Is it a good time to invest in real estate?  Reply with quote  

My friend wants to sell her hotel which has 17 room in using (because she has three hotels and don't have enough time for taking care all). She wants to sell 5billion VND (about 250.000usd). Is it a good time to invest in real estate?

I certainly think that it is a great time to invest in real estate as long as it is bought at the right price. The right price to me is that when you buy real estate that is NOT based on the expectation of what you expect the property to be worth, but when you buy it is a good price for today and that the property will generate revenue right now.

Also, if the property happened to burn down will the price that you paid for the the property be less than what the insurance company would pay out. Another question to ponder is, "What is the replacement cost to rebuild the property and is the price that you purchased the property less way less than that amount?"

If you're able to make a RE purchase and it can generat revenueat the current rental rates and it is below the replacement cost of rebuilding the property, I believe that you have a good deal and a wise investment or purchase! Very Happy

As per my understanding, it surely is a great time to make investment in real estate. It is possible to purchase at an affordable cost.

Yes, this is the best time to invest in real estate sector of US. From last two years real estate sector of US is growing. According to the latest reports, US real estate sector is growing with the annual rate of 1.6%.

So you must invest in the sector of real estate in US. For this you have to do a proper research. Better thing would be to talk with professional real estate agents in order to take expert opinion for investment.

Rates are low, sales seem to be increasing, so sure real estate is a good place to put you money. But a 17 room hotel is less about the real estate and more about buying a job. 17 rooms wont generate enough money to hire a good manager, but its too big for one person to handle. You have staff it 24/7, you have to market the business, insurance costs are high.

A hotel is more of a business investment than real estate investment. It may very well be a good investment, but you have to look at the business as well as the real estate.

It is by far the best time to invest in real estate, because the rates are low as market situation is down, I suggest you to buy the hotel place and keep it with you for business or let it out for getting rent and keep the property for long time you will get surely good value from it in long run.

I would like to share few things that I have learnt from my personal experiences and through some of my friends. Investment in Real Estate is some time the task included with Risk. The Real Estate is one of the best fields to earn more amount in less period of time. The necessary measures has to be taken before investing in the field. We should verify some of the details like where to invest and how to invest, the location, amount investment is worth able or not, Is that place have demand to invest the amount on it or not and many more tasks has to be taken into consideration. The proper consultancy of  an experienced person would better serves the purpose of investing.

You could ask for a discount since she's your friend. But if the price is already a great deal then go for it. Success on every business lies on hardwork, location, marketing, and advertising.
