So, you have a nest egg that you’d like to put to good use. Or, maybe you’d like to see greater returns on your savings than banks can provide. In any case, investing in residential or commercial real estate is a stable and profitable option. However, if you’re a beginner, you’ve probably got a lot of questions.
First, let’s look at how real estate can benefit you. While you may not be ready to dump your life savings into real estate, there are a number of reasons to invest in real estate as soon as possible:
If you currently own property and are looking to sell, now is a great time to do so. That said, it’s also a good time to acquire a new property, as property values continue to rise. According to research from Attom Data Solutions and Clear Capital, median house prices increased by an average of 5.95% nationwide in 2019.
Let’s assume you purchase a home for $250,000. Based on nationwide averages, you can expect your investment to appreciate like this:
Assuming your property aligns with nationwide averages, your $250,000 investment could be worth $1,400,000 or more in 30 years’ time. Even if your property value underperforms, appreciating at half the average rate (2.975% per year), you could expect to double your initial investment over the same period. This is all assuming that you only sit on your real estate until you’re ready to sell.
If you choose to rent out your property or use it to start a business, you stand to make significantly more off of your investment. While it’s hard to predict the profits you would make from a business, it’s a little easier to calculate your returns from rental income. On average, landlords charge about 1% of a home’s value in monthly rent. Thus, if you choose to rent your $250,000 home, you can expect around $2,500 per month in real estate income.
