Investors Newsletter – Volume 20

It’s November Already?

If you’re like us, the month change came as a HUGE reminder that we’re getting close to 2021! Now is a great time to reflect on where you are in your year, reassess your goals, and most importantly – send out mail!

I know we sound like a broken record, but so much has happened in the past month and we have so much great information to share here, including new mailing product types and things to help you on your journey to financial freedom.

Don’t forget to check out our Facebook Groups (LAND) (HOUSES) to ask questions, create partnerships, and more! LandInvestors is another great stop for anyone looking to connect with like-minded investors and more.

With the Pandemic of 2020, came temporary legislation allowing renters and mortgage holders to stop or delay paying landlords and debt holders with no real negative repercussions for their actions. This is unprecedented in U.S. history.

As of October 2020, approximately 34 million renters are at risk of evection and 2.9 million mortgage holders or 5.6 percent of homeowners are in some stage of forbearance.

Job loss has been sited as the primary reason for nonpayment. I believe there is something deeper here eating away at the reason people are not paying for primary housing; it’ simply gotten unaffordable.

Lender’s used to demand that a max of 25% of a household’s monthly net income should go toward housing. Studies like this from Harvard University and from Business Insider its clearly now about 40%. And one-size-fits-all does not apply here. The lower a household’s income, the higher of the net percentage of income goes toward housing.

The affordable housing crisis in America is officially here.

Since March of 2020, when the Pandemic became consisdent in the news, two industries began experiencing success like never before; mobile homes and recreational vehicles.

A summary of M/I here show their net income is up 90% and orders delivered are up 30% in 3Q of 2020. Winnebago reported 1.6 billion dollars of back logged orders here.

As historic investors of land, buying specific use property like mobile home or RV property is a logical extension of existing operations.

According to DataTree, there are about 700,000 property owners (land owners) in Texas that are currently hosting aging mobile homes.

These homes are existing and affordable and immediately available.

As successful land investors, it’s simple to send an offer to these land owners with mobile homes on the land seeking an undervalued acquisition; then assessing the property for clean up or replacement.

The net result for us is a profitable real estate deal and a new on-the-market affordable housing unit.

Marketing Tips

Take Advantage of Viral Trends

Every other day or week, there’s a new viral trend – whether it’s a challenge, a hashtag, a meme, or whatever it is – which means that every other day or week, there is a new opportunity to attract more attention to your social media content. The key to taking advantage of these trends is to put your own unique spin on it.

For example, a recent trend on Twitter was to post two pictures with the caption “How it started vs. How it’s going.” The trend began with mostly Gen Z couples posting pictures depicting the start of their romantic relationships and their present state. Pretty soon, more and more people began doing their own take on the trend – posts ranged anywhere between people displaying their artistic improvements to showing their weight-loss journeys and so forth.

So how could you, as a business person in real estate, hop onto this trend?

You could post pictures from when you started your business to where your business is at now. If you quit your 9-5 job to start your own business, you can post a picture of yourself in your old uniform or workplace along with a picture of your current business. You don’t even have to go back that far for this trend – you can simply post pictures depicting the beginning of a deal to the end of one.

Whatever the new online trend is, what’s most important is to be creative, and it’s okay not to hop on board every single one – you don’t have to force things.

This month’s question came from Ianover on LandInvestors.

How do you look for the liens on a land parcel before you enter into title? Are there any due diligence standards which people check before entering into escrow? I don’t want to pay for the escrow if there’s something that’s really easy to look up, which would make me walk. I’ve already looked at the county website for back taxes.

Check out Steven and Jill’s answer HERE.

Check out Ians question HERE. Make sure you read the answers from our community – we love to hear their valuable input!

In honor of Veterans Day on November 11th, we would like to honor our very one member Tiffany Carter.

Before Tiffany joined Land Academy: this IT Army vet, full-time employee, mom, and wife wanted to get into wholesaling and started reaching out to homeowners by “driving for dollars” when she was driving around, she had a light bulb moment and said, why not include in these manual letters she was sending out. Tiffany soon learned that her call back was always the landowners, and that’s when she decided to wholesale land exclusively and started to binge-watch Land Academy on YouTube.

Click HERE to watch Tiffany, talk about her first few mailers, and different experiences with each one.
