Benefits of Investing in Real Estate

Benefits of Investing in Real Estate

Investing in real estate is a huge step in your life. It is a great way to boost your retirement portfolio and get extra tax benefits, but it can be a hard step to make depending on your nerves. While there is a lot that goes into real estate investing and you will have tough days, there is also a lot of great benefits that you can get from it. Today, I am talking about just that! Below, I have listed off a few benefits of investing in real estate.

A steady stream of income

Of course, purchasing real estate takes money out of your pocket, but once you get a tenant settled in, the income starts flowing back in. Always make sure you are charging enough to cover your mortgage payment, insurance, and any other mishaps such as leaks, storm damage, break-ins, etc. According to Equities, “Passive income real estate investing is one of the most popular ways to invest in the real estate market. It is called passive income because it is a property that generates income for the owner without the owner having to be hands-on in the process. Passive real estate investment is a great tool for creating a steady stream of income, producing retirement funds quickly, and retiring earlier than expected. Not to mention, having passive real estate income after retirement will help you to live a fuller life, thanks to the added income. The first step is to invest in an area with a high potential for an increase in value. Then to take a low-interest loan against the property. The second step is to set the rental price. Taking under consideration the following charges: Mortgage, taxes, insurance, maintenance, and property management services fee. The rental should cover the charges plus your monthly profit on your investment.”

Tax benefits

Engineered Tax Services says, “Real estate investing can be a risky venture — especially in today’s economy. Engineered Tax Services (ETS) works with property owners to strengthen their investments and increase their return on investment through our specialty tax services. As a commercial property investor and owner, there are several IRS-sanctioned tax benefits within your reach designed to uncover hidden value and profitability within your investments.

Some of those studies are EPAct Tax Deductions, Cost Segregation Studies, Reserve Studies, Disposition Studies, Historical Tax Credits, New Market Tax Credits, and Insurance Replacement Appraisals. While you technically could figure out the tax benefits on your own, you definitely want to hire a company that is knowledgeable in tax benefits to make sure that you are getting the most benefit from your investment.

Reduced risks

Investing in commercial real estate has reduced risks because the people you rent your building (or buildings) out to will be invested in their own business, and the front of that is your building. They will want to keep the building looking nice, clean, and respectable. This is a great thing to you because you know that you will not have anyone destroying your building from throwing parties, etc. Longer lease terms are also preferred with commercial real estate, which is a benefit to both you and your tenant. In addition to better tenants, Forbes says, “you can invest in real estate today and own both residential and commercial property, even foreign real estate, using real estate exchange-traded funds (ETFs). In a well-designed retirement portfolio, a smallholding in real estate acts as a hedge against inflation that generates income, similar to bonds but with the inflation-dampening effects of commodities investments. The bottom line is that you can be a real estate kingpin without taking out a loan or visiting a single office building under construction. More people should own at least some real estate beyond their own home mortgage, and ETFs offer a way to do so at minimal risk.”

  3. My father was recently talking about real estates. This post cleared a lot of stuff for me.

  4. Couldn’t have agreed more. Investment in property is the most secure form of investment one can have. And to have a cash flow out of it is like having double the value. Your post makes it seem easier to have this accomplished.

  5. I couldn’t agree more, we have a couple of properties that have helped us with steady income

  6. Real estate is one of the best investment nowadays. It never depreciates the value. Just like Hermes bag.

  12. I never thought of investing in real estate. Well this is new to me. And I must say there is a lot more to learn about this business. Thank you.

  13. I do like investing in real estate – however, it is risky and people need to do a lot of homework before they buy. If you get it right, you can get a passive retirement income – property is a great way to get to financial independence. Find someone experienced in your area, and with the type of property you want to buy, and ask them to help.

  19. My husband and I have been discussing investing in a rental property. We’re still weighing out the pros and cons. It’s a good monthly stream of income, but there’s definitely a lot of responsibility. Our biggest fear is having to deal with an unruly tenant.

  20. I haven’t tried this before, but I know people who do. Maybe down the line! I would just be worried I’d get slobs moving in.

  21. Interesting, I have never really thought about investing in real estate, but I can see how it could be a great investment. I may have to look more into it.
