Welcome to Buy, Fix, and Profit!

A How-To Guide For The Monetarily Motivated!

BuyFixandProfit.com contains over 100 informative real estate investing articles along with real world tips and advice on how to make money with real estate.

The site’s focus is on how to buy distressed property, fix it up, and how to profit from those efforts.

Our mission is to provide the reader with practical real life advice on how to make money investing in real estate. Building assets and creating passive income with real estate is one of the oldest and most proven ways to take control of your financial future. Stop worrying about social security, your pension, and your 401K. By taking action and following just the basics of real estate investing, you can create a life changing income for yourself and your family in a short amount of time.

The underlying mantra for this site’s investing advice is that equity and cash flow can be created by buying distressed real estate, typically due to its poor condition, and making the right repairs to transform the property into a performing asset.

Equity and cash flow is what will be created; each has it’s own merits. Cash flow is tangible and therefore should always be the #1 factor when analyzing a property as a potential investment.  Equity is akin to speculation; similar to the president of a start-up saying he is worth $100M on paper.  Equity positions are important when dealing with lenders for loan-to-value purposes, but other than that, equity is “imaginary” until realized through the sale of the asset.

We have provided a snap shot of our current investment property portfolio to show that we practice what we preach. Feel free to ask questions about our investment property portfolio in the comments sections or contact us directly for information on how to earn better rate of return on your IRA or other cash funds.
