Experienced and novice real estate investors can turn profits

California real estate investors and regular savers may be able to help each other out by avoiding people in the middle. An investor has several typical options. One is a long-term rental mortgage. A passive investor might fund a mortgage in this case. Another is a wholesaling investor purchase-to-sale. This requires funding to purchase the property for a short time until the close. The third is fix and flip investing in which the purchase price and the rehab cost must be funded.

A potential passive investor is the traditional saver who has low returns on safe investments. They may be looking for higher returns in investments that are still relatively safe.

A saver and an experienced investor may meet at a real estate investment club. The saver may be able to offer an experienced investor a loan at a better rate than could be obtained from a traditional lender. In turn, the saver receives much higher returns than they are accustomed to, and both come out with a higher profit.

Whether a person is an experienced real estate investor or a first-time investor, the assistance of an attorney may be advisable. A real estate investment is a significant step, and an attorney may be able to assist with a number of aspects of the process including contracts. A first-time buyer or investor is likely to be familiar with many things about the industry while even an experienced investor is unlikely to be a legal expert. Some of these aspects might range from escrow issues to easements to disclosure documents, and an attorney can also be of assistance if litigation is necessary.
