Real Estate Investment Guide: Trends to Watch Out for in 2021

Spread the love

Real estate has been a smart, lucrative investment for the last many years, and it is predicted to remain a high-return opportunity in the near future too. Knowing where to invest and when to invest limit the risks and increase the chances of earning more.  

When it comes to real estate investment, the first thing that comes to most people’s mind is home. However, in reality, it has many categories. If you’re thinking of making an informed decision in 2021, look for different types of real estate options, understand their current condition in the modern industry, consider risks and returns associated with them, and figure out which can be the best investment option. 

Types of Real Estate Investment

The modern industry has a range of real estate investment categories, which further have their subcategories. They include:

1. Residential 

  • Rental homes
  • Vacation rental homes
  • Apartments

2. Commercial

  • Retail stores
  • Offices
  • Industrial properties

3. Land

  • Land for residential properties
  • Land for commercial properties 
  • Land for farming 

While choosing any of these options, investors must consider the return on investment (ROI). Apart from that, consider the property’s location, amenities, and similar factors to make an informed decision. 

Top Real Estate Trends for 2021

From land to homes and pre-construction condos, many real estate options are considered safe in 2021. However, there are some trends that buyers or investors must keep in their mind while looking to make an investment:

  • Slim Pickings

In the early months of 2021, inventory was lower than last year’s same period. As per reports, the difference was at least 30%. Low inventory means good houses were picked quickly by buyers. It shows that you don’t have much time to make a decision.

However, you can increase your chances of grabbing a good deal by expanding your search, adjusting your requirements, and getting approved quickly. 

  • Pre-construction Condominium

Earlier, condos were a cost-effective replacement of a home for people who couldn’t afford a house. In 2021, condominiums are luxurious properties that come at a lower price than a home but feature a wide range of amenities.

Pre-construction condos are gaining more attention from investors than ever. These investment options are long-term plans that come with high chances of earnings. Investors book a condo during its initial phase at the current market price and sell it after some years considering its market value at that time.

  • Medical Offices

Investors who are searching for an investment option that provides stability should definitely consider medical offices. During today’s COVID-19 times, hospitals worldwide are experiencing a space crunch. It means providing necessary healthcare functions near high-traffic communities can be a wise investment move.

Although the pandemic has promoted virtual health services, experts believe people will soon require physical space for healthcare, which cannot be delivered online. 

In the End

Remember, no real estate investment option comes with guaranteed success. However, some are securer than others. Before making a decision, try to figure out what can be a safe investment option in the near future.

All the best!
