Benefits of Investment in Real Estate  Reply with quote  

If you are thinking of an investment then real estate is a good way because of it is a low risk investment option. The biggest benefit of a owing real estate property is an income factor that needs not to be earned rather it comes itself.

If you are thinking of earning more profits than commercial real estate for leasing is a better option. It includes office, shopping mall, restaurants, hotels etc.

Some of the major benefits of real estate investment are mentioned below:

1. Gain more leverage
2. Cash flow
3. Tax benefits
4. Increased tax deduction strategies
5. Positive asset base
6. Long term investment

i think the "low risk" in real estate investment is more subjective in a sense people feel that they can hold on to a physical investment and it's more long term compared to others like stocks/shares. You can see the fluctuations in stocks in hourly basis but for property it takes longer.

Then again depend on your goal on investing. If you have the capital to set aside and willing to settle for longer term investment, real estate might be your thing. For those seeking more liquid investment, try stocks. Or try investing in Indonesia if you want to try flipping properties. Always beware of the terms and conditions though Very Happy.

And I suppose there is low risk in flipping properties.

not with the flipping properties. more on the 'feeling' that real estate has lower risk as it is usually for longer term investment and the price fluctuations usually happen over a period of time. in stocks people will be stuck to the front of their screen every day to see how their money is doing.

real estate has higher risk if you intend to flip though. i watched people who went into buying frenzy after being able to sell 1-2 properties at almost double price, got more properties and stuck with it without being able to sell it back because the people who got their properties before is from developers and no one wants go get some properties with such inflated price.

Sorry, my response was more of a rhetorical statement regarding ShaunAnderson's posting.

Re: Benefits of Investment in Real Estate  Reply with quote  

A big advantage real estate has over other investments, is that it can produce cash flow on a monthly basis. Positive cash flow is derived from the revenue collected in the form of rent and laundry income minus expenditures required to pay for and operate the building. The cash generated by a real estate investment will always be a much larger percentage cash-on-cash return than any other investment. The reason for this is leverage.

It's not enough that you choose the right property. Owning a residential real estate investment (and this also includes strata properties) will only be profitable if you manage it properly. http://www.wastrata.com/

"Low risk?" Like someone said above, that's a subjective statement for sure. What's low risk for one person is high risk for someone else.

The more you know, and the more you can trust the people you work with, the less of a risk you're encountering, I believe.
