What’s the Easiest Way to Invest in Real Estate?

reit

Real Estate Investment Trusts – REIT for short. Are they the best real estate investment?

A friend of mine recently asked my opinion about a REIT – Real Estate Investment Trust. You know, those sexy crowd-sourcing ventures where you pool you money with other mogul wannabes and buy retail shops, apartment buildings and office complexes and just watch the cash flow into you pockets. Sort of. Actually, the fund managers do all the work,collecting rents from the tenants and paying the investors dividends when they make a profit. Of course, you know what happens if there is not profit, right?

Let’s say you have $1000 laying around and you wanted to invest in real estate? Is the REIT the best way to go? Maybe. But before you join the REIT bandwagon, ask yourself this question?  Do you rent or own the place where you live?

Median Net Worth of Americans

On average, Americans accumulate more wealth in real estate than any other investment.

The reason I ask is that if you are renting, you are missing out on the EASIEST way to invest in real estate. Seriously. It’s a proven fact that over the long haul, folks who own their homes accumulate more wealth on average than those who rent.

Think about it…when you own your home, you are investing money you have to spend anyway! It’s easy peasy. And with the low interest rates we have right now, it’s a flat out no-brainer.

For an extra bonus, many qualify for the down payment assistance programs available so they can buy a house for very little cash. It’s just doesn’t get any easier, my friends!

Good luck moguls!
