Real Estate Business Plans

Jul 8, 2008
When you think about real estate and what you want, do you have a plan in place? The answer which will probably come from your lips is no. This article will talk about why you should look at putting a real estate business plan into place.

You may have never put a business plan together, let alone a real estate business plan. Think about this: putting together a business plan allows you to organize your thoughts. You can find a book at the library about putting a business plan together and the plan does not need to be overly elaborate. The goal behind doing this is to think through your strategy for the business and can help you in finding financing. If you were a potential individual looking to invest money with a real estate investor, what would you look for in an investor? You would probably want to look for someone who is organized and knows what he or she is doing. Advantage goes to those who have the plans then.

Think about how competitive real estate is. You want to develop a competitive advantage and your real estate business plan can do this for you. Going through a business plan requires that you research your competition. You are able to see what your competition is doing for marketing and how they are doing in general. By researching your competition, you are able to find out how you can position your company and yourself to attract your target audience.

When you are looking at doing a real estate business plan, make sure to include information about the competitive analysis. You will also want to consider who you will have on your management team and who will be on your team of advisers. Half of the battle in real estate is to find quality professionals who will work with you. Taking the time ahead of researching deals to gather a team will pay dividends in the end. If you buy a house and have to wait a month for a quality rehabber, do you think you are losing money during that time? Finally, focus on financing. You will want to have financing in place ahead of time so when you find a good property, you can jump on the deal ahead of time. As explained in the previous paragraph, this is a competitive advantage so speed can be of the essence to find some of the best deals.
