The market of foreign investment real estate.

1. What is investment property

Investment property — real estate (land and/or building) that is at the disposal of the owner in order to receive rental payments and/or income from capital gains.


Real estate is one of the oldest and most stable investment instruments. Investment real estate is classified into residential and non-residential. Residential real estate purchased for the purpose of generating income is usually considered commercial real estate and includes single-family houses/villas (occupied by the owner) and apartments/apartments in apartment buildings/hotels. And non-residential includes office, retail premises, restaurants... There are also other types of real estate such as warehouses ...


The demand for real estate depends on consumer spending, the economy as a whole, the number of jobs, population growth, the level of savings and the level of tourism in tourist countries and regions)


Rental prices vary depending on the quality of the property, location and type of real estate.

Reasons to invest in real estate


1. Current income. Investors can expect to receive income from rent collection after payment of operating expenses, financing costs and taxes.


2. Capital gains. Due to natural population growth and tourist flow, the value of real estate increases, which increases the total income of the investor.


3. Inflation hedging. During inflation, investors expect an increase in both rents and property values.


4. Diversification. Real estate, especially private equity investments, reduce risk compared to expected returns.from investments in stocks and bonds.


5. Tax benefits. In some countries, real estate investors enjoy preferential tax treatment.

Main risks


1. Inflation. Property values may not keep pace with inflation when markets are weak and vacancy rates are high.


2. Cost and availability of capital. Real estate must compete with other investments for capital. The demand for real estate decreases when there is little borrowed capital and interest rates are high. Conversely, demand is higher when borrowed capital is easy to obtain and interest rates are low. Thus, real estate prices can be influenced by the forces of the capital market without changing the demand from tenants.


3. Demographic factors. The demand for real estate depends on the size and age composition of the local market population, the distribution of socio-economic groups and the rate of formation of new households.

3. Evaluation of commercial real estate

Comparative approach
First of all, the value of commercial real estate is determined by the market value; that is, the most likely sale price that a typical investor is willing to pay. The sales comparison approach is most useful when there are several properties similar to the item that have recently been sold, as is usually the case with single-family homes.

A costly approach
With the cost approach, the cost is determined by adding the cost of land to the cost of a new building, minus adjustments for estimated depreciation and obsolescence. The cost approach is often used for unusual properties where comparable transactions are limited.

Profitable approach
The cost is based on the expected profit required by the buyer to invest in the assessed property, which also allows you to determine the payback period In the income approach, two methods of assessing the value of real estate are used: the direct capitalization method and the discounted cash flow method.

5. Stages of investment property development


Before purchasing real estate for the purpose of investing for a long time, it is necessary to understand at what stage the market of the country where it is planned to purchase real estate and receive rental income is located. In total, it is considered to be 4 stages of development of the real estate market. The duration of each stage is on average 7 years.


1. The phase of decline. It is observed in an oversupplied market where the number of available real estate is increasing. The owner of the property needs to make intensive efforts in the field of marketing and finding financial support. Real estate prices are declining. This is the buyer's market.


2. Absorption phase. Due to the lack of new construction, which is the result of the recession phase, the decline in real estate prices, the supply and demand in the real estate market begins to grow. The market absorbs idle objects. After the investment surpluses are absorbed, rental rates will begin to rise.


3. The phase of new construction. The demand in the construction market is increasing along with a reduction in supply. Rental rates increase along with the price of real estate. During this period, the inflation rate increases, and the cost of construction increases, which increases the sale price of the property.


4. The saturation phase of the market. The growth of real estate sales is slowing down. There is a surplus of finished construction products and capacities. The level of employment begins to decrease, and construction activity gradually stops.


The best time to increase property is the phases of the absorption cycle or the period of new construction. At the same time, the real estate market is emerging in Bali, which is more like the beginning of an absorption cycle - this suggests that in the next 14 years, an increase in the value of real estate and rental rates is expected. #0385a6
