3 Reasons why your (real estate) ideas are worthless

1. Uniqueness

If you thought about this brilliant idea, chances are good that a couple of other people thought of the same idea. There are after all, 7 billion people in the world although maybe a few less people focused on real estate. What I have found over the years, is the same ideas popping up infrequently but manifesting itself through a different story. Some ideas are just sugarcoated representations of existing disruptive models (e.g. AirBnB, Uber) or maybe even a combination of a couple of great models.

2. Execution aka elbow grease

3. Funds

Most people don’t have the cash flow to execute their ideas, or quite their job to start working on that idea, so they start looking around for funding. This I have found is hard to get, even for established businesses although we’ve bootstrapped and stayed clear of that route.
