It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner real estate investor or a pro, sometimes it is easy to fall prey to tricks and traps that others lay for you. Instead of letting a little tricky situation get in your way, here are some tips to help you avoid getting trapped.

Don’t fall prey to pressure. It is very easy to be pushed into a deal or venture because you are a nice person. Never sign a deal without sleeping on it and talking to the people in your real estate team trusted mentor/advisor. If it can’t wait, it isn’t worth venturing into, and you know what they say if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Only invest what you feel comfortable investing. By the same token, do not invest more money than what you have available. Good deals come along all the time. If you can’t afford to pay your rent, you can’t afford to put any money into an investment. If the deal feels like it isn’t on the up and up, don’t invest a lot of money in it. Your gut is probably telling you something your head just hadn’t realized yet, and ignoring it could cost you thousands.

Get everything in writing. Although it would be nice to be able to do business on a handshake, our world just isn’t made that way anymore. A man’s word is no longer is bond, and unfortunately, it also doesn’t stand up in court like it used to either. Make sure that everything is spelled out in black and white, and get signatures, notaries, and witnesses whenever possible. It sounds silly, but you can never have too much proof or substantiating evidence if things should turn out poorly.

Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. In other words, don’t invest or spend money you don’t have yet either. When those great real estate investment opportunities come along, they will either still be there when the money comes through from the last investment sale or another great one will come along. Otherwise, you may be in the red up to your eyeballs with no way to pay it down.

These are basic ideas that have been passed along for generations, but when it comes to real estate business, they sometimes get forgotten.
