Real Estate Investing – Opportunities Abound The world of real estate investing has certainly changed over the past few years. It wasn’t so long ago that everything went up and everyone made money in real estate. Well with the major drop in real estate prices coupled with a more limited financing market, this is just not the case anymore. However there are still a lot of opportunities. For examples bargains abound in the real estate market. You can purchase property for a fraction of what it cost just a few years ago. At the same time the prices for rentals remains fairly strong since many people have lost their houses and now require rentals. This does open up some great opportunities for investing. There also some wonderful deals on foreclosures and short sales. Property can be purchased for a small fraction of what they once were. Many of the properties are suitable for rental income or they can be purchased and then held for the long term. Financing rates remain at historic lows so the carrying costs for long term investments are quite reasonable. The banks and lending institutions are much more stringent when it comes to the deal. But this is for the investors benefit as well since it protects both parties. It is safe to say that real estate prices will eventually firm up and increase over time. This means that good real estate investing will not only result in strong rental income but they can generate capital gains when held for the long term. DISTRICT REIA
