Mar 29, 2008
A smart investor's earning potential is really high, as a Real Estate property only appreciates with the passage of time. With the booming Real Estate markets, the youngsters have actually started looking at Real Estate investments as great options to secure their future. There is nothing wiser than buying a flat at a young age, when your liabilities are low, and then selling it at peak at double its purchase price. To reap benefits, you need to however sow smart. As in, there is a lot of groundwork involved in finalizing a property and investing in it.

Invest smart
You need to study the Real Estate market well before finalizing the property in which you want to invest. The key areas where you should focus are: condition of the house, locality in which the house is located, prevailing rentals in that particular area, infrastructure of the area in terms of availability of recreational, health, and transport facilities in the area. Resale value of a house located in a developed area is huge; hence, prefer buying a flat in a developed locality.

In case your budget doesn't permit you to buy an apartment in a posh area, then there is no harm in finding options in an under-developed or developing area, provided you study the area plan well.

Understand your need
For a smart investment, it is important that you understand your need well. For instance, if you plan to live in the property that you are planning to buy, it is wise to buy a house with multiple units. Such properties help you lower down cost of living and utilize rents obtained from other parts of the property to pay mortgaged loans, if any. In case, if you are looking at buying a property that is already on rent, make it a point to assess the records of the tenants before finalizing the purchase.

It is better if you take professional help to identify your needs and formulate a suitable plan of action, and then execution. A Real Estate broker, with his rich experience in the industry and rich database of properties, can help you zero down your search very well.

Choose a finance option
If you are looking out for some financing options to purchase your property, you may visit a mortgage broker, to help you in finding suitable finance options at a good cost. Nowadays, most brokers offer this value-added service to their clients, so that the deal is fast without the client having to initiate the tedious bank procedures on his own. Find out if your real agent has a tie up with a bank or any other financial institutions. You need to however do some comparative analysis to get the best interest rate for a reasonable tenor.
