Real Estate Investing for Everyone

ENDVEST Aug 5, 2015

Real estate investment is pretty much the same as any other investment. The focus is on the word ‘investing’. When you’re doing any kind of investing, you’re putting ‘in’ things. Your effort, time, money, sacrificing other things (opportunity cost), the fear and risk and so on. You’ll note the word has no connotations pertaining to ‘return’. It speaks only about ‘investing’ or ‘putting in’. This is surprising considering the common notion where investing is almost always associated with ‘return’ and rarely seen as a close-ended street. Which holds true, the returns or the one-sided effort? Read on to improve your understanding.


Real estate investment, if done right, has potential for some serious gains. We’re being subjective here, doing it right has numerous meanings varying situation to situation; same goes for ‘serious gains’. However, a general overview of the real estate industry shows it outperforming many other investment options with quite a noticeable lead. According to a survey and several one on one interviews, experts have shared insights into what makes for an ideal mindset and approach for a successful real estate investment. The crux of it all comes down to this: Real estate investing may be for you if you can keep a cool head, distinguish emotion from cold, hard facts and logic and have the patience to sacrifice a good ‘now’ for a great ‘later’.


A barrier to real estate has been the gigantic startup capital it requires of investors. However, given the recent legislature passed on crowd funding, micro investing firms have managed to subdue the behemoth real estate industry and open its gates to amateur or working-class investors. Starters can check out different real estate investor websites to get a feel for the market and different options available before deciding where to start. You can contact a real estate investment company as well for a more personal and precise briefing.


As mentioned earlier, real estate funding options are not limited anymore. Rather than trying to get a loan and put everything at risk, one can play it safe by pooling into a real estate crowd funding gig with a share or two. Once they have the finesse (and the capital) for it, investors can spread their game to loftier markets. The real pleasure lies in making gains; for starters to receive rent checks works just as well as entire value appraisals in bigger settings.
