If you’re looking for a way to dig yourself out of a financial hole in a hurry, this isn’t it.

Use good photos in the newsletter that are well lit and capture the right message. The best exterior photos of property are usually taken when the sun is low in the sky. That will be first in the morning or late in the day. What you want to have is the sun shining clearly on the front of the building. Avoid using photos with shade distorting the image.

Check out the properties that were purchased about 4 or more years ago. History shows that they will be in the next group of properties to come on the market for sale.

Trying to find the right way to invest in today’s real estate market is not easy. The real question is whether you want to turn the property over and sell it, or if you want to rent it out for a long time. That decision could influence what type of property you should buy. If you are looking to sell with in a time frame, you should buy a home. You can rent it out for a few years while the market value increases and then sell it for a nice profit. That’s the smart way to do it, and the longer you wait the more value the property would have in a potential sale. On the other hand there is a different approach when you are looking to purchase a commercial property.

Commercial exchanges have very specific time frames and rules. We just had a call from a seller who said “I just closed on the sale of my commercial building and I want to exchange it for another”. Big mistake once the closing check went into the sellers account the exchange is no longer viable. Commercial exchanges, selling off portfolio’s and deciding what avenue to take is a process that should be done with a commercial real estate company that you can have good communications with.

Allow kids – Many landlords do allow kids in their properties, but at the same time one would not believe how many don’t. A property owner should be encouraging families to live in their homes, not discouraging them. It is much harder for a family to pack up and leave than a single person. Keep this in mind, as families tend to stay longer than singles.

Roger’s secret weapon was that he didn’t care whether he purchased the property or not. In fact when property investing he never gets emotionally involved. He told me he’ll make an offer on a property, not caring whether he owns the real estate. This is a secret weapon of many accomplished property investors-thought at times it can be difficult to put in practice.

Another scenario that happens often someone has some spare cash, endowment matures or they receive some form of inheritance. They also have a builder mate and together they decide to invest in a do me up property. Something they can add value to (in principal this is a sound approach).

The way to do this is to wait until after the tax sale. The properties that actually sold at tax sale tell you two things: first, that they were nice enough for someone to bid on, and second, that they probably don’t have a mortgage. Mortgage companies don’t let mortgage property make it all the way to tax sale. They pay off the taxes in the meantime, and foreclose themselves.

My friend Lee was referred to Jane Doe by one of his investor clients; her carpenter had just quit and left her in the middle of an unfinished renovation on two new 1 bedroom basement apartments. She was visibly upset, stressed out and running out of money really quickly, in what she referred to as “an endless money pit”. As mentioned, this was her very first real estate investment; she had no previous experience of renovation projects first hand. To her, this experience was supposed to be easy, fun, and trouble free . after all, she was supposed to make more money for herself than she was making in the stock market and in mutual funds, right?

For example, your home may be worth 0,000 with a loan of 0,000. You have 20%25 equity in the property. Some investors will feel ready to buy their first investment property at this point.

Less competitors. Given that they lack specialized knowledge and lack mindset, you will find fewer people out doing multifamily deals than single family deals.

Avoid attending the tax sale. Too many bidders means not enough good deals. You also have to buy houses for back tax sign unseen, if you buy at tax sale. This is far too risky for anyone – let alone a beginner.

When dealing in commercial real estate, it is much nicer if you will not do it all alone.
