How To Invest Wisely in Real Estate
There are smart reasons to invest in real estate, and then there are dumb reasons. The truth is, for example, that we can't know for sure whether what's happening in real estate right now is the bottom of the market or not. Just like further down the road, after the dust has settled and people have long moved on past this financial crisis and its many causes and consequences, a new real estate bubble could very well form.
But if you're investing for the "right" reasons - and you know your risks - chances are your investment will be a good one.
1. Speculating versus Investing
Buying a chunk of land and hoping it goes up in value is SPECULATING. Buying a property to collect high income in the form of rent is INVESTING. Investing is a much safer (and smarter) way to go.
2. "Property Will Always Go up in Value"
Make sure the investment makes great sense from a positive-cash-flow perspective first. Then if the property falls in value, you're still "right side up" on your cash flows. Consider any appreciation to be simply icing on the cake when it comes to speculative real estate investing.
3. Getting Started in Real Estate Investing with Residential Property
It's easier to understand, purchase and manage than other types of property. If you're a homeowner, you've already got experience here. And you're the boss. Start close to home, so you can stay on top of things.
4. Where To Buy
There is - as you probably know - a widely held belief that the three most important factors involved in real estate success are "Location, Location, Location. We at District will help you find the right location for your investment.
