A number of people take huge debts for investing in property. But, are you really aware of the fact that the use of debt magnifies the investment risk?

Both commercial and residential property investor are affected by this risk.
The unavailability of continuous market, i.e. when a good number of buyers and sellers are not present, it becomes difficult to sell a property. In such circumstances, one has to under-sell the property or wait for longer time, sometime up to a year for perfect price!
This type of risk is based on the ability of the management. How itrespond to economic conditions, maintain the property, negotiate leases, etc. contributes to this. Not only commercial, even the residential properties are affected. You must have seen the difficulties a number of managers and owners face, due to the outdated tenant laws in India, to get hold of their property. Therefore, it is advisable for the management to go for the registered leases for residential and commercial properties.
Another major risk involves legal regulations like tenant laws, registration procedures, restricted use of property, and several other restrictions, which are imposed by the state bodies. While investing, it is important to consider these risks too.
What if you buy or construct a property in the areas under jurisdiction? This will surely affect the returns on your investment. Thus, you need to be a smart buyer.
Hence, if you wish to yield very good profits, you need to be aware of the aforementioned risks. Just don’t go blindly by the words of some real estate managers. Be careful, your alertness can decrease the risk dramatically!
