In this episode of the Wealth Amplifier, George Antone uncovers the principles at the heart of every real estate deal. With this knowledge, you can make better decisions as a real estate investor.

The Three Pillars of Real Estate Investment

Real estate investing is not only about picking the right property and raising capital. It involves three crucial aspects: the asset, the capital, and the capital structure.

When analyzing a real estate investment, most people focus their attention on choosing the best assets and raising the capital needed to do a deal. There is, however, a third factor that most investors overlook.  How you structure the capital to fund your deal is key to achieving your financial goals.

Unpacking The Three Pillars of Real Estate Investing‍

According to George, there are three pillars in any real estate deal:

The Three pillars of a real estate deal

1. The Asset: Choosing the Right Property

The asset is the core of any real estate investment. Real estate assets include residential houses, mobile homes, multi-family units, commercial properties, and even vacant land, among others.

Real estate assets can also include legal instruments like promissory notes, which are agreements between borrowers and lenders. Making informed decisions in selecting the right assets is vital for successful real estate investing.

2. The Capital: Funding Your Investment

Capital is the lifeblood of real estate investing. Once you’ve identified a promising property, the next step is securing the necessary funds. This can be achieved through personal savings, mortgages from financial institutions, or private lending. Each funding method has its own set of advantages and challenges, and choosing the right one is critical.

3. The Capital Structure: Balancing Debt and Equity

Often overlooked yet crucial, the capital structure refers to the mix of debt and equity used to finance a property acquisition. The right balance between these two can significantly impact the long-term success of a real estate deal. Understanding and optimizing your capital structure can be the difference between a profitable investment and a failed one.
