In 2019, maybe more than ever before - you need to be able to evaluate properties, market for deals, negotiate with sellers, and have reliable funding in place to close. As I've mentioned before, I started my Real Estate Investing career in 2015, which admittedly was a better time to have started than 2019. In fact, I'd say I was about 5 years late. Had I started in 2010, its possible I'd have 10 times the number of properties as I do now. But like the Chinese Proverb says...
"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago... The second best time is now."
Having started my Real Estate Investing career in 2015 instead of 2010, I'll try not to lament only catching the tale end of what may prove to be the greatest opportunity to acquire deeply discounted properties in mass that may occur within my lifetime. Likewise, YOU should not use the current market condition as an excuse NOT to get started or to grow in YOUR Real Estate Investing business in 2019.
In this Episode (#6) of the [... and Landlord] Podcast, I talk about Evaluating Properties, Marketing for Deal, Negotiating with Seller, and Funding Purchases... all things that are always needed in Real Estate Investing, but even more so when in a "Hot" market where almost everything appears to be greatly over-priced as a Rental Property Investment.
