Real Estate Networks 101

September 14, 2014

The housing industry can feel like a crowded place to a new investor regardless of the city where investments are made in the U.S. There are scores of intelligent people earning high cash returns with generally little effort who can attract beginners who want the same lifestyle. It is possible for someone to gain skills in the housing industry although what happens behind the scenes is often the most important. This real estate networks 101 guide is for emerging investing clients to explore.

Strength in Numbers

Rarely do wise investors make all decisions to buy, hold or sell when it comes to growing a portfolio. A secret in the industry is to have an internal network of men and women who can be relied upon when decisions must be made. The goal of a real estate network is to further an investment business using like-minded people as consultative professionals.

Think of a network as a team of experts. This team can help build a company, manage a company and help prevent unforeseen issues that can eliminate annual profits. Having a good team in place is the first step towards building any successful real estate network.

Example positions for team members:

1. Marketing

2. Property Management

3. Hard Money Scouts

4. Lawyers

5. Mortgage Brokers

 

Networks Change Over Time

It is unlikely that every person who enters into a network arrangement will stay with the arrangement forever. People come and go just like ideas. Building a core foundation of reliable people is what can help any investor to build upon success in the marketplace. This applies to rental properties, house flipping or standard buy and sell operations in the industry.

Finding core members of an investment company team can be challenging although is not impossible. Not ever person who shows interest in contributing to a team will be the most experienced person in real estate. Good ideas and a willingness to become better are two traits that will excel any new team member.

How to Setup Real Estate Networks

Job hiring websites do provide a good foundation for interacting with new people. Third party outsourcing websites can be one resource to find potential members of an investment company team. Most teams consist of one or two people and then can build from that point. Different states have regulations that require volunteers to receive compensation depending on the scope of employment.

Putting a network of people to work buying, holding or selling an investment property is not an easy undertaking. There is a wealth of information for starting and maintaining a real estate business that is found on this JWB group website that is useful to investing clients. Getting help when needed is one of the fastest pathways to housing industry success.
