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
