3 Key Points:

  1. Having the right mentor could help you get a gist of the industry and be able to succeed. Even if it is costly, the money you've invested would be returned 3-4 times over.
  2. Aside from having a well-built structure, the property has to be an experience in itself for the guests to fully enjoy their stay.
  3. The real estate industry might be delayed in terms of digital trends (which is not always a bad thing), but there are many digital marketing principles that may be applied to it.
