Speculation in real estate has always been controversial. Some have seen it as a “get-rich-quick” investment strategy that can provide false hope to new investors.

Then, there are those who invest in real estate speculation and see a massive return on their investment. Let’s try to understand why this is.

What Is Real Estate Speculation?

The concept of real estate speculation involves buying a property in the hopes of reselling it at a higher price at a later date. This essentially means making a prediction about what future prices will be in a particular market or for a particular property and buying the property before that prediction comes to pass.

Real estate speculation can be extremely profitable if made correctly. Speculators who make the right prediction can reap massive rewards from their efforts.

It is crucial, however, that the savvy investor be knowledgeable about the trends in the market, and not merely guess at them. Unfortunately, real estate speculation has taken down many unwary investors.

Is Real Estate Speculation the Same as Flipping Houses?

Usually, speculation in real estate refers to purchasing a property and reselling it for a greater price with the expectation of it increasing. This usually involves no actual increase in a property’s value to the buyer, only its price.

On the other hand, the process of flipping houses refers to upgrades and improvements that are made to an investment property so that it increases in value.
