More About This Show

  1. In order to mitigate risk in real estate investing, you should know that you can’t do it alone. It’s important to build a strong team that is well versed in the areas that you are not. Without the right team in place, you’re likely to make some mistakes.
  2. It’s also incredibly important to not overspend. Don’t overspend on the purchase of the property. Don’t go overboard with upgrades either. When you pour too much into your properties, you’re decreasing your overall return.
  3. Invest in the right areas. Personally, I like to invest in C class neighborhoods. The tenants are hardworking blue-collar Americans. If your tenants are stable, you’re more likely to have consistent rental income year-round.
  4. Work with an experienced property management team. Find a company that will thoroughly assess the applicants in order to find reliable tenants. Work with a team that is local to your property and knowledgeable about the market. This will ensure great tenants and fewer vacancies.
  5. Purchase your property in landlord friendly states. If you have to go through an eviction, you’ll want to be in states where the legislation is on your side. In states that favor tenants, it can be extremely difficult to remove a tenant who isn’t paying their rent.
