Multiples ways of investing in Real Estate without actually buying or owning property.
Last year was one for the record books, with the gains partly driven by tightening inventories and exceedingly low mortgage rates. In some pockets of the country, housing prices rose well over 10 percent on average.
But, it’s not only the big coastal cities that are seeing huge growth. A recent survey from GoBankingRates revealed that many cities with the most growth were inland, including: Buffalo, New York (34.6%), Atlanta, Georgia (24.54%), and Cincinnati, Ohio (20.6%).
With this in mind, you may be wondering if you should throw your hat in the ring and invest in real estate — or, if you’re too late. You may also be wondering if you should invest in real estate in a traditional sense — as in, becoming a landlord.
Now, here’s the good news. Not only is now still a good time to invest in real estate since more growth is likely on its way, but there are also more ways than ever to invest in housing without dealing with tenants or the other minutiae of landlord work.
