How To Grow Your Real Estate Business Like The Pros

Real estate moguls are not made overnight. For as much as you may desire to have more deals than you can handle, there is a process. Success isn’t just handed out. Remember to respect the system. There is nothing wrong with working on one deal at a time, and growing your business methodically. Grow your business properly, and your business will reward you accordingly. Every new investor wants to close their first couple of deals yesterday, but that is not always realistic. Here are five ways on how to grow your real estate business at your own pace:


  • 1. Keep Expenses Down: The way business is done has changed over the years. In the past, if you wanted to open a business, the first thing you did was look for office space. For today’s real estate investor, this is hardly a necessity. With the way technology has advanced, you can probably do everything you need to make an offer from your phone. There is a temptation to have everything lined up perfectly before you make an offer.
  • 2. Look Locally: Instead of searching for properties within a 100 mile radius, cut that search in half. In most markets there are more than enough deals – if you are willing to find them. If you are hitting a wall and are having trouble generating leads, the problem could be with how you are searching.
  • 3. Start Small: It is important not to spend over your budget on your first couple of deals. There is nothing wrong with looking for properties $75,000 and under. In fact, these types of properties can offer a greater return. One entry to the real estate world that is often overlooked is by buying a two-family property.
  • 4. Smart Marketing: There is a temptation to blindly dump money into marketing to get your business jump-started. Marketing can be a great way to generate leads, but you need to do it wisely. For starters, you need to know just how much volume you can handle. You will be wasting money if you can’t fully work every lead you get. It is far better to work on a smaller marketing idea with the commitment to do it several times. You don’t need to break the bank to generate leads either. There are several free options that can do the trick.
  • 5. One Deal At A Time: In time, you will be ready to take on a handful of deals. Until you get to that point, work on one deal at a time. Understand the ins-and-outs of every aspect of the transaction. Ask questions along the way until you are confident that you know what you are doing. After you complete one deal, you will be ready to take on the next one. Keeping your pipeline full is always important, but it doesn’t do you much good if you don’t know what you are doing. Until you understand the process and how to work on multiple deals, stick with one deal at a time.
