Should real estate be a part of your investment portfolio?

If you’re thinking about investing in real estate, then you’re about to start one of the best investment experiences of your life. Indeed, we think there are plenty of opportunities in investing. However, we also have an acute awareness that not all real estate is “good investment”. We work with clients to help them understand real estate returns and total return on investment. Not just the rudimentary cash flow or cash on cash return calculations, but also total returns that let you evaluate the potential (and limitations) of properties that you are considering.

We use the acronym IDEAL to bring in the different aspects of an investment property. 

Income – This talks about income that is coming in and rent that is being paid.

Depreciation – A tax tool that can be beneficial.

Equity – Growth that comes from a tenant paying down the mortgage.

Appreciation – The value of the property that tends to go up eventually.

Leverage – You can borrow money to buy real estate so that your returns are multiplied. 

Investing in Real Estate

The video below will help you understand each element better by breaking them down with examples. The model we use to calculate real estate return is also explained on the video. Watch the video below to further understand and calculate what the return is. 

Talk with us about your investing goals. Let’s help you develop and execute a plan for your real estate portfolio. Whether it is ultimately one unit, or hundreds of units, we’re here to help! 

We have a strong belief in real estate investing as a vehicle for growing wealth. We work hard to provide the needed data and guidance to help you make profitable choices.
