Introduction To Investment Real Estate
investment real estate refers to properties that generate income for a buyer or are purchased with profit in mind, rather than as places for the buyer to live. in most cases, the investor collects lease or rental income from the tenants who live in the property. the investor can also benefit when the value of the property increases ? by selling the property for capital gain or using the built up equity to purchase additional properties. lisa buys a condo as an investment real estate. the rent from lease's tenants converts her mortgage payments. when she feels that the condo's value has risen enough, she can sell it for profit or hold onto it for the monthly rental income. but being a ? is not that simple, however. as a property owner, lisa is responsible for ?, finding tenants, collecting rent, insuring against liabilities and so on. lisa can hire a property management firm, an extra cost, to deal with the day to day stuff. but there are always ? some risks. the real estate market might fall, making the condo worth less than lisa pays for it, or more rental properties may open up, meaning that rents may go down because of competition. real estate, like other investments, carries specific risks and rewards. this is an example of direct investment in real estate. there are other ways to invest in real estate including real estate investment trusts, real estate mutual funds, real estate etf's and real estate investment groups.
