Jarek BucholcJarek Bucholc   July 21, 2016   3093   0   3   0   0   1

Why You Should Join a Real Estate Investment Club Whether you are a novice real estate investor or you’ve been in the industry for a considerable number of years already, there’s always room to expand your horizons, to meet different people, to learn new trends. And that’s what being part of a real estate investment club is all about. If you’ve always been an independent investor, and therefore have never joined a professional organization before, you’ll initially ask yourself: what’s in it for me? Well, there are many reasons to consider joining an investment club, but here are a few of the most important ones: It can offer networking opportunities. How successful a business is largely depends on how well its owner creates and expands on his network, and real estate is no exception. In an industry where building connections plays a vital difference between closing successful deals and making do with lukewarm client reception, having the support of...

Private Money Lenders
Jarek BucholcJarek Bucholc   July 06, 2016   7592   0   2   0   0   0
Finding a private money lender is an essential part of any real estate investor's business. One of the keys to finding a good private money lender is determining if they have similar goals and objectives as yours. So how you determine if you and the potential private money lender have similar goals. You need to discuss your plan and ask questions similar to a job interview. Advertisement Finding a private money lender is an essential part of any real estate investor's business. In the old days (pre 2006) you could easily get a mortgage or even hard money loan simply by showing up in the lenders office and filling out an application. If you could walk and talk you qualified for a loan. But today in the post credit-bubble market those days are over. Getting money for your real estate investing business is much more difficult and likely to get even...

Real Estate Investing and Hard Money Loans
Jarek BucholcJarek Bucholc   July 04, 2016   7238   0   2   0   0   0
Maybe it sounds too good to be true--the profit that real estate investors make from buying houses and immediately selling them for a higher price (a technique known as "flipping" the property). Or maybe you believe it can be done, but only by an "inner circle" of real estate professionals. The good news is that anyone can invest in real estate, even if they have poor credit, no job and no money to pay down. ',' How is that possible? Through hard money lending. Hard Money Lending in a Nutshell Hard money loans are a form of real estate financing that is virtually risk-free for both the borrower and the private lender, because hard money loans are asset-based--the quick-sale value of the house serves as the collateral. Many times, there's no need for a personal guarantor! Hard money loans differ from conventional mortgages in that the money...

Wholesaling Real Estate - Low Risk Investing
Jarek BucholcJarek Bucholc   July 02, 2016   17899   0   3   0   0   2
Wholesaling real estate can be a great way to get into real estate investing without much cash. It is also very low-risk when done right. But contrary to what many real estate gurus say, you can't necessarily do it anywhere. It will work best where there are investors ready to take the properties from you. This generally means it works best in larger towns and cities. To understand this, let's look at what wholesaling real estate means. As you might guess, it essentially is buying cheap to sell for a profit to another investor. This other investor is the one who will then retail the property to the final buyer. Now, if you were to actually buy a house or other real estate and close on it, you would have transactions costs. There would be more transaction costs when you sell to the next investor. Then there would be more transaction costs when...

Wrong Ways of  Investing in Real Estate
Jarek BucholcJarek Bucholc   June 24, 2016   3936   0   2   0   0   0
"Real estate fever" it is spreading in a Country likes a plague. There are several "newbies" are striking the bandwagon, trying to craft a profit where they lost in the stock market. I get together them all the time, in addition to many are making big mistakes! Stock Market Mentality You don't think after losing seven trillion dollars in the stock market people would have learned! Nope, they are making the similar mistake, which is presumptuous what happened the recent past will happen tomorrow. Nine of ten up-to-the-minute investors I meet say they are concerned in real estate since they saw someone else make money from the rapid positive reception of the market over the last few years. But, buying real estate solely for short-term appreciation is often a big gamble! If you acquire real estate to hold for fifteen years or more, the chances are you will move toward out on top. If you buy a property as...

No-Doc Loans
Jarek BucholcJarek Bucholc   June 07, 2016   5425   0   2   0   0   0
What are no-doc loans? "No doc" is short for no documentation. These are loans for which the bank or other mortgage lender doesn't require any documentation of income or employment. It doesn't quite mean no documents at all, and in fact, it can mean different things to different lenders. When we got the loan on the house we are in now, for example, we didn't provide evidence of income. We didn't have jobs at the time. In fact, the lender made it clear that we shouldn't even mention what our reported income was. We did have a new business that was becoming very profitable in recent months. However, the previous year's tax return would have shown an income too low to qualify us for a loan. We qualified based on credit scores alone. Fortunately, both my wife and I have always paid everything on time and had good scores. We did have to...

