Friday, 05 November 2021 05:00 AM

BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / November 5, 2021 / First-time home buyers are usually looking for a place to stay and a family to raise. First-time real estate investors are looking for a property that will make passive income.

Buying an investment property to earn rental income can be risky. While real estate investing may seem like a smart financial move, it's easy to make mistakes that will cost you along the way.

Here are 3 key factors you need to know before delving into the world of real estate investing:

Understand how banks process your loans

When people start off in real estate investing, they tend to focus more on how much money they can make. But, it's more important to understand the loan process and what type of information the bank will ask of you. Typically, you'll have to provide pay stubs, tax returns, bank statements and more.

If you understand how banks calculate your debt-to-income (DTI) ratio - which is your total income minus your total expenses, you will then have a better understanding of how much of a loan a bank will approve you for. This helps narrow down which areas you can look in that have homes of said value.

Knowing this process will prepare you to put your best foot forward as you start your journey in the real estate investing industry.

Understand cash flow

Cashflow is how much money you will generate from the property after all expenses have been paid. Too often, people jump into real estate investing without properly calculating how much positive cash flow (profit) they will generate.

Property expenses (i.e, water bills, electricity, property management, etc) and repairs are frequently forgotten when new real estate investors calculate cash flow. To be a successful real estate investor, you need to know all the variables to properly calculate the profit you will make from your rental property.

Understand the importance of location

As a newcomer to real estate investing, it's crucial to be tuned into the area you're doing business in. For example, looking at the percentage of renters versus homeowners could indicate whether the property will have a high or low vacancy rate . If 70% of the area is comprised of homeowners and 30% renters, this is a red flag.

As a new real estate investor, you always want to do business in areas where the renting population is the majority.
