One of the most common places that potential real estate investors get hung up is on the issue of courage. They have the desire to get started making significant income through investing, property flipping, or wholesaling, but in the end the fear is bigger and stronger than their desire for a better life. They let the doubts, negative voices, and difficulties become obstacles rather than turning them into opportunities. Because of that reality, Joe felt like it would be fitting to talk to you about courage on this episode. With the new year right around the corner, you’ve got the opportunity to make some big changes in your own bottom line and change your life and the life of your family. Whether or not you’ll do it, comes down to courage.

 

Why is Courage such an important quality for a Real Estate Investor to have?

 

Simply because there are many points along the way that you can get talked out of moving forward. When it’s time to approach a potential investor you might feel timid or uncertain. That’s the time for courage. When it’s time to put your first offer on a property, you might be scared by the unknown. That’s the time for courage. When you have an opportunity that could turn out really big but are frightened by the “what ifs.” That’s the time for courage. Step after step requires that you swallow down the fear, set your jaw, and move ahead with wisdom. On this episode, Joe’s going to lead you in a couple of ways to think about the issue of courage.

 

Take a trip back in time to look at how courageous you’ve been.

 

When you look back at the business you’ve done over the past 12 months, what have been the situations that most required courage? Did you have it? Did you move ahead in spite of uncertainty or fear? If you did, what did you learn? If you didn’t, why didn’t you? What can you learn from it? Those questions and many more are what Joe Evagelisti is going to lead you through on this episode of The Flip King, to help you plan for a much better year this coming 12 months. You’re going to get a lot out of this short shot of encouragement, if you take the time to do what Joe’s suggesting.

 

Forget your year-long goals. Cut it back to 90 days. Here’s why.

 

Sometimes the reason we don’t step forward in courage when it’s time to act is because we’ve given ourselves too much opportunity to step back. Yes, you’ve given yourself the opportunity. How? By setting your goal too far into the future. You know that the step before you is one of the essential things you’ll need to do in order to reach that goal, but it seems so far away there’s no sense of urgency pushing you to act. That’s why Joe suggests that you set 90 day goals. Don’t look much further than that. It will provide you a sense of urgency that you have to act NOW to get to the goal you’re striving toward. That’s just one aspect of why 90 day goal setting is important. You’re going to get even more on this episode.

 

Look at the next 90 days and set some courageous goals.

 

Where do you want to be in your real estate business 90 days from now? Financially, in terms of funding, number of deals you’re actively working, number of contractors or employees you’ve been able to add to your team? Those and thousands of other items are options that are on the table, but you’ve got to decide what you need most in your business over the next 90 days and start setting goals and making plans. If you don’t, you’ll get more of what you’re seeing right now. If you do, you’ll move forward, advancing the success of your team and business, and building the lifestyle and legacy you want. Your friend and mentor, Joe Evangelisti has something to say to you about that on this episode. Don’t miss it.

BOOK: The Entrepreneur’s Roller Coaster

Dec 2, 2015

One of the very first steps in the process of ANY real estate investor, whether a wholesaler or fix and flip guy, is the act of making an offer on a property. If you don’t know how to make an offer according to the margins you need, that’s problem number 1. And if you know the “how” but don’t actually MAKE the offers regularly (and in volume… we’ll get to that), then that’s problem number two.

 

On this episode of The Flip King Joe Evangelisti reaches into the experience vault and pulls out his very own formula for making offers on real estate in a smart, numbers-driven way and teaches you the ins and outs, step by step. If you’re new to the real estate investing world, you’ve come upon the best starting point you could ask for on this episode. If you’re a seasoned investor, you’ve got a simple way to check yourself to make sure you’re covering all your bases when you make your offers on properties.

 

The first primary mistake real estate investors make when it comes to offers on properties.

 

The first is that they don’t know what goes into making a good offer. They shoot from the hip, act on gut feelings about properties and hunches about the local market. That may wind up getting you some properties that you can actually turn a profit on, but it will also get you broke in a hurry.

 

You’ve got to know EXACTLY how to make an offer that matches your local market and takes into account all the variables such as investor returns, costs for rehab, your profit, and a lot more. If you don’t, you’re asking to lose money and fail at real estate investing. It’s that simple. So listen up… Joe’s going to give you his EXACT formula for calculating offers. He calls it his “Maximum Allowable Offer.” If you follow this strategy, you’ll never get in over your head or cut your margins too close - and you’ll find yourself making good money on your deals once they’re accepted.

 

The second mistake made on real estate offers.

 

Even if you know how to calculate a maximum allowable offer it’s not going to do you a bit of good if you don’t actually make offers on properties. That’s the second mistake. And understand this: you can’t just make an offer here or there, you’ve got to be searching out offers and writing many, many offers. Whatever you’re doing now, double it. That’s easy to do. Joe refers to this as making offers “in volume.” It’s how you get to cherry pick the deals that are out there, how you get the opportunity to make more money, faster. You’ve got to take smart action to get your business rolling forward. This episode is full of practical advice. You’ll be smart if you take it.
