We have all experienced this from time to time. It’s the nature of the business. Look at it as a positive. When this has happened to me, I look at it as experience. The more properties I view, contracts I write, contracts I negotiate is all learning for me. It’s never a waste, and it makes me better.
Especially if you are new, you need to get out there and learn. Real estate is so much about what you know. You must get out there and see properties as well as understand the purchase documents you need when working with a buyer.
Never think you have wasted your time. Sure maybe you didn’t get a pay cheque this time around, but the experience you received, I would say is priceless and will 100% pay off down the road.
