For an experienced and clever investor, creative real estate investing is a technique that can bring in profits beyond our imagination. Many investors use rehabbing to build fortunes. These investors seek run down, neglected, ugly properties for very less, sometimes lot less than their market value because of their decrepit condition. They then fix the property keeping costs of repair as low as possible, repaint the property, giving them a face lift and manage to sell the property at an amazing price bringing them huge profits!
How to Rehab a Property: This field of investing in real estate is good for experienced and knowledgeable investors not recommended for novices. The investor seeking to rehab a property should study the location as well as the structural design of the house, paying attention to the kind of neighborhood it is located in, shopping facilities as well as transport facilities available in that locale. The investors should have a good idea of the local market, the current land value, must be experienced in rehabbing to judge what needs fixing, the ability to estimate the cost of rehabbing a property, should decide if he wants to rehab it himself or let a contractor do it for him. Consider all aspects to try and get the house at a greater profit and work things out that with minimum costs the property gets to look presentable and try and sell it for its current value or higher. The investor should have a good idea about the latest trends in color and interior decorations spending within a preplanned budget that will help make the rehabbed property more desirable to the buyers. It is better to do the rehabbing yourself as you can significantly lower costs cutting it buy nearly 50% than when a contractor is hired to do the job. It will be better if the investor is trained professionally to fix houses, as he will have a clear idea of the work that needs to be done and how to get it done at lowest costs possible.
Some investors make major money investing in and rehabbing commercial real estate, others are experts in rehabbing obsolete homes and make huge profits by selecting properties near a lake, yet others specialize in rehabbing condos in places, where there is significant demand for condos. Some investors rehab and sell their property at a good profit usually yet others rehab, refinance and rent the property to get better returns on investments. There are investors who acquire homes for say $100,000, rehab it for say $20,000 and sell it for $300,000! The sky is the limit for experienced real estate investors who invest in rehabs!
