The 7 Profit Centers Of Owning Real Estate When most people think of investing in real estate, they think of the obvious, “appreciation”(the increase in value of the property over time). The truth is however, that real estate can bring profits and financial benefits in 7 different ways. This is the foundation of investing in real estate for profit. 1. The first profit center is EQUITY. Equity is defined as the fair market value minus the debt service (mortgage) 2. The second profit center is LEVERAGE. This is the ability to buy more with less money. 3. The third profit center is APPRECIATION. This is the increase of the value of the property over time (as mentioned above). 4. The fourth profit center is PRINCIPAL REDUCTION. This is the reduction of mortgage owing over time through mortgage payments(paydown). 5. The fifth is CASH FLOW. When the income you bring in...

The Purchase Offer - Three Important Clauses
Jarek BucholcJarek Bucholc   April 18, 2018   6973   0   2   0   0   0
Many home buyers, and even some investors, seem to approach a real estate purchase offer as just an opening of negotiations. It can be this, of course, but it is also a legally binding contract the moment the seller signs it. You don't get to change the terms after that, or back out of the deal. That is, unless you have the right language in the offer to begin with. Purchase Offer Clauses To Protect You 1. Inspections This is perhaps one of the more important clauses in a purchase offer, and is common. But make sure you get the wording right. Ask for help if necessary, but the point is to make it possible to cancel the offer if any inspections show problems you don't want to deal with. Such a clause might read something like this; "This offer is contingent on the buyer's approval of the results of a termite inspection...

Jarek BucholcJarek Bucholc   March 22, 2018   3671   0   2   0   0   0
Foreclosure is a court action taken by the mortgagee or the lender asking the court to cancel the equity of redemption to the mortgagor. The second and third mortgages should have a clause saying that if first is in default, the others are automatically in default too and they can take action against the borrower or the mortgagor. Redemption is the right of the mortgagor to have clear title to the property after paying the loan fully. Redemption period is usually provided to pay off interest, fees and back payments. There are basically two types of foreclosures. The first one is called Judicial. In this type of foreclosure, the mortgagee petitions the courts and begins a lawsuit against responsible parties. The second type is Non-judicial. With this, the power of sale has the processes covered in the mortgage documents. Lenders have the right to sell the property.

One of the most overlooked methods that homeowners may have available to save their homes from foreclosure is obtaining a specific type of loan called a reverse mortgage. Because of its limited applicability, it is not frequently discussed as an option, but it may provide certain foreclosure victims with one more valuable solution. A reverse mortgage is usually used by homeowners over the age of 62 who are trying to supplement their monthly income. Instead of paying a mortgage every month, the reverse mortgage will pay the homeowners. The payments can be taken in a number of ways; for example, the homeowners may receive one lump sum from the mortgage company, get a certain amount every month, or be given a line of credit to be used whenever it is needed. Even if there is already a mortgage on the property, a reverse mortgage can be used. The main consideration will be how...

1. Landlords on rentfaster.ca , Craiglist or Kijiji - Check out these websites under the “houses/apt for rent” sections, and you’ll find a huge list of property owners, along with their phone numbers and property addresses!
