MAKE BIG MONEY IN REAL ESTATE




Real Estate is one of the oldest forms of investing known to man.





Real Estate investing is easy and fortunes are made in a simple



manner. For example, and investor decides that a desert area will



eventually become an industrial development. He purchases a



number of acres at a very low price. If his guess turns out to be



correct, ten years later he sells the land hundred times more



than what he paid for it.This can happen in any part of the



country and is not an exceptional case.





As the population keeps growing in the U.S., land prices continue



to raise and it means that Real Estate will continue to offer one



of the best investment opportunities in the country.





Compared to most forms of investment, Real Estate offers greater



profit potential. Of course, not every piece of land will turn



out to be a winner, and despite the great potential rewards in



some cases risks are involved, so the necessity of careful study



before invest.





One of the problem of Real Estate is his lack of liquidity.



Liquid assists are those easily converted into cash like stocks



or bons. Most Real Estate investments take years before you can



make some money, so it is not wise to tie up all your assets in



this type of investment. Your financial situation will determine



how much you can wisely invest in properties.





There is a difference between a land speculator and an investor.



A speculator buys land with the intention to make a quick sale



and fast profits and will not hold land for a long period of



time. An investor, on the other hand, looks for a long time gain,



and usually buys only what he can afford to keep for an



indefinite period of time.





If you are new at this field, it is wise to refrain from any a



speculation until you become more informed, and you will have to



devote considerable time to study and research. It is wise also



to consult specialists before you act.





Without realizing it, you already made a very successful



investment in Real Estate if you bought your own home.





Before you look for areas to invest, consider the condition of



your own house. If you have any plan for selling it, good



landscaping has been known to considerably increase the value of



a home.





Large profits can be attained by purchasing run-down homes and



restoring them for eventual selling, but some factors have to be



considered:





* You must know something about architecture and remodeling and



get and idea of how much it will cost to get the house back into



shape. Consider what you will be able to do yourself and what it



will cost you if you have to have it done.





* The location of the house is the most important factor to



consider. Study the neighborhood, shopping, and transportation



facilities.





It can also be profitable to lease land for commercial use. Land



which borders highway is extremely valuable for purpose such as



warehouse, gas station, etc.





Land development companies frequently run advertisements offering



country retreats. Be wary of these offers as they themselves make



a large profit at the time they sell you the land, so it is much



more profitable for you to buy your own.





When you buy property, buy at a price that involves a minimum



financial risk. Invest only a modest amount of your own capital,



when you sell, determine if a cash or installment sale is the



best, based on your over-all income tax status. Learn by looking



back on the mistakes made in the past and by reviewing the



opportunities you have missed.





Prepare a list of all properties available in your area and think



up the best future use of the properties. Learn to purchase land



before there is a demand. To buy land well in advance is the only



economical way at today's prices. Then hold the property until



you can resale for large profits. Don't sell all your desirable



properties and keep just lemons.





If you are willing to leave the cities, you should not have any



trouble finding inexpensive land for sale. If you discover a



tract of land appealing to you but not listed for sale, contact



the Country Register's Office and he will tell you who is the



owner. Get in touch with him and he could be willing to sell.





As a rule purchasing tracts of land within thirty miles from a



growing city is often a sound investment. Deal only with



qualified realtors. Be careful of individuals who offer quick



profits.





Before taking any action, study what has been written about the



subject. Know why you should and should not buy. Stay



conventional and don't buy white elephants. Look for hidden



defects and make the property attractive before offering it for



resale. Study local conditions and be sure it is practical.



Constantly look for bargains and quality properties with



exceptional features that will make the sale easier. Follow up on



For Sale signs, make inquiries.





When discouraging elements occur, minimize your losses by



whatever means available. Don't throw away money on repairs for



poorly located property or in an area of surplus rental units.





Before you attempt to sell, find out how the prospect can use the



property profitably. Ask yourself if you would purchase it if you



were in the prospect's shoes. Ask yourself if the future use will



fit any of the many types of specific businesses. Can a hospital,



a bank, an apartment complex, condominium or professional



building be located on the property.





Learn to analyze the pros and cons of a real estate problem.



Break it down into its various elements. Know if the answers you



come up with are satisfactory and practical. Try different



approaches to the problem.





You are necessary looking for the "top" or "bottom" of the



market, or the current economic situation. You are looking for a



variety of properties which have a higher value dependent on the



use that can be established for them.





There are always opportunities in Real Estate during good times



and bad, but it is up to you to pick and choose only those very



best deals, especially during times when it appears that Real



Estate values and demand have reached their peak or in times when



it is practically impossible for most anyone to get bank loans



due to the tight money market or impossible interest rates.
