We all know that real estate is cyclical. The question is will you be in a position to benefit when it surges the next time around?
The best thing about a bad housing market is that prices are at the very bottom of a cycle and that means the overall upside potential is never greater than at that very point. Being able to access finance will be key to your success.
Real estate investors will often pay lots of attention to the price of a property and yet pay much less attention to the structure of their financing options. Easy access to funds is one aspect of this while the conditions of the loan are also critical.
The old adage that you make your profit when you buy is especially true in a depressed marketplace.
The sort of long term projects you may need in the new real estate investing paradigm may be largely without parallel, in the experiences of many investors.
Because most investors have never seen real estate and shares and finance all in a tail spin at the one time, it’s easy for mistakes to be made. Stick to the sound fundamentals of investing to guide you through these murky waters.
Of course it’s in the nature of the most uncertain times to produce the greatest opportunities for profit. Because of this fact you can’t let fear keep you out of the profit zone.
It’s not like investing in a bad market requires different fundamentals to investing in a good one. Fundamentals remain fundamentals, that’s how they got their name. What does have to change however, may be your attitude and your general game plan.
Do your best to stick around while everyone else is bailing out of real estate and that contrarian attitude will reap rewards for you later on.
Arming yourself with some additional skills and tactics may help you in riding out the real estate storm so roll your sleeves up and examine what ways you can educate yourself to deal with the new marketplace.
You just need to study the new investing architecture and fill the needs that it creates in people that are affected by it. You may be able to help to ease the pain of someone buy purchasing their house outright, buying shares in it, buying a time conditional settlement etc.
