Are you seeking a new source of income? If so, consider real estate investing, as there is a variety of investing to suit every financial objective and financial situation, from wholesaling, to new developments, short sales, fix and flips, rental holdings and beyond.
There are an array of benefits and perks associated with property investments, which can be a great solution for many situations, from an individual seeking to earn a sizable income, save money for college or make money for retirement.
Real estate investment can accommodate a variety of different investing strategies. Someone who is seeking to make money fast and doesn’t have a lot of capital to invest would be best suited to wholesaling, while someone who doesn’t mind tying up their capital in a property for an extended time and is seeking a lump sum profit may prefer flipping or short sales.
Others who want a reliable revenue stream over time may be best suited to rental holdings.
Quite simply, there is a real estate investment option for virtually every investor.
Property investment is a great option, as there’s virtually no risk of “losing it all” as can occur in other investment portals, such as the stock market. Insurance covers you from losses of the actual structure due to fire, flood or a natural disaster, while land never disappears so there’s an inherent value that provides tremendous security to investors.
What’s more, real estate investors can opt for long term or short term investments to suit your unique financial goals and objectives.
Property investors can also choose whether they wish to earn a large lump sum over a longer timeframe, a series of small sums spread over a long period of time, or a moderate lump sum in a relatively short timeframe.
The versatility, combined with the minimal risk, makes property investment one of the top solutions for someone who’s seeking to invest.

Wholesaling properties is preferred amongst many investors due to the lack of risk and the fact that you can get into wholesaling for little or no money down.
In real estate wholesaling, the wholesaler is a middleman between the property owner/seller and the rehabber. LEARN MORE →
At its most basic level, flipping involves purchasing investment properties with the intent of performing improvements to raise the value of the home or other property. Then, the property is re-sold for a profit.
Real estate flipping does require a fair amount of investment capital. Therefore, some property investors opt to get involved in wholesaling first, which enables you to move properties and earn a profit by serving as a middle-man of sorts. LEARN MORE →
The term “short sale” refers to the sale of a distressed property — that is, a property where the homeowners are behind on mortgage payments and facing foreclosure as a result.
A short sale involves the sale of the property for a price that’s less than what the property owner owes to the bank. LEARN MORE →
The term “new developments” typically refers to residential property developments. While you may occasionally encounter a single one-family home, most developments involve multiple properties which are generally constructed by the same builder or developer. LEARN MORE →
Rental holdings are properties that are purchased, rehabbed (if necessary) and then “held” and rented out for a profit.
This type of property serves as a profitable option for individuals who are seeking a regular income from their investment properties. Once the cost of the property is paid off, the rental fees are nearly all pure profit. Unlike wholesaling or flipping, rental holdings bring in a steady stream of income rather than a large lump sum, making this investment option ideal for retirees, for instance. LEARN MORE →
