Hello and welcome to our website.  

We are Robb & Penny Krautbauer and we want to say thank you for dropping by.

If you are looking for a way to get an above-average return on investment (R.O.I.), backed by a solid asset (real estate), and without the typical challenges of being a landlord, you’ve definitely come to the right place!

Real Estate Investing Without The Hassle

Please take a few minutes to explore the website, watch our short explanatory videos and see what it is that we do here at RobbKrautbauer.com.

We believe that real estate investing, done properly and in an educated, logical manner, is the best investment available for the average person.

However, if it were actually easy, everyone would be doing it!

Here are a few of the challenges prospective investors face:

  • How to learn all the in’s and out’s of investing in properties.
  • Finding the right market to invest in (and the right time to invest).
  • Choosing the right investing strategy and the appropriate kinds of properties to buy.
  • Creating a solid, experienced, and effective real estate POWER TEAM.
  • Managing the deal during acquisition, managing the property during the deal, and coming up with a profitably and timely exit strategy

Fortunately for our investors, we take care of all of this. It’s what we like to call a “Hands-Free Investment” for them.

If you aren’t already on our prospective investor contact list, you are welcome to join us and be the first to know when we have exciting and profitable investment opportunities available. Just put your contact information in the box at the right of the screen, and we will give you access to a short video called “Why Real Estate is An Exceptional Way To Invest“.

Blog #15: How to Profit on Someone Else’s Dime

Most people don’t buy property solely with the money they’ve got in their own pockets. It’s simply not necessary- if the bank is willing to back you up for part of the cost of the property, it just makes sense to let them help you in that way. This is a good deal for people who are buying homes just for themselves and their families, but an even better one when we start talking about people who are buying properties as investments.

The process of using borrowed capital to increase the return on an investment is called leverage. For most investors, this means borrowing money from a bank. When you set out to buy a property, the bank is generally willing to cover between 75 and 85 percent of the cost, with the rest being covered by a down payment made by the investor.

Leverage helps investors to get the most return possible on their investments by reducing the amount of money they have to put down up front, while in no way impacting the value the property might appreciate.

Think about this example. Let’s say a property is listed at 500,000, and the bank covers 80 percent of that. The investor only has to put in 100,000 as a down payment to start out. The property then appreciates in value by five percent, meaning it is now worth 25k more. The property’s value increased by only five percent, but the value of the investment increased by 25 percent.

How is that possible? Well, through the magic of leverage, the investor only paid 100k. The 25,000 they made was a return on the 100k, not the full price. Thus, the investor was able to make a profit of 25 percent instead of only 5 percent. Real estate is one of the only markets in which this is a possibility- the bank won’t pay for you to buy gold, but they will help you finance an investment in real estate. By letting them help you, you help yourself get the most bang for your buck.

Blog #14: Make the Most of the Market

Patience is a virtue, but it’s also really, really nice when good things happen fast. That goes double for your finances and investments- it’s important to understand that making a profit can take time, but it also just makes sense to make an investment that will instantly increase your net worth. That’s not going to be the case for stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. Those types of investments require that you wait out whatever market forces are at play. Even then, there’s no guarantee.

An investment that you’re able to buy at less than its market value? That’s a smart way to go. When you make that investing choice, you’re automatically making money simply by owning the thing you own. But once again, that’s not going to happen with stocks or, indeed, most investments. However a stock is priced, that’s what you’re going to pay for it.

Real estate, however, isn’t necessarily like that. People sell their properties for less than their market value all the time! It may seem like an odd choice for them to make, but it starts to make sense once you think about it. There are plenty of reasons a person would want to get a property off their hands quickly rather than for top dollar. These reasons are usually simply a matter of needing money fast (say, if they’re going through a divorce and want to settle things smoothly), or of just not wanting to deal with the property any longer (like if they inherited a house they’re not interested in living in or renting out).

Regardless of why a seller wants to sell, buying property at a discount when you can is a great choice for investors. This scenario creates one of the many profit centers of real estate, called Instant Equity. Since the property is worth more than you invested in it, if you sell it at market value, you’ve already made money. Think of it as a kind of safety net. You’ve already made a situation for yourself where you’ve increased your own worth. If you run into any kind of problem with the property later on, you’ve at least got the guarantee that it’s worth more than you paid for it.

Real estate is one of the only markets where instant equity is even possible, because it’s one of the only markets where the prices of investments can be flexible. By buying into properties at a discount, you make money without even having to do anything. What’s not to love about that?

Blog #13: Real Estate Keeps on Giving…and Giving…and Giving…

We make investments so that we have money to live on throughout our lives. Especially in retirement and old age, you want to benefit from the investments you made in early life and live off their return without having to worry about your finances. Smart decisions in early life are supposed to set you up to live comfortably when you make it to retirement.

The problem with investment options like RRSPs and mutual funds is that they deplete over time. As you use them, they will eventually run out of money. Not only are you depleting them by taking money out of them to live on, but you’re also taxed on the money you take out until there’s nothing left. Before you know it, your investment is gone. So, what was the point?

These programs are based on the assumption that you’ll be willing to live “under your means” in later life; it puts the impetus on you to reduce your quality of life in old age in order to save money and be able to afford to live during your retirement years.

After you’ve worked hard your entire life, you deserve to retire comfortably without having to pinch pennies or stretch your investments to their last dollar.

Unlike tax deferred savings programs, real estate investments don’t deplete — they keep on giving. That’s why they’re the best investments to make throughout your life so that you don’t have to worry about money when it comes time to retire.

The best thing about real estate is that it appreciates in value. In many places, a $30,000 home in 1967 might now be worth over a million dollars. The longer you hold on to real estate, the more it’s worth. That means you can access that equity in later life and use it tax free to help support your retirement lifestyle.

Additionally, as you pay down the mortgage or financing on the property, your cash flow increases. Not only is the value of your investment appreciating the longer you have it, but you’re also getting to keep more money in your pocket once you’re no longer paying the bank.

You’re also able to pass on your investment properties to family, loved ones, or other heirs after you pass away. The intergenerational benefit of real estate means that your investment is safe and beneficial even after you’re gone.

If you don’t want to live a limited lifestyle in retirement, real estate is the best way to invest for your future. Why worry about your finances after you’ve worked so hard to support yourself for your entire life? Let your real estate investments do the work for you.
