As a real estate investor, having good credit can be a huge advantage. It can help you garner one or more loans in order to purchase properties or renovate them. It can even help you prequalify for mortgages so that you can go into a deal or an auction with proof of your ability to purchase a property. In short, it’s a great thing.
However, it may surprise you to find out that good credit really is not all that crucial to your success as a real estate investor – and this is particularly true when it comes to short term real estate investing. Now, do not get me wrong. If you take out a loan, you should pay it. Period. You should never default on your word. However, it is a fact of life that even the best credit scores suffer in the real estate investing business simply because qualifying for multiple loans hurts your score – even if you pay them on time and in full. And in today’s economy, people’s credit scores are hurting for more reasons than just their loan applications.
If you have a less-than-perfect credit score, you may think that real estate investing is not an option for you. However, there have never been more opportunities for successful short-term investing than now, and in many cases, your credit will not be an issue at all. Here are a few ways to invest in real estate short-term without factoring in your credit score:
• Flip contracts rather than properties
Probably the shortest term real estate investing option is to flip contracts. Many real estate investors charge a flat or percentage-based fee for deals. They set them up using a contract that is only binding if they locate a buyer with the ability to make the purchase. Then, the initial investor sells the contract to the investor who will actually be buying the property. A real estate investor with a good list of contacts can easily make good money flipping contracts, and their credit never enters the picture because they are not making the purchase themselves.

• Look for creative financing options
Because it is so difficult to get a loan these days – and even people who can still have to come up with a 20 percent down payment – more and more sellers are offering seller-financing, subject-to deals and lease-options. In many of these transactions, your ability to pay far outweighs your official score indicating your likelihood of paying. There are a lot of sellers who still will want to see your credit, but in these cases, questionable credit does not equate to the end of the deal.

• Be a business partner
Many people who would like to invest in real estate do not because they simply do not have the time. Several of my very successful colleagues actually got started from the “dead-broke” level with terrible credit by partnering up with an investor who had the means and the inclination, but simply lacked the time to be involved in short-term real estate investing, which yields big rewards but sometimes requires periods of concentrated effort.
If you are interested in short term real estate investing, your credit score should not be a major factor in your decision to get involved. Your ability to spot good deals and turn them into profitable transactions will enable you to successfully invest short term whether your credit record is spotless or in need of a good “wax and polish.”

Among the world of internet marketing, perhaps the most popular, easiest, and profitable niche is within affiliate marketing. That is because as an affiliate marketer, your business opportunities are infinite. You can make a great living by selling products, services, or information all from the comfort of your own home.

Additionally, the types of goods or services that you sell are unlimited. Whether your expertise is with technology, animals, or anything in between; there is the best affiliate marketing program available to you.An affiliate is basically a person or company that drives traffic to a merchant’s website using their own marketing efforts.

The affiliate will then receive a commission based on any successful leads, referrals, subscriptions, or sales that they generate for the merchant. Almost all major companies, and many less popular companies as well, offer an affiliate program. It is generally free to sign up and you are given access to the affiliate program immediately.

In fact, you could theoretically sign up as an affiliate and start making money today, which is just one of the many reasons why an affiliate marketing position is the best home based business opportunity available. Once you complete the free sign up, you will be given a unique web link and every time that you get a customer to click on your unique link and then make a successful transaction, you will receive a portion of the profits.But you cannot just sign up and expect to start earning thousands of dollars right away.

There are a few affiliate internet marketing tips that you should follow.

First, when you sign up as an affiliate, you must pick a username. This username will most likely be used as a part of your unique link to refer prospects to the merchant. So, you will want to be sure to pick a subtle username. Customers will likely be scared away by an unusual looking link. There is another solution, though, to this problem. You can pick any username that you want if you use a link cloaking software.

Basically, this means that you will be disguising your affiliate link so that it looks like a regular link. This will keep customers who are familiar with affiliate programs from stealing your commissions or going straight to the merchant’s website without using your affiliate link.The best affiliate marketing programs are ones that advertise within a niche that has a high demand but is not too saturated by other marketers. For example, think about a niche that you really enjoy or have a lot of expertise in.

For this example, let us say that you want to advertise products relating to dogs. Well, if you type “dogs” into Google, you will get close to 200 million results. That is too much competition. You will want to dig a little deeper into the dog niche. For example, type the phrase, “luxury dog accessories” and you will get just a couple hundred thousand results.

The competition within this sub-niche is much lower and you are much more likely to have success selling affiliate products within this specific area.The great thing about affiliate selling, though, is that you are not limited to any one niche. This is the best home based business opportunity because you can create multiple streams of income selling various affiliate products and you’ll never have to leave the comfort of your own home.
