Blog #40: Real Estate Gives You the Reins

When you invest in the stock market, you are, in a way, gambling. You’re entrusting your money to the whims of someone else’s company. The stock market is a popular place to invest, but when you invest in it? You don’t really control what happens next. 

If you have shares in a company, sure, you might have the option to vote on things like who gets to be on the board of directors, but ultimately, what the company does is out of your hands. You’re just along for the ride.

Real estate is different. When you invest in a property, you have direct control over your investment. You decide exactly what you invest in, and what to do with it! You get to make decisions like:

  • What type of property you’re investing in
  • Where that property is located
  • What kind of market you’re buying in
  • What kind of financing you use
  • And perhaps most importantly, how the property is maintained or improved!

That last one is a big one. When you invest in real estate, you have a lot of options. You have a very serious and direct influence over the value of the property. You can choose to improve the condition of the property as you see fit, and in that way directly increase the amount of profit you can make from it, either by reselling it or by renting it out.

If you buy a property, you can do things like renovations that tangibly and immediately make it worth more than it was before. If you invest in the stock market, you’re counting on a company to perform well. Maybe it will, maybe it won’t. You don’t get to decide. You don’t have control.

With real estate, you get to make your own decisions as an investor. If a property is underperforming, there are steps you can take to get it in top-notch condition and help it get you the money you want and deserve. 

You want to have control over your financial future, right? Making the right investments is key to that. Investing in real estate means you’re handing yourself the reins of your own life. You get to make the decisions, and you get to take control.

Blog #39: Mutual Funds: Eggs in Too Many Baskets?

Investing in a mutual fund might seem logical. It’s an opportunity to let a seasoned investor decide where your money goes, and typically, the investments made by a mutual fund are fairly diverse. That is to say, they fall into a variety of markets, and as such you can feel protected. If one market doesn’t pan out, perhaps one of the other ones will.

A lot of experts say that diversification in your investment portfolio is a good thing, and to a certain extent, they’re right. Investing in, say, only one stock, is a bit of a dangerous move, because what if that stock crashes? But diversification can also be very dangerous.

If you invest in a mutual fund that invests in a hundred different companies, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ve reached optimal diversification. A lot of mutual funds invest specifically in a single industry, which means that you still face many of the same problems you would if you only invested in a single company. And what about mutual funds that invest in multiple industries?

At that point, you run into a problem of overdiversification, which is sometimes, adorably, called “diworsification”. 

If your money is in a million different companies, keeping track of how all those companies are doing is a nightmare. Another problem is that investing in a lot of companies means having to own a lot of stocks in each of them, meaning that you have to put in quite a bit of cash up front. And perhaps one of the biggest issues with overdiversification is the fact that having your cash scattered in all directions means that even if one stock is performing well, you still might not make money after you account for how another market is doing.

Now let’s think about another investment: real estate. It might seem on the surface that real estate is an investment inherently lacking diversity, but the truth is, there are all kinds of real estate. You can invest in single family homes, multi-family dwellings, or office properties. You can invest in different parts of your city, or even in other cities. There are plenty of ways to have diverse real estate investments, and yet it would be really difficult to run into a problem of overdiversification, because it’s all real estate.

Real estate is a reliable, steady investment. Everyone needs it, and so it’s not going anywhere. This is just one of the many reasons real estate could be the right investment choice for you.

Blog #38: Are Bonds Really Zero-Risk Investments?

Bonds are often touted as being very low-risk investments. Some would even go so far as to call them risk-free. But is that really the case? All investments come with risks to balance out their rewards, and bonds are no different. Here are a few of the risks you take on when you invest in bonds.

Interest Rate Risks

This is one of the best-known perils of bonds. The relationship between a bond and the interest rates in the market are complicated, but basically, supply and demand are at play in influencing the interest rate on the bond.

A bond you invest in might decline in value if interest rates rise. Yikes!

Inflation Risks

A bond is worth a fixed amount of money. If you invest 10,000 dollars in a bond, when it’s paid back to you, you’ll get 10,000 dollars.

