The Law of Supply and Demand
Where is the balance of power between buyers and sellers?
Prices can fluctuate according to how many goods or services are
available and how many people are bidding on them. Those roses cost
more on valentine’s day, don’t they?
As a seller, best to be selling in a seller’s market (More
buyers than sellers) . As a buyer, better to be buying with little
competition (Buyer’s market). Whether building a business,
buying real estate, stocks, or buying consumer items, utilize and
apply the knowledge of this principle to make your fortune.
It is well known among sophisticated real estate investors that
Motivated Sellers will make you rich. Motivated sellers want or
need to sell more than you need to buy.
Acquiring an asset temporarily out of favor and therefore undervalued
is one of the best ways to get wealthy.
As a business owner, buy umbrellas when the sun is shining and
sell them when it’s raining. When the buyer demands, you supply.
Apply This Concept
Understanding supply and demand factors based on business cycles
is an art as well as a science. The more proprietary and unique
your product or service, the more value you should be able to create.
That being said, however, you will still need to operate within
the overall market forces of supply and demand. First to market
is often successful. Second to market, with improvements of the
original version, can also be wildly successful. It has been said
to earn a living, sell people what they need. To get wealthy, sell
them what they want. Business people tend to supply people what
they want. True entrepreneurs guess where the demand is going to
be and get there first.
