Get Rich Quick with Lafayette Real Estate

by admin

You see them on TV, standing next to a plane or a Ferrari, sharing tips about how they got rich buying real estate. It's simple to become a millionaire, and of course you don't need any money to put down, and credit is never an issue. These tips will work in any market, even right here in Lafayette. Hey, it worked for them, so why not you? 

Getting rich overnight in real estate doesn't happen that often. For every story of overnight wealth, there are thousands of stories of fortunes lost by less than experienced investors. Unfortunately, many of the stories of loss come from the same people who struck it rich just months before! The bottom line is that we help both new and experienced investors put their money to good use every day, and some of those investors are quite wealthy, but building wealth in real estate is the same as in any other industry--it is a process. 

You can contact us anytime for advice on investing in real estate in our area. The Lafayette, West Lafayette and Purdue markets offer some fantastic opportunities when you're ready!

How to Get Started Investing in Lafayette Real Estate

by admin
As a prospective real estate investor, you can choose from two main approaches. One, holding a property until it increases in value, likely renting in in the meantime,  or two, the very different approach of "flipping" - reselling very soon after making some improvements that add value. If you plan on holding, keep these factors in mind when searching for the right investment property.

Consider looking for a house or apartment unit that is close to where you live, so inspecting the property will be simple. Choose a property where there is clear potential for future development, and you will benefit in the long run. For example, investment property goes up in value corresponding to its there space to add storage facilities? Is there room to add washer and dryer units? Is the potential property currently a two unit, but you see a simple way to make a third or fourth unit? These types of improvments increase income, and in turn will raise the value of your investment property. If you have the choice of either buying a newly built or recently remodeled home or a less expensive house in the same neighborhood that needs a cosmetic makeover, buy the bargain property and upgrade it for a better long-term return on your investment.
