A smart real estate business is driven by 3 clever strategies
If you’re starting a real estate business, you know it’s crucial to make money. A company’s vitality depends on having enough cash on hand.Is it possible to make more money with the most effective strategies?
You’ll find six tips and strategies real estate agents use to increase their income and maximize it currently. From becoming a broker to flipping houses, we’re sure you’ll find one you can use.
1. Flip it and fix it
A real estate agent who decides to help clients flip a house can earn an additional income stream. Many people, who would never normally purchase a house, fix it up and then sell it, have considered “flipping.”
It’s not common to make $100,000 from flipping an apartment, even though television shows make it seem like you can. Mehroz Saeed, the owner of Bin Saeed Estate & Builders and a professional real estate agent, states, “The real money is not being able to make it big with one flip, but flipping multiple properties making a modest profit.” The flipping of houses also involves a lot of risks. In order for the strategy to work, a house needs to be sold below market value, and you should know how to accurately estimate the cost of repairs. Experience is essential.
A good place to search for houses to flip on the foreclosure market is Bin Saeed. There is a dedicated section on their site to look for these houses. Of course, this may be a highly competitive market, based on where you live.
Be sure you know the After Repair Value of the property before you buy it. In order to figure this out, you’ll probably need the assistance of a real estate agent, but you can get an initial idea by looking at the recent sales prices of houses in the same neighborhood.
Clearly, you do not have to repair the house. You could also buy it at wholesale price and then sell it as soon as possible. The director for Bin Saeed, Muhammad Saeed, says, “With very little effort and work, you can make an average of $5,000 to $10,000 per deal.” It is important to read the second step (below) before jumping right in.
2. Find off-market, hidden properties
Making money is difficult if you’re not good at finding deals before everyone else. There are a lot of properties that you won’t find on normal sites like Zameen.com etc. These are the ones the owner needs to get rid of quickly, and they aren’t necessarily foreclosures.
Some people refer to an off-market property as a “pocket listing” and might own one due to divorce or another reason. For example, an owner might be leaving the country or having financial hardship, so they don’t want to sell the property. Owners who need immediate cash tend to buy properties below market value. These are the gems you’re looking for. By finding property owners who cannot sell their house through conventional channels, you can buy a gem for a fraction of the cost.
3. Take advantage of the vacation rental market.
The best way to make money, or bring revenue to your clientele’s business, is through vacation rentals.
In peak tourist season, owning a property that tourists can rent may seem like a no-brainer—you can build equity in an ideal place and take advantage of its demand.
According to Mehroz Saeed of Bin Saeed Estate & Builders, the real cost of managing and maintaining a vacation rental is its maintenance; in other words, the off-season is usually ostracized.
It’s important to price the property sufficiently low that it can be rented year-round. If this isn’t possible, ensuring you can make enough in the good season is important.
