When you decide to make the beautiful colonial Paradise of Yucatan your new home, you will need to decide of you want to buy a Mexico home for sale, or work with Mexico rentals. The good news is that Yucatan real estate offers good options in both, and both have clear advantages. The following are some questions to ask yourself when you come to the point of making this important decision.
Will you be staying in Yucatan all year round?
Are you staying all year, or only heading down for the winters? Or perhaps only for a few vacations every year? Those who are moving down permanently (for retirement, investment, relocation, etc.) will often lean towards buying and owning a home. Those who are coming and going, my find it just as advantageous to find a reliable rental service to find a property suitable for each visit. Of course, this could still easily go either way.
How many funds do you have to invest upfront?
Buying a home is often considered an investment since it offers savings in the long term. However, while you dont need to come up with the full amount (30% is usually required for a mortgage or financing), you do need access to these funds and you need to be sure that you can comfortably afford to invest at the moment. Renting offers a way to start enjoying life in Yucatan while you continue to save up to buy.
Do you have a specific idea for a dream home?
Rentals offer a variety of choices, but those who have a very specific idea of what they would like their colonial home to be like often choose to buy a fixer-upper and remodel it to make it the home of their dreams.
Do you enjoy projects?
If you choose the renovation option, you have to enjoy personal projects. While the work will be done by professionals, and you can even hire an architect to oversee the project, you will still have to make the final choices of how things will be done, when, etc.
Do you like to take your time to search?
If you prefer a longer time to view homes and wait for that perfect property, you might want to consider a rental while you search. This option can be easier when you work with an agency that offers both sales and rentals.
Whichever option you choose, you will be enjoying a very relaxing, low-cost lifestyle in a charming colonial setting. Talk to an agency which works in both to help you.

To quote Edgar Allen Poe -It was the worst of times, It was the best of Times-. The worst of times is painfully apparent. An economic downturn fueled by the housing crisis has resulted in historically low interest rates and declines in home values. Even has been drastically affected by economic downturn. However this has made it the best of times as far as real estate income competing with Certificate of Deposits or other fixed rate investments.
As you see, currently all over the country home values are lower cause of economic crisis around the world and also media reports done some damage too. But in the long term it’ll again continue to rise up at least same level it was. And it’ll result an appreciation of 5 to 6% profit on investment on real estate in a calendar year. Thus, it is now the crucial time to get a real estate property. The old rule of thumb for residential investing was to search for property that would rent for one per cent of the purchase price per month. In other words, a home purchased for $70,000 would need to rent for $700 per month. Rarely do these numbers come together these days. However, with interest rates so low, that formula can be modified and still achieve a healthy return on investment. For instance a house purchased for $65,000 rented for $550 per month would give a gross return of 10%. Allowing for maintenance, taxes, and insurance one should still be able to achieve a 7% net return. There are also tax advantages to consider and should you decide to leverage (use some borrowed money) results could be even better. There is no guarantee of course and management is required. Harp and Associates does have a property management service if you want to only be an investor. To avoid costly surprises I recommend a maintenance fund be set up and funded each month. This fund is used to cover repairs and protect against a month when the property is vacant. We are always glad to discuss . Whether it is about rentals, purchasing, selling, or investing, we are here to assist you in any way we can.

There are many ways to close a deal in real estate investing. As a foreclosure investor youve probably heard of the famed, simultaneous closing, when purchasing a property from the homeowner. Its a great way to make a profit on your time and effort without using your own money to purchase a property.
A simultaneous close is when you buy the property from the homeowner and then immediately turn around and sell that property to an investor. You very often are only on the title of the property for a few minutes at a time. Plus, you can often arrange the deal so that you end up buying that house with your investors money!
How the Simultaneous Close is Initiated You initiate a simultaneous close on a property sale by asking your investor to wire their money into the title company that you are using for escrow. You have already given the title company prepares the two closing documents; one is where you buy the house for $70,000 and the other is where you sell the house to your investor for say $90,000. That means you get a profit of $20,000 after both closings are complete.
When the title company prepares both of these documents at once, theyll notice that your buyer has already wired their money into the companys escrow account. The title company will see that when you sell this property to your buyer youll be getting $90,000 and that the buyer has already transferred his or her money into the title company.
So, rather than asking you to wire your own money into the title company so they can initiate the first sale (from the homeowner to you) theyll just use $70,000 of the $90,000 thats been transferred into the title company by your buyer. Then, theyll turn around and complete the second sale (from you to the buyer) and leave you with $20,000 profit without even using your own money!
Basically youve just flipped a house, which in proper terminology is referred to as Wholesaling a house and all without using your own money! As you can imagine there is a little more to the process of making a simultaneous close, but this is the gist of the procedure. Its an excellent way to get involved in real estate investment and get profits with very little starting cash.
Purchasing a house can be extremely thrilling, however when you are tackling multiple offers, it is tremendously important to keep cool head and not let your feelings — or your competitive nature — overshadow your good judgment because there are a lot of unscrupulous maneuvers a homeowner can implement when confronted with potential purchasers attempting to outbid each other for their home. Real estate professionals are also susceptible to taking advantage of both the purchasers and sellers to boost their commissions higher and closure rates more impactful. Without a doubt there are accepted rules of engagement that deal with such scenarios, however they are not always respected — so all involved has to stay focused and alert for signs of foul play.
