4 Fundamental Choices That Helped Me 10x My Real Estate Investing This Year

By Brandon Turner

Last year (2015) was a pretty slow year for real estate investing for me.

I flipped a house and bought a primary residence for myself, but other than that, I was so busy with a hundred other things — like managing the properties I already own, taking a road trip around the entire USA, and writing The Book on Rental Property Investing — that buying new properties got pushed to the back.

However, this year I decided things were going to be different.

So this year I’ve already purchased seven units, flipped two houses, I have four more units under contract to close soon, and we’re just nine months through the year!

Well, today I want to share with you the four fundamental choices I made in my life that helped me 10x my real estate investing this year.

And one of the specific goals we made was to buy a dozen units this year.

Why 12?

Well, I knew 12 would be a stretch goal, especially with the 40+ hours I was spending working on content for BiggerPockets, our first baby due in a few months, and the upheaval that would cause.

But I also saw 12 as something I could achieve if I put my heart into it.

But goal setting is fairly worthless if you don’t also plan a strategy for how you are going to get to that goal. It’s great that you want to become a millionaire, win a Grammy, go to the moon — but do you have a plan to achieve it? So our conversation on that New Year’s day led us toward another fundamental change that helped me 10x my goals this year…
