Why Invest In Real Estate

With record numbers of foreclosures, short sale and notice of defaults… investors around the state, around the country and around the world are asking “Why invest in real estate in Arizona?”

Almost every short sale or foreclosed seller in Arizona transitions to a single family home rental, usually at a rental rate substantially less than what they had been paying on the mortgage, or mortgages, on their “upside down” residence.

The result of this is a high demand for quality rental properties. 

"Sweet spot" Chandler buy and hold real estate

Investors are buying residential rentals for cash or financing: the return on investment for a cash purchase is substantially (especially after factoring in depreciation and expense tax write offs) and safe – most of these homes are being purchase for less than the replacement cost… or what it would cost to rebuild the same house. 

Consider these two points of view for why invest in real estate: the investor and the prospective tenant.

The investor wants:
–  Newer construction for less maintenance and repairs: 1995 and newer
–  Good location & good schools (for appreciation and resale value): East Valley of Chandler, Gilbert, Tempe, Scottsdale, parts of Mesa, Ahwatukee and possibly (for ultra bargain hunters only) Queen Creek and the city of Maricopa
–  A 3-4 bedroom, single story home, with no pool, 1500-2100 square feet (not enough rooom for a large family who will likely bring on more wear and tear)
    –  Profile renter is a single parent, single professional, or parents with 1-2 kids
–  Planned community with greenbelts, parks, schools, and possibly a community pool with a HOA fee of less than $70 per month-  Access to freeways, shopping, restaurants and large employers (Intel, Honeywell, Aerospace, etc.)
–  Return on investment (cash flow + tax benefits) of at least 8%
–  Rents in the range of $1,100 per month ++
–  3-5 year opportunity for appreciation of 2-3% per year

Prospective tenant wants:
–  Quality area (planned community with greenbelts, parks, schools, and possibly a community pool)
– Newer construction
– Possibly the opportunity for a lease to purchase to get back into the ownership game (built in buyer for you with no repairs when it comes time to sell!!!)
–  Lower monthly payment to re-build credit and their financial base/savings account

Example of “the sweet spot” Chandler buy and hold real estate: 

Subject property: Canyon Oaks planned community, built in 2001, single story, 1,842 square feet and no pool

      Purchase Price: $165,000 cash ($89.57 per square foot)
      Assume monthly rent of $1,250 (rent range of $1,100-$1,400 per month)

      Monthy expenses:
      –  Property taxes:  $113 per month
      –  Insurance:  $70 per month
      –  HOA:  $43 per month
      –  Property management:  $75 per month
      –  Maintenance & miscellaneous:  $100 per month
           –  Total Monthly Expenses:  $401

      Annual positive cash flow = $849 ($1,250-$401) x 12 months = $1o,188

      Return on investment (before tax benefits) $10,188 divided by $165,000 (purchase cost) = 6.2% ROI

Tax benefits:
Expenses:  $401 per month x 12 months = $4,812 
Depreciation expense (straight line 27.5 years) – land does not depreciate so take out 20% of the purchase price = $165,000 – $33,000 (20%) = $132,000 divided by $4,800 annual depreciation.

Annual tax benefits:
Depreciation:  $4,800
Expenses:  $4,812
Total tax benefits:  $9,612

The tax benefit will substantially increase the ROI, depending on how the investor holds the property (personally, LLC, trust, IRA, etc.).

The “multiplier effect” on this investment property is the likelihood of appreciation in the asset over a 3-5 year hold.

Investors Cash In

A recent article from Realtor® Magazine reports that the number the number of investors and international buyers taking advantage of real estate bargains has reached a record number in all-cash purchases — and some experts predict that number will only grow higher.

Across the nation, a record 33% of existing-home sales were made to cash buyers in February, the National Association of Realtors® reported. The total proportion of cash deals by real estate investors could hit 40% by year end of 2011, predicts Thomas Popik, research director for Campbell Communications in Washington, which conducts monthly surveys of 3,000 real estate brokers.

