Real Estate Investing
DescriptionHave you ever heard the old saying, "Buy low, sell high?" News stories about the softening real estate market might scare away some novice investors. Experienced investors, however, recognize weak markets as opportunities to pick up bargains. When there are more sellers than buyers, your chances of getting a good deal go way up. In fact, many investors make more money in a down market than in a strong one. In many areas, now is the time to buy before prices start climbing again. In this course, you'll learn how to make money in any area, in good times and bad, even if you have little money to start with.
Real Estate Investing includes specially designed worksheets and hands-on activities to take the guesswork out of your investing efforts. By emphasizing systems and service, this course will help you do more with less effort while serving the needs of your buyers and sellers.
We'll start by developing a plan for your own investing efforts based on your personality and investing objectives. We'll cover the proven methods used every day by full-time, professional real estate investors. You'll learn how to invest in foreclosures, manage a rehab project, and build your team of real estate professionals (title officers, lawyers, accountants, mortgage brokers, appraisers, and more). We'll also explore the effects of higher interest rates and cover alternative strategies for a changing market. By the end of the course, you'll be working toward your first (or next) deal.
This course provides straight talk about real estate that will help you profit from the tremendous opportunities available to investors right now.
