Real Estate investing is a slow process. You will have days where involvement is all research, and accompanied by keeping track of projects. You may also have days where it is all accounting. There are plenty of other mundane things. Monotonous duties can start to wear you down.
You may actually enjoy your days mentioned previously. There will also be some bad days. What does a bad day consist of? It could be a number of things. A deal falls apart that you have been putting all of your effort into for months. An offer from a buyer falls apart or falls out of escrow after a month has gone by. Your rental property is not renting and the bills are mounting.
Mentally how do you recover from something disheartening? The slow process in which things happen, recovering can be trying, especially on a mental level. The best way to combat these situations is to have so many deals in process that one not panning out does not knock you off kilter. Always try to keep enough events happening so the business always looks brighter.
Thankfully, you will also have some good and even great days. An offer on a property comes through quicker than you thought. Perhaps an offer that you put into a property is accepted after waiting for a very long time. After months and years, you may start to see how the accumulation of events is starting to pay off. Your experience levels will become greater and things start to become easier. You will accumulate higher quality contacts. It takes a long time but the rewards will start to appear.
Keep your chin up and keep at it!
