We’ve all heard that patience is a virtue, and it’s also really nice when good things happen fast: that goes double for your finances and investments. It’s important to understand that making a profit can take time, and it’s also sensible to make an investment that will instantly increase your net worth. This is not the case for stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. Those types of investments require that you wait out whatever market forces are at play. Even then, there’s no guarantee.
An investment that you’re able to buy at less than its market value? That’s a smart way to go. When you make that investing choice, you’re automatically making money simply by owning it. Once again, that’s not going to happen with stocks or, indeed, most investments. However a stock is priced, that is what you are going to pay.
Real estate, however, isn’t necessarily like that. People sell their properties for less than their market value all the time! It may seem like an odd choice for them to make, but it starts to make sense when you dig a little deeper. There are plenty of reasons a person would want to liquidate a property quickly rather than wait for top dollar. These reasons are simply a matter of needing money fast such as going through a divorce, company transfer, moving out of the country, medical diagnosis, inheritance, dealing with an emotional or financial crisis.
Regardless of why a seller wants to sell, there are always opportunities to buy property at a discount. This scenario creates one of the many profit centers of real estate, called Equity Day One, also known as Instant Equity. You’ve already increased your net worth when the appraised value of the property is more than the acquisition value. Think of it as a kind of safety net.
Real estate is one of the only markets where instant equity is even possible. It is one of the few markets where the price of an investment is negotiable. Such is the case with our latest investment offering. By buying into properties at a discount, you make money without even having to do anything. What’s not to love about that?
