Hints & tips

Real estate is a broad industry with three main categories; residential, commercial, and industrial. There are different types of real estate businesses that fall under transactional (i.e., brokerage, title, and underwriting) and operational, (i.e., property, loan, and asset management). Generally, there are different ways investors make a profit through real estate by being landlords, trading, investment groups, and/or investment trusts. Unlike other investments such as stock, there is profit in real estate regardless of whether the business volume is high or low. Real estate involves a tangible asset that usually appreciates as time goes. Also, real estate offers numerous benefits such as stable income, capital appreciation, portfolio diversification, and can be acquired using leverage.
