    1. 2. Important aspects to focus on when investing in real estate to be able to sell quickly.


    The real estate market is still turbulent because the pandemic isn’t totally under control. To make a final decision, each investor must rely on their knowledge and experience. The market’s true demand is still very high.

    Investors should target the mid-end segment rather than high-end and luxury, with specific products such as apartments and townhouses. Investors should target the segment with large demand and easier liquidity for those who want to sell soon.
