Investing In Real Estate: Quality Over Quantity

Investing In Real Estate: Quality Over Quantity


There is a natural instinct that drives investors to get involved in as many deals as possible. They are typically under the assumption that the more deals they close, the more money they will make. This is true if every deal ends up being a home run, but more often than not, some deals will require much more time and effort just to scrape a small profit. The energy you spend on these deals would be better served focusing on prime deals that will yield greater returns. The experience you gain working on these smaller deals is nice, but over time you will learn that quality is better than quantity.

Getting a call from your Realtor about a new property that you may be interested in is almost like Christmas morning. You can feel the excitement and you will do everything to make the deal work. However, some properties are just not worth the time, money, energy and expense. There is nothing wrong with making a small profit on a deal, especially if you are slow, but if working on this deal takes away from a bigger prize you need to evaluate if it is worth it. After all is said and done and everyone and everything is paid for, your bottom line might not justify working on smaller deals when bigger ones are available.

This decision will largely be based on your pipeline and current situation. You may be very content working on twelve deals a year when other investors only want to work on six juicy ones. The problem with working on more suspect deals is that your margin for error is much less when there is less meat on the bone. If something goes wrong with your budgeting, expenses or the property doesn’t sell at the price you expected, you may find yourself in trouble. Instead of making a small but acceptable profit, you are now forced into looking at plan B, which could mean renting the property or re-listing at a discount. Subsequently, you are looking at even less profit, more headaches and less capital for your next deal. Ultimately, you will end up regretting that you got involved in a deal with very little upside and a lot more risk.

There are certain rehabs that are worth making a little less on if you can gain valuable experience or develop a relationship with a new contact. Before you get involved in any deal, you need to establish what your goals are with the deal. This may sound obvious, but some deals are done for the bottom line while others are done to add another block to your portfolio and even others are done to develop relationships. Once you determine this, you should evaluate whether your time and money are worth the risk and the return. If you are comfortable with what you have to give up in return for the reward, the deal will most likely make sense.

Doing a few solid deals a year with good people is much safer than trying to chase smaller deals throughout the same period. There is nothing wrong with hitting singles on deals, but those deals often result in strikeouts. There is plenty of business to go around, as not to chase questionable deals. In real estate investing, quality is always better than quantity.

  2. In the first instance, the Republican debate does not prevaricate on The Monarchy, but we Australians. Nor should it seek its footing on the marriage of Kate and Wills.The Republic is OUR business. Not Britain’s.

  3. Well, I finally got 12.3 to install. To do it, I had to use system restore. It appears that SubInACL will not work for Win 7 or 64 bit systems, at least the way it is set up right now.Hopefully this will not crash for me, and I’ll be happy with it.

  4. Ico,Quem ganhar 3 ou 4 corridas leva esse mundial, tamanha é a quantidade de pilotos com chances reais. Sem citar os 02 da Mercedes, vou citar cinco: Nada Sei, Massa, Hamilton, Button e Vettel.Considerando-se que faltam 17 provas, é mto cedo para considerar o Queixudo fora do páreo. Competência ninguém duvida que ele tem. A questão é o carro. E só.Abs.

  5. It's interesting to think about what you can and can't say without being called a crank or a conspiracy kook.For instance, saying that the US government and media lied to get us into the Iraq war is okay to say. Of course, everyone concedes that now, but even in before the war in 2002-2003 you could still basically get away with saying it, although you didn't hear it too much on TV.No, it is not true that everyone concedes that the governmedia lied to justify the invasion of Iraq. Where I live, only a distinct minority has been able to grasp this fact.

  6. Well, Patrick, I wrote holidays and meant it. Hanukkah is the other holiday in the gift-giving season. (Admittedly, there aren’t a whole lot of Hanukkah carols.) I was being literal, not politically correct.

  8. O festival de Woodstock é mágico. Até hoje me pergunto como aquilo tudo não acabou numa pancadaria generalizada como aconteceu apenas alguns meses mais tarde no show dos Rolling Stones no circuito de Altamont e também no festival da Ilha de Wight em 1970. Em Agosto de 1969, aquela moçada não queria brigar, só queria ouvir sons legais. Isso é que foi mágico.Pra mim, o show mais arrasador de todo o festival foi o da Janis Joplin. Ela simplesmente matou a pau em todas as músicas!

  9. No, if that were the case then there wouldn’t bee any rats in the world because the males are always after the females. If she is close to having the babies then it would be better if she weren’t with the male, but if that isn’t possible then they might still get along okay once she has them, but you shouldn’t do that to her… Was this answer helpful?
