Investing in real estate at 60% of appraised value can’t hurt your portfolio!

Photo courtesy of baikahlI have a group of investors that have learned that investing in real estate doesn't have to be venture in losing money like so many investors have in the past year. You see, they learned that you can't really lose money if you are buying properties at 60% of the appraised value.

Why were they able to do this? Because they found out about homes before they even became part of the MLS, or they worked together with other investors and bought a group of homes (Portfolio) from banks at a discounted price and then they divide the homes among themselves.

Why are these investments winning propositions? Two reasons, the first being they plan to hold the property and not re-sell it immediately. This will give the time for the economy to turn around and house values to rise. Then when it becomes a sellers market, they can reconsider selling it. The second reason is because they are buying these properties at prices that make it so as soon as they make it a rental they are immediately having a positive cash flow.

The biggest problem with most people is they are followers. They buy when the see everyone else is buying or start to panic and sell when they see things start to get tough. The richest investors in the world, buy when everyone else is selling and sell when every one else is buying. Right now, everyone is trying to sell because they feel the value of their property has gone down and so instead of holding it until the value goes up, they are willing to lose money, giving you an opportunity to make money from their short sightedness. Then when the market turns around and they start to want buying again because property values are on the rise, you can then start to sell and make a huge profit!

Todd:  This is happening here in Texas too now...  As a matter of fact, all the time!  Since I work mostly with investors, I have found this to be a safe harbor while the rest of the RE industry has really been S-L-O-W!

Todd - this is well said and I agree with Steve that the Texas Market in my area of Houston and Spring is full of investment opportunity!   Can I re-blog?

If you can find good properties to buy at 60 percent of market value, you will always make money. No dobt about that.

Todd - it only makes sense for anyone with money to invest to invest in REAL PROPERTY. As we are seeing this past week - the investments on Wall Street are at best a huge risk.
