Online Investment – Real Estate
August 22, 2006
Online investment in real estate and property development can generate returns with high profits. Find the advice, banking, finance and portfolio management services you need online to build your investing strategy
Real estate investment has a higher return for a lower risk than any other form of investment. Cash flow from rental and income property can pay finance charges so the cash outlay for a down payment buys much more in actual real estate value and someone else pays it off for you!
Real estate investment is not foolproof. Good advice and a solid investment strategy, financing at a reasonable rate, and knowledge of the market are all necessary to be successful.
Real estate development is very high risk. The financial returns are also very high. A successful real estate developer knows the market, has access to reasonable financing, and carries a casual attitude toward financial disaster.
Every successful real estate developer has stories about slow approvals, labour shortages or other labour difficulties, delays due to weather, and other things that slow real estate development projects. With millions of dollars of finance paying interest at three or four times prime, the profit can disappear or turn to loss on as big a scale as the projected profits.
Online information and services have made investment in real estate a worldwide market. Hot spots like Phoenix, Chandler, Scottsdale and Gilbert in Arizona have attracted investors from California to Hong Kong.
There are real investment opportunities world wide, but don’t overlook your own back yard. You know your local market better than foreign investors. If your local mill or factory or hospital expands, housing will be in greater demand. Waterfront communities have great opportunities when they’re “discovered”. Early investment in some small locations can pay big profits to real estate investors who recognize the opportunity.
