Whether you are contemplating a specific real estate investment or looking for advice on diversifying your portfolio, having a professional evaluate your current real estate portfolio can benefit you in a number of ways.
No matter how much experience you have with investing in real estate, there are many situations where bringing in a valuation expert can work to your advantage. One of the many services that a real estate valuation professional can assist you with is that of performing a real estate portfolio analysis. Specifically, this type of service can help you maximize income with your investment portfolio, diversity your existing portfolio, and make better educated decisions regarding your real estate investment. Take time to explore just a few of the ways in which a real estate portfolio evaluation can benefit you.
Make Better Educated Investment Decisions
If you are thinking about purchasing a property as an investment (whether it be a residential or commercial property), one of the most important questions you will need to answer is whether or not the property in question is worth the asking price. A professional real estate consultant will be able to strategically evaluate your prospective investment and guide you towards making the right decision for your current and future investment goals.
Diversify Your Portfolio with Confidence
If you are relatively new to real estate investment and are considering diversifying your existing investment portfolio by purchasing commercial or residential real estate, you may be feeling understandably overwhelmed. While real estate is certainly one of the “safest” investments from a diversification standpoint, it is still important that you understand the ins and outs of a prospective investment before you write that check. With a professional real estate portfolio evaluation, you can get the help you need to diversify your investment portfolio with confidence and added peace of mind.
Obtain the Financing You Need More Easily
When purchasing real estate as an investment for the first time, obtaining the financing you need can sometimes be a challenge. This is because most lenders will want at least 20-25% for a down payment, and lenders will want to see a debt-to-income ratio of 45% or less. If you do not already have established, regular income from an existing investment property, these can be difficult terms to meet. Fortunately, by having a real estate portfolio analysis done, you can have documentation of your anticipated profits and income for any given property—and because the calculations have been done by a real estate valuation expert, they will carry more weight. As a result, you may have an easier time securing the financing you need—even if you are new to the investing game.
These are just a few of the ways in which a real estate portfolio evaluation can benefit you as an investor. For more information on portfolio evaluation or to set up your Arkansas real estate portfolio analysis, contact our friendly team at Ferstl Valuation Services today by calling (501) 313-0641.
