investors: Finding Properties that aren't on the MLS - 04/09/14 12:15 PM
A majority of my time is spent finding properties for investors.
Most of these properties are not listed on the multiple listing service.
These are properties found through a variety of means, including:
Wholesalers Trustee Sales Probate Private Party sales Auctions Even when there is a large inventory on the MLS, there will always be investors searching for below-market deals. So, it's as if the inventory will never meet the demand of the investor market.
If you'd like to know more about the services I provide, let me know.
Although many of my investors typically purchase with cash, there are also … (3 comments)

investors: Real Estate Investing - Phoenix Real Estate Auctions - 11/08/09 11:09 AM
Real estate investing has always required a little bit of foresight and a modicum of due diligence.
The process has, over the past few decades, been made somewhat easier by the knowledge that time heals all real estate wounds
In other words- even bad deals could be fixed by cost of living adjustments and growth.
Land, being a scarce object, would increase in value because you can't make more of it.
Time is the unknown.
How much time does it take for a property to increase in value?
Now- the time factor has a warp to it.
Some properties are not … (7 comments)

investors: Arizona Real Estate Investing Heating Up - 06/28/08 02:03 PM

During my childhood, I was fascinated by a series of commercials for a mosquitoe repellant- they were quite compelling.
A man would stick his arm into a "cage" full of thirsty mosquitoes.
They would quickly land and get to work on his unprotected arm.
I practically shouted at the screen, "don't do it! ... you'll get malaria!"
Then the man would spray on some mosquito repellant and re-insert his arm.
The mosquitos would stay clear.
The announcer would say, "They don't bite. They don't even light!"
This imagery came to mind in the past week when I began to notice … (2 comments)

investors: The Three Flavors of Real Estate Investors - 02/04/08 10:25 PM

There are three flavors of Real Estate Investors. Each flavor has a different personality.
The Long Termer / Buy and Hold Investor The Buy / Rent & Sell Investor The Flipper The Long Termer will be most interested in buying well. They may be less interested in buying as low as possible. This investor has confidence that the property will increase in value. Of greatest interest is value and, perhaps, location. This investor will also most likely be concerned with purchasing a property that has a great potential for equity build-up. This can be done by paying attention to a … (2 comments)

investors: Free Resources: Personal Finance eBooks - 01/28/08 03:06 PM

Every once in a while someone will ask me if I know of any resources that would allow them to learn what they need to know about personal finances. There are many books out there and I try to read at least one industry specific book per month on this topic.
I use Audible to listen to  audiobooks while I'm out scouting properties. I'll also download the occasional ebook to read on my handheld device.
Mint.edu is a great resource for ebooks. Their website has a section which allows you to download, for free, 30 different ebooks encompassing several areas … (0 comments)

investors: The Metaphor of the Half-Pipe - 01/07/08 01:41 PM
Try searching for pictures of skateboarders. Rarely will you see them at the low point. Yet you'll find many spectacular photos showing them barreling down hill or flying high above the boundaries of the half -pipe.The bottom of the pipe- both approaching and slightly rising are less intersting to us.This is our real estate market. Some economists will vary, saying the market hasapproached the troughis at the low pointis on a slight riseTo the investor it doesn't matter... as long as it's any of the three. The average investor is happy to see that the properties they desire are in the … (3 comments)

investors: SilverLinings: New Home Inventories Declining - 12/28/07 03:42 PM

What's a real estate investor to do?
Applying the "buy low sell high" rule to today's market is a simple task. One must glean the good news from the bad. Sometimes it's easy... as is the case in today's Wall Street Journal (Dec. 28, 2007, C1). The Title? "New Homes Sales Data May Contain a Bit of Hope".
The article contains the negative data: New home sales are down- lowest level in five years/50% below peak.
Positive data: The inventory level of new homes is declining. (Down to 520k from the high of 570K).
Depending on where you sit in … (1 comments)
