Exclusive 8 week series
I’m excited to bring you this series — Insiders Secrets for Buying an Investment Property – featuring tips and strategies that put you a step ahead in todays market.
Buying an investment property can be confusing and intimidating at times. That’s why it’s perfectly okay to find yourself outside of your comfort zone.
My goal with this series is to make you more comfortable and that starts with making you a more confident and knowledgeable buyer … with an insider’s edge.
These topics are like the “back story” or a first glimpse of the “behind the scenes” of purchasing a property. They are a good overview about things you should think about and consider before you begin a serious search. By reading these articles, you’ll become a more attuned buyer who understands that investing in real estate doesn’t have to be stressful or full of regret.
Let’s get started with a rundown of each article for our series:
Understanding the Flow of the Market: Just like riding a wave in the ocean, you’ve got to learn about that natural ebbs and flows of the market and what to expect when. You’ll need an understanding of not only the seasonal shifts in market activity but also it’s weekly flow. Buying for investment often requires you to use this flow to your advantage and/or learn how to swim against it.
Real Estate Financing: Do you need a lot of cash to invest in real estate? The short answer is no. The longer answer is more complex. We’ll go over common strategies that can be used to invest in real estate without having (or using-if you do have) a lot of cash on hand.
Red Flags to Avoid When Buying an Investment Property: No property is perfect, but this list of hidden red flags could save you in the long run. You might be surprised by what to look out for before you make an offer. I’ll explain how to know the difference between a red flag and when to waive the white flag in surrender and move on to another, better deal.
4 Little Known Property Hunting Tips: Many investors love real estate so much that their search begins to resemble a personal house hunt! But when you’re searching for an investment property, it’s time to be strategic. I’ll tell you about things you should do, and shouldn’t do, when hunting for your next income producing property.
Frequent Questions Answered: The questions swirling around in your mind are likely the same ones that every active investor wants to ask too. You want to make sure you don’t do something wrong, right? Or, you might worry that you don’t know what you don’t know? I provide answers to some of the most common questions so you’ll become better informed and more reassured.
Choosing your Niche & Strategy: There are dozens (if not hundreds) of different ways to make money as a real estate investor. You may absolutely love some niches and strategies, while others may make you shudder. You don’t need to choose them all. Once you identify the niche you want to get started with, you’ll be able to narrow down your focus, become and expert and begin building wealth by executing a plan of action.
How to Find the Right Property: To make your money when you buy, you must purchase a property at a price that will ensure your desired profits based on your strategy. In other words, you need to buy smart. If you vastly overpay for a property, no amount of wishing, hoping, or improving it is going to make your investment worthwhile. While you can’t predict with 100% accuracy where the market may go, you can figure out where it’s at today.
Overcoming the “Get Rich Quick” Mindset: One of the largest draws of real estate investing is the image of investors driving fancy cars, living in large homes, and ultimately being rich. And while many real estate investors do build significant wealth during their careers, real estate investing is not a get-rich-quick scheme. We’ll talk about the right mindset to have to be successful in your investment career and how to use our natural fear response to your advantage.
