We hear people at real estate investment association (REIA) meetings and similar venues ask: “What is the ‘best’ real estate investment strategy?” Is it wholesaling, or some other “buy and flip” strategy? What about “fix and flip” or “buy and hold?” Truth be told, these are all good strategies, when employed at the right time and in the right place.
But the question being asked is not really “what is the best real estate investment strategy,” but rather, what is the best real estate investment strategy NOW, in this market, under these conditions.
It is axiomatic that the best deals are not to be found where everyone else is looking. If everyone else is buying stock in Acme Corporation, it’s probably not a good idea to invest too much in Acme stock. Likewise, if everyone is buying gold or other precious metals, you likely won’t make a lot of money with that investment, either. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying you won’t make money with investments that everyone else is buying; I’m just saying these are probably not the best investments for making money at this time, under these economic conditions.
The same principle is true for real estate. If everyone is wholesaling, you won’t make much money wholesaling. If everyone is “fixing and flipping,” you probably won’t make a lot doing that, either. Likewise with being a landlord, that is, “buying and holding.”
If you’re content with wholesale deals that will earn you only a few thousand dollars at a time, or “fixing and flipping” deals that will likely earn you only modest returns, or “buying and holding” deals that will tie up large amounts of your capital for long periods of time, please feel free to continue competing with all the other investors at your local REIA club.
If, however, you would like to take the real estate investment road that is less traveled, and enjoy the benefits of less competition and superior profit potential, you should consider investing in discounted mortgage notes. Note investing is less complicated — and far less risky — than it may sound. And it’s not even a new strategy: Donald Trump’s grandfather invested in Notes, as we have learned from a copy of his Will.
We have put this short video together (see below) to give you a brief introduction to Note Investing.
