Should I buy an investment property….? 🤔

Many people are interested in real estate investing, but only a few actually go for it.

With all of the potential benefits, why would someone hesitate? 🤔��Investing in real estate can be intimidating or even frightening, if you get caught up in thinking about everything that could go wrong.

Sure, there’s no need to rush, but if you’ve done the due diligence and consulted with a real estate expert you trust (like me!), investing in real estate may be the best thing for your future.

❗Don’t wait to buy real estate…your future self will thank you❗

Generally, going with neutral colors like shades of white, beige, taupe, and grays lead to a faster sale.

Purchasing real estate with a mortgage is often the most extensive personal investment most people make. How much you can afford to borrow depends on several factors, not just what a bank is willing to lend you.

The general rule is that you can afford a mortgage that is 2x to 2.5x your gross income.

Total monthly mortgage payments are typically made up of four components: principal, interest, taxes, and insurance (collectively known as PITI).

Your front-end ratio is the percentage of your annual gross income that goes toward paying your mortgage, and in general, it should not exceed 28%.

Your back-end ratio is the percentage of your annual gross income that goes toward paying your debts, and in general, it should not exceed 43.

Once you decide you want to buy a house, you will need to start thinking about how you’re going to save for a down payment and be eligible for a mortgage.

Mark Twain said it best. 👍

Land is a good investment for people who have a limited budget and wish to buy now and build later when they have more money. Purchasing land provides the owner with certainty that they will not be priced out of the property market in the future.

Who’s interested in purchasing land? After all, word on the street is that they’re not making it anymore…😉

When it comes to buying a house, there’s a lot to consider – the area, the number of bedrooms, etc. With new construction, not only do you get to move into a property that is brand new, with no work to do, most come with a warranty to cover any defects or issues within a certain period of time too.

Buyers can also often select fixtures and fittings to tailor the property interior to their taste, and if the property is built to the correct standard, homeowners should be able to enjoy lower running costs and energy bills. 💵

🚨 However, there are also a number of common pitfalls new build buyers are at risk of falling into unknowingly; here are a few to watch out for. 🚨

🍟 This is an interesting real estate fact! 🍔

In most business circles, McDonald’s is considered more a real estate company than a fast food business. The company retains ownership of the land each location sits on and charges its franchise owners rent along with the standard royalties and franchise fees each month. It’s a business model developed by Ray Kroc, the franchise founder, that has helped keep them at the top of the food chain for decades.

You don’t have to pretend the holidays don’t exist if your home is on the market this time of year.

However, if you do plan to decorate your home, home-staging experts suggest doing so conservatively and with the following tips in mind:

– Keep it secular to avoid putting off potential homebuyers of different religions
– Stick to neutral colors and decorations that complement your current décor
– Keep it simple – decorations could give your home a cluttered appearance, and pose as safety or tripping hazards
– Avoid decorations that block or hide important features of your home
– Don’t leave any gifts under your Christmas tree during showings for security reasons
