System - Monday, November 12, 2018

We searched the internet for questions about real estate investment and here are some frequently asked questions we found. 

Q: About how long will it take for me to see a guaranteed return on my investment?
A: Depending on the market, what type of property you buy, how much you purchase the property for, and local rental rates,  you are looking at about ten years before you start to generate large returns on your property.

Q: Can I invest in a property if I live abroad?
A: Real estate is a great investment, regardless of where you live. If you plan on renting out your investment property, make sure you hire a local property management company, like Five Seasons, to oversee your investment. Also, be sure that you meet all of the US’s requirements.

Q: How do I determine if a property listed online is going to be a good investment?
A: Make sure to look at the cap rate. Higher cap rates yield higher returns. Don’t forget to use the 1% rule to calculate the return on investment based on rental rates.
