Becoming a real estate investor after selling NYC real estate for millions can be exciting and rewarding. Here are ten essential steps to consider as you transition into real estate investment:

Define Your Investment Goals:

Determine what you want to achieve as an investor. Are you looking for long-term passive income, short-term gains, or a combination?

Educate Yourself:

Take the time to learn about different real estate investment strategies, market trends, financing options, and legal considerations. Consider attending workshops, reading books, or taking online courses.

Build a Strong Financial Foundation:

Assess your financial situation and establish a solid economic base. This may involve paying off debts, improving credit scores, and building an emergency fund.



Network with Industry Professionals:

We know selling a home can be more emotional than buying one, and we’ll leverage our experience and market know-how to ease you through the process. But first we’ll uncover your motivations for selling, establish a timeline and a marketing plan, and see how your home compares with others on the market. We have a track record of proven success, and you can rely on us to be your champion and best source for solutions.

Identify Your Investment Niche:

Determine the type of real estate investment that aligns with your goals and expertise. This could include residential properties, commercial real estate, vacation rentals, or development projects.

Conduct Market Research:

Develop a Financial Plan:

Create a detailed investment plan that outlines your budget, financing options, expected returns, and risk management strategies.

Acquire Investment Properties:

Once you've identified promising opportunities, acquire properties that align with your investment strategy. Conduct thorough due diligence and consider partnering with experienced professionals.

Implement Property Management Strategies:

Develop effective property management processes to ensure smooth operations and maximize returns if you rent out your properties.

 

Stay Informed and Adapt:

Real estate markets are dynamic, so staying informed about industry trends, regulations, and economic developments is crucial. Be prepared to adapt your investment strategy as needed.
 
Remember, real estate investment requires careful planning, ongoing education, and a willingness to adapt to market conditions. It's also beneficial to seek guidance from experienced professionals as you navigate this new phase in your real estate journey.

What Keith's clients say
My fiancé and I were desperate to find a new place to live. Our previous apartment turned out to be a 9 1/2 month nightmare with a tenant above us who kept us up all night, every night. We finally were given permission by management to break our lease, so we started apartment hunting immediately. After checking out a few apartments from listings on various sights over a 3 week period, my fiancé found a l...

What Keith's clients say
I had been looking for an apartment for weeks! In New York, it is very hard to trust the apartment posts you see because a lot of the time the pictures look nothing like the actual unit. I really liked this one post-Keith had; the apartment looked lovely. I contacted Keith and he responded in minutes. It was a bit challenging to set up a time to go see the unit, due to my work schedule, but Keith told me...

What Keith's clients say
My husband and I began our apartment search on our own about three months ago. We were looking for a place that exceeded our high expectations. We reached out to Keith about an apartment in our area that was a great price for the space. He agreed to show us that place and also sent us another apartment, referring to it as "the truth." Needless to say, we had to at least see it! We liked the 1st apartment...

What Keith's clients say
Even though we ended up going through a different broker for our apartment, Keith was super responsive and helpful with the search process. He listened to our needs and suggested a beautiful building that was just a little bit out of our price range. He then proceeded to waive his fee and negotiate the rent down with the landlord for us. I really appreciated how hard he was "rooting" for us to get the ap...

What Keith's clients say
Keith is fantastic. This was my first time purchasing property and I started working with another Realtor® who was completely wasting my time and moving like a snail. Meanwhile, my lease was ending and I needed to get an accepted offer Asap. When I tell you Keith found me the perfect spot and secured it for me in 24 hours, even though there was a pending offer the man is good. He also was very responsive...

What Keith's clients say
I use Yelp to mainly read reviews but once in a while, I have an incredible experience that leads me to write a review. My significant other and I were looking for apartments in Brooklyn. Most of the places were ok but not originally what we said we'd like in a new home. One day we met up with Keith to check out an apartment, and for the first time, someone asked us what we really wanted. Keith showed us...
