What are the real estate investments in this economy?
I believe the best real estate investments in this economy are probably commercial real estate investments, more specifically multi-family, apartment buildings, mixed use and similar income producing properties purchased correctly. This is where we are currently focusing on the investing and lending side. I have been involved with real estate investing since 1998 and commercial lending since 2002. I agree with many people that residential property for rentals and holding for the long term represents a rare opportunity that many of us may only see 1, maybe 2 times in a lifetime. … (5 comments)

Hard or Private Money for your Real Estate Investing Needs
There are many advantages of using hard or private money to help grow and build your real estate portfolio and net worth.
Real estate investing is by far one of the most common uses of hard or private money funds. We all know that real estate investing is an extremely cash intensive financial endeavor. In order to capitalize on new opportunities, take advantage of ongoing projects, investors often require more operating capital than traditional or conventional banks are prepared to provide on short notice.

Residential and Commercial Rehabs - Prepare for the Worst but Hope for the Best


In all my years of investing if I could summarize my experience as a real estate investor and pass it on the next investor behind me I might say to him, "Prepare for the worst but hope for the best." We never expect to walk into our own project to find the walls stripped for copper or an HVAC unit missing after we close a deal with a distressed seller and we are nice enough to give them a few extra days to move out (an … (0 comments)

Alert - Fannie Mae Changed its Guidelines: Sept. 5, 2008 
On Friday, September 5th 2008, Fannie Mae issued an announcement pertaining to what most of us expected was coming. This has been a topic misunderstood by many investors and even mortgage brokers. Over the last several months many posters have incorrectly stated that Fannie changed their guidelines. Although many lenders implemented their own internal change, Fannie Mae had not until last week. The effective date is supposed to be December 1, 2008 but you'll probably see that many of those remaining true Fannie lenders will change by October 1, 2008. The major … (0 comments)

Safeguards against Contractors Taking Advantage of You and Your Project Profit
There are many reasons most investors will not invest in properties that need repair. They can't find one on the MLS where the numbers work, they have little or no construction experience themselves, and the main reason is probably the tale of a family member or friend who was taken advantage of by a contrator who stole their money and didn't complete the job, whether it was for investment or personal, many hae heads these stories.

Time to Refinance Your Private Hard Money EDC Loan: The Process Explained
The refinance process begins with an initial consultation between the borrower and the loan officer. During the first conversation, it is extremely important for the borrower to discuss what they hope to accomplish with their new investment in real estate. It is then the duty of the loan officer to best determine how to accomplish that goal, with the current qualifications of the borrower. Unfortunately, borrowers often end up in the wrong mortgage product because their lack of communicating what they truly intend to do. Borrowers also must remember … (0 comments)
