Like many, you have probably become accustom to filtering your mail, as to get rid of all the junk that clutters your mailbox. While you may look at these as a nuisance, there are many investors who look at direct mail as the lifeline of their business.
There is a lot more that goes into a direct mail campaign than many think. Make sure you approach it with a strategy to maximize your results.

Before you make an offer you need to see the property for yourself. Trust your own eyes and don’t leave your potential earnings up to pictures someone else took.
Do not trust real estate photographs. Put in the time and visit a property in person before you consider buying it.

National real estate trends can be a sign of things to come, but they may not be relevant to your particular area. Before you overreact to what you hear on the news or read online, you have to know how and if this information really pertains to you.
Data is important in your real estate investment business, but it's only important if you have the knowledge of how to use it.

While it may seem like yesterday to those that were impacted by the downturn, the mortgage collapse was already five year ago. If we learned anything from the mortgage meltdown, it is not to count on appreciation
Appreciation should not be expected, but rather viewed as an added bonus if it actually happens.

Most investors get started in real estate thinking only of quick flips and how to make money as fast as possible. This approach can work for a portion of the deals that come your way and certain situations, but real estate investing can also be a great way to generate long term wealth.

Many investors fail to look at where their money is being spent every month. When you are running a business, it is important to keep an eye on the bottom line.
Every expense you make adds up at the end of the month. Keeping your costs down is one of the secrets to running a profitable business year in and year out.

In order to determine your strengths and weaknesses, you should do some self-evaluation before you ever apply for a mortgage.

If you know where you stand before the process, it will help you choose the path that is best for you. 
Between all of the tools made available, you should be able to have an idea of what you are qualified for before you look for a mortgage.
