A lot of people are investing in real estate these days to meet their long-term financial goals. Multifamily property choices are key figures in the real estate market because multifamily housing is seen by many as the most affordable housing option. 

What is a Multifamily Property 

A multifamily property is a property that contains two to four units within the same building structure. A multifamily property can be a duplex, quadplex, condo, small apartment, or townhome. In comparison, properties with five or more units are considered commercial real estate. Multifamily properties are considered an investment and can typically be purchased with a residential-type loan. 

How to Build a Winning Real Estate Investment Portfolio 

A real estate portfolio is simply a collection of real estate assets. It can include properties such as small multi-family buildings, rental properties, and commercial properties. Here’s how to build a winning multifamily property portfolio: 

• Start by learning thoroughly about real estate investing.  

• Write a business plan to guide your efforts. That plan should include investing goals, an investing strategy, and a financing plan for purchasing properties.  

• Look for the features that make a rental property attractive. Research and learn about your market. That includes understanding population growth, the local job market, renter-occupied households, rental unit growth, and location.  

• Research your financing options.  

• Find potential properties to invest in. Start small and don’t “bite off more than you can chew,” as the old expression goes.  

• Proceed to make a property purchase. Get an inspection and a solid appraisal, then negotiate good purchase terms.  

• Gradually scale up your portfolio.
