At any one point in time there is more than $600B in Residential Real Estate properties on the market across the US. Executors of Estates frequently need money, so bargains are not hard to find.
Probate Offers Opportunities that Lead to 2016 Profits
   

As the end of the year arrives, you might be thinking about ways that you can exp& your real estate investing business or wondering if there are ways you can take it to the next level. Probates might just be the answer.

More & more real estate entrepreneurs are discovering that probates offer discounted prices as well as sellers that are extremely motivated. Executors want to make deals with investors who can offer them a quick closing & cash to take their properties.

What that means for you is that you will have a chance to find properties that are priced below market values in great neighborhoods.

Due to the fact that Executors want to sell their properties – in fact, many times they need to sell the homes, businesses & personal property that they are managing – you can find lower prices than on the general market. This means that the chances of you being able to make a profit, & a good one, skyrocket when you take a close look at probates.

PROBATE WATCH
Have you ever wondered why probates offer such great pricing? There are several reasons that will help you to underst& the overall structure of the probate market. First, probates are usually discounted since they are offered in as-is condition. This means that improvements might need to be made in order to sell them. Executors underst& that because a home isn’t in the condition to be sold right away that they cannot get full market value for it. Executors also want to get property sold so that they can get funeral expenses, medical bills, credit cards & taxes paid. This is part of the responsibility of the Executor & in order to get the cash they need, they know they have to be flexible on the pricing.

You probably have heard the old business adage, “Timing is everything!” This is very true of the probate industry. If you are looking for opportunities to invest, then being in the right place at the right time for Executors is critical to the growth & development of your business.

What are some ways that you can ensure that you are having

 

REVIEWING 2015 GOALS. . .

Did you have a set of goals for 2015? How did you do? If your answer is, “I don’t know,” then it is time to get your goal sheet out & take a look at it.

Reviewing your yearly goals before you set up the next set is one of the most important processes you can use to ensure success. Look carefully at your goals & determine if you completed the goal, were unable to achieve it, forgot about it or if it no longer applies. Each of these answers will give you great insight as to where your business needs to go in the next year. Good luck!

the best chance at scoring a great deal? The very best strategy is to always have communications going out to your Executors. Hit or miss communications are what will cause you to lose opportunities. Making sure that you are sending a mailing, an email blast (if you have access to that information) or making phone calls to each Executor monthly can propel your business forward.

Getting out into the community is another way that you can increase your odds of finding someone who is ready to make a

 

deal. By booking speaking engagements at the local Rotary or Chamber of Commerce, you will increase your visibility within your community & get your name out. Some of the very people you speak to may need your services or may know someone who can benefit from your expertise.

The reality is that if you want to be in the right place at the right time, it takes persistence & continuity in your marketing & contacts. Take the time today to schedule calls & mailings that will grow your business.

Probate Leads represent the last major market untapped real estate market segment in the US today! Now is your opportunity to step into this market.

INVESTING:

Caring Communication

If you work in probate, then each one of your clients has suffered a loss.  Never let that be far from your mind & treat each individual, whether the Executor, a family member or friend of the family with respect & compassion.  Being professional & yet compassionate will lead to more opportunities in the future.

Commit to Growing Your
Business

Have you decided that you want to grow your probate real estate investment business during 2016? If that is the case, then one of the most important things you can do is learn how to commit.

Any venture – whether improving your health, resolving issues with finances, bettering relationships or growing a business – requires a commitment. The process of committing is one that has to take place literally every single day (& sometimes more than once a day!) in order to get you the forward progress that you want. You probably have seen it in other investors or in other

areas of your life. You decide you want to make a change – think about all the people who commit to losing weight each year – & yet while you start out strong, you quickly falter.

is in their level of commitment. Can they keep their eye on the ball? Are they willing to be uncomfortable? Are they willing to put in the effort needed to succeed? These are all questions that test character & mettle, especially when you are an entrepreneur.

If you do want to grow your business during 2016, then the first thing you need to do is to commit. Commit to the process & how much energy it will take. Commit & see great results!

Divorce & Bankruptcy Leads
Great Option During 2016

Are you looking for a new way to exp& your business during 2016? Do you want access to more leads that will give you more opportunities to find just the right properties for your portfolio?

Divorce & bankruptcy leads may be exactly what you need during 2016. When individuals go through a divorce or a bankruptcy, they may be ordered by the court to sell assets in order to finalize the paperwork or clear their debts. Real estate investors can benefit as these properties may be sold for less than market value in a short timeline, giving you a quick closing.

When you are interested in a divorce or bankruptcy property, there are a few things to know. First, the court system is generally pretty specific about the sale. Look in the agreement for language that is not common to traditional agreements. It is always a good idea to have your attorney review the agreement, especially the first time, to ensure that you underst& the terms & how they affect you.

Since these properties are sold for less than market value, you can find great deals. Take the time to have an inspection done so that you are aware of any issues in the property &

make a budget that will allow you to get the home ready for a resale. Planning carefully will help you to profit.

It is important that you have a way out of the deal as well. In divorce cases, you don’t want to get stuck between the two parties if one fails to sign the paperwork in a reasonable amount of time. An escape clause inserted into the agreement can save you a lot of time & headaches.

Take a hard look at divorce & bankruptcy leads during 2016 to create new levels of profit for your investment business.

ADD A NEW INCOME STREAM TO YOUR PROBATE BUSINESS

Buying & selling real estate can be a great way to ensure that you have a solid stream of income. But, did you know that you can add a complimentary line of income to your business & give yourself even more freedom?

From home cleaning out services to estate sales to apartment rehabs, you can find ways to augment your current level of investment income.

One of the best ways to determine what to do is to figure out what would help your Executors or make their lives easier. You can also chat with other real estate investors & find out what frustrates them about their business & offer your expertise. From bookkeeping to property management, there are an unlimited menu of choices for you to exp& your business. Get creative & get to work on a new income stream for your business today!

Creating Meaningful Goals for 2016

It is just about that time of the year, the time when everything & everyone slows down for a few weeks to mark the holidays & the end of the year. While work may seem to be slow, it is the best time for you to consider your goals for 2016 & what you would like to accomplish.

Creating meaningful goals is a process that can take some time & some thoughtful consideration. Even though it requires effort knowing where you are going can be invaluable later on in the year when you aren’t sure if you are creating the progress that you would like to have.

start the process.

The next step is to define how you want to feel as for most of us success is much more than a financial matter. Feeling free, in control, decisive, independent – these are all emotions that can be linked to success. Knowing which ones you are going for will help you to define your goals.

Take some time & grab paper, your 2015 goals & head to a local quiet place, whether your library, coffee shop or a park. Make a list of the things you would like to achieve & how you would like to feel twelve months in the future. Writing this down by h& is a powerful exercise & can help you to really connect with your goals.

The next step is to back up. Take your list of goals & work backwards from those goals to determine what needs to be done each & every month. If you want to feel independent & need to make $100,000 during 2016 to do that, how are you going to get that accomplished? Break down the income level by month & then add the activities that will generate that income to your monthly goals.

Don’t let this be the end of your goal setting for 2016. Take the time to review your goals each month & see where you are. Evaluating them each month will help you to see your success & move forward accordingly.

Probate is more than just real estate!
