5 investing mistakes I made so you don’t have to

I’ve been investing in real estate for over 15 years, and I’ve learned A LOT of lessons along the way.

But there are FIVE INVESTING MISTAKES that I could have avoided if I had only known better.🤦🏻‍♀️ 

Today, I’m sharing them with you so that they don’t hold you back from reaching your goals.

1. Under-improving properties

We tried to save money, but it ended up costing us later in both time and money. 

👉 LESSON — Do a proper remodel. Never cut corners even if you think you can. 


2. Paying for inspections prior to anyone seeing inside

We lost over $30k in inspection fees before ever seeing the condition. 

👉LESSON — Always have someone get into units prior to paying for inspections.


3. Flipping vs holding

We’ve missed out on over $3M worth of equity accumulating by flipping versus holding. 

👉 LESSON — Buy and hold! Earn tax-free income through cash-out refinances or scale up using 1031 exchanges.


4. Playing small for too long

We purchased our first commercial property in 2018. That’s 11 years after we started investing!

👉 LESSON — Think bigger, surround yourself with people who are living a big life and doing big things.


5. Trying to time the market

Multiple times I thought the market would crash and sold properties sooner than I should have, and regretted doing so. 

👉 LESSON — Time IN the market is a far better strategy than timing the market.
