Short-term rentals 

It is a great way to invest for those who have limited cash to invest. It will also help investors to earn some extra money with spare houses or accessory dwelling units (ADUs). If you have a property, you can use a portion of it for rental purposes. The rental can be for a short period like a week or a night.

Small residential properties

Purchasing some small residential properties for rental purposes can also be a good initial stage investment in real estate. Buying a couple of houses or a duplex will help you to understand how to maintain rental properties. After building a property portfolio you can hire a property manager to work for you.
