5 Things Every New Investor Should Do Before Investing In A Syndication
– NEW BLOG POST –
When you first begin to consider real estate syndication as an investment option, it can feel lonely, intimidating, or even like you’re going in blindfolded.
I personally experienced fears around investing in a real estate investment property I’d never seen, concern about how I’d get my money back, and doubt around the inability to log into an account and see my money.
These fears were addressed head-on through research. Every article I read and every conversation I had built my certainty until I began to feel confident toward taking the plunge.
If you’re considering your first real estate syndication and feeling hesitant, I recommend doing your research, connecting with other real estate investors, reading through previous deals, and taking your time.

Fed Balance Sheet at All-Time Highs…Again!
As Powell continues to hammer down on the printing press, the Fed balance sheet continues to expand, bringing it to a record high of $8.35 Trillion!!
Just a friendly reminder that as more and more dollars are printed, the inflation of the dollar continues. This is yet another reason why Real Estate plays a huge role as a hedge against the debasement of the dollar.
Book of the Month
David Schwartz an American motivational writer and coach, best known for authoring The Magic of Thinking Big in 1959. He was a professor of marketing, chairman of the department, and Chair of Consumer Finance at Georgia State University. We can not express how life changing this book has been for many of us from excuse-itus to retraining how we think. Below are some great excerpts from the book
- Think success, don’t think failure. At work, in your home, substitute success thinking for failure thinking. When you face a difficult situation, think, “I’ll win,” not “I’ll probably lose.”
- Never underestimate your own intelligence, and never overestimate the intelligence of others. Don’t sell yourself short. Concentrate on your assets. Discover your superior talents. Remember, it’s not how many brains you’ve got that matters.
- Think, “I can do better.” The best is not unattainable. There is room for doing everything better. Nothing in this world is being done as well as it could be. And when you think, “I can do better,” ways to do better will appear.
If you’re looking to build a successful company then you need to focus on thinking BIG. Even though this is a fifty-year-old book the advice in this book is second to none. The fact is, this is an excellent book that most entrepreneurs haven’t read.
