Buy and Sell Real Estateat the Right Time

There is much to consider the timing of the buying and selling of Real Estate. Is it the right time to buy? How do I know if this is the right time to sell?

Buy and Sell Real Estateat the Right Time

In all investments, timing is very important however unlike other investments such as bonds, mutual funds, stocks, and  to name a few - there are two specific characteristics  to real estate investing.

1. Most Real Estate transactions are a lenghty process.

2. There is a uniquenees to each piece of real estate.

In order to buy or sell property it takes a long time, and while the transaction is taking place, the market is constantly changing. This makes timing the purchase or sale of real estate tricky. When you are investing in real estate, you are trying to sell high and then jump back into the market by buying low. Timing the market in such a way
is a challenge.

You need to look for property that is a "fixer upper" to get a good deal. If you know an inexpensive worker orhave experience for home repair, you can increase the value of a home by over 10%-12%. Search for foreclosure auctions and Notice of Default alerts in the area newspapers and online. Fsbo's and REO's. Find a good deal on property by anticipating positive change in depressed areas. Up-and-coming neighborhoods, in areas where people have been leaving tend to have lower prices. Find areas where the government is involved in development efforts. Check with your local Planning Commission.

Some investors I know, say that if a "Starbucks" is coming into the area, it is a safe bet that the area is up and coming. Now of course there's much more to it than that, however it just may be a starting point. For myself, I would rather purchase before that. 
The key to putting to use any of these strategies is having access to funding or capital. This doesn't mean having an account with huge sums of money in it. Instead, you need to have access to money. By maintaining a high credit score, nurturing an efficient relationship with your lender for quick approval for financing, and having access to liquid assets, you'll be prepared to jump when the right deal comes along. Do not forget your family and friends. These people may have the cash or credit you need. How about your's or their Self Directed IRA's.

Even in a slow market, the chance to make a profit investing in real estate is still likely. To do this, however, you'll need to do your
homework, have a long-term outlook, and be able to walk away from any deal.
