4 Tips for Investing in the Right Property
Are you looking for opportunities to invest in real estate? An increasing number of people (in different age groups) are looking for opportunities to invest in properties of different types – from long term real estate investment for those seeking rental incomes. If you are one amongst them, here are some valuable steps that you should not skip.
1. Look for the Best Areas
I have often seen that this new lineup of investors will restrict themselves in areas which are closer to their homes. It may be a good decision from the point of view of convenience, but those may not be the most rewarding (or even sufficiently rewarding) properties.
When it comes to rental properties, new investors are of the view that they should be available to their tenants whenever there is a need. But it will be more economical and smart to choose your investment property in a rewarding market. If your property is well built and well maintained on an occasional basis, it doesn’t have to be located near.
2. Refer Multiple Sources
One of the mistakes that new buyers often make is just choosing one source for buying property. I have come across many people who would look for agents and sources from within their networks.
While it is more reasonable to refer to multiple sources for buying the right property, technology has made things much easier and fruitful for everyone. There are real estate listing sites and auction sites that help you find both real estate brokers and property listing in major cities of India. Besides, Internet technology enables access to sellers across wider markets across all the hot real estate hubs in the country. Thus, new age technology is changing the underlying dynamics of how the market used to work, helping buyers/investors reach beyond their immediate regions.
3. Compare Prices & Rents
As a smart real estate buyer/investor, it is important to compare prices and rents in different markets and even in different suburbs within the same market. This is important if you want to determine how your investment is going to repay you. Modern Internet technology is a major factor today that helps you in getting most of this information without leaving your home.
The goal behind finding the prices and rents is to ensure that you will get the desired ROI over your investment. New investors and buyers are more likely to fall for a market (and suburb) based just on the looks. Be smart and do a market research for prices and rents before choosing that market.
Once you have a budget and the kind and size of property you want to purchase, look for similar properties in different markets. This also includes looking at the rents in the different markets and in different suburbs too. This information will help you find the right properties and also determine the amount of rent you will be charged.
4. Don’t Ignore the Tax Laws
If you want to go about investing in real estate, it is extremely important to remain updated with the latest laws. The laws, especially those related to taxes, are stricter than ever. You should know about the local laws, the state-level laws and the central government laws and taxes.
Remember, there will also be differences in the way taxes get calculated. This will depend on the type of property you intend to buy. If you are investing in a rental property, it will also be required to find out what laws and taxes apply to you. In such a case, you will have to seek the help of your tax consultant.
So if you want to invest in any kind of property, it is recommended to keep these points in mind and follow them.
