Protecting your Investment and your Income

If there is one thing an investment property owner doesn't want to happen, it is to lose money on an investment. The intention of an investment property is always to increase income and wealth; however, sometimes things can go wrong and what starts out to be a dream of building a strong financial future becomes a nightmare that costs money.   A rental property can become an endless money pit for various reasons, such as repairs that were not foreseen…

Advantages of Owning an Investment Property

Owning an Investment Property
Just like any other investments, owning an investment property is not something you engage in without proper knowledge. Many people tend to stay away from property investments, believing that the ROI is not as big as what you can get from investments such as stocks. Property investments done right, however, can bring in significant returns.   Aside from the income you potentially can reap, there are other benefits and advantages that property investments can bring to the investor. These advantages…

Why do you Need Help Managing your Property

We all know that making a good investment means doing your homework properly but also that, once you choose properly, only minimal maintenance is required. Being a property owner should be no different – you generally don’t usually manage your own investment fund portfolio – you pay a fund manager to do so for you. In return, you get to sit back and enjoy the benefits of leaving your money in the hands of someone who has the knowledge and…

Things to Consider When Looking for the Perfect Rental Property

There are many benefits to renting as opposed to owning a home. First, there is the financial benefit. Buying your own home may be burdensome to some people who are just starting to build a family or to someone not yet financially stable. Choosing to rent will give you an ample chance to start building wealth or to make other finances manageable. Renting also gives you the leeway to choose a home of your choice. If ever you find something…

Investing in your Future

Investment in property has always been a popular way to grow wealth. There is a reason for the saying, “As safe as houses.” The down side to real estate investment does not lie in the investment itself but in the administration of rentals and in dealing with the actual tenants. In theory, a rental agreement is fairly simple – you both sign a lease and the tenant pays over the money every month.   In reality, however, things are slightly…

Understanding Fees to Property Managers

Successfully running a rental property usually means acquiring the services of a reliable property manager. The property manager takes care of a lot of things for the property owner, including looking for a good tenant for the property, collecting rent and checking if repair or maintenance work is needed in the premises. Service quality should be the prime consideration when choosing a property management company to entrust your property. But the fee schedule should also give you a hint of…

When Selling Properties, the Best Time May Be Now

Investors in real estate basically put money in properties in the hope that the investment would yield them profits eventually. One good way of making a profit off your property investment is to sell it at a higher price than when you purchased it, plus the cost of the improvements that you may have put into the property. Currently, many property investors are unsure about selling their property as real estate prices are on a downward trend. Some would-be sellers…

Suburban Living

When we think of suburban living, we think of a wholesome environment to raise kids in a gorgeous garden and friendly neighbours. Suburbs are especially popular with young families raising young kids. They are not without their dangers though. Although generally safer than an inner city environment, there are still criminal elements even in good suburbs and you should consider installing a home alarm system.   Suburban living seems to have it all – a quieter place to raise kids,…

Determining the Value of Real Estate Properties

Determining the value of a property is a job of a real estate appraiser. Property value means the fair market value of a piece of real estate property. The actual value may be higher or lower, depending on the size and location of the real estate, and any improvements on the land.   Looking at the sales history of similar properties in comparable neighbourhoods is the most common means of determining property values. Real estate appraisers will base the value…
