Before You Analyze Properties, First You Analyze Your Own Finances

When considering getting into real estate investing, the first step is to take a hard look at your personal financial situation.  This isn't just about whether you have the money or not, it's also a good conversation with an expert about what your real estate investing goals are.  Because a good investment property for one investor might not be a good fit for another.

Some investors look for immediate cash flow.  Other investors look for high appreciation rates or properties in developing locations.  There are numerous real estate investment strategies, and they all have merit.  That's why first we want to determine what your goals are as well as your risk tolerance.

What Types of Investment Strategies are There?

Typically, residential real estate investors are focusing on one of four goals (or a combination thereof) when trying to find a good investment property.  These goals are:

  • Cash-flow positive properties
  • Big equity build
  • Quick flip potential
  • Tax deductions

There are other goals an investor can have, such as finding an income-producing property they can also use sometimes for personal pleasure, but these four are the main considerations real estate investors have.

Which Strategy is Best?

There is no one 'best' focus for finding a good investment property.  For some investors, the type of property that may best produce positive cash flow will lack any substantial long-term potential for appreciation, meaning no big sale years later.  Other investors can't or don't want to afford to wait for a big payout later and need something that will immediately begin producing income.  It really depends on your financial goals.
