If you are considering investing in real estate, you’ve likely done a little digging on the internet to determine if now is a good time to buy. Looking at those online articles from time to time, I’ve noticed that the answer is always “Yes”—and always “No.” The people who say “Yes” tout the idea that the real estate market always rises. The people who say “No” suggest that real estate moves in cycles and that the real estate “boom” is over, leaving the market in a correction that is likely to last for some time.
So, which is it?
While it is true that real estate moves in cycles, it is also true that real estate rarely loses value. So, even during the worst of the real estate crash, smart real estate investors were able to find great deals and make a profit.
Though some advisers are still suggesting that real estate is “down,” actual numbers show that real estate investments are rising. In fact, the average profit from flipping a house is now $62,000 nationally, with some cities reporting flipping averages over $100,000. With averages like this, the answer appears to be a resounding “YES!”
The average time it takes to flip a home is four to six months. What would it be like if you could flip one home every six months at a profit of $62,000? How would an extra $100,000+ a year look as a financial investment? How much better would it look if you learned you didn’t need much of your own money to get started? And finally, what would you think if you learned that you don’t have to complete one flip before starting another, increasing your yearly profits even further?
Rather than put your money into a risky stock market or something safe like CDs that are carrying a low interest, you can invest in real estate flipping and produce large profits. If you are an investor who wants to increase margins, maximize profits and minimize risks, then house flipping is an investment vehicle you should consider.
