Bargains You too can make serious Money from Property"
Dear Reader, The secret to making astounding
profits from property is to buy dirt cheap. It's as easy
and simple as that. And there's a small group of informed
people around the country who know this. They're quietly
and confidently making shocking amounts of money by buying
property at rock-bottom prices and smoothly selling on.
Naturally enough, they avoid the traditional estate agent
route. They ignore the newspaper small-ads too, and concentrate
their time and energy where they know they'll get the best
deal - at auction. Typically, they're able to buy at a 30%
discount on similar properties advertised in estate agent's
Now, 30% off the cost of a new fridge is not going to change
anyone's life, a saving of maybe £150. However, 30%
off the average property is about £20,000. Buy and
sell two or three properties a year, which is extremely
easy to do, and ... well, you can do the sums yourself.
Needless to say, there's big money to be made for very little
effort. Indeed, one major property auctioneer reports lots
selling for 45% of their present market value, and deeper
discounts than that are quite frankly, not unusual.
Of course you don't have to trade in property to
benefit. You may be looking purely to buy a home
in which to live, or maybe a second home to rent out for
some extra income. That's just fine. Through Property Auction
News you can find a great place for a silly price and either
pocket the saving, or raise your expectations and buy a
bigger and better property than youever thought you'd be
able to afford. Now that's an exciting prospect!
But do you want to know the really exciting thing about
property auctions? It's the trading potential ... the ability
to consistently make overwhelming gains over and over again.
Who knows, the bug may bite? Having experienced property
auctions and all they have to offer first-hand, you may
like to start dealing part-time, buying one property at
a time at an outrageous discount from auction and quickly
selling on at a realistic market price. It's easily done.
It happens all the time. It's lucrative and the whole process,
as a short-term investment strategy, is a particularly low
risk exercise. Very low risk.
Then ... who knows? You might enjoy the process (and the
proceeds!) so much, it just might develop into a more formal
enterprise. Maybe simply a side-line or even a flourishing
full-time business. It gets people like that. It's not just
profitable, it's great fun!
But the most wonderful aspect about buying bargain properties
(and land, of course) from auction is that your investment
can double, treble even, the very moment the hammer comes
down. BANG! What other investment/hobby/pastime, call it
what you will, offers such tremendous rewards in such a
short space of time?
Exciting ... Rewarding ... Fun .. Low Risk
But Why Buy Property From Auction?
Because of the sheer simplicity of the process, the variety
and choice of stock on offer and the speed of the whole
endeavour. It simply makes good business sense.
Forget the conventional approach to property ownership...the
go-between estate agents taking their pound of flesh, the
counter offers, the waiting, the gazzumping, deposits, the
lengthy time it takes to exchange contracts and complete
the deal. In fact, trying to make money from property using
conventional methods is a real lottery. Profit margins are
tiny, sometimes non-existent, and it may take years waiting
for a property to increase in value. The only sensible,
sure-fire way to make substantial capital gains fast is
to buy cheaply and then sell on again at just under the
market rate (which you can afford to do since you will buy
at such a discount).
