Real Estate Investing – Opportunities Abound

  1. 1. Real Estate Investing – Opportunities Abound The world of real estate investing has certainly changed over the past few years. It wasn’t so long ago that everything went up and everyone made money in real estate. Well with the major drop in real estate prices coupled with a more limited financing market, this is just not the case anymore. However there are still a lot of opportunities.For examples bargains abound in the real estate market. You canpurchase property for a fraction of what it cost just a few yearsago. At the same time the prices for rentals remains fairly strongsince many people have lost their houses and now requirerentals.This does open up some great opportunities for investing. Therealso some wonderful deals on foreclosures and short sales.Property can be purchased for a small fraction of what they oncewere. Many of the properties are suitable for rental income orthey can be purchased and then held for the long term.Financing rates remain at historic lows so the carrying costs forlong term investments are quite reasonable. The banks andlending institutions are much more stringent when it comes to thedeal. But this is for the investors benefit as well since it protectsboth parties.It is safe to say that real estate prices will eventually firm up andincrease over time. This means that good real estate investingwill not only result in strong rental income but they can generatecapital gains when held for the long term.DISTRICT REIA
