Before applying for a business loan, you’re required to complete a business plan to present the feasibility of your plan. In addition, a business plan is a map; you can check this map periodically to make sure your business is on track. Real estate is a business, and as such, should have a business plan.

As the old adage goes, “To fail to plan is to plan to fail”. When starting your real estate portfolio, it’s extremely important that you have goals, and a business plan to reach those goals. Remember that your investing is your business, and it should be treated as a business.

The reason that so many people fail at new business attempts, including real estate, is because they don’t do their research and don’t create goals, or the plan to reach the goals.

Keep in mind throughout your adventure that your business plan may be altered; after all, it’s not set in stone.
