Now is the time to buy into the US property market, writes Jamie McIntyre, while combining this investment with other non-conforming strategies.



If I had a way of buying a couple of hundred thousand single-family [US] homes and had a way of managing it, I would load up on it. -Warren Buffett



Warren Buffett has spoken no truer words. If you have the money it is time to load up on US property investments.



In key cities across the
United States, we are now seeing the bottom of the US housing market. And with many foreclosures about to be released it presents perhaps the best property buying opportunity so far. Here is why:



House sales in the US are now increasing. Once surplus supply has caught up as a result of the growing US population (estimated to be two to three years in select markets) we will see price growth again.



In some markets we have seen it already. However I’m happy to acquire as many US properties as I can based on zero growth for 10 years.



Why?



If you’re getting 20% net return, the house is repaid in five years and capital growth becomes irrelevant.



Other key points of why I believe we are close to the bottom of the US housing market include:



1. Employment growth in the US is driving an increase in home sales.



2. Sales of previously owned homes rose by 2% in January.



3. Sales of pending homes are seen as leading indicators.



4. Home sales climbed 10.3% compared with a year earlier.



5. Borrowing costs are also staying low.



6. The average rate on a 30 year fixed mortgage is 4.09%.



It will be a slow recovery but a recovery nevertheless. Patient investors who act now will do well. This is why I think Australians should load their Super up on US property.



Why leave it in managed funds going nowhere?



There is no reason to leave your money in managed funds, when 20% net rental returns are available and everything is arranged for you backed by real estate. There is very little in the marketplace that can compare to US housing for cash flow and future capital growth, combined with Australian land for significant capital growth and little outlay.



Ask your financial planner to offer something superior. I bet they can’t. Many financial planners have little answers and little idea of how to get their clients into lucrative investments such as this.



Watch the US property market. It will recover and if you are brave you can be on the back of that recovery.



Australian market will not slump



There is one thing that I agree with when it comes to the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA); the Australian property market is not going to crash like the US property market has done.



As you’ve read in the main body of this article, it is time to buy up as many US properties as you can. It is also time to buy as much land as possible in fast growing regional areas in Australia.



The US market and Australian market combined



US houses with 15% to 25% cash flow combined with land banking – where I can acquire land and not have to pay for it for six to 10 years – gives me instant cash flow from US properties and capital growth from land in Australia, without borrowing a cent from Australian banks.



I only wish it was this simple and inexpensive when I first started buying real estate in my 20s. It just means even those with a minimal amount of money or some funds in their Super can now get started in property.



One more wealth building strategy



The other strategy I combine with US property and Australian land is selling insurance on the stock market. These three strategies combined will make you a powerful investor.



I’ve made up to $86,000 in a single month with this strategy. In fact I originally taught John Thompson this strategy, a 78-year-old Australian who perfected it even further to make it even more conservative and consistent, and who I now learn from and follow.



Selling insurance has enabled John to make cash returns of $40,000 to $50,000 per month on a $500,000 portfolio.



What I like about John is his conservative way of going about it, and his consistent results. I currently do not know of any better financial strategies than the three above for switched – on investors in this market.



Did you know, this strategy was ranked the number three investment strategy for 2012 behind land banking and US property and ranked the number one trading strategy?



The fact that the top-performing fund as reported by Morningstar achieved its success by using this strategy should only encourage more people to consider nonconventional strategies that the majority are unaware of.



The fund was ranked number one by Morningstar as of 31 December 2011, and has outperformed the benchmark by 40% since its inception in October 2005.



Here’s how it works:



Once the fund selects the stock (only ever top quality), instead of buying, it makes a promise to buy the stock below its current price.



This strategy generates upfront cash to boost and smooth returns for the overall fund.



As you can see, combining the above strategies is an exceptional way to boost your investment portfolio and make your mark across property and stocks.