Seems straightforward and risk-free, right? Nope!

You must remember that inflation is a factor in every economy. 10,000 one year is unlikely to have the same purchasing power five years from the date the bond is issued. In that way, there’s a good chance your bond is going to decline in total value, and that means money out of your pocket.

Default Risk

If you invest in bonds for a corporation, and that company goes under? Who knows what you’ll be getting back.

If the bank repossesses the assets of the company you’ve given your money to, well, that’s simply not your money anymore. It’s gone.

Takeaways?

Bonds aren’t the riskiest investment, sure, but they do come with their own set of risks. And that low risk deal that you think you’re getting also tends to come with low value and minimal rewards. 

Bonds aren’t a terrible investment, but they’re not necessarily the best one.

Real estate, on the other hand, is a great investment choice for anyone who wants to see their wealth grow surely and steadily. No matter what happens, if you invest in real estate, you can rest easy knowing that there’s a solid piece of land behind your money.

Blog #37: Riding the Wave: Your Guide to the Expansion Phase of Real Estate

The expansion phase of the real estate cycle is an exciting time for investors. This is when the market starts to pick up and demand for properties increases. If you’re considering real estate investing, now is a great time to start exploring your options.

Here’s your guide to the expansion phase of real estate and how you can ride the wave of growth to maximize your returns.

Understanding the Expansion Phase

During the expansion phase, the market is characterized by rising prices, low inventory, and high demand. This is when buyers are more active in the market and competition for properties can be intense.

As an investor, the expansion phase offers opportunities to find undervalued properties and capitalize on rising demand. This is also a time when you can benefit from an appreciation in property values, which can lead to higher returns on your investment.

Tips for Investing in the Expansion Phase

Here are some tips for investors who are looking to take advantage of the expansion phase of the real estate cycle:

Do your research: Before investing in any property, it’s important to do your due diligence. This includes researching the local market, analyzing trends, and understanding the potential risks and rewards of investing in a particular area.

Look for undervalued properties: During the expansion phase, it can be difficult to find properties that are undervalued. However, with some research and a little bit of luck, you can still find deals that offer great value.

Consider financing options: Financing is a key consideration when investing in real estate. During the expansion phase, it may be more difficult to secure financing due to increased competition for properties. Consider working with an experienced real estate investor to explore your financing options.

Don’t forget about property management: As a real estate investor, it’s important to think about property management from the very beginning. During the expansion phase, demand for rental properties may increase, so it’s important to have a plan in place for managing your properties effectively.

Stay flexible: Real estate investing requires a degree of flexibility. During the expansion phase, market conditions can change quickly, so it’s important to be adaptable and willing to adjust your strategy as needed.

Maximizing Your Returns

To maximize your returns during the expansion phase, it’s important to focus on finding properties that offer strong potential for appreciation. This means looking for properties in desirable locations with strong growth potential, such as areas that are experiencing population growth, job growth, or infrastructure development.

It’s also important to be patient and not rush into any investments. The expansion phase can be exciting, but it’s important to take a long-term view and focus on building a diversified portfolio of properties that can weather any potential downturns.

Conclusion

The expansion phase of the real estate cycle offers exciting opportunities for investors to find undervalued properties and capitalize on rising demand. By doing your research, staying flexible, and focusing on maximizing your returns, you can ride the wave of growth and achieve long-term success in the real estate market.

Blog #36: Get Your Mortgage Down, and Your Profit Up!

Real estate has a few things going for it that other types of investments don’t. You’ll recall that we’ve already talked about some of them, like the neat way that banks will help you out in investing in real estate by financing you via a mortgage. 

But mortgages aren’t all fun and games. Not only do you have to pay off the principal part of the mortgage (the actual amount borrowed), you also have to pay interest. Doesn’t sound great? Well, a great thing about real estate is that there’s a way around it. As the previous post mentioned, your tenants will be the ones paying the mortgage, not you. But there’s more to it than that. 

