The acquisition of real estate is not only associated with risks such as the loss of rental income, but also with possible renovation and repair costs, insurance premiums and fluctuations in returns. In addition, not everyone is financially able to purchase a property directly. Purchasing real estate is associated with high costs, especially in large cities.
Anyone who has decided against buying real estate and still wants to benefit from the real estate boom should consider real estate funds as an attractive alternative to direct investments. Investors’ capital is broadly diversified and invested in land and real estate. In this asset class, a distinction is made between open and closed real estate funds. An open real estate fund, also known as an open-end fund, invests mainly in commercial real estate. For example, office complexes, hotels, practices or buildings for retail companies are bought with the aim of generating the highest possible returns through rental income and / or resale. In addition to open real estate funds, there are closed real estate funds. However, we advise against closed-end real estate funds. In addition to the risk of total loss, there are other risks and disadvantages with closed-end funds. These additional risks include liability risks. Because as an investor you are a co-entrepreneur and are usually liable as a limited partner with your full contribution. Obligations to make additional payments are now the exception, but still cannot be ruled out.
