When professional investors consider acquiring a new multi-family real estate asset, they look at a wide range of factors to determine the profitability of the property, including the three listed below.

1. Location. Where a property is situated is arguably the most important factor to consider before making an investment. A property that is surrounded by a quality neighborhood, is within a reasonable distance to amenities, and is near a good school system is more likely to attract reliable tenants.

2. Time commitment. A lower-quality investment property can be obtained at a reduced price, but may require a professional to dedicate much of his or her time to managing the troubles that accompany it. The best real estate investments don’t require an exorbitant amount of attention to maintain.

3. Degree of risk. While all investments come with some degree of risk, an investor should seriously consider risk factors like a property’s potential for appreciation, the amount of equity he or she is buying into, and the cash fluidity of the investment before making the decision to purchase.
