Flowing from planning are order and control. With these you can manage your time and money properly. Without order and control you can lose all your spare time (and even some of your work time) attempting to manage projects, money and people. You can also go broke, unless you have buyers or renters for your properties.
Doing such amazing feats, however, takes a lot of practice. Successful property investing involves trial and error and successful investors don’t become millionaires overnight. It takes a lot of hard work on their part, coupled with patience, dedication, and having the right knowledge on real estate investing, to get where they are currently at.
One lesson being rich teaches people is that money talks. Savvy property investors know you don’t have to wait until a For Sale sign goes up in order to purchase. If an interested party takes the current owner by surprise, it is often possible to get a good price on a piece of property that isn’t even up for sale. And there aren’t any competitors to drive up the price.
I can see how it happens – many people just fall into property investment. They haven’t been able to sell their house for the price they wanted so they rent it out and hey presto they’re landlords and dare I say property investors. As you can probably guess you can’t duplicate that process because not many people have numerous houses they’ve been living in.
Think about the list for one moment and consider this: A seller who has become unemployed and is desperate of getting rid of debt obligations will negotiate very differently from someone looking to relocate closer to a safer neighborhood.
However, even though you may not be able to achieve such a huge task everyone can do something, and just starting to invest in property could help your finances a great deal.
