Investors who are depending on lender financing to purchase real estate need to act quickly if they want to take advantage of the current low interest rates. 

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 the current mortgage interest rate is at 4.22%, giving investors one last chance to benefit from these low rates.  As the economy improves and GDP increases vigorously, expect that the Fed will begin scaling back on its QE program.

While the current mortgage interest rates are hovering around 4.20% expect that this isn’t going to last for much longer.  The reason that mortgage interest rates have remained so low over the last couple of years is due to the Fed’s bond-buying program.  This has given life to the United States economy as a whole and has carried it through tough times.  The United States economy is seeing improvements as of late and may not need the QE program to keep it afloat.

The reason that the mortgage interest rates are going up is because the Fed is reducing their stimulus program.  While the tapering of the QE program wasn’t expected until the middle of next year, surprising employment and GDP numbers may give the Fed the evidence they need in order to scale back on their bond-buying program.

Those investors who have been considering a real estate acquisition, but still haven’t made a concrete decision need to act fast in order to secure lender financing with a low mortgage interest rate.  As property values have begun to level off, investors may be able to find sellers who are looking to sell quickly.  Investors can also take advantage of the fact that there are fewer buyers on the market at this time and should be able to use that as negotiating power.

On the other hand, investors who are looking to purchase properties with cash should wait until the mortgage interest rates push up a bit.  This will reduce the number of buyers on the market substantially and give them the leverage they need to secure a deal.  This reduction in mortgage interest rates should happen sometime in 2014.  Those who are looking to sell property at this time will be in for a rude awakening when they encounter a great deal of competition and only a few interested buyers.

Investors who understand that mortgage interest rates are increasing in the next couple of months should secure a property now and take advantage of the current low rate.

Investors who are having a problem finding tenants for their rental property need to upgrade their advertising efforts. 

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 have a problem finding tenants need to consider branching out their advertising strategies.  Rental property owners who use a wide range of advertising mediums are bound to find that they are able to keep their rentals full.

Investors who are having a problem finding tenants need to really focus on their advertising program with vigor.  Many investors are locked into the old way of advertising their property.  While putting a For Sale sign on the front yard and advertising the property in the newspaper is bound to bring in some tenants, using the Internet to advertise a rental is absolutely mandatory.

For those investors who are having a problem finding tenants, consider at least placing an advertisement on Craigslist.  This site is responsible for at least capturing 20% of the market.  The popularity of Craigslist has given tenants a place where they can go and find a rental property with little difficulty.

For those who are using Craigslist and other typical advertising strategies, but are still having a problem finding tenants, consider other online techniques designed to increase exposure.  The number one way that tenants search for their next rental property is through an apartment Internet Listing Service (ILS).  In fact, 65% of potential tenants find their next property by searching through these databases.  Investors need to submit their property to a popular ILS in order to capture a number of clients.  Consider paying extra for a premium listing, as a large number of tenants are bound to see it.

Investors who are still having a problem finding tenants, even after listing their site on Craigslist and the ILS should consider starting a social media advertising program.  While only a few potential tenants use this service, it can allow investors to interact with tenants before meeting them.  This can develop confidence in both parties and contribute to a better relationship overall.

Those who are having a problem finding tenants should make sure that they have a positive reputation online.  Most potential tenants will review ratings before initiating contact with a rental property owner.  Rental property owners who have positive feedback overall will be able to capture the majority of the market.

Investors who are having a problem finding tenants should be able to avoid this problem if they start harnessing the power of the Internet.

Investors who are just getting started in the field should become experts on finding undervalued property and purchasing them in order to take advantage of increases in appreciation. 

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 real estate investors who understand which locations are undervalued can purchase property there before median property values adjust to represent the true market value.  While there are many undervalued properties in the United States, two locations that are valued about 20% under their correct value are Cleveland, OH and Palm Bay, FL

There are a number of undervalued properties throughout the United States, but investors who target certain areas are bound to find a large number of these properties in the vicinity.  Investors who search for properties in locations that other large industrial investors have ignored are likely to find better properties, as they don’t have to compete with these investors.

