Real estate investment is known to have a high return or capital gains. Investment property can be sold or put on rent in order to achieve capital gains. As a result, many organizations invest in real estate for returns. These investments are handy when the organization requires funds.
However, while real estate is a great asset class to invest in, it’s also important to diversify the real estate portfolio. Here’s more on the diversification of a real estate portfolio:
Asset class diversification
While real estate seems like an asset class in itself, there are asset classes that exist within the real estate market too. Some of the most common real estate investments include single family homes and apartments and while they can be lucrative, it’s important to diversify the real estate you’re investing in. That doesn’t mean you invest in more single family homes, rather, you consider investing in other real estate asset classes like multi-family properties, office buildings, mixed-use properties, vacation homes, etc.
Other than investing in multiple properties to diversify the risk of your portfolio, consider investing in real estate in other locations too. As real estate is a very local economy, it’s risky to have multiple properties in the same area as the real estate market can crash, affecting your entire portfolio. By having real estate in other cities, states, or areas, it’s easier to maintain a profitable portfolio and reduce the concentration risk. As they say, never have all your eggs in one basket.
Reduce the overall risk of your portfolio
The overall aim of diversifying any investment portfolio is to reduce the overall risk. By having various kinds of real estate on your portfolio, you aren’t as badly affected by a dip in prices of single-family homes, for example, as the demand for commercial properties is still stable.
