When investing in real estate, no emotions please…

Last Updated on by Jay Castillo | Filed under: - 51 Comments

If there’s one thing good about real estate investing, it’s the fact that you can leave emotions out of the picture when making decisions.


In fact, veteran real estate investors out there often say that it is a must to never let your emotions interfere with your decision making process, which I believe is very wise.

Leave your emotions behind when it comes to real estate investing. Don’t ever let feelings cloud your judgement. Be objective and let the numbers decide for you… yada yada yada…

I just wish it were that easy when it comes to matters like family and loved ones, where emotions are always there.

But hey, we are not robots, we are human beings, and it is expected that we’ll end up very emotional about what matters most to us like the people we love. I should know. We are now facing something that we never thought we would have to.

All I can say for now is we would really appreciate prayers that everything will be alright. Thank you.

(Update added on June 13, 2012) My wife is still confined in a hospital and I am taking care of her. She is inside the maternal ICU, which is why I am able to write this. I guess this helps keep me from feeling depressed. Thank you everyone for the prayers. I hope and pray everything will be okay.

(Update added on June 20, 2012) My wife was discharged from the hospital last June 16, 2012, the infection is under control, although her amniotic fluid is still very low. Her pregnancy is at 20 weeks and 3 days as I write this. Our baby is holding on, heartbeat is normal… Thanks be to God! We are praying that the ruptured amniotic sac will heal itself and be sealed, and the amniotic fluid will be replenished. It may seem we are praying for a miracle… yes, that is exactly what we are praying for!

(Update added on July 7, 2012) We are now at exactly 23 weeks, one month has passed since my wife had Preterm Premature Rupture of the Membranes or PPROM, we are holding on… thank you Lord for the miracles, each day is a miracle! We are still hoping and praying that my wife’s amniotic sac will heal and seal itself and the amniotic fluid will be replenished. We pray baby will grow healthy as if the amniotic fluid is at normal levels… we pray for God’s protection for my wife and baby… we still have a long way to go… Thank you so much for all the prayers, we really appreciate it. May God bless us all!

(Update added on July 17, 2012) I feel like we won a battle but lost a war. My wife had an emergency C-section due to signs of Sepsis and Baby Mira had to come out after a month of holding on. She survived for a little more than seven hours, she simply had underdeveloped lungs. Baby Mira has been laid to rest. My wife is still recovering from the c-section and a bout with elevated blood pressure (I pray for her complete recovery). Thanks again for the prayers.
