Stay Educated

Focus On A Niche

A jack of all trades is a master of none. There are many different niches within real estate. Most investors fail by trying to tackle them all. Niches such as buy and hold, fix and flip, wholesaling, section 8, commercial, and much more are some of the many niches that an investor can get involved in when it comes to investing in real estate. Take the time to find a niche that aligns best with your goals and approach to investing. Once you’ve chosen your niche, take the time to master that niche. By being the best at one thing, you are setting yourself up for greater success.

Know Your Market

The best place to start investing is in your own backyard. Why? Because you already know the market. You are familiar with the good neighborhoods versus the bad. You know where all the public transportation is and all the best shopping. If you don’t live in the market you are investing in, then still become an expert. Every market is different. The more you know about a particular market empowers you to make better decisions and avoid costly ones. Take the time to truly understand your market and you will be able to spot better quality deals which in turn, will be much more profitable deals.

“I came from Argentina when I was 20, I am 40 years old now. I didn’t know anyone, I am CERO generation, usually people say, I am first or second generation but I was the one that crossed the border, no language, no friends, no family, no money, nothing, nada… If I can do it, anyone can.”
