How One Can Benefit From Real Estate Investment

Ask any successful real estate investor and he will tell you that the best method to create personal wealth is to invest in real estate. When you invest in real estate in a carefully planned manner, your investment will fetch you excellent returns, unmatched by any other form of investment. Here are a few important facts about investment:
Although investment carries risks like all other forms of investment, the price fluctuations are a lot slower than the stock market or investment in gold. The money you have invested in real estate will not crash overnight. At best, fall in real estate prices may be ten percent less than it was the previous day.
One of the chief benefits of investment is banks and other financial institutions will be willing to lend you large sums of money for buying real estate. It is difficult to borrow money for buying stocks as …

Tips to Invest in the Real Estate Market

The real estate market is shaking at the moment, with dropping interest rates and an increasing rate of foreclosures. Of course, if you have the money, now is the time to invest in real estate.
Prior to these days, it was more common for individuals to do “house flipping.” This was a process where you bought a house, repaired it, and sold it for profit. This technique actually gave many people an excellent return on investment, and tax breaks.
Instead of the quick cash from flipping, people enjoy the steady stream of income through renting their property out. With a few different locations, this can add up pretty high.
The great thing about this is that it is almost a risk-free investment. As long as the property is managed correctly and the renters are chosen appropriately, all will remain fine.

Fundamental and Technical Real Estate Analysis

There are two main schools of stock investment: fundamental analysis and technical analysis. Both of them have their merits, according to the masses, but I don’t believe that technical analysis is a sound approach to stock investment.
I’ll briefly explain both approaches.
Fundamental analysis deals with exactly what it sounds like: the fundamentals of the company. This means the potential investor will examine the company’s track record, its financial statements, its management, its market sector, its geographic location, and all other things that make that business that business. Fundamental analyzers look at these things to arrive at a conclusion of the company; from this data, they decide whether the company is a good or a bad one and whether or not they should invest their hard-earned money into it.
Technical analysis ignores all of this. Instead, somebody using the approach of technical analysis will look at the trends in the …

Real Estate – Buy Low and Sell High

There are always stories of smart investors who take advantage of the downturns in real estate cycles, downturns in the stock markets, or overall downturns in the economy. While some people ‘hunker down’ or even panic during the difficult periods, others look for opportunities, or specifically wait for the opportunity cycle to come, as it has now.
While one of the mantras of investing is to ‘Buy Low-Sell High’, this doesn’t always work out, does it? What we inevitably see is this: when something is ‘hot’ (like home rentals or condos recently), everyone rushes in to buy, but when it drops or freezes up, everyone panics and sells (or tries to sell). Often we ‘Buy High – Sell Low’, and that is a pity. Of course, when it comes to the realty world, an added culprit has been financing. Some investors over-financed, or when everything else in their portfolio and …