It is hard to ignore locations like Cleveland, OH and Palm Bay, FL, as property values here have been deemed to be 20% below where they should be.  Investors who purchase properties in these two locations can almost be certain to capitalize on the appreciation, as soon as the market recognizes the true value of these areas.  When targeting these areas, look for properties that are being sold by desperate sellers to capitalize even more from the acquisition.

While these two locations are a great start for investors who are looking for undervalued properties, investors who have a knack for finding property sold by desperate sellers are able to purchase undervalued properties in any real estate market.  Beginning investors should begin a strong marketing program aimed at targeting these desperate sellers.  First, start an advertising program that focuses on using the Internet.  Desperate sellers are bound to search for a solution to their problem through an Internet search.  Investors who pay for advertising should be able to expose their services to these individuals.

Another way to find undervalued properties is to physically canvass neighborhoods, looking for those who are interested in selling their properties quickly.  This technique is a good way to get one’s name out in the business and develop a reputation as an investor who purchases properties with cash.  The effectiveness of this technique surpasses many passive advertising strategies because an investor is able to physically talk with sellers and make a deal with them.

The key to being a successful investor is to be able to target undervalued properties and purchase them before another investor does so.

Real estate investors who are just getting started in the field should search for a property that is located in an inexpensive area. 

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 are just getting started in the field need to find a location that is bound to be profitable.  Those investors who don’t have a great deal of capital should consider investing in a location that doesn’t require a large sum of money in order to purchase inexpensive real estate.

Typically, most beginning real estate investors don’t have a large sum of capital on hand.  In order to get the most from their money, these investors should purchase inexpensive real estate in order to get a feel for the industry and work their way up.  While there is inexpensive real estate scattered throughout the United States, investors who target the areas where real estate is priced low should be able to secure a profitable real estate portfolio.

The best place to purchase inexpensive real estate is Cleveland, OH, with a median property value of $63,729.  Investors who have the ability to save up the entire purchase price are able to capitalize to the greatest degree, as they won’t have to worry about dealing with a lender or paying interest.  Those investors who still want to finance the property should be able to get involved with an investment like this for $20,000 or less.  Investing in Cleveland can allow an investor to begin their investment journey without having to commit a great deal of capital to the business.

The second best place to purchase inexpensive real estate is Saginaw, MI, as the median property values are $87,181.  While this is significantly higher than Cleveland, it is still a bargain and investors who do their research should be able to find a property that is bound to be profitable.

Other areas of the country where investors should consider if they want to purchase inexpensive real estate is Jackson, MS, Jonesboro, GA and Buffalo, NY.  These areas are priced competitively and can give a beginning investor everything they are looking for.  The biggest reason that many investors avoid investing in real estate is because they don’t have the capital to do so.  Investors who are able to build up a bit of capital and obtain lender financing can jump into the real estate field in one of these lower priced areas.

Investors who are just getting started in the field should purchase inexpensive real estate because the risks are lower and the profit potential is positive.

Investors who are considering a real estate investment should focus on rental property, as the numbers of homeowners are decreasing. 

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 homeownership is at an 18-year low, down to 65.1%.  Investors who own rental property are able to capitalize on the remaining 34.9% of the population.  An increasing number of potential tenants appear to be the trend over the next couple of years and investors should capitalize on them.

Investors who own rental property are able to capitalize in almost any market in the United States, as there are a growing number of potential tenants.  Those investors who take the time to analyze each market individually will likely see a trend among profitable markets.  Those regions that are increasing in popularity are the ones that are seeing an increase in rentals and an increase in rental income.

