There are a number of different ways to go when you get started with buying, selling, or renting a home with the intention of making money through investing in real estate. Those that have made their money have been great at one thing and good at many others, but they have all had to start somewhere in their real estate investing careers. For you the goal is to get started and make some money, later you can worry about making all of the right decisions. Here is a quick rundown of what I am talking about.
Don’t wait for the major deals to come along that will continue to move you toward your goal of making a fortune right off of the bat. You can’t be a cherry-picker when you begin investing in real estate, but it should always be your ultimate goal when the process has moved to a solid point in its evolution. Don’t make deals that may set you back in your progression as a real estate investor, make deals that you think will make money as regularly as possible. On the other hand, don’t sit and wait for your home run ball to come along … set up in the beginning with a variety of doubles and triples.
In the beginning you need to do whatever it is that you have to do to create an income that is both comfortable and reliable on a consistent basis. Remember, in the beginning your goal should be to make an honest living that pays the bills regularly, but everything should build toward you making a sizeable income. With the potential of having a few major deals on a regular basis you will not only make a good amount of money, but you will keep your overall workload smaller by virtue of having less properties to take care of on a daily routine. Real estate investing is not for the faint of heart so keep in mind that it may take time to reach your desired purchase goal.
