessons and skills that you can only get by living through them or by learning from people that have lived through them. Take advantage of mentors and others that are willing to share their knowledge with you. Their little diamonds of information can save you a lifetime of hardship and years of mistakes.

Quality Offers

Learn to make a sound, quality offer. This sounds easier than it is. This is one that the seller will consider honest, ethical, and fair considering current market value and the economic status of the community. Without a great offer, your real estate investment career isn’t going anywhere. The more offers you make the greater your chances are of getting a great deal.

True Property Value

It is no secret that some people inflate the asking prices of their properties. It is in hope that they will actually get that amount for their home. Every real estate investor knows that true property value is the price a property can be sold for in a reasonable period of time. Usually, this number can be obtained by using comps of similar properties or by hiring an appraiser to come and take a look.

Attitude

A lot of missing pieces in your skillset can be made up by having the right attitude. Know the customer is always right. Treat the customer well even if they don’t take your offer, and always do what is right. In the end, your company with have more business referrals. It all starts with a positive attitude and a customer oriented, open hand approach.

Ways To Market Your Real Estate Investment Property

Unless you are in retail and marketing, most people do not understand the impact that the right advertising can have. The quicker you can get information about your real estate investment properties into the right hands, the faster your properties are sold, rented, or listed.  How to do it perplexes most individuals. So for the confused, here are some great ways to market your real estate investment property.

A Great Yard

Nothing sells like packaging. That’s why businesses spend millions every year making sure they have the best colors, logos, and designs to make their product appealing. Make sure that your real estate investment properties have the right packaging. Each must have a perfect yard, mailbox, driveway, front door, and house numbers.

Staged Indoors

A professional staged indoors is like a multi-million dollar commercial for what your home could be for the next buyer. Soft music, inviting fragrances, in addition to bright lights make your home feel welcoming. Carefully arranged furniture can highlight key areas of your home to make your potential buyers see their potential in your home.

Signage

Your property may be perfect, but no one will know it’s for sale if you don’t tell them. Make sure there is signage leading to your property with directions. In addition, your yard should have a brightly colored sign that says your home is For Sale by a flexible and motivated seller with no money down. The sign should have pictures of the inside and outside of the home, and there should be a tube or compartment to hold flyers about the home.

Advertisements

There are a large number of places you can put ads about your real estate investment property without costing a lot of money. The MLS and FSOB sites are great places to start. Real and online virtual newspapers have classified ad sections. Free real estate listing sites, real estate association sites, The Green sheet and Penny Saver, and eBay are also commonly visited places to find real estate for sale. If you haven’t set up your own website or social media pages, do it fast. These are also great places for posting marketing information about your properties.

In real estate investing, the right coach or mentor can make a huge difference in your success. Their knowledge and experience can keep you from making costly mistakes. Real estate coaches help you to set goals for yourself and keep you accountable. They lend you all of their expertise to help you succeed. Since they are helping you become the best real estate investor possible, you need the best mentor possible.
As you look for your perfect real estate mentor, here are some of the important characteristics he should have:

Experience – A mentor should be a true investor with years of experience putting his own money on the line in investments. Some investing mentors have little or no experience investing their own money. They have had no loss of their own money. These mentors are no good.

Real Properties – Every investing mentor you consider should have actual properties that you can drive by and check up on. Being able to check up on the properties make a big difference than just have properties in theory or on paper. You have to learn to manage properties, teams, and clients. The only way to do this is to actually go through the process with an investment property. In addition, your chosen mentor should be highly regarded in your industry and have lots of experience dealing with the local government.

Besides their professional experience, your mentor should be someone that is truly interested in helping you to succeed. The two of you should be able to talk easily and trust each other. Your mentor should make time for you and being willing to work with you to help you grow.

Most importantly, your real estate investing mentor will be honest with you. They will talk to you about the work and sweat it takes to invest. They also will refrain from making promises they cannot keep. Each successful investor knows that new investors should go in with their eyes open and not with their heads full of unrealistic promises.

It doesn’t matter if your real estate investments are mobile homes, apartments, or houses. The biggest factor that effects the value of any property is curb appeal. If you want to increase the value of your real estate investments, you have to convince your tenants that maintaining their property is important.

Incentive Programs

School teachers can tell you that nothing works better than a little extrinsic motivation. If you want your tenants to immediately take part in increasing your property’s value, you have to give them a little inspiration or something to work for. This can be a “Yard of the Month” program complete with an award-winning sign. Other ideas include a drawing for a gift certificate or big ticket item. The idea behind the program is to review each property and to pick one or two that are outstanding.

Set Them Up for Success

Many real estate investors just leave their tenants to their own devices. The fact is if you want someone to be successful at something, you have to give them the tools and resources to do that.

Start by providing your tenants with a list of the items that must be done to make the properties acceptable or even stellar.

Next, provide them the resources to clean up their act. Some people are physically unable to do all of the work needed to fix up their properties, or they don’t have time to do it. You may offer a free dumpster once or twice a year for residents that don’t have trucks to clear out their extra junk. In addition, you may have a contractor or yard maintenance company come through and give you an estimate for work that is needed on each property.

