I have been thinking about our local and national real estate markets and the opportunities that are out there right now. I know many people that are getting rich because of the various real estate deals that they are doing to make things work for them.
What are you doing to make use of the opportunity near you? I am working on short sales and on buying rental property at this time. Vegas, Kansas City, and Salt Lake are the three markets I am buying and helping people invest in.
Let me know where you are and what you are doing!

If you act fast you could get as much as 20000 dollars towards the purchase of a new home when combined with the 8000 tax credit!
Good Luck and Happy Real Estate Hunting!

The good news is that there are plenty of opportunities to be had in America, even in these troubled times. There has not been a better era for someone to grow their own business, whether it be in real estate or any field at all. Their are plenty of opportunities out there for someone to grab hold and get out of the sticky situation they may be in at this time. I hope that all of you have a great Labor day weekend and look forward to helping you in your endeavors any way that I can!

I saw a client at the store and was able to reestablish contact with that person. I had helped him sell his home with the option of leasing it back for two years and buying it at a later date. It has worked out for him pretty well as it has allowed his family to get back on their feet. He has additional questions, that although some people would not want to do, I am more than happy to answer as I can. It was a great feeling to see someone I had helped several years later and see their life had improved.
If you can become a problem solver, offer housing, rehab houses, or explore other fields of interest, you will have a more fulfilling life in whatever you do!

Real Estate success offers an identical conundrum to that of the definition of success, it seems there are several definitions and they are all individually based. We need to put a handle on time frames and goals as we feel are viable to be accomplished during specifically identified time frames.
I am currently working a two projects here in Utah to help distressed homeowners and sellers come together. My goal is to help people who are confused and have questions about the foreclosure process, helping them identify the many options they have. My goal, then, is to make sure they are not taken advantage of and are given correct information on the best possible alternatives.
If you know anyone who is facing a foreclosure, have them contact me. If you are interested in investing in foreclosed properties for investment or your own home, let me know as well.
Remember, goal setting is an important aspect of life, one that will never end if done correctly.

You may be asking how this has anything to do with real estate? Well first off I was able to advertise my business a bit with a banner on the back. Secondly, many of the houses I am buying were built in the same year as this car and cost less than the car is worth now! So for all of you wondering how to get out of that job you hate or wanting to make that extra money for the much needed vacation, what are you waiting for?

As always, if anyone is interested in a real estate coach or buying property in Utah for equity or Kansas City for Cashflow, give me a call!

As you can tell I am not a fan of the media, but I believe that the lack of them reporting on the economy is helping things, so I will say Thanks to those journalists now chasing influenza across the globe!

I am still finding an abnormal amount of people who are claiming to be waiting for the bottom before they get into investing. To me this is turning into more of an excuse than it is a valid concern. I understand the importance of not overpaying for an investment, but I also know that the flip side is equally as damaging. That side would be waiting to long while opportunities are prime for the picking.
Today I put offers in on four properties. Two will likely sell for more, one is under contract, and the fourth is trying to hold out for more. I am saying this only because it proves that there are plenty of people taking advantage of these opportunities and I would hate to have you miss out. If you are on the fence about investing, now is the time to get off and make some offers. It is true that prices could come down more in some areas, but it is equally as likely that they will go up.
I would be happy to answer any questions that you may have regarding real estate investment and getting started.
Happy hunting and I hope you find the deals that will make you wealthy in this opportune time!

For those of you who haven't heard or wonder what it is, Utah recently passed legislation issuing a home run down payment of $6000 to anyone who purchases a home that is brand new, never been lived in. This assistance is to help move some of the home inventory that is currently sitting on the market. There are a limited number of these grants available, so time is of the essence. You can visit my site: www.ReturnRealEstate.com or call me at 801-232-9500 and I would be happy to provide you with a list of properties that would currently qualify for this grant. You may also want to visit www.UtahHousingCorp.org to see how many of these grants are still out there. It originally started at 1670 and last I checked it was already below 1540 so hurry and call me today. This can also be combined with the 8000 first time home buyer credit to give you a total of $14000 from Uncle Sam when purchasing a home! You can also ask me about grants and other incentives that could easily take this total above 20k.
Let's take advantage of these options before it's too late!

