REO – Complicated Real Estate Deals?

155316939

 

According to Wikipedia:

“Real estate owned or REO is a term used in the United States to describe a class of property owned by a lender—typically a bank, government agency, or government loan insurer—after an unsuccessful sale at a foreclosure auction.”

The biggest misconception about REO properties is the properties can be purchased for large discounts below Market Value.  When REO properties are priced, the financial institution is not pricing according to market prices.  Instead the price is a combination of what the Bank is owed, late fees, attorney fees, costs of some repairs, auction costs and costs to get the property listed.

I am not saying great deals cannot be found but I am saying this market is not for everyone.  The two most important requirements for Investors interested in this market are Research and the ability to Negotiate.  This is usually a Team effort with the assistance of a Real Estate agent, a contractor and sometimes, a Real Estate Attorney.

Offers need a Letter of Intent (LOI) to be the front page of the offer.  The LOI explains the Investor’s reason for the purchase price being offered.  Discounts can usually be negotiated based on the condition of the property.  A detailed list is a necessary part of this part of the offer.  The repairs must be seen as “reasonable” by the Bank.  For example, putting granite counter-tops in the kitchen of a $100,000 house is not reasonable or necessary.

Experienced Real Estate Agents can greatly assist in assembling the paperwork needed including a Letter of Intent.  Find agents experienced in REO transactions.  The same way that not every Investor should be working with REO’s, neither should every Real Estate Agent.  Again, their most important skill is the ability to negotiate.

Our group has assembled a team of Real Estate Agents, contractors, negotiators and a Real Estate Attorney to help wade through these very “muddy” waters of Real Estate Investing.  Call us to purchase Real Estate Owned Investment Properties (REO).  We will also be publishing lists of REO properties 24 hours before they are publicly released by the financial organizations.  Email InvestSWFL@gmail.com with REO List in the email subject line.  Include your name, email, phone number, price range and type of property to get details emailed as we receive them.

Good Investing!

Greatest Home Seller in History?

Recently, I was having coffee with a number of my Real Estate peers and the subject of the Saint Joseph Statue was brought up.  I had known about the Statue for some time and have even used it on hard to sell properties.  My parents’ agent used the statue years ago to sell their house.

For those of you unfamiliar with Saint Joseph, he was Jesus of Nazareth’s earthly father.  He was a skilled carpenter and taught his skills to Jesus.  He made sure his family always had a home over their head.  For centuries, people have prayed to St. Joseph when they needed help in finding or selling a home.

Legend has it a group of Nuns in the early 1500’s needed land for their cloister.  They prayed to St. Joseph and then buried St. Joseph medals and continued to pray to him.  Shortly, after their prayers were answered and they received the much needed land.  Their medals were the first “St. Joseph Real Estate Sales Kit”.  Later the medals were replaced with small statues.

St. Joseph Real Estate Sales Kit

Whether you are a believer or not, the Legend is well known in Real Estate circles.  The “Real Estate Sales Kits” are available at many Real Estate Board stores.  Thousands of testimonials are available on online websites that sell the “St. Joseph Sales Kits”.  The statue is buried head down in front of the property.  A daily prayer is recited asking St. Joseph to help.  When the house sells, the owner is to dig up the statue and take it to their new home.  The statue is then buried head up and the blessings follow the family to their new home.

So, if you have a hard to sell property, you may want to look into this historic sales kit.  Will it help?  I can’t say but a little prayer never hurts!

Pending Home Sales Dip 0.8% in March

Posted on National Association of Realtors on April 27, 2017.

MEDIA CONTACT: ADAM DESANCTIS / 202-383-1178 / EMAIL(LINK SENDS E-MAIL)

WASHINGTON (April 27, 2017) — Pending home sales in March maintained their recent high level, but momentum slackened slightly in most of the country as dearth supply weighed on activity, according to the National Association of Realtors®. Only the South saw an uptick in contract signings last month.

The Pending Home Sales Index,* www.nar.realtor/topics/pending-home-sales, a forward-looking indicator based on contract signings, declined 0.8 percent to 111.4 in March from 112.3 in February. Despite last month’s decrease, the index is 0.8 percent above a year ago.

Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says sparse inventory levels caused a pullback in pending sales in March, but activity was still strong enough to be the third best in the past year. “Home shoppers are coming out in droves this spring and competing with each other for the meager amount of listings in the affordable price range,” he said. “In most areas, the lower the price of a home for sale, the more competition there is for it. That’s the reason why first-time buyers have yet to make up a larger share of the market this year, despite there being more sales overall.”

Pointing to revealing data from the March Realtors® Confidence Index, Yun worries that the painfully low supply levels this spring could heighten price growth — at 6.8 percent last month — even more in the months ahead. Homes in March came off the market at a near-record pace 1, and indicating an increase in the likelihood of listings receiving multiple offers, 42 percent of homes sold at or above list price (the second highest amount since NAR began tracking in December 2012).

“Sellers are in the driver’s seat this spring as the intense competition for the few homes for sale is forcing many buyers to be aggressive in their offers,” said Yun. “Buyers are showing resiliency given the challenging conditions. However, at some point — and the sooner the better — price growth must ease to a healthier rate. Otherwise sales could slow if affordability conditions worsen.”

Yun forecasts for existing-home sales to be around 5.64 million this year, an increase of 3.5 percent from 2016 (5.45 million). The national median existing-home price this year is expected to increase around 5 percent. In 2016, existing sales increased 3.8 percent and prices rose 5.1 percent.

The PHSI in the Northeast decreased 2.9 percent to 99.1 in March, but is still 1.8 percent above a year ago. In the Midwest the index declined 1.2 percent to 109.6 in March, and is now 2.4 percent lower than March 2016.

