Real estate can be an excellent long-term investment if you’re willing to take risks.

Making sure that your real estate deal is legally compliant

Since real estate is an investment, you need capital to get started and a secured funding source to enter deals.

Things to consider with Real Estate Finance

Tennessee Law

Buyers and sellers of properties in Tennessee should comply with state laws while the transfer and development of property are in process. Investors, with the help of real estate finance lawyers in Tennessee, must ensure that their money and property are legally protected by the state. Some common state laws surrounding real estate financing are the Tennessee Residential Property Disclosure Act, Tennessee Real Estate Broker License Act of 1973, and Tennessee Homestead Law.


Although real estate investment offers promising rewards, it has its fair share of dangers and risks. Real estate financing is all about having capital and securing your property, so investors will mostly encounter liquidity, market, and leverage risks.

Federal Law

If you plan to finance your real estate investment with the help of private financial institutions, property sellers, and other lenders, you have to deal with federal laws to push your transactions forward. When investing, don’t miss federal laws on joint ventures, complex financing structures, listing and showing, mortgage, loans, income tax, and insurance.


Real estate investment has different cost components. Your personal breakdown is based on your financing option, type of real estate property, operation costs, and non-operation costs. Your lawyers and accountant can minimize your investment costs by helping you choose the right real estate finance option.
