Real Estate: What Should You Invest In?

By Henry C Drake

There are plenty of elements to consider whenever buying real estate. You should be prepared to answer several questions like where does the property cash flow? Which kind of mortgage should I get? How much down payment should I have? And you will probably also ask, “What type of real estate should I buy?”

That is a fair question. You should be able to both afford the property by having the renter help make your mortgage payment for you but you want to have a property that is attractive to future tenants. Do you think that it is the perfect real estate to invest in?

One of the strongest points to consider when selecting real estate is location. As an example, by driving through a prospective area pay attention to the types of properties that line the streets. Are the residences mostly single family homes? Do you see an occasional duplex or fourplex in the location? Are there apartments and condos nearby?

When purchasing a real estate property, one of the factors you should consider is low vacancy rate. Whether you want to earn extra income or just increase the value of your home, you want to find tenants that would rent your property. In order to have a tenant, you want to invest in a property that other home seekers want to rent, own, or live in. Always search for that which sticks out and obviously has higher value. Does your potential purchase “stick out” as compared to other property? Is your new investment property the only duplex in the community?

So that you can know which investment works well in your favor, see which type of real estate is in demand in that certain community. If most of the homes are single family homes then you know there’s a need for single family homes. The same is said for a duplex or fourplex property. You can tell a demand for your prospective rental if there are other rental fees in your community that match yours.

It will be a lot easier to sell residences that are in demand in that area. You’re also doing the customer a favor since it is easier for them as well to get a mortgage. Lenders like properties to be similar in nature in any specific location. Make sure you pick what’s easier to sell.
