As real estate investors and entrepreneurs, it's important to learn to not following the crowd – where all the competitors are – and choosing to go the “road less traveled” where I could continue to work independent of the permission or approval of others.  You might find it productive to put this slogan on your own bulletin board too.

Want to know the secrets to success?  I've been pondering the enigma of why bright, energetic, ambitious people don't become financially successful despite all their efforts.

If ignorance breeds fear, and fear blocks people from becoming financially successful, using single family houses to help you climb capital mountain is a proven remedy for mediocrity. Millions of people have created nest eggs simply by buying a house using mortgage debt, then paying off the loan over time. Let the record speak for itself; how many people do you know personally whose lifetime savings are represented by their home equity? Today wouldn't be too soon to get started buying.

 The tax code is replete with timing deadlines that can be used to negotiate better terms. Section 1031 requires a seller to have identified qualified replacement properties within 45 days, and to have completed the purchase transaction within the earlier of 180 days or by the date the next tax return is due, including extensions. Many a seller who uses up all this interval shopping for bargains is eventually confronted with the prospect of either buying something, or paying taxes.

I have lots of land here and there that nobody but me seems to want (and I’m not so sure about me). A few days ago I was trying to buy a lot zoned for mobile homes. The seller, who was also a broker, wanted $63,000 cash, but at her price, I wasn’t interested.

 Rarely when I hear people complain about being able to buy a house today that makes sense as a rental do I ever hear them mention using anything other than conventional bank financing. They are quick to point out, that even in the relatively low interest rate environment that we have today, the rising prices of houses has outstripped rents so far that nobody can afford to buy a house and hold it as a long term rental.

 When homeowners start considering a voluntary move from one residence to another, two problems immediately arise: One of these is to determine how much they’ll be able to net from the sale of their current house, and how much they’ll be able to buy their next house for. The second is how to sell their current home, and yet be able to stay in it until they are able to move into their next home. Being able to solve these common problems is the key to being able to buy and sell real estate with very little "holding time" and the tieing up of a lot of money.
