Investing Myth #4: Successful Investors Are Able To Time The Market

January 12, 2009

Truth: In Successful Investing, the Timing Finds You

The key here to remember, is the economy, the market, etc is all cylical.  Buying and selling opportunities are created by this ebb and flow of the cycle.

Remember, being active in the market, does not always been that you are buying and selling all the time.  You have to stay engaged in the market to understand and learn the cycles from when a market changes from a buyers to a sellers market, or when foreclosures are priced too high, or when bank inventory is high that list price is too high. 

Here in Wisconsin, we didn’t have the “booms” that other markets such as California, Las Vegas and Arizona saw, thus, we also didn’t have the same crashes.  We have seen increases in sales prices consistently throughout. Remember when looking at the cycles in the market, real estate is ALL LOCAL!

Timing isn’t about being in the right place at the right time; its about being at the right place ALL the time.

Investing myth 3: Investing is Risky, I’ll lose my money!

January 2, 2009

TRUTH: Investing, by definition, is not risky.  Yes, you may think that in the real estate market we’re in, there are huge risks.  The truth is, now is the time to buy.  Look at who is currently spending their money to buy up stocks, properties, companies…its those people that are currently wealthy.  They know that now is a great time to buy, as stocks, real estate, etc is at a low point, and the profit potential is great.

Becoming a real estate investor isn’t about taking risks. It is about having sound criteria, the patience to find the right opportunity, and a willingness to take the correct action quickly.  As a general rule of thumb, investors know how to minimize their risk, while maximizing their return.

I am an expert in my market here in south central Wisconsin.  Are you ready to become a real estate investor, let me know and I can help you by finding you the right properties at the right prices.
