You've probably heard that buy-to-let property is a great investment that yields high returns. That much is true. You've probably also heard that just about anyone can make good money by investing in real estate. That's not true. In fact, investors do not always make good property developers for a number of reasons.
When we say ‘investors’, we're talking about the traditional investor who's typically used to dealing in securities, currencies and other forms of ‘paper’ investments. The thing to understand about property is that it is a real, tangible investment. It requires a completely different mindset than stocks and bonds.
Here are five reasons why investors do not always make the best property developers:
Property developers are a unique kind of investor that tend to put heart and soul into each investment. If you are prepared to put the time and effort into building a good residential property portfolio, you should do very well with this type of investment. However, if you are the type of investor who likes the benefits offered by traditional securities and other paper investments, residential property may not be your cup of tea.