Investors who own rental property are able to capitalize on an increase in property value, an increase in rental rates and an overall decrease in vacancies.  Those who have the desire to enter the rental property field really don’t have to deal with a large number of negative factors due to the nature of the market.  As always, do the necessary due diligence when analyzing a specific rental property and only get involved with properties that have been determined to be a profitable venture by making sure that the positive cash flow exceeds the negative cash flow.

When searching for a rental property, focus on properties that are located in a decent section of town in order to profit, without having to deal with a large number of problems.  Locations that are near the downtown region and occupied by business professionals are ideal, as these properties are likely to remain occupied throughout the course of the investment.  Those who own rental property in this type of location can also charge an above average rental rate due to the overall demand for the rental.

Expect that rentals in a downtown region that is bustling with life will appreciate over time, especially if the city it is located in continues to grow.  Those who own rental property in regions like this should have an understanding of the future prospects of the location and be sure that it is going to continue its upward growth.

Investors who own rental property are bound to capitalize to an even greater degree over the next couple of years.

HomeVestors Knows That Mortgage Interest Rates Are Beneficial To Investors

Investors who want to take advantage of the current interest rates need to purchase a property before the Fed reduces their QE program. 

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 mortgage interest rates have increased a tad from 3.95% to 4.05%.  Expect that mortgage interest rates will remain around this mark for the remainder of the year.  Investors need to act quickly if they want to take advantage of the “cheap money” that the Fed is providing them.

As mortgage interest rates teeter around the 4% rate, investors who are planning on using lender financing to purchase their investment have to be smiling.  This is only likely to be the case for the next couple of months and those who are able to purchase a property by using lender financing should do so relatively quickly.

As soon as the Fed switches leadership, expect that the QE program might be handled differently.  If Janet Yellen, the candidate expected to lead the Fed in 2014 and beyond becomes the new face of the Fed, expect that the QE program will begin to be scaled back.  When this happens, the interest rates are bound to push up and force investors to reconsider their source of financing.

Even if Yellen decides to continue to QE program in its entirety, at some point this bond-buying program has to end.  Investors will likely not have another shot at 4% mortgage interest rates in the next couple of years, making it crucial that they act now in order to save a great deal of money over the course of their investment.

One side effect that an increase in mortgage interest rates will have on investors is that they will be likely able to purchase property for less, as property values are expect to drop if interest rates push up past 5%.  This is due to a lower level of competition among buyers because most won’t be able to afford the inflated mortgage payment.

Investors who are paying cash for properties can take advantage of an increase in mortgage interest rates that are likely to allow them to secure better deals.  These investors should wait until the market favors them and begin buying up properties when interest rates are high, as they are likely to be able to make their own terms and conditions when dealing with buyers.

Investors who want to take advantage of the current mortgage interest rates need to purchase a property in the near future.

Investors need to show their clients that they are obtaining a quick sale that is paid in cash, in order to convince them to agree to a subpar selling price. 

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 real estate investors have to convince clients to sell their property at a discount.  This is not always easy, but is a necessary part of earning a profit in real estate.  Real estate investors need to show clients that it is in their best interest to sell a property to them.

Investors who highlight the positives when dealing with clients are the ones who are earning a profit in real estate because they cater directly to these individuals.  Inform these clients that they can expect to receive cash almost immediately after agreeing to the sale.  Cash generally speaks loud and clear, especially to clients who are desperate to sell their property.

Investors who are earning a profit in real estate should also inform their clients that they don’t have to perform the necessary cleaning, staging and marketing that accompanies most other sales.  Investors purchase property ‘as is’ and sellers don’t have to worry about all the issues that usually go along with getting a house ready for the market.  These clients don’t have to fix up any problems, as an investor generally takes this responsibility on their shoulders.

The investors who are earning a profit in real estate generally offer their clients a speedy closing process.  Those sellers who need to sell their property quickly generally turn towards investors who specialize in closing as fast as possible.  Some investors even offer to close on a property in as little as 7 days.  Investors are able to do this because they don’t have to wait for approval from lenders or inspectors.  These investors simply sign on the dotted line and pay cash for properties as soon as they have reached an agreement.

