How preparation can save you a lot of headaches when it comes to investing in real estate
And we got you covered with some great resources to help with your strategy!
Did you know? April is stress awareness month. A factoid that I hadn’t known about if I wasn’t googling “national and international awareness days” quite regularly, either as inspiration for something I am writing or to build a PR campaign around (my day job). At this point, maybe I could apply to some sort of memory contest as the candidate who is able to, from memory, recite all of the gazillion of awareness days that colleagues of mine have dreamt up at some point, in order? All jokes aside, though, stress awareness does seem like a good cause and if more attention was to be paid to it, I think we’d all be better off. After two years of a pandemic and a depressing (to say the least) news environment to boot, it seems like humanity is a bit frazzled. Collectively, we should take deeper breaths.
While strategies to keep stress at bay seem to be pretty aligned - exercise, connect to friends and loved ones, manage your screen time - there’s one item that almost never makes the list but helps tremendously in my opinion: preparation. If you prepare yourself, mentally and otherwise, for what your day, week, next project is going to throw your way, chances are you’ll be much calmer, less stressed. Which is why we have harped on about how you can best prepare yourself for a big financial undertaking - your real estate purchase. It’s a major financial decision so has all the trappings of something you could freak out about, which makes it even more important to prep well. So without much further ado, let’s get to it. How can you best prepare to make a sound investment that will change your financial future for the better?
