There are a number of reasons why we network – the opportunity to learn from those around us is one. Some investors may have a different resume than you. Making a new connection, who is willing to let you in on their know-how, helps you tap into knowledge that you can only gain from hands-on experience.


Thankfully today, thanks to social media, there are more ways than ever to connect with others. You can grow your network and your knowledge by attending a meeting or hopping online. Read on to get your tip for each day this week.


Grow Your Network Week 4


 “All this networking doesn’t have to be at night and on the weekend. You can do some of this virtually where people are exchanging information…” – Ben Rao


Day 22 –  Find a Facebook group to join where you can talk with other real estate investors.

Day 23 –  Share your own expertise and knowledge with a new contact. Sometimes you have to give to get!

Day 24 – Follow Think Realty Resident Expert Ben Rao on LinkedIn

Day 25 – Read 3 ‘Unknowns’ that are Critical to a Real Estate Investor’s Success transcribed from a podcast by Kevin Guz and learn the ways to utilize your network.

Day 26 – Don’t forget contractors! We hear your local home improvement store may be a good place to run into one. Just be friendly and introduce yourself.

Day 27 – When you read an article of interest on Think Realty, reach out to the author by email. You can also interact by commenting on posts to prompt discussion.

* Day 28 – Think Realty members can watch Ben Rao’s Networking episode from his Building a Real Estate Investment Business course.
