10 Necessary Steps To Establish Infrastructure & Start A Real Estate Investing Business

Real estate investing can be a very lucrative business.

It is one of the only assets where you can purchase assets with a small down payment and reap the benefits of owning that asset.

The majority of real estate investors are just those.... investors. They do not treat their investment activity like a business, therefore they struggle to build their portfolio, bring in more revenue or find success with the niches they use as vehicles.

By treating your real estate investing like a business you will begin to find more opportunities, meet more influential people in your field and earn more money.

When you are just getting started in real estate investing, you have to take on the mindset that every action you take and every deal you pursue will be done with the intention of growing your business.

When buying a property you need to take a cautious approach and have a long term approach. Keep realistic expectations from your investment and ensure your financial stability before you park your savings in a property.

Here are some tips that every first time property investor should take into consideration:

Educate Yourself
Buy at the Right Price
Calculate the Operating Expenses
Know How You Will Finance the Property
Don’t Buy a Fixer Upper
Make the Property Attractive for Renters
Look for a Property Manager

While property has historically shown to yield massive returns but a wrong decision can make your investment a waste. First time investors should particularly make a decision after thinking of all the parameters. It is also advisable to work with a partner when buying your first investment property.
When you have saved enough money, investing in property is a great idea. Property investments have always paid lucrative returns and made many people millionaire. However, as you are required to make huge investments, you definitely need to be extra careful. Any and every investment in property ...

Real Estate Investing Project Manager: Responsibilities, Duties, Payment & Workload

One of the employees that you will consider hiring within your real estate investment business, will be a project manager.

If you do not have a lot of experience managing projects or with construction, a project manager will be an invaluable team member to your business.

If you have extensive construction knowledge and experience as a project manager, this hire may be less useful initially, until you grow and scale.

No matter the circumstance, your project manager will be a vital team member for all of your rehabs.

The risks in being a value-add real estate investor comes when you rehab properties.

The Importance Of Your Material List For Your Investment Property Rehab

So you want to take your real estate investing business to the next level?

As with any business, creating a scalable, successful company has a lot to do with the systems you have in place for each department within your business. An important system to have in place for your projects to flow smoothly is a project material list.

If you have done any renovation work to properties in the past, you understand that no material list can effect your projects in several ways.


If you will be supplying the material for the project, it is very important to have the majority of the material on site immediately after demo or during demo if you can store in a safe location

8 Real Estate Investing Departments To Grow & Organize Your Business

We here it a lot... investing in real estate is not a business, it is an investment strategy.

We want to let you know that, just like with anything there is a right way to go about something and a wrong way.

Real estate is a very lucrative market. According to Forbes " The Real Estate industry has produced a total of 163 billionaires, the third most of any billionaire producing industries.

I find it hard to believe that these 163 billionaires just randomly started investing in real estate and all of a sudden became billionaires.

Do you think that there is any chance that they took a different approach? A business approach?

Just take a look at Donald Bren, now the richest real estate tycoon in America, establishing a net worth of $17 billion dollars and owning a real estate investment firm "Irvine Company"

I would say that this guy and hundreds of others treat real estate investing like a business, wouldn't you?

For Sale By Owner: 4 Quick Tips To Get Listed, Marketed & Sold

Looking to avoid the expensive commissions when selling your home with an agent/brokerage?

I imagine that is the reason you probably ended up at this post.

Since you’re here, I want to let you know that it is very possible to sell your property for sale by owner. However, it can also be very difficult if you do not understand the process, make necessary repairs, and market the property to gain the necessary exposure needed for a successful sale.

Let's face it, between selling your house with a real estate agent/brokerage, closing costs and holding costs throughout the life of the sale we are looking at 9-11% in expenses before our actually net profit.

Now any normal person obviously would like to limit the costs associated with a sale and still try to obtain full market value. The problem is selling for sale by owner is much more labor intensive

You will be in control of the wholesale and will be responsible for getting from the sale to close in a timely and price sufficient manner.

Does Adding Solar Power Increase My Property Value?
In the quest to save money and go green there are more and more solar panel systems being added to homes across the US.

One of the questions that is often asking when it comes to solar panel technology is whether it adds value to a home or not.

The answer to the question is not so simple. In my latest article at +BuzzFeed you find out the answer as I share my expertise on this subject.

5 Tips To Flip A House: The Ultimate Guide

Looking to earn some extra money? Get involved in Real Estate? Or maybe you just want to flip a house because you have seen the TV shows.

If you are looking to do your first flip or you have done several, you understand that the home prices in Syracuse NY are very affordable.

This can be both a good thing and a bad thing. With lower full market value prices, it may be easier to get in the game and get started.

On the "flip" side, with lower priced homes, comes lower margins to profit. Your profit in the Syracuse market will all come down to your ability to find great deals in good local areas.
