Investing can take you down so many avenues. Real estate investing is one of the best opportunities, but why? First and foremost, people always need a place to live. Second, you have physical assets that represent the money you have invested. Third, property values are always on the rise. The list literally keeps going and going, so let’s keep looking more closely at why real estate is a good investment.
Are you looking to hedge against inflation? Who isn’t? I’ll admit, I’m big into the stock market, but real estate represents physical property that you own. Some people don’t enjoy diving too far into the world of investing, and so they end up leaving extra money in a liquid savings or money market account. Now how are you supposed to beat inflation doing that?
Buying A Property
You do need a liquid savings of course. But why not put your money to work for you? Let’s say you wanted to buy a property. First, buying it and maintaining it means that property is going to increase in value. Rent it out, and you have consistent income each month on that property as well. Doesn’t that sound like a good idea to you?
Not too long ago, I purchased an oceanfront condo at a rock bottom price. It is a unit that could be rented out throughout the year for substantial profits. However, it is my primary residence. I still own the property though as it increases in value. One of these days, I might be renting it out when I move into a house and start a family. Even if I don’t rent it out, I hold a vacation property that continues to appreciate.
I plan to pick up more properties as I build up my investments, too. As I mentioned, I also like to invest in the stock market. I like all types of investments, but I am an income investor. You build up enough dividend stocks, and you have consistent income. That is all I have to do is keep building. It’s not easy, but it works. It is also fun.
About Real Estate Investing
A friend of mine has been talking to me about real estate investing. I didn’t really think it was something I would ever get into doing, but then I realized I was already in the market. I have a vacation property. Then I realized it fits my plan for income investing, and I recognized the opportunity. I developed a passion for making it a part of my business, so we will see how that works out.
Maybe you have also developed a passion for real estate. You can buy for income investing, or you can buy and flip houses if you like. For me, I would rather hold on to the properties, but there of course must come a time in which we all buy and sell. You have to decide how you want to handle your investing, but it represents a great opportunity for sure. Are you ready to get started?