Bank Of Canada Holds Steady on Overnight Rate
Keith UtheKeith Uthe   May 26, 2016   1134   0   2   0   0   0
At 10:00 am EST, Wednesday May 25th, 2016, the Bank of Canada maintained their overnight rate which in essence means no change to the interest rate on your variable rate mortgage, line of credit and/or student loans. This is good news for the amount of interest that you will pay, but we also have to recognize that it is a reflection of the slow economy. Summer looks like it is finally on its way with the weather warming up; are you thinking of some renovations or consolidating some debts that don’t seem to be going away anytime soon? It is never too late, or early, to start planning for the future especially as rates are still at historical lows! The Bank of Canada is still concerned with the financial vulnerabilities and regional divergences underway in Canada’s economy. It is still anticipated that rates won’t start increasing until well...

The Current Rental Market in YYC & Fort MacMurray
Bill BikoBill Biko   May 13, 2016   1113   0   2   0   0   0
The Current Rental Market in YYC & Fort MacMurray Currently we are anywhere between 7-9% vacancy on rentals depending on which service or how you calculate vacancies. While this is high compared to what we’ve used to when we look back to the early 2000’s or even 2009/ time frames it’s not outrageous. As the economy slows or goes bad vacancies go up, welcome to reality. What landlords fail to look at is the occupancy, it’s still in excess of 90%. So anywhere from 91 to 93 out of 100 units are still rented out. Digging deeper, there are many units out there that with landlords who were able to jack up their prices when vacancies were 1 and 2% and they put zero money back into their properties. They were simply slumlords. These slumlords now find themselves in the precarious position of...

Finding hot leads is the main challenge for any real estate investor. One of the most popular and effective ways to find wholesale deals is called "driving for dollars," which simply means driving around targeted neighborhoods to locate ideal wholesale properties. Another option you can resort to is to have someone drive for you - a bird dog or a property scout. Good thing is that either way will work out depending on your resources or in other words how much time and money you have. Gaining success in finding the right deals also depends upon how willing you are to go all the way in real estate investing. Also, you need to consider your situation. Let us say if you're a full time realtor, you can do the search yourself, find the deals on your own and discard the idea of paying a bird dog. On the other hand, if you are employed full-time, it would...

What is Foreclosure?
Jarek BucholcJarek Bucholc   April 18, 2016   2921   0   1   0   0   0
Foreclosure is a court action taken by the mortgagee or the lender asking the court to cancel the equity of redemption to the mortgagor. The second and third mortgages should have a clause saying that if first is in default, the others are automatically in default too and they can take action against the borrower or the mortgagor. Redemption is the right of the mortgagor to have clear title to the property after paying the loan fully. Redemption period is usually provided to pay off interest, fees and back payments. There are basically two types of foreclosures. The first one is called Judicial. In this type of foreclosure, the mortgagee petitions the courts and begins a lawsuit against responsible parties. The second type is Non-judicial. With this, the power of sale has the processes covered in the mortgage documents. Lenders have the right to sell the property. On the power of sale process, happens quickly. It...

Are You Ready To Raise Capital?
Marcin DrozdzMarcin Drozdz   February 15, 2016   1485   0   2   0   0   0
Debt or Equity? That is the question. Amongst all the things to think about when starting, growing or exiting a business; one of the most important considerations underlining your decision should be on how to capitalize your company. Nearly all businesses need to raise capital to start, grow and succeed. That said, the type of capital you raise could very well determine your level of success OR the limitations of your enterprise. Saddle your business with too much debt early on and you could crater under crushing payments. Give away too much equity and you might lose interest in your own company. Your drive, idea and team are all important components however without a proper capital structure you’ll likely find your business hobbling along… wondering why it hasn’t taken off like it should. Capital comes in an endless variety of shapes and sizes however it all generally boils...

6 Keys To Accessing All The Capital You Need
Marcin DrozdzMarcin Drozdz   February 11, 2016   1299   0   4   0   0   0
Capital is the life blood of a business. Without it – bills pile up, nothing moves and key people search out greener pastures. As an entrepreneur it’s your job to keep money in the bank. Running “lean and mean” and building with you have can take you far but there will come a time when (hopefully) you need to fund exponential growth. Accessing capital is a skill and it surprises me how few entrepreneurs understand this and do it well. We see this first hand as we meet with a wide variety of business owners. Some seek funding far too early and others pay little attention to ongoing capital requirements until (sometimes) it’s far too late. At times, an entrepreneur comes to the table with a fantastic package for a funding group to review. When a business owner comes fully prepared seeking capital can find an audience quite quickly. These packages...

3 Lessons Entrepreneurs Eventually Learn
Marcin DrozdzMarcin Drozdz   February 11, 2016   1207   0   2   0   0   0
I still remember putting together one of my first “business plans”. A friend and I were going to start a security guard company. We planned on hiring our friends and taking over the security services for some local bars and restaurants (that turned to bars at night). The plan was nearly one page long… we also double spaced to make it seem more official. The business seemed straightforward …We would secure contracts at $15 an hour and pay our staff $10. We were going to be rich. It didn’t matter that we were barely old enough to grow facial hair or get a drink ourselves… The very thought of that company makes me smile to this day. Many years later and several businesses (great and not so great) under my belt I continue to reflect on some of the core lessons learnt that I believe nearly all company founders eventually come...
