There are a lot of real estate seminars out there. Being offered day after day. Even in the mail, you probably get a pitch at least once a week or once every two weeks for a real estate seminar that you can attend in your area or maybe even a product that you can buy – like some CD's. So, should you go to these seminars? Should you take advantage of the “next” huge investment opportunity that you have a chance to get involved in? Yes and No.
I have always recommended getting as much knowledge as possible. That is one of the reasons why you are even reading this article. And you will usually always walk away with at least one idea or strategy that you can use. But, don't necessarily get sucked into buying the next big thing. In other words, don't fall for the “grass is greener” syndrome and buy the $5,000 seminar or the $4,000 home study “get rich by Tuesday” course. Think it through first, the question to ask yourself is, “Am I Really Going To Put My Time And Effort Into This?”
If the answer is Yes, by all means move forward but, if the answer is no or I don't know, then, move along. It human nature for us to see something else and think that is the way to go, drop what we are currently doing and jump 100% into the next great opportunity. Don't fall for it. Nothing is ever as easy as it seems and if you jump on every great real estate investing opportunity that comes up, well, you will never acquire any real wealth.