Most of the payments you make to your bank for the mortgage will be, at least in the beginning, going towards interest, rather than the principal. You want to get that whole mortgage, both principal and interest, paid off ASAP in order to reduce the expenses associated with the building and increase the profit margin of your cash flow. 

So, here’s what you gotta do. In addition to the regular payments you have to make towards the mortgage, it’s a good idea to make some extra payments to the bank, at least in the beginning, in order to knock out that interest as quickly as you can. That way, you can start chipping away at the principal portion of the mortgage, and start seeing your profits soar. 

And you’re not doing this alone. As previously stated, it’s your tenants’ money, not yours, that covers this bill. You just need to make sure you’re putting the cash where it needs to go.

Paying down your mortgage is a secret towards maximizing your real estate profits. It doesn’t seem as obvious at first as other profit centers like cash flow, but mark our words, if you play your cards right, you’ll be seeing some big savings on your property. And that, friend, is money in your pocket.

Blog #35: Your Guide to Hyper-Supply in Real Estate

Real estate investing can be both exciting and profitable, but it’s not without its challenges. One of those challenges is navigating the hyper-supply phase of the real estate cycle. In this phase, the supply of available properties far outweighs the demand from buyers or renters, leading to lower prices and longer holding periods for investors.

But fear not! With the right knowledge and strategies, you can not only survive but thrive during this challenging time in the real estate market.

First, let’s take a closer look at what hyper-supply is and why it happens. Hyper-supply occurs when there is an oversupply of properties on the market, leading to decreased demand and lower prices. This can be caused by a variety of factors, such as an influx of new construction, a decrease in population growth, or an economic downturn.

So, how can you navigate the storm of hyper-supply in real estate? Here are some tips:

  1. Research the market carefully: Before investing in any property, it’s crucial to research the local market carefully. Look at current and historical trends in supply, demand, and pricing. Analyze the demographics of the area to determine if there is potential for growth and demand in the future.
  2. Focus on quality properties: During hyper-supply, it can be tempting to invest in lower-priced, lower-quality properties. However, it’s important to remember that these properties may be harder to sell or rent out in a saturated market. Instead, focus on high-quality properties that stand out from the competition and will attract buyers or renters even in a tough market.
  3. Be patient: During hyper-supply, it may take longer to find buyers or renters for your property. This means you may need to be patient and hold onto your property for longer than you anticipated. However, with the right property and strategy, you can still make a profit in a hyper-supply market.In conclusion, hyper-supply can be a challenging time for real estate investors, but it’s not impossible to navigate. With careful research, a focus on quality properties, patience, and alternative investment strategies, you can still make a profit in this phase of the real estate cycle. So, don’t be discouraged by the storm of hyper-supply – instead, use these tips to ride the wave and come out ahead.

Blog #34: Appreciate Appreciation!

Appreciate Appreciation! (or, Why Real Estate is the Real Deal)

Investors are often faced with many tempting options to place their money, often with the promise of great financial returns in the future; unfortunately, with so much information out there (including significant misinformation), ambitious investors may wonder what the “right” option is. This is especially true when it comes to mutual funds, a compelling investment choice often touted for being low maintenance and yet high-reward. But are mutual funds all that they are made out to be? In this article, we will explore that more closely.

What’s the Deal with Mutual Funds?

Mutual funds are an investment vehicle in which multiple investors pool their money, which is then directed into various stocks or other investments by a money manager. 

Mutual funds seem like a decent investing option. Once you’ve chosen the fund you want to invest in, you don’t have to think too hard about what happens. It’s all fairly straightforward.

The thing is, that’s all that happens. You wait for your dividends, and then what happens? As it turns out, usually, not much. A mutual fund might appreciate monetary value and pay off—or, it might crash and burn. Look at it this way. When you invest in a mutual fund, you have a whole host of fees and charges to pay, for an investment that may or may not give you any positive return.

Why Real Estate Outshines Mutual Funds

So, how does real estate stack up to mutual funds? Well, real estate appreciates value over time. It’s a generally accepted fact of this type of investment that it will, after a few years, be worth more than you paid for it. As long as the property remains in good condition, it tends to appreciate value. This has to do with the fact that land is a finite resource. There’s only so much Earth, after all!

