Real Estate Limited Partnerships: More Thoughts on Why It’s Beneficial

It was about a month ago that I decided that I wanted to invest in a real estate limited partnership. As it turns out, last night I was reading a book on home buying and happen to jump to the back of the book where it offers a list of to-do’s when it comes to real estate investing as well as a list of things not to do.

Find out how buying a home will affect my ability to develop passive income streams.

3 Things to Consider Before Investing in Real Estate

Investing in real estate is an exciting step towards financial independence. It’s something that I am working on doing without having the hassle of day to day management. While some people go through the process of making it more passive through a real estate manager, I am going an even more passive route. I am investing in a limited partnership. For those of you who don’t have the same opportunity as I do, you may be thinking about buying your own property in order to diversify your investments. If you ask me, this is a great idea. Yet, just because I am a huge supporter of real estate investing, doesn’t mean that you can do it without considering every minor detail. In fact, there are many things that you need to consider before making the leap.

Truly Passive Real Estate Investing

A little while back I mentioned that I may be jumping into real estate investing sooner than I had anticipated. I’m 25, don’t own my own home, but I am already planning my entry into real estate. Many of my friends question my sanity, but I know that I am setting up success for my future. As I shared in my last post, real estate investing became increasingly more viable because of one thing: connections.

One Step Closer to Real Estate Investing

I have always wanted to get started in the real estate business. Okay – when I say always, I really mean for years. I have long understood it as a great long-term investment. Unfortunately for me, I live in an area where it is very difficult to make a profit anytime soon. You would need a large amount of capital to get started and this just reduces the rate of return when you keep a lot of money in the property. I think I found a way around that, allowing me to get started investing in real estate soon.

Saving Up for a Rental Property

The past 9 months or so have been a roller coaster for me. I started this journey with the belief that I might be able to quit my day job by the end of 2012. I think I will postpone quitting for a while, but only because it gives me more financial security. In fact, that is my primary concern right now. How can I prepare for quitting my day job. Ultimately this means replacing my day job with other income and then slowly turning it into passive income so that I can have more time to do what I want, but the difficult question is what to do first.

Real Estate Investing Is Back On the Table

A few weeks ago I wrote about how I was starting to see a shift in my early retirement plan, when I said that online real estate is better than physical real estate. The truth is that owning and managing websites still has a lot of advantages to owning rental properties. Yet, my approach is coming full circle to include rental properties once more. You may think that I am wishy-washy in my thinking, but that’s what this blog is all about.

Why Online Real Estate is Better

If you want passive income, one of the best choices is real estate. I have already suggested that real estate is passive investment. Buying properties to rent out provides a secure, long-term investment. If purchased for the right amount of money, you can even have a positive cash flow from the beginning. Buying real estate is in my early retirement plan for many of the same reasons stated here. However, I have started to think about how online real estate, or websites, offer investors a better option in many ways. Here’s why buying a website can be a better option than a physical property.

Is it Possible to Retire on Rental Properties?

As I mentioned in my post detailing my alternate retirement plan, I don’t look at retirement the same way that most people do. Instead of building up a lump sum, I am creating income streams.

Real Estate as Passive Investment

Often when people think of investing in real estate, there is often one bad renter’s story comes to mind. I know of several people who have taken a financial hit from bad renters. This shouldn’t discourage using real estate as an investment. In fact, real estate investing can be one of the most passive investments out there.
