Beginners Real Estate Investing: Escaping Investor Anxiety

Here are some of my best beginner real estate investing tips

One of the main reasons that beginner real estate investors never get going is fear of failure, or fear the unknown. So many times new investors would rather live with a known bad situation, than put there neck out for an unknown outcome. Including outcomes that more often then not will end up better than where they are currently at in life.

One of my favorite, yet most saddening quotes is by Henry Thoreau “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them”.

Don’t be one of those men or women. Instead, live the life of this other Thoreau quote “I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours”

One of the tools that I have used to get beyond the ordinary, small life of quiet desperation is weighing my opportunity cost. Failing to weigh the opportunity cost of not doing, can leave you living your life like a paper weight.

Opportunity cost is the cost of what you are doing compared to what you could be doing. Example: If your time is worth $30/hr, and you take a day off work to sit around on your butt, then your opportunity cost for sitting on your butt is $30/hr. You are essentially paying $30/hr to sit on your butt.

This relates to real estate investing because if you could be making an extra $20,000 a year as an investor, then your opportunity cost for doing nothing is $20,000 a year. Essentially, most wannabe investors who have become paralyzed by fear are paying at least $20,000 a year, to remain in the “getting ready, to get ready” state of mind.

Take a few moments and write down the things that you have been giving up in your life in exchange for giving into your feelings of fear. What is your fear costing your everyday. For many of you it may be costing you:

  1. The great feelings of satisfaction from living the life of your dreams.
  2. An extra $20,000 a year that could take you from living a life of scarcity to living the life of your dreams.
  3. Paying for you child’s education
  4. Allowing retirement 15 years earlier. Think of all that you could do with 15 years of life.

The list could go on and on. Please take a few moments to write out what fear has cost you. Taking your thoughts down from your head and onto to paper will allow you to experience your thoughts with you senses. If you can come up with a list of 20 things that your FEAR is costing you, you will be well on your way to gaining the needed leverage to improve your life.

Secret Tips For REI Club Meetings

Having buyers is one of the most important part of the real estate wholesaling success equation. One of the quickest ways to meet investors who can later turn into buyers is by attending real estate investment club (REI Club) functions. The fees to join your local real estate investment club will vary, but I can promise you that investment clubs are well worth the money.

To get the most out of attending REI Club functions it will be very important to step out of your shell and meet the other investors in the group.

Here are a few thing to keep in mind when attending your local REI club meetings:

Remember that you have 2 ears and 1 mouth for a reason.-Try to listen twice as often as you talk. If you have not noticed yet, people love to talk about themselves, so let them.

Don’t try to be right– Even if you here the “Old investing pro” say something wrong, do not jump into correct him. People do not like to be corrected, and will often lash out at you if you try to make them look bad.

Have your success stories ready– Now do not confuse this with bragging, or tooting your own horn. Instead subtly drop your past success stories into the conversation to spark interest. If you have made another investor a lot of money tell that story. Maybe, you have found some great deals for another investor, talk about those great deals.
