Whether you’re at work, home or even on holiday, you are within this exceptional industry that continues to grow. Ever thought about how you could be investing in Barcelona Real Estate without buying property?
In this guide we will highlight 3 different ways you can do it. Also, we will show you the great returns that you can achieve without the annoying paperwork or tenants associated with buying and owning a property.
1. Real Estate Mutual Funds (REMF)
A Real Estate mutual fund (REMF) is made up of securities, usually stocks, of companies that purchase real estate with money attained from investors. REMF’s are favourable as you can start with small investments if you find it hard investing in real estate directly. This allows rewards with good returns in the case of low investment. Experts and professionals will be handling your funds making sure you are investing in a safe option. Benefit from investing across multiple properties instead of one, giving you diversity. Additionally, enjoy benefits from having the flexibility of investing the amount you desire and have low management involvement. Great returns and portfolio stability are achieved as the fund experts balances out the high-risk investments lowering total risk. As a result, this is a low involvement, low budget investing option and therefore a great way to start in the real estate business.
2. Home Construction
The real estate industry has seen growth in recent years thanks to the limited housing supply meeting client needs. As a result, it is strongly predicted the construction of new houses and renovations are going to boom for the next decade. Consequently, the construction side of real estate also has its rewards and would be a smart move for you. We are currently carrying out a renovation project ourselves called Nordic Developments . The project is focused on bringing a Nordic and Scandinavian touch to Catalan properties. Very soon, home builders will be required to develop new neighbourhoods and rehabilitate those already existing. Investing before they become more popular amongst investors would put you a step ahead of everyone else. Home builder companies are not difficult to find and given a bit of your time and research, you will find the one that fits you best.
3. Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT)
A Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT) is a company that owns, operates or finances income-producing real estate. For a company to be classified as a REIT, they must meet certain regulatory guidelines. This makes for a more reliable and safe investment option for you and your money. The underlying principle of how most REITs operate is by leasing space and passing on collected rent payments to its investors. This is done in the form of dividends they have to pay out to follow regulations. Therefore, they distribute at least 90% of their portfolio’s income to shareholders offering you guaranteed rewards. Another option allowing you to start with a low commitment, avoid dealing with tenants and is easy to start.
