Why Real Estate Investing Is A Process





One thing that many people do not realize is that learning to invest in real estate is a process. They don't realize that because they often only see the end result – a prosperous person with a Midas Touch, or a person who always finds themselves in an avalanche of great deals. They think the person is simply lucky.

Someone who has truly begun their own real estate journey knows, however, that these successful investors are utilizing a skill they have developed over time. Perhaps they have developed a knack for being in the right place at the right time, and in a sense that is indeed luck. However, that seeming luck developed over years of learning. These investors learned where to go so that deals could find them.

It's like considering a hunter lucky because he tends to find deer in the woods, while you never see any in the city. The hunter is lucky because he knows he has to go to the forest if he wants to find deer. It's mindbogglingly simple when you really think about it.

Ken McElroy, who wrote “The ABCs of Investing,” one of the Rich Dad book series, said that, if you begin to do the things that investors do, you will start to see patterns. You can use those patterns to determine your course of action. It's just another way of saying, “Fortune favors the prepared mind.”

People who just don't get that concept, or who refuse to accept it because it is attached to the concept of work, tend to be magical thinkers and get-rich-quick schemers. They think there is something mystical at work, when the only thing really at work is the investor. McElroy says that there are some people who just don't really have the desire to do the work. Those tend to be the magical thinkers, and they are that way because they want to be.

However, if you do have the desire to do the work, and all you need is to be told what work to do, then there is hope. You can learn the technical skills. Those are the people, McElroy says, for whom he wrote “The ABCs of Investing.”

Elsewhere in the Rich Dad series, Robert Kiyosaki, who started the series, said that the people who do lose big in real estate investment are typically the ones who jump in without first taking the time to learn about investing. They simply don't know how to do it. That is what people don't understand about getting rich, and more specifically about real estate investing, that it is a process. You are no more going to swagger into the arena, plunk down your money and make a killing any more than you would swagger into a hangar, jump into an airplane and start doing loop-de-loops. That approach is likely to get you killed. That approach in real estate investing is likely to cost you a lot of money.

But if you take it slowly and allow yourself to make plenty of small mistakes that won't make you crash, then you will begin to build a base of knowledge. You will begin to see how it all fits together and you will start to make money.

It is a process.

Why Real Estate Investing Is For Skeptics
According to the American Heritage Dictionary, a skeptic can be defined as, one who instinctively or habitually doubts, questions, or disagrees with assertions or generally accepted conclusions. People generally use a derisive tone to call someone who questions things a skeptic, because it is easier for them to bully someone out of having a scientific approach to things, than to back up their own assertions. However, being a skeptic is not a bad thing, especially when it comes to money....

Anyone Can Learn To Win At The Real Estate Game
People enjoy being mystified. Art mystifies them, so they ooh and ahh and congratulate the artist on his or her natural talent.

Investment in real estate mystifies them, and so they assume it's just a gamble and that certain people are either lucky, or that they must have been born with a gift . The fact is that succeeding in these disciplines and others is just a matter of...

The Psychology Of Real Estate Investing
In the 1980s, if you were going to go on a diet, magazines would tell you to think thin. They never actually explained what that meant, but everyone knew they were supposed to do it. Adopt the psychology of the thin person, whatever that was. It follows that, in order to become rich, you should be able to accomplish that by adopting the psychology of the rich, right? Actually, it does. Specifically, you should adopt the mindset of the successful real estate investor. Successful real estate...

How You Can Invest In Real Estate
Robert Kiyosaki, author of the Rich Dad book series, has said more than once that you don't have to have money to make money. In “Cash Flow Quadrant” however, he reveals how much money he paid for his first investment condo. What if you want to buy a condo but you don't have a few thousand spare dollars lying around to make it happen? You can still make your purchase. The trick is, you just have to think about things a little bit differently. If you have not seen the movie “Schindler's...

Avoid Rookie Real Estate Investing Mistakes
When Robert Kiyosaki, author of the Rich Dad book series, bought his first property he was, of course, ecstatic. Finally, he had done it. He had taken that first important step in truly building his wealth that the man he called his “rich dad” so often touted—investing. He knew it was very important to become an investor and make his money work for him. The trouble was, the property he purchased was a losing deal for him. He didn't see this at first, thanks to a smooth-talking real estate...

Real Estate Investing The Pipeline To Your Financial Freedom
If you need to get water from one place to another, it seems to be common sense that you would build a pipeline to get the most water for the least amount of work, using technology. But the reality is, most people are taught to overlook the obvious in favor of the most familiar approach. Consider this story, told by Robert Kiyosaki in his book, “Cash Flow Quadrant.” There once was a village that had to wait for the rain in order to have water. This was a major problem for the village, and so...

Buying Real Estate Investments Myths Exploded
Myth 1: It Is Too Late To Invest. I’m Too Old To Wait For An Income. Fact: It is never too late. The focus should be on positive cash flow and not on the mortgage pay off date. It is easy to own several rental properties that will pay you enough to not only pay the mortgage, but also give you a nice income. Myth 2: I Can’t Afford To Buy Property Now. I’ll Wait Until My House Is Paid For, Then I’ll Look Into It. Fact: Your house has equity in it already. You can use that equity as a down...

When You Think Real Estate Think Rich
What is the difference between people who get rich and people who don't? It is a very simple question that many people simply forget to ask. The first time you are truly confronted with this question, you will probably reach for an easy answer, such as, “Being born into a rich family” or “Getting lucky with the lotto” or even “Having a good career that pays a lot of money.” And you might indeed be considered lucky if any of those things had happened to you. The bad news for those lucky...

Investment Property Is Good Debt
There is a lot of buzz on the web about Good Debt vs Bad Debt. The fact is, most of the baby boomers learned money matters from parents who grew up during the Great Depression. Since that time, many things have changed such as the Federal Reserve Board, insurance for deposits, checks and balances on banking procedures and since the 80s, checks and balances on Savings and Loans businesses. If you talk to a banker, you will hear one side, if you talk to a real estate investor, you will hear...
