Why Invest in Real Estate in Washington D.C.?

Everyone and their mother are chasing investment properties in D.C. because they finally got the memo from 2010 that D.C. rentals are a great investment. Let me be blunt: Unless you already purchased property when prices were lower, that ship has sailed. Let me be even more blunt: If you’ve never done this before, pay attention. People don’t get rich in real estate when they don’t understand how the industry works. Sure, unsuspecting people may have experienced windfalls during the run-up of prices in 2000-2006, but the market corrected most of those loopholes. Loans aren’t as easy to get as they once were so there aren’t as many buyers in the game as there once were. Buyers now are serious — they’re pre-qualified, they have down payments and good credit.

If you still want to be a landlord, there are number of other District offices that come into play to govern the landlord-tenant relationship. A full list and description of the services offered is included in the Landlord Tenant Act.

The real estate market in D.C. is very efficient. Homes that have true investment potential typically end in a bidding war bloodbath. It’s unfortunate that I have the same conversation with beginner would-be investors at least once a week, but they all reveal that they had no idea about any of this. This is where my universal advice about investing in real estate stands: Just because you saw it on a Reality TV Home Improvement Channel, doesn’t mean it’s something that can be pulled off in real life — especially if your only experience with real estate investing is based on what you see on TV. The market here is too efficient and the career investor too savvy to allow anything with true potential to sit on the market waiting for a novice to swing by with a checkbook and a dream of quick easy wealth.
