4 Steps In Real Estate Investment


Welcome, dear real estate investors. From my experience in the real estate sector have realized the major issues and problems of investors. Many don’t actually know what the steps really are when it comes to real estate properties or buying a land property in any location. To buy land is easy but actually knowing the steps to be taken is the key part.

A lady was chatting with me a few weeks ago telling me how she lost a huge amount of money just because she wanted to buy a piece of land in Ibadan, capital of Oyo State, Nigeria. She was so distressed that she fell into their hand. Then I told her that she fell into their hands simply because she didn’t know the steps required in buying a land property. The fact that there are fake and scammers tell us that that there is an original and genuine real estate consultant who is loyal, faithful, and truthful.

I am Oyedepo Peter, your real estate consultant, I will be telling you this day about the four steps needed to invest in real estate. These four steps when properly put in place will produce a massive profit in your investment.

Here are the Four steps in Real Estate Investment

  1. YOUR BUDGET: The very first steps in investing in real estate is your budget. By budget I mean how much do you have with you, how much is your income or saving, how much can you afford? Don’t embark on any real estate investment you can’t afford. The other alternative when budgeting is, paying on installment. When payment is on installment purpose, you need to plan very well.
  2. LOCATION: Yes, location matters a lot. Your budget will determine which location you are investing in. Note that a city or town will generates more money than in the village. Also let me tell you this that in real estate, there is nothing like bush. Every bush will in turn become a city. So location needs to be considered when investing. Don’t just put your money anywhere. Ask yourself this question, Why am I choosing this particular location and not somewhere else?
  3. INSPECTION: This is very important in real estate. Don’t buy any land property you have not inspect either personally or someone you trust so much to inspect on your behalf probably your wife. In fact it’s advisable you go there yourself. But in a situation whereby you have a tight schedule and you needed to buy the land at that very moment make sure you have a representative to go there and inspect for you. But in the process where you’ve gain trust from the company or you’ve once bought a plot of land from them, then you can go ahead without inspecting. Another vital option of inspection is through virtual inspection
  4. PROPER INFORMATION: Information and gathering of data is very much necessary when investing in real estate. Never buy a land property when you’ve never gather enough information firstly about the person selling it (Agent or consultant), secondly about the company or the owner of it, thirdly about the office address of the company and lastly about knowing how genuine the land is.
