Becoming and being a real estate investor can be fun and very lucrative once we get past the myth that real estate investing is easy money. If you are in it to get rich quick, it is unlikely to happen. Just like in any other business, the fundamentals are important. And the importance of running the enterprise as a business is equally important.

Running a business requires a set of skills that most people have never been exposed to and have to acquire. The same is true for the right mindset.

Acquiring either can be a gargantuan venture and many folks start out with a do-it-yourself approach and wasting time and money. Learning from those who are successful already will provide a huge advantage and head start in most cases, instead of making costly mistakes. Look out for the article entitled 7 Common Real Estate Investing Mistakes.

That said, there are other important considerations for investors. They are in no particular order in this article and eventually must be incorporated into a real estate investment business.

Establishing a buyer’s list as well as establishing a seller’s list are essential because without either, there is no business, nor any profit. Such lists can be generated many different ways, including through

  • Posting free ads on Craigslist
  • Posting ads on Yelp
  • Blogging
  • Social networking via Facebook, Twitter etc.
  • Professional networking via LinkedIn
  • Establishing a website specifically for buyers
  • Establishing a website specifically for sellers
  • Affiliate Networking

There are many more, naturally. Get creative but make sure to stay on target because it is so easy to get distracted with so much to do. Maybe just experiment with one or two of these suggestions.

But make absolutely sure to keep track of everything and set up a system to do this through. That could be a simple spreadsheet or your own handwritten notes as long as they are thorough and you’ll be able to decipher what you are looking at in several days’ time. Keep it simple initially, then eventually automate the system.

The above considerations will enable you to plan, focus, and execute better, and improve your real estate investment business’ bottom line.

This article is one of several in our Anatomy of a Real Estate Deal series. Please read any and all of them and send them on to the people you like and trust – anyone who has ever considered being a real estate investor or is one now.
