Why Invest In Real Estate?
Real estate is an exciting asset class. It's the only investment that provides such a variety of ways to grow your net worth.
- Speculating: betting on development projects and new construction
- Flipping: renovating, rehabbing and upgrading properties for a profit
- Developing: infill lots, subdivisions and commercial developments
- Investing: buying properties that generate positive cash flow for the long term
In addition to the variety of ways to be involved in the real estate market, there are also multiple ways to accelerate you returns:
- Capital Appreciation: the value of your properties goes up over time
- Equity Growth: your mortgage goes down over time
- Cash Flow: your monthly rent less your expenses
- Highest and Best Use: improving the property to increase rents or increase it's market value
In addition, investing in real estate provides you with the power of leverage in two ways. First- you can purchase real estate for a fraction of the true cost (typically 20% down). Second- as your properties increase in value you can use your new equity to purchase another property with little to no new cash. This is the magic of real estate investing!
