  • How do these investors do it?
  • How do they get started?
  • What do they concentrate on?

The core of Real Estate investing involves these 3 basic principals:

  • Criteria: What you Buy
  • Terms: How you Buy It
  • Network: Who Helps You

When you deal with a complicated topic like investing in real estate it certainly helps to break things down, here we go…


Criteria describes what you buy, like a single family or multi family ? What is the construction? What are the amenities for resale or to rent? Most important is the location.  These are all the items that can’t be negotiated. Criteria is the foundation of your investment. What are the predictable opportunities of the property.  This is how you select an investment property!


Terms defines how you turn it into a deal.  Once you decide on your criteria and chose a property, the terms determine its value to you now and in the future.  These are the negotiable elements of the purchase, price, down payment, loan terms, interest rates, conveyances, occupancy and closing costs. A skillful negotiation of terms can lead to a better equity position, more cash flow and maybe both.  A millionaire real estate investor makes their money going into the deal not going out!  Terms are about understanding the financial fundamentals of the deal.


Network are all the people that help you succeed in your deal (s).  This would be Realtors, Lenders, brokers, banks, lawyers, property management firms, just to name a few. This is your dream team and leverage to make the deals happen the way they need to.  You can accomplish more with qualified help then by yourself. This a network of qualified people that will get the job done, no matter what! This is your support.

Criteria, Terms and Network – if you master these, they will give you the greatest chance of success in becoming a Millionaire Real Estate Investor.  Whether this is your first investment or you are a seasoned investor, we have all the tools and experience in place to make your deal a sound investment that you can take all the way to the bank. Is Real Estate Investing Right for You?
