Addressing The Myth of Buying With “Equity” | What Is a Good Deal, Really?

Many real estate investors think that a good deal means buying with equity built-in, meaning you have to buy a deal that is worth more than you are paying. But real long-term success in real estate proves that you make equity over time – you don’t have to buy with it baked in.

In fact, let’s revamp the concept of what a good deal is, and let’s consider what a purchase-worthy property might be. Now, this may not fit your traditional real estate education, but in our long career, we’ve found that purchase-worthy properties make way more sense than a “good deal”.

“It’s the factors beyond the numbers that will dictate whether or not something is a purchase-worthy property.”Kevin Clayson 

In this episode, we break down five criteria by which we determine whether we have a purchase-worthy property on our hands or not. Tune in to find out more!

Key Takeaways

  • What people traditionally think is a good deal (01:28)
  • The first criteria is always the market value (07:13)
  • Your decision needs to be based on the market environment (11:15)
  • Something a lot of people don’t consider before buying (14:25)
  • Don’t get carried away with the numbers (18:12)
  • Why is a positive cash flow so important to look for (23:10)
  • Predictability and consistency as cornerstones of success (28:44)
