People invest in real estate for a variety of reasons, among them is the fact that they are a ready source of income for retirement. However, there is a clear majority who do not have that much cash on hand to buy a property outright. This is when they go to their local Lender for a home loan.
Stricter lending regulations since the crash of 2008 have hindered many would-be buyers. This is where Hard Money loan programs come into play, with really 2 main qualifications:
#1. Equity or a decent down payment and
#2. An ability to repay the loan.
With land becoming more and more precious in many parts of the country, especially California, even foreigners see the advantage of owning a piece of the land in the states. As a result, more people are using real estate as a major investment tool in their wealth creation plan.
People will always need a place to live, whether temporary or long term. If they do not desire to own their own property or cannot afford to buy now, your rental property is their answer – resulting in that additional monthly income for you.
We are all aware of real estate’s ups and downs, but most agree that the real estate market is more stable than the stock market. Another advantage of real estate over stocks is the fact that a far larger percentage of the purchase price can be financed than with stocks or other investments.
Rental properties provide great cash flow and will always be around, where as your stocks may not. How many stocks seemed like a great investment, but plunged into oblivion before your very eyes? What about the future cash flow of your investment? Rental income can be forecasted more accurately than other investments. You can easily discover the market rent, the neighborhood vacancy rate, the property management costs, property taxes and insurance.
Unlike the stock market, you have more control over your financial investment. Appreciation may or may not happen sometime in the future, but rental property will produce more income over time, not less. Rents go up and your mortgage payment holds steady and eventually disappears.
