With all of the investment opportunities available these days,
it can sometimes be difficult to decide which one is right for
you and your money. If you find yourself trying to make a
decision about where your money should be invested, you might
want to take a few moments to consider investing in real estate.
While real estate investment isn't right for everyone, there is
a rather significant potential to make money if you handle your
real estate investments correctly.
To help you to decide whether or not real estate investment is
right for you, here is some additional information on investing
in real estate for both resale purposes and rental purposes, as
well as some of the advantages and disadvantages of this type of
Investing for Resale
One common method of investing in real estate is investing for
the purposes of resale. This method uses real estate in much the
same way that other investors use stocks or similar investments;
you purchase a piece of property and then attempt to sell it for
more than you invested into it. Investors who buy and sell real
estate in this manner will often use the money made from one
piece of property to purchase another, keeping some real estate
on the market as much as possible and keeping the excess money

But what if you just recently decided to...
made from the last sale.
Investing for Rental
Another common method of investing in real estate is investing
for the purposes of owning rental property. Instead of putting a
house or apartment building back on the market after purchasing
it, the rental investor finds individuals who are interested in
renting their property and then serves as landlord. This type of
investment doesn't yield as much at one time as resale
investments, but has the potential to bring in a somewhat steady
return for months or years to come.
Advantages of Real Estate Investment
The advantages of real estate investment are much like the
advantages of any investment... there is an opportunity to make
money, sometimes large amounts of money. Resale investors can
often purchase property that needs minimal repair, fix it up,
and see a significant increase in their profits for not a whole
lot of money. Rental investors can make even more over time,
because as long as their property is occupied they're going to
be making money. Years down the road, they can also choose to
sell their rental property for additional profits.
Disadvantages of Real Estate Investment
While there is a great potential to make money with real estate
investment, it's not without its
Real Estate Market Conditions
The winter season gives real estate agent/brokers a chance to sit back and evaluate the previous season-Yes? No! These days, the chance to sit back is merely a dream. Agents and Brokers must build their business with new market niches in order to...
disadvantages. For resale
investors, they may not be able to find a buyer as quickly as
they'd like, or the real estate market might drop after they'd
made their purchase... either scenario meaning that they aren't
able to get the money out of the property that they want or in
some cases not even able to get back what they put into it.
Rental investors have to deal with the people who are renting
the property, as well as potential periods when no one is
renting it... and are responsible by law for certain amounts of
maintenance and repair even though it may be the tenant's fault
that the repairs are needed.
They also have to deal with non-paying tenants, and those who
are quick to threaten legal action even if it's not legitimate.
Both types of investment also require payment of property taxes
and other fees.
Money can be made with real estate, just make sure that you're
ready for the drawbacks as well.
