One of the best assets to own is unarguably real estate, and many of the world’s most renowned millionaires have at one point, or the other used real estate as a vehicle to earn passive income and simultaneously secure their wealth.

Most people shy away from real estate investments because of the general perception that real estate is expensive to own. While real estate has a higher entry price compared to stocks and bonds, there are still several easy ways to kick start your journey as a real estate investor without breaking the bank.

Here are three simple ways to invest in real estate on a budget:

  • Invest in co-ownership schemes: Co-ownership is an investment scheme that standard real estate development companies usually offer. The scheme enables two or more investors to contribute funds to acquire a single rental property. A facility manager is assigned to manage the property and share the rental returns amongst the co-owners of the property. This investment strategy can be done with friends.

  • Get a mortgage plan: Good old mortgage is a great option to consider when you have a low budget. In Nigeria, most federal institutions provide mortgage support for staff members. If you work in the private sector, you can encourage your human resources personnel to include mortgage support in the employee welfare packages or join a cooperative society that offers mortgage loans to members.
  • Request for a flexible payment plan: Many notable real estate developers offer flexible payment plans on lands and rental properties to remove the pressure of one-off payments. When you find a suitable property, you can negotiate for a personalized, flexible payment plan and pay for the property in bits. Some real estate companies offer up to 24 months payment plans.
