The Top 8 Ways to Make Money from Your Investment Property

System - Friday, November 25, 2022

When you invest in real estate, your primary objective is to create a profitable asset. It’s not just about creating somewhere to live; it’s about generating a financial return on your investment that will grow over time. It’s also important to remember that real estate is an asset class that can be volatile in any market. There are many different ways to invest in real estate and each person has their own risk profile. That being said, here are the top 8 ways to make money from your investment property.

Long-term investing

Long-term investing is just like any other long-term investment. You’re putting down a significant amount of money and hoping to get returns over a period of 10 years or more. Real estate investment trusts (REITs) are a great way to invest in real estate in a long-term manner. REITs are companies that buy and manage real estate (including mortgages) and pay out dividends as a percentage of their profits.

Short-term investing

One great thing about short-term investing is that it allows you to get in and out of the market quickly and easily. If you’re interested in short-term investing, you might want to look at buying stocks in real estate companies. While a lot of people take a short-term view of the stock market, real estate has historically done well in times of economic instability. When you invest in real estate stocks, you’re putting your money into the management of these companies. If they do well, you can make more money than if you had invested in a REIT (since REITs pay out dividends). However, if they do poorly, you’re going to lose money just as quickly.

Debt financing

Debt financing is usually a safe way to make money with your real estate investment. You borrow money from a lender, such as a bank or private lender, and use it to buy real estate. You then pay back the loan with interest over a set period of time. You can use debt financing to buy an investment property or buy shares in a real estate investment fund. If you take out a loan to buy an investment property, you might need to put down a large down payment. You also might need to get a mortgage and pay high interest rates. You can use debt to buy a single investment property or shares in a fund that owns many properties.

Equity financing

Equity financing is when you partner with an investor who puts up the money in exchange for a portion of the income from your investment property. There are many different ways you can use equity financing to make money with your investment property. For example, you could partner with a friend or family member to buy a duplex or triplex. You could also partner with an investor who specializes in buying multi-unit properties.

Resale / Capitalization

Resale and capitalization value are based on the expected resale value of your property. You can use these methods to determine how much money you can make when you eventually sell your investment property. You can use resale value to help determine how much to spend on repairs or renovations. For example, if you plan to sell a house for $300,000, you can add up the cost of the renovations and see if it’s worth it. Resale and capitalization value can be misleading in a market where prices are rising quickly. In this case, you’re better off using capitalization value.

Coaching and consulting services

If you have a skill or expertise in an area, you may be able to profit from it. You can use your expertise to coach people or provide consulting services to individuals or businesses.

Property management services

If you don’t want to be an owner-operator, you can make money by managing property for people. You can offer your services to people looking to invest in real estate but aren’t interested in taking on the hands-on role. You can find clients by networking with other real estate investors, at industry conferences, and via online forums and websites.


When it comes to investing in real estate, there are many ways to make money. You can invest in long-term projects, short-term projects, or by buying shares in a real estate fund. You can also use debt or equity financing to get the money you need to buy the property. Real estate investing can be a very lucrative way to grow your nest egg. It’s important to remember that real estate investing can be risky. You need to do your research, stay informed of the market, and build a solid plan for how you’re going to get started.
