Pitfalls to Avoid
It is easy to get caught up in the excitement of it all or maybe you are somebody who can’t be bothered to look at many properties. If this is the case then you are more than likely to buy badly and lose thousands of dollars. Also, do not think you have to buy because there may not be another. There will always be other properties, so remember good things come to those who wait.’ You just want to get started so do not purchase the first property you see. Look around and compare until you find what you are looking for at the right price.
It is important to remember that your purchase is a business transaction only, do not look at the property like a home you would want to live in yourself. Only think with your head and not your heart otherwise you could find yourself offering more for the property rather than finding a way to pay less. Remember, as an investor your aim is to buy Real Estate at lower than market value.
It cannot be stressed enough how important it is to obtain a building inspection report on the property. If you find a cheap’ property do not get excited prematurely. Ask yourself why is it so cheap.’ There is always a reason and many times that reason is to do with problems associated to the property that will cost you time and be quite expensive. Therefore you do not want any unexpected surprises when you start work on the house.
Real Estate Investing can be very rewarding financially, even more so if you do your research. Do not make the same mistakes other investors have made but learn from them instead.
