Many investors consider investing in foreclosures but there are many other investments on the market that are more profitable.

Dallas, Texas HomeVestors is the nation’s number one home buying franchise and has helped real estate investors purchase 50,000 properties over the years. The company knows that there is a great deal of information regarding investing in foreclosures. Many investors have either participated in investing in foreclosures or have at least considered it. There may have been a time, a few years ago when it was a good idea, but now, most cheap foreclosed properties are off the market.

Investors who have a stockpile of capital and can purchase many properties at the same time have the upper hand when it comes time to investing in foreclosures. Small time investors should think creatively and look elsewhere, as there are better investments right in front of them.

The big problem with investing in foreclosures is that an investor is dealing directly with the bank. Banks only participate in traditional real estate deals and aren’t interested in hearing buyer demands. The banks don’t generally drop prices, even when something is majorly wrong with a property.

As foreclosures are drying up or are being reduced artificially, there isn’t much desperation from lenders to sell their inventory quickly. In fact, many banks are taking their foreclosures off the market in order to sell the ones that are still listed, for more. They are reducing the competition and raising their prices. Small time investors can’t take advantage of this due to a lack of inventory and leverage.

If an investor is still considering investing in foreclosures they should allow their attorney to read through the purchase agreement. It is also imperative to hire a professional inspector who can look through the property and alert one of any major problems. Expect that these properties will have their share of problems, but don’t expect that the bank will be willing to reduce the price or fix the problem.

Instead of investing in foreclosures, investors should scan the market for desperate sellers who are willing to part with their property for either a reduced price or are willing to make a creative deal, like seller financing. These sellers are everywhere and allow an investor to use their education and creativity when securing a deal. This education is what allows small time investors to find deals and capitalize on them. Banks in general aren’t interested in working out creative deals, as they don’t stand to gain much from them.

The process of negotiating real estate requires making a connection with the other party and understanding their emotions.

Dallas, Texas HomeVestors is the nation’s number one home buying franchise and has helped real estate investors purchase 50,000 properties over the years. The company knows that negotiating real estate takes practice, skill, and confidence. The most important aspect of selling real estate is connecting with the other party. After that, ask them questions that enable one to know exactly what they are looking for.

In order to connect with others, it is necessary to understand where they are coming from and acknowledge them with respect. Don’t immediately begin to explain the facts of a house and explain the specifics. At this point, most individuals aren’t really listening to what they are hearing. They are trying to get a feel for a certain person so talk about golf, or the weather or anything that both parties are interested in. This can put both individuals at ease and when the time comes to negotiating real estate, there won’t be much to negotiate, just agreements across the board.

After moving through this first stage, the next step in negotiating real estate is to find out why a certain individual is selling their property. Listen closely here and don’t necessarily believe the first reason that they reveal. Many people know that they are supposed to hide their true reason for selling so they don’t appear desperate. While they are right to a certain degree, it is necessary for an investor to understand this reason so they are able to sell from an angle that caters to them.

Continue to ask questions throughout the process regarding the neighborhood, the house itself, problems that need to be addressed and so on. Find out as much as possible before even considering moving into the closing process.

Target their emotions, specifically pain and pleasure. Explain what they could receive when they sell the property. This goes back to why they are selling in the first place. Tell them how selling this property will be a weight off their shoulders. On the other hand, tell them about all the anguish they would have to go through when hiring a real estate agent and waiting for months before selling their home.

The most important step of negotiating real estate is to not need the deal, if this deal doesn’t work out, just move onto the next. After discussing a price explain to them that the offer is only good now and that one can only spend so much time with each particular property.

Finding motivated sellers is the key to running a successful real estate investing business. Pursue these three avenues and motivated sellers will be easy to target.

Dallas, Texas HomeVestors is the nation’s number one home buying franchise and has helped real estate investors purchase 50,000 properties over the years. The company knows that motivated sellers are what allow real estate investors to make the profits that they do. There are many techniques that real estate investors use to find motivated sellers. The top three places to look for motivated sellers are vacant homes, probates, and rental properties that have a negative cash flow.

