What type of investments for beginning investors

You Let's talk about the different types of real estate investments. You can claim to be a real estate investor whether you buy an acre of swampland in Florida or the Taj Mahal. But which is the best investment for you and why?

There are these types of real estate:

  • Raw land: undeveloped real estate, Examples would be rangeland or, in a city, empty fields that don't have improvements such as utilities hookups or curb and gutter.
  • Developed land: Land that has been improved and is either already built own or ready to be built on.
  • Apartments: A building with rooms or individual dwelling units that people live in but do not own. The tenants make payment to the landlord (the owner or his representative), usually on a monthly basis.
  • Mobile Home: A person residence, considered to be private property, which is not permanently attached to the land and may be moved to another location or mobile site.
  • Condominium: Typically, condominiums are multi-unit housing complexes where individual apartment-like units are purchased instead of rented. Each condominium owner has his or her own deed or mortgage. Typically, owners of these housing units are required to pay a monthly common fee, which pays for all outside maintenance, lawn care, and common utilities fess.
  • co-ops: similar to a condominium, but ownership exists in share of the total building, not in one specific unit. As a member of a co-op, you are assigned to one specific living unit within a complex.
  • Residential property: Property or land that is zoned by the local government agencies to be used for single-family homes or other living quarters.
  • Hotel or motel: A property where individual sleeping rooms or suites are rented by the night.
  • Commercial property: Property that is specifically zoned by the local government authorities for commercial users such as shopping centers, stores, and laundries.
  • Industrial property: Property that is specifically zoned by the local government authorities for industrial uses such as manufacturing and processing plants.

Of these many types of investments, only two are really ideal for the beginning investor: single family homes and apartments. Mobile homes and raw land rarely if ever return even the original investment, and commercial and industrial properties are expensive and very complicated investments.
