Number one tip I can give a new investor. - 09/22/08 03:59 PM
Get to know your farm market like the back of your hand. You should have the value pegged. That way you will not work on deals that will not make you money. The key is to quickly kill the bad deals to focus on the right ones. Then when you know your market. How will you get paid? Its really boils down to is the buyer getting a conventional mortgage? If a conventional lender detects a hint of an assignment of contract, the deal is dead. Also, many sellers will not execute a contract with someone who has no intention of (0 comments)
A Basic Understanding of Real Estate Cycles - 09/22/08 03:58 PM
A Basic Understanding of Real Estate CyclesI am sharing my own research which, I use for my own selfish reasons I do not hold my self out as an expert. I am just a Real Estate guy, trying to feed his children! In support of the statement above, I will readily change any and all beliefs, I have, when presented with facts, that would prompt me! Civilization rests on change. This change is cyclical in origin. A rhythmic series of extreme changes constitutes a cycle. When a cycle has completed, another cycle is started. The rhythm of the new cycle (0 comments)
Lee County Florida The Forclosure Trend hasn't abated - 09/22/08 03:58 PM
Lee County Lis Pendens for the Month of July 2008, 2467, up 3 percent from the 2,390 foreclosures in June. In July 2007, there were 1,045 foreclosures.Foreclosures are doing what they're doing, but the good news is that people are buying foreclosures, so at least there is a demand for these.The 3% rise is a little misleading... June = 21 working days.... Jul =22 working days (4th was holiday) - 4.67% more days to get 'em filed. So the trend stayed the same. .I am just looking at the Per-Diem Foreclosure filings now. We are going to reach a point where (0 comments)
Why you should become an Empirical Skeptic - 09/22/08 03:57 PM
First things first, most days I get some sort of prediction from someone about the state of the housing market. I have found that most of these are either driven by an agenda or by emotion. There is too much speculation as to what tomorrow may bring, when today is here, right in front of you. We usually will not know what happened today until tomorrow. So why even focus on tomorrow, when you have today! Use what you learned yesterday. It is often a waste of time and resources to speculate what will happen tomorrow in any sort of detail.
