How Do I Make Money Investing in Real Estate? – Nick Krautter’s Portland Market Report | 2015 Edition

by | Apr 15, 2015 | How to Guides, Market Reports, Video

Welcome to Part Six of my 2015 Portland Market Report!  Here I will illustrate the value of investing in real estate by sharing a story of a triplex I own in North Portland.

Throughout my report we have covered the “who”, “what”, “where” and “why” of real estate investing, but many of you may be wondering simply, “how” do I make money investing?  Sometimes it takes seeing the numbers on paper to make your dream of investing in real estate into an achievable reality.  I have included an actual APOD [Annual Property Operating Data] in my report to show you how my $90,000 investment has the potential to yield $1,088,000 in 30 years time.  Plus, you will see how it will also allow me the ability to reinvest the $360,000 I receive in rental income, over 8 years time, to buy another property, thus leveraging my current investments to expand my portfolio.

How much money do I need to invest in real estate?  How long will it take to see a positive return on my investment?  Should I reinvest the rental income I receive?  The answers to all of these questions and more can be found in this years edition of the Market Report!
