  • 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.

Blog #18: Appreciate that Appreciation!

All markets fluctuate based on external factors such as supply and demand. Your gold is worth one sum now, but in a few months might be worth much less or much more. It’s a little tricky to anticipate and keep track of where that value is going.

The real estate market comes in cycles, too. A key factor in real estate as an investment, however, is that real estate tends towards gaining value, or appreciating, over time. The supply of property doesn’t really change too much, but the demand keeps growing because people always need a roof over their heads. 

The thing about this kind of market is that it ebbs and flows like tides. Sometimes, the appreciation that takes place is strong and fast, and other times, it’s gentler and slower. You have to have the ability to be patient. 

An option that’s going to be a good, safe idea in the long run would involve buying property and waiting to resell or refinance it. The value will come, it just takes time. You might be able to sell your property at 200% of the price you bought it for, but that kind of thing is typically going to take some years to get in motion. 

That’s alright! As long as you have that property, you can be making money through the numerous other profit centers of real estate, like cash flow. The trick with appreciation is that you need to be patient, and good things will come to you.

Another awesome factor in this is that, when you buy a property, you generally finance it through a bank, which can cover 75-90% of the cost of the real estate. So, when you buy a property worth 400,000, you might only put down 100,000 for the down payment (and closing costs, etc.) with the bank covering the rest. Let’s say that that property then appreciates by 10%. It gains 40,000 in value- that’s a 10% return on the total previous value of the property.

But it’s a 40% return on the 100,000 you put in. Nifty, yeah? Leverage and appreciation work together in wonderful ways.

But you’ll need to get started if you want to see the full effects. Since these things have such a timeframe, starting as soon as possible is key to watching your net worth grow and grow. 

Real estate is a fantastic investment for the short and the long term. You can make money every step of the way. You just need to get started!

Blog #17: Get Your Mortgage Down, and Your Profit Up!

Real estate has a few things going for it that other types of investments don’t. You’ll recall that we’ve already talked about some of them, like the neat way that banks will help you out in investing in real estate by financing you via a mortgage.

But mortgages aren’t all fun and games. Not only do you have to pay off the principal part of the mortgage (the actual amount borrowed), you also have to pay interest. Doesn’t sound great? Well, a great thing about real estate is that there’s a way around it. As the previous post mentioned, your tenants will be the ones paying the mortgage, not you. But there’s more to it than that.

Most of the payments you make to your bank for the mortgage will be, at least in the beginning, going towards interest, rather than the principal. You want to get that whole mortgage, both principal and interest, paid off ASAP in order to reduce the expenses associated with the building and increase the profit margin of your cash flow.

So, here’s what you gotta do. In addition to the regular payments you have to make towards the mortgage, it’s a good idea to make some extra payments to the bank, at least in the beginning, in order to knock out that interest as quickly as you can. That way, you can start chipping away at the principal portion of the mortgage, and start seeing your profits soar.

And you’re not doing this alone. As previously stated, it’s your tenants’ money, not yours, that covers this bill. You just need to make sure you’re putting the cash where it needs to go.

Paying down your mortgage is a secret towards maximizing your real estate profits. It doesn’t seem as obvious at first as other profit centers like cash flow, but mark our words, if you play your cards right, you’ll be seeing some big savings on your property. And that, friend, is money in your pocket.

Blog #16: Watch the Cash Flow

Cash flow is one of the simplest profit centers of real estate, it’s just straight-up profit. Cash flow refers to the money left over after all the expenses on the property are paid. The expenses associated with a property vary depending on what sort of property it is, but generally include:

  • Mortgage
  • Property Taxes
  • Insurance
  • Management
  • Maintenance

These things can add up, but by charging appropriate rent on your property, you cover all these expenses and have cash leftover for yourself. Say the property’s expenses add up to about 1000 dollars a month. Charge 1200 for rent, and your cash flow is 200 dollars a month. Once you have a few properties, that profit starts to add up, too.

There are a few basic ways to max out your cash flow. You want to minimize your expenses, and a good way to do that is to pay off your mortgage as quickly as you possibly can.

The mortgage is typically the largest expense on a property. So, once you get that beast out of the way, you reduce your expenses drastically. At that point you’ve drastically reduced your expenses, and thus, you get to keep a much bigger portion of that rent you’re charging. Awesome, right?

Another factor involved in your cash flow is the number of rental units you have on a single property. While a single family home provides a single stream of income, a duplex or a little apartment building presents you with several. In this way, you’re provided with a greater gross amount before expenses, and thus, the cut you have to give to the bank, insurance company, etc., has less of an impact on your profit.

Cash flow is one of the coolest profit centers in real estate, because it’s so passive. All you have to do is collect the checks. Renting out the property pays for itself if you do it right! So, make sure you’re doing it right! The rent you’re gathering for a property should always be greater than the expenses associated with that property. You don’t want to pay for a property you already own, right? You want it to pay you.

So, collect those checks, and keep your head on your shoulders. This part is so easy, it’s crazy.