Investors who are able to point out these positive aspects to sellers are able to sidestep the negative aspect of a low overall price.  Sellers who are in a desperate position know that they have to sell their property at a reduced value in exchange for dealing with an investor who is paying cash, in as little as 7 days.

Earning a profit in real estate comes down to finding deals and convincing sellers to part with their property at a discount.

Investing in real estate is better than investing in stocks because an increase in interest rates is going to hurt the stock market more than it affects a long-term real estate investment. 

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 are trying to decide whether they want to invest in stocks or a real estate investment need to understand how the QE program affects both investments.  While investing in both investments is generally a good idea when interest rates are low, only real estate allows one to lock in and continuously take advantage of this low interest rate.

The significant increase in the stock market this year is in part due to the willingness of the Fed to continue its QE program.  This bond-buying program is keeping interest rates at all time lows, giving the market the confidence to continue pushing forward.  Those investors who placed their funds in the stock market or a real estate investment in the beginning of the year have made a good choice, as both investments increased substantially.

At this point, an investor needs to ponder the future and decide whether the stocks or a real estate investment are bound to earn them greater returns over the next couple of years.  Those who continue with stocks may be in for a rude awaking, if the Fed decides to taper back on their QE program.  Higher interest rates are likely to reduce consumer confidence and send the stock market back a few pegs.

Those who decide to invest in a real estate investment are able to lock in the current low interest rates by obtaining lender financing and won’t be directly affected when these rates increase substantially.  These investors can take advantage of this “cheap money” now and into the future, while earning a stable income, if they choose to invest in a rental property.

Those investors who decide to invest in a rental property real estate investment are able to take advantage of the increasing number of potential tenants and the increase in rental rates, not to mention the potential increase in property values.  Investors who are looking for security over the next couple years, especially as soon as the Fed stops its QE program, will be able to depend on their rental property real estate investment to consistently earn a profit.

Those investors who are seeking the best return on their money throughout the next couple of years should invest in a rental property real estate investment and avoid the speculation required to succeed in the stock market.

Analyze a rental property and the costs associated with it before purchasing one in order to avoid getting stuck with a bad investment. 

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 are a number of factors to consider before purchasing rental property.  Those investors who take the time to make sure that these issues amount to a profit can confidently enter the rental property business.

The first factor to understand before purchasing rental property is the amount of capital the entire endeavor is likely to cost.  Investors who understand how to properly analyze this realize that there is more to this than what meets the eye.  Investors who are securing lender financing need to have the down payment, which is likely to be at least 20% of the value.  Those who are purchasing a $500,000 rental property need at least $100,000 just for this.

Investors should also have a substantial amount of cash on hand before purchasing rental property and should have at least the first 6 months of mortgage payments.  This will give them a safety blanket when getting started with this investment.  If the mortgage happens to be $2,500 a month, an investor should have at least $15,000 stored away in order to be able to pay the rent in the event of potential problems.

Investors should also have a substantial amount of money in an emergency fund before purchasing rental property.  This fund can cover a wide assortment of problems, from vacancy to making necessary repairs.  Consider placing at least $5,000 in this fund in order deal with any issues that happen to arise.

The next factor to understand before purchasing rental property is the cash flow situation.  Investors need to be articulate when determining exactly how much positive cash flow they are likely to receive and how much negative cash flow will be pouring out.  Those who can properly analyze these numbers will know exactly how much profit they will be earning on a monthly basis.

When calculating the positive cash flow, assume that the rental will not be completely full.  Figure that only 90% of the potential positive cash flow will actually be coming in.  When analyzing the negative cash flow, consider all the factors that go into it.  Consider the taxes, management fees, advertising fees, maintenance fees, the insurance and anything else that will bite into the profits.

Investors who do their homework before purchasing a rental property are bound to find themselves in a profitable situation.
