Real Estate Newsletter – May 2019

Thoughts from Diana

I just returned from Europe, including Greece, and I took away two things: Real Estate or Property ownership hasn’t changed much in thousands of years, and those old buildings can be cool and worth saving.

This month, Gary does a fantastic job of sharing with us information regarding buying Historic Properties. This is a niche market that can certainly have an upside profit potential if you know what you are doing.

I share an article written in 2017 regarding hot renovation ideas and green projects. All still very applicable to modern rehab projects.

Hearing the news of the fire and devastation of Notre Dame Cathedral, I was at first shocked and then deeply concerned as was the rest of the world. This historic and storied building hosts 30,000 visitors per day according to up-to-date news reports. However, while I’ve been to Paris, I have never visited Notre Dame de Paris, as it is also known. Missing that opportunity was on my mind daily and I started thinking about landmark and historic properties. Of course, nothing on the scale of this 800-year-old landmark, but historic homes and buildings in general.

Really, what is Fixing and Flipping? Well, if we believed the TV shows – it should be easy to fix and flip a property with just a little unexpected drama. Fix and Flip, in my opinion and experience, has the biggest upside potential for an investor who wants sizable profits in the short term. With large profit potential comes risk, and the need for a strategic plan. It is also important to have insight into current trends and the hot things homeowners are looking for.
