We are well into 2012 and the market is changing fast. The savviest investors know that they need to take into consideration the importance of accounting for seasons when planning their acquisition and marketing strategies and tactics. Are yours positioning you to win in the coming months?
Summer is Coming
Distressed property and notes may be everyone’s focus right now, but making the right acquisition and marketing moves over the next few weeks will make all the difference between being one of the year’s biggest winners and being stuck at home on the weekend reading about others’ success.
Summer brings a huge spike in home buying with families scrambling to sell, buy, and move before school starts again. This means the wise investor will be planning a big marketing push at the beginning of summer and loading up on family homes to flip. Of course, vacation destinations ought to see a lot of interest too, making studios and condos easy deals to turn over to emotional on-the-spot buyers.
2012 End of the Year Distressed Property and Note Opportunities
Fall, of course, is likely to see a slowdown from the summer surge, but smart investors will know just how to take this in stride.
This is time for reorganizing and setting up a new marketing splash ahead of the December holiday season and final end-of-year rush.
Distressed property and notes will again see a spike in action as the holidays approach. Small units will be popular with first-time home buyers gifting themselves a new pad for Christmas, while trendy upscale condos and estates will also be popular with the more affluent crowd, especially those flush with year-end bonuses.
Notes will become especially appealing to those who need to maximize IRA contributions before the end of the year and those who realize how poorly they have done at tax planning. Capitalize on this.
