With real estate’s current turn of events, 1-800-CASH-TODAY(tm) Home Buyers are realizing even greater returns than it did in the up market, but with far stricter set of buying rules… here’s how one professional home buying team makes it work so well.
One of these reasons is because of their strong necessity to place their investment criteria in writing, on the office board and in front of their teams faces daily.
Following are four reasons why 1-800-CASH-TODAY(tm) Home Buyers places such a strong emphasis on their investment criteria and how they realize such HUGE profits when most everyone else are making pennies, breaking even or losing money

They are aware of our buying criteria, ethics and prowess. Even content sellers are beginning to spread the word to friends and family of how we were able to help them (or someone they know) out of a bad situation. All of this is directly attributed from following the first three steps mentioned above.
Reason #4 Be Firm Yet Flexible
1-800-CASH-TODAY(tm) Home Buyers is able to evolve their investment criteria with the fluctuations within the market place, even down to the nuances of certain geographical locations. This eagle-eye approach gives them the leading advantage in buying right, selling right and realizing the maximum potential of profitability. It doesn’t take much for an area to drop a few points due to an REO bulk sale, of say 100 homes, taking a chunk from your profits or increasing your hold time… so keep a close eye on your buying market.
While there remains a strict rule of thumb that predicates 1-800-CASH-TODAY(tm) Home Buyers strategies and investment criteria, we would also like to tie-in a more personal approach in the way that Bruckner, a partner of 1-800-CASH-TODAY(tm) Home Buyers, evaluates additional investment criteria.
Following are Bruckner’s personal investment criteria
1. If he doesn’t understand the investment, he doesn’t make the investment, period.
2.) Bruckner invests only in areas where the advantage in making a superior ROI equates with minimal time, effort and energy being realized. This lowers risk, magnifies returns, and saves time and effort.
3.) Bruckner doesn’t put lots of capital at risk. If he is going to put money into a deal, he makes sure it is a low risk deal. He is never comfortable taking a high risk position with his money or his capital investors funds. Certain Master Criteria are never overlooked though; such as the LTV never exceeding 70, aggressively 40-60% or higher annual rate of return on investment depending on the degree of risk.
5.) The game has to be worth playing. This means that if the deal isn’t big enough, why bother Every deal requires due diligence of some sort. Deals where funds are put at risk or take on personal liability have the highest need for due diligence. When the return is not there, obviously the upside is not there on the whole. This equates to the go or throw criteria that 1-800-CASH-TODAY(tm) Home Buyers employs.
After reviewing our costprofit analysis spread sheet and when a large profit is neither feasible nor obtainable, not just as a rate of return, but in terms of total profit in a deal, Bruckner doesn’t bother taking the next step – but simply looks at the next property.
Here is an analogy The effort put forth in preparing a gourmet dish from scratch or driving to a 5 star restaurant is the same. Be it, the effort in preparing that meal is the same irrespective of who prepared it. Bruckner prefers to drive to the area it was prepared instead of lamenting over working hard and not smart.
6.) Bruckner also looks to ways to better other individual situations. Many times, he offers credit repair for those homes he buys on short sale, since the seller cannot receive any cash benefit from the sale. Likewise, by offering Seller Financing and creating cash flow to those whose credit has been destroyed and can’t move into a new home, it’s like a new lease on life. As Bruckner says, the better good for all will prevail in the winds of uncertainty for years to come.
To your success.
