Secure Your Long Term Financial Goals: Invest in Real Estate

Nov 2015 · Lyn

A home purchase is one of the savviest financial investments you can make, whether you plan to live there as a primary residence, or use it as an income property.  While any time of year is a good time to invest in real estate, fall and winter are especially great times to purchase an investment property. While inventory is lower, sellers who have their homes on the market in the colder months tend to be a bit more motivated than those who hold out for the spring market. The David Hoffman Group is known for fierce negotiation, wining bidding wars and getting the best deal possible for our clients—all of which is a crucial piece when buying for investment. Four benefits of investing in real estate:

  1. Cash Flow – As a client of The David Hoffman Group, we can help you get a great deal on an investment property, and ensure that it’s in an area that will command high rent, which will in turn provide you with positive cash flow.foreclosure in ballantyne
  2. Build Equity – Monthly mortgage payments build equity, providing you with a financial gain as the home appreciates and your loan amount goes down. Getting the seller down to their bottom line and making strategic improvements to the property can often times lead to instant equity. Your DHG agent can help you determine what kind of updates will help you maximize your investment.
  3. Passive Income – Real estate as a long-term financial investment creates passive income once the mortgage is paid off.
  4. Tax Benefits—Interest payments, mortgage insurance and expenses related to your investment property can be claimed as tax deductions.
