Why Real Estate Investment Makes So Much Sense

posted by Chris Valentine

If you are looking at ways in which you can put your money to work, investing in real estate is without question the smartest place to put your money in terms of making a profit. There is a reason why individuals make so much money from real estate, and highly successful companies like the Terra Group continue to make staggering profits from real estate development, and that is that there is money to be made in this sector.

If you ask anyone where you should invest your hard earned cash, in order to make a profit, most people will tell you that bricks and mortar is the way forward, and here is why.


If you were to compare investing in real estate with investing in areas such as stocks and shares, futures or start-ups, you will see that in terms of safety in your investment, real estate will always win. Whilst the real estate market does of course move up and down, it is nowhere near as erratic or unstable as some of the other areas of investment which you could consider. On that note, should a stock price crash, you never have a guarantee that the price will ever rise again, depending on what the stock is, wit her estate however, you can almost guarantee that the prices will at least rise again, even if not to the same level as before. Real estate offers you  a far safer bet than the volatility of other investments.

Supply and Demand

For at least the last 50 years, the demand for housing has far outstripped supply, and in spite of mounting pressure on many governments around the world to build more affordable housing, it is still not happening. What this means for you is that if you are smart interns of the types of properties that you invest in, you should never have a problem either renting them out, or selling them should you so wish. Supply has never outstripped demand in this sector, and there is no signs that this will change any time soon.

Profit Options

Investing in property gives you a few different options to earn, another attribute which sets this type of investment apart from the rest. Some go into real estate to buy cheap, get the property some TLC and then flip it quickly for a small profit, this is a great way to make fast cash although you will need to know what you are doing. Another option is to buy the property and look to rent it out, giving you a monthly income stream, and the chance to buy more properties to rent out. Finally, you can buy properties which you believe will appreciate, you can rent out the property as the market rises, and then sell it when it is highly valued. There are many ways in which you can turn property into a great earner for you, whichever option you chose.
