Investment Real Estate Tips for Beginners

 There are a lot of mistakes that can be made when purchasing investment real estate.   In fact, many savvy investors still make mistakes or have overcome huge mistakes in their investing careers.  The keys are to recognize, avoid, learn and move forward from these potential investing pitfalls.  Beginner investors have no fear!  Our team has compiled some great tips for purchasing real estate for investors!

  • Don’t speculate:  Most new investors follow the herd, listen to the media and buy with the hope the property will appreciate.  This is as much of a risk as hand picking stocks or going to gamble at a casino.  Buy below market properties that will produce a positive cash flow.
  • Don’t buy at Market Value: Beginners almost always buy real estate investments straight off the MLS for market value.  You can find deals in any market and there are always distressed properties.  Cherry pick from distressed properties at 70% or less of market value to create the highest ROI.
  • Don’t fall in love with a deal and get your emotions involved:  Many beginners are guilty of this one.  During the first few purchases of investment real estate many beginners spend minimal time finding a real deal.  As soon as a prospect property is located, they fall in love and do anything to get that particular land for sale.  Emotions drive the decision, instead of making an informed business decision.  Key is to get as many prospects that fit the criteria into the pipeline, filter out the duds and select only the best deals.
  • Have more than one exit strategy: To minimize risk, it is imperative to have multiple exit strategies.  If you cannot flip a property you can quickly end up upside down, behind in payments and lose the property and your credit.  Instead, buy below market properties that produce cash flow.  That way you can sell retail, wholesale, lease option, seller finance, refinance, even rent and hold.
