Beginning Real Estate Investing 101

Best option for beginners in real estate.

As many beginning investors have little credit and their cash stash, if used would barely get them through until next payday! With that in mind you would want to take on something which is simple and can produce the most profits with little to no investment. The smartest most logical path you could take to get started investing in real estate would be wholesaling.

Wholesaling? What's that?

As A wholesaler you position is easy! Find a particular type of property that buyers/investors are looking for. Simple right? Why yes, yes it is........ Once located you just pass the new found deal onto your buyer/investor. Basically all you are doing is acting as the middle man or a bird dog (plus a few steps) type. With this type of investing you can make upwards of 10k from each and every deal you do, depending on the type of deal you uncover. With nothing more than time invested in these deals how can you go wrong!!!!

Why this method?

The wholesaling way has numerous reasons why you should start with it.

1) Low to no investment.

a. No need to own the property you are dealing on.

b. Just locate a undervalued property.

c. No need to take ownership of the property, just get it under contract and pass the deal on to the best buyer/investor, with what is called an assignment fee (up to K) added on to the negotiated price.

2) Fast and almost immediate cash.

a. Most all wholesale deals close in 45 days or less.

b. No need to wait for rents or long drawn out closings.

c. Quick was to get started and get cash in your pocket immediately.

3) Once you're good at finding deals.

a. Benefit from quick closing and cashing out.

b. Keep in mind not every deal you find will you be able to put under contract and sell.

c. Even if you can't buy it personally you can put it under contract and negotiate it with a buyer.

d. Do as many deals as possible to become a pro!!!

4) Options.

a. Wholesaling gives you options unlike any other investment vehicle out there,

b. You find it, negotiate with seller. Then decide what direction you will go with it, keep it, and or sell it, whatever you want. Where else do you have options like that?

VIOLA!!!!!!!!!!- Quick cash or long term cash flow.....you decide.

This is what makes wholesaling Grrrrrrrrrreat!!!!

Shed Roof Design: Five Roof Options for Your Shed

Choosing the Right Shed Roof

Now that you've finally decided to build a shed. You know what type of foundation you want plus you've decided want you want for the walls and windows. Your final decision is what kind of roof do you want. What kind of shed roof design is ideal for your shed? When you've finished reading this article you'll have a good grasp on the subject.

Lean-To Roof

A lean-to roof has no peak and is a single plane the slants downward from the rear of the shed to the front. Lean-to sheds are constructed so that the rear wall of the shed is also the side of a building or fence. Because of this construction the roof is only single flat surface. If you don't need a large shed or if don't have the room for anything large than you may wish to consider the lean-to shed. The angle of the lean-to roof should be sufficient so that snow and rain easily fall off.

Gable Roof

The gable style shed roof construction has a peak and two sides. The two equal sides of the gable roof form a triangle with top of the end wall as a base. The gable roof can have a pitch from 20 to 70 degrees. The gable roof is probably the least expensive and easiest to build. The steep slopes of this type of shed roof design allow snow, rain, and leaves to slough off the surface easily.

Gambrel Roof

The gambrel roof design also known as the barn roof consists of a peak and two sides configured with two different angles. The gambrel roof differs from the gable roof in that there are two angles of pitch on each side. It has a similar appearance to a bell when viewed from the end. This type of roof design strongly resembles that of a barn. Many people find the gambrel roof design as the best choice for their shed due to its pleasing configuration and ability to provide for increased overhead storage.

Hip Roof

The hip roof is essentially the same a gable roof but rather than having two sides it has four. It consists of four sloping sides that angle away from the peak. The roof is quite stylish. So, if you have an eye for aesthetics, you will love this type of roof. One negative aspect to this type of roof design is that there is not much room for overhead storage. So, if you are looking to build a roof with extra storage space, this would not be a good choice for you. It is frequently seen as a pool house or cabana where a great amount storage space is not required.

Saltbox Roof

The saltbox roof is constructed in a similar way as a gable roof with a peak and two sides. The big difference between the saltbox design and the gable roof is that the roof sides are of unequal length and size where one is short and steep and the other is long and flat. The longer side provides plenty of headroom. One of the big advantages of this type of roof is its ability to stand up to strong winds. So, if you happen to live in a windy area, this type of roof is a good choice for you.

In summary, you'll need to give some thoughtful consideration to the type of roof you want for your shed as it will have a major impact in the overall look and functionality of the structure. You can view the various designs discussed in this article at shed pictures.