Many of these cash deals are also coming from a growing number of international buyers – Canadians and Australians making up a large part of this group. About 55% of international buyers paying cash for real estate in the US, according to an April 2010 report by NAR.

The Cash Buyer Advantage?

Cities around the US where about half of all purchases were done with cash include Detroit, Miami, Las Vegas, and Phoenix, in which prices have dropped considerably and foreclosure rates remain high, says Oliver Chang, a housing market analyst with Morgan Stanley.

In some areas of Arizona, house prices have dropped about 70% from the 2006-2007 prices.  However, specifically in the Phoenix investment real estate market, we are seeing A LOT of buyer activity and as a result most homes are selling for list price or above list price.  in March 2011, 55% of the purchase made in Phoenix were investor buyers and of that 55%, 85% were cash sales.

Short sales and foreclosures accounted for 59 percent of last year’s cash sales, according to a report by Morgan Stanley.

If you buy the house at a discount with cash, then you can either buy and hold it as a positive cash flows rental property or you could flip it almost immediately to a homeowner getting a mortgage who is interested in getting into a move in ready home.

With tightened lending standards, cash purchases can provide buyers with more leverage and allow buyers to close properties more quickly.

What is a brand new remodel?

What is a “brand new” remodeled home?

There’s a lot of ugly houses that Arizona real estate investors are picking up for good deals, fixing them up to really nice, current market standarss and making them really beautiful homes – essentially brand new.  There are brand new remodeled homes in all areas of Phoenix, all price ranges and all different types of homes.

This is a remodeled Phoenix kitchen.

A lot of buyers like the idea of buying a brand new home versus one that someone else has lived in, a resale home, but with prices where they are right now in our market it might make more sense to purchase a resale home.  A lot of times you can’t build a home in Phoenix right now for what you can buy a discounted property for.

Most of the brand new builds are on the outskirts of town… so you have the choice of buying a brand new home and having a little further commute to things around town or purchasing a home in town that’s closer to whatever it is that you’re interested in being closer to!

If you want to see some of my investor clients brand new remodels or any other remodels around town, call Jason Dawson The Rehab Agent at 480.620.8874 or send us an email.

Bank Owned Homes In Gilbert AZ

I had a client ask me a question about buying bank owned homes in Gilbert AZ today that was worthy of sharing!

“When a bank has a lender owned property in their inventory and reduces the asking price, how likely are they to want to ‘dump’ it and take a low offer? I don’t understand a lot about the lender owned homes work and how they operate.” 

Bank Owned Gilbert AZ Homes

That’s a great question and one that I get a lot with my investors looking for a smoking deal!

This is a great property, it’s in the very nice Vintage Ranch subdivision… however, it doesn’t have all the flashy upgrades that most of the other homes in the neighborhood has… no granite, no new paint and carpet, no fancy tile or wood floors – so it may sit on the market for a little while.  Vintage Ranch subdivision is a very classy neighborhood near Gilbert and Pecos with great school districts and a lot of homes in the $275k-$500k range that 5 years ago were selling over $6ook!  

So my response to her was this, and hopefully this helps answer a question for you too when you’re looking to buy a bank owned home in Gilbert AZ.

“It depends… obviously the bank is trying to get as much for it as possible to recoup their loss on the foreclosure – but they also don’t want a house on their hands, they want the money to lend. There’s two things that “scar” the banks when selling homes, days that its on the market and also the sales price vs. the BPO (Brokers Price Opinion), which is the mini-appraisal done by the listing agent to come up with the value and listing price.

So with these Gilbert AZ bank owned homes, and any others for that matter, I think its a great idea to submit a lower offer and see where their “breaking point” is, find out what they’re willing to come down to so you feel like you’re getting a great deal and where they’ll unload one of their bank owned properties . If you submitted an offer for $290k (current list price of $335k) they’ll either counter (more than likely what they would do) or they would reject or just not respond. But if they counter and they’re still willing to give you a good deal – then you’ve got a choice of taking their offer, countering again to try and get it lower or just passing and walking away!” 

