The knowledge and skills required for each of these disciplines is essential for establishing an Apartment Investment Business that not only competes in the marketplace but thrives.
Learning the material and passing the quizzes and final exams involved in the programs not only ensures your understanding of what it takes to be successful in the Apartment Investment Business but gives you a competitive advantage against those who simply focus on doing transactions or those looking to build their business without this knowledge.
Nelson Mandela once said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change your world.”
Many investors spend years, a lot of money and blood sweat and tears learning from unguided experience. Experience can be a good teacher but she can also be a very cruel teacher.
You don’t know what you don’t know until it becomes an issue and in apartment property investing, learning what you don’t know can become very costly in lost deals, non-performing deals, and missed opportunities, not to mention emotional turmoil.
The Apartment Investment industry is populated by educated professionals: real estate brokers, property managers, bankers, lenders, attorneys, appraisers, or contractors. These people want to do business with other educated professionals and don’t waste their time with those that don’t know the business. Why? Because their livelihood, their income, is dependent upon whether or not a deal closes.
They gravitate to those investors who demonstrate their professionalism and knowledge of the business. If you have ever been asked for a proof of funds, then you did or said something to trigger the “warning” signal in that professional’s mind. Which means, you didn’t come across as a professional yourself. The worst part is, you don’t know what you said or did because you don’t know what you don’t know.
