REAL ESTATE INVESTING

You must decide whether your investment strategy will be short term or long term, since both require a completely different approach in the buying criteria and the type of properties to select.

SHORT TERM INVESTMENT PLAN

The short-term strategy expects to make quick gains through a fixer-upper, buying at a great price and adding value through well-chosen repairs and improvements. If the property appreciates in value during the time you have it, that's a bonus.

The risk includes the following options:

  • Underestimate the cost of repairs and improvements
  • Underestimate the execution time of the repairs and improvements
  • Repairs and improvements may not add enough value to the property to recover the investment
  • Risk of depreciation of property value

LONG TERM INVESTMENT PLAN

The long-term strategy looks forward to achieve a positive cash flow, tax benefits and capital appreciation.

The risk includes the following options:

  • Real estate investment can lose value
  • Real estate investment may not appreciate according to your expectations
  • Risk of not finding tenants
  • Risk of not receiving enough income to cover the monthly expenses
  • Tenants could not pay the rent on time
  • Tenants may not take good care of the property
