Tips for beginners in real estate investment - Colombo, Sri Lanka
Take a long term view. Successful property investors take a long term view of the property market. Many of the budding investors that have failed, have failed because they wanted to make a quick buck. If you are serious about learning how to become a landlord and being financially independent, then you have to take a long term view. This will help minimise your risk and will stop you from wanting to bail out if the property market goes through a bad patch. Be careful of using property investment companies. There are a host of companies that claim to be able to buy investment properties for beginners, so that novices don't have to do any of the work themselves. Some of these companies are good, many are terrible and a few are crooks. I would advise you to learn the basics about what equates to a good property investment first, before you trust others to buy investment property for you. That way you can access the properties that they put in front of you and you will be able to tell if they are good or not, without being totally reliant on what the investment companies tell you. If you are a beginner to making money from property, then by following the tips laid out here, you should be more equipped to go out and start hunting for those Bargain Properties. Keep in mind that people progress at different speeds and don't get caught up in the thought that if you don't become a millionaire in one month through property, then it's not going to happen.