To curtail unfair tactics that arise in the bidding procedures, some provinces literally make it illegal for sellers to list any price that they do not plan to agree to simply to escalate a bidding war. There are specific regulations involving multiple offers that involve non-disclosure of details while demanding that any alterations to the bidding procedure must be discussed with all parties before implementing. However in the search to finagle a higher bid, often times critical facts are intentionally revealed or even misrepresented to influence the potential bidders.
Ideally, when buyers find themselves up against multiple offers, they will present an agreement that has as few terms and conditions as feasible and gives a fair amount for the home with the hopes it will entice the homeowner. It is generally hard for prospective purchasers to resist the urge to make excessive offers in the heat of the moment, a behavior that can be exploited by unscrupulous sellers and agents who could send back a perfectly good offer to see if it can be sweetened.
Bargaining strategies frequently incorporate an agreement between the seller and their agent not to disclose multiple offers, and purchasers in these circumstances are not even alerted that there is competition for their offer. Most sellers, however, are very keen on letting all purchasers know that they are anticipating other offers, but it then becomes their duty to make sure no sensitive facts leak out and that the process remains fair for all parties. This does not stop some realtors from communicating with their colleagues by making it public that bidding has started on one of their listings.
Another tactic sometimes used by unscrupulous sellers is deceiving potential purchasers, and also their realtors, by entertaining offers they have no desire of considering just to panic the other purchasers and starting a bidding war. A few homeowners even begin with a very low price in hopes of creating massive interest that will generate bids so high they actually go over the value of the property. However such schemes may backfire when word gets out among the real estate industry that a seller is influencing a bidding war because they will refrain from bringing their buyers to look at the property.
The most difficult aspect around real estate in this day and age is getting people to come look at your properties and possibly buy. It can be difficult to make a profit if people are not aware of you and your business. It will benefit you greatly to take some time and develop a marketing strategy to help your business. It may take some time to figure out what real estate marketing strategies will work for you but you will benefit greatly from it.
When it comes to making a name for yourself in the real estate industry it is important that you have a good client base that is interested in the properties that you buy and sell. If people are unaware of you and what you do than that is no good. That is where an effective marketing strategy can help you greatly.
The amount of people who are aware of you and your business is directly related to how well you do as a real estate professional. When more people are aware of you and your work, it becomes more likely that they will remember your name in the future when they need the aide of a real estate professional.
When it comes to cost effective ways to manage your marketing, the Internet is a fantastic place to start. With the Internet you have the ability to connect with potential clients in a way that lets you share all relevant information with them in order to maybe sign with them.
The business that a social media website can bring you can be very helpful at times. It has the ability to network you with many people that you would have never met out in the real world. When it comes to cheap ways to market, a social media presence can be very useful.
When a previous client of yours is extremely happy with the work that you did for them, they may want to recommend you to their family and friends for further business. Making sure to thank them for their business can go a long way in ensuring that they will send more business your way.
To have a good marketing plan does not mean that you will have to spend a whole lot of money. There are many cheap ways that you can follow to increase your visibility and make people aware of the work that you do. Just know that spending money on marketing plans is wise because you will more than likely make back much more than you spent.
If you are looking to bring more business your way, you should invest in a solid marketing plan. There are many real estate marketing ideas available that will certainly benefit you in the long run, bringing you business and money, ensuring that you stay in the business for time to come.
Networking is an important skill in any business if the goal is a profitable business. The same holds true for real estate investing, at least on behalf of those who are serious about pursuing real estate investing as a business rather than a part time hobby. Either way, in all honesty, the ability to network for potential business partners, investors, and join ventures along the way can be critical to providing the type of diversity your real estate portfolio needs in order to be solid in a market that is nothing short of volatile.
With the recent collapse of the sub prime lending market, networking has become more essential than ever before for real estate investors. Networking can not only lead you to potential properties that might prove profitable but also to people who need your specific specialty or may be looking for a property you have access to. Even if you share your profits, as long as you are also sharing the workload, you can find a very favorable working environment when you join someone else in a venture such as wholesaling properties, offering lease options, or even working together on a quick flip situation (though caution and clearly defined parameters are best in any of these situations it is critical when flipping a property).
Whenever you have the opportunity to network with other real estate investors it is in your best interest to do so. Dont limit yourself to only networking with those who engage in the same sort of investing you are most comfortable with as diversity is important to all real estate portfolios and you never know when an ideal flip will come across your desk that you can pass along, while making a bit of a profit from the transaction of course (to a flipper) or a perfect buy and hold unit will catch the eye of someone who generally purchases properties with the intent of flipping. Contacts work both ways and you can all stand to profit from the eyes and ears of others, whether as a joint venture, equity sharing project, or simply acting as business partners on specific projects for quicker results and an extra set of hands and eyes on the job.
If you arent a part of a real estate investors networking group in your area, take the time to find them and join. The contacts you will make are invaluable if you intend to make real estate investing your primary business now or hope to make it your primary source of income in the future. Join as many groups as possible today (locally and within a reasonable driving distance) and see what a difference they make in the volume and scope of your real estate investing business.