Finding vacant homes is the first place to look for motivated sellers. While not all owners of vacant homes want to sell their home, many of them do. In order to solicit to owners of vacant homes, search through tax records by address and find the owners of these houses. Then send them a letter explaining the business, while giving them many ways to reply. In order to increase one’s scope, hire birddogs who can go out prospecting the neighborhoods in search of houses that are vacant. Pay them a certain percentage of any property that successfully closes and risk nothing, while working as a team.

In order to find motivated sellers, find probates, as many people who inherit property don’t know what to do with it. Many of them want a way to trade it for cash, quickly, without having to go through the entire selling process. In order to find inheritance property, search through the probate division at the county court house. Search through the weeks’ list and write each one of them a letter, regarding selling their property.

The last group of motivated sellers is rental property owners who are losing money. Many rental property owners began in the business because the theory of rental property investing appeared promising. Some didn’t realize the amount of work necessary to successfully run their business. Many may have gotten stuck with bad tenants who aren’t paying their rent or are damaging the property. Give these rental property owners a way out of their failing mortgage. Offer to purchase their property and let them move on.

In order to find these desperate sellers of rental property, call the numbers on their for rent signs. Talk to them and get a feel for how things are going on their property. Then, let them know how they can be relieved of their problem, if they are interested.

These three streams of motivated sellers should keep investors busy and they should have no problem finding properties below market value.

HomeVestors Knows The Two Methods To Use When Wholesaling Properties

Wholesaling properties requires a solid understanding of how to creatively invest in the real estate industry.

Dallas, Texas HomeVestors is the nation’s number one home buying franchise and has helped real estate investors purchase 50,000 properties over the years. The company knows that wholesaling properties has created financial freedom for many real estate investors. While wholesaling properties can make up an entire investment portfolio, it is better off at about 20% of a portfolio, due to its dynamic nature.

Wholesaling properties has changed dramatically with the advent of the Internet, as wholesalers can generate more exposure. Advertising techniques using both online and offline tactics can capture interested individuals who are looking to sell their property quickly. Most individuals who are looking to sell their property fast, end up going online and finding someone who is willing to pay cash for their property. In order to find these desperate sellers, place advertisements online and focus on making a marketing plan that encompasses the local market.

When considering a property, run the numbers to make sure that this property is bound to return a profit. Then put the property under contract, thus ensuring equitable rights to the property. At this point there are two ways to go about flipping the property. The properties’ purchase agreement can either be assigned to another buyer or the property can be sold to another buyer using the double close method.

If considering the assignment of contract, be sure to sign the purchase contract with “or assigns” after signing one’s name, giving one the ability to flip the contract to another buyer. After finding a buyer who is interested in the property for the price and the assignment fee, the paper work can be signed over to them and an investor collects their assignment fee. This fee is out in the open and can’t be too high; a figure of about $5,000 to $10,000 is usually appropriate.

The double close method is usually preferred when wholesaling properties because the profit on the sale is undisclosed. The investor agrees to purchase the property, giving what is known as an earnest money deposit. After finding a buyer, an investor flips the property over to them and an investor purchases and sells the property in one step. In order to perform this technique, work with an escrow agency that is familiar with double closing.

When wholesaling properties, these two methods, the assignment and the double close are the most common ways wholesalers earn profits in the industry without putting a great deal of capital down.

Small time investors who follow what large real estate corporations are doing in 2013 can take advantage of their vision.

Dallas, Texas HomeVestors is the nation’s number one home buying franchise and has helped real estate investors purchase 50,000 properties over the years. The company knows that investors who aren’t quite sure where they want to invest in the real estate industry should consider what big real estate corporations are betting on in 2013.

Blackstone, one of the biggest real estate corporations in the United States is buying up houses in 2013. They have decided that these houses are the future of their corporation and that their property values are likely to increase over the next few years. They have made it their business to purchase these houses in distressed areas of the United States and have invested $3 billion in this project.

Small time investors just need to follow suit. The advantage that huge real estate corporations have over small time investors is obvious, as they can use their position to purchase houses at low prices and buy them in bulk.

Although small time investors can’t compete with giant real estate corporations, like Blackstone, they can take advantage of what the market is currently offering. Residential houses are on the market for the taking and investors who are willing to put in the research can find houses at rock bottom prices.

