Find the Right Investment Deal

Sponsored Content provided by Tyson Emery - Owner, KBT Realty

Everybody wants a deal!

Especially when looking for a new home or a property to invest in, we all want to feel we received value for our money. Nothing feels better when showing off your new property than to be able to say, “…and it was a great deal!”


Foreclosures And Short Sales

When it comes to real estate, foreclosures and short sales often sound like good deals.

A foreclosure means the owner failed to pay his or her mortgage payments and the lender seized the home. The lender (in many cases a bank) now owns the home and often wants to sell it quickly.

A short sale means the owner of the property is selling the house for less than he or she owes on the mortgage. This can sometimes indicate that they have no choice but to sell… and sell quickly.

In either case, it is sometimes possible to get a good price on a home, but it may not always be the best way to go.

One reason to avoid foreclosures and short sales is due to a lack of inventory. Often the availability of these types of sales ebb and flow as the market moves up and down. You may see many foreclosures for a while and then, as the market changes, not see another for quite some time.

Another reason these sales are not always a great “deal” is they typically involve bottom-line numbers and zero emotions. Negotiations might be tough if the owner is already taking a loss on a property or a bank can afford to hold on to a property for a long time.

You can sometimes find a great deal, but it generally comes down to a waiting game of patience and persistence. You need to make sure you are not in a rush and that your real estate agent truly understands the flow of where the market is going and how to stay ahead of it. I call this “finding the next hot pocket.” 


Successful Investors

Investors often want to jump in and have an “I want it now” mindset. If you take your time and work with a professional real estate agent, they can coach you to remain patient and evaluate each property until the true deals are there. You have to think about what is best in the long run.

Whether you are buying a property to hold on to it or buying it to resell, the bottom line is that the numbers have to make sense. Sticking to the numbers and never letting emotions get in the way is the key to becoming a disciplined and, therefore, successful investor. It's easy to get caught up in a deal, then when it is too late, realize that it wasn’t quite such a deal, after all.
