Although many real estate investors purchase property in order to offset their stock market investments, there are some ways that investing in real estate can be similar. This is primarily in the way that you go about finding the very best deal.
For those who are savvy investors in the stock market, it isn’t likely that you will purchase many stocks at their high point – especially if you are planning to hold those shares for a long period of time.
Rather, you are probably more apt to go along with Warren Buffet’s rule of purchasing stocks that are good values when most other market investors are afraid to dip – or keep – their toes in the vulnerable stock market waters. In doing so, you are more likely to make a profit when those stocks turn around.
The same principle holds true when it comes to investing in real estate. Here, you will be looking for property that you can purchase for “wholesale” prices – even if they may need a bit of fix up. If you run the numbers and the investment is worth moving forward with, you are likely to get a great deal.
In some cases, even if you have to invest $10,000 or $20,000 into a property, you can often add much more to the overall value of the property – which is why investing in real estate can be so attractive to those who are seeking to maximize their returns.
For those who don’t want to spend a lot of time managing their investment property once it has been purchased, there is an easy solution to that, too. By working with a professional property manager, you can still reap the benefits of your long-term real estate investment, while freeing up your time to pursue other things.
