Property investors tend to have specific ideas about the types of properties they will invest in. However, it can be helpful to broaden your view a little bit so you don’t miss out on amazing investments that could benefit your portfolio immensely. Here are a few property types that you should definitely keep in mind for your next investment opportunity.


Types of Properties: Apartment Complexes

Some buyers consider apartment complexes to be a lot of extra work, but they can actually pack a lot of potential profits for the initial investment. One advantage of an apartment building is that you can live in one apartment while renting out the other units, which gives you both profits and a home. If the work of running an apartment building seems like it is too much, you can pay a property management company to take care of the complex and make your life a lot easier. In the long run, your apartment building is an amazing opportunity that will help you to use your capital as wisely as possible.



Another investment option is to purchase townhomes. This will give you less overall responsibility than running an apartment building but will also be an attractive option for potential renters. Many people are opting for townhomes as a housing solution over traditional single-family homes. That means that the potential renter base is expanding, and you have a larger potential for profits moving forward. Don’t leave townhomes off your list, since you would be potentially missing out on a great investment opportunity.


Types of Properties: Office Space 

Some real estate investors completely overlook the possibility of investing in business spaces. This is a huge mistake because there is great potential for growth and profit within the world of commercial real estate. If you are interested in helping small businesses, then this is a type of real estate investment that gives you the opportunity to combine your real estate ventures with your desire to start entrepreneurs off on the right foot. When you provide great space for reasonable rates, you will make profit as well as expand your own network.


As a real estate investor, you are constantly on your toes trying to navigate the changing world of real estate. That makes it even more important to ensure you aren’t avoiding the kinds of properties that might increase your success. With an open mind, you can make the best possible decisions for your investment portfolio.
