Real Estate Investing 101

Simply stated, when investing in real estate, the goal is to put money to work today and allow it to increase so that you have more money in the future. The profit, or “return,” you make on your real estate investments must be enough to cover the risk you take, taxes you pay, and the costs of owning the real estate investment such as utilities, regular maintenance, and insurance.

Real estate investing really can be as conceptually simple as playing monopoly when you understand the basic factors of the investment, economics, and risk. To win, you buy properties, avoid bankruptcy, and generate rent so that you can buy even more properties. However, keep in mind that “simple” doesn’t mean “easy.” If you make a mistake, consequences can range from minor inconveniences to major disasters. You could even find yourself broke or worse.

How Real Estate Investors Make Money

Real Estate Appreciation
It is when the property increases in value due to a change in the real estate market, the land around your property becoming scarcer or busier like when a major shopping center is built next door or upgrades you put into your real estate investment to make it more attractive to potential buyers or renters. Real estate appreciation is a tricky game. It is riskier than investing for cash flow income.

Cash Flow Income
This type of real estate investment focuses on buying a real estate property, such as an apartment building, and operating it, so you collect a stream of cash from rent, which is the money a tenant pays you to use your property for a specific amount of time. Cash flow income can be generated from apartment buildings, office buildings, rental houses, and more.

When you are ready to start the process of real estate investing, you’ll want to decide which of the real estate investment type is most appropriate for you. At Corville We understand your Real Estate Needs.
