Basic steps to investing in property to resell or flip.
Whether you are a 1st time investor or a repeater typically the same rules should apply to make a good return on investment. Many would be investors who are not given proper guidance end up buying a property that they get buried in and either make little or no profit.
How do you avoid this you ask? You need to be working with a Realtor that understands the market, someone who is not in for a quick sale and disappears before it is time for the resale because they know how difficult it … (0 comments)

sell: Bonita Springs, Florida. The Undiscovered Country. For Sale - 03/08/16 10:44 PM
There is a wonderful part of Bonita Springs that I discovered the 1st time by making a wrong turn. When I discovered this peaceful area, my wife and I knew this is where we wanted to live. Months later we purchased our current home in a community named Southlands, most people get it confused with the community named Fairwinds to our due north.

The reason for this confusion is because our community sign and one of the two streets in our community are called Fairwinds. Therefore, most of my neighbors and I call this place the Original Fairwinds or Fairwinds 1.

“Confidence among Floridians was already declining prior to any indication of a shutdown and debt ceiling debate,” McCarty adds. “However, there is no doubt that confidence in … (0 comments)

sell: Study: Higher home prices lead to more sales - 10/29/13 10:03 PM

SAN FRANCISCO – Oct. 29, 2013 – If home prices edge higher, the housing market will see higher home sales, according to a new paper by two senior economists with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. The economists note that it’s not that the higher prices entice buyers as much as the higher prices entice owners to sell their homes, thereby helping to alleviate current inventory shortages.
Many sellers are still waiting out the market until home prices rise more, economists William Hedberg and John Krainer write in an article in the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco’s Economic Letter … (1 comments)

sell: How investor owners make their choices - 10/25/13 10:35 PM
American Home passes on stucco homes. Silver Bay Realty Trust avoids cedar siding.
Investment companies that buy homes out of foreclosure or other distress situations usually can’t get inside them to see what kind of shape they’re in. Nor do they have the time or manpower to do so.
Instead the firms use criteria and processes – some still evolving – to ensure a house is a decent bet to pay off in the long run.
For instance, water can get behind the stucco if it isn’t sealed properly, said Lee Budden, a broker with Keller Williams First Atlanta who has … (0 comments)
