Are You Using Leverage To Grow?

By Shayne Bowen

Are You Using Real Estate Leverage To Your Advantage?

I Hope You Have A Great Year! / I Hope You Grow!

Are you using your current investment real estate property(s) to your best advantage? Are you using real estate leverage to your best advantage?

Are you aware of how much real estate values have risen in Sonoma County over the last few years (it’s extraordinary!!)?

Have you done the relatively simple math required to run the numbers to use some of your accumulated equity to control more real estate, and experience significant financial growth? Wouldn’t it be simple to let someone of my extensive background and personal involvement with investment real estate help you with these numbers?

Do you know how easy it is to experience significant financial growth by investing a portion of the major equity growth that has occurred over the last several years here?

Is it wise to allow large amounts of equity, a large capital resource, sit relatively idle, when you could grow and invest it in more investment property, or exchange into another property to achieve important financial goals (easier management, getting your property closer to you, getting greater tax savings via a higher depreciation base, getting your property into a better neighborhood, owning a new property that has greater appreciation potential, owning a multi-unit property that is a much more effective income generator)?

Does it make sense to fail to do something this easy, considering that your real estate holdings, with very few exceptions, will mean more to your financial future and your family than all of the 401K’s in the world?

Isn’t it worth a few hours of your time to use the accumulated equity from your current investment real estate to make a significant step forward toward greater financial prosperity, and stronger financial security for you and your family?


Do These Steps!

1. Call me. Discuss your goals, define what you want and what you would like to achieve.

2. Ask me to create a written plan to achieve your plans.

3. Take action – do the written plan.

Give me a call. I’d love to serve you and have an ongoing business relationship as you grow and progress.

I Own It – I don’t Just Sell It!

I’m different – I not only sell real estate, I own it in significant volume! I’ve been there – I know the issues, I know how to grow, and I have personally experienced the tremendous benefits of real estate ownership. Because of this personal involvement, and because I own the product, and don’t just sell it, I am uniquely qualified to serve you for your investment property advice, exchanges and purchases. The vast majority of agents sell real estate – but own little of it, and certainly very few of them own investment real estate as I do!!!

If you are ready to grow and purchase an additional investment property or properties, or if you are ready to exchange to accomplish an important investment objective – please strongly consider my real estate team to get this job done for you!!!!

Investors are a large portion of my clientele. I have owned investment property in the Copperfield area, in Santa Rosa, and out of state. I have access to several vendors who can accomplish many things for an investor during the marketing period of a property, including painting, landscaping, repairs, etc. I obtain these estimates for the investor, because a large majority of sellers live out of the area. I handle all of these matters so that the investor does not need to.

I obtain competitive estimates, and present the seller with recommendations based upon many, many years of personal and business experience regarding the improvements (if any) that will make the largest net profit for the investor.

I have tremendous experience in knowing how to optimally intersect the seller's need for continuing cash flow from the existing tenant with the important need to maximize the value of the property during the marketing period. I am highly experienced and knowledgeable about various strategies for handling cash flow issues during the marketing and/or preparation for the marketing period.
