How To Make Money In Real Estate

Most people think that it's easier to make money online than it is to make serious cash in real estate. But both are difficult if you don't know what you're doing. When you get the lay of the land and understand the path forward, you can make good money.

What You Don't Need To Generate an Income in Real Estate.

1. You don't need credit.

Even if you have poor credit, there are ways forward if you're committed enough. Several of the methods discussed in this piece don't rely on credit whatsoever. In fact, many successful real estate investors started with no credit or even poor credit.

2. You don't need huge capital.

You don't need capital to make money in real estate beyond a few hundred dollars to open escrow. Of course, this means going for lower-priced homes or distressed properties and flipping contracts. It also means finding hard-money lenders or other investors that can help you push deals through. This could even apply to home renovations as long as you're good at finding the money.

3. You don't need major assets.

There's another misconception that you need to put up major assets in order to secure a contract or purchase a piece of property. You don't need to do this, but you do need to understand how creative financing works. Most people simply stop dead in their tracks because they have this belief about what they need in order to get started.

Making Money in Real Estate.

When it comes to real estate income, there are two ways to generate cash. You can generate passive income by buying and holding, while you can generate an active income by flipping contracts, doing renovations, or adding value in another area — such as putting together property development deals.

Passive income is income you can earn that basically runs itself. While it might not happen overnight, sticking with the right property can earn you some lucrative passive income. Active income is a more traditional way to make money, meaning that you perform a task and earn an income in a specific time frame. Neither type of income is better than the other — it's all about what you prefer. Another great aspect of real estate is that you can certainly earn a living on both types of income.

It might seem overwhelming at first, but it won't be as intimidating once you gain experience and better understand the various types of real estate. Here are a few questions people ask when thinking about making money in real estate.

1. How does a real estate investment work?

Real estate investing works on the concept of cash flow, which means that your income has to exceed your outgoing expenses. This is known as a positive cash flow. This can work for both long-term residential and commercial rentals, as well as it will work for short-term vacation rentals.

2. How can I invest in real estate with no money?

You can utilize a variety of methods that includes any of the following:

Seller financing through lease options

Trading fixed assets

Taking over someone else's mortgage payments which might be in a distressed situation

Bringing in an investment partner with cash

Borrowing from a bank or getting a hard money loan

Taking out a home equity line of credit

Utilizing a peer-to-peer lending network

Real estate crowdfunding platforms.

3. What is a wholesale deal in real estate?

Wholesale is akin to flipping properties, except flippers never take ownership of the home when you flip real estate contracts. You can learn the specific strategies for doing this from REWW and other data aggregators for the wholesaling market.

4. Is it good to invest in real estate?

Absolutely. This is one of the sources (aside from being a business owner) that has generated the most wealth in human history.

5. What are the most common types of real estate investment properties?

At the beginning of their real estate career, most people like to focus on one type of real estate to invest in. Then, once they've gotten the hang of it, they'll grow their investment portfolio.

If you aren't sure which type of property is right for you, consider these common types of investment properties:

* Single-family homes

* Multi-family homes

* Apartment buildings and complexes

* Office buildings.
