Every successful real estate investor has a niche. They don’t just buy every property they look at. They have a  certain neighborhood, clientele, or market that they specialize in. This helps them to focus their efforts to be successful. If you are venturing into real estate investment, you need to know your niche.

Demographics

Who is in your area? What type of housing is popular? Knowing what kind of people are in your area and what they need helps you to be on your toes. When those rare properties people are dying for pop up, you can leap onto them. If you are tied up into lots of other types of properties, you may miss out on those rare deals that make you lots of money.

Local Laws
Real estate has a ton of rules. Some of these include who you can and cannot rent or sell your home to. Whether you are just selling properties or managing them, you need to know which laws effect how you handle real estate. These laws may also leave open a market that no one else is filling. If you haven’t pinpointed your niche yet, knowing the local laws can help you find a place to start.

Find the Holes

It sounds funny, but think about the holes in your yard. If you leave them, someone is going to stumble through them and twist their ankle. Instead of letting that hole trip someone up, you need to fill it. Then, that hole is just more walking ground for people. In order to be successful, that’s the way you have to look at real estate. In some areas, there are hundreds of real estate professionals. They may have the playing field pretty covered. However, there may be some holes in their service, like apartment rentals or multi-family homes. Finding those holes in the ground will help you find potential markets that no one else is working with.

Knock on Doors

Some real estate markets are just so confusing, no one knows what to do or who to talk to. In this case, go knock on doors in your favorite neighborhoods. By talking to people, and you’ll have a better idea of what your niche needs to be.

Your market or niche can be great or small. It doesn’t matter the size. What matters is how you work it!
