On Wednesday, President Trump announced his administration will be suspending all FHA supported home-loan foreclosures and evictions until the end of April due to the coronavirus outbreak.

“The Department of Housing and Urban Development is providing immediate relief to renters and homeowners by suspending all foreclosures and evictions until the end of April,” Trump said. “So, we’re working very closely with Dr. Ben Carson and everybody from HUD.”

Homeowners with loans backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (which make up about 1/2 of the countries mortgages) will be granted foreclosure relief.

“Today’s actions will allow households who have an FHA-insured mortgage to meet the challenges of COVID-19 without fear of losing their homes, and help steady market concerns,” Secretary Ben Carson said in the statement, adding the move “will provide homeowners with some peace of mind during these trying times.”

Additional efforts to boost the economy have been made, such as the GOP senators working towards a stimulus plan. The stimulus package, which could possibly be $1 trillion, should be larger than the 2008 bank bailout (totaling $787 billion). 

It is still unsure to what degree the coronavirus will impact the housing economy, but in the meantime, you can prepare yourself and your investments, by diversifying your portfolio to industries that can withstand economic downturns.

It can be bittersweet…  you and your family are grieving your Grandfather or Aunt, and you find out they kindly left you with an inheritance. We see it in movies time and time again, someone is the heir to their relatives will and it feels sort of like they won the lottery. If you are considering spending your new large sum of cash on luxurious items like boats, cars and expensive vacations you should re-evaluate your decisions. Focus your finances in places that will give you returns down the road. We have provided 3 smart strategies to grow your inheritance, so you can make decisions that will positively impact you and your family in the future.

1. Talk to a professional

The most important step is talking to a professional. You do not want to invest into something you are not educated about. By talking to someone in a specific industry you can have all your questions answered to ensure you make less mistakes. If you are seeking a professional and not sure where to begin, we have team members that can give you ideas on successful investment strategies. Contact us here for more information.

2. Learn ways to diversify your portfolio

Step 01. Build a portfolio:

Investing your money is the only sure way you can let it grow. You can invest into IRA’s, stocks, bonds… which are all popular ways of investing. However, it would be most beneficial to invest in an industry with a proven higher ROI. Did you know investing into notes has 20-40% ROI? 

Step 02. Diversify your portfolio:

Once you have a portfolio built up, you should strongly consider diversifying your portfolio. During 2008, many traditional real estate investors were devistated when the housing bubble popped. Around this same time, the note industry actually had one of its most profitable years yet. Consider investing into asset classes that rock through recessions.

3. Choose long-term goals

During the past 20 years, REITS have outperformed all other asset classes (like oil, stocks and bonds, gold, etc.) by offering the largest ROI. What does this mean for you? 1. REIT’s are consistent, 2. REIT’s are a great long-term play.

Another way to invest in long term plays would be investing into re-performing notes. When you purchase a note, you are purchasing the debt to a home and you now become the bank. With a re-performing note the homeowner is paying you their monthly mortgage payment for the duration of the loan… sometimes for 10, 20, or even 30+ years. Every month you would receive passive income with minimal effort on your part.

While it can be tempting to spend your new inheritance on items that are more luxurious, it is much more beneficial to you and your family to create opportunities that will set you up for a more successful future.

To receive the largest ROI, we tell our customers time and time again that you need to get out of your comfort zone and start investing outside of your own backyard. For example, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac sold $22.2 billion in Non Peforming Notes during the first half of 2019. Nearly half of these loans were located in New Jersey, New York, and Florida. If you live in any of the other 47 states right now there is ample opportunity for investing nationally.

But, what is the secret to managing nation real estate investments? How does an investor manage their assets while sitting at their home enjoying their morning coffee?

We have the essential guide to managing national real estate investment:

1. Educate yourself on the area: Do your research and find local realtors. Nobody will know an area better than the professionals who are constantly learning home prices and fluctuations in a local economy. By speaking with a professional you can get a good understanding of the investments, local prices/comps, local economic situations, etc.

2. Find local service providers: To carry on the actual management of your investment properties, you will need to find reliable contractors. Electricians, plumbers, or even painters and HVAC contractors are essential in maintaining the upkeep of a home ensuring you keep your home value as high as possible. One of the benefits our customers receive when they purchase real estate investment properties with us is a list of servicing companies who work nationally, so you can contact one company to handle all your property management needs.

3. Automate financial collection efforts: If you are the owner of a re-performing distressed note, it will be beneficial to automate your monthly mortgage collection efforts. A note servicer plays a very important role in managing your assets. By hiring a note servicing company you can delegate the time-consuming tasks to them…. such as debt collection, loan modifications, foreclosure proceedings, etc. They worry about the heavy lifting, and you can worry about more important tasks. We have list of servicers who can handle any financial collection efforts at your direction.

Managing out of state investments does not have to be daunting or unattainable. Setting up a network of reliable resources will help your investments run on autopilot, ensuring your real estate investment properties are well managed.

The end of the year marks an important threshold. 2019 brought forth significant growth and success. While you should embrace the positive changes which took place during the past year, it is important to examine the flaws in our investment strategies. In what areas can you improve to maximize your returns and ultimately grow your investments?

Using the new year as a chance to make financial resolutions is an important factor to reevaluate your overall goals.

During 2020, consider these 10 New Years resolutions for investors, so you can get the most value for your money.

10 New Years Resolutions for Investors

1. Set a goal to diversify your portfolio

Many of our clients have all their eggs in one basket, the real estate industry. Maybe they have a handful of fix-and-flip properties that they are rehabbing and seeking to sell for a greater return in due time. The problem we see time and time again is when you have all your investments tied up with an unstable industry, you increase your chance of getting hit hard in the event of a recession or economic fall. By diversifying your portfolio you can start incorporating investments that potentially thrive in an economic decline. Note investors had some of the most profitable years during the 2008 recession as it is not necessarily dependent on a thriving economy. Note investing also provides higher ROI’s than traditional real estate investing AND less hands on involvement. Your portfolio will love you for making the switch.

