With real estate investments, there are different kinds of strategies or business models. Each of these
strategies has their own advantages and disadvantages.

But on an overall level, real estate (regardless of the strategy) is one of the best ways to increase your
income, build up your asset/retirement portfolio and achieve a high level of financial freedom.

The right real estate investment strategy for you is dependent upon your own skills and resources. There
are some strategies that may suit you, some may turn out very risky with the current resources you have at
hand. So make sure that you exercise due diligence before choosing an investment strategy that is right for
you.

An article I just read at CTHomesLLC.com discusses three important considerations you'll have to keep in
mind when choosing the right real estate investing strategy.

The 3 important considerations are: Your goals, your resources and your skills.

With that said, here are the different investment strategies and how it suits different
people....

1. Rental

Rental is one of the most effective long-term real estate investment strategies. Rental investments not
only provide you passive recurring income each and every month but also boost your net worth
significantly overtime.

The properties that you hold can be used as a security for future investments and other expenses that you
may encounter in the future.

But the problem with rental investments is financing. Unless you have cash reserves to invest in high
value properties or can get funding for these deals from other sources, I recommend that you stay away.

2. Rehab and resell

The other investment strategy that you can consider is rehab and resells. Rehab and resell is often
effective because you can get funding for your rehab investments easily from hard money lenders who
provide short-term high interest loans.

Using these loans, you can put the property under contract, renovate the home and sell it for a much
higher price. You can generate a lot of cash flow every now and then using this model. The profit margins
can be high too provided you successfully resell the property.
3. Wholesale

If you're just starting out and have very little money, I highly recommend starting out with wholesale real
estate. Wholesale real estate is about finding deeply discounted properties and selling them off in bulk to
other real estate investors who might be interested in rehab and resell or rentals with the home.

Whatever business model you choose, you have to ensure that your real estate business brings in
CONSISTENT cash flow. Without consistent cash flow, you won't be able to attract the funding you need
for all of your real estate investments regardless of your credit score. As a real estate investor, that's your
first TASK - Building a successful business that generates cash flow.

cash flow business. If you'd like to find out if Personal Wealth Academy can really help you build a strong
