As is the case for any other investment, high returns in property investing can be achieved if one can sell considerably higher than the purchase price. Such a strategy will be highly profitable, since it will allow large capital gains (the difference between sales and purchase price). Simple logic suggests that selling at a price that is considerably greater than the purchase price requires that:
a) The value of the property increases considerably after its purchase
b) The property is purchased considerably below its market value, because of a rushed sale or other special circumstances.
