The veteran real estate developer debuts a new online diary from which he will communicate his thoughts and ideas to the world.
ALHAMBRA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / February 25, 2022 / It is with great pleasure that Caspar Chou, successful entrepreneur and veteran real estate developer, announces he has launched a new blog, bolstered by two inaugural entries. The web-based journal is hosted by a well-known online platform and deals with many different matters relating to property investment and common-sense approaches to acquiring real estate, which are his areas of professional expertise.
In the latest entry, titled Caspar Chou Pinpoints 5 Real Estate Red Flags, Caspar identifies five common markers which investors should take as warnings to leave a property alone. In one notable passage, he addresses so-called ‘emotional sellers,' or sellers who are still very attached to their property, stating that they "can be difficult during the negotiation process. They may ask for more than the property worth or make unreasonable demands," he writes, elaborating, "They may cancel showings last minute or change their mind altogether. If they are selling the property themselves, this can take longer than other properties. Listing agents can sometimes hint at whether there is room for negotiation. This is an unfortunate red flag if the agent truly does not believe the seller is flexible."
In the preceding entry, titled Caspar Chou on How to Know When to Invest in Real Estate, Caspar Chou delves into great detail about the many ways that ordinary people can invest in real estate. In a section dealing with buying property with the intention of renting it out to tenants, Caspar lauds the strategy as a good way to earn stable, long-term income, but offers some wise words of caution. "Before investing in a multi-unit property, investors should fully understand this process. Some investors can handle tenants on their own, while others may need the help of a management company. These costs are important to factor in before purchasing a (rental) property."
