Real Estate Investment

When it comes to Real Estate, most people think of a home for themselves and their family. There is another aspect to Real Estate that funds an entire Industry in most cities around the world, Real Estate Investment. Whether you’re aware of it or not, anyone that owns a property has an investment in Real Estate, how you choose to operate it is the biggest difference. Real Estate can be a huge part of your overall Investment Portfolio or it can be your Investment Portfolio. Surrounded with the right team and advisor’s most investors will never go wrong with an investment property. Your team will consist of a Realtor®, Accountant and Lawyer when you start out, this will grow as your portfolio does. The people and team you trust to work with should be able to advise you whether you’re buying your first property or ‘Door’ 500. Not every Realtor®, Mortgage Broker, Accountant and Lawyer knows Real Estate Investment, so these initial decisions will lay your Portfolio foundation.

Real Estate Investment offer’s many different strategies that can be used based on your comfort level and budget. Real Estate Investment Strategies include... Buy Hold & Rent, Fix & Flip, Flip to Yourself, Rent to Own, Mortgage and Land Development.

Buy Hold & Rent and Fix & Flip are the most common strategies and where most investors will start. These Strategies will work for most budget conscious Investors and rookies looking to get into the Market. I cannot stress enough that you need to find a Realtor®, Mortgage Broker, Accountant or Lawyer that has knowledge of Real Estate Investment that you trust and feel comfortable with; finding anyone of them will lead you to the rest of your team in most cases. Your first point person will most likely be a Realtor® and/or Mortgage Broker.
