B. Online networking opportunities through an active message board. This means you have a place to go and ask a question to the group and get multiple responses in between meeting times.

Before you decide to look for real estate invesment property, I would like to ask you a question: “Where do you want to live?” The best place to start looking is in the area you live or want to live.

What’s a seller to do? One of the newest ways to get laser-targeted traffic to your offer to sell is through the Internet. Having your own locally specific listing appear in the big search engines can create a flood of interested buyers calling and scheduling appointments to view your FSBO real estate. Even better, you can compete directly with MLS and real estate brokers on a level playing field.

Air conditioning and heating repairs can be costly, especially if you have to replace defective or worn conduits. Try to patch isolated holes carefully with duct tape. And replace old filters, to give the air a cleaner, fresher smell.

The state has a lot to offer from the beautiful climate all year long to great scenic views. The median price home in Bend Oregon is 2,000 and that’s after the 16% correction that it had this past year. In 2003 the same homes were going for 5,000, which means that the value of that home has increased by 50%, better than what is going on in the rest of the country. If by chance you bought it as an investment and had rented it out for the price of an average price rental in the area, you would have brought in roughly ,000. Investments like that are not something you find every day, but in Oregon it’s much more likely to happen.

In case your lawn looks weedy and lifeless, you must edge it as soon as possible. You can animate it through planting different plants that are suitable to the size as well as to the designs of your property. Otherwise, your buyers will surely lose interest to see your property.

Let’s recap what a traditional realtor sale encompasses so we can then compare it to private property sales. First, you would ideally interview 3-5 realtor agents to make sure you are comfortable with one that understands both your individual needs (fast cash, minimum net, short sale, etc.) as well as your neighborhood. Then you sign your exclusive listing agreement and your realtor starts marketing your property through, ideally, all potential outlets to find a buyer. This includes listing the property on the local MLS (multiple listing service), posting a sign out front, advertising in the local paper and, of course, everywhere possible online: business page, social media sites (Facebook and Twitter), perhaps a YouTube video walkthrough and more.
