M. Jane Garvey - The Best Strategies for Success in Today’s Market
Like any other investment, real estate markets respond to pressures from the following:
* Interest Rates
* The Economy
* Supply and Demand
* As well as many other forces
As investors we need to learn to pay attention to the marketplace and adapt our strategies. Today’s market is offering some of the most incredible opportunities I have seen in 30 years of investing. Some of the opportunities are coming in the way of bargain prices. Many people are taking advantage of these by buying short sales, foreclosures and bank owned properties. While this feeding frenzy is going on, other segments of the market have been cast to the sidelines and tremendous opportunities await the savvy investor.
Jane will share some keys to the kingdom that are useful in any market, but are critical in today’s market. For instance: buying right so that you can weather the storm, financing when “none is available”, going in with multiple exit strategies, ensuring positive cash flow, rehabbing right for the market, targeting the right customer, and structuring the right financing.
Today’s market is offering a unique opportunity. Our Milwaukee REIA meeting on August 11th is too. Read Jane’s bio below and you will find an industry leader with a vast and varied background.
