For someone who is looking for an opportunity to invest large amounts of money, real state can be a great option. In the beginning it can produce passive income, and in the long run, there is high chance for the value to increase and give a thick margin for profit.

According to Bas Bergmans, Editor of BrickEX, “Real estate is the largest asset class in the world.”

Then why do the financial experts say that investment in real estate is only a game for the rich? Where is their opinion coming from?

First of all, if you are interested in investing in real estate, you need to realize that you will have to take out a significant amount of money upfront for purchasing the properties. Then, you will be responsible for maintenance costs, which can be reasonably high. If you plan to rent it out, getting good tenants can be a headache.

If properties are not managed properly, you will have to face income gaps or losses. Financial experts also advise that it is not a good idea to borrow money to buy a house or a flat. You should check your budget carefully before making the decision to put up such a heavy investment. If you cannot afford to pay cash for a property, you should at least keep budget for mortgage payments.

With too many things to take care of at a time, property management services can come in handy. In this dynamic environment we are living in today, property management services do not just involve securing tenants and maintenance of the building, but also facility management that gives a feel of a better lifestyle to the residents of the property.
