Many books and courses advise you to purchase investment property located within a thirty mile radius of your personal residence. I say that’s still too far. Shoot for twenty miles, preferably fifteen.
Passive income – This could be used for any number of things. Get enough investment properties and you can retire on it. Or you can use it as a supplemental income. Either way is excellent.
The smell of tobacco is the number one reason why buyers withdraw. Even if the buyer is a chain smoker, he doesn’t want to live in a home that smells like tobacco. He may be a smoker, but he also wants to live in a clean and good smelling home. As a seller, you must take good care of the cleanliness issue of the home if you don’t want your potential buyers to withdraw.
Think of it this way. You have to operate your business out of somewhere. Lately, as I drive to my office, all I see is a bunch of for sale signs on ideal buildings off the 101 freeway. Some of these spaces are brand spanking new construction projects that have been sitting vacant since last year. Perhaps your lease is coming up & your lease is going to be increased. If you have already been affording a lease payment all these years why not make your rental cost an investment. A Commercial Mortgage lets you convert that expense into an asset. And you won’t have to worry about your landlord’s property being foreclosed on.
Get acquainted with a competent real estate agent that does a lot of business in the neighborhood you’re investigating. Have him or her search the local Multiple Listing Service database and pull up “active listings, pending sales, and sold comps” for the area. If you plan to flip you want an active market – one, it makes it easier to estimate a final retail value for the properties you’re considering buying and two it shows that there are active buyers in the market now. Even if you plan to rent you still want to own in a location that is in demand.
Sales methods chosen or recommended by the property must be based on market trends and the local real target market. The best method suggested retail should be focused on the known results of similar properties.
I’m surprised more investors with the means aren’t already doing this. The key to all this is selecting the right TIC property sponsor. The Spectrus Group is one of my favorites due to its impressive and consistent record providing outstanding results to their investors. In 28 years of operation, they have never missed a payment to an investor and never have been late either. They provide investors with outstanding solid commercial property investments via their NNN Plus lease, which as mentioned previously, pays the investor on a contractual term regardless if the property is even rented or not. And if that’s not enough, when it comes time to sell the property, 100% of the profits goes straight to the investor as well. It’s low risk and you can do this today.
