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.

Real Estate Leads are Plentiful in Probate Industry

If you are a real estate investor, one of the most difficult jobs can be to find properties – whether commercial or residential – that you are willing to consider for investment.  Having a reliable source of leads can be the driver behind your real estate success.

Where can you find a consistent source of leads that you can depend on?  Probates.  Probates are filed in every county of the United States and can give you access to the best information on discounted properties that Executors are eager to sell.  Having a

stream of these leads can make all the difference in your business, allowing you to create a plan to look at properties regularly. 

While other investors may be struggling to find properties that will work for their portfolios, you don’t have to have that experience.  Look to the industry leader in lead generation, US Probate Leads, to help you find viable, timely leads that will propel your business to the next level.

PROBATE WATCH

How long are probate leads viable?  When that question is posed to industry experts, the resounding answer is that they are timely and viable up to eighteen months after the filing.  The reason that probate leads last so long, much longer than comparable real estate leads, is that many times families simply aren’t ready to sell homes, vehicles, commercial property, businesses and vacation homes immediately after the loss of their loved one.  Homes may have to be cleaned out and families may need time to grieve before they are ready to sell property.  That benefits probate real estate investors as they have time to put together a comprehensive campaign and contact Executors several times over the long term.

Collecting cars is a popular hobby that many people enjoy during the weekends.  Did you know that you can turn your passion for cars into a profitable probate business?

From the newest model luxury cars to vintage “barn finds,” there are plenty of options that will help you to build your probate car business.  The reason that buying and selling vehicles

 

DEALS THAT YOU SHOULD WALK AWAY FROM!

Are there deals that you just shouldn’t accept?  That is a question we get all the time.  The answer is yes.  If there is a fix needed on a property that can’t be adequately estimated – such as a foundation issue or an environmental issue – it may be in your best interest to walk away.  This way you don’t have the risk of thousands of dollars in repairs that can take you from being in the black to being in the red.

works in probate is the same reason that buying and selling homes does – Executors need to sell personal property in order to have the money to settle medical bills, funeral expenses and provide an inheritance to the family members.  This means that, just like real estate, vehicles may be available for a discounted price. 

If you currently have a probate business, then you can easily expand into vehicle sales.  Simply inquire of the Executor if they have any vehicles or other personal property for sale when you are looking at the
 

house.  You will likely find that there is a car available that can be purchased for a discounted price.

What kind of cars should you look for?  That depends on your interests and connections.  If you know families who have new drivers, then late model cars would be a good fit.  If you know people who prefer vintage cars, then focus on that.  Either way, these vehicles can be advertised over the Internet easily and can help you to develop a profitable stream of income for your probate business.

Dealing with the Real Estate Lead Shortage

It has been all over the news – there is a significant real estate lead shortage in the market today with no end in sight.  What this means to you is that when you are ready to purchase a home or commercial property for your portfolio, there may not be one available that meets your needs or budget.

After the recession a few years back, the banks significantly tightened their lending standards to the point where it is difficult for individuals to get a loan unless they have amazing credit.  This has had a ripple effect in the housing market.  People who would like to move to a larger home

or downsize to a smaller home may have difficulty doing so because of the strict lending standards.  This has decreased the stockpile of homes that are on the market.  As you know, the laws of supply and demand indicate when the supply drops and demand increases, so do prices.

This can be bad news for a real estate investor, unless you know where to look.  Though there are difficulties in the traditional market, there is plenty of opportunity in the probate market.  Investors who have a lead service are at a particular advantage as they know almost immediately when a home or other property becomes

available.

Moving into probate is perhaps one of the best ways to deal with the real estate lead shortage.  Instead of working in an area where there are few leads investors who move into the probate arena see that there are many, many investment options that can propel their business to the next level.

What is the lesson?  Traditional markets are simply not the best place to find good investments today.  Look to a professional lead service to provide probate leads where you can find discounted properties today.

LEARN FROM THE EXPERTS AT US PROBATE LEADS WITH MENTORING

There is the old adage, “work smarter, not harder.”  If you want to work smarter with your probate business, then look to the experts at US Probate Leads to help you expand your business and take it to the next level.

One of the best ways for us to help you is through our personalized mentoring program.  With this initiative, we work individually with business owners to help them understand where their business is today, create a vision and goals for the future and understand how to find and purchase probate property in their own area.  Our team is filled with experts at business development and probate real estate as well as other streams of income associated with probates, including estate sales, antiques and personal property.

Benefits of Buying Commercial Property

If you have been in the probate real estate industry for a while then you know there are times that commercial property comes available.  Should you take advantage of these opportunities?  Are their risks associated with commercial property?  These are just a few of the questions you should be asking before you decide to pursue this avenue.

To be sure, commercial property can be profitable.  With higher levels of rent, tenants that generally prefer not to move and fewer internal items to break at each property, commercial and business space can be a great way to profit. 

Unlike residential property, there is less wear and tear on the décor of the property as the tenant usually takes care of not only furnishing it, but providing floor and wall coverings that show off their business.  Roofs

are generally more simple in design than on a home and can be maintained easier.  A business being in one location for a long period of time means that as a landlord you will have fewer turnovers at your site.

In addition to enjoying higher rents and less upkeep, the properties are generally worth more than a single home.  There are commercial properties that can be worth millions of dollars to the right buyer if you choose to buy and sell rather than rent them out.  Or, if the area that the building is in becomes desirable for development, you may have a real estate company come in and purchase your lot and building at a premium. 

One of the major

differences in working in commercial real estate is the terms used on the sale and lease.  Rent schedules can be bit different as well, which means that it is always a good idea to have your attorney review all of the terms before you sign so that you can make sure you will be able to profit over the long term.

While there is bigger risk in owning commercial property, there is also greater reward for people who decide to go that direction.  Before you get started do your research, but know that commercial real estate – especially that gained from probate situations – can create profits that can grow your business to a significant and extraordinary level.

A Note from the Editor

Together, we can find those probate-related properties
that will allow you to be a success in the probate area.

Today’s savvy probate real estate investors know that there are many ways to profit.  These can include everything from purchasing residential real estate to buying and selling cars to pursuing divorce leads and buying commercial property.  Diversification is the hallmark of a successful business.

One process that all of these areas of the industry have in common is the need for leads.  Without good leads, you will never know what is available on the market and may actually end up paying more than you should

for properties.  Smart investors have discovered that probate, divorce and bankruptcy leads are ones that can take the path of profitability.  In each of these cases, the people selling the items need to get rid of items, which means they may be more flexible in terms of how much they would like for their property.

Are you ready to profit?  If you are, then let the experts at US Probate Leads assist you in finding opportunities in your area where probate, divorce and

bankruptcy cases can create profits.  We offer customized lead services as well as mentoring, seminars, webinars, ebooks and training to help you achieve your business dreams.
