|No Substantive Talks Between Cardinals Jason Heyward On Extension - RealGM Wiretap
The St. Louis Cardinals and Jason Heyward have yet to engage in "substantive talks" regarding a contract extension Arik Armstead Rush Jersey , according to the outfielder.
The Cardinals haven't been aggressive in talks, which is how Heyward would prefer it.
"At this point, I think both sides are OK with that, OK with where things are right now," Heyward told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "Both sides want to make sure everybody is happy. That's really what they've been asking me about the whole time. 'Hey, you like it here? Hey, you comfortable?' They want to make sure I feel at home, make sure I can be myself, and that's been their focus. They've allowed me the time to fit in. That has meant a lot."
锘? Youve heard that investing in real estate can be very lucrative. Before you get started, here are seven questions to ask yourself.
1. Is this a hobby or a business?
Ask yourself why you want to invest in real estate.
Do you want another income stream
Do you want to build equity in a house
How many sellers and buyers do you want to speak with each dayweekmonth
How much time do you have to invest in real estate
Are you working a full time job
Are you retired looking for additional income
What do you want to do with your time?
If you want to build a real estate investing business, then you need to treat it like a business.
Are you going to be a landlord? Then you need to determine how much time you want to spend collecting rent, maintaining the property Eli Harold Rush Jersey , making repairs, answering tenant calls late at night, etc.
Or have a property management company handle the tenants and maintenance? Then you need to determine who you will hire to manage your property and how much you will pay them. Typically a property management company will charge one months rent to locate a tenant and then charge 8 10 of the monthly rent for collecting the rent and answering all calls from the tenant. You still need to set aside a reserve fund for maintenance.
Maybe you dont want to be a landlord and you want to wholesale property. Then you need to develop a buyers list of buyers who have the cash to purchase the house. You will still need to work with sellers to locate properties, get it under contract. You then need to get your wholesale buyer to sign the assignment of contract. And you have to make sure you follow up with the closing agent to make sure the deal is funded by the wholesale buyer and the deal closes. You will get your assignment fee once the deal closes.
Here are the questions you need to ask yourself.
Do you want to be a landlord
How much time do you want to put into real estate investing
Do you want to build a business or just make some extra money once in a while
2. Do you want to work directly with sellers?
There are many investors who want to get into the real estate investing business who don t have prior sales experience. Yes, you can call homeowners directly and negotiate the purchase of their home, it is possible. Its even easier when you are speaking with a motivated seller. I mean a seller that is really motivated to sell, not someone who wants to sell, wants full price for their home and just doesnt want to wait for the all cash buyer that will pay retail price.
Are you someone that wants to help these motivated sellers? Do you have it in you to hear their stories over and over? Some of these sellers will break your heart and you will want to help them. You have to make sure that you only work with those that you can help and make a profit for yourself. Just because someone is willing to deed you their house does not mean it is a good deal.
Think about a situation where the seller has two mortgages, judgments, and liens on the property. Yes, you can work this as a short sale and get the liens removed and negotiate with the lender to get a smaller settlement for the payoff of the mortgage. You need to decide if you want to put in the time and effort it takes to negotiate the short sale and get the liens removed. I have seen investors in the short sale negotiation process with the lender for anywhere from 2 months to 18 months. Do you want wait months to close the deal?
You need to decide if you want to work directly with homeowners or have someone handle this for you.
3. Do you want to work directly with buyers?
Once you have a house under contract, it is time for you to find your buyer. The best thing you can do is to build a buyers list before you have a property. Find out where the buyers want to live Phil Dawson Rush Jersey , and then go find a house in that area. It is much easier to find a house for a buyer than it is to find a buyer for a house.
Do you want to take calls from the buyers? They call at all hours, while you are having dinner, before you wake up in the morning, when you are driving to work, etc. Are you willing to drop everything you are doing to take a call from a buyer?
4. Where are you going to get the money?
This is one of the biggest concerns of all real estate investors, where to get the money.
Yes, you can buy a house with little of your own money. Some of the techniques to do this are:
Buy the house subject to the existing mortgage
Have the seller carryback the financing in the form of a note
LeaseOption the house
You can also build relationships with other people who have money, such as
Hard Money Lenders
The biggest money concern that you never hear about is where to get the money to market your business. You can buy a house subject to the existing mortgage. But how do you find that house? You have to continue to MARKET, MARKET, MARKET.
