for your first investment
All the real estate investment mistakes that you may fear have already been made
before so, with a good analysis and study of your investment, you can avoid them very
Here are some tips that will help you in the future if you decide to enter the wonderful
world of real estate investments:
1.Buy your own home before investing in a rental Renting property has many short-term benefits, but buying your own residence can give you the experience of accessing the financial world of things. When you buy your own home, you are likely to get better interest rates and you will need a much lower down payment. You should also take into account tax cancellations. At the time you see fit, use your old home as a rental or move on to your home and invest in the second rental property.
2.Let logic winEmotional decisions will play tricks on you if you want to invest. We are people with emotions and it is all very well to listen to the heart but you must think logically when buying a property as an investment. When emotions kick in, remember that this is a business decision.
Know your market
Who would be your ideal customer and how do you hope to attract them? When you are
clear on the answers to these questions, let the research inform your decision. You need
to make sure the location is attractive to the customer you have in mind.
Another very important consideration is whether your property will have a long-term rental
or if it is only for vacation. Vacation rentals typically offer higher returns and more opportunities
for tax relief.
Secure the advance and create a budget
If you have been thinking about investing in real estate for a long time, it is very likely that you already have secured financing. If not, make sure before you are prepared with a 20-30% down payment and that you have chosen the best mortgage. Create a budget for the purchase, maintenance and any renovations, estimate the costs associated with the security of the tenants and the possible problems that may arise. Let your budget guide your investment decision.
