    Real estate can be a good investment that returns both cash flow and capital appreciation. Improving the quality of the rental property itself, either through direct renovations or added amenities, gives renters added incentive to choose your rental property over others.

    Thanks for sharing with us this information. Property can always become one of the sources of your passive income. Due to the inflation the market prices are rising every year and many people find it as a good chance for investing. Later, with years they can sell this property but for the price that is twice bigger. People should center attention on income rather than capital growth. The more money you can actually earn monthly, the better your chances will be of buying somewhere else. It is very important to understand the connection between a good location and a high quality of tenant. Location plays a significant role in property investment. The area should be nice, not far from the supermarkets, shops or if it is possible the city center.

    In my opinion, investing in real estate is a great way to obtain cash flow and/or capital gains. Cash flow, the most obvious, is the income that is generated from the rental income after your expense have been paid. Investing in real estate is money going into your pocket every month -- like an extra pay check -- and this can increase over time as rent goes up with the market. Capital gains or appreciation is the increase in the value of the property after time. If you’re looking into real estate investments, you likely want to earn wealth on real estate based on risk you are taking, while minimizing the amount of time you need to spend attending to the property. In order to accomplish this, you need to make some smart choices upfront when buying investment property.real estate investment is simply the purchase of a future income stream from property and quite undeserving of the tarnish to its reputation.

    Thanks for sharing your tips. Buy to let property is a popular long term investment. Property investment is simpler to understand than stocks and shares.

    Some basic tips you must follow in property investment:

    1. Know your property options: You must know about all details and range of property of area in which you want to invest. Are you interested in restoring a run-down property and flipping it for quick cash? Or renting out a family home to a steadily employed couple? Or perhaps you are interested in commercial properties like a small apartment building?

    2. Seek wise counsel: A funny thing about humans is how often we try to accomplish things by ourselves. So many times, we could have avoided that horrible vacation deal to Hawaii simply by visiting the travel agent down the street. Just like travel agents or tax accountants, there are plenty of qualified experts waiting to advise you while you search out a promising investment property.

    3.Location: The most important element in real estate valuation will always be location. Not only is this true in ALL real estate, but ESPECIALLY for investors looking to rent out the properties they purchase. Why? Because you need to make sure there are people in that market looking to rent.

    4. Line up your capital: Speaking to a potential lender or getting input from a financial advisor is highly recommended before you get to far down the path of exploring your investment options. While the beauty of real estate investing is that you can borrow the financing and have your tenants pay for the monthly mortgage costs, you still must be prepared for unpredictable vacancies of the property, which means maintaining a healthy cash balance for that as well as potential repairs and maintenance of the property.

    5. Gather your team: Brave or otherwise less-financed real estate investors often become landlords overnight, as soon as they manage to rent out their newly acquired rental property. Don’t get caught by surprise! Know the tenant laws of your state and locality to better protect yourself and your property, while providing good customer service to your tenants.

    When a company entity holds your investments, it ensures that the shareholders will have limited liability. This means the shareholders (that’s you) are only liable in terms of the amount they’ve invested. The shareholders are protected against everything else, and taxes will be less when the investment begins to gain momentum.

    Here are five tips to keep in mind when it comes time to structure your portfolio as a business.When should you move your property portfolio into a business structure?
    Structuring your Investment Portfolio at a Business
    1. Do Your Research

    Like any business enterprise, your success is going to be based on the body of knowledge you have on this subject. In terms of property investment, make sure your information comes from reliable sources, not the general media.

    As an investor, you need to have a wide-ranging view of the market that can only be gleaned by consulting with experts in the field. Seek out independent advice. Don’t rely on the information you read in the papers or hear on TV.

    Be proactive and seek out the knowledge of the experts in your particular property area of investment.
    2. Focus on Returns

    As a business owner, all your decisions must be rational, not emotional. You will conduct research so as to find the growing markets and emerging areas for property investment. You want to make the best decision that will provide you with the best return on your investment.

    This may mean that investing in a property in a suburb is a better decision than buying in downtown Sydney or Brisbane, even though the latter may seem better emotionally, or perhaps more desirable.

    Again, do your research, and focus on where you will get the greatest return on your investment. Remember, you’re not living in the property, so it should be a purely return-focus decision.
    3. It’s All Connected

    Your decisions must take into account the entire scope of the strategy of your business and portfolio. You need to consider such things as taxation and financing of the property. How is this investment going to affect the rest of your portfolio?
    4. Know Your Finances

    When it comes to pulling the trigger on a potential investment, or adding to your portfolio, you need to ask yourself: Is my financial portfolio flexible enough to handle this not just now, but five years down the line?

    Know what types of credit you have available to you. Research the difference between various mortgages and lines of credit. Be master of your financial kingdom and assets.
    5. Go with a Specialist

    In setting up your business, employ the services of a property specialist. They will be best able to help you strategise for the long term.

    Just as you would hire an accountant to do your taxes, hire a property specialist to help you strategise and build your business as a property investor.

    Take these five tips to heart. Implement them, and you’ll find you’ll be on a far better path to developing your investment portfolio.

    Location is the key when buying a property because it varies as the market changes.

    It seems to me that the first tip should sound like “Ask yourself what you want to get investing in real estate?”. Many people, who have some savings and want to invest them, don't understand what they want to achieve at the end. So if you expect to get 5-7% yield, you should be interested in short-term rental. That means you'd better choose a place which is popular with tourists and close to transport hubs. There are numerous factors, which will determine the efficiency of your investment. I found an article on the topic on Tranio website, there you can read information on what type of property your budget can buy and what risks you can face investing in different types of real estate
