Why Real Estate

Aug 17, 2007
When you look at the lists of the wealthiest people in the world, most of the names there have one thing in common. They are all massive property owners. The real estate market does not tend to make the same kind of high profile splashes like the technology investment markets or the oil companies, the real estate market is just about the safest investment you can make. The population of the earth is not going down and those people who are just coming into the world will need a place to eat, shop, live and go to school. There is a lot of security and money in the real estate field and you can get a piece of it with the right tools.

Aside from the fact that dealing in the real estate market can make you significant money if dealt with properly, there are also other benefits that you might not have taken into consideration. The tax world looks favorably on real estate investing. There are many different deductions that can be made in the real estate world, such as taking care of tenants if you own a rental property, the cost of interest on your mortgage and the possible depreciation of your property also qualify as tax write-offs. There are also many other tax advantages that figure in to buying and owning property that will become apparent during tax season when you have a professional fill out your forms for you.

Owning land is a unique investment, to say the least. Unless something catastrophic happens, like a tsunami or a nuclear meltdown, land almost always appreciates in value. This makes land essentially the safest investment in the world. When you add in the tax benefits that come with owning land, you can begin to see why so many wealthy men choose land as their core investment. Land is also the best possible way to increase your net worth. Since you have an investment that never really goes down in value, it can do wonders for your portfolio.

Another advantage in investing in land and property is that it is extremely stable. Others may lose their shirts when the stock markets of the world flop or when the next internet tech bubble bursts, but owning land and property is very even keeled. If you are after even more stability, you can look for things like housing, which, obviously, is always in need and is almost always going up in need. Commercial properties can tend to be a little more risky since there can be an overwhelming glut of them in some areas that the population has not met the need for, but overall, it is a much more stable investment than stocks.

The only real negative about land ownership is that it is truly a long-term investment. You have to be ready to hold on to a piece of land, sometimes for years to make the desired profit. If you are looking to make a quick buck, then other kinds of investing might be for you.
