Save For Your Future by Investing in Real Estate

By: Huntsville Real Estate Expert Mike Manosky On January 17, 2020

Investing in real estate is a time-tested way to successfully build wealth.  While there are many ways to invest your savings, investing in real estate is unique in that it offers cash-flow, liquidity, profitability, and tax and diversification benefits that other investments do not.  If you’ve been thinking about how to build wealth for your retirement, you would be smart to consider investing in real estate. Diversification into Real Estate

There are four primary ways to make money in real estate:

  1. When a property increases in value, you have real estate appreciation. Sometimes is happens due to changes in the market and other times it may be due to upgrades made on the property.
  2. Cash flow income (rent). Cash flow income is a nice perk of real estate investment that you don’t have in other types of investments. It is generated when you purchase a home or apartment building or an office building and rent them out.
  3. Real Estate Income. This is income earned by people who earn commissions through real estate transactions or buy property managers who oversee the operations of rental properties.
  4. Ancillary Real Estate Income. – This can be a huge source of profit. Things like application fees, vending machines and laundry facilities are money makers that go beyond the monthly rent. 33 Ways to Generate More Property Income Beyond Fees

While there are certainly risks involved when investing in real estate, there are a lot of benefits that outweigh the risks: Here Are the Biggest Risks of Investing in Real Estate

  1. Real estate is something that people who grew up lower to middle class are familiar with. They may not have been exposed to things like stocks and bonds, but they likely know the importance of owning a home.  Buying a home is an investment that is reachable for them.
  2. Having an investment that you can see; something that is tangible, is psychologically important.
  3. You have the control in a real estate investment. You don’t have to worry as much about being defrauded the way you might when entrust your money to someone else to invest for you.
  4. You will reap the benefits of tax advantages. 8 Real Estate Tax Advantages of an Investment Property
