A lot of successful real estate investors are willing to share the secrets of their success but it is up to you to decide if this is the type of industry that you really want to go into. As a real estate investor myself, I can tell you just how profitable and rewarding it is. The money exchanged involve big amounts but that is not really the point. This is an exciting market to transact in and seeing the excitement in the eyes of first time homebuyers can be a whole new level of reward already.
In light of the new year, I’d like share with you some resolution tips that, hopefully, could boost your status as one of the many successful real estate investors in the country.
Resolution 1: Just buy something.
You will never get there until you take that first step. Assuming that you have the capital to work with, just buy something! Choose a property that you know will profit you one way or the other. It can be through rental or equity buildup or renovation for flipping – whatever it is, take that first step already.
Resolution 2: Work with what you have.
If you have existing properties, now is a good time to use them for refinancing. Real estate investors can profit greatly from the equity of properties and the record low interest rates in mortgage loans. This is a great way for you to increase your income without the need for new properties.
Resolution 3: Get a real estate team.
Any investor with intentions to build a business in real estate should have a team. It does not matter if you want to build an agency of real estate agents or work alone, you need a professional network that can support you. All real estate investors need real estate lawyers, contractors, accountants, lenders and home inspectors. You also need to get in touch with other real estate agents. All of these professionals will assist you in your endeavors through their own connections and networks. Use them as resources and trade useful information too. Building professional relationships will get you far in this industry.
Resolution 4: Look forward to 2014.
A great investor always considers possibilities in the future. Given that fact, concentrate on the present but keep an eye on investment trends in 2014. That way, you can maximize any investments in 2013 to pave the way for greater returns the year after.
Resolution 5: Re-evaluate and improve your systems and processes.
This resolution works for all types of profession and not just for real estate investors. It is always a good idea to make sure that you improve your systems and processes so you function more efficiently. Invest in the latest gadgets to help in your day to day operations. If there are technological aspects that you do not understand, take time to learn them. Equip yourself with the right tools.
