Real Estate Investing with Different Perspective

Dear All

Investing in real estate has gotten a lot of awareness over the last few years. Unfortunately however, many people still think this to be something for ‘the big boys’. This kind of black-and-white idea is stimulated by our beliefs, which are basically fed by the media. In movies and TV shows the company of real estate is regularly associated with millionaires and even billionaires. Because most people don’t plummet into one of these categories, it’s painless for them to think real estate to be something that’s out of their league. They might say something like “I’m no Donald Trump, so I can’t do it!”. Have you ever heard anybody make a statement like that? Have you ever thought something along those lines yourself? Odds are your answer to one or both of these questions is “yes”.

Let’s take a look at the world around us to see if our assumptions about what it takes to be in real estate are correct. If you were to look at all the real estate around you, you would quickly find that the maturity of properties are residential. Home owners are real estate investors and as you perhaps know, most home owners are not millionaires. Owning your own home can be a great first move for a number of reasons. Obviously, as the value of your house increases, so does your net worth. However the increasing benefits doesn’t end there. The appreciation of your house over time not only builds your net worth, but it can also give you a great opportunity for creating some leverage. By refinancing your home, you can put overkill money in your hands that you can use to invest in other properties. This could be another residential home generating rental income, but you could also look at commercial real estate.
