Zubair Ghias knows that one of the most important things for anyone looking at investing in real estate is doing their research. Research is an essential tool to becoming a successful real estate investor. Some of the research should focus on the prices of comparable properties and what the price history is of those properties. It is also extremely important to decide whether you will be operating the property you are purchasing as a rental unit. If you are you will want to research the rental rates in the area, market vacancy rates in the area, and standard lease terms. It is also important for you to research and know what the estimates for tax, maintenance, utility and mortgage market information.
Zubair Ghias also knows that it is important you do not “fall in love” with the property. Doing so can hinder judgment and risk your investment. Instead of falling in love with the property, know what the risk adjusted return is and have an exit strategy as well as a back up exit strategy in place before your purchase.
