Jeff Adams: Real Estate Investment

Investment of any sort has always proved to be a boon to all. Real Estate in that case is the best form of investment you can take up. Whether you are new to this market or a pro, real estate can make you soar high with all its profits. Investing in Real Estate is no rocket science as you may have assumed. Follow a few simple steps and you can have the secure bright future you have always dreamed of.

Planning Strategies
Planning your real estate investment is the basic essential step towards a successful investment.  The current scenario on the market as you may have noticed is that of buying property and selling it as soon as possible. Some might choose to put it up for rent too, depending on their income and finance availability.

  • First step you need to follow is the amount of risk involved in this, the people who you would like to involve, the kind of money you are willing to spend.
  • Secondly, it is always favorable and advisable to consult an expert. Whether you are a fresher or an old player, Real Estate has its own risks. Consulting an expert will save your time and energy that would have otherwise been wasted along with just the right guidance you require to plan it all.
  • Thirdly, you must keep yourself updated with the on-going current trends of real estate in the market. As you know Real Estate stands on a neutral ground and it has all the chances of changes possible. The degrees of risks involved begin from no buyers to changes in the tax laws that concern property and the biggest mistake you may make is that of making assumptions. Real Estate investment has no ground for assumptions, for example you cannot be sure if the rates of the property will definitely appreciate or depreciate. Buying a property that isn’t too old would make more sense as you don’t know the expenditure that will incur to tidy that property for resale.
  • Lastly, make sure you look into the square feet and the carpet area of this property if it is for you and your family to live in because there is no compromising on number of rooms and the size of the home. On the other hand if you are planning to put this property on sale you need not worry a lot as there is always a hunt for shelter on.

What next?
Once you have purchased the property, the next question that pops up is what next? How do I go about making profit out of this? You can consider two options here. One would be to put the house for sale and the other, on rent. What choice to make out of these two relies on the price of the property. If the price is high you can sell off the property as you never know when the prices in the market may fall. On the contrary, if the price is low you can put that property on rent as that would fetch you a fixed amount periodically.

Next, price your property right. The pricing will differ depending on whether it is for sale or on rent. If giving it for rent, you should jot down the costs that may incur as maintenance of the property. If putting it for sale, you need to price it in such a way that it not only seems attractive to the buyer but also grabs maximum profit for yourself.

Advantages of Real Estate Investment

Increase in Income
While you are already earning through your current job or profession Real Estate investment will add to your income. Purchasing a property and putting it on rent ensures a certain amount in your daily life which goes on to add to accomplish your dreams.

If you managed purchasing the property at a low price, chances are that you have a good deal. Selling it then, at a higher price in the market will give you a huge profit in addition to your salary or current business.

As real estate investment increases your profit, it makes approval of loans faster. While you apply for a loan you need to present the concerned bank with your financial statements. Your combined income of real estate investment plus your job/business income altogether is high and since that proves that you are financially sound, in turn makes the approval of loans faster.

Boon for the next generation
It turns out to be a blessing for the coming generation as it is a piece of land or property that your children can put to use. They can either live in that house or put it on rent or sell it, totally depending on their choice.

Basic rule to follow is to take risks, to dive in and have an idea once and for all what the depth is. You may not go to the bottom of the sea but you will get an idea about how deep the waters run. Real Estate will only make you run faster towards your desires, your dreams.
