How Do I Know If This Property Is A Good Deal Or Not?

October 3rd, 2014 by Jarad

Is it a good deal?One of the most common questions I get a lot is “How Do I Know If This Property Is A Good Deal Or Not?” In fact, a gentleman this week asked me this same question… He said, “you are absolutely right when you say that people fail in real estate…its because they are afraid they wont be able to sell the house later… I am one of them. I have come across more than one opportunity to buy houses and I do not take them for that specific reason. Another reason that keeps me from making offers is trying to figure it out if its a good buy or not… how do I know if it’s a good deal? Will I be able to rent it if I decide to hold it?

I would like to spend some time explaining to those who might be having the same challenges and hopefully shed some light on the situation so anyone can gain more confidence making more offers, because ultimately, that’s the only way you are going to make any money. [Continue Reading...]

The Pros and Cons To Landlording

What are the Pros and Cons to Becoming a Landlord?

tenants moving in rental propertyI was asked the other day about the pros and cons to landlording, so I thought I would write up a quick post of my experiences. Most of us have heard the horror stories about becoming landlords and owning rental properties.

Like everything out there, landlording definitely has its pros and cons. When I say landlording, what I’m referring to is owning rental properties. Whether or not you choose to outsource the property management is really up to you. [Continue Reading...]

Thinking About Wholesaling? Wait Until You Read This.

December 13th, 2013 by Jarad

Should Beginners Wholesale Properties

house to wholesaleThere was an article on wholesaling I read the other day that has been keeping me up the last few nights thinking about. I actually agreed with most of what the author was saying, except for one major piece – that beginners should NOT start out wholesaling properties…

It made me think a lot about this business, students, why some succeed and others don’t… And he’s right, most people do not succeed investing in real estate. That’s the honest truth.

Several years ago, when I was at an event, listening intently to what the speaker was saying, a gentleman leaned over to me with his arms folded [Continue Reading...]

Buying Distressed Properties For Pennies

September 11th, 2013 by Jarad

Buying Distressed Properties For Pennies

A few days ago, I sent an email out regarding buying distressed properties.  I wanted to show you a quick glimpse of some of the deals we are seeing and doing.  I show you these numbers not to brag, but so you can see what kind of opportunity is out there in the marketplace.  And you’ll see that you don’t have to have a lot of money to turn a quick profit and quadruple your investment.

Over the past 2 years, we’ve been using this strategy to buy and sell distressed properties.  We’ve bought and sold over 500 properties this way and with what we are seeing, there are no signs of slowing down any time soon.

Here are some of the properties we’ve sold recently… [Continue Reading...]

Free Proof of Funds And Proof of Funds Letters

August 17th, 2013 by Jarad

Free Proof of Funds Letters

Proof of Funds LetterAs you invest in real estate, one of the many things you will come across is proof of funds. This is just one of those pieces you need especially when you are doing any sort of quick flip where a bank is involved. The banks whole purpose in requiring proof of funds is to make sure you, as the investor, actually have the money to close your side of the transaction. They just want to make sure you are a legitimate player.

Can you blame them? What would you do if you were selling a property and you had two offers come in – one that would pay all cash, close on the date of your choice and backed it up with a bank statement, or one that needed to get conventional financing with no proof of funds letter? It’s obvious which offer you’d accept even if it was a lower offer. [Continue Reading...]

Hi Jarad,
I ordered your Fortunes in Foreclosures package. The best information I have found thus far on how to do "Short Sales" I have spent thousands of dollars and have even sent some of the materials I purchased (yes the more expensive ones) back because it did not give me the information I was looking for. I was in the middle of doing a short sale and needed more information that the expensive packages I had just purchased did not even offer. I really do appreciate the materials you have put together.
