2 Ways to Earn on Property Investment
Investing on property can prove to be profitable. However, you should not do it if your pockets are not that deep. Compared to other investments, real estate property is not that liquid. Meaning, you cannot sell it right away even when you want to. It takes time to find buyers and it also takes time to process the papers. Nevertheless, many do it because of the profits they make. Some would buy undervalued property so they can sell for a higher price. They hold it only for a short period of time. But then, such a scheme does not work all the time. Many times, you might not be able to find a buyer right away. When this happens you would have to shoulder the maintenance costs longer than you have intended. Others intend to hold on to the property much longer. Instead of selling, they rent out the property. This way, mortgage payments and maintenance cost are covered. And so you don't actually put out cash yourself because the property is self sufficient. The problem occurs when you don't have a tenant because you will have to pay the mortgage and the maintenance yourself. You earn well when you have a regular tenant though. You can then sell the property at a later date. If the value has appreciated greatly then you earn a bigger amount.
