3 Tips for Investing in Real Estate: The Importance of Trusting the Team and Understanding the Market

When it comes to investing in real estate, many people tend to focus solely on the due diligence for the property itself. However, this flawed thinking often leads to missed opportunities and less-than-optimal returns. So that’s why we're here: to simplify the property selection process and explore why it's crucial to prioritize trust in the team and understand the market before making real estate investment decisions. Specifically, a topic that plagues many average investors: choosing between new construction and renovations for rental properties. So settle in, and let's debunk some flawed thinking together.

Flipping the Decision-Making Matrix

To make better investment decisions, it's crucial to flip the decision-making matrix and prioritize two things: (1) the team and (2) the market before focusing on the property itself. Why? By researching and finding a trustworthy team, investors can rest assured that their investment is in capable hands. Further, understanding the market they are operating in is vital for identifying profitable opportunities and mitigating risks.

Imagine a world where researching and trusting the team is prioritized before even contemplating the property. By flipping the decision-making matrix, investors gain a better understanding of the importance of having a reliable team on their side. Only then should they delve into comprehending the market they are operating in. Remember, it's all about building trust and understanding the playing field first, before making purchasing decisions.

The Flawed Thinking of Average Investors

In the pursuit of finding the perfect rental property, average investors tend to place too much emphasis on the property itself during their due diligence process. While it's essential to assess the physical condition and potential of the property, it should not be the sole focus. Investors often overlook a critical factor that can make or break their investment: the team behind it.

Tip #1: Team Trumps Property: Investing in real estate is not a solo endeavor. It requires a team of professionals who can navigate the complexities of the market, handle property management, and make informed decisions. When something goes awry with a rental property, it's usually due to mismanagement or an inexperienced team rather than flaws in the property itself. Trusting and relying on a competent team is the foundation of real estate success.

New Construction vs. Renovation: Prioritizing Trust and Reliable Numbers

One common dilemma faced by real estate investors is choosing between new construction and renovating an existing property. We call this “the allure of new construction!”

It's easy to get carried away by the emotional appeal of shiny, untouched properties. But here's a little secret: renovations can be just as profitable, if not more, with the right team in place. It's essential not to let the glitz and glamour of new construction overshadow the potential of renovation projects. A trustworthy team can work wonders, transforming rundown properties into lucrative investments.

Tip #2: Don’t Give Undue Weight: When deciding to make an investment, don’t give disproportionate weight to the construction type. Instead, focus on trust in the team and believe in their numbers. A reliable team with a proven track record, like JWB, understands the intricacies of both types of investments.
