It never ceases to amaze me. There are a lot of Snake Charmers in the world that will take your very last penny. Most of them are on late night TV. They want to sell you a prayer cloth that has special healing powers – they want you to place yourself within a “leap of faith”.
You will also find others out there that have “figured it out” and how to get something for nothing. With regard to real estate – it is true you can make millions. You can have all of the bikini clad women and the garages full of expensive and rare cars. You can live in a mansion within the hills of Hollywood California. However, you are not going to do it over night and for a one time cost of $39.95.
You truly need a sit down game plan. We have those “game plans” and offer them in our offices at REMAX of Santa Clarita CA with the Paris911 Team. It is not by chance that we started up these “Investor crash courses” on real estate. We started to gain investors when we first got our feet wet in real estate. Our beginnings were not about anything more than having a license, our investors wanted new agents because they felt we could be trusted more than the seasoned ones. Plus the fact we both came from LEO backgrounds – that was a plus. The Condone Brothers taught both Paris and I a lot. They already knew what they wanted to buy, we were just the licensed part and the part that would not show emotion and keep true to our clients line in the “investor” sand.
Investing in rental properties is extremely attractive these days thanks to the exceptional affordability levels in most markets. While real estate certainly took a dive with the bursting of the housing bubble it still remains an attractive investment for many reasons. Owning rental properties allows your investment to pay for itself over time, sometimes paying for itself in entirety. Owning rental properties also allows for some tax write-offs. Neither of these benefits can be experienced through traditional investing in the stock market, with the exception of some stocks that pay dividends.
The simple philosophy of buying low and selling high has many eyeing real estate. Santa Clarita Real estate prices appear to be leveling off in most areas which leads one to believe that buying now means buying at the bottom. If you can buy investment properties now and hang on to them for the long haul you stand to make a profit eventually, but even more importantly your investment can help pay for itself in the meantime.
It is important to remember that owning a Santa Clarita investment property is not always as simple as it may sound. You have to be ready for issues related to owning property, including repairs, bad renters, and other unforeseen problems that may arise. If you are prepared for the worst investing in real estate just might be the right thing for you.
