Diversify your investments with real estate

sell

Real estate is recognized as one of the most stable investment options available today. In fact, residential real estate has proven to be a less volatile long-term investment than equities. Financial planning is not a one-size-fits-all option, so how can you be sure real estate investing is right for you?

If you are interested in diversifying your portfolio with real estate, you should first discuss your options with an experienced real estate professional. You will get help with (1) determining the properties that suit your investment needs, (2) tracking down the critical data necessary to make informed decisions, and (3) keeping you up to date on changing trends in the residential market.

As with any investment, there are pros and cons to real estate. Property ownership isn’t as simple as an investment in stocks and bonds. You may not make significant profits right away, and it’s far from liquid. However, the upside is a long-term growth yield that frequently exceeds traditional stock market investments.

If you decide to invest in real estate, be sure to acquire a variety of property types, as well as properties in different markets. In addition to single-family homes or duplexes, consider commercial properties and apartments to keep your portfolio stable and limit the risks associated with the inevitable market shifts. That way, as the housing market ebbs and flows, you’ll still hold a valuable stake in all types of real estate investments. A well-rounded real estate portfolio will give you a better chance at stable, long-term growth.

Ultimately, working with a trusted real estate professional and experienced financial adviser is key to successfully discerning your options and choosing the best investments for your future.

How to spot the next hot neighborhood

next hot neighborhood

Location, location, location
Location is one of the most important elements – if not the most important element – to consider in a home search. While it’s easy to find markets that are already buzzing, how can you spot up-and-coming neighborhoods?

Uptick in businesses
Take note when chic hotels, stylish boutiques and trendy restaurants begin to emerge in the surrounding areas. If a neighborhood is creating a higher demand for new venues, then its property values are likely to soar.

Fixer-upper potential
Neighborhoods that may be considered past their prime but offer unique architecture and structural integrity are prime real estate opportunities. Victorian, Tudor and Spanish-style older homes are popular, especially among millennials and first-time home buyers who are willing to invest in a home that requires a little extra love, attention and elbow grease.

Fast-selling properties
As homes begin to spend less and less time on the market, it’s a good sign that the neighborhood is increasing in popularity. Sometimes, it only takes a few buyers taking an interest in a neighborhood before other buyers take note and begin to see its potential for future growth.

Testimonial from a happy client!

“Rachel recently guided us through the process of buying our first home, and her expertise, commitment, and tenacity were invaluable from start to finish. We came into this process with a lot of questions and very little knowledge of what to expect along the way; from our first meeting with Rachel, she provided us with a lot of clarity and communicated to us what each step of our home search and purchase would look like. With each house that we looked at, Rachel helped us not only define our priorities more clearly but also identify areas where we were willing to be more flexible. She was able to do this without ever being pushy or pressuring us into making decisions; she intuitively knows how to advise and guide while respecting buyers’ opinions and feelings.
Throughout our home purchasing experience, I have always felt confident in Rachel’s abilities and trusted her feedback. In addition to being first time homebuyers, we were looking for home with a budget that was at a competitive price point at a time when the housing market was not very favorable to buyers. Before purchasing what is now our home, we began the process of purchasing another house, which we had to back out of at the inspection stage. This was incredibly stressful and disappointing, but Rachel provided us with sound advice along with kind encouragement as we restarted the search process.
After this, Rachel helped us navigate the complexities of purchasing a foreclosure, which wasno small feat. She advocated for us to ensure that we were getting a fair deal and to get repairs done in the house before we moved in, and she communicated with us daily to make sure we were informed of every development. Without her, I truly don’t know how we would have made it to the home buying finish line.
Beyond her extensive knowledge and formidable skills, Rachel is generous, funny, and kind. Her positive spirit and determined attitude make her a pleasure to work with, and I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
