About Private Real Estate Investing

One of the most significant downsides of real estate investing is that your investment is not liquid.  In other words, you must commit your money for a period of years.  It’s not like the stock market where you can trade in and out quickly.  Only consider making an investment if you can leave your funds invested for several years or decades.

 

While this is a potential negative, this can also be a positive. The investment requires you to commit your money for years to come, not days. As a result, you benefit more from compounding interest.

Not always. You must have excess money you will not need for several years. If you will need the funds in 5-10 years you should not invest in private real estate. Instead, look for a more suitable short-term investment.

There are several tax benefits through real estate investing. We have a short eBook with more information which is downloadable here. Always remember to consult your tax professional for specific tax advice.
