There’s a fair number of real estate investor blogs out there, all tempting …. But, it’s hard to know which sites are truly trustworthy, educational, and informative. So, we went ahead and scoured the web to narrow it down some real estate investing standouts that we enjoy reading.

Thanks to the well defined tips, information, and news on the housing, mortgage and finance industries that these sites offer, the blogs below offer great insights into the challenges that confront real estate investors. So check them out and bookmark your favorites to keep up with all things real estate. Also, be sure to check out our Carrot blog. We’re here to help investors and agents achieve their goals.

Sure, you can use social media to gather your investor news, but not everyone wants to spend their days combing through their Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter feeds. Save time by going straight to the source, the powerful blogs themselves.

    I live in Denver I find it very hard to find deals because I find people will pay asking price for any dump no matter how bad I am talking about retail do you have a answer for that?

      Hey Norman, great question.

      That’s a really common thing that a lot of investors let bend their mindset a bit. Yes it can be harder to find as many great deals in markets like this but the funny thing about real estate is that no matter what type of market… there are always sellers who need to sell more quickly, or who don’t want to work with an agent, or who aren’t actively seeking out a sale (so no one else has even made them an offer yet), etc.

      It’s more of a mindset and marketing issue than a market issue.

      Portland is as hot if not hotter than Denver right now and we have multiple Carrot clients in that market doing better than ever. They have just shifted their strategy, do MORE marketing (you definitely have to ramp up your marketing in a big way. If you were sending out 1,000 postcards 5 years ago to get X leads… now you’ll want to start sending out 5,000 post cards for the same leads).

      But the deals are there. I know at least 2 investors that I can call on my cell in the Denver market who are doing 5-6 deals a month right now in that market and making very good profits.

      They’re out there man, just need to adjust the mindset a bit and ramp up the marketing to crack through that marketing clutter out there and get to prospects that aren’t listing their houses and where there’s less competition.

      There’s always people motivated to sell in any type of market that are willing to sell at a discount.

      Go get ’em Norman!
