Kyle Krch Explains How to Build a Successful Business in Real Estate
Starting your own business is no easy task, especially when that business involves real estate.
Kyle Krch of Reno, Nevada, founded Krch Realty at the young age of 25 and it quickly grew to over 80 real estate agents and the completion of thousands of transactions. He provides his advice when it comes to building a successful business in real estate.
Create a Business Plan
When you’re founding any new business, especially one in real estate, you have to have a plan. Experts from Krch Realty Reno, NV, say that a good business plan centers around the main idea for your business, as well as what you will need to order to achieve success. The creation of a business plan should include a lot of in-depth research, to ensure that the market in which you want to open your real estate business is a hospitable one. You’ll also want to research your competitors in the area and include a plan on how you will differentiate your business from theirs. Further, any solid business plan should also take into account your financial situation. Consider how much money you currently have or are willing to invest in this business and then how much you think you need. You should be thinking long-term and short-term when it comes to finances. You will require a different amount of capital to get the business off the ground than you will when it’s up and running.
Establish a Real Estate LLC
Kyle Krch’s second tip for building a successful business in real estate is to establish a real estate LLC (limited liability company). An LLC is a type of business structure that protects business costs from interfering with an investor’s personal finances. In the real estate world, this translates to enabling investors to purchase and own real estate, without any personal liability. Krch warns that states each have their own fees and regulations relating to LLCs (for example, Reno, NV, has its own set that are different from other states), so be sure to do a bit of research in advance.
Plan Your Marketing Strategy
According to Kyle Krch, founder of Krch Realty in Reno, Nevada, the third way to build a successful business in real estate is to plan out a winning marketing strategy. In Krch’s eyes, the success of one’s business is directly related to the success of its marketing strategy. Marketing is a multi-faceted area and when you’re just starting a business, it will likely include things like finally settling on a logo and creating a mission statement. But once the foundation is set, it’s time to start reaching out to potential customers. Successful marketing strategies in the 21st century must use a variety of mediums to communicate with potential customers. Consider taking advantage of direct mail (especially to the local area in which you’re established, and to older clientele, if applicable), email campaigns, social media, and bandit signs. Having a comprehensive marketing strategy from the outset will help you attract a wider audience and will be an effective method of helping you figure out who your target demographic is and who is responding to which marketing mediums.
Develop a Support Network
Kyle Krch’s last piece of advice for building a successful real estate business has to do with support. Developing a support network is critical for any entrepreneur, but especially so for those in the competitive real estate niche. In addition, many leads and deals in the real estate industry happen because of connections, so the more you network and the bigger social circle you have, the better off you will be. Kyle Krch claims that when he first started Krch Realty in Reno, NV, he made it his mission to expand his personal network as much as possible, reaching out to everyone from clients and colleagues to mentors and even competitors.
