Like you, I have heard that it’s not the same anymore, you can’t get financing, and it’s in the tank.
Despite all that has happened over the past four or five years, there has never been a better time to take a good serious look at real estate.
Real estate has helped create more millionaires than any other business on the planet. Money will always be in real estate.
The rules have changed, and it looks like a different game, but it really is the same one.
One real estate proponent (sorry, lost his name) gives us some reasons to invest in real estate on which I have added some comments:
Real estate allows you to create large paydays in a single transaction. A new car, or vacation, or ???, is one transaction away. Instead of thinking, “I can’t afford it,” you can now think, “How can I complete one transaction?”
You can operate your business without employees or renting office space. I have owned businesses in which I had a staff of personnel. The costs were mind boggling. If you have a computer, printer and phone, you can be in the real estate business.
You can make money without EVER purchasing any property. It was Nelson Rockefeller, former US Vice President for President Gerald Ford, and at the time one the wealthiest men in America, who said: “The secret to success is to own nothing, but control everything.”
You don’t have to go get bank loans. There are various options available for those who desire to purchase real estate. Although the federal government is trying its best to curtail private lending, you can still engineer a transaction in which both parties win.
Despite what many people think, you don’t need good credit. While good credit may increase your options, it’s not mandatory. Some of the most profitable transactions I’ve completed have been in situations where I didn’t need a good credit rating.
You don’t need your own capital. Newbie real estate investors are always surprised to learn this little secret. When structured properly, there are investments ready today that need little or no cash from you.
It can almost instantly give you the lifestyle of you desire. While this point is a bit of an exaggeration, the principle is sound. Real estate investing is a business. As such, you need a plan in place. When you work your plan, it is possible to earn as much income as you desire.
When you add into the mix that we have the lowest real estate interest rates in recent history, low rental vacancies and low real estate prices, you have an opportunity not available for decades.
Real Estate Brokers, if financial security is your goal, you will make much more money if you invest in real estate instead of selling it – PLUS you can get a commission when you buy. I have purchased a lot of real estate and got my fee, too.
