Expanding your circle of contacts can put new opportunities on your radar screen, which you might have otherwise missed. You never know when someone you meet at an event or who visits your blog and watches your videos on Facebook will reach out with some information about a good deal. That is what it happened to us for last few years or so.
Most of our deals in last five years have came through networking which I have built through doing webinars, Facebook live videos and hosting events.
When you work in real estate, you are often faced with issues that require expert assistance. You might need a good contractor because your primary contractor is already busy, or a good tax adviser who understands the ins and outs of real estate taxes. You could find yourself needing a real estate agent who is familiar with a specific area to help you expand into a lucrative neighborhood. Whatever the case may be, having an established network will help you connect with the right people when you need them most.
As every investor knows, you never want to have all your eggs in one basket. Creating an extensive network will help you tap into other areas outside of real estate in your quest to generate wealth. Having a large network can set you up for the possibility of finding other types of investments as well. You might have read about all these different avenues of cash flow, but it's not always about what you know. Sometimes it's about who you know ... and you can only meet them if you network properly.
As you know that we now have our own Real Estate Investment Trust; Distinct Real Estate LP which we have been able to put it together through our networking. And that is why I highly encourage you to join my Prairie Real Estate Forum this year on March 23rd, March 24th and March 25th. We'll have a group of expert speakers and people who are already in Real Estate Investment business. This will be your great networking opportunity right here in Regina for a fraction of a price.