Mutual funds can stagnate, but real estate is an investment that you can count on. A good investment property will not only provide you with passive income while you own it (from the rent your tenants pay), but will also gain value that you’ll see when it’s time to sell. 

If you’re looking to start investing in real estate, there’s no time like the present! The sooner you invest, the sooner you start seeing the potential real estate has to appreciate value and put money in your pocket. Invest smart. Invest in real estate.

Blog #33: Why Real Estate Comes Out On Top

We all want to use our money wisely. For those of us with a little extra to spare, you might consider investing in real estate. If you’re stuck between investing in real estate and saving your money, here’s a quick guide to help you.

Keeping Money in the Bank

A lot of people choose to take their extra money and put it in their savings account. While they don’t get much back in return, they won’t lose any money. Most people figure that it’s easily accessible if they need it in the future. 

However, you miss out on the chance to make even more money if you keep it stashed away. You might earn a little bit of interest (though it’s usually less than the rate of inflation), but investing in real estate could earn you a lot more. 

Investing in Real Estate

Real estate has always been a favorite investment for people that want little risk and high returns. While it requires more money and time at the start, the passive income stream and possibly considerable appreciation more than make up for it. 

The biggest reason to invest in real estate is the tax benefits. You can receive lots of deductions, saving you anywhere from hundreds to millions each year, and you’ll still be earning through passive income. Here are some of the ways your real estate investment can get you tax benefits. 

Depreciation

The IRS allows you to list depreciation as a deductible expense on your taxes. Anything that depreciates, including real estate, can be counted for a depreciation deduction.

Pass-Through Deductions

Pass-through deductions are covered under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Some business owners, including those who earn rental income, can deduct up to 20 percent of their net income from their taxes. 

Capital Gains

With a real estate investment, you have the option to pay capital gains tax rather than income tax, which is typically more expensive than capital gains.

Retirement

Some retirement accounts, like an HSA or an IRA, allow you to invest in real estate tax-deferred or tax-free.

Opportunity Zones

Opportunity zones offer reduced or eliminated taxes for real estate investments in the country’s most rural and distressed areas.

Why Real Estate Wins

If you’re trying to figure out what to do with your money in the long-term, invest in real estate. You’ll earn and save a lot more than you would if you keep it in the bank. The tax benefits alone are enough to show that real estate investments are the way to go.

Blog #32: Using a HELOC for Real Estate Investing

If you’re a real estate investor or thinking about becoming one, you’ve probably heard about the benefits of using a home equity line of credit (HELOC) to finance your investments. But did you know that a HELOC can also help you make your mortgage tax deductible? It’s true! In this blog post, we’ll show you how to unlock the secret to a tax-deductible mortgage using a HELOC for real estate investing.

First, let’s talk about how a HELOC works. A HELOC is a line of credit that’s secured by the equity in your home. You can borrow against this line of credit as needed and only pay interest on the amount you borrow. This can be a great way to finance your real estate investments because the interest rates are often lower than traditional loans.

Now, let’s talk about how to make your mortgage tax deductible using a HELOC. The key is to use the borrowed funds from your HELOC to pay off your mortgage, effectively turning your mortgage into a business loan. As a result, the interest you pay on the HELOC becomes tax deductible because it’s now considered a business expense.

But it’s important to note that there are some limitations to this strategy. The IRS has certain rules and requirements that must be met in order to make your mortgage tax deductible. For example, the borrowed funds must be used for business purposes, and you must be able to prove that the HELOC funds were used to pay off your mortgage. It’s also important to consult with a tax professional to ensure that you’re following all the rules and regulations.

So, why should you consider using a HELOC to make your mortgage tax deductible? For starters, it can save you a significant amount of money on your taxes. Additionally, it can free up cash flow that you can use to reinvest in your real estate portfolio. Plus, it’s a relatively simple and straightforward strategy that can have a big impact on your bottom line.

