Investors often diversify their investment portfolio with real estate, which takes careful thought and planning. While the stock market tends to be somewhat volatile, investing in residential real estate tends to appreciate in value over the long term.
Many investors believe that a bigger investment risk will give them a greater return. This is not always the case in residential real estate. To minimize your investment risk, it is necessary to analyze the location, capital investment, and potential returns. If these factors are properly weighed, the investment risk can be less than other investment options, making residential real estate a good investment.
The first step towards a residential real estate investment is determining your investment strategy. In today’s market, financing options are constantly changing. Property Connections works with experts in the field to keep current with the best options are available to our investors. Before purchasing any real estate it’s wise to ask some very important questions. Can I qualify for a mortgage? What tax benefits can I expect from an real estate investment? What is my holding period? How will a larger down payment affect my cash flow and return on my investment? At the end of the holding period, should I cash out or reinvest?
Unless you are paying cash for your residential real estate investment, you are going to need to qualify for a mortgage of some amount. Although there are many mortgage bankers in the Austin area, Property Connections works with several that can quickly and professionally qualify the investor for a loan and determine the amount the investor can borrow, the interest rate, and mortgage costs. To begin your mortgage qualification right now, give us a call.
