This is a really amazing questionnaire on real estate investment also It is very informative.
This is true. You have to know the market that you are planning to invest. Learn about the laws and regulations. Any kind of investment has a percentage of risk. The same goes for Real Estate investment. There is always a risk. Sometimes the risk is smaller than others. It is up to you if you are willing to proceed with the riskier option or not.In my humbled opinion, If you have money and a bit of common senses with guts and patience to wait few years, the Real Estate Investment is an easy business task providing you have some ability to make the right choice in the type of property ( Land, Villas, Apartments, Residential, Commercial, Industrial etc. ) and have some knowledge to foresee the possible risks( Calculated Type ) and how to mitigate it. Investment in Real estate in North America is well protected and profitable though profits are taxable. However, Investments in general in the Middle east is risky as there are no Laws & Regulation to regulate the Industry and to protect the Investor's money. This depends on your skill and experience in the process of Risk Assessment & Mitigation I have invested in Nakheel company ( Nakhla jabal Ali Project ) and Also in Amwaj Islands in Bahrain, the results were great. I also invested in Chapal World in Emirate City in Ajman and also in Durrat Al Bahrain and Gulf Finance House Projects development schemes, all turned to be disasters and brought me nothing but nightmares . Be careful, particularly when you think of investing in the middle east where accountability and Investor's Protection Laws and Order are missing.
