If someone wants to invest in real estate business, this demands extensive knowledge, depth and understanding of the rules and by laws of real estate business in any country. Most probably real estate is the complicated and for sure one of the save investment if it is invested on true findings. There are certain tips which you need to be aware before investing in real estate which include the following;
Plan your Financial Goal:
Before you buy that first property, do your first analysis, determine what you expect from your investments. What are your financial goals? We often discuss the “time vs. money” concept. The more you have of one, the less you need of the other to reach your financial goals. This means that you shouldn’t shy away from taking the time to understand your goals and make sure each investment is a step toward achieving them. If you are unsure exactly how to create financial goals, meeting with a financial advisor is an excellent first step.
Survey & Research of Plenty of Properties:
Don’t just grab the first property you look at. Remember, you won’t be living there, so don’t make your investment decision based on your personal preferences. While you shouldn’t fall into the trap of analysis paralysis, make sure you are thorough in looking through properties. Give yourself a wide range of options, then narrow them down based on the criteria (goals) you have set for yourself.
Importance of Location:
The old saying that “location matters” is most accurate, when it comes to real estate investing. Before you fork over a down payment and put yourself in a significant amount of debt over a property, ensure that it’s in a good location.
Look for the worst house on the best street. That’s a principle you’ll come across quite a bit as you delve into further real estate investing advice.
You want to invest in the worst house on the best street because it gives you an opportunity to build equity. You can invest some money to fix it up and sell it to someone else who wants a ready-‐‑to-‐‑move-‐‑ in house in a fabulous location. Professional real estate investors call this “fixing and flipping.”
Detailed Financial Analysis:
The most important figures you should know are:
- Net income (income/expenses)
- Cash flow (net income/debt financing payments)
- Return on investment (cash flow/investment)
- Cap rate (net income/property price)
- Cash-‐‑on-‐‑cash return (cash flow/investment)
- Total ROI (total return/investment)
In each case, “investment” refers to how much you invest in the property. “Debt financing” refers to any loans you may have to take out to buy the property. And “total return” refers to cash flow, equity accrual (i.e., equity gained from your tenants paying their rents), appreciation and taxes.
Once you have understood these figures, you should have enough information to determine whether or not acquiring the property fits with your financial goals.
Wrapping it up:
Real estate investing offers the potential for fabulous returns. However, people have also bankrupted themselves investing in real estate. Be sure that you know what’s involved before you start.
