Are You Really A Twenty First Century Investor
Today's residential real estate market for investors has become very competitive in most major markets. The vast majority of real estate investing seminars and clubs are encouraging you to search out desperate home owners or distressed properties to be rehabbed.
Not to mention the fact that today's disillusioned stock investors have now realized that residential real estate investing offers better returns, with less capital risks. As you seek to identify your lucrative real estate opportunities, have you noticed that the good deals are getting harder to find?
I am not here to discourage you from investing in real estate, but would like to share real estate investment opportunities and information with you?..opportunities that only a few people are aware of and regularly participate in. That's right; I am referring to a niche investment market that has VERY LITTLE competition. This unique information is currently setting new trends within the commercial real estate investment community!
I know you are ready for me to tell you about this quiet niche investment market, so I will...... it is?.??. ???..Commercial Real Estate. There are HUNDREDS, maybe THOUSANDS of niche market investment opportunities within Commercial Real Estate. And by the way........ the main reason why so few investors go after commercial real estate, and that might include yourself, is that you're not convinced that you would qualify for commercial financing ! ! Most investors are lead to believe that a 20% down payment is required to start the process for purchasing commercial properties. WELL, THIS IS NOT TRUE!
Let's do the math now?? financing a property that cost $5 Million dollars with 20% down would require you to put down $1,000,000 and you would still have to add in legal fees and closing costs. Yes, I know that only a few investors or even investment groups are able to meet these down payment requirements. Your first mistake as an investor would be to go to your local bank to seek financing, or worse, go to private or hard money lenders. First, remember the banks are regulated by the federal government and they are required to underwrite conforming loans and second, bank loans tend to be very structured and are generally inflexible to your project needs. In most cases, THESE LOANS will require a 20% DOWN PAYMENT OR MORE! The only benefit of using private or hard money lenders is when" NO OTHER FINANCING OPTIONS EXIST FOR YOU!"
FINANCING is the key ingredient to identifying lucrative real estate investment opportunities, yet, so few people truly understand the power of knowing WHERE to find the right financing and HOW to get it! WHAT IF you had several lenders, today, that would only require you have 2 to 3% down payments (on certain qualified projects)? WOULD THIS BE OF INTEREST TO YOU? A $5,000,000 loan with 2- 3% down payment equates to putting down $100,000 to $150,000. As an individual investor, this down payment would still be pretty steep for you however, today, many residential investors are already joining and forming Investment clubs to increase and enhance their purchasing power. TO ALL residential real estate investors....... the REAL MESSAGE here is that you are closer to buying commercial real estate than you think! This example should make it clear to you that finding the right financing is the FIRST step and the key ingredient to your real estate investing??.. however, there is a PROBLEM.
The problem is that as an investor, you have been trained to shop for properties FIRST, and almost never for financing. Finding the right financing FIRST will save you and make you more money over time, than you purchasing the undervalued properties and selling them later at or above market prices. I will repeat this?.. MOST REAL ESTATE INVESTORS DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF FINANCING within the investment equation. The ability to save on the amount of the interest rate you are being charged?. month after month?.. year after year? 2 or 3 % or more is huge. You may also find out what I already know?.. . by securing the financing first?..THIS OPENS UP NEW INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES!
Let's review some of the BENEFITS that come with purchasing Commercial Real Estate:
1) Unlike residential real estate, commercial real estate's only purpose is to make money for its investors. If there was a 7% cap rate on the $5,000,000 sample property, it would cash flow $350,000 annually.
2) Do you think you would enjoy having professional tenants with long term leases?
3) Would it excite you if your investment projects qualify for Non recourse financing?
4) You can totally eliminate the process of rehabbing properties.
5) How about this?? YOU no longer have to chase tenants down to collect rent.
6) You no longer have to pay penalties to lenders for not being in owner occupied properties.
7) Expand your investment search throughout all 50 states.
8) Last and probably the MOST BENEFICIAL of all of the perks?.You can qualify to purchase these properties using your commercial tenant's credit rating, business cash flow and their long-term rental leases!
