There is a saying, we've all heard from time to time. It goes something like this, "It's not about what you know, it's about who you know." That may be true in business, but its not true in investing. You don't need to know anyone important to be connected with real estate investing - in order to get started. In investing, it's all about what you know, not who you know. Once you have found a good deal, you will be able to attract investors. But in order to find a good deal, you need to know how to spot one. That's the first step. Let me explain.
When looking to purchase property, perhaps you may be looking at markets - you've never visited before (Belize may be one of those markets). Spend some time reading about the various markets you want to invest in. Is their economy on the upswing? Do they have affordable properties to invest in? Can good deals be found, which offer potential profit margins? From the comfort of your own home/office, you can read about these various markets. Once you've done that, you may feel fairly certain you've found a market you want to invest in. Now you need to start looking for that awesome deal.
The first person to contact in a market area, is your local real estate professional. One that is skilled in that market area and knows the ins and outs of investing. Through this person, you will be able to obtain additional names of local experts, as well as more up to date financial information for the properties you are interested in.
Before many of my clients come to Belize, we typically have been in contact with each for months through emails. We've had numerous telephone conversations, swapping information back and forth. I have been able to do alot of the leg work and research for my clients, prior to their ever stepping off a plane.
