Ways to Invest in Real Estate

Ways to Invest in Real Estate

When you are investing, you are naturally looking for ways to earn extra cash on the top of your day job. While real estate is a good way to get more cash, it requires a substantial amount of money to start. But in 2019 you can find some new ways and means of investing in properties, without needing large amounts of money.

Where to Invest in Property?

The more you know about the place you're considering for real estate investment, the easier should be to decide if you will be buying a property there. It also depends on whether you are looking for a new home, or to buy an investment or a rental property.

It's one of the toughest decisions that you will make, so do your homework well, to make a good and well informed decision. Use these questions and comments below to help you make the right choice. This same approach would apply whether you're buying into property in your home country, or are looking to buy a property abroad.

Property Demand Questions

 1. Is the population growing fast?
Check the US Census figures online, or ask the local government if they have the statistics. Stay away from areas that have little growth.

 2. Is job growth decent in the area?
Again, ask local authorities or use the census information. You want to see job growth equal to or exceeding population growth. The people have to have money to pay for housing.

 3. What about the quality of life?
This is subjective, but important. Are there theaters and bookstores? Count coffee shops and cafes. Trendy areas usually have increasing demand for housing. It's also a good indication of a high quality-of-life if people are willing to take lower-paying jobs just to live there.

 4. How much wealth is in the area?
It is always a good sign when there is some degree of wealth in a town. Count rich homes. Wealth means everything doesn't die when the economy slows.

Buy a property as a financial nest egg
While nothing lasts forever and there are no sure things in the world, investing in real estate property
comes close to having a secure financial nest egg that can last you a lifetime.

Property Supply Questions

 1. How much is there new construction?
The census figures can tell you what's happened over the last ten years. Then check with the local authorities to see if the the number of housing units they've issued permits for is more or less than the expected population growth.

 2. How many homes are for sale?
A lower supply of homes for sale means upward pressure on prices. This indirectly drives up rents as well, which makes for better investing.

 3. What are rent and vacancy levels?
Are rents high enough to justify investing? Are vacancies low? When we first came to Tucson, every building had vacancies, and we saw a man holding a sign that read, "Apartment - $250 Per Month." Great place for renters, but not a great place to invest in real estate.

 4. Available land that is buildable?
Scarcity is important. Less is better for future appreciation. When the land runs out, the prices start accelerating upwards.

Use these questions to compare various towns and cities, and you'll see the differences more clearly. You'll see how housing demand compares to supply in each. Finally, you'll see where it is better to invest in real estate.


WHEN LIFE BEGINS

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin — real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