With the great selection of Vintage Ranch Gilbert homes for sale and Gilbert AZ bank owned properties that we have right now, as an investor buyer or a buyer looking for a primary residence – you can afford to be picky on homes that need a little TLC and updating… but make sure you get your offers in quickly before another buyer or investor comes along and snatches it up before you do!

If you’d like more information about bank owned homes in Gilbert AZ, call me at 480.620.8874 or use the contact us page to send me an email!

Purchasing Investment Fixer Upper Homes With Only 10% Down Payment

Fixer upper home loans

You can purchase Chandler and Gilbert real estate investment fixer upper homes with as little as 10% down payment on Fannie Mae properties with the current special by HomePath mortgage.

Arizona real estate investment is a great way to make extra income or run as a primary business and Fannie Mae is making it even easier right now.  Most real estate investment loans require you to put 20%-25% money down to purchase a  property – with HomePath financing they are allowing you to purchase fixer upper homes for half that!  Current interest rates allow you to purchase investment properties at 4.75-5.00% 30 year fixed rates – making long-term holding a great option with positive cash flow on Chandler rental investments.
Clink on the link to see all the Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale and Tempe Fannie Mae properties that fit this criteria.

Chandler Fannie Mae Home For Sale

Not only that, if you’re looking to purchase a primary residence that requires home renovation and maybe home repair loans, you can also look into Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale and Tempe Fannie Mae properties because they offer the 203k Rehab Loan where you can get up to $35,000 towards home renovation on appliances, flooring, paint, lights and most work that goes into making a home move in ready.  They offer 3.5% down payment and current 30 year fixed interest rates in the low 4.00% range for qualified buyers.  This is a great way to pick up a Chandler home for sale that might need a little work for a great deal!
For more information on Fannie Mae, Homepath Financing and 203k rehab loans visit http://www.fanniemae.com/homepath/financing/index.jhtml.
One thing to be aware of if you’re planning to do a fix and flip home is that Fannie Mae will put a deed restriction on the house for 90 days and not allow you to sell it for more than 120% of the purchase price.  So if you want to wholesale a Fannie Mae home and just mark up your great deal that is okay, but if you buy the fixer upper house to put money into it and mark it up to make a profit, beware that you may have to wait 90 days.  Rental properties are obviously long-term hold properties so they’re fine as well.

Auction Company to Sell 600 Chandler, Gilbert and other AZ homes

A real estate auction house will put 600 foreclosed Chandler, Gilbert and other discounted Arizona homes on the block November 9-14th.

The discounted Arizona properties, located in Chandler, Gilbert, metro-Phoenix, Tuscon and Kingman are valued from $59,000 to $1.6 million.

Phoenix home sales dropped 29.5% in August from the average monthly total, according to MDA DataQuick. Prices there have dropped 50.8% below the peak in July 2006 to $130,000 as of August.

Such a fall, Hudson &Marshall – the auction company – said this will offer great deals for Chandler real estate investors and even owner-occupants.  Whether you’re an investor cash buyer or wanting to finance a new Gilbert home, all buyers will have to have a cash or certified check of $2,500 to deposit down for each property they are the winning bidder on.  From there, all of the sales will be closed within 30 and 45 days.  You can check our website for all discounted East Valley properties as well.

“In today’s bruised housing market, it’s a good time for people to buy. First time homebuyers or those with looking to trade up for more space can really get more for their money by purchasing homes at auction,” said Dave Webb, principal at H&M.

This company will allow out-of-town buyers to bid online.  Gilbert real estate investors and other buyers are encouraged to seek a Realtor to represent them in the purchase and to help with the due diligence previous to making their bids.