After purchasing these houses, they can mimic real estate corporations and fix these houses up a bit. They could then consider renting them out, as this can allow the market to recover a bit, while collecting rents that continue to creep upwards. This can allow investors to be able to pay their mortgage and wait for the right time to list the property back on the market and sell it for a profit.

While these large real estate corporations could be wrong on their assessment of the market, the chance is slim and they stand to earn a great deal of capital on their investment. These real estate corporations could just as easily put their capital into commercial property, which is also likely to be successful in 2013, but they didn’t. They scaled back their focus and invested heavily in something that investors of all types can pursue.

Small time investors don’t need to search through a thousand pages of literature to find the best investment in 2013. Large real estate corporations, like Blackstone, have performed the research and investors who take advantage of their vision can earn a great deal of capital in 2013 by investing in residential houses.

Real estate investors who are able to take advantage of under water houses are able to purchase properties at prices below market value. The effect that under water houses has upon the industry, forces sellers to lower their prices, in order to compete with the market. This negatively affects sellers in these areas, but investors can enter the market and use the prices of under water houses, as a bargaining chip, in order to negotiate with any seller.

Some investors choose to invest in markets that had the biggest market crashes. This makes sense from many different standpoints, but investors should understand these markets before investing in them. They need to ask questions, like, is this market likely rebound and why? If a new industry has taken a hold of a particular market, it can give investors reason to purchase houses in this area.

Investors can work specifically with sellers who are living in under water houses and offer them relief by working out short sales with their lender. This can be a profitable pursuit in an area that is dealing with an overload of under water houses. Real estate investors who invest in short sales can expedite the recovering market by removing this inventory off the books.

Investors who invest in these areas, but don’t want to work with under water houses, can target other sellers who are interested in selling their homes. These sellers feel the pressure that under water houses are putting on their selling efforts and many would be happy if someone made them an offer. They realize that they are not likely to receive top-dollar when selling in this type of market. Many times, they are willing to negotiate with a real estate investor who is willing to offer them a way out of their property.

Most of these regions with a great deal of under water houses have relatively high inventory, giving investors the leverage they need to negotiate rock bottom prices. After securing a few of these properties, investors can choose the direction they wish to take. Many fix up these properties a bit and rent them out, while others choose to sell them quickly, in order to earn capital.

The right way to invest in markets with under water houses is completely up to an investor, they can short sale the actual under water houses or take advantage of the other houses in the area. They can then rent these properties out or flip them for a profit.

Simple Real Estate Investments For Beginning Investors

Real estate has become an investment vehicle over the last 50 years and many investors have made fortunes in the business. Real estate investing is far from easy so don’t let those late night TV real estate gurus tell you otherwise. Take time to understand the industry before diving into it and keep things as simple as possible when starting out, in order to gain traction. Some simple real estate investments that beginning investors pursue are rental properties, rehab properties and investing in REITs.

Beginning investors should consider rental properties because they are a time-tested way to invest in real estate. The reason for this is simple because rental properties allow investors to generate monthly cash flow that is used to pay for their leveraged capital. After finding a property that has been determined to be a good rental property based on ROI, most of the money to finance the property is leveraged through a lending institute. The monthly rental payments cover the mortgage, the taxes, maintenance and leave a rental property owner with a little bit of profit each month.As this continues throughout the course of the mortgage, the rental is eventually paid off and a rental property owner now capitalizes on the property.

Of course, there are some drawbacks to owning rental property. Bad tenants who don’t pay their rent put a dent in the profitability of a property and can lead to negative cash flow. In order to avoid bad tenants, beginning investors should purchase a rental property in a decent part of town and put potential tenants through a screening process.

Beginning real estate investors who pursue rehab properties can earn a great deal by finding properties that are in need of some TLC, fixing them up and getting them back on the market. 2013 is turning out to be a hot market for rehab properties. Take some time to research the best locations and properties before picking the best one.

REITs allow beginning real estate investors to capitalize on what real estate has to offer, while remaining physically detached from the industry itself. REITs allow an investor to invest their capital with a company that handles rental property. A beginning investor receives a dividend based on their investment and don’t have to put in any actual work.

