Step 2. Determine where you are on the Journey to investing in Commercial Real Estate?
There is no single Path for every real estate investors to take as they transition into Commercial Real Estate.
In my experience, there are 3 Primary Stages - based on Capital, Experience, Knowledge and Time. To help you determine where you are at- the least subjective measurement is Capital (money available to invest now).
Your Focus could be:
1. Making Money to grow your net worth fast. You have the time and desire to find properties and add value.
2. Growing your money you likely have a good amount saved and are concerned with growing it safely and predictably. Or,
3. Keeping your money, you've amassed a sizable nest egg, and you're concerned with protecting it for future generations.
