This holiday season, everyone wants a little extra cash to spend on those you love. If you are an investor, you might be looking for the money from your investments. If you can squeeze a little higher return from your investments, you might be able to spend a little more in Holiday shopping.
All investors try to increase their rate of return. This is the reason why people invest. Put money away now so that you could have more money in the future. Get as high of returns as you can from the investments so you can have more money in the future and be efficient as possible.
Ways to Increase Your Returns
There are many ways to increase your returns. It’s almost impossible to increase your returns without giving up something else, but here are ways to do it. It’s not easy, but it’s definitely possible.
Increase your Credit
One of the best ways to increase your returns, especially for real estate investing, is to increase your credit score. By boosting your credit score, you can not only get better rates to leverage your money, but also be targeted for new opportunities. Everyone wants to be part of new initiatives, not everyone gets to be. By following some basic steps, you can increase your credit score and ultimately increase your ROI.
Another almost guaranteed way to increase your returns is to sacrifice liquidity. If you can live with not touching your money for a little while, you may be able to find an investment which will give you a better long-term return. I recently invested in a limited partnership that forces me to tie up some capital for 7-8 years minimum, but it allowed me to be part of something that should produce 17%+ annual returns for decades to come.
Partner with Others
There is often an urge to go it alone when trying to invest, but you should resist this urge. Some of the most profitable businesses are those that are formed in partnership with others. If you are looking for a profitable return, why not think outside the box, and invite someone else to join you on that journey. Don’t just partner with anyone, but don’t be afraid to take a little more risk. You’d be surprised at what you can accomplish with a little help.
Increasing your returns can be based on a number of different motives. Whether it be greed, a selfless desire to help others, or the desire to buy more stuff for the people you love this Holiday season, it doesn’t matter. As long as you make wise decisions and work on increasing your returns with the advice above, you can work towards the goal.
