1. Decide to become an investor.It all begins with commitment. Stick to the decision. According to Kiyosaki, your first and foremost investment must be in your education. Study the industry and learn to be financially literate.2. Find an area."Areas go up, areas go down, and areas go sideways. The area is more important than the property," says Kiyosaki, to whom "location, location, location" is of prime importance. The property itself can go up or down, depending on its location.3. Identify properties.Once you've zeroed in on a lucrative neighborhood, it's time to look for the property itself. This is a comprehensive process that includes house-hunting, comparing property rates, and consulting realtors and other property experts for a more exacting approach.4. Analyze, offer, negotiate.This stage of the investment will determine how much you're going to have to spend on the property and the conditions of its turnover. Study, discuss, and negotiate the agreement between you and the seller. Consult professionals such as a realtor and a lawyer to get the most out of the negotiations.5. Put together the deal.This step covers due diligence, financing, and reaching an agreement. Inspect the property and its deeds. Study the fine print and the technical details with a keen eye. Make sure that the paperwork is authentic.6. Property management.Investors have multiple options for property management. They can opt to manage the property themselves, serving as its landlord, or hire an individual, a company, or a property management service to attend to the practical, hands-on necessities of maintaining a property.
