While there are all kinds of stocks and mutual funds that confuse even the most intelligent among us, real estate is a straightforward business to get into. The problem is that many people feel it is too risky. The truth is that there are many diverse types of real estate investing that all carry different risks to the buyer.

One thing is for sure and that is that with proper care and attention properties tend to gain value over time rather than lose value. If you purchase properties today and properly maintain them, you can not only reap years of rental income while paying the mortgage on these properties, but you can also find your retirement home and pay today’s prices for it rather than the prices of tomorrow.

When it comes to real estate it is always good to arm yourself with knowledge before taking any steps and you should carefully discuss all plans for your financial future with your trusted financial planner or advisor. Their job is to give you guidance when making plans and purchases that will affect your financial stability and security.

As I mentioned before there are always risks when it comes to any sort of investment. The same holds true for real estate investing. (“Property Investment for Retirement in Philippines – CAVITE PROPERTY FOR SALE”) Things can go wrong. “On occasion you will find lemon properties, for this reason you need to have a complete and thorough inspection performed before you purchase the property.” (“March 21, 2022 – Page 2”) You should also make sure that you are aware of your state and local laws as they apply to property owners. For this reason, it is a clever idea to consult with an attorney that specializes in this type of financial investing in addition to your financial advisor.

Rental properties are not the only way to build a property investment portfolio. (“Property Investment for Retirement in the Philippines – Havila”) There are all kinds of property investment opportunities for those that are willing to take the risk. When it comes to property investing, the greater the risks often net the greater potential rewards. The thing you must remember is that you are gambling with your financial future. I tend to stick with rental properties as they are a safe bet and pay for themselves over the years while building a nice nest egg for my future.

There is the eternally fascinating investment opportunity that property flipping presents for one. When flipping a property you purchase a property below market value-preferably one that requires minor cosmetic repairs. (“March 21, 2022 – Page 2”) Make the repairs. Then sell the house for a substantial profit. This is a risky venture for those who are novices in the field, and many would be investors have lost a great deal of money doing this. Successful investors, however, can net significant profits in a noticeably short amount of time if they have the knowledge and skills to do the work themselves and time things perfectly.

There are even more property investing opportunities that provide even greater risk, as they are highly speculative known as pre-construction investing. This is the type of investment that creates millionaires. On the other side it has sent many into bankruptcy along the way as well so tread very carefully before engaging in this sort of real estate investing and take great care never to invest more than you can afford to lose.

As you can see there are many opportunities in real estate to create an outstanding financial retirement plan for you and your family. (“Property Investment for Retirement – Free Online Courses, and ideas”) The only decision you need to make is whether this type of investing is a good fit for your comfort zone.

Retirement Planning for Where You Will Live

There are many things that people plan for when planning their retirement. They plan for the trip they wish to make, to have money for gifts for the grandchildren they hope to have, and all kinds of wise and practical things. In the process, however, many people neglect to plan for where they wish to live upon retirement. We are seeing a growing trend of retirees moving to certain communities. (“Retirement Planning for where you Will Live – LaterLifeNow”)

This is fine. It is nice to be around people of similar ages and interests and live in communities that cater to those interests. However, one thing is often overlooked during the process. The prices in these communities, and the average cost of living are quite likely to be different than the cost of living where you are. This is true unless you plan to retire where you live. (“Retirement Planning for where you Will Live – LaterLifeNow”)

The fact is that there is a growing trend among retirees to migrate to certain population centers. The entire coastal region of Florida would almost qualify though not all communities in this area are equal when it comes to being retiree friendly. The problem is that most people who retire live on limited budgets and cannot afford the high dollar real estate that is part for these areas. One solution to that is to decide where you would like to retire and buy real estate in that area early. (“Retirement Planning for where you Will Live – LaterLifeNow”)

There are all kinds of housing communities being built around the nation as we speak. In addition to these, the community’s high-rise towers and condominiums are being built to cater not only to time-share renters but also retiring baby boomers that are moving into these areas.

The earlier you buy the better, as property values do tend to increase gradually over time. There are trends, twists, and turns but property will gain in value given enough time in which to do so. The good news in these ‘time share’ and popular destination areas is that you can own the property and rent it out for a little extra income while you are bidding your time waiting for retirement. (“Retirement Planning for where you Will Live – LaterLifeNow”)

Once you have purchased a property in the area you can make the rounds and get a good comparison for the value of goods and services in the area compared with what you are accustomed to. (“Retirement Planning for where you Will Live – LaterLifeNow”)

You can add the difference in your calculations for what you will need when making your retirement plans. Failing to do this can result in some incredibly sad situations many retired people find themselves in. These could include living in substandard and unsafe housing and not having enough money left after paying the rent to cover the cost of food and medication, much fewer other needs that may be encountered.

You should also make sure that you add a little cushion of money into your planning so that you can occasionally through caution to the wind and do something fun. What good is it to be retired if you can never afford to celebrate a little? Make sure you have enough money set aside to take that cruise every spring or fly up to see the grandkids two or three times a year. You want to make sure that you can enjoy your retirement, or you will find endless days of staring at the television. (“planning for retirements”) What fun is that?

The costs of living in this country from one region to the next can be significantly different. If you do not consider where you will be living upon retirement when calculating the numbers, you are doing yourself a great disservice. This is something you will want to discuss with your financial planner before it is too late to make the changes that will affect your future and retirement needs. It is good to have dreams of where you would like to retire but it is even better to take the steps necessary to make your retirement dreams a reality.
