Many factors come into play when we are RE investors that help determine why we do what we do at any particular time.  Different factors may cause us to pivot into a different direction, use a different niche one time or many times over a period of time as “life happens”.

Such factors may include:

  • having no extra money, so you started wholesaling as an entry point into investing. 
  • having a full time job and limited spare time
  • having little knowledge of various niches (landlording, rehabbing, flipping, etc)
  • having no skills or time to do your own rehabs or maintenance, but not enough money to pay someone else
  • having analysis paralysis
  • having no experience and afraid to ask for help
  • having money but don’t know how to use it in the most effective way
  • been there, done that” mode—-tired of rehabbing, want to do something passive
  • age, physical changes that cause you to “rethink” your plan for the future
  • having enough investment assets to live on, quit your job, now what?

Being around a group of successful and supportive RE investors makes all the difference in the world. Greater Houston REIA is that group of friends who can appreciate what you are thinking and going thru as you try to figure out your path.  This goes for new investors (starters) intermediate investors (builders) and advanced, experienced investors (Enders).  We ALL pivot and make changes along the way.

Join us Saturday September 10 to hear a panel of local Greater Houston REIA investors of all levels who want to share:

  • Their stories
  • Their challenges
  • Reasons for changes,
  • What worked & what didn’t,
  • Where they started and where they are now and WHY.
