Making the right real estate investment decision could be challenging if the investor is not properly guided by a real estate investment professional. In making real estate investments, one needs to know the various types of profitable real estate investments.
There are properties acquired for occupation while also there are properties acquired solely for investment purposes. Property owned as an investment may either be freehold, or leasehold.
One interesting feature about real estate is that even in a bad economy, it will usually fare better than stocks. Land, after all, is a finite resource. People need a place to live, work, shop and play so real estate is really a matter of supply and demand. The reason for an investment comes with the expectation that such investment will increase in value and generate positive returns with prospect of later benefits.
Real estate investment can generate positive returns in two ways; by yielding a flow of income, and by generating a return of capital, whether it be less than, equal to or in excess of the initial amount invested. Real estate will continue to appreciate despite occasional slow-downs in the economy like we currently have in Nigeria. In fact, it’s proven to be the best way to create wealth, and an investor need not be a genius or a millionaire to succeed.
For someone interested in real estate investment, most important things to be conversant with are business terms relating to the industry some of which include net income and debt financing payments, property price, and total return on investment, therefore making decisions of this nature requires proper information.
