Real estate and finance as industries, are intertwined and interdependent. If you buy, a small home for yourself or invest in residential or commercial properties the link between these two industries remains unbreakable. It is a must to not only understand the relationship between the two but also to successfully learn to navigate through the maze of financing a real estate acquisition or selling one to a client.

For financing the banks require a cross-sectional view of your financial state, the history of your assets in the shape of a balanced sheet, and profit and loss statements if you are running a business.  Banks also are interested to know that the real estate that you are requiring has good enough cash flow to pay the monthly mortgage payments so banks don’t end up losing their investments.

The landing environment for real estate depends on interest rates, market conditions, and overall state of the economy. In the high-interest environment, the acquisition cost is high for real estate, but the real estate value may go down because of the lower demand in the market. In this environment, the best strategy is either to pay cash or convince the seller to hold a mortgage for a reasonable time at an affordable interest rate.

In the low-interest environment, real estate prices go up or increase due to high demand and a relaxed credit market created by banks. This is called a sellers' market. In this case, the acquisition cost may go up because of the hike in the prices, however, the variety and the quantity of inventory in the market provide opportunities to position oneself as a serious real estate investor and plan a long-term strategy for a good cash flow.

In a stable real estate market, there is a balance between the demand and supply of the real estate inventory, a favorable and steady interest rate, and overall, the economy is expanding at a steady rate. Understanding the interplay between real estate and finance is essential for navigating the complexities of property acquisition and sale. By staying informed about market trends, assessing personal financial readiness, and seeking expert guidance when needed, individuals can make informed decisions and capitalize on opportunities within the real estate industry.
