Investing In Denver Real Estate

Real estate investing involves the purchase, ownership, management, rental and/or sale of real estate for profit.

Rental Properties

This investment type is the practice of landownership. A person buys a property and rents it out to a tenant or tenants. The owner, (landlord) is responsible for paying the mortgage, taxes, and costs of maintaining the property. The landlord should charge enough rent to cover all of the costs and more in order to cover emergencies and to produce a monthly profit.

Real Estate Investment Groups

Real estate investment groups are like small mutual funds for rental properties. If you want to own a Colorado rental property, but don't want the hassle of being a landlord, a real estate investment group is the solution for you. A company will buy or build a set of apartment blocks or condos and then allow investors to buy them through the company, thus joining the group. A single investor can own one or multiple units of self-contained living space, but the company operating the investment group collectively manages all the units, taking care of maintenance, advertising vacant units and interviewing tenants. In exchange for this management, the company takes a percentage of the monthly rent.

Foreclosures

A property is considered in foreclosure when the homeowner has not made a mortgage payment for at least 90 days. These properties can be purchased before the foreclosure auction (pre-foreclosure) or at the foreclosure auction which is a public sale.
