real estate investing: Ten Greener Pastures For Note Investors - 07/09/16 09:00 AM

Many real estate investors are looking to expand into new markets as backyard deals become scarcer and thinner based on demand for product, reduced HUD foreclosures and property values recovering from the mortgage meltdown.  Many are struggling to find deals markets while seasoned and savvy investors are moving into new states to help quench their thirst for higher returns by leveraging their investment dollar.
Those investors exploring new markets are also looking to get out of “brick and mortar” and into the paper game.  Finding deals six to twelve months ahead of REO investors (depending on the foreclosure time frames of states) … (7 comments)

real estate investing: Sometimes Your Dreams Hit Back - 05/12/16 11:28 AM
I love being a real estate investor.  I look back at the last 15 years of investing and I can't believe the type of success and accolades that I've achieved.  But being a successful real estate investor wasn't always my dream.
When I was younger, my first dream of dreams was to play college football at a Division I college like the University of Texas.  I was a pretty good high school player as a tight end/linebacker and was honored to be a two time captain of my high school team, along with a host of other awards and honors.  I was … (2 comments)

What and Where Not To Buy
Do you know the TOP 10 MISTAKES that new investors make when buying investment (rental) properties across the country? There is so much more to consider beyond just cash flow and appreciation. Here they are:
Here they are: 1. Buy new homes - New homes can be fun to live in, but they are rarely the best value as investments.

real estate investing: If There Is No Such Thing As A Free Lunch, What About If You Use Someone Else's Money? - 04/17/09 04:53 PM
I spend a lot of time traveling across the country working with new and experience investors.  It's a joy and passion of my life to help them succeed.  What I run into a lot is helping educate their team members (Realtors and Mortgage Brokers) about the true way to finance their investor's deals.  With the financial markets recovering from a severe tailspin, they often find it hard to believe the we as investors can find properties at wholesale prices (70% of Fair Market Value or Less) along with being able to use other people's money to finance the purchase and not … (0 comments)

            Would you want to invest in an area that had beautiful views, home to several large universities, moderate home prices, and is home to one of the largest defense industry areas outside of the east coast?  Oh yeah, this place was voted as the #1 place to live by CNN Money in 2006.  I would be talking about Colorado Springs, Colorado. 
            I was fortunate enough to spend a week in Colorado Springs with father and son investors, Tom and Kory Kempton.  Tom has spent close to 40 years in building construction and his son, Kory, had spent the last … (0 comments)
