When it comes to real estate investing very few investors actually look at building their property portfolios as a real business. They need a shift in their way of thinking and to approach real estate investing more like an entrepreneur.In our opinion two of the essential keys to running a successful Real Estate Development Denver Civil Engineering are using great systems and forming great long term relationships.Entrepreneurs use proven systems and leverage off others to run their business effectively and they view their business as separate from them. They realize that they are not their business and see their business as the end product. A property developer who understands that, has a real opportunity to become very successful.When you realise that real estate development is a business and that your business is your product, you can then start to work on building your business. To build a successful real estate development business you will need to change the way you think and your approach to real estate investing.
We believe that the ultimate real estate developer is what we call a ‘Real Estate Development (RED) armchair entrepreneur’. You see, the traditional property developer still thinks that real estate development is a job. They believe that time equals work and work equals money, whereas a RED armchair entreprenuer believes that time equals equity and equity equals freedom. In other words if RED armchair entreprenuers spends the time to build equity it will allow them to get free of the business and if they want more freedom they build more equity.Traditional real estate developers still believe that they need to do the work and be part of the system whereas RED armchair entreprenuers believe that they should build great relationships and have others do the work. This enables RED armchair entrepreneurs to build their businesses much faster.When the business owner is also the hands on developer it will usually require much more hard work to make the business successful. It is much smarter for anyone considering entering into the industry to set up a business where the systems run the business, and let others run the systems. In other words the systems and other people work for you so you don’t have to.
Working on your business allows you to work on the things that really matter and that will give you the biggest return for your efforts. RED armchair entrepreneurs use systems to streamline tasks and avoid chaos so they can concentrate on growing their business efficiently.When the systems are being run by others RED armchair entrepreneurs are able to focus their attention on innovation. They can capitalize moments of inspiration and through effective communication they’re able to turn their dreams into reality.If you think about some of the great property developers, names like Donald Trump will typically come to mind however one of the biggest property developers was actually a school drop-out, Ray Kroc the founder of McDonalds. An entrepreneur with an incredible vision who worked on his business and not in his business.
