Real Estate Clubs
Real estate clubs offer a resource of information for novice real estate investors. Most real estate clubs provide advice and insight about investing in property at no extra cost. Guest speakers will come in and lecture, usually promoting their own seminars or investment tools. It is important to be aware of your real estate club's angle before signing up for any additional courses.
Investing time in a real estate club can reap big financial rewards for any investor. Real estate clubs offer an opportunity to make contacts. Networking before and after the meeting is key to getting the most out of real estate clubs. Members are there to make money. Partnerships grant investors with the opportunity to make even more money. You need to invest time into the club to gather information and find colleagues interested in business opportunities
As a professional investor, I belong to several real estate clubs. The really good ones offer a balance of information and opportunities to purchase investment property. Guest speakers are relevant and aren't only there to pitch their products. Bad real estate clubs use high pressure sales tactics without sharing knowledge.
Before committing to one club, go to meetings for a month. Try to attend one guest speaker's presentation. Did the lecture give practical advice? Subpar speakers will spend their time trying to persuade members into buying their seminars or training manuals without teaching anything. A good guest speaker will divide their time between distributing tips and techniques and selling their product.
Write up a list of what you hope to learn from real estate clubs. Ask questions. Are organizers or other club members receptive to answering questions? At the end of the night review your list. Did you gain the wisdom you wanted, or did you walk away with promises of answers if you buy something else?
Real estate clubs aren't the only place to get information. My library of articles can teach you about investing at no cost. I have created this library to share the knowledge gained from attending real estate clubs and years of professional experience.
I have spent a lifetime building my network of specialists and am always looking for realestate investment opportunities. I can give you a head start over other investors who are just beginning their networking at real estate clubs. If you are an investor looking for joint ventures deals, register to have an email or RSS feed sent to your computer when new home investments are listed. Time is money. You don't have to start out behind everyone else. Sign up today and get an edge over the crowd.
