So you want to invest in real estate but you don’t want to own any physical properties. Maybe you don’t want to deal with midnight phone calls from angry tenants. Or maybe you just don’t want your name to be tied to any properties. Whatever your reason is… In this article, I’m gonna be sharing with you 4 different ways to get in on the real estate boom without buying a house or becoming a landlord.
1. Investing in REITs
REITs are companies that own, operate, or finance income-producing properties and real estate ventures. Like mutual funds or exchange-traded funds (ETFs), they own not just one, but a basket of assets. Investors purchase shares of a REIT and earn a proportionate share of the income produced by those assets.
But keep in mind that when you invest in REITs you don’t have true ownership in the property, you don’t get the tax benefits, you don’t get paid every month. And if there’s a refinance, you don’t get to stay in the deal.
You might have heard the term “crowdfunded real estate” but not really understood it.
Here’s one way to think of it:
Let’s say a group of real estate developers decided to build an apartment building. They have a couple of options: They can either secure financing through a lender like a bank, or they can turn to a group of individual investors.
If they choose the individual investor option, that’s where you would come into the picture. With real estate crowdfunding, a large group of people invests in a specific project.
Real estate wholesaling is how an individual, the ‘wholesaler,’ acquires a contract from the seller of the property and assigns that same contract to an end buyer.
Wholesaling is considered one of the best short-term investment strategies and is a great way for individuals to break into the real estate investing industry. This is because wholesaling does not require significant capital to get started. Wholesaling can also help beginners learn quickly about the real estate market and gain invaluable negotiation skills.
Real estate syndication (or property syndication) is a partnership between several investors. They combine their skills, resources, and capital to purchase and manage a property they otherwise couldn’t afford.
