Samuel Blankson's Guide To Real Estate Investing

Apr 14, 2008
Is Real Estate investing right for you:

The answer to that question depends on what you want out of life. If you are happy with your 9 - 5 job, have all the goodies you need to satisfy yourself and overall enjoy life, then real estate investing may not be for you. However, if you find yourself waking up in the morning with regret, wishing you didn't have to go to work at a job you hate and don't mind a little bit of a challenge, I recommend jumping on the real estate band wagon and changing your future for the better.

Its not a big secret, nor is it a myth, that everyday people like you are making a fortune in the real estate market, but its not being handed to them, rest assured that each and every one of them work very hard to get and keep what they have. I haven't even mentioned the numerous pitfalls to be found in real estate investments such as a rapid decline in the housing market and constantly increasing upkeep costs to name a couple.

Now don't get discouraged yet, you have already made it this far, the first step in the right direction was looking for information, which is what brought you here. To again rebuild your hope, I will tell you that for the most part, real estate is a very sound investment, and often enough becomes very lucrative for all parties involved. The biggest hurdle is your knowledge, or lack of, in the real estate industry. You have to look at your investments as a business, a business in which you will do your best to learn as much as possible in order to quickly rise to the top.

Although it can be overwhelming, there are a lot of factors, laws and regulations that will determine whether or not your investments are profitable and remain that way. Some things you may consider before spending your money are home repair costs, current market condition and stability, upkeep of the property and fees associated with the purchase, which vary heavily depending on the location of the property.

While it may be a bit extreme, you might consider going to school for your real estate license. I bring this up for a couple of reasons, one, you can cut out the extremely high broker fees associated with buying properties, and two, it will give you the opportunity to dive into the world of real estate and learn most of the ins and outs to handling properties. Just like any investment, there are the good and the bad of each cent you invest, but the more you know and the smarter you play the game will ultimately determine your fate in the real estate business.

How can you learn more about investing in real estate:

There is, by no means, a lack of information out there about investing in real estate, the problem is finding the good stuff. A search of the web will bring up a lot of promising articles, but once you get into them, they are missing the key components that will make your investments successful. Many of the books published by self proclaimed experts, tend to leave you hanging in suspense, that is of course until you read a book by Samuel Blankson.

With over 30 titles in the series of Samuel Blankson books, all covering a variety of topics, it is still amazing how well he covers any given subject. One of my personal favorites, The Guide to Real Estate Investing, is one of the most incredibly, in-depth real estate investment books on the market.

Within the pages you will find up to date, relevant information on REIT's, Indexes and REIT Options that will give you a whole new outlook on how you approach the real estate market. You will also be given the opportunity to learn all of hottest tricks to turn a profit through the most popular and conventional methods in the business.

If you have any interest at all in making money in the real estate market, this is one book that you can't afford to pass up on. It covers over 20 different methods of investing in real estate, with some of the greatest tips and tricks used by major players in the real estate market. The book is extremely easy to understand and provides not only expert, but practical information that anyone can begin implementing in their new business today.
