Visitors: 332

At A-K Real Estate, Samer Kuraishi along with Richard Balles, will help you find great deals; not good deals, but great deals with plenty of equity, cash flow and multiple exit strategies. These types of deals can withstand mistakes, surprises and worst case scenarios such as the recent bust, where home values dropped approximately 40% in some areas and financing became extremely tight.

Here are 5 things as suggested by Samer Kuraishi, to make sure of before purchasing investment real estate.

1. Purchase at Max 70% LTV – According to Samer Kuraishi, total cost of purchase, fees and any repairs must be a maximum of 70% of the current market value of the property. To do this you must get a lot of deals in your pipeline and cherry pick only the best ones. It is a numbers game. In some areas you can find deals at 50-60% LTV.

2. Rents are 1% of purchase – Samer Kuraishi also suggests that, a property that rents for $1000/mth should be purchased for no more than $100,000, or rents are 1% of purchase. In some areas you can find great cash flow by purchasing where rents are 1.5-3% . If you are interested in purchasing a property to rent, Samer Kuraishi at A-K Real Estate has hundreds of listings that are at your disposal.

3. Have multiple exit strategies – Our Mr. Richard Balles at A-K Financial, our partner company, provides many different options that you can view with a specialist.
