Real Estate Investing And The Will To Win - How Does It Work

Aug 17, 2007
Many people get attracted to real estate investing as a means to make big money in a short time span. One does get to hear such stories often, but events to support them do occur once in a blue moon. The fact remains that success in real estate investment like all other ventures is rooted in perseverance. Perseverance is a quality, which indicates the will to win. It is imperative to have this quality to be a winner in this volatile and unpredictable field. Unfortunately, there are very few new entrants who posses this essential quality. As a result, over time, one finds a consistently changing lot of players and only a select few are able to sustain the tough conditions and stick around to attain success and thrive.

The greenhorns have one common question: How does investing in real estate work? You come across many excellent strategies, many advisers offer brilliant advise on ways to go about the investments and there is an abundance of resources to support serious endeavors in the field. You can even access investment clubs and forums, learn to use intelligent marketing, acquisition and finance techniques and get into joint ventures and partnerships to succeed. But when there is a lack of resolve to face hard market realities, tough conditions become a source of quick discouragement. The inevitable result is a hasty exit from the game.

This is what usually happens to those who have an unrealistic approach to real estate investing. They lack firm determination to stick it out and fight if need be. In real estate investing, this is a pre-requisite. Market values and lending criteria are in a constant state of flux. You have to be prepared to remain firm in fluctuating conditions till things stabilize, always keeping your eyes and ears open to assimilate information and be ready for quick action if required. This is a sure way to success in the long run.

A good many first timers make a note of these, struggle and get rewarded for their efforts, savoring the sweet taste of success. You would do well to remember the words of Winston Churchill that went on to become one of his most famous quotes. During a speech given in 1941 at the Harrow School, he said, Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never - in nothing great or small, large or petty - never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense.

The intent behind this quotation could not be emphasized more than in the case of real estate investing. As it turns out, those who do not go by the principles implied through these words are later referred to as disillusioned former investors in real estate investing circles.

How can one avoid becoming part of this failed investor lot? The obvious answer to this is to enter with a fighting spirit. Do not pin your hopes for minting money overnight. Keep your calm in the face of odds and always maintain a practical and realistic approach to everything in the business of real estate investing.
