How can you make money with Baton Rouge homes for sale? Have you thought about the Baton Rouge Louisiana rehab market and the back end sales potential?


In todayís volatile economic environment you have to think about something I was taught at a very young age, never create or go against the market always study what the market is doing and go with that. Now with that being said what is happening in this market, Iíll tell you, people are deal shopping and much of Baton Rouge and America is in financial crises or at the very least watching how they spend money. How do you use this and the current market conditions to make money? Baton Rouge homes for sale are in pretty fair shape compared to the rest of the country so go with the current market flow and give people a deal. One way to do this is rehabbing Baton Rouge homes, if you are new to this and your finances are in good shape and you donít mind working for your money rehabbing homes is a great money making venture. 


The first thing you must do is find a house to rehab, one of the best ways is pay attention when you are driving and make a note of any house around Baton Rouge that looks to be vacant or not well kept meaning the yard is grown up, broken windows, anything that would tell you no body lives there anymore. There are many other ways and I will only cover a couple here for time sake and you should be able to pick up a house with one of these techniques. Another way is watch the classifieds in the Baton Rouge Advocate and as soon as you see a home hit the paper move quick you wonít have much time, make contact with the owner and see if you can buy it pre foreclosure this will be the fastest way to get your hands on the house.


I will assume from here you have found a house in Baton Rouge or the surrounding area using one of these methods, believe me there are plenty out there and I have bought many houses for sale just driving and finding a vacant home. Now that you have found a house you must get it ready for resale, unless you are a handy man yourself you are going to need some help from a contractor so find a good one that wonít screw you. One good way to find help is go to your Facebook and post what you are looking for and get a referral. I suggest you donít use any contractor that you canít get a reference on this is just begging for trouble. 


Once you have finished rehabbing its time to get into the Baton Rouge homes for sale market and get some heavy marketing going, internet, and some newspaper classifieds are good ways to help promote your house for sale and you need to look hard at listing with a good Realtor.  I have sold many houses myself but I have sold more through Realtors, the marketing expense and hold time will eat into your profit.


Making money with Baton Rouge homes for sale is pretty easy if you have some money and donít mind working. The Baton Rouge Louisiana homes for sale market is fairing better than most and now is a great time to get in there and mix it up to make money.
