Building Family Wealth Through Real Estate

By

We have discussed about how owning a home could significantly increase a person's net worth. Today we're giving you four more proven ways on how real estate can build sizable family wealth.

1. Appreciation
"The rising of home prices over time, is how the majority of wealth is built in real estate. This is the 'home run' you hear of when people make a large windfall of money. While prices fluctuate, over the long run real estate values have always gone up, always, and there is no reason to think that is going to change.

One thing to consider when it comes to real estate appreciation affecting your ROI is the fact that appreciation combined with leverage offers huge returns. If you buy a property for $200,000 and it appreciates to $220,000, your property had made you a 10% return. However, you likely didn't pay cash for the property and instead used the bank's money. If you consider that you may have put 10% down ($20,000), you actually have doubled your investment, a 100% return."

2. Leverage
"By nature, real estate is one of the easiest assets to leverage I have ever come across-maybe the easiest. Not only is it easy to leverage the financing of it, but the terms are incredible compared to any other kind of loan. Interest rates are currently below 5%, down payments can be 20% or less, and loans are routinely amortized over 30-year periods."

3. Paying Off the Debt
"One of the best parts of investing in real estate is the fact that...you're slowly paying down your loan balance with each payment to the bank... After enough time passes, a good chunk of every payment comes off the loan balance, and wealth is created."

4. Forced Equity
"Forced equity is a term used to refer to the wealth that is created when an investor does work to a property to make it worth more... Example of this would be adding a third or fourth bedroom to a property with only two, adding a second bathroom to a property with only one, or adding more square footage to a property with less than the surrounding houses."

Though Green was talking about investors, the same could be said about a family upgrading their own home.

Green put it best by saying:

"There are many ways to build wealth in America, but real estate might be the safest, steadiest and simplest way to do so."

I have a lot of commercial  real estate and farmland, but a bad cash flow. Sometimes having all that land is a curse. My 8 year old grandson will end up getting more out of the land, than my children or me!
