Everyone hears someone talk about real estate investments. Lot of people have made a lot of money in real estate. Billionaires such as Donald Trump started his empire in real estate.
What does it take to become successful? I think 80% is carefully analyzing all the relevant information and acting on it. The rest 20%, is just luck. You always need to have a little luck with anything you do in investment, nothing is 100% ever!
So how do you find good opportunities? Well if you have a lot of time on your hands you can do all the research yourself and plan your investments carefully. Of course not everybody will succeed at it, but you can try.
Probably the best idea is to leave it to a professional who does this on a regular basis, he/she can guide you through the process and probably show you more than one opportunity at a time. So you get to choose the one you like most.
One of my favourite picks for Real Estate Investment at the moment is the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre
