What does the term real estate mean?

In simple terms it refers to property. It can be in the form of a vacant land, residential property, commercial or even industrial. As aforementioned it's a very large field that requires you to cover the groundwork before you even think of owning one.

1.Rental property

This has to be the most honored ways to build wealth and generate passive income. If the rent is higher than your expenses, it means that your property will generate a positive cash flow. Some of the things that contribute to the success of the business includes:

— Being patient to start small. If you don't have access to a lot of capital, don't stress yourself too much because that's how many have started their own businesses.

— Protecting your property with an affordable insurance that is going to cover maintenance costs and upgrades.

— Locations is very important. Your building must be situated at a place that has access to shops, schools and entertainment areas.

— Safety cannot be negotiated. People want to feel safe and protected at all times - this must be your top priority.

2.P2P Investments

Technology has really opened a lot of doors for entry-level investors that don't have enough capital to start their own business from the ground up. P2P platforms use the same structure of raising money that is used by crowd funding campaigns. A group of investors come together and contribute money that will be directed into real estate investments. You have total control of what you are investing in, giving you the opportunity to diversify your portfolio. Just do a quick Google search and find out if there's any platform that offer these types of investments. Below we have named our top 3 ones.
