This process is called flipping a property and can be one of the true secrets of creating wealth for yourself. Many realtors will tell you that this is the most carefully guarded secret in real estate. However, it is practiced by even the most experienced real estate professionals and is one of the fastest and easiest ways to generate personal wealth.
The first step is to understand a basic principle: Property is oftentimes, for many different reasons, priced much lower than the current market value of the property. This means that the property can be purchased a relatively low sum and then sold, in very short time, for a usually much higher market price. Selling property in this manner usually promises high profit margins and very low risk as you only own the property for a few days or even a few hours. Following this basic rule will allow you to flip and grow rich very quickly.
The next step is knowing where and how to find properties that are priced to sell. From houses that have been foreclosed on by banks or other financial institutions to properties that have been defaulted on to estates that are available in auctions. Do not limit yourself by only considering residential real estate. Many times there are just as many commercial opportunities available. Think of the typical dilapidated down town districts in so many of smaller cities and towns. In this instance a business become unprofitable. The owner then defaulted on the payments and the bank then foreclosed on the property. Commercial properties can also be condemned for structural issues or held by a financial institution for back taxes. In all these cases the owner or financial institution is an extremely motivated seller that will only lower the asking price for the property. With so many reasons for a property to have a depressed price tag, there are literally hundreds of opportunities in any given market that can be easily flipped.
Guaranteeing capital to purchase a property is the next step in this process. Some people may think that it initially might require too much upfront capital. However, the owners of the above described properties are either property owners desperate to sell or financial institutions looking to recoup a potential financial loss. Thus, they will make almost any concession in order to move the property. Any loans that you may need to pursue in order to guarantee the purchase of a property can be quickly paid off after you sell the asset. And because the property is quickly flipped, there is very little financial risk involved.
Lastly, it is important to secure a steady stream of buyers. After all, what good is buying the real estate if you do not have someone to buy it? Fortunately there is no shortage of buyers. From first time home owners to agent who is always looking for that great deal, a virtual line of customers should not be hard to create. Follow this step by step guide and you too can flip and grow rich.
