Real estate is intimidating to get into. I really like REITs, but I also own rental property. I think it’s best to do as much research as you can to not get in over your head. But i do LOVE real estate! 4. Buy and hold: You buy rental property and hold on to it. What I have heard from realtor friends is that the wealthiest people they know are buy and hold investors. You are leveraging the banks money and making money on appreciation in the long term. Prep for a 15-20 year hold. You can always refinance and cash out periodically. However, you have to be OK with vacancy periods, tenant headaches and market downturns.

Erick on October 14, 2015 9:58 am by Lex Levinrad Beginning real estate investors are often attracted to the quick money that can be made by flipping deals. Flipping deals by assigning contracts is a very lucrative way to make a very nice living ” when the market is going up. In the previous boom there were many “flippers” that made hundreds of thousands of dollars assigning contracts. I even bought some of my houses from people that flip contracts. These people are known in the business as wholesalers.” Please note that flipping contracts is not the same as flipping houses. Flipping contracts is essentially transferring the rights of a purchase contract to another buyer. There are three main advantages to flipping contracts: Requires no cash ” you can put down as little as $10 on a contract No risk ” if you dont flip the deal you dont lose anything Quick cash ” money in your pocket now There is no doubt that these advantages are the reason why so many beginners are attracted to flipping contracts. The majority of the wholesale real estate books and courses that exist are related to flipping or assigning contracts. It is without a doubt the easiest way to start out with no money and no experience. However, there are also some distinct disadvantages to flipping contracts. The main disadvantages to flipping contracts are: You are dependent on your buyers to close. You make no money if you cant flip (assign) the contract. Whatever money you make in assignment fees is taxable so dont spend it all or you wont have enough to pay the IRS when your tax bill comes due. You only make a small portion of the profit. Here is an Flipping vs. Buying & Holding example: Imagine a house that is worth $100,000 that a wholesaler has placed under contract for $60,000. This wholesaler manages to sell the contract to an investor for $65,000 and makes a $5,000 assignment fee. Wholesalers often sell their deals to rehabbers (people that buy and fix up houses). Rehabbers typically look to buy their houses at 65% to 70% of the after repair value (market value when fixed up). So a wholesaler that signs a purchase contract to buy a house for $60,000 should easily be able to assign this contract to a rehabber like myself for a fee of $5,000. This fee of $5,000 is taxable so after taxes of 25% assume that the tax free cash that is left over is $3,750. This is the maximum amount of profit that the wholesaler can get from flipping this contract. Compare this to the investor that buys the contract for $65,000 on a property that is worth $100,000. That investor has just added $35,000 to their net worth. If this property is held long term then the equity should grow over time and as long as the property is not sold there should be no capital gains taxes due. Even if the property is sold, if the investor completes a 1031 exchange they should be able to roll their profits into their next real estate transaction without paying any capital gains taxes. The profit potential is far superior for the buy and hold investor than it is for the flipper. Consider that at an average annual appreciation rate of 5.8% (the historical appreciation rate of real estate in the U.S) what that house could be worth just five years later (answer: $132,564.84). If you owed $65,000 on this house then after five years you would have over $67,000 in equity. And still you would not have paid any capital gains taxes. As long as you do not sell you will never have to pay capital gains taxes. In fact, you would have been able to take advantage of a tax deduction (interest expense), as well as another tax deduction (depreciation expense) which would have lowered your income tax bill. Take a look at the table below to see what a $100,000 house would be worth over 30 years assuming that it appreciated at this average historical rate of 5.8%. Year value 1.00 $105,800.00 2.00 $111,936.40 3.00 $118,428.71 4.00 $125,297.58 5.00 $132,564.84 6.00 $140,253.60 7.00 $148,388.30 8.00 $156,994.83 9.00 $166,100.53 10.00 $175,734.36 11.00 $185,926.95 12.00 $196,710.71 13.00 $208,119.93 14.00 $220,190.89 15.00 $232,961.96 16.00 $246,473.76 17.00 $260,769.23 18.00 $275,893.85 19.00 $291,895.69 20.00 $308,825.64 21.00 $326,737.53 22.00 $345,688.31 23.00 $365,738.23 24.00 $386,951.05 25.00 $409,394.21 26.00 $433,139.07 27.00 $458,261.14 28.00 $484,840.28 29.00 $512,961.02 30.00 $542,712.76 Buying & Holding Real Estate Makes You More Money As you can see from the above table, buying and holding real estate has tremendous long term wealth creation potential. In the previous example of $100,000 house that the wholesaler flipped for $65,000 the maximum profit potential for the wholesaler was $3,750 after taxes. And they did all the work finding the deal (which is the hardest part). Just five years later, according to the above table the house would be worth $132,564.84. The wholesaler has long since spent their $3,750. However as a long term buyer you would own a property with over $67,000 in equity that would be giving you a tax deduction every year. This is the only true way to build fantastic wealth. By year thirty the house would have no mortgage (no payment) and would be worth over $500,000.

Munns February 3, 2018 at 8:27 pm One potential way to get around this is to make it abundantly clear in your listing that you are selling a CONTRACT to purchase the property, not the property itself. For example, you could include a short paragraph in your listing that reads something like this… How To Build A Pro Cash Buyers List The asking price of $75,000 in this example would be 50% ARV but again your numbers may turn out 50-65%. Get Started Now 90 Comments I never saw the book on wholesaling. Maybe i missed it, could you point me in the right direction please? ABOUT My cut from our broker is actually 100 percent, but I will use 90 percent because that is more common By the time I got to this point with one of my properties, it had become clear that if I could do it all over again, I wouldn't have sunk my own money into this property. It would have been far better for me to simply assign the Purchase Agreement (if I even could) rather than buying it outright. As you can imagine, if there's ever something wrong with a property – it's better for this problem to be in the Seller's lap than mine. PRG - Long Island, NY So to make things clear, the assignment fee is the money your profiting? In your example, that $5,000 is all going to your pocket? Stretching yourself, after exhausting your favorite ideas, is always exhausting. Thank you for a reference that will help the rest of us spark new ideas. As for the amount, I think the higher you put into an escrow account, the more likely the seller will be willing to work with you… but with the sellers I work with – $5K isn’t necessary. In most cases, I don’t put anything down as an earnest deposit, because the sellers I work with are highly motivated and don’t have any other options, so I don’t usually have to worry about losing them. Granted – it can still happen, so if you don’t use a deposit, you’re basically running that risk, with very little recourse for them breaking the agreement. That is an extensive list and a great reference for anyone looking to choose a niche in the real estate investment world. I sell real estate here in Beaufort SC and have seen a sharp increase in rent prices and demand. Many of the ideas noted in the list rely on a good rent to cost ratio. Real estate prices got so high they got ahead of rents and the investment model did not work on many properties. Now with rents going up and purchase prices going down there are some opportunities for good investments.
