How to: Succeed in property

Last updated: 12th November 2020

Success can mean different things to different people in different sectors. But for those wanting to succeed in property, it’s important to stay focused. You might not have the same goals as others, and you might not choose the same strategy as others – and that’s fine. But without goals and a focus, you’ll struggle to really understand whether you’ve ‘succeeded’ or not.

When investing in property, you need to know where you want to get to and how you’re going to get there. Put simply – goal setting.

No two investors will have the exact same goals. Sure, you’ll both want to make money from investing in property, but your motivations for doing so will be completely different.

You might want to invest for the future and build up a solid pension pot, but your best friend might hate their job and want to replace their full-time income with property as quickly as possible.

Both want to invest in property, but for very different purposes. And that will result in two very different strategies.

Always start with your goals. And there’s a free course on setting property goals here.

There is no right way to succeed in property

What’s worked for one investor isn’t necessarily going to work for you. You need to find what’s right for your goals. Here’s a couple of starting points for you:

Making sure your property goals are achievable is the one key point we want to stress here. If you set unrealistic goals from the outset, you’re more likely to fail. In this resource we talk you through setting SMART goals which will help give you some focus.

We talk about strategy – A LOT. There are so many, so it’s important to choose the right one that’s going to help you reach your property goals. We’re over 400 episodes in on The Property Podcast now, so this is a list of all the in-depth ones we’ve done on strategy so you can get straight into understanding the nitty-gritty of each one.

If you’re not sure where to start, you can sign-up to our free webinars where our team runs through everything you need to know about investing in property. These are 30-minute, jam packed live sessions with a boat load of information all about property investment.

You can see what we cover and reserve your free virtual seat right here. Not only will you leave with an in-depth understanding of goal setting, strategy planning and tips on raising cash to invest, you’ll be sent a load of free resources after the session for you to continue your learning.

Here’s everything you need to know about investing in property.
