REAL ESTATE BUBBLE OF 2005?
Donald Trump has to say about the latest business opportunities
found in Real Estate Investing.'

you ever wanted to become a millionaire?
so – and, if you live in the United States, there is now
a very REAL chance for you to enjoy the same opportunities as
don't need to invest in real estate to be wealthy. But, by and
large it is the easiest, most leveraged way to build real, sustainable
wealth. With mortgage rates at an all time low and tax laws favoring
real estate holdings, now is an ideal time to profit from the
greatest real estate gold rush in history.
job changes, divorce, new families, death -- the average American
moves every five to six years. And with that constant stream of
movement across the United States, more than 12 million homes
are bought and sold every year. Many of these will be great deals
that you, yourself, could be profiting from.
very same principles that make Donald Trump a fortune with New
York City skyscrapers will work for the average investor, no matter
what size the property.
precisely what can the small real estate investor learn from a
billionaire wheeler- dealer like Donald Trump? According to George
Ross, Executive Vice President and Senior Counsel for the Trump
Organization (and, of course, Apprentice co-star), one of the
cornerstones of Trump's philosophy is “Improve any location.”
that's just what Trump did in his very first real estate deal
on a foreclosure of a 1,200 unit apartment complex in Cincinnati,
Ohio. Without a penny invested, Donald and his father, Fred, were
able to turn the apartment complex around by doing some remodeling
and taking a tough stance on rent collection.
the single most valuable lesson in Donald Trump's real estate
career, he learned how the government would assist buyers in purchasing
property with little or no financial backing and how to get such
aid. His passion for real estate grew from there and he went on
to create the strategies and systems that turned his business
into an empire.
are my art form. Other people paint beautifully on canvas or write
wonderful poetry. I like making deals, preferably big deals. That's
how I get my kicks.”
New York City, the Trump signature is now synonymous with the
renowned Trump Tower, The Trump International Hotel & Tower,
The Trump Park Avenue and the Trump Building at 40 Wall Street.
He also owns golf courses in 4 states, and current projects include
the building of the biggest development ever approved by the NYC
Planning Commission .
#228 on Fortune Magazine's list of the world's billionaires, Trump
stated: “Real estate is at the core of almost every business,
and it's certainly at the core of most people's wealth. In order
to build your wealth and improve your business smarts, you need
to know about real estate.”
most obvious problem that confronts many would-be investors is
lack of know-how and/or financial resources. Common sense would
dictate that wanting to make money in real estate is simply not
enough. Knowing how to get it is the real key to success. Like
any other profitable business, it takes a proven business system.
Trump: The Art Of The Deal, ‘The Donald' gives his own assessment:
“If you take care of the downside, the upside will take
care of itself. In other words, if you have a contingency plan
for everything that can go wrong, you can't help but succeed.”
how does the average Joe or Jane actually succeed in real estate?
you can't know it all, no matter how smart, educated or experienced,
there is no way to acquire all the wisdom you need to make your
business flourish. It's precisely why 95% of franchises succeed
and only 25-35% of independent businesses fail. Wanting to make
money in real estate is simply not enough.
as Donald Trump had starting out, you need a great mentor with
a proven track record to lead the way and support your efforts…
also a proven business system that allows you to invest in all
types of real estate without ever having to tie up all your own
cash. It is wise to begin your journey using the research, experience
and wisdom of those who have been there before you.
beauty of a franchise is that it provides a proven business model
with years of experience behind it. As far afield as real estate
investing may be from starting a McDonalds, the principle is the
same. If you can find a real estate investment teaching program
that eliminates much of the trial and error and allows you to
get a quick start with a proven system, you've just found your
own golden arches.
success is bigger than any one person, no matter how well educated
or experienced that person may be. There is no reason to settle
for anything less. Once again, to quote the king of real estate:
“If you're going to be thinking anything, you might as well
think big.” Sound advice to anyone who wants to become a
