Continue to AVOID investing in raw undeveloped land. Land is almost impossible to finance and won't appreciate until after the SFH market stabilizes and is appreciating.
However, land is cheap and even cheaper to hold and maintain. If your investment strategies are focused on the long term then land could possibly be an option.
But invest cautiously.
Also avoid short sales. They take too long to complete and waste your time and energy. Besides most of the strategies described from above are less work and will produce a higher profit margin.
Some current trends spotted on the horizon are due to the inability of the banks and mortgage companies to lend money without numerous restrictions and delays.
Successful real estate investors are always looking for other means to
fund their deals. This has created new opportunity in the financial
fields for anyone with a
self directed IRA account, cash, or access to OPM -
other people's money.
So what's an investor to do?
Act like the bank and lend money back to other investors, rehabbers, or anyone needing hard money loans, or transactional funding.
With these short term strategies your money will turn over fast giving you the ability to continually roll it.
For the long term, many investors are now offering lease options and owner financing to retail buyers. The investor gets maximum price and high interest for a long term and it's backed by the security of the property which reduces the risk.
Don't be a gambler, analyze the real estate market trends in your area before you invest.
