What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Investing Into Real Estate?

By Shaun Rosenberg

If you are just beginning real estate investing and would like to know exactly what the pros and cons of buying and renting properties are look no further then right here.

Here is a brief summary of what the advantages and disadvantages of becoming a landlord actually are.

Here are the major benefits of this strategy.

1. Rent Money

The Biggest advantage of real estate investing is obvious. You get a passive income stream that can grow as time goes on. Once you have a tenet in the property you will get rent money each and every month without having to do much. This means you get consistent checks in the mail and a passive income stream that will keep growing as time goes by.

2. Appreciation

Houses are valuable assets. As land becomes more scarce houses will appreciate over time and landowners should benefit from this. In fact historically landowners have been the richest people in the world in part because the land keeps appreciating.

There are also some disadvantages of real estate investing.

1. The Tenet May Not Pay

Tenets do agree to pay you rent. But what happens if they don’t? You have to go through an eviction process and it is a real hassle. You might at times go through 6 months or more without rent money but still have to pay things like the mortgage on the house.

2. Damaging the Property

Tenets might also damage the property. If they do you’ll have to repair it. A lot of tenets really don’t care about their rentals and any damages that it might get as much as the person who actually owns the house.

Well these problems seem pretty scary. But you can solve them by doing a rent to own contract. This way the tenets feel like they own the property and will take better care of it. Leaving you with a more secure income.

Real Estate investing really can be a great way to build your wealth and get some extra income. It should be something to take into consideration when planning your financial future.

Real estate investing is just one of many ways to create some extra income for yourself and to build your wealth.
