Q: What do you see is your biggest risk that you face?
A: I think the biggest risk I face is kind of ties into what I was saying earlier is that I think the biggest risk is thinking or pretending that you have a crystal ball and knowing or thinking that the market has topped out and then letting that turn into fear of buying anymore, or continuing to grow your business model. Which, for us is acquiring property and growing the portfolio.
I get asked almost weekly now, “Well, don't you think the markets too hot and where the ceiling?” I'm like we could be but you know people were saying that three years ago and here we are and we're higher than we were then.
You can always play that game where well. “You know, things seem too hot. I'm just going to go and wait it out”. Well, you could be waiting it out for the next 10 years. So the question is do you want to wait it out and let 10 years pass you by or do you want to take a calculated risk now?
As long as a deal makes sense and the numbers make sense and you can you can run it like a need to, then everything is fine.
So I think the BIGGEST RISK actually is letting that fear overrun you, or thinking that you know better than the market. Nobody knows where the markets going right nobody knows but I think letting that turns to your and then turning to in action. I think it's the BIGGEST RISK, at least for me.