In conclusion, using a HELOC to make your mortgage tax deductible is a powerful tool in the real estate investor’s toolbox. It can save you money, free up cash flow, and help you achieve your investment goals. If you’re interested in learning more about how a HELOC can benefit your real estate investing, we encourage you to reach out and book a call with us. We’d be happy to answer any questions you may have and help you explore your options.

Blog #31: Why Cryptocurrency Comes Up Short

Looking for a way to make extra money over time? If you have the means to do so, investing is always a good idea– as long as you’re making smart investments. Making risky investments in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin can certainly be thrilling, and it’s definitely become somewhat of a fad in recent years; it seems like everyone and their mother has money in some sort of cryptocurrency at the moment. But you should think twice before putting a significant amount of your savings into cryptos, no matter how good of an idea it seems in the moment. That’s because it doesn’t have any tangible backing, among other reasons.

If you’re looking to make a more promising investment, real estate investments could be one great and much safer, more tangible option. If you’re not quite convinced yet, just put down the DogeCoin for a second and let us explain why cryptocurrency comes up short when compared to real estate. 

Cryptocurrency and its risks

Your first question might actually be what, exactly, cryptocurrency is and how the infamous process of investing in it works. Essentially, a cryptocurrency is an electronic currency that does not physically exist, but still holds worth. The value of cryptocurrency goes up and down based on how many people are purchasing it– it’s all about supply and demand. So, if you buy cryptocurrency at a low price, you may be able to sell it for more money once it becomes more valuable. The key word here is may.

One of the risks of cryptocurrency is that it’s extremely volatile. What seems like a good investment one day could be thousands of dollars wasted the next. And while most investments come with the risk of losing your money, cryptocurrency poses another unique risk due to its intangibility. Cryptocurrency isn’t backed up by any physical assets– it’s all electronic. That means it’s susceptible to glitches, errors, and hacking. 

Real estate investment and its benefits

Meanwhile, real estate is one highly tangible asset that offers a much safer investment– it definitely has a physical form to back it up! It’s a whole house! While the fact that property can’t be hacked like cryptocurrency can is a huge plus, real estate investments also offer tons of other benefits: great, steady cash flow, tax breaks and deductions, and steady appreciation in value. It also comes with competitive risk-adjustment returns: over the past 50 years, the average annual return has been about 11%. 

While real estate is a long-term investment, the overall return will be worth the wait. Overall, it offers long-term financial security and a nearly guaranteed great return. This, along with its tangibility, makes it a more secure option by a landslide when compared to cryptocurrencies.

So before you jump on the next big cryptocurrency bandwagon, really think about the risk you’re taking and ask yourself if that money could be better spent on real estate. Sometimes it’s best to play the long game. Happy investing!

Blog #30: Bouncing Back: Your Guide to the Recovery Phase of Real Estate

Are you thinking of investing in real estate but don’t know where to start? Or perhaps you’ve been burned in the past and are hesitant to try again. Either way, understanding the real estate cycle is crucial to your success. In this blog post, we will explore the recovery phase of the real estate cycle, providing insights and tips for potential investors looking to bounce back.

Firstly, what is the recovery phase? As the name suggests, it is the stage when the real estate market begins to recover from a recession or downturn. This phase is characterized by low interest rates, increased demand, and rising prices. It’s a time when savvy investors can find great deals and make substantial profits.

So, how can you take advantage of the recovery phase? Here are some tips to keep in mind:

Research the market: Before investing in any property, it’s crucial to do your research. Look at recent sales data, rental prices, and local trends to get a sense of the market’s health. This will help you make informed decisions and avoid costly mistakes.

Focus on value: In the recovery phase, it’s important to focus on value rather than just buying the cheapest property available. Look for properties that have potential for growth or renovation, or that are located in up-and-coming neighborhoods. These factors can increase the property’s value and ensure a solid return on investment.

Be patient: While the recovery phase can be exciting, it’s important to be patient and not rush into any investments. Take the time to carefully evaluate each opportunity and weigh the risks and rewards. Remember, real estate investing is a long-term game, and a smart investment now can pay off in the future.

