How to Leverage in Real Estate Investing?
One of the most unique benefits of real estate investing is that it can give you the ability to use smart leverage.
Leverage is such a critical part of real estate ownership that we often take it for granted. Where else can I borrow money from A (the bank), pay that loan back with money from B (the tenant), and keep the difference for myself? The too safe leverage is cash flow. If you make sure your property produces more income than it costs to own, the leverage itself doesn't matter as much. Those who "over leverage" property are those who borrow so much against it that they lose money every month.
When you take out a loan to buy real estate, you typically pay it back with the rent money from the tenants. One of the best parts of investing in real estate is the fact that not only are you cash flowing, but you're also slowly paying down your loan balance with each payment to the bank.
In the beginning of these loans, the majority of the payment is going towards the interest of the loan, not the principle. This means you aren't making much of a dent in the loan balance until you've had the loan for a significant period of time. With each new payment, a larger portion goes towards the principle instead of the interest.
After enough time passes, a good chunk of every payment comes off the loan balance, and wealth is created in addition to the monthly cash flow. The best part is, it's your tenant paying this off for you, not yourself. Paying off your loan is another way real estate investing works to grow your wealth passively, with each payment taking you one step closer towards financial freedom.
