Overview

Foreclosures are among the hottest real estate investments in the country and a launching pad for many a real estate fortune. But most investors don't know that there are even more great moneymaking opportunities in abandoned properties. This is the only book available that focuses solely on this increasingly popular form of investing. Packed with information and insight readers will find nowhere else, this one-of-a-kind guide shows investors how to find abandoned properties, write an irresistible offer, acquire the title, find new buyers, and turn a maximum profit at resale.

People abandon their homes for a variety of reasons—from financial distress to natural disasters. Their homes might be a financial burden to them, but they're a possible goldmine for savvy real estate investors. In Make Money in Abandoned Properties, you'll learn how to help struggling owners out of their financial burden while helping yourself to a healthy profit.

Plenty of real estate guides focus on foreclosures, but this is the only one that exclusively covers the abandoned property market. It offers a proven and effective system for investing, including tips on writing offers that owners can't refuse. Inside you'll find handy tools and tips, as well as unbeatable guidance like: Ten tips for finding abandoned properties; five techniques for locating owners; five keys to the foolproof offer; and four ways to obtain financing. More than that, you'll use less of your own money when you learn how to finance your purchases after you make a deal with the owners.

If you want to get into the lucrative world of real estate and start making money now, this is the book for you. From finding the right properties, to negotiating with owners, to renovating and reselling, to getting out of deals that start to go South, this guide covers everything you need to know about investing in abandoned properties. With handy worksheets, charts, and samplecontracts, Make Money in Abandoned Properties is more than just a guide to investing, it's a tool you'll use every time you make a deal.
