Success is where Preparation and Opportunity Meet

Bobby Unser won the Indy 500 three times and his favorite quote was “success is where preparation and opportunity meet” – and that’s 100% true with real estate investing just as it was with auto racing in the 1970s. All key is to figure out what the opportunity will be going forward, and then properly prepare to harness that information. America has a number of megatrends in the future, from the demand for affordable housing to the rise of a “rental nation” and the continued impact and refinement of internet possibilities – you just need to use your creative imagination.
