  I love stats on county appraisals. They help me identify which properties on the MLS are the best investment properties. As I work with investors, they are amazed at what I find.For example, there are two properties I found that are $50,500 and $64, 400 below county appraisal! I have over 100 properties on my spreadsheet that are below county appraisal.There is one single family listing that is $11,800 below county appraisal that has a positive cash flow as is but could be petitioned to become a duplex and have about $800 or more cash flow per month. The home already has separate entrances for each side of the duplex.One investor had me recently put in an offer for $35,000 on a home that when fixed up would sell for over double that or would be a wonderful rental.But being below count...

In a nutshell, we still have a buyer's market in the Douglas County area but it is much better than last year when during June to August we had a tremendous number of homes go on the market.With 492 homes sold in Douglas County in the past 6 months and 877 homes currently on the market, we have 10.8 months of inventory of homes. 6 months is considered balanced and below 6 months becomes a seller's market.In Lawrence we have had 420 homes sold in the past 6 months and 696 homes currently on the market, which means we have 10 months of inventory of homes. Lawrence remains the best marketplace in the county for the seller.In Baldwin we have had 15 homes sold in the past 6 months and 59 homes currently on the market, which means we have 2 years of inventory of homes. Best market for the buy...

Eudora Kansas Real Estate Investors: Wouldn't you like to know the rental income, when leases expire, and who pays the utilities of the investment property you have selected without having to call a Realtor? Well, I have made that information available on my http://www.MoveToEudora.com/ website.After all, how can you calculate your cash on cash return or your capitalization rate without having an idea of what your income and expenses are going to be for utilities?  When I teach my investors' classes, we go through a worksheet that investors love where everything is taken into consideration: financing costs, net operating income, expenses, depreciation, etc.When the investors finish taking my class, they are able to "run the numbers" themselves by going to the http://www.MoveToEudora.com...

I received an email this evening from someone in Spearfish SD wanting some photos of a home in Lawrence Kansas.  I emailed back and let her know I would get them tomorrow after I get the combo for the lockbox from the listing agent.  The request could have just as well been for Eudora Kansas Real Estate or Baldwin Kansas Real Estate.In the mean time, I sent her the feature sheet, the county appraisal card for the property, a block analysis of the appraised prices of the homes on the block, the block analysis of the features of the other homes on the block, and the building material quality.  I also sent her links to my http://www.movetolawrence.com/ website where other MLS feature sheets are available for Lawrence Kansas Real Estate, Eudora Kansas Real Estate, and Baldwin Kansas Real Es...

You go to a bank and tell them you need a loan to buy a car. What's the first thing they want to do? That's right! They pull your credit report. Why do they do that? The answer most people give here, if the bank doesn't know you personally, is "to see if you qualify for the loan".You may be surprised to learn that this isn't the real reason because almost everyone can qualify for some type of a car loan. The main reason is to find out your credit score.Your credit score determines where the interest rate for your car loan will be. If you have a high credit score you will have a low interest rate and vice versa.Therefore, it is in everyone's best interest to improve your credit score to the highest possible level. So you go to the internet and type in to Google the phrase how to improve ...
