How to find a good investment property in Houston to acquire

Lots of investors are looking to get started, and as active real estate experts in Houston , we get asked to share our secrets quite a bit.

Fortunately, we love to share 🙂

One of the most popular questions we get from local investors is “How to find good quality investment propert in Houston ?”

 

Since the turn around of the housing market and the near disappearance of foreclosure deals, investors are having to become more creative in their hunt for quality local Houston investment property deals.

At Glymph Properties we recognized early on that there is no one right way to find local Houston investment properties. We find our deals on online & offline, our website www.gpsellshomes.com/investment-properties- Houston , classified posting sites, traditional letters/postcards, and from “bird dogs” (acquisition agents).

 

The info below will walk you through some of the things you can do to find great Houston investment properties to add to your portfolio.

Most investors don’t share their “secrets” because they see everyone as opponents and are afraid that they’ll be used against them by competitors.

That’s not how we work. Working together with other investors allows us to do things we can’t do along.

 

We share our learning and our philosophies here because we want to improve the quality of investment in Houston to build stronger communities. Ultimately, we are all investing in the same communities, so it makes sense to do it right.

 

There’s a few core principles that are important to understand if you want to get the best investment property deals.

 

First, think long term.

Real estate isn’t like the stock market. It’s where people live, work and play – not just numbers on a screen. It’s practically impossible to make a crazy amount of cash in a short-term real estate deal, those come few and far between.

People have been investing in real estate since the dawn of time, so don’t expect that your “new” approach is going to blow the competition away. Sorry to bust your bubble, but chances are that it’s been tried before and there’s a reason it’s not that prevalent. Thinking long-term means learning from the past to better anticipate the future.

Also, realize that real estate investing is a marathon not a sprint. Being successful as a real estate investor means being steadfast, stubborn, and patient. Don’t be in a hurry to conquer the investing world- It’s going to take time, but if you stick with it you can be as successful as you’d like.

That’s why it’s a great idea to find several sources of properties that fit your criteria (like our Houston Investment Property Buyers List >> ) so you have a heavier flow of great deals to look at.

 

Second, focus on relationships.

I guarantee that the Houston investment world is so much smaller than you think.

Most investors don’t realize that there are really only a handful of major wholesalers, brokers, and investors who conduct most of the business in the Houston market.

 

They’re used to working with the same people on a regular basis. Trust me when I say this… It’s well worth your time and effort to identify them. If you can… Learn From Them, Work With Them. Make yourself useful- bring them a good opportunity and let them reciprocate. Once you develop a good network, they’ll become your best source of high ROI deals.

How do you form a relationship with them? Go to your local REIA ( Real Estate Investors Association) and find the people who are active and talk to them. Ask the most active folks there which good ( by good I mean actually have deals priced at wholesale vs retail- there’s a huge difference)wholesalers in Houston are active- get their info- and make sure to find out which realtors, and title companies they work with. As a matter of fact- let anyone you meet at the REIA know that you are looking to buy Houston investment properties that fit your criteria- you never know who your next deal is likely to come from. Understanding the age old concept of “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know” can make finding the best Houston deals easy. Relationships are a key factor to getting some of the best deals on Houston investment properties before anyone else has a chance to purchase them.

 

Who should you get to know( Hopefully all the random symbols will really make you pay attention ;-))?

 

$$$ A few of the top investment friendly real estate brokers in Houston $$$

$$$Real estate appraisers who work with properties similar to your ideal properties$$$

$$$The top few property wholesalers in the area$$$

$$$The top handful of property rehabbers / flippers in the area$$$

$$$Title agents that deal with investment properties quite a lot$$$

Third, identify your target investments.

Investing in Houston is the same as investing in any other city on the planet, you have to be focused. You have to determine your niche- focus on what makes you money. Some people make millions just in raw land or store fronts.

Others concentrate on residential rentals, while others deal strictly with retail. If you take the time to do your homework, you can review the different segments of the Houston market to see which opportunities are truly the best for you – and not just the best marketed. Once you find exactly what you want to own, you can create a plan to find out who owns it and make sure that they know to call you when they want to sell that property.

This takes a good deal of work, but it’s a tried-and-true method for creating long-term wealth.

 

Finally – use technology.

Sign up for our list of exclusive properties, and we’ll tell you instantly when we find a great investment. Glymph Properties frequently sources investment properties for deep discounts, secure them and then sell them for a discounted rate to the people on our list who are ready, willing and able to invest. There’s other ways to get notified about properties on the open market – you should get familiar with searching the mls with the rest of the herd, because every once in a blue moon a great deal shows up.

 

We don’t even look at anything remotely average – we only pass along great deals to our partner investors. We’re not real estate brokers, and our business is a niche within Houston .
