Firstly, it is important to make the difference between buying a property as a home and investing in real estate. The latter has become more and more popular over recent decades and has become a common investment vehicle.
In reality it is easier to invest in stocks and bonds than it is purchasing and owning real estate, although this asset class has plenty of opportunities for making large capital gains. It’s a complicated and tricky process and therefore letting a professional deal with it is essential.
Real estate investment can be compared to investing in small mutual funds for rental properties. In fact, this may be the best solution If you want to earn income from a rental property without the hassle of being a landlord.
How does this work? Basically a company will buy or build a set of apartment, condos, commercial real estate or offices. Then will allow investors to buy them through the company just like buying a unit in a fund. The Real estate company manages all the units, taking care of maintenance, advertising vacant units, interviewing tenants and in exchange earns a percentage of the monthly rent.
