What Does a Real Estate Mentor Do?

In the unpredictable world of real estate, an experienced mentor’s support can be a valuable asset. Real estate mentors (also known as real estate advisors) use their own experience in the real estate industry to guide aspiring investors and founders as they learn how to start investing in real estate.

What Is Real Estate Investing?

Real estate investing traditionally involves purchasing, managing, and renting and/or selling property to generate income. Real estate can be an exceptionally lucrative market, with numerous passive income strategies that make it possible to build wealth over time. 

However, real estate is also an industry that comes with a high degree of risk. It’s important to understand the challenges real estate investors typically face, such as fluctuating interest rates. Having a commercial real estate mentor by your side can help you approach investing with a sound plan to address potential setbacks.

Real Estate Startups vs. Proptech Startups

Real estate startups and proptech startups are often lumped into the same category, but there are some important differences between the two.

How Can You Start Investing in Real Estate?

It’s not easy to learn how to invest in real estate. Here are a few tips to help you get started:

1. Choose the right real estate investing platform.

There are many different platforms and online marketplaces that connect investors with real estate opportunities. Select a platform that aligns with your investment goals and offers access to quality deals. Popular options include Groundfloor, EquityMultiple, and Fundrise.

2. Select your location wisely.

Another important consideration is where to invest in real estate. Real estate markets vary significantly across different locations; different states or even zip codes often have different property taxes or significant imbalances in growth potential. You should conduct thorough market research to determine which geographic areas best align with your investment strategy.

3. Invest in REITs.

There are many other ways to invest in real estate besides buying up residential properties. If you’re wondering how to invest in real estate with little money, REITs might be your best bet.

Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) allow everyday investors with limited funds to pool their money and invest in a portfolio of income-generating properties. REITs are also great for inexperienced real estate investors because they allow you to invest in property without having to directly purchase or manage it yourself.
