Are you planning to invest in real estate? Investing in real estate may seem glamorous, but you need specialized knowledge to become a successful real estate investor. To clinch the best possible deal while buying and selling, you should know the industry in and out. Learn as much as possible so that you know all the nitty-gritty of investing in Indian real estate markets.

Here are five tips that would make you a good real estate investor.

Learn as much as possible

As it is true of all asset classes, real estate investments provide good returns if you are an informed, prudent investor. Learn how the industry works before you enter any transaction. Learn as much as possible from all sources – internet, brokers, consultants, local dealers, and books. Keep yourself informed of the latest developments in the field, and market conditions. Meet real estate agents and industry leaders to understand the sector very well. Be attentive. Always keep your eyes open.

Secure funding

Before you even start exploring properties near to you, find ways to fund your investments. Once you make up your mind to invest in real estate, you would not want to miss a good deal because of poor funding. It is not difficult to find good investment avenues, but it is important to have good sources of funding. With the real estate market recovering, the road ahead for investors is quite promising. If you hesitate to invest in property because of lack of funding, you will miss many good opportunities. One good rule of thumb is 'only invest with money you can afford to lose'.

Purchase foreclosed property

Wise real estate investment involves purchasing properties that are priced below market value. By making minor to moderate changes to these properties, you can put them back on the market, and earn a huge profit through selling or renting it out. The Indian real estate markets are recovering. There has been a decline in the number of foreclosed properties because of its popularity as profitable investments. There are some great foreclosure deals in the property market, but you should know where to look.

Network

Real estate developers should build a large network. Meet other investors and learn from them. Read real estate investing forums on the internet.  Do not look at other investors as competitors. See them out as contemporaries and collaborate with them.  It is always good to have a good network of knowledgeable investors that you can fall back on.

Don't delay

If you are seriously considering investing in real estate, make it a full-time profession. Start today. Do not put it off. This is the best time for people to start investing in real estate - Home prices are relatively low, and foreclosure deals are still fairly easy to find.

The tips listed above will help you in being a successful real estate investor if you should make smart investment decisions, and display tremendous patience.
