What Makes A Great Real Estate Investment


With the right real estate investment you can make money while minimizing the amount of work required from you.  In fact, in many instances there may be no work required on your part and so your profits from the investment becomes a passive source of income.  When you make smart choices up front, you can make some great real estate investments and maximize your returns. Here are some tips to help you make those smart choices:

  1. Look for one that pays a fair rate of return. When you invest, you use your liquidity, your financial assets, and you invest that money into the real estate. You need to find the best rate of return on the real estate deal you choose.
  2. Avoid risky investments. All real estate is a risk, but some properties are riskier than others. Ignore fixer uppers, development real estate, land, or private real estate funds and choose, instead, a property with an established cash flow. A multi-family property often already has tenants in place, so cash flow is already there. Also, make sure to perform due diligence on any property you are interested in to make sure you are choosing a low risk real estate decision.
  3. Look for a property which does not require a lot of management. Many properties require a great deal of your time, this does not make them smart investments. These would be things like vacation rentals, low quality properties in bad areas, or college rentals. You want properties that have been rented for as long as possible to decent credit profile tenants because they take the least time to manage. One of the best decisions you can make is to invest with a Real Estate Investing Group who will handle everything from start to finish. You invest and they take care of the rest.
  4. Look for properties which are in good shape. Multi-family properties which have been maintained and already have a cash flow are the best investments. To find them, you need to do your research and make an educated decision.
