our real estate investing success depends on your due diligence.
a physical building and a purchase-and- sale agreement; it is an opportunity. These investor visionaries – and that is what they truly are – do the due diligence that the rest leave out. They look at the fine print: the insider infor- mation on how communities are growing and changing, the projected numbers on populations, jobs, and economic status, ways to influence the legal and legislative narrative, and even at the raw hard numbers that can be intimidating at first. Think Realty Magazine is your source for this information as the place to get the market insights and the raw numbers, a publication to recognize industry leaders that exemplify that visionary investing char- acter, and your primary (even personal) resource for training and education in the use of “the fine print.” Whether you are a visionary real estate investor with years of experience under your belt, a visionary new investor setting up your first deal, or a visionary active investor who falls somewhere in between on that spec- trum, Think Realty should be your headquarters. We strive to make it so. •

the numbers, check the title, and look for liens before you put your name on “the line” and get that deal done. If your numbers are solid, then the odds are good that you will end up with a good real estate deal on your hands. It is this black-and-white certainty that makes real estate investing so appealing. However, ultimately, it will be your decision to read “the fine print” that will make the difference between doing good deals and conducting truly great ones that dramatically affect your business bottom line, your financial legacy, and even your broader community. Real estate investors with an eye for more than “merely” decent ROI but also for influencing their futures and pursuing and supporting their passions, (real estate related and otherwise), do more than merely the standard due diligence when they are evaluating transactions. They know that each deal is more than just
