Is Real Estate Investment Safe?

Posted by Balaji on November 3, 2020

What is a real estate investment?

Real estate investment is buying a property to own and maintain and to rent out to

generate an income. The property can be a house, apartment, commercial space, or

even shopping center. Any brick and mortar is a real estate and can be transformed

into an investment property. The aim of the investment is to make more money from a

property than its expenses.

Investing in real estate is more than just owning, renting, or selling. It is also about

building value by upgrades, extensions, or inflation on the property.

Why invest in real estate?

Think about every building that stands, is being constructed, or being planned. All of

these add up to an enormous real estate market.

So what does this mean? A never-ending demand from two parties:  individuals and

businesses. The housing demand and competition are eternal, people will always need

a home, a huge incentive for buying an investment property. So, is real estate a safe

investment? Yes! These demands alone can vouch for that.

Investor needs to place their money somewhere that offers them returns constantly,

which is where investing in real estate comes in.

Real estate is a good investment, but is it the right one?

Other than real estate, there are various ways to invest, such as stocks, gold, bonds,

etc. To decide what’s best depends on risk, required capital, and other factors. There

are several advantages that come with investing in real estate.

1) Risk: With real estate, you can manage risk more efficiently than with stocks. To

understand trends and patterns, you can look at how residential and commercial

property investments are performing and at their past performance. Stocks are more

difficult to understand.

However, to a certain degree, an investor can understand the influencers of a real

estate market more easily. For example, location and tenants can be analyzed before

investing and investors can pick the best options to ensure returns.

2) Taxes: There are benefits to having a rental property. The interest on the mortgage,

property taxes, insurance, and depreciation are all tax-deductible. The deductions

depend on rental income but expenses cannot be more than income, which is why it is

so important to have positive cash flow.

3) Required Capital: In real estate, there are strategies to make money without having

to actually spend money, such as wholesaling. Trading is another choice that comes

with real estate because the assets are tangible.  Real estate is also one of the few

investments where, with little to no capital down, you can earn ownership.

Even though investments can be very liquid, real estate brings diversification to the

portfolio of an investor. The more diverse an investment, the less likely investor will get

lost if one type of investment doesn’t perform well.

So, is real estate a good investment?

Yes. Real estate is generally a great choice for investment. It can produce ongoing

passive income and can be a good long-term investment if the price increases over

time. You can even use it as a part of your overall strategy to begin building wealth.

    We bought an apartment in Bangalore recently and Gangadhar made the entire process easy and seamless. Our experience with Gangadhar was outstanding and he took care of all the requirements for the property transfer end to end in a compressed timeframe. Gangadhar was patient, provided good advice and listened to all our requirements. He went above and beyond to help with a variety of other matters as well. I would highly recommend Gangadhar and his team.

    Mr. Balaji is our family acquaintance and is known to us for several years, he is also involved in philanthropic work, It is our good fortune that we entrusted the sale of our ancestral property to Mr. Balaji and his company. Mr. Balaji and his team of trusted lieutenants ensured the process right from selecting the buyer till completion of sale was completed without any hiccups and took care of all the paper work. Balaji and his team were willing to go the extra mile to ensure the sale was complete as per agreement. We would like to commend Balaji and team and hope we will have the opportunity to engage him again in the future. Wishing Balaji and team all success personally and professionally.
