Posted by Chris Clothier on Mon, Sep 12, 2016

There are plenty of virtues that make for a successful, well-rounded real estate investor. We’d argue the one of the most important is patience. In a world that teaches us to crave instant gratification, it’s practically a lost art!

For many, real estate investment is seen as a quick fix: maybe they’re not so naive as to call it a get-quick-rich scheme, but they expect things to work out quick and easy.

Any successful real estate investor will tell you that that’s far from the truth! Any type of real estate investment—even passive real estate investment—takes time and effort before the fruits of your labor really build and begin to multiply.

Sometimes real estate investors like to stick to the numbers. We look at positive cash flow and make calculations and see where we can boost our bottom line. Sticking too close to the technical aspects of the business has its perils, though.  It can lead us to look at real estate investing as a paper endeavor where some black typing on a white sheet is all we have to worry about.  There is much more to this than simply looking at the numbers on a piece of paper.

Investing in real estate is a business of relationships, not numbers.  As a company, we absolutely believe in that message and have built each of our businesses on the backs of great people who are passionate about what they do.  Many of our team members are also real estate investors themselves, so strong relationships are something we understand very clearly!
