Hello and welcome to my website, HarrisRealEstateInvestments.com  

I am Candace Harris and I want to say thank you for dropping by.

If you are looking for a way to get an above-average return on investment (R.O.I.), backed by a solid asset (real estate), and without the typical challenges of being a landlord, you’ve definitely come to the right place!

Please take a few minutes to explore my website, watch my short explanatory videos and see what it is that I do here at HarrisRealEstateInvestments.com.

I believe that real estate investing, done properly and in an educated, logical manner, is the best investment available for the average person.

However, if it were actually easy, everyone would be doing it!

Here are a few of the challenges prospective investors face:

  • How to learn all the in’s and out’s of investing in properties.
  • Finding the right market to invest in (and the right time to invest).
  • Choosing right investing strategy and the appropriate kinds of properties to buy.
  • Creating a solid, experienced and effective real estate POWER TEAM.
  • Managing the deal during acquisition, managing the property during the deal, and coming up with a profitably and timely exit strategy

Fortunately for my investors, my team and I take care of all of this. It’s what I like to call a “Hands-Free Investment” for them.

If you aren’t already on my prospective investor contact list, you are welcome to join us and be the first to know when I have exciting and profitable investment opportunities available. Just put your contact information in the box at the right of the screen, and I will also give you access to a short video called “Why Real Estate is An Exceptional Way To Invest“.

And if you are ready to find out more about my investment program, I invite you to contact me directly, and I will be happy to show you exactly how it works, either in person, by phone, or on-line.

Again, welcome to the site, and I look forward to talking with you personally.

Blog #23: Banks Love Financing This…

Things cost you what they cost, right? That much seems obvious. If you want to buy 1000 dollars worth of stock, you’re putting 1000 of your own dollars out of your own pocket into that investment. There’s no getting around it- stocks, bonds, mutual funds, gold… whatever your investment is, you’re going to have to pay what the market asks of you.

Except, that’s not the case with real estate. When you purchase a property, a bank will typically finance between 75 and 85 percent of the cost. Your responsibility is only for the remaining percentage, which you put in as a down payment. And yet, 100 percent of the investment (the property) is under your control.

A bank would laugh in your face if you asked them to cover 85 percent of the cost of a few ounces of gold. But if your investment is in real estate, they’re singing a different tune. If you have good credit and are able to make that 15-25 percent down payment, the bank will cover it.

Banks love helping people invest in real estate, and that’s a fantastic thing for investors. By having a bank finance the vast majority of the cost of the investment, investors can minimize the amount of money they have to put into the deal. From there on out, they see all the profits from the property. And remember, real estate has many profit centers!

There are so many possibilities at every step of the way, from the leverage and instant equity we can find when you initially purchase the property, to the profits we make from renting out units, to the value the property gains, all the way out to the potential for reinvesting the money you’ve made off of a property. That’s the great versatility of real estate, and it all begins with making that initial investment.

The simple fact that a bank will be willing to finance an enormous part of the cost of a real estate investment, while still allowing the investor to reap all the rewards, is part of the reason real estate is such a great choice. With the help of a bank, investors can minimize how much of their own money they have to spend, while maximizing what they’re able to make in profit. You don’t have to dump all of your own money into the transaction- the bank can help make it happen. What’s not to love about that?

Blog #22: Loving Leverage

For more investments, you have no choice but to pay the market price for whatever it is you’re buying. If an ounce of gold costs 1900 dollars, you pay 1900 dollars. You put in the asking price, and that’s that. It makes sense, it’s reasonable- but it’s not the smartest way to turn a profit on your investment. Wouldn’t it be neat if you could find someone else to help you pay for the investment you’re making, while still allowing you to keep 100% of the profit earned?

With real estate, that’s possible. Leverage is when you use borrowed capital in order to increase the potential return on an investment. In practice, this typically looks like borrowing money from a bank in order to purchase a property.

Banks will typically cover 75-85% of the cost of a property, and you make a down payment for the remainder. This limits the amount of money you have to invest in the first place, which is nifty, but what’s really nifty is what you’ll experience as your property appreciates value.

Properties can naturally gain value over the course of time. Say you purchase a property valued at 500,000 dollars, and the bank finances 80% of that. You’ve put 100,000 dollars into that property, with the rest covered by the bank. And let’s say that then, the property appreciates by 5% or 25,000 dollars. It may seem at first glance that you’ve made a 5% profit on that investment, but that’s not actually the case! You get to keep 100% of the appreciated value- AKA, profit!- from that property, but the amount of money you paid remains the same.

With that in mind, you didn’t make 25,000 on a 500,000 dollar investment. You made 25,000 on a 100,000 investment. That is a 25% profit, and that’s great.

In this way, you can use leverage to turn a nice profit. By utilizing the resources that banks have to offer, you can maximize your financial gain and make the most of your money.

Blog #21: Buying for Bargains

When you make a profit, you want to hold on to as much of it as you can. You earned it, it’s yours, and you want it to stay yours! But that’s not how it goes. A certain amount of every dollar you make in your life goes towards taxes. It’s unavoidable. So, it’s a good idea to consider ways to make the most of your profits. You want to not only make as much as you can, but also keep as much as you can.

You may be asking yourself, what kind of investment could possibly change the reality of capital gains taxes? Aren’t all investments subject to the same rates, the same drawbacks?

Here’s the thing: they’re not. While capital gains from stocks, bonds, and mutual funds are taxed at a pretty much universal rate, gains from real estate are taxed differently. If you buy a piece of property and sell it for a profit (because you bought it at a discount, or because it appreciated in value, or for some other reason), you will only be taxed on half of the money you made. This is because, in theory, the property should have lost value over the course of time. However, that’s often not the case. It’s entirely possible to resell real estate at a gain, as with any other investment. What makes real estate great is that you have to give up much less in taxes

Those tax savings mean more money in your pocket. There are so many things about real estate that make it a smart investment- the many profit centers it offers, the potential for excellent financing from banks, etc.- but one of the best parts is that you get the chance to actually keep more of your money. That, along with everything else, is great for investors. Real estate investments are an excellent way to build a prosperous future for yourself. Protect your interests by investing in property- you won’t regret it.
