Real Estate Investment

Real Estate Investment

Real estate value generally constitute over one third of the investible capital markets for a developed nation. It is as large a class of investment as equities or bonds. As an investment class, it is generally seen as less risky than securities, but more risky than bonds - over the long term.

The one major drawback of investing in real estate for small investors is that most do not understand how to find a deal or the fundamentals of investment analysis. In fact, most of what we probably know comes from playing Monopoly. However, in real life the money is real - and your friends and relatives aren't the bank. Before you embark on your first investment in property, you need to have a firm grasp of the fundamentals. We are here to help.

On our site, you can access the free real estate investing guides. The guides are primarily for the small and beginning investor (under $5 million), but the fundamental concepts are applicable to most real estate projects. In fact, real estate follows the same basic philosophy of every product - demand must exist, and income must exceed expenses. Sound easy enough for you? Well, there is a bit more to it.
