Over the last 7 years I have worked with hundreds of property investors and there is one common regret that many of them have. It may come as a surprise but the biggest regret is always….
“I wish I had started sooner”
Sometimes people expand further and add I also wish I had invested more once I started. Now hindsight is a wonderful thing but I am yet to meet anyone with a crystal ball so I always reassure my investors it’s not what you’ve done that matters it’s what you are going to do now. In fact these investors should be applauded because making any first investment is a big step. Yes, they could have made more money by investing earlier and with more intensity but they are already on the road to success and the regret becomes experience which in turn can be used as knowledge.
But what if you have yet to invest at all?
Learn from those who have invested already and don’t let your excuses get in the way of you investing. There are plenty of excuses out there and I have heard them all!
- I don’t have the time
- I don’t know what to do
- I don’t have the contacts
- I don’t have the money
- I can’t find a deal
- Lending is tough
- There is too much choice
- And many, many more
If you are serious about property investment, you would find a way.
And when you finally invest, you will have the same regret as all investors have….. Why didn’t I start sooner?
