Higher Returns and Less Risk!

Started by Michael Galvan. Last reply by Michael Galvan Aug 21. 2 Replies

I am a believer in high returns with less risk.  It is a myth that you must take greater risks to achieve higher returns.  If you are interested in getting higher returns and keeping your risk low then consider using leverage.  Leverage comes in…Continue

Tyler Peterson this group is about creating wealth for the long term and the main focus here is real estate.  As a real estate broker myself I can tell you that there are many tips, within the group discussions, that would help you understand the business concepts required to be successful as a real estate broker.  If you would like some one on one help you can reach me at mike@gallydevelopment.com and I would be glad to help you where I can.  I have been in the real estate business for 17 years and have been involved in more than 75 million dollars in transactions on both the commercial and residential sides of the business.  Let me know how I can serve you.

Hi all-

Is this group more about real estate as an investment?  Or, is it good for prospective realtors for tips, etc?  I want to get my license so I thought I would check.

How to market & get good residents?

Seven years ago we decided to try the "buy-renovate & resell" idea (flipping?). By the time we fixed places, the economy turned & we ended up renting instead.

I own 2 properties in town - a house and a duplex (2-2 bedroom units) for rent.  I have 2 vacancies now (out of 3) and it seems that it takes months to get a good tenant (let alone an applicant).  I get a lot of responses to my Craigslist ads and some from the world-known major hospital's online ads. One house is walking distance to the clinic.
I continue to get a lot of "unqualified" callers, meaning - they cannot afford it or they have pets or smoke. I am NOT on a mission to provide free housing.   My application process includes obtaining a credit report (which I do online), verifying income & bank balances & references. Perhaps I am afraid of getting a bad resident so the process is there to avoid that. I have heard too many stories of renters not paying and the property manager having to get a court eviction and then spend more $$ fixing up damages.
I follow the legal requirements of the Fair Credit reporting act and non-discrimination, etc.  I screen my callers before I show the place, but screening callers is a process I don't enjoy.  Eventually I'd like to sell both places, but at this time, it would be nice to have them fully rented so I can get in the black.
I still spend too much time showing my places and good prospects not applying. Perhaps I should encourage them to fill the application at the time they view the property?
Your ideas are welcome.

Thanks for the info Thomas. Will take some time this week and look it over and get in touch with you about it.

Comment by Thomas H. Riche on February 19, 2013 at 4:15pm

Jini, I havet't posted on this board in several months and decided to catch up on posts today.  After reading your post regarding RE Development & PM, it reminded me of myself several month ago.  I came to to the realization that I did not know the first thing about real estate, but after retiring from my Job and going to a local real estate meeting with a friend, I thought I might get educated.  That meeting was just enough to whet my appetite.  I wanted to learn as much as possible because my mother, who is now 85 and in a nursing home, has property which is being rented, and neither my sister nor brother have any interest in managing this property and none of us have been educated in this field.  To make a long story short, I found a real estate education company that teaches everything I needed to know, and much much more about the entire field of real estate.  I purchased this education and joined the company.   If you or anyone on this board is interested in this basic to graduate level education, just leave me a post or go to www.getrichewiththomas.com

Hi everyone,

I don't know if this has been addressed before as I am just studying the information in this group.

My question: Is Real Estate Development & Property Management the same thing? If not, what's the difference?

Yours in Success...

God bless..

Hi everyone,

I am interesting in starting up a company here in Belize that buys residential and commercial properties, develops them and then rents/least/resells them, but I have no idea how to go about doing any of this.

If anyone could help me I would sure appreciate it.

Yours in Success...

God bless..

I invite you all to join a new group I started named Real Estate Agents.

The Real Estate Agents group is intended to provide a forum for licensed Real Estate Agents to exchange ideas, discuss trends, ask/answer questions, refer clients to one another, and provide info to the public.  The Real Estate Agents group is also for members of the general public for them to ask questions and keep in tune with the real estate market.
