Tap into Your Inner Architect for fun and Profit: Introducing “Fixing and Flipping Real Estate: Strategies for the Post-Boom Era” — Just Released by Apress Media


New York, NY (PRWEB) January 16, 2013

Real estate investments that involve hanging onto properties for extended periods of time are a turn-off for many entrepreneurs. But buying a run-down piece of property, fixing it up and flipping it quickly is a totally different story.

“Fixing and Flipping Real Estate: Strategies for the Post-Boom Era” by Marty Boardman provides both experienced and newbie fix-and-flip real estate investors, working either full- or part-time, with the tools they need to strategize and complete this type of real-estate investment. The book underscores that fixing and flipping houses is a business with a solid formula. Following these steps can help serious investors sell as many as 20 properties a month and pocket as much as six figures worth of profit a year. And, with the housing market projected to bottom out at last, the time is ripe to showcase attractive real estate.

The book addresses how to find and buy suitable properties in targeted neighborhoods at a targeted price point. How to calculate rehab expenses and not under- or over-improve the properties. How to sell them with the greatest flip value in the shortest amount of time. And how to secure funding. Also included are instructions on how to buy bank-owned houses and also foreclosures at auction, and how to navigate short sales from underwater homeowners.

Apress author Chris Lauer gives advice to home owners in financial crisis in his new book, “Underwater: Options When Your Mortgage Is Upside Down.”


New York, NY (PRWEB) December 20, 2012

A whopping 28.6 percent of homeowners with mortgages owe more on their loans than their homes could sell for, according to quarterly data recently released by Zillow, a real estate website. Over the years, since the housing bubble burst, there have been a number predictions and initiatives made by real estate pundits and politicians but none that have really helped to sort out the crisis for such homeowners.

“UNDERWATER: Options When Your Mortgage Is Upside Down” by Chris Lauer, a veteran financial journalist finally outlines the different options available to home owners in distress: when foreclosure is a good idea, how to best protect the equity you’ve built up, what the financial repercussions of going into foreclosure are, how other homeowners have been able to turn their mortgages around and rise up from dire circumstances, and how to take advantage of government programs designed to keep you happily housed.

At the same time, this optimism can be difficult to see from underwater. Those who suffer from negative equity need help from people who have worked inside the real estate market long enough to understand its ebb and flow. This book is filled with the advice of experts who know about underwater mortgages from the inside out.

The stories, tips, and advice in this book come from those who have seen enough real estate transactions to know the score. They were there on the front lines when the real estate bubble burst five years ago and they returned with experiences and knowledge that can be vital to underwater homeowners seeking relief from in tough times.

Chris Lauer takes a straight forward approach to the facts, ideas, and advice that can help any underwater homeownerespecially those facing foreclosuremake smart decisions for a better future.
