Some Things You Need To Find Out About Uncovering St. Petersburg Investment Properties To Buy
Thanks to popular investing and flipping shows on networks like HGTV, FYI, and DIY, real estae investors world over are looking to get started. As very visible, active local St. Petersburg expert investors newbs, newbies ask us all the time to share our secrets.
Fortunately, we love to share 🙂
9/10, the one question that every local St. Petersburg investor has ready to ask is, ” What is the best way to discover great investment homes in St. Petersburg ?”
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 St. Petersburg investment property deals.
At Glymph Properties we recognized early on that there was no one right way to find local St. Petersburg investment properties. We find our deals on online & offline, our website www.gpsellshomes.com/investment-properties- St-Petersburg , 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 St. Petersburg 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 want to improve the quality of investment in St. Petersburg , and help to restore the prestige and reduce the stigma associated with investing. We share what we’ve learned and our philosophies in the hope of showing investors the “right way”. Basically, we are all investing in the same communities, so it makes sense to do it right.
To get the best investment properties there are only a few core tenants to understand.
One, you have to 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 nearly impossible to make a massive amount of cash in a short-term real estate deal, those come but they are 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. Learn from the past and other investors’ experience, don’t try to re-create the wheel.
It also means that if you don’t find the local investment properties you’re looking for right away… just know that this isn’t a sprint… it’s a marathon.
There’s always more than one way to “skin a cat” so when it comes to being the best St. Petersburg real estate investor you can be, having as many property sources as possible is key. Feel free to add our St. Petersburg Investment Property Buyers **List** to give yourself as many options as possible. Making money in real estate can really be boiled down to buying property at the right price… We have better than “right” prices!
This is important… Relationships are crucial. You want to find the best St. Petersburg investment properties have a great realtionship with local brokers, realtors, lenders, title companies, and investors.
I guarantee that the St. Petersburg 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 St. Petersburg market.
You may have been in the same boat as most investors and hadn’t realized this, but that’s because the key players usually work with the same people on a regular basis. Unless you have occasion to work with them chances are you’ll never get to see how lucrative their friendship can be. 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 Investing Association) and find the people who are active and talk to them. Ask them which real estate agents they use, what wholesalers in the area are active (and get their info) and let everyone you can find know that you are looking for investment properties that fit your criteria. Understanding the age old concept of “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know” can make finding the best St. Petersburg deals easy. Relationships are a key factor to getting some of the best deals on St. Petersburg investment properties before anyone else has a chance to purchase them.
Who should you form relationships with( Hopefully all the crazy symbols will really make you pay attention ;-))?

Third, identify your ideal investments.
Investing is like many other aspects of life – the people who are the most focused often succeed the most. You have to determine your niche- focus on what makes you money. Some people make millions just in raw land or store fronts.
Others focus on residential rentals, while others deal strictly with retail. Take your time… do your homework- evaluate the various segments of the St. Petersburg market to see which opportunities are really the best for you – and not just the best marketed. Once you find exactly what you want to invest in, you can develop a plan to find out who currently 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.
Last, but not least…. use TECHNOLOGY
