Upgrades - Get the Most Out of Your Property

By 

If you are buying and planning on re-selling or renting out, to get the most out of your property you might want to do some upgrades to give it curb appeal. The amount of upgrades needed would depend on a case by case scenario. Obviously if the roof, foundation, etc, needs to be done, that's without question. I am talking about major renovations, but upgrades. That curb appeal and that make a buyer go, "wow" and pay a little extra for the place.

If you aren't going to work with a designer and you would like to do it yourself, I suggest going to the library or buying a bunch of up-to-date home style magazine to get ideas of what's in right now. Knowing your market isn't such a big deal because most everyone wants something chic and stylish. Something I like to call "urban chic"; a lot of clean lines, minimalism and bright open spaces. A Zen like approach. That look is selling to the mass market right now.

How to Nail Your ARV Before You Buy

By 

The biggest reason fix and flip investors lose money is they make mistakes estimating the after repaired value (ARV). Getting the value and the repair budget right, or at least close, is essential to your success. Analyzing numbers on a deal is easy, but coming up with the numbers to plug into your formula can be tricky. Here are five mistakes I see investors and real estate agents make when they are trying to nail their ARV.

Not Adjusting Comps: It is well known that we value real estate from comparables, or comps. Comps simply means comparable properties that have recently sold or are for sale. We also know that we want our comps to be in the same area and the same size. But what if you can't get something that is exactly like the house you are trying to value? Have you heard the term "apples to apples"? This holds true in real estate. If you cannot compare an apple to an apple, you need to adjust the comp to be an apple. Let me elaborate.

Drive for Show, Putt for Dough

Last week I shot a 97. That was my best round yet. I started golfing about 3 years ago, and I am enjoying the challenge. I first took lessons to learn how to hold the club and make contact with the ball, which was surprisingly difficult. I remember that accidentally breaking a club in half was the highlight of my first lesson. Yes, I was swinging hard. I was trying to show off and hit the ball farther than a friend. That was embarrassing. Travis took me to one of his favorite courses for my first 18-hole round. Once again, I thought I had to hit the ball far, so I swung hard. The ball sailed... right into a house. It was not too long before I started consistently hitting the ball, so I recently took lessons to see if I could hit straight. I had hopes to score under 100 this year, so it was satisfying to reach that goal last week. 

The instructor in my recent lesson told me over and over to control my club speed and practice my short game. Keeping the ball in play by focusing on hitti…

Image
Many people appear, to automatically, believe, people, who rent a place to live, aren't able to afford, to buy a home. However, many individuals, don't want to own a house (prefer to rent), for a variety of other reasons. This may be, because they are uncertain of how long, they will live in a specific area, whether they will enjoy the particular neighborhood, aren't comfortable with the unknowns of home - ownership, or don't want the responsibilities, etc. With that in mind, this article will briefly attempt to consider, examine, review and discuss, some of these reasons and considerations. 
1. How long will they live somewhere? Therefore, renting, rather than owning, makes a lot of sense, because, there is no need, to make a definitive, longer - term, decision, and, when one rents, he is, able to be more secure, because the risks, are minimized. 
2. Will they enjoy the particular neighborhood? Many believe, it's nearly impossible, to know, in advance, if he might…

Despite this scenario, the advantages of living in the city still speak best about why there are still may families who choose to dwell in the urban jungle. Transport accessibility.
