5 Smart Ways to Profit from a Hot Housing Market

For housing market investors, rental properties have a number of drawbacks, ranging from poor renters to expensive repairs and while poorly prepared investors risk their equity if they overpay on a property, the strong housing market suggests that with preparation, there are plenty of opportunities to be found.

Five Ways to Profit from the Housing Market

Investment Properties

Buying an investment property is a straightforward way to make money in the housing market. Buy a house and rent it to long-term tenants or invest in a multi-unit rental property.

Real Estate Investment Trusts (RIETs)

A real estate investment trust (REIT) is a form of mutual fund which invests in real estate. A commercial property portfolio or other real estate assets are purchased using money raised from investors.

Flipping Real Estate

It is another tried and tested method for making money from the housing market. Fix and flip and BRRRR (Buy, Refurbish, Rent, Refinance, Repeat) methods are where the investor purchases a property, pays for repairs and renovations, and then resells it for a profit or finds tenants.


Crowdfunding is a relatively new way for making investments in real estate, yet there is money to be made. When a developer or professional investor sees an opportunity to buy or build a commercial real estate asset, they may choose to crowdfund a portion of the project’s funding.

Interest-Based Income through Investing in Mortgage Notes

Mortgage notes can be an excellent real estate investment for those interested in a steady income. You receive monthly payments that include interest and principal when you purchase a mortgage note.
