Real Estate Investing – Are You buying at the Year-end Clearance Sale?

The end of the year can be the best time to buy real estate investments if you know where to look, have the money lined up, and are prepared.  Like last minute Christmas sales, real estate also goes on sale at the end of the year.  Banks try to get troubled assets off their balance sheets before the New Year brings new regulator visits. Private investors want to cash-in on their investments before new tax regulations coming in 2013 take a bigger chunk of their profits.  Sellers can be especially motivated if you can close quickly and help them solve their potential problem. 

Big opportunities come to those who are prepared and can manage the challenges that will be presented.  The key to buying real estate investments at big discounts is being prepared when the opportunity presents itself.  While you can find some amazing deals at the end of the year, most of opportunities come with a “string attached”.  That “string” is being able to close by the end of the calendar year, which in some instances can be only a few weeks.  The discount purchasing opportunity exists because of the short timing window (must be closed by the end of the year), but it can also present some real challenges.

It’s not enough to just find the opportunity, you must perform.  The opportunity will be lost, and your potential profits, if you can’t get it closed.  In order to take advantage of the big discounted deals you need to do the following things in advance:

The end of the year and holiday season can be one of the best times to find and buy deeply discounted real estate investments.  If you are prepared, have your money and team in place, and are ready to move quickly, you can do deals in a matter of weeks that will pay you for years to come.  Nothing is better than closing a deal on December 31st and toasting New Year’s in the office of your new investment property knowing you just made a lot of money.  Be prepared and make the end of the year, the start of your future investing career.
