Real Estate Investment & Real Estate Investing
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Real estate investing involves the purchase, ownership, management, rental and/or sale of real estate for profit. Improvement of realty property as part of a real estate investment strategy is generally considered to be a sub-specialty of real estate investing called real estate development.
Real estate is an asset form with limited liquidity relative to other investments, it is also capital intensive (although capital may be gained through mortgage leverage) and is highly cash flow dependent. If these factors are not well understood and managed by the investor, real estate becomes a risky investment. The primary cause of investment failure for real estate is that the investor goes into negative cash flow for a period of time that is not sustainable, often forcing them to resell the property at a loss or go into insolvency.
Terms for investments are everywhere in real estate. You may hear lenders, agents and brokers talking the real estate jargon. If you are finding a way to be a part of the real estate world for any type of investment, you will want to become familiar with the different terms that are used in real estate. The first one to define is comparable sales.
Often times, comparable sales will be termed as comps. These will be the basis of your real estate investment and are important to know. If you are looking at a property, always ask what the comps are on the property.
Your real estate agent, or you, will then look up a variety of factors to compare your property with the others around it. You can find these through various companies, the multiple listing service, (MLS), and even courthouses and newspapers.
Some of the comps that are included are the history of the property, the sales from the past, the sales of the other homes, the demographics of the area, and the different trends that have affected the sales. Anything that will affect the investment that you plan to make on the home is what you will need to look up when considering comps.
Why is it important to look up the comps. By doing this, you will know whether you are making the right investment or not. Technically, the value of the home should go up. At the same time, the value will need to be the same as the other homes. If you don't have a balance between the historical investments and the neighbourhood investments, you could end up paying too much.
When looking at cash flow, you should always begin with the comparable sales. This will give you a good idea about what is happening with the real estate that you are interested in and whether it is worth your time and investment. Finding the comps is the beginning to moving over the threshold and into your new home.
