- Not doing research
When you are looking for properties to invest in, this is the most overlooked step. Failure can mean average returns and a dead investment. It is important to not only look at the city you are investing in but also research on aspects like the builder’s history, civic amenities, upcoming projects in the area, rental yield, resale value etc. Every bit of research can affect the returns you make on your investment.
- Not evaluating your finances and credit score
Many people rush into their investments without fully evaluating their finances. When investing in a property, many tend to overlook the additional costs of maintaining furnishing, painting and monthly living expenditure. Besides this, you also have home insurance, property tax and duties payable while buying real estate. Make a list of all these expenses as it will help you to make a better decision as to whether you can afford to invest in a property.

The investment process should start with setting a tangible goal of what is the desired outcome of the investment. Different people have different requirements depending on the income level, experience and age. So figure out which category you fall under so you can avoid real estate investing pitfalls.
