Hello and welcome! I am going to take these first few articles and talk about real estate. In this particular post, I will discuss FSBO’s along with some other real estate niches. FSBO’s or “for sale by owner” houses are houses that are sold without a Realtor being involved. I am in no way going to knock Realtors in these posts because there are some really good real estate agents out there. They have helped a lot of people and they have also made a good living for themselves doing it. And I think that is only fair.
Understanding that, there are time when using a Realtor wouldn’t be your best move. There are times when a real estate agent is limited by what he or she is conventionally taught when it comes to buying and selling real estate. Or the brokerage that they have their license under can also limit what an agent can do for you. Trust me on this one…I used to be a Realtor.
We will discuss different routes you can take when selling your home or just finding a niche within real estate that you can use and make a business out of. To be honest with you, there are so many wells to buy and sells houses. You have lease options, which are rent to own houses. You have fixer uppers that you can buy for cheap and then turn around and sell for cheap, keeping a nifty little profit in your pockets. That is called wholesaling. You could purchase a beat down house and make it pretty again and flip it for even larger profits. You can even buy a house subject to an existing loan that is in place on the house. The list goes on and we plan on diving into this list head first to give you some good knowledge on the subject of buying and selling real estate.
Make sure that you check back regularly to get more inside information in the world of house buying and selling. If you have the bug to get into this industry you should fit right in and we invite you to go ahead and make yourself at home. I hope you have enjoyed our brief intro and we look forward to bringing you more relevant content in many days to come.
