Articles For Aspiring & Active Real Estate Investors
Owning rental property as a real estate investing strategy is one of the best ways to build long-term income and wealth. Of course, like all things in life, rental real estate income is taxable, but most tax laws in the United States favor rental property owners with tax breaks and other advantages for those who rent their properties.
Before purchasing an investment property for rental income, you need to know how to calculate ROI on rental property. ROI stands for return-on-investment and should be the primary factor in deciding whether you purchase a property for rental income or not.
Calculating the ROI on a potential rental property is by dividing the net profit by the total investment.
Next, take that number and multiply it by 100.
The higher the number, the better the ROI, meaning the more income you’ll make over time.

Over the years, the population in Massachusetts has increased tremendously.
Since 2010, the population has grown by roughly 7.4% to just over 7 million unique citizens. And inevitably, with a massive population surge comes a massive desire for housing and overall living needs.
However, there’s a catch.
Although the population has grown by 7.4%, the housing units have only grown by 6.8%. And, basic economic principles state that when demand outpaces supply, there will be an increase in price to compensate for the heavily desired asset.
This is called "Price Elasticity" and, that is exactly what has happened.
Due to this massive surge in demand, the price of houses in the state of Massachusetts has done nothing but increase.
So where does that leave you, the aspiring investor? How can you get involved in the action with limited capital or experience?
Is it even too late to dive into the real estate market?

Abandoned properties can be found in nearly every city across the nation and their low cost is making them increasingly popular with investors. More than 16 million homes—nearly 1 in 10 American homes in all—were classified as ”vacant” in the 2020 census.
Abandoned properties are typically homes near foreclosure or under some other severe financial distress. To be considered abandoned, the owner must have vacated the property and decidedly given up rights to ownership. With no occupants, these homes often fall into serious disrepair. This makes abandoned homes attractive to investors looking for a deal, but an eyesore for neighborhoods and communities.
Locating abandoned homes, determining whether a property would actually make a good investment, and understanding how to buy and locate abandoned properties are all important considerations if you plan to include these properties in your real estate investment strategy.

Real estate wholesaling, in all its glory as one of the preferred short-term investment strategies, means you must be able to act and close quickly. As a result, in the real estate joint venture (JV) wholesaling sector, the importance of partnering with the right person cannot be overstated.
