Why Real Estate Is a Good Investment

Aug 17, 2007
Though real estate never made headlines like the share markets, Internet or BPO booms, it has provided a steady and lasting source of income through the years. With the incessant progress of the economy, the property rates are soaring like never before. In a regular job you are required to barter your effort and time for money, whereas in real estate business your money itself makes you more money. By managing rental properties you can engage actively in moneymaking or else you can let any of the limited partnership companies handle your cash. Engaging in real estate is the wisest choice if you want to sensibly invest your hard earned money long term.

Apart from being the alternative income source, real estate property deals offer a lot of other rewards. Tax subsidies are the most alluring and add to the profits. When you own a property, you are eligible to deduct direct expenses from rental income. In the income tax deduction columns, charges for maintaining, cleaning, insuring and screening tenants for the property are included. The depreciation and interest expenses on mortgages also qualify for deductions. Although, principal payments for mortgages cannot be directly written off, they benefit you by figuring into the depreciation section.

Real estate property is an asset and apparently land is the only kind of asset, which is known to undergo appreciation on a yearly basis. It is noticeable when you take a look at the land rates which are soaring sky high with each passing year. This is a dual benefit for the real estate owners. Firstly, it generates huge amount of income and also saves tax by qualifying for various tax deductions under the government taxation rules. Secondly, since the assets value in the market keeps increasing day by day, it impacts net worth of the investor and builds equity over time. Hence, you are in possession of a property, which increases in value without costing the investor much time investment.

Investing in real estate is equated with stability since it is not as unpredictable as the share or bond markets. Although, similar to other asset classes, real estate has its own periodical cycles of ups and downs, there are certain areas which remain fairly consistent. For instance, the housing projects, whether they are purchases or rental schemes, are generally in demand. The increasing population and improved spending capacity of the masses makes them take up multiple real estate properties. Neither does the real estate experience a boost as high as the stocks nor does it recess that way and its well-balanced assortment of activities make it a safe bet for those who do not want to take excessive risks.

Real estate investors must however be ready for the long term. It is neither easy to identify profitable properties nor to sell them quickly to realize gain. Real estate investing is therefore a business that requires patience.

Real estate bids give you the closest and most truthful insights into your monetary investments. You can be assured that your investments performance will not only be evident but also free of any hidden costs being charged.
