Think Real Estate Investing Courses are a Waste of Time?
Why Most Professionals Wish They’d Had Real Estate Investing Courses When They
Were Starting Out.
If you’ve been trying to decide whether to spend some time and money on real estate
investing courses, you might be interested to learn what the pros have to say. If you’re
like most people, your time is valuable and your money – well, it’s even more valuable
because it’s based on your time. The last thing you want to do is throw it away on some
real estate investing courses that end up being a waste of those two precious assets –
time and money.
But the fact is, most real estate professionals are quick to point out that if the courses
are good ones, backed up with solid testimonials, they can save you years of learning
the tricks of the trade on your own. And save you tons of money in the process.
Good real estate investing courses teach how to make money with these tactics:
• House Flipping – Learning about how to flip properties using a consistent, time
tested formula that works every time is crucial in making money using this tactic.
• Rental Properties – Buying and holding rental properties is a great way to make
money in real estate. The top real estate investing courses will teach you how to
execute this strategy to make a solid living from rentals.
• HUD Wholesaling – This is another great way to make money in real estate. But
like the other strategies, this one requires special knowledge and techniques to
make it work flawlessly time after time.
In addition to learning about strategies and tactics like the above, good real estate
investing courses should teach you specific tools to use to help you become a
successful real estate investor.
An excellent tool to help you become a successful real estate investor:
Hire a Marketing Manager – A marketing manager should be brought on board as
soon as possible. They will be responsible for the following activities:
• Getting leads into your company. They should make the phone ring with
motivated sellers, motivated buyers and motivated lenders.
• Develop and execute seller marketing strategies:
o Direct mail: buy lists of pre-foreclosures, out of town landlords, probates, etc.
