Laura Alamery’s Secrets Revealed – My Top Real Estate Investing Tools
Real estate is a relationship business where knowledge matters. As we’ve seen in recent months, real estate has staying power even in times of economic uncertainty. Whether you are just launching your real estate investing business or want insight into how to grow your business, real estate coaching and mentoring offers you a leg up.
One thing I’ve learned over the years is that the right real estate investing tools are essential for success. With the right tools, you save time, money and avoid costly mistakes. My real estate investing coaching and mentoring clients receive a list of my favorite industry tools. Yet, I’ve decided to share my list of top real estate investing tools with you!
My #1 Tool
My biggest piece of advice and top tool for real estate investing is strong connections within the industry. This includes networks, coaching, events and more to keep you connected. I can’t say it strongly enough. No other tool will matter if you aren’t invested in the industry.
When I started out in real estate investing, training and coaching were non-existent. I had to figure out how to enter the male dominated field of real estate investing without all the resources and tools available today. Therefore, I am passionate about sharing what I know with other investors.
I offer real estate coaching and mentoring. In addition, I offer live events, training and more to help real estate investors thrive in this industry. I know first-hand that success in real estate investing is not only possible, but it’s probable with the right knowledge, relationships and tools.
Tools to Stay Organized
Success is in the details with real estate investing. From managing marketing activities to closing transaction requirements, a real estate investing business has many daily tasks. Most investors, especially new investors, can’t afford full-time employees. However, with the right tools, you can access help without a full-time commitment.
I like to work with freelancers I locate via online tools. The relationship is a win-win. I reach out when I need help and the freelancer works within their available schedule.
- VA4REI, which stands for Virtual Assistant for Real Estate Investors. This site provides access to trained and experienced virtual assistants with a focus on real estate investing.
- Upwork, which offers a variety of freelancers across various job functions. From social media to outbound callers to copywriters, you’ll gain access to experienced professionals on an as needed basis.
The key is that you don’t have to do all the work yourself. You can connect with people that have the right skills to help you succeed.
Tools to Create Efficiency
As your business grows, you don’t want to waste time. Instead, use tools that offer efficiency for your processes. For example, create ease by allowing reliable and trusted online document signing. Or, improve your marketing with lead generation and email marketing tools. The resources are available to help you grow.
I have several tools I use to make my daily tasks easier and my business run smoother. In addition, using standard tools makes it easier for a virtual assistant or other freelancer to help you out without having to learn new systems.
