Why Real Estate Investing for Beginners Courses Should
Include a System that Never Changes
Any good review of real estate investing for beginners should cover using a
system that never changes. Here’s what you should know.
There are a lot of folks out there claiming to teach real estate investing for beginners.
But are they truly experts with advice and training that new investors should follow? Or,
are they people who made money during the boom, when it was hard not to make
On the other hand, there are a few professionals out there teaching top level courses
who made money during the lean years after the bubble burst. Those are the people
who know the nuts and bolts of property investing no matter what the market is like. And
they’re the professionals you want to have teaching you if you’re just starting out.
The Good Old Days Are Gone for Good
During the sunshine years of property investing, it wasn’t uncommon to hear of
investors who made millions using all kinds of clever moves. Some did it by negotiating
short sales and flipping them to buyers. Sounds clever, but now that the government
has imposed deed restrictions that don’t allow investors to flip short sales any more, that
won’t work. Those properties have to be held for between 30 and 90 days. This also
applies to Real Estate Owned (REO) properties. Meaning you can’t even flip bank-owned
properties any more.
Tactics Change, Systems Endure
Your goal in this changing real estate environment should be to work within a system in
which you can consistently make $40,000 in profits for every property you buy. The fact
is, lots of people made millions during the real estate boom negotiating short sales and
flipping them to buyers. But now, with the new government restrictions, you need to find
a system with stability – not only for today but also for years to come.
The System That Never Changes
You need to work with a real estate system that is “Evergreen” – meaning a system that
will not be subject to the vagaries of the marketplace and will always remain effective
regardless of market conditions. Who wants to worry about how the next market trend is
going to affect your business? A system that works consistently involves a basic and
very repeatable process that can be performed over and over again, year in and year
The truth is, real estate investing for beginners may never be the easy-money machine
it was ten or twelve years ago. Meaning that smart real estate investors are using
systems and methodologies that are Evergreen and not likely to change over the years
ahead. Perhaps you should follow their lead.
