Not sure?  No problem.  Here's some more information to help you make an educated decision...

Exactly what is a business plan, and do I really need one?

Are you skeptical about the need for a business plan?  Have you ever thought, “I'm doing fine with my business and don’t need one,” or “I like to ride by the seat of my pants.”  Or maybe you’ve never really even given it much thought.

Ok, fair enough.  But consider this:

FACT #1: Thinking through and writing a solid business plan is of key, vital importance in developing any successful business venture.  And building a successful real estate investing business is no exception.

FACT #2: Most people trying to be successful real estate investors DO NOT have a clear plan, much less a written business plan to guide them.

FACT #3: Most people who attempt to succeed in real estate investing without a specific, solid plan to guide them will ultimately fail.

Ten Solid, Real-World Reasons You Absolutely Need A Business Plan

Let's take a brief look at a few specific reasons you need a business plan for your real estate investing business.

  1. A written business plan can help you choose the path that fits you best

    If you’re new to real estate investing, then you’re about to discover that it’s not all as simple and straight forward as the infomercials make it seem. 

    In fact you’re beginning to realize that “real estate investing” is a much broader term than most people realize.  Flipping, lease options, landlording, contracts for deed, self-directed IRAs, corporations, commercial investing …

    …Uh …wow.  The more you get into this thing, the more you realize that it isn’t nearly as cut-and-dry as it seems at first.  The world of real estate investing is, in fact, deep and wide.  And like the rabbit hole in Alice’s Wonderland, the more you get into it, the deeper and wider it seems to get.

    This fact alone can be pretty overwhelming and often even paralyzing.  But taking the time to think through a write out a business plan forces you to analyze your strengths, your weaknesses, your life structure and your financial means – and then compare these things to the array of opportunities that present themselves to you as a budding real estate entrepreneur.

    FACT:  Walking in every direction at once is inefficient at best.  And trying to do every kind of deal that comes your way (often referred to as the “tool belt” approach to investing) is inefficient at best, and leads most people down the windy road of being a jack of all trades, but master of none.

    Make no mistake, there is a better way. And writing a business plan will force you to make a reasonable decision of which path you will take first, and which you will avoid or put off until later.

  2. A written business plan gives you focus and clarity

    As a real estate investor, you need to be able to clearly identify specifically what it’s going to take for you to walk down the path you’ve chosen.

    Said another way, you need to clearly identify not only which building you’re going to rest your ladder against, but how many rungs are on the ladder, what each of them looks like, and in what order you should take them.

    Putting together a business plan allows you to stroll through many aspects of your business and develop clear answers to the important questions that most people rarely even take the time to ask.  But having clear, written answers to these key questions can make the difference between rapid success and struggling with failure.

  3. A written business plan will help you set realistic goals ...

    Setting and writing down your short and long term goals are extremely important. Setting your goals gives you a yardstick by which you can measure your progress and writing down your goals forces you to commit to them.

    Creating a business plan assists you in doing both. You must think about where you want to be, what resources you need to get there, what you need to do to get there, and how long your journey will take. Having a clear vision of all of these is critical to success in real estate investing or any business.


    ...and keeps you accountable to achieve them


    If you don’t have a written plan, then you don’t know when you’re off track.  Having a written plan lets you take any particular deal or “opportunity” and compare it to something solid.  Then you have to make a decision about whether you are going to 1) deviate from your plan, 2) change your plan, or 3) pass on the deal/opportunity.

    But without a written plan, you put yourself into a situation of being reactive to whatever comes your way.  You may know what the target looks like, but you’re basically shooting with your eyes closed.

    Instead of letting yourself react to the hype and emotion surrounding any given opportunity, a written business plan helps keep you accountable to the sound business principals and strategies you’ve already thought out.  It helps keep your emotions in check, and pushed you to be PROactive about taking the necessary steps towards success.

  4. A written business plan helps you know your next move and think several steps ahead

    Many investors aren't sure what they should be doing from day to day, week to week and month to month. The result is a lot of wasted time and energy. A sound business plan, like a compass, gives you and your business direction. It serves as a guide to ensure that you stay on course, and lets you know when you finally arrive at your destination.

  5. A written business plan will help you "Blueprint" your business

    Throughout your real estate investing career, you will do some things very well and experience success while other endeavors won't be so smooth or successful. A business plan helps you chart your course and allows you to understand where you soared and where you stumbled.

    You'll be able to measure your results against your goals and create a pattern for repeating your successes or improving upon your failures.

  6. A written business plan will help you stabilize your existing business

    We've all heard the fact that most small businesses go out of business within the first three years of existence. The reasons for these failures vary, but most are due to lack of proper planning and the resulting misallocation of resources.

    By drafting and following a proper business plan, you'll know exactly what it takes to succeed in the game while the "fly-by-night" investors struggle to survive.

  7. A written business plan helps you track your progress and make adjustments when necessary

    Life is not perfect and neither is any business plan. However, if you don't know where you're going, how are you going to know if you're off track?

    Having a clear path to follow in the form of a business plan allows you to measure your progress, account for the unexpected, and fine tune your battle plan to keep yourself moving toward your goals. Without knowing where to make adjustments, you'll just be twisting in the wind every time life throws you a curve and spending more time than necessary getting back on track.

  8. A written business plan helps you apply and acquire current deal funding

    Whether you need funding from private lenders or your local banking institutions, a business plan places you head and shoulders above your competition. It conveys professionalism, and most banks and private lenders are reluctant to lend large sums of money without reviewing a business plan with clearly defined objectives.

  9. A written business plan helps you apply for future deal funding

    Even if you are currently using your own funds, you may have a need for additional funding down the road. Gap funding, funding for expansion, and funding for larger real estate deals all require money from outside sources. Draft your business plan now and be ready to take advantage of the next "deal of the century" when it arrives at your doorstep.

  10. A written business plan gives you peace of mind

    Last but not least, this business is your lifeline to a future of financial security for you and your family. You are spending time away from your loved ones creating a better financial future for them. So make your time and effort count!

    Create a business plan and use it. Rest easy and confident in the fact that you know exactly where you're going, where you've been and how you can repeat the successes as they start to roll in.
