5 Reasons Real Estate Is the Best Investment You Can Make

21/07/2021

Many individuals are under the false impression that real estate is an unreliable investment. This however could not be further from the truth, as real estate is one of the most stable investments one can make. There are 5 simple reasons for this:

1) Enjoy a Regular Cash Flow

Real estate is an excellent way of securing a regular income. Property owners can easily earn a monthly cash flow by renting out one of their properties, whilst simultaneously increasing their profits.

Searching for decent tenants and property managers may seem daunting, however, you can easily rely on our experienced property management team.

2) Receive Tax Benefits

Real estate investors, just like business owners, can take advantage of many tax benefits as property ownership is like a business, especially if an investor chooses to rent out their property.

Most landlords do not have to worry about covering the following expenses:

  • Real estate taxes
  • Mortgage interest paid on the loan
  • Homeowner’s insurance
  • Origination points paid on the loan
  • Maintenance expenses
  • Depreciation (spread out over 27.5 years)

3) Guarantee Your Financial Security

The free market is an erratic, unpredictably volatile environment. However, real estate is an appreciating asset that is sure to guarantee your financial security. This can be especially useful for your retirement, as you can easily sell one property and significantly boost the money at your disposal during your retirement.

Whether you own the property during your retirement as a means of receiving a monthly rental cash flow, or sell a property you’ve owned for years to make a profit during your retirement, owning real estate can siginificantly increase your retirement income.

4) Secure an Inheritance for Your Heirs

An asset like real estate which produces income and appreciates in the form of real estate is an excellent inheritance to leave behind for your heirs, as they can either keep the property or sell it and earn profit.

5) Increased Appreciation

Unlike stocks or bonds, property owners can ensure that their investment appreciates.

This can be accomplished by merely maintaining the property, an act that can encourage a  3% – 5% appreciation per year if consistently carried out annually.

Although not every single dollar you spend on renovations will be paid back to you, they generally pay back as much as 80% – 90% of the money you invested.
