Reasons Why Real Estate Is a Great Investment
Over the last 50 years, home prices in the U.S. have increased by more than 5% annually on average, according to the National Association of Realtors. This means that the $200,000 home you buy today could be worth more $864,000 in 30 years when your mortgage is paid off.
It’s no surprise that real estate is considered such an effective way to build wealth.
But few actually take full advantage of the opportunity at hand. Based on the National Association of Realtors report, the average homeowner only sells their house every 10 years, though they are allowed tax-free capital gains every two years. Instead of expanding their real estate holdings and experiencing that 5% growth, they settle for the standard single-home approach, thinking much more is too complex and time-consuming. But making your first million in real estate is possible as a real estate entrepreneur and simpler than you think, provided you follow the proven roadmap laid down by countless real estate investors before you.
It’s all about expanding your real estate portfolio. The larger it is, the more that 5% growth will be worth. To do this, start by buying smart, living within your means, making the right upgrades, generating income and then rolling those profits into additional properties.
The best part is this can all be done as a side hustle while continuing your career. In fact, this is exactly how I started, while going to college, nearly 20 years ago. By my estimation, it takes about six years to go through the complete process, but if that entrepreneurial spirit is put to work, here’s what the path to a million looks like.
Get your start in real estate with a fixer-upper
For new real estate investors, nothing is as impactful as your first house. When you buy a fixer upper as your own home, work on it yourself and then sell it or rent it out after two years, you’re able to add real value to the property, and it doesn’t cost you much more than your normal mortgage payment.
You’re going to take out a loan for this purchase, and you’ll want to find something that’s available at a below market price and it is something you can put some sweat equity into. That can include everything from new landscaping to interior improvements, to a new roof or siding. Modern features are in demand, too, like a new HVAC system as well as energy-efficient upgrades to make the property more livable for the next owner.
Move on to the next one
After two years or so, you sell it and collect the proceeds from your investment and hard work. Maybe you bought the house for $200,000, made some simple improvements to the property, and were able to sell it for $300,000. That’s $100,000 in capital gains that you’re able to pocket tax-free. The next step in the process is to take that $100,000 and split it — $50,000 toward the down payment on another house, which you’ll live in, fix up and sell, and $50,000 to buy a rental property.
Do it all over again
Once again, you’re fixing up the house you’re living in but, by this point, you have a rental property that’s providing you with additional income. And after two years or so, once you’re done fixing up your second home, you sell it and do it all over again, buying more rental units. You move into one and fix it up and over the next two years can now start borrowing against the equity in the previous rentals to buy more.
From that point on, you’re using the equity you’ve built up in your properties to fund your purchases, which you’re fixing up and adding to your rental portfolio, increasing your income every step of the way. Best of all, the value of your real estate portfolio is now larger and growing, so you’re building your overall wealth as you go through this process. If you keep going along on this path, by the end of six years you should have lived in three different homes that you’ve fixed up and sold, have a portfolio of 10 rentals and have a net worth of close to a million dollars between the net asset value of your properties and the cash coming in from the sale of your homes, not to mention the monthly cash flow.
A tax-advantaged way to grow wealth
The beauty of this approach is that you’re building up larger and larger value in each home that you buy along the way. But, rather than having only a single home you now have many rentals growing in value, which you’re able to use the equity or sale proceeds from each one to buy more.
The first tax benefit of this strategy is the primary-residence exemption. It allows as much as $500,000 of capital gains every two years, but you have to live in the house for the two years. Selling every two years and turning that tax-free gain into more real-estate allows you to use that actual cash gain to invest in new properties.
The recent tax changes mean that there’s a limit on what you can claim for your primary mortgage and property taxes, but those limits don’t apply on rental properties. This means most of your loans should be on your rental properties, not your primary residence. After a few years of following this formula, that should be a very achievable goal, enabling you to buy your own home entirely with cash.
Honestly, the most difficult part of this process is admitting to yourself that, for the next six years, you’re not going to try to keep up with the Joneses when it comes to your primary residence. Instead, you’ll be buying in “rental” neighborhoods, living in older properties and doing it all entirely within your means.
But at the end of the process, you’ll be a legitimate real estate entrepreneur with a portfolio of income-producing assets that will support you and your family for years to come.
Real estate is a great investment for many reasons. You can enjoy an excellent rate of returns, amazing tax advantages and leverage real estate to build your wealth. Here are the top five reasons why real estate is a great investment.
Real estate provides better returns than the stock market without as much volatility.
Historically in real estate, your risk of loss is minimized by the length of time you hold on to your property. When the market improves, so does the value of your home, and as a result, you build equity. The risk never changes in the stock market and there are numerous factors beyond your control that can negatively impact your investment. Real estate gives you more control of your investment because your property is a tangible asset that you can leverage to capitalize on numerous revenue streams, while enjoying capital appreciation.
Real estate has a high tangible asset value.
There will always be value in your land, and value in your home. Other investments can leave you with little to no tangible asset value such as a stock which can dip to zero, or a new car which decreases in value over time. Home owners insurance will protect your investment in real estate, so be sure to get the best policy available so your asset is protected in the worst-case scenario.
Real estate values will always increase over time.
History continues to prove that the longer you hold onto your real estate, the more money you will make. The housing market has always recovered from past bubbles that caused home appreciation to slip, and for those who held on to their investments during those uncertain times, prices have returned to normal, and appreciation is back on track. Now, real estate investors in the top performing markets are enjoying a windfall. In fact, this past year, every state in the nation had a positive appreciation, and some of my clients in the Tampa Bay market have made hundred thousands of dollars in less than a year from flipping.
An investment in real estate can also diversify your portfolio.
If you’ve ever spoken to a financial planner about investing, then you are very aware of the importance of diversification. When you diversify your portfolio, you spread out the risk. Real estate will always serve as a safe tangible asset to mitigate the risk in your portfolio. Many have amassed wealth by solely investing in real estate.
Last but not least, real estate investing comes with numerous tax benefits.
You can get tax deductions on mortgage interest, cash flow from investment properties, operating expenses and costs, property taxes, insurance and depreciation (even if the property gains value) and other benefits. The end of the year is a very busy time for real estate because people want to take advantage of the numerous tax benefits before the end of the year!
An investment in real estate is not only a safe financial investment, it is also an investment that can provide years of fun, happiness and priceless memories that will last a lifetime.
