It used to be that home-ownership was a part of the American dream.  Home-buyers would scour for properties that suit their needs whether it was for their growing family or for a second home.
But the global economic slump that has plagued the real estate market has created a major shift on the housing landscape.

What is a Short Sale?

You may have heard the term “short sale” and wondered what it referred to – and what kind of opportunities these types of transactions offer in the real estate market. Let’s define a short sale first.

A short sale can occur when a home owner’s debt on a property is greater than the amount for which the property can be sold. The result – lenders are sometimes willing to accept less than the total amount due on the house if the economic situation dictates such an action.

Here’s where the term “short sale” came from: Assume a homeowner has an unpaid loan balance of $200,000, but the property will only sell for $150,000. The lender accepts that $150,000 as full payment. This is “short” of the full $200,000 amount.

Real Estate Investors Can Profit in a Down MarketOne of the most exciting things about being a real estate investor is knowing what markets will produce the greatest long-term returns – especially while in the middle of a challenging housing market.

In a down market, savvy real estate investors are eager to find out how they can best leverage their resources. And expert forecasts are some of the best tools they can use to back up their strategies. A good example comes from real estate consulting firm John Burns Real Estate (JBRE), which has recently predicted that homeownership will fall from 70.0 percent to 62.1 percent by 2015 due to a weak economy, weak consumer confidence, limited mortgage availability, higher rates of foreclosures and short sales, and other factors.

How to Handle Bad TenantsBad tenants are a landlord’s worst nightmare. Between not paying their rent, trashing your rental property, allowing pest infestations, committing criminal acts in the property and a hundred other miserable acts, bad tenants can make a landlord’s life miserable. Fortunately, there are tactics you can employ to minimize the damage caused by bad tenants.

First Line of Defense: An Airtight Lease Agreement

Before you allow a tenant to move into your property, you can lay the groundwork for addressing future problems by using an airtight lease agreement. Every state has different landlord-tenant laws governing what your lease agreement can contain, so be sure to use a state-specific lease agreement. Sometimes they can be obtained through your state’s website, but more likely you’ll have to buy one online.

How to Value Investment Property

Identifying your property’s value is crucial. As a real estate investor, you need to be aware of the three ways to determine the value of your real estate investments to guide you with your purchase, justify your selling price, or simply learn the basic market valuation techniques.

Sales Comparables

The most popular method is sales comparables or more formally known as comparative market analysis. In this method, sales information about properties that were sold within the last three to six months as well as those that comprise the list of pending sales in the neighborhood are compared.

The Asset Class of Single Family Real Estate

If there’s one thing that Morgan Stanley would like to advise to you, it’s to take a look at single-family homes and consider it as part of your real estate investing strategy.

That’s right, these properties have become hot among real estate investors for the past months considering the shift in the US property market from home ownership to rentals (or as Morgan Stanley puts it, a “renter-heavy society”). It’s exactly the new real estate paradigm!  Even Bank of America and the Federal Housing Finance Agency have sought measures to reduce the impact of mortgage delinquency by working on an REO rental program for its underwater borrowers.

Jobs, jobs, jobs! That’s what we’ll hear from now on through the 2012 election, and rightly so. Although they claim otherwise, Wall Street and the Big Banks are not the essential, indispensable, must-be-bailed-out part of the national economy: it’s people with jobs.  Those people account for 70 percent of the economy (the government is 20 percent).

As we’ve already seen, those people aren’t spending very much money these days, needing no more time-share condos, full-size SUVs, leather furniture, and flat-screen TVs. Which means there are fewer jobs for the people who were making those things a few years ago.

The national economy grew at a modest annual rate of 1.3 percent in the second quarter of this year, better than the 0.4 percent of the first quarter, but there is some cause for anxiety: personal spending was flat in the second quarter, after growing between 2 and 3 percent in 2010.

Will this situation improve or get worse? It will improve, but slowly.  The machinations of Wall Street and the perils of budget cutting and the debt ceiling fortunately have nothing to do with the basic desire of people to buy goods and services. The evidence suggests strongly that personal spending will rise. And once consumers again feel comfortable with their credit card balances (probably next year), they’ll start to spend at an accelerating clip, which in turn will mean even more jobs.

The evidence to back up all this easy talk lies in the job statistics for June. Overall, jobs were up just 1 percent over last year, but two things were especially important. Retail jobs were up 1 percent, a very good indicator because stores don’t hire if people aren’t buying; 1 percent is the best growth in four years. The other important indicator is temporary jobs, down 40 percent in the recession as companies quickly cut them, but rebounding 27 percent in the last two years. These jobs are the canary in the coal mine (even small amounts of methane gas will kill them) and they keep growing.

The economy will keep growing.  But slowly, at least for this year.
