Emerging Real Estate Markets: How to Find and Profit from Up-and-Coming Areas

Emerging Real Estate Markets: How to Find and Profit from Up-and-Coming Areas

How a Dirt-Poor Landscaper Crackedthe Code to Emerging Market Real Estate Investing—and Built a Financial Empire

While many real estate markets have cooled off, there are major hot spots throughout the country that are booming due to population growth and urban expansion. These emerging markets are where the next wave of big-time real estate profits will be found. In Emerging Real Estate Markets, David Lindahl shows you how to find these markets, get started investing with little of your own cash, and maximize your profits.

The key lies in knowing how real estate markets cycle through ups and downs. If you know what to look for, you can tell when a market is about to heat up. Invest at the right time in the right place, and your profits will be dramatic. Does that sound too good to be true? It’s not. The tactics you’ll read here helped Lindahl, a landscaper when he started investing in real estate, to build a real estate empire!

Even if your market isn’t currently heating up, Lindahl will show you long-distance “hands-off” strategies for finding and investing in other markets that are. He also provides practical strategies for investing in markets in any stage of the cycle so you can invest no matter where you are or where your market is.

It’s Saturday and that means it’s time for Burbed’s book club (or, “Click this link and buy stuff from Amazon” Day).

Let’s face it, with the current credit crisis it may be hard for landscaper to invest in real estate in the emerging market known as the Bay Area.

That’s right… the Bay Area. Obviously, not the Real Bay Area – that’s emerged, and is very proud. But let’s look at the hidden gems like Gilroy, Morgan Hill, and East San Jose. I think there’s a lot of opportunities there and maybe you can use the techniques from this book to prove that they are.

Lindahl was a landscaper when he started. And now he’s awesome. You can be too!

Personally I love phrase OPM. I remember people dropping it oh so liberally in the good ol’ days of 2005. OPM this, OPM that. What? You’re not OPMing? Oh, I am so OPMing! OPM BABY!

Or… my back hurts! What do I do? Get some OPM!

Let’s bring the cult of OPM back. Build some statues, erect some temples. Let’s bow before the god OPM and see how He can help us all become rich!

It’s Saturday! Time for this week’s book recommendation!

Fast Real Estate Profits in Any Market: The Art of Flipping Properties–Insider Secrets from the Experts Who Do It Every Day

In real estate markets all around the country, real estate “flippers” have discovered that a small down payment, a little paint, some cleaning, and some time can net them tens (even hundreds) of thousands of dollars in profits, possibly tax-free. Small upgrades to the kitchen, bathrooms, and living areas, and the “ugly” house they bought for $200,000 in June can be sold for $300,000 in October. Real estate investing has created more millionaires than any other investment vehicle in this country. Real estate flipping refers to the practice of finding a property that is for sale—usually priced below-market—and then selling it soon after it is bought for a quick profit. Finally there’s a comprehensive, no-nonsense book that teaches you everything you need to build wealth through flipping properties quickly, legally, and ethically. You don’t need great credit, a real estate license, or large sums of capital or experience to get started. There has never been a better time to invest in real estate than today. This new book offers first-time and returning real estate investors tactics for making a fortune. Even if you have little or no money, you can find success in real estate investing by “flipping.” Flipping properties can be a part-time or full-time business for anybody. You will learn all of the paperwork involved in real estate transactions, including deeds, mortgages, contracts, notes, and titles; new FHA regulations; how to begin investing with little or no cash; locate opportunities; work with real estate agents; increase curb appeal; locate the financing you need; and most importantly, purchase properties for pennies on the dollar and prepare them for a quick sale. The book is loaded with case studies and success stories—from real people. You will uncover secrets that expert real estate investors use every day. This comprehensive resource contains a wealth of modern tips and strategies for getting started in this very lucrative area of real estate investing.

Find It, Fix It, Flip It!: Make Millions in Real Estate–One House at a Time

It’s Saturday… that means it is time for Burbed’s book of the week! Here’s today:

Find It, Fix It, Flip It!: Make Millions in Real Estate–One House at a Time

Much has been written about real estate these days, from inflated prices to the softening of the market. It can be difficult to sort the good from the bad, the reality from the hyperbole, but Corbett, television host and actor, manages to relay practical use-it-now information. What’s his gig? Insider-type information and established methods that will drive successful deals. His hints include controlling every step of the process; including a closet for each room legally to be considered a bedroom; upgrading to high-tech digital thermostats; and avoiding FSBOs (for sale by owners). Before-and-after photographs enliven a fairly high-powered text, as do a bundle of flip tips and trade secrets. Occasionally, self-help verbiage creeps in, such as “give yourself the power to accomplish anything you set your sights on.” Otherwise, chock-full of value-added information–enough, perhaps, to overcome a saggy real-estate venture.

I don’t know about you, but I’m always hungry for more information. And where do I usually turn to? That’s right – by asking television hosts and actors. Who else?

But here’s the part that fascinates me – why would you avoid FSBO’s?

There’s only one wayto find out – buy this book today by clicking on the link. Help support Burbed!

Sure you can click on the link and see some of the reviews for yourself, but what good are they? They’re all from jealous, bitter, renters. For example:

CONS:
But the book itself doesn’t offer anything specific. What I mean is, this is more of a book on how to have the proper attitude and the proper mindset. It isn’t a step by step manual on how to conduct real estate deals you want in the high end market. If you are looking for a how to book, this is the wrong book for you. If you want to “feel” good and “think” rich, then this would tickle your curiosity.

Uh, hello. Everyone knows that to be rich, you must think rich!

You must aspire to be a millioniare, to become a millionaire!

If a book doesn’t help inspire you to aspire, then really… what good is it? That’s why you should clink the link, and buy the book today!

Thanks to Burbed reader Tony for this find!

Recommendation: 2 Years to a Million in Real Estate

It’s Saturday again, and means it’s time for Burbed’s book of the week! Let’s take a look at this one:

2 Years to a Million in Real Estate

Holy moley!

Let’s face it, times are tough these days and there aren’t quite as many hot jobs in the Valley right now. Sure there are plenty of C-level, VP, Director+ management jobs available – but Burbed is a site for all people. Execs and non-execs.

For you non-execs who might be struggling, for fresh college grads, with this book you can quit your day job and become a MILLIONAIRE PROPERTY OWNER!

Hey that’s great ‘cuz you don’t have a day job! You’re half way to becoming a millionaire already!

Don’t believe me? Let’s look at a professional review:

“This is the success story of an ex-dot-com employee who got tired of working long hours at a great job for 10 years and watching his fellow workers lose their jobs. He accidentally discovered real estate’s market-value appreciation, leverage, tax savings, cash flow, reliability and freedom from a 9-to-5 workday. In the process, he became a multimillionaire, and he shows readers how they can have the same result.” — Bruss, Robert J. San Francisco Chronicle. 20061208

If this book doesn’t speak to Valley readers, I don’t know what does.

Click the link and buy this amazing book today. Give it as a gift for graduation come this Summer. (Or just click the link and buy anything to helped Burbed out!)
