Hidden Savings Secrets

Today’s interest rates are at their lowest levels. Home prices are more affordable today than they were in the entire past decade.

Owning a home is often less expensive than renting – even without looking at the biggest hidden secret to savings.

In fact, tax savings and benefits are often unknown to new and prospective home owners. Let me explain. When you pay mortgage interest on your primary residence rather than rent, you get to deduct these expenses on your tax return.

Claim More Exemptions Immediately

But not only that! Even as you move in to your own home, you get to claim more exemptions with your employer immediately. That means you will see an immediate increase in your monthly take-home pay, because less tax will be withheld from your monthly paycheck.

If you account properly for the tax savings, owning a home can cost up to 30% less than renting, and sometimes your savings can be even greater.

It Makes Sense to Own

The “Power of Ownership” and being able to do what you want in your own home without having to ask your landlord are just two great benefits. Add to that the actual savings through tax benefits, principal pay-down and low interest rates, and you will agree that it does not make sense to keep renting.

Two Truths About Closing Deals

Obviously everything we do as investors is geared towards closing deals. It’s obvious because if a deal doesn’t close, the money isn’t made.

So we’ve got to close deals right?

Right.

But here’s one insight that, if you pay attention, will save you much grief.

When it comes to closing a deal there’s no magic bullet, there’s no perfect script. No deal is ever the same because, in real estate, you’re dancing with people, and everybody is unique.

So the two truths that you must understand when you enter into negotiations are these:

Not every prospect is going to result in a deal.

In fact most properties under negotiations won’t turn into deals. So accept it, and don’t make the mistake of trying to turn a jalopy into a Ferrari. It’s not going to happen, you will lose.

If the seller is not motivated enough, it’s not a deal.

The seller’s motivation is the one thing that will make or break your deal. If they’re not motivated, you’re paying full price, and paying full price is not recommended in this game (if your entire investment strategy depends on appreciation, you’re gambling, don’t do that).

So, if there’s no motivation, there’s no deal. It’s simple, it’s straightforward, and it’s the truth.

When you understand and accept the fact that most prospects will not be deals, and that every deal is a directly tied to the seller’s motivation, you’ll save yourself a lot of future frustration.

Obviously these truths are imperative when you’re going about doing all the groundwork yourself. But here we do the heavy lifting for you – no jalopies, and high motivation. Contact us today to get priority access to the properties we have available.
