New Video Just Released on How to Determine Property Value

Campbell, NY (PRWEB) June 06, 2013

The ultimate goal of any investor is to cash a paycheck. In order to cash a paycheck, investors must be able to learn how to determine property value. This is a critical piece all investors must be familiar with and know how to do or else it will eat up profits very quickly and waste a lot of time because the numbers don’t pencil.

Cameron explains in the video that the goal is to determine what the property is worth if it was in great condition. He calls this ARV. The After Repaired Value. So when investors find a property that needs a lot of work, they need to be able to determine the value of this home if it was in repaired condition.

Cameron shares several ways on how this is done in the video. First, investors can get an agent to do a CMA or also known as a Comparative Market Analysis. This is where a real estate agent will pull a list of comparable properties that are similar to the subject property in order to determine property value or at least find out what these “comparable” properties sold for.

In order to determine property value, Cameron says, “the best way is to not only look at properties that have sold in the past 3-6 months but also look at the active listings as well.” It would be important information to know if a similar home is actively listed but has been on the market for 6 months. All this information helps the investor determine the property value.

He also talks about the MLS as a great tool for determining property value. It provides information to agents and appraisers so they can determine home values fairly accurately. They are able to see active listings as well as properties that have sold.

Title companies also provide “property profiles” where they can pull comps and tax roll data because they too have access to this information. There are some online free web sites like Zillow that provide information on what the home is worth. Although this is a great tool, Cameron says, “it’s not always accurate. I’ll always make a quick call to an agent just to verify my numbers and get a second opinion.”

Danbury, Connecticut (PRWEB) January 22, 2013

Connecting a buyer with an available property is one of the challenges that realtors and agents face on a daily basis.

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.

Dates For Ottons Series of One Day Live Training Event On Bank-Free Property Investment Released

(PRWEB) January 03, 2013

Rick Otton is kick starting 2013 with live property investing training events all over Australia and has released the schedule for the series of these one-day events. The success of this events series in 2012 as well as the huge number of people who wanted to attend but, for some reason, has failed to do so has prompted Otton and his team to conduct another series this year.

Otton is a renowned property innovator, known in major countries including the US, UK, New Zealand and Australia for his creative and innovative out-of-the-box strategies in buying and selling houses. He has been teaching his creative strategies to other people since 2001 and has since then helped thousands of individuals turn their lives around.

The previous series of one day live training events has sold rather quickly in 2012. Because seating was limited, lots of individuals were not able to participate in the event and learn more about Ottons creative property investment strategies.

We were distraught that there were lots of people who didnt get to attend the training events last year. This is why my team and I decided to continue the series this year and go all out in ensuring everyone will learn a lot about property investment, feel comfortable, and have a great time, Rick Otton said.

Learning in One Day

Otton understands how difficult it is to get started on property investing, especially for those who have zero experience in dealing houses. This is among the many reasons why he has decided to teach people his creative and innovative real estate strategies via a series of one day events.

Ottons property investment strategies are basically designed to eliminate banks and money in the investment process, allowing anyone including those with insufficient funds for deposit as well as those who, for some reason, are unable to qualify for a loan. Through these strategies anyone could invest on property even without sufficient funds as well as the required skillset and levels of experience.

My strategies primarily focus in solving the problem of a buyer and a seller by creatively and innovatively modifying the terms of the sale. These strategies are easy to learn and implement provided you have an open mind and the willingness to forget the standard and accept changes, Rick Otton said.

One of the many students who have attended Ottons training events is J. Soulos. Rick has changed my life! I have been working the whole of my life with 10-15 hours a day to create a property portfolio. I did not see my children at all. When I retired I had nothing to do and came across your program. How while Im doing the program, I find that Im spending more time with my boys Im enjoying having that drink with them and going out with them. Im a different person altogether! Rick has actually changed my life, Soulos said.

The upcoming dates for Ottons one day live training events are as follows:

????February 10, 2013 in Sydney
????February 17, 2013 in Brisbane
????February 23, 2013 in Melbourne
????February 24, 2013 in Perth