Work with an experienced investor: Real estate investing can be complex and daunting, especially for those new to the game. Consider working with an experienced investor who can provide guidance and expertise. They can help you navigate the market, identify opportunities, and make smart decisions.

In conclusion, the recovery phase of the real estate cycle is an exciting time for potential investors. By doing your research, focusing on value, being patient, and working with an experienced investor, you can make smart investment decisions and bounce back from any past setbacks. So why wait? Start exploring the opportunities of the recovery phase today and take the first step towards achieving your financial goals.

Blog #29: The Ups and Downs of Real Estate: Exploring the Cycle

Real estate investing can seem intimidating, but with the right knowledge and guidance, it can be a rewarding experience. One key aspect to understand is the real estate cycle, which is the pattern of ups and downs that the real estate market experiences over time.

The real estate cycle typically consists of four stages: recovery, expansion, hyper-supply, and recession. During the recovery phase, demand for real estate is low and prices are at their lowest point. This can be a good time to start looking for investment opportunities, as prices are likely to rise as demand increases.

As the market enters the expansion phase, demand for real estate starts to outstrip supply, leading to an increase in prices. This can be an exciting time to be an investor, as there are plenty of opportunities to make money. However, as the market approaches the hyper-supply phase, prices reach their peak and supply starts to outstrip demand. This is a signal that the market is starting to cool down and it may be time to be cautious.

Finally, during the recession phase, demand for real estate falls sharply and prices plummet. This can be a difficult time for investors, as they may be holding onto assets that are losing value. However, it’s important to remember that the real estate cycle is cyclical, and eventually the market will start to recover.

Understanding the real estate cycle can help you make informed investment decisions. For example, instead of buying at the peak of the market during the hyper-supply phase, you may want to consider waiting until the market cools down and prices start to fall. This can be a good time to find deals and make investments that will pay off in the long run.

If you’re new to real estate investing, it’s a good idea to work with an experienced investor who can help guide you through the process. They can provide valuable insights into the market and help you identify good investment opportunities. Additionally, they may have access to deals that aren’t available to the general public.

Of course, investing in real estate still requires research and patience. You’ll want to research different areas, understand market trends, and analyze potential deals. But with the right mindset and support, you can make informed decisions and achieve success as a real estate investor.

In conclusion, understanding the real estate cycle is an important part of being a successful investor. By staying informed and working with experienced investors, you can make smart investment decisions and achieve your financial goals.

Blog #28: An Investment You Can See and Touch

It’s a fact we learn in kindergarten that humans have five senses: sight, smell, taste, hear, and touch. Each of these senses helps us perceive and understand the world around us- our senses are the things that tell us what’s real and what’s not. That’s important because you want to know what you can count on, what’s got your back. One thing you can believe in is the ground beneath your feet. Wouldn’t you like an investment that’s as solid as that earth? What could you invest in that will provide you with that same sense of security?

Well, why not try investing in that very land? Owning property is a great investment for a lot of reasons, but one big one that many investors swear by is the fact that real estate is real. Think of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Those types of investments are intangible. You can’t touch the numbers that represent them, they’re just ideas. 

A piece of property, on the other hand, is a real, existing thing. Even if the economy were to take a nosedive, an investor who’d put their money in real estate would still have something to show for their investment. The land isn’t going anywhere! The amount of space on Earth isn’t changing. It’s not getting any smaller, or any bigger.

Think about what that means. Real estate is a market that has a fixed supply, so there’ll never be too much of it. If anything, there would be too little- since everyone on the planet needs a place to live, as the population grows the demand for real estate and especially rental properties grows with it. So, you’ve got something that’s not going to go anywhere, that everybody not only wants but needs. Sounds like a pretty good deal, right?

It sounds that way because it is. Real estate is a great investment, not least because it’s a real thing. Once someone’s invested in it, they can rest easy knowing that they’ve invested in something that isn’t going to disappear. Real estate is, both literally and figuratively, a “solid” investment.
