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

subject .​

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.