2. Set a goal to reduce overhead expenses

Reducing the “middle-men” as part an investment purchase will reduce the unnecessary expenses and fees associated with that investment. A specific example is purchasing bank direct distressed mortgages. The further you are removed from the bank that originated the delinquent mortgage, essentially the higher the price point you will be paying for the note. The more is has been circulated around the marketplace means there are more companies that have their arms wrapped around the files. Being able to get yourself closest to the bank selling loans, delinquent loans, or even re-performing loans will allow you to capture a wholesale price point – or as close to a wholesale price point as possible. At Revolve Capital Group, we purchase bank direct distressed mortgages directly from Top Tier 1 banks and sell these same loans to our investors.

3. Set a goal to increase profitability

All investors have (or should have) a goal to increase their profits, because why else do we invest if not to grow our profits? We focus on key services that ultimately help our current and potential clients grow their portfolios. We offer bank direct assets acquired directly from Tier 1 Banks, provide access to national vendors so our investors can successfully manage their own nation-wide portfolios from the comfort fo their home/office, and include completed due diligence for each loan at no additional cost. While there are many firms you can invest with, the key services each company has to offer are what will increase your overall profitability.

4. Set a goal to establish a long-term strategy

The fact is, most investment categories offer few exit strategies which lacks diversity in crafting a detailed and strategic play. Investing in notes provides several exit-options so you can fine-tune a plan that fits your immediate, short-term and long-term goals. Are you seeking a passive income stream? Do you prefer quick capital growth? Would you like to circulate your investments? These are questions you can ask yourself to establish a goal and satisfy your investment criteria. When you purchase notes, you become the “bank”, and the sky is the limit because you do not have traditional or expected rules to follow allowing utilization of a creative personalized approach.

5. Set a goal to create a passive income streams

The majority of our clients were previously landlords. Like those clients, most landlords choose that income stream because of the monthly residual passive profits that trickle into the bank account. However, with those benefits also comes much risk. You are legally bound to providing a healthy living environment for your renters, you are required to have your property insured, you take the late-night phone calls that the water heater is broken, you communicate with the tenant as to why they were unable to pay utilities that month, you are on the hook for property taxes, etc. We prefer taking a much less hands-on approach, by choosing to act as the “lienlord” instead. Being a leinlord allows you to take on investments that you can own for the next 30 years while the homeowner continually makes payments, but all the property condition concerns fall on the shoulders of the homeowner. Because you are now “the bank” you can control the terms and interest rates, and by utilizing a national vendor you can remove yourself from the majority of those responsibilities and you can focus on your monthly passive income.

6. Set a goal to stop wasting time

Mark Cuban is a self made billionaire. If anybody knows the value of time, it’s him. Cuban himself stated “I can make things happen more quickly by paying a little bit more, and that’s important, because time is the one asset you can’t own, buy or get back.” Money can buy you anything, except time. It is the one thing you cannot buy. If you want to grow your investments, you need to stop wasting time on tasks you can delegate to firms and professionals. Simply put, having an extended nationwide network of vendors allows you to scale your business, increase your profit margin and become a more passive investor. It is beneficial to familiarize yourself with what roll the servicer plays in managing your assets, so you can feel comfortable focusing on other aspects of your business.

7. Set a goal to increase ROI

If you watch shows like Million Dollar Listing or Flip or Flop, you might notice investors paying .80 or .90 cents on the dollar for their investment properties, which comes with all the glitz and the glamour.
Instead, you could learn to purchase deals we are selling nationwide on a consistent basis for .50 or .60 cents on the dollar. For example, we just had a deal worth $140,000 and it’s on the market now for $90,000. That’s .60 cents on the dollar. Why would you go out and pay $120,000 or $130,000 for that exact same property?
Our question is… What is your ROI?

8. Set a goal to get educated

Any entrepreneur will tell you that knowledge is power. By educating yourself you can set yourself up for success and growth in any area you desire. To start educating yourself, look no further than our blog page. Our blogs are geared towards investors seeking extended education, and we consistently post to make sure you are as well informed as possible. Our aim is to stay up to speed on market trends that will be pivotal to continue expanding your portfolio. Another key factor in getting educated is by attending seminars. We frequently sponsor industry leading conferences that provide opportunity for continuing professional education. The next conference we will be speaking at is the IMN NPL Notes Servicing Forum, East in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

9. Set a goal to expand your social network

Typically a persons comfort level starts and ends with those they know and trust. A closed network limits our exposure to people who can offer new connections and ideas. A strong network supports and advocates for you, and allows you to maximize opportunity. By networking with other investors/vendors/firms you can earn trust and create a long-standing relationship. We understand how important these relationships are, and we offer key services that provide the foundation of a long term business partnership. Transparency, consistency of product, safe purchases, clean collateral and post-close asset management are all important building blocks for our client relationships. Each stage of the process, from product selection through post-close, we work with you every step of the way. By creating a long-term relationship, we ensure success for you and us both.

10. Set a goal to market your real estate investments

At the present time, it has never been easier to expand your reach allowing thousands, if not millions, of eyes to see your available inventory. Connect with new and willing buyers, increase exposure and market your properties by utilizing digital technologies. Announcing an investment opportunity for sale has never been easier than now thanks to the wonderful world of social media.

Fortunately for you, the same ecosystems we have in place for our company is offered to our investors which ensure the goals are realistic and completely doable. By incorporating the above 10 New Years resolutions for investors into your 2020 goals you can make it your most successful year yet.
