What is Your Investor Personality?

What is Your Investor Personality?

You’re probably reading this because you’re as addicted to click-bait quizzes as most people on social media. In real estate, however, all those investor personality quizzes won’t do you much good. Spoiler alert: there are two investor personality types, and you can be both at any given moment.

Personality A: The Wealth-Builder

Property investors who play it smart earn 12-30 percent ROI, depending on risks and market timing. That’s a sizable advantage over stock market investment returns, which average about 3-9 percent annually. Real estate investing builds wealth, and more risky strategies like flipping can build it more quickly. Investors who are risk-averse, however, might stay more in the second personality type most of the time.

Personality B: The Retirement Plan

Long-term investors are those who are focused on building wealth for the long-term, specifically, for retirement. Creating a portfolio that will make ends meet after going on a fixed income is a naturally risk-averse venture—no one wants to bet their future on something that might result in a loss. Retirement Planners opt more often to buy and hold safer investments, staying out of the property trading arena as much as possible.

How To Be Both A and B

Different seasons and goals may require diversification of an investment portfolio. Just like when investing in the stock market, it’s a good idea to periodically re-evaluate your goals, portfolio growth, and income potential and take a multi-faceted approach to real estate investing. As long as you stick with the tenets of smart purchasing—due diligence, property management to maximize profits, and actionable exit strategies—keep on changing things up as much as you want. It’s your dollar at stake, and ultimately, your bottom line that stands to gain from smart investing.

For the bulk of my childhood (from 1980-2001, in fact), the slogan of the United States Army was, “Be All You Can Be!” It was a tremendously successful marketing campaign created by E. N. J. Carter while at the advertising firm N. W. Ayer & Son. I remember seeing posters in malls and on college campuses. There were television commercials—tons of them— radio spots, t-shirts, and even action figures of unnaturally endowed men proudly sporting the sexy slogan. What contr...
Recently, a close friend of mine asked me, "what does professionalism mean to you & how does it pertain to our apartment industry? I want our company to be more 'professional' and I want to better understand what that means." THIS - from one of the smartest most professional people I know? I took the question seriously.My first attempt: Duh! Professional is... you know, someone who conducts business in a professional manner - you know - a professional!! It's one of t...
