Getting into rental property / real estate investments

Microsoft horizontal
Nov 8 22 Comments

Hello fellow investors,

Any advice on how does one get into real estate rental property investments ? I am looking for remote property management with as little headache as possible, well established management companies/websites where I can just deposit money and get passive returns ?

I have about 500k in stock market(401k + vanguard/betterment + RSUs + more). And about 250k liquid cash. At this point I am looking to diversify and get into passive income through rental properties or other means.

Still on H1b, so it has to be passive income.

Buying entire condo/rental apartments wouldn't be my first choice, rather I would probably want to start with a 100k or less first time investment. May be a share of a popular renting/airbnb spot.

Are there such companies who would just take my money, invest in a range of properties in part or full at location and property types of my choice and availability, and return me a monthly passive income ?

Would also appreciate if you can share your success stories and how you began.

TC : 410k
Yoe : 15

      How is your experience with returns on REITs ? Is it generally better than index funds ? Any specific one you recommend ?

      REIT.com May answer those questions. This is my first year doing a reit etf. Specific reit like AMT has gone up a lot due to market worrying about recession and 5G cell towers. I recently saw NRZ with like a 14% yield, shocking... I wouldn’t compare reits to other index funds because I think of buying reit as a diversification to traditional stock market.

  • Maybe down payment for 5 condos and rent them out one at a time? There r loads of constructions in South Bay and East Bay also with high demand.

    • Well it depends on where you're buying. The ones that were costing 600k about 5-8yrs back in mountain view and SF r all now almost million.

      Yes, but would you buy those condos at 1m.

      No but I would consider the desired location closer to it. That's how growth expanded all the way till Tracy.

    I buy SFHs in central valley. Not really successful yet but I plan to buy a lot in the next few years and hopefully they appreciate.

    Yeah, if you dont want direct involvement or responsibility, might as well buy REITs or as someone said, real estate related securities
