Number One Reason For Failure in Real Estate Investing

November 1st, 2018 Comments off

I talk to real estate investors all the time. Some are seasoned pros. Many are “wannabe” real estate investors who are just trying to get their feet wet. I can tell you from experience that there is one and only thing that separates the seasoned pros from the wannabe real estate investors. This one thing will surprise you because it’s not what you think.

It’s not a secret technique. It’s not a special recipe. It’s not a secret phone number. It’s not a list of private money names. It’s something else:


Successful real estate investors take action. They blaze ahead. They plow through. They move forward. They do something. Then they do it again. And again. And again. The wannabe real estate investors who are not successful – and who will never be successful (I’m sorry to say) are those who are waiting for something; perhaps they are still trying to get their paperwork in order or they are trying to figure out their brand or they are waiting for their business cards to be designed and printed. These are excuses! I’m not the only one who says this! I am backed up by experience and by a chorus of other real estate investing experts who believe the same thing.

If you want to be successful as a real estate investor, go work on a deal right now. Don’t just do a bit and then stop. Start working and don’t stop until you have the deal. That’s it. That’s the secret. You don’t have to have all your paperwork in pristine order, that’s okay. It will come. When you need it, you’ll suddenly discover that you can do it quickly. (And, I’m also willing to wager that you’ll be surprised to discover you don’t need as much as you think you do).

So stop reading this article. And go take action right this instant!

Rules Of Thumb For Building A Custom House

January 27th, 2013 Comments off

Choose Your Lot

The hardest part about building your home may be choosing your building lot. Things like location, price, applicable taxes, zoning and density laws and building permits may be just a few of the issues you will be dealing with in getting your buildsite approved for construction.


Banks, credit unions, and mortgage lending companies will give you finance options for your home. Prices range depending on the type and size of home you are planning to have built. Using an architect to draw up your plans will help you get the base price down. Your money lender will always want to see the home plans before lending you any money.

Find An Architect

From California to New York to Arkansas, home plans include foundation, framing, siding, plumbing and electrical details, and can range from as little as $600, to as much as several thousand. It is always best to screen at least three applicants before you hire any professional and architects are no different. All you need to do now is to stop by the bank and show them your building plans.

Don’t Be Too Rigid

Having a custom home built is an enormous project. Expecting the unexpected will help you deal with the inevitable weather delays for contractor disputes so be prepared. You need to be flexible and patient, and know that in order to have your dream home built, it will take time.

Having your own home built can be an exhausting, yet very rewarding endeavor. Nothing in life gets done when you quit, so focus on persevering until you accomplish your goal and complete the project. Not reaching your goal to complete your home construction will potentially cost you everything you have, so failure is not an option.

Understand that this is a simple outline. Plan on using all of your time, in one way or another, to teach yourself as much as you can about construction in general, and you will be far ahead of your competition.

Real Estate Investing Tips to Make Money

October 15th, 2012 Comments off

SUBJECT TO: Subject-to investing means that you are buying a home “subject to” the existing financing. You get the deed to the home but the original owner keeps the mortgage in their name. You take over payments of the mortgage and ultimately sell the deed to someone else.

WHOLESALING: This is where you buy a home inexpensively and then sell it to another real estate investor. You might not make as much as if you fixed up the home and sold it to a consumer but you can flip houses quickly this way.

REHABBING: This is the well-known (and well-televised) strategy of buying an inexpensive home and fixing it up to resell it to someone else. There is some time and money involved in the restoration process but you can dramatically increase the value of your investment.

LANDLORDING: A well-known strategy to buy property and then rent it out to someone else. Although there are headaches with this strategy, you get an ongoing stream of monthly income as well as the appreciated value of the property over the years.

There are other types of real estate investing but these are among the most popular and lucrative and investors are making thousands on these methods right now.
