Passive Income is a form of income received on a regular basis with minimal effort on the investors part.
Being real estate investors is not just about earning money. It’s not just about buying, selling and gaining profit from customers. Real estate is about investing yourself into it. It requires your time, heart and effort.
You earn from the tenants monthly rents for a specified period of time, depending on the length of their stay in your rental agreement. Here, you will initially invest in buying homes, apartments, townhouses or even vacation houses with the intention of renting it out.
The source of passive income here is typically the same with that of residential real estate. In this case, commercial buildings are leased out for small business owners as offices or business storefronts. The monthly rents can be a source of passive income.
Examples for this are storage units, carwashes, workshops and other special purpose spaces. The passive income generated from these are also the same with the two previously mentioned with a difference in the type of its tenants or its use. Owners of this type of real estate property usually put up some add-ons in the premises such as coin-operated machines or other vending machines. This helps them increase the rate of their return on their investment.
These are shopping malls, strip malls and other retail shops. Oftentimes, aside from its tenant’s monthly rental fees, the owners of this type of real estate investment also receive a percentage from the revenues of their tenants’ businesses. Owners of these real estate properties will then use the money to maintain the property in top-notch condition.
This is a combination of any of the above-mentioned types. This type of real estate investment is popular for those with a sufficient amount of assets because they have a significant degree of built-in diversification. That plays a major part in controlling and minimizing risk.
This is a trust that owns or finances income-producing real estate. In many cases, these companies also manage the properties.
There are significant differences between regular stocks and real estate investment trusts but both can help provide passive income.
Lastly, make an effort. Hard work means a lot in every successful journey. You should have the courage to do everything to keep your business running. Always remember, nothing worth having comes easy. Do something to make success possible for you and your organization.