Pending home sales in the South rose 1.2 percent to an index of 129.4 in March and are now 3.9 percent above last March. The index in the West fell 2.9 percent in March to 94.5, and is now 2.7 percent below a year ago.

The National Association of Realtors®, “The Voice for Real Estate,” is America’s largest trade association, representing 1.2 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

# # #

1 Properties typically stayed on the market for 34 days in March, which is down from 47 days a year ago and is the second lowest since NAR began tracking in May 2011. The lowest was May 2016 at 32 days.

* The Pending Home Sales Index is a leading indicator for the housing sector, based on pending sales of existing homes. A sale is listed as pending when the contract has been signed but the transaction has not closed, though the sale usually is finalized within one or two months of signing.

The index is based on a large national sample, typically representing about 20 percent of transactions for existing-home sales. In developing the model for the index, it was demonstrated that the level of monthly sales-contract activity parallels the level of closed existing-home sales in the following two months.

An index of 100 is equal to the average level of contract activity during 2001, which was the first year to be examined. By coincidence, the volume of existing-home sales in 2001 fell within the range of 5.0 to 5.5 million, which is considered normal for the current U.S. population.

NOTE: NAR’s metropolitan area home price report for the first quarter will be released May 15, Existing-Home Sales for April will be reported May 24, and the next Pending Home Sales Index will be May 31; all release times are 10:00 a.m. ET.

How to Evaluate A Real Estate Investment Deal in Cape Coral, Florida

This blog was forwarded to me by one of my Wholesale Property Investors, Brandon Mitchell from his Investor Carrot web site.  Timeless information for anyone interested in Investing in Real Estate.  Thanks Brandon:

We talk with lots of people looking to buy real estate investment properties in Cape Coral and surrounding areas. Some of them know what they’re doing… and some of them are still in the learning process.

But, since our entire business is finding great deals… and often passing those deals onto real estate investors like you at huge discounts… I thought it would be a great idea to share with you some resources on how to effectively evaluate a real estate investment deal. This works in any market… Cape Coral, surrounding areas, florida, any other states across the country.

When you really boil it down… evaluating a real estate deal is a pretty simple process. If you’re looking to buy real estate as an investment, wholesale properties, hold them for rent… whatever, one of the most important parts is buying it right (i.e. – not overpaying).

So lets dive in.

How To Evaluate A Real Estate Deal – (for single family houses)

There are just a few main elements when you’re evaluating a deal.

  • Cost of repairs needed to get it back up to good condition
  • The after repair market value of the property (what it’s worth and can sell for today once it’s fixed up)
  • If you’re going to buy and hold for a rental… you need to know what you can rent it out for and what your “debt service” (mortgage payment) will be. Knowing this makes sure you’re buying so the property cash-flows each month

There are other things you can (and should) look at too… but those 3 are the main important things to look at first.

Cost of Repairs

One of the things you should do when you are looking at a property is find out how much it’ll cost you to fix it up to a point where it’s in great shape. In other words, the cost of repairs. This could be a new roof if it needs it, carpet, paint, a new kitchen, yard, maybe even more.

To find a good estimate of cost of repairs, the best advice we have is to get to know a contractor or two in your area and have them walk through the properties with you the first few times… have them quote out the repair cost… and build that into your offer.

After Repair Market Value

This is simple, but many investors get stuck on this part. This is essentially what you could sell the property for today… after you repaired it and brought it up to a great condition. This is found by finding out what other similar houses in the same area are actually selling for. NOTE: Don’t look at the “Listing” price… look at what houses similar to yours have actually sold for in the past 3 months. This helps you determine how much you could actually sell that house for if you had to… right now. You never want to over pay to a point where you can’t sell it for a profit in the next 3 months.

How do you find this? There are services out there that can help you with this… but often times the best way to find out the true value of a house is to talk to a Realtor that you know… or an appraiser. Heck, if you don’t know one… call up a few today… tell them you have a property that you’re potentially going to sell in the near future… and ask them what they think it should sell for.

Buy And Hold For Rental 

So, you’re going to buy and hold for rental? Great! You don’t need to worry about what it’ll sell for right away. What you need to know is if it’ll pencil out on a month to month basis. You know… cash flow.

So, talk to a mortgage broker (or a private lender) and find out what the monthly mortgage payment will be for that specific property.

Then find out what you can rent the place out for on a monthly basis.

Then, you work backwards… and find out at what purchase price your mortgage payment will be low enough so you can make the monthly cash flow you need to make on the property. Be sure to figure in other expenses too like property taxes, maintenance expenses, property management fees, and keeping money in reserves for future repairs.

So, your offer price here should be:

Monthly Mortgage – Monthly Rents – Operating Expenses – Taxes & Insurance – Monthly Cash Flow = Offer

Simple enough right?

The cool thing is, the more you’re bringing into the deal in cash… the lower your mortgage is.

Making An Offer

We’ve been talking about how to look at the numbers and analyze a real estate deal.

From there, just make an offer. Many times the properties we let you know about will already be so deeply discounted that we get multiple offers… often above our asking price.

So, if you really want a property… find out what is the bare max you could buy the property at… and offer that. Otherwise you may lose the deal because someone else is likely making an offer too.

With that said, the golden rule in real estate is to never over pay for a property. That’s why our own deal analyzing criteria is so darn strict… and why our buyers (like you) get such great deals.

I hope this little tutorial has helped you sharpen up your real estate deal analyzing skills… and we really look forward to working with you in the near future.

If you have any questions at all… don’t hesitate to contact us anytime for anything.

Happy investing!
