When is the best time to invest in real estate? What if I don’t know how to manage properties?

The obvious answer would be 30 years ago. Thus a 30 year mortgage would now be paid off and you’d have a cash flowing investment free and clear.
So what if you were tied up a bid 30 years ago or maybe you were only 5 years old. Well the answer for you my friend is NOW.
The Wall Street Journal is predicting a 3.4% rise in home values in 2013. Standard and Poor’s is predicting 5%! We always recommend buying for income and not appreciation however 4% on a $200,000 home is $8,000 or 8 LARGE to those of you in the money business. If you’re holding out waiting for a better scenario it’s not going to happen. Now is the time to solidify your financial future. Put 20% – 25% down as required by your lender. Get a 15 year mortgage with approx. a 4% interest rate on an assumable loan and laugh your way to closer to retirement each time you repeat this process.
