Like any investment, there are pros and cons to investing in real estate, in addition to the potential for significant profits. As a result, due diligence is very important, whether you do everything yourself or use industry experts to help.
Here are some defect an average man mostly face:
When purchasing shares of a stock, the transaction cost for the trade is very low, often just a few dollars. But when purchasing real estate, the transaction costs are considerably higher.
Unlike other types of investments, real estate transaction costs can significantly affect the value of the investment and make it more difficult to turn a profit.
Many investments are highly liquid, and can be bought and sold for a profit in a fraction of a second, as with high-frequency stock trading. But real estate investments are comparably illiquid, because properties can’t be quickly and easily sold without a substantial loss in value.
Real estate investors must be prepared to own a property for months and years, especially if it will be leased out.
Once an investor purchases a property, it must be rehabbed, maintained, and managed. Financing payments, real estate taxes, insurance, management fees, and maintenance costs can add up quickly, especially if the property sits empty for extended periods of time.
As we’ve already discussed above, the market’s inefficiencies can be advantageous to investors. But here we want to also mention the disadvantages, which can be illustrated by investors purchasing properties sight unseen at auction.
The most aggressive investors purchase real estate based on minimal information, and don’t know whether they’ve made a good deal until paying for the property and then inspecting the property. Likewise, investors with rental property deal with fluctuating demographics and volatile economies, which can either add or take away from their bottom-line profits.
Real estate investing involves dealing with market inefficiencies, which can be mishandled to result in financial ruin.
Real estate investing involves taking on a great deal of financial and legal liability.
All the disadvantages mentioned above add to the liability a real estate investor takes on when purchasing, financing, rehabbing, leasing, managing, and maintaining a property. Even though investment properties may be in a corporation, there are often personal guarantees associated with the business, and the risk of losing the income and profits generated by the company.
