    It has its pros and cons.

    Pros of Investing in Real Estate

    1. When you invest in real estate, you invest in something tangible. You can look at it, feel it, drive by with your friends, point out the window, and say, “I own that”. For some people, that’s important psychologically.
    2. Real estate investments have traditionally been a terrific inflation hedge to protect against a loss in purchasing power of the dollar.
    3. Income potential. The best reason to invest in commercial over residential rentals is the earning potential. Commercial properties generally have an annual return off the purchase price between 6% and 12%

    Cons of Investing in Real Estate:

    1. Real estate takes a lot of hands-on work. You have to deal with the midnight phone calls about exploding sewage in a bathroom, gas leaks...
    2. Real estate can cost you money every month if the property is unoccupied. You still have to pay taxes, maintenance, utilities, insurance, and more...
    3. The actual value of real estate hardly ever increases in inflation-adjusted terms (there are exceptions, of course). This is made up for by the power of leverage.
    4. And this asset is not very liquid. You can't sell it in an hour.

    Real estate is a great investment option. It can generate an ongoing income source. It can also rise in value overtime and prove a good investment in the cash value of the home or land that you buy. You may use it as a part of your overall strategy to begin building wealth. However, you need to be sure that you are ready to begin investing in real estate. Unlike other investments, you will need to spend money to maintain and care for your property in order for it to continue to provide a source of income.

    We have a good number of clients at our accounting firm that owner residential and commercial real estate. 

    Real estate investing can be profitable. 

    A good real estate investment has to do with knowing what a potential property's fair market rental value is vs the sales price or another way to say it is the monthly cost to rent vs the monthly cost to own.  Generally those numbers are pretty close to each other so the only way to make a good real estate investment is to get a good deal on the purchase. 

    To put it another way, "Buy low sell high".

    With that said there is a ton to learn and a blog post is not going to give you what you need.  If you are just starting to look, get on the meetup webpage and look for real estate investment groups in your area and go attend some meeting and just learn everything you can.

    Real estate is generally a great investment option. It can generate ongoing passive income and can be a good long-term investment if the value increases over time. You may even use it as a part of your overall strategy to begin building wealth.

    However, you need to make sure you are ready to start investing in real estate. For one, you will need to put down a significant amount of money upfront to begin real estate investing. Buying a home, apartment complex, or piece of land can be expensive. That’s not to mention the ongoing maintenance costs you’ll be responsible for, as well as the potential for income gaps if you are between tenants for a time.

    Property investment is relatively low-risk and stable as compared to other businesses, but requires a significant amount of capital and you have to wait for the right time to sell, however not every property is a profitable one.
