Buying on speculation

Certainly not the safest real estate investment concept but one that was been very successful for people in the past. Buying real estate on speculation essentially means you plan to make your capital (sale revenue) from the equity growth of the property, rather than obtaining a tenant and waiting for the years to pay off the mortgage. Purchasing pre-sale, waiting a few years and selling before completion is a perfect example. You are required to pay the deposit up front but that’s it. This has proven to be lucrative at times but quite the opposite when the property values decline. Remember to always be prepared (qualified) to complete the sale and be cognizant of the fact that the property value could decline instead of increase.
