5 SMART TIPS FROM A REAL ESTATE INVESTOR



The day was May 23, 2016. Ogbes & Co. Crew visited a real estate mogul in his residence in the Government Residential Area(GRA). His company name is Patifin Nigeria Limited. If you are a residence at Ugbighoko quarters, Upper Ekenwan Road, you surely must be familiar with that name. He has a big property where his construction company was formerly located. To this day, his property and name is a landmark in that area.

As we walked into his sitting room, an elderly man with a white cap and T-shirt was relaxing on a sofa. I was excited to meet him. He offered us a seat and ordered  drinks for the four of us. We had an animated discussion with him. Among others, here are some of the lessons I gleaned from his rise to fortune:
1.      Develop a business acumen: just like a journalist with sharpened senses to detect newsworthy items, anyone that must excel in real estate must have a well tuned  up nostril to sniff up investment opportunities. If you see a property, you should be able to know whether it will make a good investment or not.
2.      Forecast future property value: don’t just put your money in any kind of property. Instead, invest in property that  has a high potential for appreciation. If your choice is right the property must increase in value say by 50% or 100% within 2 years or so. For instance, if you bought the property for 1million naira, a 50% increase will amount to 1.5million naira. That is extra 500,000 without lifting a pin. Sometimes the increase could be 100%. To achieve this, you need to know areas where the value of properties will skyrocket within a short time.
3.      Have a revolving capital or cash in hand: this cash should be for emergency purchase only. Close to the end of every year, many individuals run helter skelter to pay up their debt. Pressed for money, some who have property put it up for sale. Here, the investor exploits the opportunity to buy up the property with his strong bargaining power to drive the price down.
4.      Do not resell your property under pressure: as a rule, you get more value for your property when you are not in a hurry to sell. Buyers will dance to your tune if possible
5.      Protect or secure your property: make sure you have the right title documents to ward off intruders or greedy land speculators.
In fact, so much to learn within one hour of our visit to the real estate tycoon. To crown it all, he emphasized that these were the principles that brought him success. As we rose to leave, he enjoined us to work hard and achieve success.

  11. The rise in the number of homeowners who are underwater on their mortgages has increased so much that a very large number of them have decided that they cannot afford to stay in their homes. They would rather sell their home and buy a comparable home for a much lower price, and take the loss so that they can improve their cash flow situation by having a lower mortgage payment each month. And since there is no shortage of properties to buy, these people had no problem finding a suitable home for a good price. And another result of the rise in available properties is that more and more people are becoming first-time homeowners. Since prices on homes are falling, more and more people are able to afford a home for the same amount they are currently paying in rent. So the logical choice for these people is to buy a house rather than continuing to rent. These factors all lead to one thing - a higher need for real estate agents to help the buying and selling of all of these properties. Therefore, even though prices have fallen, the quantity of available properties, buyers, and sellers has raised which more than makes up for the lower prices in terms of how much a given real estate agent could make in the current real estate market. And as we all know, the more clients a real estate agent has, the more properties they'll sell and the more money they'll make. upper east side condos for sale

  15. What a year to be in real estate! I think I am one of the last Realtors left! The last 18 months have seen an exodus of real estate agents from the business, and the ones who remain are truly the ones you want to be working with. This is a professional's market, and now more than ever, you need a great Realtor to help you with your real estate needs. But what is in store for real estate in 2010? Rent Ajman one Tower
