An Investor Or Broker In Real Estate

Since ancient times the property has been the best way to create wealth and large real estate barons today as Donald Trump, Warren Buffet and Robert Kiyosaki confirmed. You can enter in the real estate business in 4 different ways as a broker, investor, developer and builder… This is a good time for those engaged in the business of buying and selling real estate because currently opportunities abound both new units and use.

As a Real Estate Los Angeles Broker: This is the person who is engaged to negotiate the sale or rental of land, houses, buildings or apartments. Also called brokers, your business is finding customers to sell or lease the property of someone who does not want or does not have the skill or contacts to negotiate and earn a commission for this work that is proportional to the value of the property. In all countries there are associations of brokers that provide training and an exchange network of contacts to the success of its members. It also has the huge advantage that you can work it independently, you do not need capital and you can generate good profits without relying on agents office.

As Investor: He is the person who has a good capital to buy and resell properties. Usually this person takes advantage of reductions in prices or offers of those who sell their homes or land to buy and resell at a higher price thus obtaining an almost immediate utility. Its business also includes often remodel or improve houses or apartments to dramatically increase their sales price. The disadvantage is that smell and experience required for successful investments and minimize risk.

As Developer: Much like the investor , people or companies that have the ability to acquire large tracts of land for construction on small lots and sell them to customers at grassroots level. His success is to acquire the farms at very low prices, and resell urbanize thereby obtaining huge profits.

Builder: Although in the latter case the business is more focused on building, also has much to do with the housing market as their main clients are investors who require their services for the construction of houses, condominiums or offices for sale or rent. Its usefulness comes from the construction of low cost homes for sale in Los Angeles.

Builder should assess the quality of the materials used in construction, aesthetics and internal distribution, and in the case of apartment buildings. Verify if they have facilities like lift and power plant, and even if they are few or many units.

A real estate los Angeles consultant is able to make a study of the area where the property is located, compare prices and see which is the value per square meter in the area, even you could make a projection of the amount to win in business, and even if you should sell now or whether it is better to rent. In addition he has to make a capital budget for every project whether big or small. There are many people who invest in property market for long term profits prefer not to sell because their businesses are based on rental housing and local, which is a reliable source of income, especially if the properties are located in the central polygon and its surroundings, or in Areas University, where there is always a high demand.

Are You Really A Real Estate Investor

By accident, I believe that our industry does us all a disservice. How? By calling us real estate investors.
How many of you call yourselves real estate investors? Lots. How many of you feel a little queasy when you introduce yourself as a real estate investor? (No need to confess you just need to recognize that feeling).

Do you want to know why you may be feeling queasy? I’ll tell you. It’s because of the incongruent language we are using on ourselves. Let me prove it while helping bust the number one fear of real estate “investors”.

What do you think of when you hear the word investor?
I bet it’s “cash” or “credit”. Right? Maybe something that you feel that you don’t have. So if your business card declares you a real estate investor and you don’t have any cash, do you feel funny, or out of integrity, or incongruent? Maybe a little?

On the other hand, what do you think of when you hear the word entrepreneur? The answers to this question usually range from “opportunist” to “opportunities” to “ideas” to “deals”, etc.

The definition of an entrepreneur is someone who uses the time, talent and treasure of other people to realize their idea or vision. Read that again because this a subtle but important point about your real estate success.

The number one limiting belief of real estate “investors” is “I cannot do this business because I have little cash and/or bad credit.” And if your subconscious holds this belief, guess how hard you are going to work to find deals. Guess how many deals your are likely to do. That’s right, you will do ZERO.

Good news! This limiting belief is easily busted.
You are not a real estate investor. You are a real estate entrepreneur.

What’s the difference? Well, entrepreneurs bring the deals to the money. Investors bring the money to the deals.

By DEFINITION, entrepreneurs are not expected to use their own cash. They are expected to raise cash for their deals and projects. That’s what we do. We find the one thing that is much more valuable than the cash which is the deals.

Money is easy. Finding the deals is the part that requires a little work. But most real estate “investors” get hung up in marketing or making an offer because they don’t have the cash sitting in their checking account. They freeze.

You need to declare yourself a “Real Estate Entrepreneur.” That’s what I do. At this stage of my life, it’s more fun being the entrepreneur and putting deals together. It’s my form of creativity. It’s my art. Being the investor and putting up the cash is OK but it’s kind of like being the guy that furnished the paint to Michelangelo. Nobody remembers the paint supply guy.

I urge you to adopt 2 new affirmation(s):
I am a real estate entrepreneur.
I am leveraging the time, talent and treasure of others.
