Real estate is considered one of the safest long term investments you can make, and it helps diversify your portfolio!  Whether you are a first time buyer or a savvy investor, buying a home in any state is usually considered a good investment. 

The government statistics show that the NATIONAL AVERAGE of the value of real estate across the board from Boston, Massachusetts all the way to Orange County, California, has never went down in value.  Sure, certain areas have their ups and downs, but that is the nature of real estate.  If you invest for the long term, you'll always come out ahead. 

Anyone who wants to invest in a second home, business, or a multi-unit property needs to master the following philosophy:

Learn to Leverage – You can leverage the equity in your first home, and purchase another home, whether it is a rental or a retirement. Now for investment purposes we would suggest it be a rental property... This allows you the ability to have someone else pay off your mortgage for you :) 

After the market appreciates on your first or second home, you can continue to leverage your equity in each property to acquire another. By doing this you are taking no money out of pocket, and you are using leverage from your current property (or properties) to buy others.  The more real estate you can acquire without taking cash out of your other investments, the better.

These philosophies are explained in great detail in two of our favorite books:  "The Automatic Millionaire Homeowner," by David Bach; and "Real Estate Riches" by Dolf de Roos.  (Email us and we'll give you a copy.  Yes, GIVE)  If you're local to Orange County, you can go get a FREE dinner or consultation on the subject by one of our trusted Orange County lenders, Derek Beisner, and our absolute favorite financial advisor, William Jordan. 

There are people who make a lot of money off of flipping, selling, and 1031 exchanging real estate when done correctly.  Remember that its always easier to work with a professional than go it alone.  You may be surprised when we suggest that you keep your property, lease it out, and still buy that new home.  We want to remind you the wealthiest people in America have KEPT their property, and use it to buy MORE property.  If you need help planning to do the same, simply contact us today and we'll set the wheels in motion!
