I was as naive as they come when I first started investing in real estate. You can say that I was fresh out of boot. As an amateur real estate investor then, I want everything to start right and adhere to everything I've learned by the book. I know well that I must push myself forward to not only make my first revenue, but to build experience as well. My primary big concern was where to begin? Funny because It was similar to staring at a scrumptious plateful of spaghetti, quite tangled, but oh how I would want to dig in! Moving on, I've been very ecstatic to start since it is the day to buy my own income property.
I had always wanted to have a consistent flow of income. I am fed up of sitting day in, day out in my office, in which my glowing computer screen and cubicle walls are the only views to see. The freedom to work anytime I wanted to is the reason why I've chosen to put money into income properties. I am a people person and I can certainly see myself enjoying and interacting with new people, being able to help them out to escape from the corporate jungle. I know that once I have learned the ropes of investing, the whole thing would run like a well-oiled machine.
My innate abilities as a jack of all trades was put to the test as soon as I bought my first income property. It will be good for you if you could do the following: be a self-learned legal counsel who is proficient in your state’s housing laws, have an instinctive eye for design and style, a little bit of carpentry, being friendly… I could go on and on. It's not really possible to know everything about real estate investing so it's best to concentrate and master the fundamentals and techniques.
Preparing in advance before you start will help you lots in the long run. Are your finances sufficient? What is your exit plan? If you want to invest right away, are you aware that you may use your Roth IRA or 401k? A good credit score or having a great deal of money is not even required for you to start investing. Make sure to get your income property at a right price, set the conditions to your exit plan and you will certainly make money from it.
Your most important goal here is to have financial freedom. It seems like only yesterday that I had made my very first successful income property deal. Your best educator are past experiences. Obviously, all the fundamental knowledge you can get from real estate investing schools, mentors and doing self-research are invaluable but delving in and going through it is a different and completely new degree of understanding. Do not fret, go on and explore; even the real estate professionals today used to be first-timers like you. To put it briefly, the success of big things had always started from smaller things.
