Real Estate Investing The Easy Way With Tom Sylvester
Have you ever been driving down the road and turned a corner and all of the sudden found yourself somewhere else?
Have you ever known where you were going a little bit late in life, but by some stroke of luck found yourself there sooner than you expected?
For some people, their business journey can be similar. They have a vision for where they are going and only go forward when they're sure of the direction they are taking.
But what if your business journey is anything but clearheaded and logical?
What if your goal constantly changes with every curveball that life throws your way?
That's the exact moment you need to take action – without hesitation, without second-guessing, without looking back.
You need to take action before it's too late and build your LLC business from the ground up again.
Start With A Vision
Vision is essential for any business owner to have. Without one, you can’t possibly know where your company will go and what direction it should take.
If you aren’t sure where your company or product will be a few years from now, don’t make that decision today.
Make plans on how to get there and start with a vision — and only go forward if you’re sure of the direction you’re taking.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the moment and let your current circumstance dictate your path, but this isn’t necessarily a good thing.
In order to grow your company or product, you need a clear vision of where you want to go.
Doing this requires identifying what lies ahead and being ready for anything that may come your way.
You need to stay proactive in order not to become paralyzed by fear and indecision.
What Is Your Vision For Your Business?
This question is important because it will give you an idea of where you are now and where you want to go.
If you have no vision for your business, there is no way for you to know where you are going or even how far you should go.
You will just end up making mistakes and not being able to take the necessary steps to bring your vision to fruition.
Getting a clear vision of where you are now and where you want to go will help you focus your energy on the things that are most important and give you a better chance of success.
Be Very Clear About It.
While it might be nice to have a vision of where you want your business to be in five or ten years, or even in one year, you will only be successful if you have a clear vision of where you are now and where you want to go.
This means being very specific about what you want to do, who you want to do it with, and when.
What are you willing to do for your company, for your customers, for your community, for your life?
Be very clear about this.
If you are not specific about where you are now and where you want to be, then you will have a very hard time creating the future you desire.
Set Actionable Goals That You Can Easily Measure And Evaluate.
If you have no idea where you are going, or where you want to go, then you will have a very hard time creating the future you desire.
You will be too worried about getting there and not enough about where you are.
Actionable goals will help you focus your energy on the things that are most important and will help you get closer to your vision.
For instance, if your vision is to have a profitable company by a certain time or year, you need to set measurable goals that you can easily update if things are not going as planned.
Build A Team That Believes In Your Vision.
All great organizations have great teams. For your team to do its best, you need to have a clear vision of where you want to go and how you want to get there.
If your team doesn’t have a clear vision of where you want to go, then it will be very hard for your team to advance together and toward your vision.
This will not only lead to confusion and conflict on the field, but it will also likely cause your organization to fail.
To have a successful team, you need to have a clear vision of where you want them to go, who they are supposed to be working with, and what they are supposed to be working on.
You need to have a clear strategy for how you want your team to advance together, and if you don’t have one, then you will just have a lot of confusion and struggle on the field.
Create A Strategy
Make Your Property Listings Easy To Find.
Real estate listings can seem daunting, but they don’t have to be! To make the process easier, list your properties using a search engine that knows your location.
This way, buyers and sellers will be able to find you easily. If you don’t have listings that are easy to find, or if you have a hard time explaining your listings, you may want to consider changing your business model.
You can always add more listings by searching on Google, Bing, or other search engines.
This is a great way to drive traffic to your website, and it will help you build brand recognition.
If you are willing to put in the effort, you can even try creating your own online classifieds to bring more traffic to your listings.
Communicate Your Message Clearly.
When marketing your properties, make sure to clearly explain the services you provide and what you’re offering.
This includes your fees, duration of services, and the level of service you provide.
When writing your descriptions, make it easy for potential clients to understand the services you offer.
You can Start with an outline or point out the main features of your service.
When writing the testimonials for your listings, make it clear what the client experience was like, and how they liked their experience.
You can also include your videos and photography to advertise your services.
It is important for potential clients to be able to see what you have to offer, and how they can benefit from your services.
Hire Only Proven Professionals.
