hard money michigan: From Charred to Charming - 11/07/14 09:55 PM
Most lenders and investors will not touch a home that has fire damage. Of course the extent of the damage could limit even an experienced rehabber from taking on this type of project.  The fear is not knowing the extent of the damage until you get deep into the work and then you're already committed.  In this case, a real estate investor who is also a Realtor brought a burned property to us where it was contained to the kitchen and hadn't burn beyond the drywall.  As you can see by the before and after pictures below, this rehab project was … (0 comments)

hard money michigan: Hard Money is all about speed. - 09/26/10 02:52 PM
I received a call from a borrower this past Thursday who was referred to our office by another broker who needed to close on a short sale house purchase by next Wednesday, we only had 6 days to close.  Originally the buyer had a partner who was putting up 50% of the money and our client the other 50% but the partner backed out at the last minute and now the buyer needed us to quickly lend the missing 50%.  This is why many buyers will call a private (hard money) lender, we can close that quickly.  I told the borrower to e-mail me their income documentation … (0 comments)

hard money michigan: Who would buy a house in Detroit, sight unseen? - 03/20/10 09:44 AM
The caller says, "Hi, I just bought a property in Detroit for $1,600 cash (yes, sixteen hundred dollars) and need a local hard money lender to lend me money to rehab it, what are your qualifications?"  Sounds like a reasonable requests, right?  So I ask, "Well, let me ask you a couple of questions about the house."  Ready... here comes their response... "I haven't actually seen it, other than the picture in the listing, I live in California but it was too good to pass up!" 
If I hadn't been side tracked with our conversation about California, (after college I moved to San Diego for 23 years … (6 comments)

hard money michigan: Think Detroit when buying REO's! - 02/05/10 07:23 AM
If you're looking for the deals in real estate investments, think Detroit!  Where else can you purchase a property for less than a used car?  If you know what you're buying and have an agent looking in the right places you can buy for under $20,000, put about $10,000 into repairs you can have a house worth up to $80,000 and it'll cash flow.  The rents, typically $800 to $900 a month for a 3 bedroom bungalow, a great return on your investment.  How do I know?  I see it every day in my business.  I'm with Metro Mortgage Investments LLC, a private … (2 comments)

hard money michigan: Hard Money Lending Because I Need the Security of Real Estate! - 01/23/10 02:43 AM
Over the years I have received numerous calls from stock brokers and the like asking me to look into their latest and greatest.  My response has always been, "Truthfully, I don't invest in anything other than private hard money mortgages because that's my business, I've worked in hard money lending and real estate for the past 23 years and I understand it.  I use my Self-Directed IRA to purchase 1st Mortgage Notes and I'm not interested in putting my money into something that is not secured by a tangible asset and I require real estate."  Unless I hang up first, that's … (6 comments)

hard money michigan: Hard Money Investing 101 - 12/19/09 06:40 AM
An investment not mentioned often enough is Hard Money Notes, and I would suggest sticking with individual 1st Mortgage Notes secured by real estate (not a pool or fractionalized interest, I'll explain why in my next article).  Many Mortgage Note investors have been real estate investors in their past lives but are now looking for a more passive real estate investment.   
Purchasing the right Mortgage Note is the trick.  Do you want high returns with a security feature such as an investment property?  If so, then Hard Money 1st Mortgage Notes are what you should consider.  You can find individual Notes as small as $15,000, … (0 comments)

hard money michigan: Using your ROTH IRA to buy investment property. - 12/03/09 04:24 AM
Did you know you, or your buyers can buy real estate through a ROTH IRA?  First you'll have to use a Self-Directed IRA, your typical broker controlled IRA won't be set-up to accomplish your investment plan.  There are several custodians across the country who are truly Self-Directed, such as Pensco Trust Company, Equity Trust Company, Entrust Administration and more than I can mention here.  It's a fairly simple process and can be done with a couple of phone calls and downloads from the company web sites, check them out.  This will not be a taxable event, you're just transferring from one IRA … (2 comments)

hard money michigan: Good news in Detroit real estate numbers - 11/25/09 04:01 AM
As reported in the Wall Street Journal this morning, although home prices were down 9.4% from a year ago, nine out the 20 metropolitan areas in the S&P/Case-Shiller home price index reported monthly increases.  Detroit and Minneapolis had the largest monthly increases of 1.8%.  Read into these figures any way you want but Detroit needs all the good news we can find, be it a one month increase or a one day increase, we'll take it and run with it. 
One thing you'll find with most Michiganders, we're tough and resilient, we have to be, to bare the winters, ups and downs of our local economy and auto industry (and … (2 comments)

hard money michigan: Detroit needs longer term real estate investors. - 09/30/09 11:58 AM
I have buyers calling me from all across the country because of the housing prices here in the Detroit area.  At some point, and it's probably going to take a couple of years, prices will be back and all of these real estate investors who took a chance on Detroit are going to cash in.  Okay, maybe not like the boom years but until then their properties will cash flow nicely and when the prices increase, and it will be slowly, they can sell for a profit. 
The big problem Detroit is facing right now is the deflated prices due to … (0 comments)
