Getting the Best Possible Commercial Real Estate Advice

Commercial real estate can be tough to get a handle on and making sure you get the best commercial real estate advice can make the difference between making it and losing your shirt. Professionals and "gurus" have devoted years to identifying, financing and making deals happen no matter through all kinds of markets. Do you honestly think you're going to waltz right in and be the next Donald Trump?

Commercial real estate is a terrific way to make money, but you already knew that because you are here! So what's you're next step on the path to financial success as a commercial real estate investor?

First, get a sound knowledge base in real estate and investing principles. This could mean taking some courses at a local college or online, reading some books or attending some seminars. Obviously, a trip to Border's Books or the library is going to be cheaper than other two options, but do whatever you think is best for your unique situation. Any way you do it, you need to learn the basics of the business and know what you're getting into before you sink money into an expensive seminar, course or worse yet an actual piece of property.

The nature of available property investments differs from market to market, so the best piece of commercial real estate advice you can get is to find a mentor you guide you through it all. A good mentor, whether they are directly located in your market or not, can teach you how to spot good deals, avoid bad ones and maximize returns. They can also point you in the right direction as far as education, seminars, what you need and what's a waste of money.

Once you have a good knowledge base a reliable source of information for the type of investments you're considering, you're ready to test the waters. Find the local investors who are making your dream a reality and watch what they do. Do your best to follow their progress on deals and look at the work it takes to make it all happen. Start looking at properties and deals that are comparable to what successful commercial investors are involved in and prepare yourself for your first good deal that comes your way.
