10 traits of a successful property entrepreneur

10 traits of a successful property entrepreneur

These are the essential qualities you need to get results, Liam Nek, Sourced Partner franchise manager, says

Being successful in property investing is similar to riding high in other professions. That’s because there is a way of thinking and set of skills that most successful entrepreneurs and wealthy business owners share.

Regardless of your background or whether you have any experience in your chosen industry, having these personality traits will see you right. And here they are:

1. Passion
Passion is enthusiasm. It’s a love of what you’re doing and it’s also an energy giver.

Having passion for property means you’ll do whatever it takes to make it a success. Working at what you find interesting and stimulating also gives you the drive to overcome hurdles better.

2. Right attitude
You will have days, maybe even weeks, where you feel as if you’re getting nowhere - despite all the work you’re putting in.

Maybe some other source has pipped you at the post for a deal or an investor you have been courting suddenly pulls out before they go to sign for a property you’ve found. These are disappointments - not disasters - and you have to be able to pick yourself up and move on to greater things.

3. Good people skills
An important part of property investing is building your ‘power team’. This is a group of professional contacts who can help you find BMV (below market value) properties. They include estate agents, surveyors, architects and planning officers.

You have to be able to nurture these contacts and network with them regularly so that they’ll come to you with potential properties. The better your people skills, the stronger your team.

4. Proactive
Very few people succeed by sitting back and letting others get to those deals first.

In property - especially initially - you have to go out there and physically seek out BMV properties and potential refurbs for yourself. Not only is this educational in itself - and is a great way to network - but you don’t have to cut your profit if you’ve found the property and set up the deal yourself.

5. Willingness to learn
No matter whether you’re a newbie or experienced property investor, there is always something new to learn. That’s not just about different property strategies either - you have to learn what the up-and-coming locations are, where regeneration is planned, etc.

6. Optimism
Pessimism is an energy drainer and prevents you from being passionate and going out doing what you need to do.

In property, believing a deal is around every corner (or nearly) gives you the incentive to succeed.

7. Adventurous
You have to be prepared to take risks.

In property, you can minimise those risks by making sure you’ve done your due diligence and have ‘your numbers right’. Once you have more experience, you can take bigger risks, such as investing in whole developments. Often the old adage is true though - the bigger the risk, the bigger the profit.

8. Resourcefulness
In property, there’s no point spending your days looking at properties if the yields just aren’t there for investors. You’re being, what we term here at Sourced, a ‘busy fool’.

Make the most of your time by developing a plan and having laser-like focus.

9. Analytical
You need to be able to assess possible opportunities and crunch the numbers. In other words, work out how viable a deal really is. Have your contracts and process in place from start to finish.

10. Open-minded
You have to be prepared to see the potential in a property - even if at first sight you want to run.

Be open to changing course too, if you have a feeling a particular deal isn’t going to work out.

Does the above sound like you? If so, and property is your passion, then get in touch with the team at Sourced Partner. We will assist you with building a profitable property portfolio, earning you the passive income you deserve. Find out more by downloading our prospectus.
