We believe that real estate investing, done properly and in an educated, logical manner, is the best investment available for the average person.

However, if it were actually easy, everyone would be doing it!

Here are a few of the challenges investors face on their own:

  • How to learn all the in’s and out’s of investing in properties.
  • Finding the right market to invest in (and the right time to invest).
  • Choosing right investing strategy and the appropriate kinds of properties to buy.
  • Creating a solid, experienced and effective real estate POWER TEAM.
  • Managing the acquisition process, handling property value enhancement, and planning a profitable exit are some of the challenges investors face independently. Mastering property management, including tenant acquisition and relationship management, is also crucial in this journey.

Fortunately for our joint venture partners, we have taken the time to become experts, and our team takes care of all these aspects. This allows us to provide a handsfree investments for them.

BLOG #17: Real Estate vs. Banking Your Money

Why Real Estate Keeps Your Money Working For You

Here’s a question you might have been asking yourself: Is it better to invest your money, or hold onto it by keeping it in the bank?

There are so many old adages about money and investing, and perhaps the most important and relevant one? “Make your money work for you!” Another common phrase is “You have to spend money to make money!”, and that’s what’s at the center of the answer to this question. These sayings may be well-worn at this point, but they hold some truth.

When you leave your money in the bank, it does very little besides just sitting there. Sure, having a big number on your account balance looks nice, and it is useful to have some liquid assets you can tap into, but if you’re looking to really pump up your net worth, you’re going to need to put your money into something. You’re going to need to invest

There are a lot of options for you when you set out to start investing, and real estate is one possible investment. It’s a popular choice, and for good reason.

Why Real Estate Does the Job

Real estate is an evergreen investment, because it has tangible, actual, inherent, and real value. People are always going to need places to live, and so, as long as there are people, there’s a demand for real estate. 

When you leave your money to languish in the bank, you’re trading the chance to have a tangible asset to your name for a bigger number on your account statements. That number is nice to look at, but you know what’s even nicer? Being able to drive past an apartment building, knowing that it’s yours, that it’s making you money, and that you made the right choice.

When you’re deciding what to do with your money, it’s worth remembering that doing something with it—anything, really—is how you make a profit. Money sitting in the bank isn’t doing you any good. But investing in real estate, thus using your money to make more money? Utilizing your intangible monetary resources in order to put your name on something real and eternally valuable? Now that’s smart.

BLOG #16: Mutual Funds vs Real Estate

Investing in Mutual Funds vs Real Estate

When you have money you want to put to good use, you may be tempted  by any number of investment options. Two popular options that often come to mind include mutual funds and real estate. But which one truly comes out on top and why? Today, we will explore that.

What Are Mutual Funds?

Mutual funds pool money together with other investors. Supplemented with a portfolio, you receive a group of stocks, bonds, or additional securities in exchange for your money. 

The value of the portfolio’s assets divided by the amount of shares is what determines the pricing of mutual funds called the NAV, or net asset value. However, know that the investor doesn’t actually own the assets themselves—only the shares.

Also note that each mutual funds investment carries their own goal, portfolio and risks. Fees can potentially arise and cause a reduction of returns which might make mutual funds not a great option for you.

What About Real Estate?

On the other hand, real estate is another way to invest your money. Real estate investing is the process of buying, owning, leasing, or selling properties (land or buildings) for profit. 

Real estate usually falls into four distinct categories:

  • Residential: homes
  • Commercial: businesses
  • Industrial: warehouses, factories
  • Land: farming, ranches

Investing in real estate can take on many different forms. Maybe you choose to invest in properties directly and rent out units. Maybe you are just looking to diversify your portfolio and would prefer to take a more indirect approach to real estate.

No matter your needs or preferences, real estate can accommodate. 

Real Estate: The Better Investment Option?

Investing can be a risky business. Obviously, you want to be ensured when putting your money out there. 

Making up 60% of the world’s wealth and assets, real estate investing has previously proven itself to be a sound way to invest your money.

There are many benefits of investing in real estate, including:

  • Leverage, or the borrowing of capital to increase the potential profit, allows you to invest when you cannot buy the property yourself. 
  • Your investment in real estate provides ways to save on taxes, too. Your profits can be listed as capital gains with lower tax rates, and overtime, lower the tax basis with depreciation of your properties.
  • Finally, you’ll have more control over your real estate investments than you would with mutual funds. Instead of waiting for a profit of a stock, you are the person in  charge of prices, improvements of the property, and other forms of revenue at all times. 

Bottom line: real estate comes out on top as an investment option that is always relevant, accessible, and meaningful. While you cannot always predict what a market will look like, you can rest easy knowing that your assets are physical with evident value, unlike mutual funds, which can fluctuate wildly.
