Importance of Education

If you have previously purchased your first home or even started looking at income properties, I am sure you remember when it first closed. I certainly do. It was a great feeling to sign those documents and truly own my first property, but many investors also feel unsure of what they are doing in terms of a long-term investment strategy. After all, you don’t know what you don’t know.

The key to success in any business is education and planning. The first step is to learn as much about your subject matter as possible, which will provide you with confidence when doing current and future deals. In this case, it’s learning to use 2-4 unit properties to make successful investments to secure your financial future.

I’m a big believer in education and that’s one of the reasons I teach at UCLA Extension and around the country, training folks on 2-4 unit properties. It is also why I launched my program and have now built the tools that every investor—no matter how experienced—needs to succeed in real estate investing.

I’ve had the opportunity to work with and train thousands of investors and real estate agents over the past few years and the most consistent feedback I hear is that the training they received provided them with the confidence they needed to work with income producing investment property. Remember, knowledge is power and the perfect first step to securing your future is to gain the knowledge so you can make the best investment decisions possible.
In addition to books, DVDs, webinars, and financial models to analyze investments, I also offer one-on-one coaching to help investors effectively sort through their real estate investment opportunities. Click here for more information on this proven real estate investment training program.
