Why I'm no longer a real estate investor

When I first got into real estate, I thought real estate worked by buying a piece of property, waiting for the price to go up, and then selling for a profit. Later, as I gained more experience and perspective, I realized that smart investors don't wait for appreciation; instead they force appreciation by buying at a discount and then doing improvements that increase the value of the property. However, today I want to take that one step further by introducing a perspective that you may already know. This perspective helps move you away from needing to save up money to invest in real estate and instead puts you in a position to make deals happen at any time.
