Pursuing Real Estate Investing Freedom? Consider Getting a Real Estate License!

by Clay Huber | August 17, 2012 | on Starting Out | no comments

One of the most highly talked about and debated questions within the world of real estate investing is ‘should’ or ‘should you not’ get licensed in your state? There are numerous articles on BiggerPockets discussing pros and cons and everything in between, but I wanted to throw my $.02 into the debate.There are a ton of financial reasons to pursue the license, but in this article, I’m going to focus on how another aspect. First though, to address what I see as the

Real Estate Networking: Cup of Coffee Persistance

by Clay Huber | August 13, 2012 | on Orange County Real Estate Deals | no comments

Before I begin, ask yourself which statement you’d like to be said about you:A) “This guy/gal is persistent to the point of driving me nuts!”B) “This guy/gal seems to be pretty lazy with their lack of initiative and motivation.”Both statements do contain a hint of negativity as no one wants to be annoying; however, if your annoying of someone is being caused by your passion for persistence, then I would argue that is 100x’s better than annoyance being cau

Buy Where People Want to Live

I was at a business networking meeting a couple of weeks ago and met a real estate investor. As usually happens, we started talking about the state of the market in the area. He couldn’t contain his excitement about a deal he had just closed to purchase a rental property. This wasn’t his first but he was fairly new to the business. The price per square foot certainly seemed like a good deal; the house was in good shape and he was starting to advertise for a tenant. I asked him where the hous

Reaching the Eye of the Storm of Real Estate Investing

by Jason Grote | July 29, 2012 | on Starting Out | no comments

A hurricane generates the same power in one day that the entire world generates in 200 days.Living in Texas, I am well acquainted with hurricanes and the power they contain. The outer bands of a hurricane are where the wind begins to pick up and as it gets closer it becomes increasingly more fierce, until reaching the eye of the storm.  We can liken real estate investing to such a natural phenomena.As a budding new investor or someone on the outside looking for their entrance into the world of

How to Raise Private Money Anytime, Anywhere. Even Over Chicken Wings!

by Clay Huber | July 28, 2012 | on Financing Real Estate | no comments

This isn’t any sort of ground-breaking new real estate principle, but always be ready to talk about your business and private money! I’ve read other articles on BiggerPockets talking about this same principle, and with a recent experience of mine, you can throw me into the category of “believer”.The point of this article is to offer encouragement that these sort of things “do” happen in the real world, and not just in someone else’s life experience. Befo

Is Your Real Estate Business Ready for Another Recession?

by Michael Zuber | July 23, 2012 | on Orange County Real Estate Deals | no comments

The typical definition of a recession is two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth. I predict and expect that both Q3 and Q4 FY 12 will show negative GDP growth with a strong possibility that Q1 FY13 will also be negative.So what is an investor to do if they see another recession coming on the back of 3 years of slow growth after the ending of the “Great Recession”?I believe that successful real estate investing is about understanding local markets and local conditions. However, there

Investors: Be Careful of Misplaced Motivation!

I’m sure many of you have heard the cliche’ saying, practice makes perfect.It’s a great saying, but sorry to say, is 100% wrong. I don’t remember where or how long ago, but I remember someone telling me that which caused the “huh?!?!” type expression on my face.This person then said, perfect practice makes perfect.After soaking it in, things finally clicked, “Ahhhhhh! That makes sense.”  What benefit is the practice if you aren’t doing it p

Dealing With Tenant Drama: Are You Ready?

by Kevin Perk | July 19, 2012 | on Orange County Real Estate Deals | no comments

Tenants are the reason we survive as landlords.  By paying their rent, tenants put gas in our cars, food on the table and hopefully a little money in the bank.  Tenants, however, are human, and being human means they bring drama.  Are you ready for it?Sometimes the drama is petty.“My roommate and I don’t like each other anymore, she needs to leave.”Sometimes it is more serious.“I lost my job.”You as the landlord need to be ready to deal with tenant drama.  Here are my methods of ta
