Real Estate Investment Options to Consider
For many, real estate is simply owning a piece of land or property only for the sake of investing. Only an expert understands that investing in real estate property requires a lot more study. Let’s deep dive and learn more about different kinds of real estate options:
- Real estate, so this will be someone who buys properties for investment purposes and then generates income from this investment by renting out the property.
- Mortgage investment entities (MIE), this is also popularly known as mortgage pool. So, this particular method follows the mortgage financing method where the financing is raised from the investors, which is later made available to the borrowers. The borrowers will use these funds for investing in commercial real estate properties or any other project that is currently under development.
- Syndicated mortgage investment, this investment option is often limited to only a certain locality, where only one particular firm is allowed to deal with real estate properties. One such famous example is Ontario, where only brokers with a license are permitted to deal with real estate and are allowed to engage in transactions.
- Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), this particular investment option is available for properties that are income-generating such as shopping malls or residential properties. For those willing to invest in public REIT, these options can be found on the stock exchange. However, to be able to make a purchase the investor needs to be eligible, which is similar to when you apply for a business loan or mortgage.
- Limited partnerships (LP), this option is usually considered by someone interested in first developing a property or working with only those properties that have already been completed. The documentation process for limited partnerships can be both easy and complicated.
Your investment preference
We all know and agree with the fact that not every real estate investor is the same. Therefore, when you look at the varied investments made by an individual or a firm, you will see a diverse portfolio.
The same is applicable for women, they take their own decisions and make their own choices when it comes to real estate investment. That being said, the investment portfolio made by women can be diverse as well.
Apart from what you have already decided, here are some investment types that you can pick according to your preference:
- Look for investment options that only need a quick flip. Such properties only require a quick fix before you pitch them to your existing client base and introduce it in the right market.
- Month-on-month rental properties, that come with reimbursement options, which are often on the higher side as compared to the funding required to operate in the market. In a certain duration, rents do increase, which means the property inevitably becomes more valued over the years.
- Often there will be certain properties that you would want to own for a prolonged duration. The investment and hold strategy is usually considered as a good strategy. However, many fail when it comes to coping with market fluctuations and it scares them, making them lose the property.
- Another good option is considering the properties that are still under the ‘under-construction’ phase. The beauty of this investment lies in understanding the future goals of this property and placing the ideal bid before anyone else has the chance to evaluate the property. Therefore, investing in a property in an earlier phase has its benefits.
