Secrets To Win The Real Estate War

Oct 11, 2007
Buying or selling real estate can be a daunting task. People are always worried if they are getting a good deal or not. There is no sure-shot-way by which you can make sure you get a good deal, since every real estate transaction has to be analyzed. But there are a few guidelines that can be followed by all when making a real estate investment, to ensure a successful deal.

The first thing to do is determine the Fair Market Value (FMV) of the property. As an investor you can buy property at the FMV. But why would anyone want to buy property at the FMV when you can get it for a lower price? To find properties that are at a lower value you will need to conduct a thorough research of the market. You will be in a better position to find lower rates if you choose to work with someone who is already familiar with the locality or then you will have to make the effort yourself and use the internet to search the recent sale histories to determine the going price and eventually find a good deal.

The next thing that you can do is to understand the property trend of the area you are interested in. While doing this there are two critical aspects that you must consider; the first is you must know the rate and if there is an average increase in price and second, gauge the trend as far as the volume of sales are considered. This means that you need to look at whether there is an increase in the sales. If both these aspects are moving in the right direction then you know that investing here is bound to work in your favour. When investing in property or the stock market it is necessary to keep a constant watch on these two aspects. At the same time, you must be careful when investing in a well-priced property, as the sales may fall and in turn reduce the price.

Learning about the supply of property especially in the marketplace is the next step. There are areas where there are few projects lined up, while other areas have over 15,000 projects that are estimated to be complete within the following year. The same can be said when investing in houses. Competing with new constructions that are yet to come up can limit the escalation in price. The best investment would be where supply is less and has a huge demand. This is a smart investment.

Another useful tip is to follow your own instinct as far as the macro conditions of real estate is concerned. If you believe that local property is over valued, then refrain from making any investments. Similarly, if you believe that the prices are going to escalate then it would be ideal to invest. You are in a better position to understand the economic conditions of your locality and based on this knowledge you can make your decision.

And last but not the least, you must understand the risk involved and also have sufficient funds to overcome it. The property you invest in will have certain gains and losses that come with it. You can gain from it if your intention is to resell.
