If you are looking to make a success out of investing in property, whether you’re looking to supplement your income, or develop a new full-time career, there are certain personal traits that will be of great benefit to you in the coming weeks, months and years.
I believe you must have good levels of determination, resilience and single mindedness to achieve your goals, along with an understanding that great deals don’t just magically drop into your lap.
Serious money in property isn’t made overnight, it takes time, and lots of good, small, daily decisions built on top of each other, rather like the building bricks of an actual property.
You will need to work smart, as well as hard, and that starts with having a reliable and trusted team of advisors right from the very beginning, who will hopefully help you avoid costly delays and potentially expensive mistakes. You need advice from people who have been there and done it!
There will be late nights, weekends and holiday time spent painting, making trips back and forth to the local DIY store, as well as meetings with estate agents, mortgage advisors, tradesmen and property developers.
You will spend time viewing numerous properties, estate agents and Vendors will almost certainly mess you about. Deals you thought were once in a lifetime opportunities will turn out to be total duds, but nevertheless you must keep going.
Like success of any kind, in any field, you must be prepared to learn from every experience, the good and the bad, and the ugly, and know that in time, as long as you keep going, you will get smarter, more experienced and better at what you do.
We also speak from experience when we say that your future tenants may cause you some personal distress, some sleepless nights and things will not always go according to plan, but you must never give up!
Success in property is about playing the long game, fine tuning the craft of property investing and trying to have some fun along the way. Read every book and listen to every Podcast you can, attend every networking meeting you can and learn from those who have gone before you.
