When you decide to invest, in anything, you have to decide what you want to invest in. If you’re already invested in real estate, and considering transitioning into multifamily or commercial properties, the amount of information available can be wildly overwhelming! Thankfully, there are so many people who have already gone through the paces and have valuable information to offer. Here are some things to remember before you embark on your multifamily investment journey.
Acquiring single family homes is easy in comparison to multifamily properties. The risk and reward are so much lower when you are talking about a single family dwelling. And the amount of work and foresight that goes into a large property is to scale; higher risk, more work. Not to put you off of the idea, but realize that it will take a lot more education, patience, and elbow grease. Unlike a single family home where you will view the property, make an offer, and either get it or not get it, you may make 100 offers on a multifamily property before you finally close on one. The paperwork alone is exponentially multiplied, and therefore it takes a great deal of time to process these kinds of deals.
Involve the People Who Need to be Involved
It is easy to think that you’ll be able to do everything yourself. But the reality is, when dealing with a project of this size, it is absolutely in your best interest to let someone who know’s what they are doing, handle the jobs that you aren’t prepared to do. Obviously, you should be involved in every step of the process, but trust your team. Let them do what they do best and use that time to do what you are most talented at. Strong leaders delegate. And running an investment team involves a lot of leadership as well as collaboration.
Like we mentioned before, there are people who have walked this road before and they can be a valuable asset to your investing future. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, to gain more education, or to plunge into the social circles of those who are investing in multifamily, commercial real estate. Learn from their successes and failures and ask the questions that will help make you successful.
