The Lucrative Advantages of Real Estate Investing
Did you know that the majority of millionaires today made their millions through real estate? The real estate industry has always been a money maker even when the market was perceived to be down. Real estate is amazingly resilient in that if you stay in the real estate market long enough, the market will always increase. The key is to make real estate investing work for you, enabling you to say goodbye to your stifling day job and hello to financial freedom.
In general, there are two types of real estate investments which include Speculative and Certainty. A speculative real estate investment has profits that are reliant on appreciation. Therefore, this type of real estate investing is vulnerable to market conditions and makes it a long term option.
An example of a successful speculative real estate investment would be if you bought real estate in California in the 1980ís. At that time the real estate market was sluggish. However, the 1990ís and beyond brought Silicon Valley and the real estate market shot through the roof. This was a long term investment that yielded amazing profits. One drawback to speculative real estate investing is that you have to go to the geographic locations where the best real estate deals exist, which may often not be in your back yard.
The second type of real estate investment involves certainty. A certainty type of real estate investment occurs when you buy real estate well below the market value. You buy this real estate at a rock bottom price from stressed out sellers. This type of real estate investment is not affected by the market. You will earn the profit up front by selling the real estate quickly. This is a valuable real estate investing plan for most because you can work in your own area and is a short term option that provides quick profits.
Letís take a closer look at a certainty real estate investment. You can create your own certainty real estate investing business with little overhead and you donít even need an office. You can finance 100% of your project costs using other peopleís money and credit. Your project cost is the purchase price + rehab price + holding costs. So if your financial situation is grim then you donít need to worry.
Specifically, you can start earning upwards of ,000/month within the first 6-10 months. This is welcome news because most businesses take three years to earn a profit. Remember, though, that this is not a get rich quick scheme. You need to put in the effort and build a legitimate thriving real estate investing business. You can earn ,000/month by making only one real estate deal per month yielding 0,000/year. If you choose to work part time then you can make 1 real estate deal per two months yielding ,000/year. These numbers are attainable if you follow a proven, predictable real estate investing system.
Learning how to succeed in the real estate investing business from a proven system is not only important for financial reasons, but will also educate you about legal issues. You need to know the current real estate laws. These laws and standards can change and you will be held accountable if you make a mistake. Plus, you need to know how to protect yourself against corrupt business people that may take advantage of you.
Real estate investing is a business that anyone can succeed in. Victorious real estate investors are informed, dedicated, and confident. Why donít you join their crowd?
