Of course there are many types of real estate investment or commercial properties within the Windsor / Essex County region, each with its own Pros and Cons. Many investors initially start with their own home, they renovate it to maximize value, refinance to pull maximum equity, rent it as a single family home then purchase another home. Eventually they may move up to duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes, etc up to apartment buildings.
One of the best things about Apartment Buildings is that they are STABLE and low on the risk spectrum. Once you understand operating statements, key ratios and cash flow analysis you will understand that apartment buildings can produce a steady cash flow. The more apartment units your complex has, the more steady your cash flow will be. If managed properly, and renovated to achieve maximum rents, they can generate substantial positive monthly cash flow and high returns upon resale. Operating them can be as simple as collecting rent and paying monthly bills.
From a financial point of view, the most important thing to remember about investment properties regardless of the investment type, is developing a clear understanding of operating statements, key ratios and cash flow analysis, your real estate agent professional can assist you in understanding these principles.
With every investment rental property venture being different, incorporating these FIVE STEPS into your purchase strategy before you purchase, will help you avoid costly mistakes.
