Does your investment portfolio include physical property?
Real estate has become a popular investment vehicle over the last 50 years. Although buying and owning brick and mortar is a lot more complicated than investing in equities and bonds the security and return can be attractive to some investors.
There are two major types of Real Estate Investments Strategies
Basic Rental Properties: Buy & Hold
This is an investment as old as the practice of land ownership. A person will buy a property and rent it out to a tenant.
- An investor must know the market in which he is searching for property or hire an investment specialist to help. Inbridge Group Real Estate Professionals are experts in identifying income-earning properties.
- Important aspects to consider: property location and market rental rates.
The “Not So” Basic Real Estate Investment: Buy & Sell
These investors make their money by buying properties below market vale or reasonably priced properties and adding value by renovating them. They then sell (or rent) the property after renovations for a higher price. This can be a longer-term investment, depending on the extent of the improvements.