Then, allow your clients to choose to fix their properties on their own or pay for the services provided by your third party company. Many of your clients will take you up on this simply for the convenience.

Your tenants want to have pride in the place they live. Why not set them up so it helps our real estate investment bottom line too?

After renovations, many real estate investors find themselves standing on the main floor of their investment property thinking, “Now what?” The next few steps can make the difference between making money now on your real estate investment and making money years from now. Before you make the wrong move, here’s a guide to get you on the way to quicker cash flow.

Start With an Agent

It doesn’t matter if you are going to rent, lease, or sell your real estate investment property. A real estate agent knows the area that your property is in. He can tell you how much it will reasonably rent or sell f. On top of that, they will handle all the property showings for you. This leaves you with more time on your hands to handle other aspects of your real estate investment business.

Advertising

The real estate agent you hire should handle the majority of your property advertising. When you meet, he should have a plan drawn that shows all of the ways your property will be showcased. This will include online and real newspaper ads, flyers and e-flyers, online real estate sites, social media marketing, and more. The more pictures and descriptions of your home are seen, the better your chances are of getting your property rented or sold.

Upkeep and Maintenance

Although you renovated the home, an empty home can quickly get messy. It is a great idea to clean the house and mow the yard once a week. If you are too busy to do this yourself, most cleaning companies and yard companies will do this for relatively little expense. The important thing is that the home and yard look well taken care of until the property is sold or rented. Once it is sold, it is the new owner’s responsibility. If it is rented, those details will need to be worked out in the rental agreement. If possible, always request that the real estate agent do a walkthrough of the property before any showings. That way, potential problems may be spotted and addressed before potential buyers or renters see them.

By following these first few simple steps you should be on your way to real estate investment success. Next time, we’ll look at what to do with your first offer and property sale.

The Next Step

So, you’ve renovated, gotten an agent, maintained the place, and advertised. Now you are watching the endless line of buyers or renters walk in and out your door. What in the world is a real estate investor supposed to do next?

Incentives

If you are renting the place or selling the place your next step should be incentives. These are the little perks and privileges that buyers or renters are only going to receive if they work with you. A steak with a two dollar off coupon looks even better.  There are little things that you can add to make your real estate investment property stand out as the better deal amongst the competition. This could be a renter’s incentive program that you offer or maybe a free TV with every home sold. In either case, buyers and renters are going to want to work with you.

Offers

If you have staged your home correctly and given the right incentives, offers should start pouring in your door. The temptation is to scream yes to the first piece of paper without asking any questions or doing any examination. Make sure your potential buyers or tenants are submitting proof of their financial ability to pay with an offer or contract. In addition, you also will want to run background checks and credit checks. It may sound a little paranoid, but these checks can prevent you from getting ripped off or having a property that you are relisting in just a few months.

Negotiating

If you are renting out your property, you probably won’t do any negotiating. If you are leasing to own or selling, negotiating is a vital part of the selling process. The way most buyers work is to offer you below your asking price expecting you to come back with an offer somewhere between yours and theirs. It’s a cat and mouse game. If you do not come back with a counteroffer, there is a possibility that you will lose out on potential thousands of dollars. Your potential buyer may also feel like there is something wrong with the property if you do not try to negotiate. You don’t always have to haggle over price; it could be something as simple as inspections, terms, conditions, or occupancy dates.

Once you reach an agreeable contract, the closing process should be pretty simple. Once the inspections, appraisals, financing, and title clear, the last steps are getting the signatures and waiting on the buyer’s check.

The next steps after listing should be easy. If they aren’t, you may need to reevaluate your pricing and incentives to get the right renter or buyer through the door.

When you walk into someone’s home, it is hard not to notice how clean the floor is or how sparkling the windows and mirrors look. By the same token, your real estate investment properties need to look just as amazing. Otherwise, your rental properties and properties for sale may sit a long time on the market before anyone takes an interest in them. Here are a few well kept secrets to get your real estate investment properties in tip top shape.

Start by hiring a cleaning team. They will make sure everything from top to bottom is wiped down, scrubbed, and disinfected. If this isn’t possible, make sure you take the time to wipe down and clean every room.

Checklist

The best way to take on your own professional cleaning is to make a checklist for each room. Mark off each item in the room as you get through it. This keeps anything from getting overlooked.

Problem Areas

Epoxy Paint is amazing. This paint is a mixture of epoxy glue and paint which creates a moisture resistant enamel surface. It is able to adhere to just about anything to create a hard to damage painted surface. There are special versions made for every type of surface, including metal and appliances. These paints can be used to touch up or repaint surfaces so they look like new. Make sure to get the right paint for the surface you are painting.

Cleaning Tools like the Magic Eraser are amazing. These micro sponges use simply water and elbow grease to scrub away dirt, grease, stains, etc. They can be used on any surface without having to worry about damage.

Spotless, shining mirrors are easily seen but hard to get clean. The secret to these is newspaper or newsprint. Simply tear off a sheet of the Sunday funnies and crumple. Then, simply rub the surface in a circular motion. This removes all of the water spots, dirt, grime, and residue that are on the glass surface.

These are a small sampling of the professional secrets available from cleaning companies to real estate investors.
