[Part 1 of 4]
Any mistake in the four stages of real estate investing can turn your investment dreams into a nightmare. We will discuss each of these areas in detail in a four-part blog post series.
The four broad stages of Real Estate Investing:
- Raising Real Estate Capital
- Making Real Estate Acquisitions
- Real Estate Operations
- Real Estate Liquidation
After taxes and other expenses, most doctors find it challenging to save more than $50,000 a year. If you are doing better than this, congratulations, you are ahead of the game.
Because most lending these days requires 25% or more down for investment property, most health care workers feel limited to Residential Property investments. These properties are either single-family homes, duplexes, triplexes, or quads.
While one can make money in the right circumstances with these types of investments, many roadblocks to prosperity exist.
- The inability to access non-recourse lending
- Lack of economies of scale
- Lack of access to the best property managers
- The effects of the residential market cycle
- The effects of the comparison appraisal model on the value of your investment
Raising Capital: A combined effort
What many physicians and other health care workers may not realize is that they can combine their money with others and purchase larger commercial properties as a fractional owner.
This type of real estate investing can largely remove many of the problems listed above, allowing for larger more consistent returns.