Beginning investors should focus on simple strategies when starting in real estate, like rental property, rehab properties and REITs. These three options can allow an investor to work up the ranks and capitalize on their successes.

Real estate investors who invest in sub belt real estate stand to earn a profit from their investments, as many individuals are moving to these regions in search of a better life. This migration trend doesn’t only included citizens of the United States, but many other nationalities as well. Canadians are investing in Sun Belt real estate in vast numbers and investors who cater to these individuals can find buyers for their real estate rather quickly.

Sun belt real estate includes properties in Florida, Texas and the Southwest regions, like Arizona. These states have long been known as the place to go by those looking at retirement and those who are wishing to escape the cold during the winter. Some individuals are deciding to make a permanent residence in Sun Belt real estate regions because many of these locations are beginning to offer new jobs and are bringing prosperity to the area.

Real estate investors who want to capitalize on Sun Belt real estate should focus on distressed sellers, as there are still quite a few. In fact, Phoenix, the capital of home foreclosures reports that 60% of sales in the region are from distressed sellers. This number should attract the attention of investors looking to land a deal.

Not only are people desperate to sell here, they are also looking to buy, creating a scenario that any investor should take note of. Some real estate investors who choose to invest in Sun Belt real estate may consider advertising directly to foreigners, especially Canadians, as they are excited about the opportunity of living in this region.

The median housing price in Phoenix was $119,000 in November of 2012 and has been increasing steadily as investors are purchasing more underwater properties. Over 100 properties reach the auction block in Phoenix every month, but those investors who can strike deals before houses get to this stage can capitalize on the market in Phoenix.

As the population rises in the Sun Belt real estate regions, like Phoenix, real estate investors have many choices as to how to generate capital.

The advantages of real estate investments are numerous, from wealth preservation to the tax shelter that it provides. Those who are proud to call themselves real estate investors, invest in real estate because it is one of the best ways to earn money off a tangible asset. Most real estate investors choose to invest in hard real estate because they are able to leverage capital in order to purchase an investment that otherwise wouldn’t be attainable.

One of the most important advantages of real estate is wealth protection. Those who are looking for a way to invest their capital have options available to them, but real estate is arguably the best way to preserve wealth and earn capital at the same time. The advantages of real estate tower over stocks or mutual funds because real estate is a tangible asset. In a sense, a real estate investor controls the land. If the value of a stock drops to zero an investor has nothing, on the other hand, if the value of a property drops to zero, investors still have something that they can call their own.

Another one of the advantages of real estate investments is that they can provide residual income. For example, an investor who invests in rental property receives capital, month after month, for the course of the investment. They can also leverage capital to finance that investment. Leveraging capital is quite specific to real estate investments and can enable an investor to purchase a property far larger then they could with just their own money.

Those who understand the advantages of real estate know where to invest their money based on the future predictions. Right now, the United States is experiencing a rental boom and investors who can leverage capital and become involved in this lucrative sector of real estate, are destined to earn profits. In 2000, 33 million people were renting property in the United States and that number was up to 40 million in 2011.

Another one of the advantages of real estate investments is that they provide a tax shelter. The depreciation of a property can be written off, as well as some other expenses. This alone makes a real estate investment better then an investment in stocks.

Those who understand the advantages of real estate investments are likely already involved in the real estate field. Those who are new to investing should consider real estate before other options because it provides a host of benefits that other investments don’t.

Real estate investors also look at property inventory, as a way to judge where the real estate market is headed.

Inventory levels are usually measured by how many months of supply are on the market and about 6 months of property inventory is normal. Many markets are experiencing inventory with only 3 months of supply. Investors who understand where the real estate market is headed, in these regions, are likely to purchase property while they still can. Real estate investors who capitalize on the market now can still purchase properties at decent prices.

Investors who understand where the real estate market is headed are able to make deductions as to where they should invest their capital. Due to the overall positive attitude regarding the market in 2013, many investors have been diving into real estate. Sellers who understand this can obtain prices that reflect this demand, but many sellers are still underwater and looking for a way to get out of their property. As such, investors who have the patience and do the research in order to find these desperate sellers can still acquire many deals. Real estate investors who understand where the real estate market is headed stand to do well in 2013.
