Arizona Real Estate Investing Tips

By now, many people have heard about real estate investing.  However, few of these people actually
know what real estate investing entails.  In fact, most knowledge about investing in real estate only
extends to the point that it has something to do with making money in houses.  Indeed, the simplest
explanation of real estate investing is that money is made through the purchase and resale of real
estate.  Anyone who has an interest in real estate investing needs to know more than this to be
successful in the arena.

All real estate investments start first with a purchase.  Once the real estate investing property is
purchased, there are several things an investor can do with it.  The quickest way to gain a profit is by
reselling the property at a price higher than what was paid for it.  To do this an investor either has to
purchase the property at a price much lower than market value.  Or, the investor can make some
enhancements to the house to improve its equity and then resell it.

After purchasing a real estate investing property, the investor might choose not to resell the property.  
Instead, the investor chooses to rent or lease the house for monthly rent.  In most cases, this method of
real estate investing does not yield immediate profit because the investor still pays a mortgage on the
property.  There are some instances when an investor has completely paid for the property and then
rents or leases the property.  In these cases, the monthly rent for the property is all profit for the
investor.

The primary objective of real estate investing is for the investor to make a profit.  To do this the investor
needs to purchase the real estate for as low as possible.  This is usually where the creativity of investors
comes into play.  Investors are constantly coming up with new methods of creative real estate investing
to increase their profits.

One of the most popular ways to purchase a property for cheap is to purchase a distressed property.  
These properties are prime for real estate investing.  Distressed properties usually have some negative
affect on their value because of appearance, condition, or the financial situation of the owner.  Real
estate investors can purchase distressed properties for a low price, do some work to fix them up, and
then resell the property at market value for a profit.

Another real estate investing strategy that is commonly used is purchasing foreclosed and
pre-foreclosed homes.  Investors can purchase foreclosed homes from an auction by bidding on it.  The
lower the bid, the higher the profit an investor is able to make.  Another real estate investing strategy is
offering assistance in pre-foreclosure situations.  Investors can provide capital to the homeowners to
keep their homes from being foreclosed.  In this situation, the investor takes the place of the mortgager
and allows the homeowner to pay a lower monthly price for the home.

The key to real estate investing is to purchase a home for as low as possible then resell it for as high as
possible.  The excitement comes in figuring out techniques to do both of these.
