Practicing Perfection

Investor Insight from Abhi Golhar THINK REALTY COACH TALKS PRACTICE, PERFECTION, AND PERFORMANCE. remember when I got my first soccer trophy. Look be- low and you can see my thrilled, ecstatic little-kid face. There is even more to that supreme joy than you can see, too, because that trophy was not easily won. I was not, shall we say, a natural athlete. In fact, I was kind of slow, kind of unco- ordinated, and kind of terrible at soccer when I first started. I love this picture because that moment was pretty much pure ecstasy for me. It was the culmination of a lot of hard work, dedication, and self-discovery. When I won that trophy, I felt like I had reached the pin- nacle of my soccer-playing perfection. In some ways, if I’m by Abhi Golhar I

completely appropriate at this point that we are talking about trends. But it’s not enough to talk about trends. You have to act on them! Here are a few examples of trends that can (and should) guide your real estate investing actions: • Building permit “action” in your area • Employment numbers • Average household size in your target market • Mortgage interest rates • Average rental rates • Occupancy rates Whether you want to wholesale houses, rehab-to-rent, fix-and-flip, build-to-rent, build-to-retail, or invest in com- mercial or multifamily properties, these local trends matter. Taking the time to research them and perfect your knowledge about them will yield huge results for you. You will get better at understanding how your market works, which is good for your returns, and you will develop a reputation for your expertise, which is good for your network. And speaking of your network, one of my favorite things to do in real estate is partner up. You can get so much more done so much faster. The best way to have lots of options for partnering up, also known as joint venturing or “JVing,” is to have a reputation for knowing what you are talking about! Once you start to really understand how these trends are changing in your area, share that knowledge! You might start a meetup group, begin recording a podcast, make videos for YouTube, Facebook, or your personal website, or write arti- cles on the topic. If you are not creating content, no one will know who you are. Make sure your content spotlights just how good you are in your market, and the opportunities will pour in. •
