Real estate is diverse. It can provide investors with access to a broad range of income and growth-producing assets. Some our favorite investment strategies include:
• Raw Land
Land can be improved to add value, and it can be leased or rented to create an often overlooked cash flow. Asset Quest built it's business on Raw Land, and we are certain it is a solid addition to any investment portfolio.
Land can also be subdivided and sold for profit. Some investors choose to buy raw land with the intent that someday the land will become much more valuable due to external developments like the construction of a freeway or from a development being built nearby.
Commercial investments vary dramatically in scope, size, style, and purpose, but ultimately involve a property that is leased to a business. Some commercial investors rent buildings to small local businesses, while others rent large spaces to supermarkets or big box megastores.
Small multifamily properties (2-4 units) allow for an easy purchase. Bought properly, these provide excellent cash flow. These types of properties can be both a solid investment as well as a personal residence for the smart investor. Another perk of the small multifamily property is the ability to take advantage of "economies of scale," as only one loan is needed to secure the 2, 3, or 4 units in the property.
