Ever got burnt buy having the numbers wrong on you analysis?

First and foremost I will ask for salient Property Valuation Report. The Current Market Value, Force Sale Value and Future Market Value for the said property. Next I will take my property site visit to ensure that the written reports is really genuine on the facts and figures to personally confirm the real estate value. Finally I will check with the related District or Municipal Office of that property landed to clarify the future development that has been planned within the vicinity area from that property. After those stuffs satisfied my decision making support system, I will make my investment to that property, promptly. And thats the way how I work for my property investment. And so far never fails.

Thank you for your input. Is this what you do for mainly the properties that you will be holding for a while? Eventually I will be investing in properties to hold, but for now I am looking at properties to rehab.
