How to select a real estate seminar?
Some real estate seminars are specifically organized for real estate agents and are usually tailor made as per the requirements. The speakers in this case are of great repute and of some amazing experiences and knowledge. Some seminars are organized especially for beginner investors. These seminars give some basic knowledge and interesting tips to start out safely in the real estate market. The investors here may be lured with exciting deals and easy loan instalments to help make their first investment. While such type of seminars are usually reliable and genuine, just be sure the firm or the company organizing it has good market reputation. You can find out about them through the net, online articles, reviews and website information. Do not hesitate to ask questions through friends and associates about the seminars that you¡¯re interested to attend.
Always be conscious of fake seminars, mentoring services or boot camps. They may charge a very high fee for an hour or so but may not be of value for the money that you have to pay. Do not let the organizers simply sweet talk you into any expensive deal. The organizers may be out to simply fleece you with no real information or knowledge. The only gainer in this case is the organizers. They earn huge amounts through the high admission fee and the sale of booklets, CD and audio tapes. They usually advertise through newspaper, radio or television.
Look for an authentic seminar to educate yourself at a reasonable price. You may just end up with some amazing deals, ideas and great connections.
Price of the seminar: Beware of very expensive or very cheap real estate seminars. If the seminar is free, it is probably because the promoter of a real estate wants to sell his property. It costs the real estate experts a good sum of money to organize a seminar; free seminars are not because they want to indulge in social-work but because they want to sell their product by attracting abundant customers. On the other hand, if a seminar charges you $1000, make sure you get enough follow-up training or important material. In the end, just make sure that you get what you pay for.
Group format: If you are paying a decent fee for a real estate seminar, make sure that the class size is small. In a big group format, it will be difficult to clear all queries.
Look for alternatives: Before investing in an expensive real estate seminar marketed, look for inexpensive seminars whose advertisements have been off the T.V records. Ask your real estate agents to inform you about the seminars that are happening around you. These seminars are equally good as the well-marketed ones, the only difference is that they are conducted within a short notice, and hence, no marketing.
Teaching ability of the real estate expert: Invest in a real estate seminar which is headed by a good real estate counsellor. There are some real estate gurus who are well-informed and knowledgeable but do not have good counselling ability. Do away from investing in such seminars. Ask other investors who have attended seminars before or make sure that you have heard about seminar expert before. It is important that you will still receive advice upon making your own investment after the seminar.
