A Beginner's Guide To Real Estate Investing

       Property, of course, is anything and everything that can be owned.  Real estate property, in particular, is defined as land and all of the physical and man-made developments that are permanently associated and attached to it. This includes not only the ground itself and all that is connected to it, but the air above it and the minerals below it as well as all rights associated therewith.  All property not defined as real estate is personal property.

With the ownership of real estate comes not only the possession of the physical  property and the features that define it, but also the addition of certain legal rights to continuously enjoy the peaceful usage and redistribution of it.  What that means is that when we acquire ownership of real estate property, we also get an accompanying package of claims on the property.  These claims relate to the use, possession, control, enjoyment, exclusion, and distribution of the property, including the right to pass ownership along by way of a will.  Together, these rights change the definition of real estate to real property.

Over the course of time, the ownership and control of real estate has very much become a central part of our lives.  We rely on real property to feed, clothe and provide us with shelter.  In the United States and other highly developed countries,  these basic needs are met in a variety of ways.  As a result of the many technological inventions that have advanced our living standards, people are no longer directly dependent on owning land to meet their essential needs.  Instead, we rent or own apartments or houses that are serviced by utility companies and financed by lending institutions.  We work in office buildings, manufacturing plants and  shops and purchase the products and services we need from stores, play in parks and consume the meat and crops that comes to us from distant farms and ranches.

Many people now have the financial means to proceed beyond the use of real estate for the purpose of supplying their basic requirements.  Now it is increasingly possible and desirable for individuals to buy real estate as an investment, a wealth creator, and a depository of value that can effectively convert the results of their properly directed work efforts into a tangible, profitable asset.

A real estate investment can be described as the commitment  of financial resources  for the purpose of preserving and increasing capital and earning a profit.  Most everybody makes investments of various kinds throughout their lives.  We put our time, energy and money into educating ourselves and our children, buying cars, obtaining health care, accumulating savings and pursuing other ventures in search of gaining a better quality of life.
