I’m always curious why some of the richest billionaires always recommend real estate investing as a form of achieving better return potential. Dalawa lang lagi ang pinagkukumpara when it comes to the ’best investment’, either you invest in the stock market or you buy a property and let it grow through the years. The thing with stock market investing is that you can see the fluctuation of the stocks you hold if you get to see you portfolio on a daily basis. But with real estate investing, it is more of a buy and hold then earn so much through the price appreciation of the property you have or at least have it rented.
Let me tell you a story. Janica is a good friend of mine that I met when I was still an OFW in Singapore. Noong simula pa lang, lagi na niyang nababanggit sa akin that she’s been investing her income into real estate properties, despite being the breadwinner of her family. She consistently allocates her monthly dues on her real estate investments kahit hirap na hirap siyang i-manage ang kanyang finances, but she kept on doing it para ma-sustain niya ang dream niya to have real estate properties that will make money for her regularly.
Fast forward after 3 years na pagkauwi niya sa Pinas, I checked on her and nagulat ako sa binalita niya. She started turning some of her rented properties into dorm types which means that a 15sqm room can accommodate at least 2-3 dorm renters. Here’s the good part, she rented multiple properties and turned that into a 500 beds capacity. In short, if she’s earning a conservative rental rate of P3000 per head multiplied by 500 beds then that’s a clean P1.5M of monthly income. Sabihin na lang natin na half of that gross monthly income went to her operational expenses so that’s still around P750K of monthly net income or at least P9M yearly income. Ito ang kapalit ng lahat ng sakripisyo ni Janica, and that turned out to be a rewarding career for her.
As of today, Janica is not just into dorm type of business anymore, she’s also part of a group that used to own at least 2 hotels located in Metro Manila and 2 more upcoming real estate projects. We all know that real estate can be a lucrative form of passive income, but did you know that owning a multi-million pesos worth of real estate property without an initial capital can now be a possibility? Totoo yun! But the question is, who’s willing to help you to do it the right and proper way?
Here is the good news for you, ka-TGFI! We have gathered in this online course the best real estate coaches in the country today to teach you how you can be profitable in this field.
SOME MYTHS ABOUT REAL ESTATE INVESTING…
►You need to already have a lot of money. Although it’s true that you need money to play in the game of investing real estate, you don’t need millions or even hundreds of thousands of pesos to get started.
►Real Estate Investing isn’t worth it unless you buy can a large property. Many investors started with real estate investing with small, less costly properties. Bigger and more expensive properties typically come many years down the road.
►It’s quick and easy. One of the biggest attractions to real estate—and one of the biggest myths—is the lure of making fast and easy money. It is true that real estate investing can generate more money faster than just about anything else. Some jump in and see great success quickly.
►You have to be old enough. You don’t have to be a certain age to get into real estate. You can start at any age—and the earlier the better. No matter how old you are, there is a way you can get involved.
►No matter what, I’m going to lose money in the beginning. Real estate is just too risky. Yes, there’s risk to real estate. But real estate, unlike stocks or gold prices, is well within your control. You’re not blindly hoping things will go well and hoping for a good year. Yes, some things aren’t in your control. But you have active agency in your investments, where they are, and the decisions you make.
►You need to be lucky to make big money. A little bit of luck is always welcome of course, but the key to making money with real estate investing is to do your homework and find the right property in the right location
►After you own several properties, you can enjoy sitting back while the profits roll in. Wrong! Managing rental properties and doing it well takes time and resourcefulness. There are no shortcuts, especially if you want to avoid unpleasant surprises and make the most of your properties.
►You Need to Be a Licensed Real Estate Agent Prior to Becoming a Real Estate Investor. Being a real estate agent does not mean that you will become a real estate investor one day. Moreover, you do not need to be a real estate agent in order to become a housing investor. You do not need to be licensed in order to start investing in real estate.
