Addicted to Real Estate - Why I Can't Stop and Why You Should Start

The All-Money-Down Technique

So how can the all-money-down technique work by buying a home with cash? To begin with, let me repeat that I really didn't have any cash, but I'd an important quantity of equity from Terry's home and several homes that I owned assembled to provide me an amazing cash Housers down payment. Banks and mortgage companies alike encourage money from the home-equity line of credit as cash to get a home. At the very least they did in 1997 underneath the financial guidelines of the day. What you must remember about mortgages and lending is that the guidelines change constantly, and this technique I used in 1997 may or might not be able to be used in the future. Whether it is or isn't able to be used again doesn't really matter in my experience as I believe that there will be a method to buy real estate with limited money down sooner or later. There will be a technique to get real estate but just how which is done in the future I'm not completely sure.

I began purchasing homes in the Mayfair portion of Philadelphia with the prices in the $30,000 to $40,000 per home price range. I'd purchase a home with three bedrooms and one bathroom on the 2nd floor with a kitchen, living area, and family area on the first floor and a basement. What we call a row home in Philadelphia would include a porch out front and a backyard the width of the home. Most row homes in Philadelphia are significantly less than twenty-two feet wide. For those who are not from Philadelphia and can't picture what a Philadelphia row home looks like, It is advisable to watch the movie Rocky. Twenty-two homes on each side of each and every block will really test your ability to become a neighbor. Things that will often cause an argument along with your Philadelphia neighbors often stem from parking, noise your young ones make, where you leave your trash cans, parties, and the look of one's home.

In 1998 my girlfriend and I moved in together and to the suburbs of Philadelphia called Warminster. After living on a street in Tacony, just like Rocky did, I really looked forward to having space between my home and my next-door neighbor. I told Terry never to even consider talking with the people who lived nearby to us. I told her if one of them comes over with a fruitcake I'm going to bring it and punt it like a football right into their backyard. I think I was suffering from Philadelphia row home syndrome. My new neighbors in Warminster proved to be wonderful people, nonetheless it took me eighteen months before I was willing to learn that.

So you just bought your row home for $35,000 in Mayfair, and after $2000 in closing costs and $5000 in repair costs, you find yourself a great tenant who wants to rent the home. After renting the home with an optimistic cash flow of $200 per month, at this point you have an outstanding debt of $42,000 on your house equity line of credit that will need to be paid off. When purchasing the home, I did not get yourself a mortgage as I just purchased a home for money as it is said in the business. All monies I spent on this house were spent from the home-equity line of credit.

The move now's to pay off your home-equity line of credit in order to go get it done again. We now visit a bank along with your fixed-up property and tell the mortgage department that you wish to do a cash-out refinancing of one's real estate investment. It helps to spell out that a nearby you buy your property in must have a broader range of pricing as a nearby of Mayfair did in the mid-90s. The pricing of homes in Mayfair is fairly unusual as you would see a $3000 difference in home values from block to the next. This is important when doing a cash-out refinancing because it's pretty possible for the lender to note that I just bought my property for $35,000 regardless of the undeniable fact that Used to do many repairs. I could justify the truth that I've spent more income on my home to correct it up, and by putting a tenant in, it had been now a profitable piece of real estate from an investment standpoint.

Realty Professionals of America

I own an office building that's a real estate company as a tenant called Realty Professionals of America. The business has a good plan where a new agent receives 75 percent of the commission and the broker gets only 25 percent. If that you don't know it, this can be a pretty good deal, especially for a fresh real estate agent. The business also supplies a 5 percent sponsorship fee to the agent who sponsors them on every deal they do. If you bring a person who's a realtor into the company that you have sponsored, the broker will probably pay you a 5 percent sponsorship from the broker's end so that the new realtor you sponsored can still earn 75 percent commissions. Along with the aforementioned, Realty Professionals of America offers to boost the realtor's commission by 5 percent after achieving cumulative commission benchmarks, up to maximum of 90 percent. Once a commission benchmark is reached, an agent's commission rate is decreased if commissions in the following year don't reach a lower baseline amount. I currently keep 85 percent of most my deals'commissions; plus I receive sponsorship checks of 5 percent from the commissions that the agents I sponsored earn. If you'd prefer to find out about being sponsored into Realty Professionals of America's wonderful plan, please call me directly at 267-988-2000.

Getting My Real Estate License

One of many items that Used to do in the summertime of 2005 after leaving my full-time job was to produce plans to obtain my real estate license. Getting my real estate license was something I always wanted to do but never seemed to truly have the time to do it. I'm sure you've heard that excuse one thousand times. People always say that they're going to do something soon while they find the full time to do it, however they never seem to get the time, do they? I try not to let myself make excuses for anything. So I've composed my mind before I ever left my full-time job that among the first things I'd do was to obtain my real estate license. I enrolled in a college called the American Real Estate Institute for a two-week full-time program to obtain my license to market real estate in the state of Pennsylvania. Two terrific guys with a world of experience taught the class, and I enjoyed the full time I spent there. Just after completing the course at the American Real Estate Institute, I booked the next available day made available from the state to take the state exam. My teachers'advice to take the exam right after the class proved to be a great suggestion. I passed the exam with flying colors and have used my license many times since to buy real estate and decrease the expenses. If you will be considered a full-time real estate investor or perhaps a commercial real estate investor, you then almost have to get a license. While I am aware a few people who don't believe this, I'm convinced oahu is the only way.

I done one deal at $3 million where in fact the commission to the buyer's real estate agent was $75,000. By the full time my broker took a share, I walked with $63,000 commission on that deal alone. With the common cost per year to be a realtor running about $1200 per year, this one deal alone would've taken care of my real estate license for fifty-three years. As well as the rest of the fringe benefits like having usage of the multiple listing service offered too many realtors in this country. While you can find other ways to get usage of the multiple listing services or another program similar to it, a real estate license is a great solution to go.

A number of the negatives I hear over and once again about having your real estate license is the truth that you have to disclose that you're realtor when purchasing a home if you're representing yourself. Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see this as a poor at all. If you're skilled in the art of negotiation, it's just another hurdle that you have to deal with. I guess you could end up in case where a court of law could assume because you're realtor you should know each one of these things. I don't spend my life worrying all about the million ways I can be sued any longer than I bother about getting hit with a car each time I cross the street.
