I am Jeff Adams, a real estate consultant with years of experience in this exciting field of investing and showing people the right path to make it a successful and profitable venture. I would like to share some secretes of my own success in the field of real estate investing. Following are some expert real estate investing tips to make your journey into this new and exciting investment field, profitable and enjoyable.

Some of these tips have helped me immensely not only in the field of real estate but also in many other aspects of life, while some others are very specific to the field of real estate investing. Study them carefully and I promise you that they will make a huge positive impact on your life as a successful real estate investor.

1. Plan carefully

Being very clear about what exactly you want to achieve through this new venture is of utmost importance. Having a clear goal is like winning half of the battle right in the beginning. Once you have your goals clearly defined in your mind and preferably written on paper, create a simple yet effective action plan about what steps you will need to take in order to achieve those goals.

This may include many things such as, what actions you will take, whom you will meet, how and where will you meet them, how much time will you devote to this activity, how much will it cost you to do the things that are important like learning about various aspects of the field, travelling to visit people, agents, properties, etc. Also think carefully about the source of money for your investment, the risk involved and how you will manage it.

2. Have an expert opinion

Although your plan may be a great one, it is always wise to get an expert and experienced investor or consultant review it. In the fit of enthusiasm and excitement, your plan will often tend to become a little over-ambitious or unrealistic. It takes an expert eye to detect these weak spots in the plan and improve it with a more down-to-earth practicality.

Find a good agent or consultant who himself is an investor and learn from them about the ins and outs of the trade. Get numbers of some of the investors they have helped and talk to those people about their experiences.

3. Avoid guesswork

Do proper research of every property you want to invest into. Don’t just go by speculation or guesswork. It is important to offer enough forethought to every property decision. Blindly hoping for a property to yield profits isn’t the smart way of approaching real estate investment. Real estate investing is not gambling. And therefore, in order to succeed, you must take calculated risks.

Learn as much as you can about the locations where the property you are interested in investing lies. All this research and investigation will pay off by helping you make a sound decision about your investment.

4. Be patient

As with any other area of life, patience is an important mental attribute while dealing with property matters in real estate investing. As a new comer in this field, you will undoubtedly experience many ups and downs. When you are experiencing a low period, you will feel discouraged and will feel like quitting. But my advice will be, “Don’t give up!”

These highs and lows are only part of the initial learning process and will be fewer and fewer as you gain more experience and knowledge about investing intelligently. If you will keep going in spite of the initial hiccups, you will eventually succeed and will start making stable profits.

5. Begin small

One step at a time, will take you far. There is a tendency in new real estate investors to jump into deep waters before even learning how to swim! This is not the smartest things to do. It is always more sensible and practical to start with smaller investment goals.

Invest in smaller amounts and on properties that will demand less of your time, money and effort. For example, start by investing in residential properties instead of going for commercial ones. A residential property is easier to manage and if you know how to manage your own house, you probably won’t have any difficulty managing a residential property you purchase for sell or rent. This will give you a good hands-on experience of the real thing. Once you have enough experience, you can move on to more demanding investments.

Follow these simple tips and I am confident that you will soon become a successful real estate investor making stable gains with your intelligent investing.
