The Cities Where Rent Is Rising Fastest

Your landlord will probably never lower your rent—but at least you can take solace that rents aren't rising as quickly as they used to.  Rents for single-family homes are likely to rise by 1.7 percent in the year ending August 2017, according to new data from Zillow. That continues the trend of slower rent growth during the current calendar year, and it marks a big shift from 2015, when rents in San Francisco, among other cities, jumped by more than 10 percent. – From Bloomberg

Why Now is The Perfect Time to Invest in Real Estate

If you have been on the fence about getting into real estate investing, now may be the best time to take that first dive into this business. Real estate has seen its highs and

If you’ve recently started out in the real estate business, own a few rental units, and think you’re saving money by not hiring a property manager and doing everything yourself, think again. Half of the appeal of investing in the real estate market is the passive income it yields. Maximum financial reward for minimum effort. Everyone has the time to be a landlord for one property, even two. But once you have a handful under your belt, the workload can become a bit overwhelming.

Owning real estate shouldn’t be a job; it should allow you to live life on your terms, give you the freedom to enjoy life when and wherever you wish. But you can’t do that if you’re spending all your time managing your properties. Whether you have just four or five properties or

But what are you looking for when you shop for your dream investment property? Maybe you know, maybe you kinda sorta know, or maybe you are clueless. Either way, I have you covered.

Here is a checklist guide of things you need to make sure you have checked out before you sign on the dotted line.

But first, to clarify, different investors have different criteria when they are shopping for a rental property. In any one of these checklist items, you may be looking for something different from what I mention or suggest. That’s OK. The way this list works is not to tell you specifically what

How can real estate investors build more trust?

The biggest obstacle to doing more deals and reaching personal goals in this business is building and maintaining trust. Unfortunately, there is a lot of natural distrust out there. And perhaps there ought to be. Sometimes it can be challenging to find great real estate agents, investors, attorneys, and contractors.

The problem is that people would rather risk the penalties of not taking action than taking action and looking foolish. If you want to sign contracts with more motivated sellers, enter into more leases with qualified tenants, deal with cash buyers, and even attract the best investors and vendors, then you’ve got to build trust. Once you build trust and establish a good

first-down-payment

After over 30 years in real estate investing, I have to admit that getting that first property was absolutely the toughest.

Of course, it wasn’t just about being able to make the monthly payments. After all, while I had been saving up to buy my first property, I was still able to pay my rent. The toughest part, by far, was coming up with the actual down payment.

As many folks do nowadays, I graduated with student loan debt. I was also married with a child. And so, we moved in with family to save money while I studied to become an agent, as I wanted to actually get paid whenever I bought a property.

After two years of saving, we moved into an apartment. It was an affordable place, not the most I could afford, but it was the safest place to

Selling your home can be especially challenging when your home is also your office. Make the process a breeze with these hacks.

The number of teleworkers (who are not self-employed) has grown enormously over the past several years. And it’s no wonder: Technology has made it even easier to work from just about anywhere, anytime (even in your pajamas if you want to). One added perk? That smug feeling of satisfaction you have when other people complain about traffic in Los Angeles, CA, or their commute times on the beltway into Washington, DC.

But working from home comes with its own set of challenges, and potentially a more formidable experience when selling your home. Working from a for-sale house means constant interruptions from real estate

The key to success in an agent/client relationship? Take the time to research and interview some real estate agents before choosing the one who’s right for you.

Consider the real estate process: there’s time spent researching neighborhoods, searching for homes that match your budget (and your lifestyle), negotiations on price and repairs, the commitment level of making one of the biggest purchases of your life. Does going it alone sound scarier than entering a haunted house at midnight?

Fear not: homebuying doesn’t have to be. A great real estate agent can help you navigate every step, with advice and connections to make getting to the closing table that much easier. And especially in hot real estate markets like Boston, MA, and San Francisco,
