A Guide On Flipping Houses | Real Estate Skills

House flipping is becoming a popular trend in the modern real estate industry. The trend is attracting investors in huge numbers. Maybe you are thinking of joining the trade but still unsure on how to start flipping houses. If so, read on to learn everything you want to know about house flipping and how to get started.

What Is Flipping Houses?

There are varied definitions of flipping homes. However, it simply refers to an investment strategy where a real estate investor buys a property at a discount and improves it for sale at a higher price later. Flipping houses is a strategy for making quicker profits as opposed to buying, holding, & renting. Profits can be quite lucrative if the conditions in the real estate market are favorable.

How To Become A Commercial Real Estate Agent - 3 Tips

The Commercial Real Estate industry is HARD.  Commercial Real Estate is not for the weak hearted; however this article offers 3 pieces of advice that will help cut down your learning curve and perform FAR above the majority of your competition.

FACT: Per Tom Ferry’s website (one of the top producing real estate brokers in the United States) 87% of all real estate agents FAIL and get out of the industry within the first 5 years of being licensed.  My guess is that in the Commercial Real Estate space, that number a lot higher, likely in the mid 90% range.

So why do the vast majority of new commercial real estate agents fail?  Is there not enough business to go around?  Has every property owner already forged their relationships with existing brokers and thus all clients are already spoken for?  Is it a lack of experience in doing deals?  Lack of network, creativity, hustle, etc?

The brutal truth is: it can be a combination of all...

How To Find Cash Buyers & Talk To Them | Real Estate Skills

 

Hey, guys, What's up? It's Alex Martinez, and today's video is How to Talk to Cash Buyers and Find Their Buying Criteria.

First off, cash buyers are the real estate investors that are going to buy your wholesale real estate deals. They are most likely renovators or flippers that want to purchase a property, renovate it and resell it for a profit. You get paid by bringing them this nice deal that you get under contract, and then you sell that contract or assign that contract to them for $10,000 plus. Cash buyers want you, and you need cash buyers to buy your property with all cash.

So, you may be asking, "How do I find cash buyers?" I previously made a video on how to find cash buyers in your area in one minute or less, so definitely check that out, but some other ways are to go to your local real estate investing association, and there you can meet cash buyers.
