Getting Started with Real Estate Investing

Getting Started Real Estate Investing

Most people want to invest in real estate to increase their passive income and net worth.
What holds most people back is that they don’t have enough money to get started investing in real estate.
Most people have heard of the old saying “It takes money to make money”,

I challenge you to reconsider this false belief. -Lou Castillo

For investors looking how to get started real estate investing, today is a good day. Every day there are thousands of new entrepreneurs looking to start a real estate investing business, but for one reason or another, they keep putting it off and waiting for the right time. Truth of the matter, there will never be a perfect time to get into the real estate investment game, as there will always be something going on that can present tall hurdles for investors to overcome, whether it’s not enough money, credit, funding, education or time to start. In fact, some of the most successful investors experienced the same exact problems, but what got them over these hurdles was being hard-headed and never taking no for an answer.

If you want to know how to get started in real estate investing, register now for our upcoming event.

Here’s a brief roadmap of the things you will learn at this event:

Join a Real Estate Investment Group: For many, there is something intimidating about speaking to and meeting new people. However, the reality is that this is always the best time to start. If you want to become a successful real estate investor, you need to be around other successful real estate investors. For those of you wanting to become real estate investors, it begins by showing up at your local real estate investing group.

Know Your Local Market: Most new investors know they want to become wholesalers, flippers or landlords when they start investing in real estate. They know the type of investment they want to buy, but not where to buy it. Real estate investors need to first identify which areas of their market are able to flip or fill properties the fastest. Contacting your groups real estate broker and asking them to provide you local stats for your area is a great place to start.

Do Your Due Diligence: Once you fully understand your local markets and where you want to acquire deals, its time to complete your due diligence on the properties that you wish to make offers on. Much of the information you need to make an educated offer can be found online by searching your local courthouse register of deeds. Property values can be cross-referenced by visiting your local tax assessor website and other more popular sites like Zillow, and the MLS. Remember when you are researching value, the value of properties in a certain area is established by the price the properties actually sell for, not what they are listed for. There is a big difference.

Make An Offer: Act fast on great deals, if not, someone else will get them! Don’t over-analyze. Analysis paralysis hold investors back from making offers on great deals. There is no such thing as a risk-free deal. Some risks are smaller than other risks, but every real estate deal can have potential problems. If you did your due diligence on the property then you should make an educated offer that you know is profitable. Real estate investing is a numbers game. You may have to kiss a few frogs before you get your prince or princess. You may have to make ten or more offers to get just one property accepted.

Just Do it: If you are wanting to learn how to get started in real estate investing, it’s very simple: All You have to do is “Do it.” You don’t need to become a Realtor or a Broker, you don’t need to get any licenses, you don’t need a large bank account or perfect credit. All you need is the desire to succeed and RSVP to attend our upcoming event.
