Real estate investment is a great option for those who are in the position to buy a property right now. The prices are still affordable, and there are plenty of great options available throughout the Western Slope and in Grand Junction, CO. However, there might be a few out there who are still undecided as to whether they really want to buy a piece of property or not. Consider some of the best reasons to take the next step and become a real estate investor.


Extra Income 

Even though you will have an initial expense with the property, you will be able to make a monthly income on it once you rent it out. The longer you hold the property the more money you can make. Once you pay off the mortgage, the majority of the money you receive each month will be profit. Your investment property can increase in value over the years too, which could provide you with even more money if you decide to sell.


Tax Deductions 

You can also receive tax deductions as a rental property owner. You can also write off the interest on the mortgage and on credit cards used to make purchases for the home. In fact, there are a number of different things you will be able to write off for the property. Of course, before you start writing everything off, it’s a good idea to speak with a tax professional just to make sure you do it all correctly.

Grand Junction is a popular location too, so renting a property out is not generally very difficult. Of course, you do need to make sure that the property you buy is in a great area and that it’s a high quality home or condo unit. This is more attractive to those who are looking for rentals, just as they are to buyers.
