Real Estate Investing Tips From Don Campbell

* “Don’t listen to anyone -- including me.” Do your own homework and find a system that forces you to ask the tough questions.

* Target older properties, not brand new units. “With some renovation work, you will add value to the property.”

* Avoid buying pre-build properties. “Pre-builds are not investments, they are speculations. You have no idea what will happen in three years.”

* Analyze the property and make a clear decision based on fundamentals, not emotions.

* When choosing a neighbourhood, look for three things: an older area that is in transition; an area that has easy access to transportation; and preferably an area that has an undeserving bad reputation based on local stigma.
