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

Investment Problems

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.
