Los Angeles, California (PressExposure) July 29, 2009 -- Jon Swire, author and creator of the program Thereâs No Free Lunch In Real Estate, will be speaking at the NAR EXPO in San Diego on November 15, 2009. His program, titled Turning Homeowners Into Investors: Earn More Commissions with 2-4 Unit Properties, teaches residential real agents how they can earn more commissions with their existing client base as well as develop a new line of business selling 2-4 unit income properties.
Amid the tumultuous real estate market today there is one bright spot to be found. The opportunity for Homeowners to start investing. With interest rates still near historic lows and prices back down to 2002 and below levels in most places, now is a great time to consider investing in real estate. And with most pundits predicting rapid inflation over the next few years, an investment in real estate provides the perfect hedge because the rental income one collects will grow over time if for no other reason than inflation. And while your income is growing the single largest monthly expense borne by investors, their mortgage payment, will remain constant and fixed at todayâs low interest rates.
The real question is where investors turn for sage advice on how to take advantage of these opportunities. Swire has written a book and created a program to do just that. As a practicing commercial real estate agent for Coldwell Banker he is currently speaking to groups around the country on how to Turn Homeowners Into Investors. The key he says is to identify the right opportunities and make sure the property you buy makes sense today as well as tomorrow. âThe biggest reason most investors got in trouble over the past few years and ended up âupside downâ was because they invested in assets that didnât cash flow or debt coverâ says Swire, who preaches that any investment you make must generate enough rental income to cover all your expenses as well as your mortgage and leave a little cash flow left over for you each and every month.
âThe fact is that tremendous opportunities exist around the country to start investing. Now is the time to take advantage of todayâs low prices and interest rates to create the foundation of your future wealth.â You can learn more about his program by visiting http://www.TheresNoFreeLunchInRealEstate.com .
