Real Estate “Property Fund” Investing
You want to build a real estate portfolio, but you don’t want to deal with the hassles of managing an actual property. I’ve got two words for you – property funds. No, no property funding. This is not about being the bank. Investing in a property fund, like any other fund, requires research and know how.
HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL? RESEARCH.
Other than beefing up your portfolio, what’s in it for you? How about minimum entry costs, for starters? Property investment funds can cost as little as $2500, which, when you consider the long-term benefits, most investors would consider “pocket change”. But before you fork over your 2.5 G’s, you gotta do some research. Yeah, I said it. Research. Quit whining like a girl, and listen up. Put your Sherlock Holmes hat on, and start investigating property fund management, their longevity, and their holdings. Remember, real estate funds should have minimum turnover rates and low fees. Pay attention to how the fund has performed over time. If rates and fees are high and performance is sub-par, run like Forrest Gump and don’t look back.
