    Real Estate Investing As A Business

    “Investment is most intelligent when most business like” – Warren Buffett

    If investing is better when conducted most business like, does it mean that more real estate investors ought to be investing in a more businesslike fashion?

Where can help and support be found for building a more businesslike property portfolio?

    What does Real Estate Investing as a Business Mean?

    “Businesslike” investing suggests a less emotional, better organized, well thought out approach to real estate. Definitions of ‘business’ can range from describing a profession, to commerce and trade, to an actual company. All of these definitions likely influence Warren Buffett’s decision to be more businesslike in investing. It has certainly worked for him, and for his own prized real estate investments, and real estate companies. It could mean running a real estate company of some type, owning an investment (which is distinctly different from managing one), or just being more businesslike in every day investment and real estate decisions.

    Why Should Investors Approach REI as a Business?

    There are many practical benefits of taking a business approach to real estate including:

    • Scalability

    • More profitable investment moves
    • Efficiency in organization
    • Separating personal from investment finances, assets, and income
    • Building substantial additional value within a business entity
    • Tax reduction
    • More free time

Entire years of real estate statistics have been revised in the past, new indexes have been created to restart the clock, and even the national GDP was revised.

This applies to affluent individuals with top 1% income, as well as those that need to pinch pennies. Stocks have continued to demonstrate extreme volatility and risk.
