real estate investing fail

Great question @Mido Ali !  I think there are as many answers to that question as there are reasons and strategies for success.  But from my particular perspective some of the biggest reasons are: 

  • Lack of disciplined due diligence 
  • Letting emotion supersede logic and due diligence
  • Fear, either by analysis paralysis or in the ability to pivot when obstacles are put in their way

I would also say a lack of real estate investing education is also way up there, but I believe common sense and discipline can get you thru most, if not all educational limitations. 

Start small if you are afraid of failure, don't put in more than you can afford and you will build your investing muscle one property at a time.  ;)
