Real Estate Learning For Beginners

Aug 17, 2007
Understanding the various concepts and techniques of real estate investments can be difficult, especially if you are new to this field and do not have any knowledge of finance. Real estate investments are considered a risky preposition for beginners, as the stakes are high and if you are not careful, you can lose big bucks in a few years time.

If you are new to real estate, you need to realize that big bucks start flowing in only after taking calculated risks and being prudent in selecting the type of property. You need to be aware that being nervous is not a bad thing at all and you have every right to be cautious, as a serious mistake can be disastrous. However, you need not be cautious to the point of being paralytic and should develop the ability to overcome your fears if you are going to become a successful real estate investor. To overcome your fears and nervousness, you need to gather as much information as you can about all kinds of properties such as land, apartment buildings, homes, commercial buildings and more. You can obtain the required information from commercial brokers, Internet, and auction houses. You need to meticulously go through all the collected information for understanding the various nuances of real estate investments. You also need to understand that although information is necessary, it is not a replacement for experience. So, start your real estate career by investing small amounts in relatively low risk properties whose prices are most likely to go up in the future. This will give you the much needed confidence and motivation to make big bucks from real estate investments.

You can follow any real estate investment strategy based on your financial standing, your investment objectives, and the level of risk you are willing to take. Even if you do not have the required amount of cash, you can get started by finding a bargain house and selling the contract to another real estate investor. If you are aiming at regular monthly returns from your investments, find properties that will rent for more than your mortgage payment. Maintaining a positive cash flow every month can be achieved by getting the lowest interest rate loan, as every time you pay your installment, more of it will go towards the principal.

If your focus is on profits, then give less importance to the monthly income and invest in properties whose prices are anticipated to increase three to four times in the future. You need to be aware that for investing in such properties, you need to have the required financial depth to be able to hold on to the investments for many years until you can get top dollars for your property. Sell when the market is booming and if there is a slump, just concentrate on buying newer properties, as the markets are sure to rebound over time. Converting your current property into a more worthwhile use also helps in attracting a higher price. For example, converting a home into office space may give you more return. You can follow any of these strategies or use a combination based on your financial situation and short term & long-term goals.