The current real estate market is a conundrum for some, but for those who study history it is nothing new. Although we have seen some record declines in recent years, we have also seen record appreciation just prior to those declines? So what does that mean to the savvy investors like Robert Kiyosaki, Carleton Sheets, and that Trump guy? They likely foresaw a turn of this nature based on the historical records found on websites like ofheo.gov. Here is a graph of the historical home values in the
As you can see there have been several up and downs in the history of our country. Funny enough they seem to correspond in many ways to major wars and trying times in our economy. It is also interesting to note that it didn’t take long into the great depression to see home values rise considerably. World War 2 all but decimated the gains found throughout the latter half of the Great Depression.
If history paints a picture of the world of real estate, what can we expect from here? This is an honest question that has everyone up in arms, making predictions, and totally confused. If they were to only study history they would see that we are close to the bottom, but have a few years to go before we will see any gains. It could even be decades before we see double digit gains in appreciation. To me this means that we need to be even more conscience of the return on investment we receive through cash on cash returns. The major reason I am buying property in Tooele County Utah and

I have the pleasure of working with several people that see this economy as a blessing in disguise as well. These are the people that see the silver lining in the sky and are trying to make the most of the opportunity. If you find yourself surrounded by the "Eeyore's" of the world, it's time to get a new set of friends! Don't spend your time thinking of what could have been, spend energy working towards producing results.

We are in a period of uncontrolled spending that seems to have no end. The current government seems to think that the way to get out of our current hole is to keep digging. Let me ask a question, when has this ever made sense. When you want to get out of a hole, you don't continue digging, you stop!
What we need is good, old fashioned, hard work at this juncture in our history. As was once said by a very great leader, "The only thing we need to fear is fear itself," which is absolutely true, but we are riding fear headlong into our current recession. We have several situations arising due to the fear of our nation's members, some are good for the state of things, ie better savings habits, and some are terrible, ie pulling investments out of solid markets thinking it will be better elsewhere.
I have recently had the opportunity to give a speech to our state Apartment Association. During the speech I was surprised at how few questions there were regarding how people could take advantage of the current market conditions regarding real estate. I admit that I was a bit disappointed in my own performance, not for the information provided, but from the presentation of that information. This was not as disappointing, however, as the lack of excitement in the opportunities of our current market. Baron Rothchild once said, "Buy when there is blood in the streets, even if the blood is your own." He was basically saying that you should be looking at opportunities, especially when most of the populous is running from those opportunities. Although I am glad that some people are overlooking the opportunities, I am amazed at how few there are taking advantage of them.
What do you need to know to get educated on historical real estate markets? I spent eight hours researching this current situation and have a presentation that I would be happy to share with anyone who requests it via email.
Hope you are able to take advantage of market conditions by buying a home, investing in real estate, or even expanding your knowledge at minimum!

My thought is this, why not use this opportunity to get ahead. People have free time, start a business! Need extra income, start doing something about it. I found a way to make forty dollars yesterday without having any money. Just by working through a simple formula of paint cans and a stencil, I could have easily made much more than that, but wanted an example of a simple thing someone could do to make money with literally no overhead. You find a person who wants numbers painted on the curb, get them to pay ahead, go buy the supplies, and follow up with neighbors who may be willing to pay 15 to 20 bucks to have it done. This is just one of thousands of business ideas that are potentially out there to those industrious enough to move forward.
Real Estate is the same. I hear people tell me all the time, I would love to invest if I had the money. That seems to be the most common excuse anyone has these days. I met with someone today who doesn't have any money, but we discussed three different things he could do to start investing today!
You don't need money, there is money to be found, what you need are goals and desires to exit the hole you are in and move forward! Let's quit listening to the media and go make a difference.
