With the stock market ever changing, investing in property is a higher security option for your hard earned money. The benefit to you the investor is higher security than some other investment options. Most consumers receive very low rates for their savings which makes it difficult to build your wealth. Not to mention investment choices can be complicated, lack transparency and often times involve high risk. Real estate has typically provided returns over and above the rate of inflation. This is important as it can protect your capital from the erosive effects of rising prices
With property, there are two main potential ways to make a return:
• Rent – you can earn an income by letting out property to tenants.
• Selling for a profit – if you buy property and later sell it at a higher price.
Property prices and demand for rentals can – and does – go up and down. That’s why direct and indirect property investments are for the long term. If you’re willing to wait, you can ride out the losses in a slow housing market and earn profits again when times are better.
