Real Estate Investment Training, is it Necessary?

Updated on December 1, 2011

Real Estate Investment Training

People think that if you want to invest in the real estate industry, you need a formal real estate investment training to learn the ropes. This is sort of true but you might want to learn real estate and get a course in real estate from credible real estate advisors and gurus. The world is full of opportunistic and two-faced people and they will tell you things you want to hear and how they want you to succeed in real estate, all for their own benefit. Real estate investment training is a part of your investment itself. Below are some of the things you should verify about your real estate investment training advisor.

The Key to Find Credible Real Estate Advisors is Common Sense

How to Find a Real Estate Investment Training Guru that Won't Dupe You

  1. How they project their self. Successful real estate investment training advisors need not flaunt their success through flashy clothes, expensive jewelry, and cars. Usually, real estate gurus who do this are the one who needs attention because they are selling something which is their self.
  2. How they see their self. A credible real estate investment training advisor can be easily known by how he portrays himself. Another thing is advisors well-known for the success they have in real estate is what will portray their credibility, not some vague description on their bio-data that they are the “number 1 real estate advisor in the U.S.”
  3. The real estate industry like other big industries has its own dangers. And credible real estate investment training advisors know that because they learn from their own mistakes after getting away, their investments unscathed from these dangers. You know somebody’s not telling you the whole truth behind the real estate industry if all that they tell you are the positive things or how you will succeed. It’s better if you learn from the mistakes of others than losing your hard-earned investment.
  4. A credible real estate investment training advisor has to understand and respond to legislations, economic trends, court decisions what have you. And a great example is when the Tax Reform Act of 1986 was passed. Real estate gurus who B.S. people see this as merely a “challenge” and this pertains to tip number 3. Credible real estate investment training advisors on the other hand knows this is the worst tax law for real estate investors.
  5. Credible real estate investment training advisors use different techniques, depending on the different situations in real estate. And they explain to their client why it’s necessary to use that technique, even telling its advantages and disadvantages. Bad real estate gurus on the other hand believe in the saying “if you can’t convince them, confuse them.”
  6. Bad real estate gurus emphasizes on the motivational part of real estate. Real estate is much more than that. Real estate is a science where you have to learn from your mistakes to learn. Try to learn from real estate investment training advisors who have been there and done that.
  7. To determine if your real estate investment training advisor is telling the truth if they tell you that they are always using the techniques they teach you, ask the address of their properties. Many bad real estate gurus don’t respond back when you ask them this question.
  8. Bad real estate gurus who will take advantage of your investment will tell you that they will invest in your deals if you will allow them. Never allow this to happen. Credible real estate investment training advisors are just willing to help you with your deals.
  9. If you think your real estate guru will take advantage of your deals and investments, research on the web. Check their websites. Are the testimonials just too good to be true? Forget them they will dupe you ‘til you got nothing. Credible real estate investment training advisors will tell you both ups and downs of the industry.

      Would you jump into anything without any training? Especially if it were risky?

      Real estate isn't something you want to learn on the fly -- the dollar figures are huge and the downside can be as well. Recommend you work with a reputable broker for professional assistance (like we do at !) to avoid the pitfalls.

      I started investing in real estate in the mid-1990's. Training is essential, but remember, if the "guru" really had a bullet-proof method for making millions in real estate investing, why does he need to subsidize his income by "teaching you the secrets of real estate"?

      Before you spend hundreds of dollars to attend a rah-rah seminar, you should read a few books on the subject. I started with Robert Allen's, "Nothing Down For The 90's" and "The Florida Landlord's Manual" by Thomas Lucier.

      I earned my real estate license after I bought my fourth investment property. Getting my license opened my eyes to some of the mistakes I had made while I was just an amateur investor. My advice is to get your real estate license first, before you start investing in real estate. You will have a better understanding of real estate law, contracts, financing concerns and tax repercussions.

      Training is the only way to acquire knowledge fast. Avoid crucial mistake etc. Training not ensure success. We need to take action to prove it and we will have our own success story.
