Up to this point, the discussion has centered on three real estate investing strategies, Subject-To, Retailing, and Foreclosures. In this article, we are continuing our pursuit of the best investing strategy for the beginning investor.

In my opinion, the new investor will do best using an investing strategy that will allow him to enter the market easier, without the necessity to acquire complicated knowledge that takes to much time to implement. This is our goal, which brings us to the next strategy in our discussion, the buy and hold strategy. Read the rest of this entry

In this article, we are continuing our series toward the discovery of The Beginners Best Investing Strategy For Success. In the past two articles, we have discussed the Subject-To and Retailing investing methods.

In this article, the discussion will center on the Foreclosure market. This strategy in particular, due to the current state of the economy has the attention of not only the investing community, but the general population as well.

What the new investor should keep in mind is where is the best place for him to start. In my previous article, Cash Poor Real Estate Investing, we took the first step on our investing journey.

Now, we are ready for the next step. It is not so much of a question of preference, but how can the new investor enter the market with the best chance of success. What I want to do is to take the list above and through the process of elimination discuss the listed strategies and point out the positives and negatives of each.  Read the rest of this entry