You are likely to find some defects in your real estate business model, but the vast majority of problems can be solved through good planning, hard work and perseverance.
In some cases, you will need to hire professionals to help with financial analysis, property appraisal and marketing strategy.
However, you should only hire proven professionals with proven track records in real estate.
Avoid hiring anyone who has only worked in other industries, because they may not have the required experience to suit your particular needs.
Avoid hiring anyone who is less than three years out of real estate school.
A high-quality digital marketing strategy will do more than meet the eyes of potential customers.
It will leave them feeling confident and ready to make a purchase.
Have A Process In Place That Works For You.
Real estate success requires a well-practiced, iterative process. This means that you should repeat the process, growing and improving upon the process as you go.
This includes the planning process, execution process and evaluation process.
You can find numerous examples of real estate planning throughout the world.
The planning process should be as thorough as possible, but still keep things simple.
The execution process should be straightforward and user-friendly.
You should plan the way that you commonly think, so that you don’t waste time and energy on things that you might not need to. This can be a little irritating, but it is what it is.
The evaluation process should be based on results and should take into account factors such as the success of your marketing campaign, the number of properties you have listed and the state of the market
Set Aside Time And Focus On What’s Important.
If you are willing to put in the effort, you can become successful in real estate.
However, it will take time, dedication, and a lot of hard work.
Focus your time on the most important things in your real estate business—planning, marketing, selling, and managing your properties.
Don’t try to do too much with little time left over. This is not going to work out well for you.
Remember—if you put in the work, the rewards will come in the form of increased sales, increased profit, and increased referrals.
Set Realistic Financial Goals.
When you first start out in real estate, your goals may be very different from those of your future self.
When you first start out in business, your primary goal should be to set financial goals for yourself.
Write them down and keep them in a safe place where you can see them every so often.
There are many ways to go about this, from writing down monthly expenses to tracking your bank account.
When you have financial goals set, it will help you to stay focused and on-task.
You can also refer to the personal finance tips to remind you of how your money works.
Get That First Property!
Once you have established your business, you need to get your first property.
While it may not be as glamorous as owning and running a luxury vacation home or a brand-new car, getting your first property can lead to a successful and profitable real estate investing career.
If you have a solid understanding of the real estate market and know what kind of properties investors are interested in, buying property could be the perfect way for you to make money.
You don’t have to be an expert in finance or math to get started with property investing.
All you need is a little bit of capital, some experience, and the drive to succeed!
You probably already have an idea of what kind of properties you would like to buy but doing some research on potential investments can turn that into a profitable business venture.
Key Members Of A Business: Marketing, Sales, Fulfillment and Operations
Every business team has a few key players that are well-versed in how the team functions and what its objectives are.
These members can help you decide who to hire for specific positions on your team.
These key members are the marketing team, sales team, fulfillment team and operations.
You’ll often find these members in headquarter locations.
These members are responsible for creating and managing the overall brand image of your business.
This includes creating marketing materials, setting up business meetings, and managing social media.
One Team One Goal
One of the best ways to ensure that your business team members are on the same page is to have them work together regularly.
Invite your team members to meet in person every so often and bring a meeting note or two so everyone knows what was discussed.
If you decide to use a software solution, have your team members use it together.
This will help you spot problems early on and make sure that everyone is on the same page.
Know Your Numbers. Profit and Loss Financial Statement
A profit and loss statement (P&L) is a financial statement that measures the company’s profitability and financial performance.
It’s one of the most important financial statements to understand for any business owner or manager.
A P&L clearly shows the breakdown of how much money a company makes and how much it costs to operate.
It also shows the risk posed by its different parts, such as revenue, cost of goods sold, and expenses.
To create a P&L, first a company needs to determine its income.
This is the income that comes in and is used to acquire new assets, pay operating expenses, and make shareholders and creditors minimum payments.
Next, it needs to determine its expenses.
This part of the P&L outlines each cost of products sold as well as other expenses related to the business's operations.
In some cases, a business merely needs to declare its income and expenditures to the IRS and need not include expenditures for assets.
This is known as a financial accountancy P&L.
