1. Why Real Estate Investment?

Why all the talk about real estate investing? A lot of reasons.

1. Well, for starters, investments in real estate has produced wealth for millions of average Americans.

2. It's simple, it's easy to understand, real estate investment property is tangible.

3. Real estate holds its value pretty well, often grows in value at a pace faster than inflation.

4. Your real estate investments are capable of producing phenomenal profits and returns on investment if bought and sold right (we'll talk more about what "right" means).

5. Real estate investment properties could be a great rental cash flow vehicle, you can get nice monthly payments that could potentially replace your dependency on a paycheck

6. Investing in real estate has a residual income potential: you do the work once and continue to get paid many months and years later.

7. Real estate can provide high rate of return, maintenance and management free investments for people who've already accumulated cash - by investing in mortgages secured by real estate, or buy creating your own note with owner financing.

8. Finally, real estate investments have preferential tax treatment allowing for valuable write-offs, and tax deferred treatment for profits from capital gains on sale of the property.

2. Common Misconceptions About Real Estate Investing

Typically, the main argument of real estate 'nay-sayers' is by associating real estate investments with toilets, bad tenants, damages, evictions, etc. - all the bad things that may happen to an investor getting ready to jump into the real estate game.

For somebody who believes the only thing to real estate is getting a loan and buying a run-down duplex in a bad part of town real estate could certainly turn into a major nightmare very quickly.
However, an individual open to possibilities and willing to learn will quickly discover - that's not the way to be doing real estate.

Much more profitable strategies exist for doing business without management headaches, without having to deal with bad clientele, and without having to constantly worry about how often one's tenants clean their toilets.

Modern real estate thrives on doing things smarter, not harder.

3. Disadvantages Of Investing In Rental Real Estate Properties

One of the major disappointments of the conventional, 'rental' approach is there's just no money in it NOW, only after a long period of ownership.

There's not enough spread between the income from rent and the expenses of mortgage payments and repairs for the investor to make any money today.

You barely get by in the early years of your ownership of the property. You've got to have other income to support your lifestyle, you can't just count on the rentals to support you.

Most likely, in the beginning you'll be supporting your properties with your other income. That's not too attractive.

Yes, if you stick to it, there's a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. In fact, I will be selling one of my rental properties within next year or so, at a profit of $172,000.

That's a lot of money for most of the population of the United States. Bought it for $128,000 and today's market value is $300,000.

But it took long 8 years of management and maintenance headaches. Trust me, these were REAL headaches: vandalism, fire, evictions, rent loss, repairs, etc.

A lot of us don't have the stomach to endure the rough and tough financial stresses of the rental business. Even more people don't have the desire to. I certainly didn't enjoy it.

4. Becoming a Successful Real Estate Investor

Working smarter, not hard is the key. The good news is, there are better and faster ways to make money with real estate. I discovered them while waiting for my rentals to increase in value so I could sell them.

For instance, not long before writing this issue (this issue was published in May 2001) I sold 4 homes with a gross profit of about $160,000. All of these homes I bought in the preceding 90 days.

That's not bad for 90 days of work. In reality, however, I didn't spend but 8 hours of work into each transaction. If you ask me that's a high rate of pay for some 40 hours of work.

I've only been to each of these homes once or twice: first to sign the purchase contract with the Sellers and then to check upon the completion of remodeling by my contractors.

I've exchanged a few e-mail messages with several prospective purchasers. I spent a few hours in front of my computer preparing the paperwork and another hour or so to meet with each Buyer in my office to sign the papers.

All my clients are nice people who are extremely happy to do business with me and grateful to be able to benefit from my service.

However, a very important part of our relationship - it's not Landlord/Tenant like. They'll never call me on the phone if something breaks. I just don't want to hear about faulty toilets, leaky faucets, A/C not cooling enough, etc.

I do deliver the homes in good repair and condition at the time of sale, though. After that, it's Buyers' responsibility to take care of them.

5. Attracting Financing For Real Estate Investment Projects

Show me the money!

That's the first question I always hear from the beginning investors: Where do I get the money to buy homes? I need to finance my deals. I ain't got any money, so how can I be successful in real estate?

Let's make one thing clear: You Don't Need To Have Your Own Money Or Credit To Make A Ton Of Money With Real Estate.

Please note, I didn't say you don't need money or credit. I said you don't need your own money or credit.
Some strategies don't call for any money - we’ll talk about them in future issues.

Others do require some forms of financing.
But you should be worried about other things than your ability to get conventional financing, when you start. You need to get good at understanding what a bargain deal is, what a favorable financing is, and how to find bargain deals, or deals with favorable financing.

Either one of these two will translate into profit very easily.
Once you get to that point - the money will flow to you. This is profound. I didn't have money when I started and I still don't use my own money, most of the time.

People with money are always looking for people with great safe ideas and projects. And you'll be supplying those great projects.
You'll find the deals and then you use OPM - other people's money to fund the deals. The money does have a way of finding its way to you, once you have a reputation.

Real Life Example
: What May Happen After You've Been In Real Estate Investing Game For A While

Just a month ago, a man walked into my office with some serious dough. He wanted to write me a $100,000 check on the spot and buy partial interest in some of the deals I had in my pipeline.

Because he didn't have the "know how" to put these cash flowing deals together. Most of my homes are producing a NET positive cash flow over $400-$500 a month. That's after paying the mortgage.

For someone with the capital and no free time to work on putting these deals together - it's a great opportunity to invest money at high returns -- without having to do the hard part, creating the income stream.

You shall be able to develop this kind of magnetic power over money once you start learning and practicing your real estate skills.
