You have a “guarantee”
Unlike shares, real estate offers you more of a guarantee that you won’t lose money. Plus, you can cover your property with insurance should something ever happen to it like being burned down.
You have control of your investment
You have the choice of where to buy, when to buy, and when to sell.
Tenants pay your mortgage
The tenants renting your investment property are ultimately paying your mortgage repayments for you.
Property offers predictability
You can easily look 18-24 months into the future and identify the direction of the property market.
You can claim many tax deductable expenses through your investment property. Plus, you don’t have to pay tax on any profits made.
Investment for every budget
Obviously buying in the heart of a major city is not attainable for everyone. However, exploring outer suburbs and regional towns and cities can offer affordable entry points into the market.
Easier to research than stocks and shares
Investing in shares involves a lot of education and research and can often be quite complicated to get your head around. Real estate, however, is much simpler. At it’s very basic, you can jump online and start searching for your next invest property.
