The Ultimate Beginner's Guide to Buying Real Estate Rentals

What can investing in real estate do for you?

Investing in real estate builds wealth. The benefits are numerous and include cash flow from rental income, appreciation, principal paydown, inflation hedge, tax savings, debt leverage and equity leverage.

Define your goals

Defining your goals is deciding what investment strategy you prefer and putting an action plan together to get started. 

Questions that you should answer: Do you want to quit your job now? (hint: don’t) Do you want to buy and rent properties? Do you want to flip houses? What is your risk tolerance? 

Find the perfect time to start

The perfect time to start is NOW. There is never a better to start investing than NOW.  

Procrastination is your worst enemy. Investing as early as possible in your life is the single most important thing to keep in mind when you are overthinking “timing”.

Financing a real estate property

Financing a real estate property requires decent understanding of the financing options available. Knowing your finances, understanding and maintaining a good credit history should be a priority especially if you are new to real estate investing. 

Analyzing a rental property

Analyzing a rental property is citical. Without analyzing a rental property, there is no way of knowing if the investment is even worth considering. Analyzing a rental property is a process that varies from one investor to another. Some tend to do it on the fly, others tend to use spreadsheets religiously. While there may be several variables and factors involved in analyzing properties, one thing is always true, investors analyze properties to determine if they are worth investing in, and so should you.

Common pitfalls to avoid

The world of real estate investing is a vast world full of complexities and intricacies. While your first real estate investment deal does not and should not have to be too complicated, it remains perhaps somewhat difficult and risky. Inherently, you can be prone to making mistakes simply because you are new to the subject and just starting out.

For that reason, it is imperative that you learn from other people’s mistakes. Doing your homework and paying close attention to detail will help diminish the chance of failing in your first real estate deal.  

“Learn from the mistakes of others. You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.” ― Groucho Marx
