When you venture into the world of investing you are in all reality, building a business for yourself. It should be treated as such. You should dedicate time to your work and deal with people in a fair and consistent manner. Focus on your job at hand and don’t get caught up in the details.


Sometimes you have to rely on your head over your heart when it comes to investment, and this isn’t always easy for newbie investors to manage. In real estate investing, time really is money. Market prices can fluctuate quickly. You will want to be able to swoop up great deals as they become available and unload properties you want to flip in a timely manner. The longer you hold a property, the more it will cost in the long run! Tip #2: Have a Plan

Once you begin your investing journey, you are bound to meet lots of professional along the way who can help you. It is important to foster and nurture these relationships so you can find the professional YOU want to work with. On your team, there should be an agent you turn to when the situation arises. A lawyer whom you consult with on all deals. An accountant who keeps all of your books in order. And a lender who will be there with the funds when you need them. By surrounding yourself with a team of people you can trust (and enjoy working with) will streamline your processes and make things much easier for you! Tip #4: Find A Mentor

Building a relationship with someone who has been in your shoes, can be invaluable to your success. Your mentor should help keep you motivated, provide you with advice on potential purchases, and help you avoid making costly mistakes. You will learn more from someone who has done it all than you would in any book. Tip #5: Don’t Be Afraid To Stay Off The MLS

I just wanted to take a few moments and thank you for your efficiency and support during the re-finance of our home. You made this transaction seem effortless, and my wife and myself are extremely grateful. You not only helped us reduce our mortgage from 30 years down to 15 years, with only a slight increase in our payment, but you also made sure that all closing costs incurred were an absolute minimum. This is our 3rd re-finance, and from start to finish, I can honestly say that I have never seen a transaction go as smoothly as ours did. You handled everything, and all it took on our part were 2 visits, one to your office and the other to the Title Company for the closing.

This was a difficult decision for my wife and myself before visiting and consulting with you, at your office. Before our conversation, I was very hesitant of having our monthly mortgage payment go up at all, even though it may have been minimal. You explained in detail, in layman’s terms, the future benefits of making this re-finance a reality.

I also wanted to inform you, that my wife and myself, will not hesitate, in fact we will go out of my way to highly recommend your services to anybody looking to make any financial decisions in the future. Once again, my wife and myself thank you from the bottom of our heart, as this was the best financial decision that we have ever made. Thanks to you it was a transaction that will help us and most importantly our kids, prosper in the future.
