On my drive today, I was thinking about the importance of making decisions, especially when it comes to making offers. Many people are afraid to make mistakes, and I see this happen a lot with new investors. It’s easy to get stuck in analysis paralysis, trying to anticipate things but then it prevents you from taking actions and closing deals. I’m going to give you a real simple formula to follow in case you’re struggling with this, along with some examples.
With vacant land, it’s common to see prices that are listed high, so you need to validate the number. When you’re looking at your numbers and the data and you’re getting confused, pick the lower or higher number based on what you’re trying to do. If you’re looking at a house and are assessing the number of repairs needed, the higher number of your estimate is going to be the more conservative one. And with land, it’s often going to be the lower one. Remember, you make a profit when you buy, not when you sell. Don’t be afraid to get rejected on your offers. It’s all just a numbers game, so the more you get out there, the more you learn and the more deals you’ll wind up doing.
Listen and learn:
- A simple formula to use to get out of offer analysis paralysis.
- Why you should always choose the more conservative price when making an offer.
- Why you shouldn’t be afraid of your offers being rejected.
