Everyone seems to be pursuing real estate investing because it is considered one of the safest high return investments. There are various schools of thought about real estate investing. Let’s explore two of the most common schools of real estate.
One school of real estate talks about doing a lot of analysis. This school of real estate advocates studying many factors that are generally related to economic indicators. This school of real estate evaluates economic indicators in many different ways. It takes clues from some financial indices and how they will behave in the near future. This school of real estate evaluates various socio-economic indicators at the global, national and local levels. This school of real estate evaluates inflation and such things as the value of money today and the value of money next year. It uses all these assessments to predict how the real estate industry will develop in the coming years. Thus, this school of real estate tries to determine the purchasing power of people in order to determine the direction of real estate prices. When it comes to evaluating real estate trends in a particular place (i.e., local), this school of real estate takes into account various local factors such as unemployment rates, industrial development in the area, changes in tax policies, and any events that may affect real estate prices in the area. It also takes into account the surrounding areas and the real estate trends in those areas. So, this real estate school of thought is really followed by arch real estate advisors/investors who know a lot about finance and use all that knowledge to determine trends in the real estate industry. However, this is only one school of real estate thought.
Another school of real estate does not consider these factors at all. According to this school of real estate, real estate is profitable at all times and in all places. This school of real estate advocates finding great deals. It is this school of real estate that requires you to go to public auctions, look for distressed sales and foreclosures, look for motivated sellers, rehab and sell, and so on. So, this school of real estate focuses on getting information on the best deals in town and using them to make good profits.
So, these are two schools of thought in real estate and following either or both takes time and effort (if you want to make any profit from your real estate investments).
