Your First Investment Property

Are you to the point that you are ready to take that next step into Real Estate investing?  By now, you have heard many of your friends or relatives say that today is not the right time to get into Real Estate.  Do they have you convinced that now is not the right time to invest in Real Estate?   How many Real Estate investments have these “experts” completed in their career? My guess is that the answer is 1 or fewer.  We all get caught up in this sometimes. We often let others give us an opinion and then we feed off of it. It is fine to let others have opinions and let others share their thoughts with you.  However, you are the person in control of your life and your outcome.  Several years ago, I stopped listening to those people and those voices in my head that said “now” wasn’t the time and I started to change my future for the better. I started investing in Real Estate and started associating myself with like-minded individuals that can help me and offer words of advice rather than words of discouragement.

When you are ready to make a change in your life or in your career, you really need to get advice from others that have experience in what you are trying to accomplish. Coming in September, an old group will be getting back together. This old group is called SIG (Southside Investment Group).  SIG represents a group of like-minded Real Estate investors that come together to support each other and share ideas on ways to become a successful Real Estate investor. Whether you have done 50 deals, or zero; we welcome you to join us.  This is a group that you can share experiences and get advice from other successful Real Estate investors.  If you have an interest in attending, email info@ramsinvesting.com to get more information.

Credibility in Real Estate

Credibility isn’t something you can buy or pick up on the side of the road.  It is something that you earn.  When you are trying to earn the trust of someone who is going to lend you money or working with someone on a deal, credibility goes a long way.  While you know what type of projects and deals that you have worked on in the past, others do not unless you document what you have done.

Every project that we do, we take before and after pictures and document as much about the project as we can.   We have compiled several of our projects and created case studies to show how we walk through each house from purchase to sale.  We had these printed into packets that we can present to people to show what it is that we do and how we do it.  We call this a credibility packet.

When I am meeting with a private investor, in addition to an investor information packet, I present the potential investor with a credibility packet that shows them how we do our due diligence on each project from beginning to end to ensure that their investment is secure.  A credibility packet is also helpful in dealing with banks.  When you can leave some information with a lender about how you conduct your business, it is much better than if you just tell them without having supporting documentation.

Documenting your successes and ensuring you are operating as a world class company will help you to build credibility that will take your business to a new level.
