In this post, learn about three real estate investments that can reliably produce good returns.
Residential Multifamily Units
For the purposes of real estate investing, a multifamily building can be anything from a simple duplex with a shared wall to a full-on multi-story apartment complex complete with parking garage and onsite amenities.
The key here is that you have multiple potential income streams from a single piece of rental property. As one multifamily building investor tells Business Insider, “the more doors, the better.”
With a multifamily property, you can be making money even if one or two units lie vacant for a month or two, whether due to maintenance needs or just a temporarily sluggish rental market.
Commercial Multi-Unit Office Space
With this type of real estate investment, here again you see a multi-unit concept, but instead of renting to singles, couples or families on the residential side, you will be renting space to solopreneurs, partnerships and corporations on the commercial side.
As My Stock Market Basics points out, you may earn less per unit on commercial property rental income than you would with multi-unit residential property rental income, but in exchange you will devote less time, effort and energy (not to mention money for repairs and maintenance) by investing in commercial property.
If you have the equity to get into the commercial real estate market in a growth area, you can be earning a stable return on investment without many of the typical headaches of dealing with tenants on the residential side of the real estate market.
Real Estate Funds
If, for some reason, you are not keen to invest the sweat equity into commercial or residential real property, you can still deal yourself into the real estate investment market by participating in real estate funds.
These funds work much like mutual funds do, using trusts or crowdfunding to help a group of real estate investors acquire an interest in residential or commercial property without the headaches that can come from outright ownership and day-to-day management.
Investopedia recommends these possibilities:
With these three options to choose from, you are likely to find a real estate investing entry point that works for your budget, available time and goals. The best thing about investing into real estate is that there really is no one “right” or “wrong” strategy to use that can guarantee success. Rather, by doing your research, planning carefully and always aiming to operate from a cash surplus, you can set yourself up for ultimate success.
