Edwin Covarrubias On Sacramento Real Estate Investing-Buying & Selling First House

Everyone says buying your first house makes you feel like an adult. What no one mentions is that selling it turns you right back into a child. I think depending on when you sell summer 2005 or now 2011, this is very true?

What have been some of your experinces that reflect this statement?

Buying Sacramento Real Estate Pays More Than a CD or Mutual Fund Return

Investing in Sacramento Real Estate looks better each day.

The investor who permits himself to be stampeded or unduly worried by unjustified market declines in his holdings is perversely transforming his basic advantage into a basic disadvantage. A down market in Sacramento is a good thing for investors, buy now not later!

Real estate has always been a long-term investment period. There are some who can flip a house quickly but the margins a small and these people have well-developed teams.   Some who flip a house spend so much time, they could have bought and rented it out and received income. Others buy and make mistakes that increase their costs.

Don’t take this approach, invest to hold, get income now and sale later.  For the average investor or first timer you need to take a different approach. When the real estate market bounces back, you want to be in a holding position by then, before the crowds come.   Just like in the stark market, buy low and sale high, well those fundamentals pertain her also.  Take your time and get to know the area and crunch the numbers to make sure you know what your income and profit will be, the numbers don’t lie.

What do instincts mean in real estate investing?

When you are in business and you have a intuitive feeling inside you thats telling you something, please listen to it, especially in real estate. Investing in real estate can be a roller coaster ride and you have to have the knowledge, stamina and stomach for it in the up and down markets.  Always listen to your own instincts if you have analyzed all the information.  Don’t always look at what the situation is at the moment but look at what it will be later, and that my friends is what makes you a champion in real estate investing.

Champions have to have two things in any business, skill and will but they must have more will than skill to make there investment decisions succeed and to never quit.

Sincerely,

Edwin Covarrubias

Sacramento Real Estate has 15-20% Returns For Investors!

This is not the Summer of June 2005, its 2010! And the only people who are investing in Sacramento are the seasoned and experienced investors with some first timers who done their homework.  This means, now is the time to be securing a real estate portfolio and holding it for a 5-7 year investment.

Prices at these levels make sense because they cash flow. Rents are stable and this allows them to be leased out quckly which in turn adds to the positive return annually.   Dont wait for the crowds like the ones in 2005 to make you feel it’s time to invest.  As I always said, buying the right property is one thing, managing it correctly can make it a succesfull investment or a loss.

Do yo think this is in Sacramento its the market is positioned for invesors to be in a buy/hold strategy?

Sincerely,

Edwin Covarrubias

Making Yourself Part of Your Investment Team In Sacramento

Remember, getting into real estate is easy, getting out is harder!  That feeling is being felt now by many   investors who bought at the height of the market in 2005 in Sacramento because they ignored some or all basic investment fundamentals. Once you closed escrow, it™s yours and that™s when you   start to find out about all the things you should have known before or asked of more questions of.     That™s because now your not in a rush and you can think clearly now.  I’ve always said, œthe only time you get in trouble in real estate is when your in a hurry or feel sorry for someone.
Investing in real estate means not seeing things as they are but as they can be. If you can   pick the right property in a good location at a good price, then you have succeeded in investing in real estate.

Looking around all of Sacramento and the outlying areas, you see many properties for sale, the key is to pick the best one for your money. The key is to pick the one with no œunexpected cost in repairs that overrun your drafted budget. The key is to turn this place around and lease it at the targeted rent as quickly as possible. Do your homework, and dont be in a rush.

Edwin Covarrubias – Real Estate Investing 2010 Sacramento

Who wants to make MONEY in Real Estate?  We all do right?, but the problem in real estate investing is time-points, all level of investors jump in at different stages, and that makes the foundation for set programmed future results. If you jumped in Summer 2005 because a friend or realtor told you to, well!!!, I know the outcome!!!  If you had a good experienced trustworthy realtor you would have not bought in 2005 period!!!, or 2006.Currently, the Sacramento real estate market is a good value for investing in income producing properties.  2010 is the year to set your base and start acquiring properties.       In this market if you follow certain basic conservative real estate investing principals which people forgot about in the last real estate boom such as:

1.               20-25 % down on a low risk tolerance loan product.
2.               Target the best income producing areas.
3.               Target the best income producing properties.
4.               Research and understand all your anticipated expense ahead of time.
5.               Estimate carefully your vacancy rate.
6.               Remodel/repair property prior to renting and from estimate plan a monthly cost going forward.
7.               Price point your exact rental income so it rents fast.
8.               Keep up with market rates and the competition
9.               Most importantly, understand the worse case scenario and plan an exit strategy.

What you have to ask yourself is this?  Do I invest now while there are no crowds or invest when prices are moving up and investors coming in like a cattle drive.   Don’t repeat 2005, get in now like 2000 conditions!!!  We can help you find a cash flow positive property!     So come with someone you can trust and explain things to you all the way because we are the one and only
