Realstate: Tips For The Novice Investor

Apr 18, 2008
Realstate refers to land and anything that is permanently attached to the land. Common types of real estate include houses, condominiums, apartment buildings, commercial buildings and shopping centers or strip malls.

The main objective of realstate investing is to make a profit from the purchased property. There are as many ways to invest in realstate as there are types of properties. However, to become a successful real estate investor, you must first conduct research and determine what type of properties make for the best investment.

There is no shortage of realstate investing information. One of the best places to locate information on this subject is the Internet. Using the World Wide Web, you can discover a wealth of information right at your fingertips. Much of the information provided online is available for free. However, more advanced real estate knowledge can be gained from enrolling in investment courses.

Prior to spending money on any realstate seminar or course, investigate the organization by typing in their name at your favorite search engine. If any complaints have been filed, chances are you will be able to locate them. Oftentimes, people who have encountered problems will talk about their experience in real estate forums or by posting information on their website or blog. Another place to check for complaints is via the Better Business Bureau at www.bbb.org.

Many realtors and investment companies provide free or low-cost realstate investment seminars. Oftentimes, these types of seminars can be located in the Classifieds or Financial sections of your local newspaper. Keep in mind that just because someone places an ad in a newspaper does not mean they are legitimate. Conduct online research to determine if any complaints have been filed against the organization. Prepare a list of questions and contact the company offering the course. If they are hesitant or unable to answer your questions, chances are good their seminar will not provide you with the quality information you are seeking.

Realstate seminars are particularly well-suited for individuals who prefer human interaction. Local seminars are usually presented to small groups consisting of 2 to 10 people. However, some organizations offer full day or weekend seminars to groups as large as 200 or more.

Experts suggest novice investors attend realstate investing seminars consisting of 25 people or less in order to receive adequate personal attention. Smaller groups provide a less intimidating experience for newcomers and offer more one-on-one interaction.

Another option for novice investors is home study courses. This type of realstate training is perfect for individuals who prefer to work alone or those unable to attend seminars. Home study courses oftentimes focus on niche markets such as foreclosures, short sales, multi-family and commercial properties, fixer-uppers, rent-to-own and more.

A lesser known, but highly effective way to learn realstate investing is to hire a real estate investing coach. Realstate investor coaches provide one-on-one training to individuals who possess a strong desire to learn the investment game. Typically, coaching sessions consist of one or two hour-long sessions per week. During this time, coaches help students determine which type of investing is best suited for them and create a plan to ensure they reach their goals.

There are many options available to learn the art of realstate investing. You can learn at your own pace or take an accelerated course. You can learn in a group setting or absorb knowledge in the comfort of your own home. The possibilities are endless, so what are you waiting for?

Get started today by conducting research on real estate investing. Regardless of your income, education, credit or employment history, there are programs available that can teach you how to become a savvy realstate investor. All you need is a desire to learn.
