THE LOVE THAT CAN BE FLEXIBLE
There’s something to love about investing in property for everyone, no matter what your investment strategy may be. Whether you plan on owning your property for years, flipping property for a quick sale, renting it out, or investing in an REIT, you’ll be adding a level of diversification that will bolster your portfolio and keep your earnings steadier over time. What is not to love about this versatility?
THE LOVE THAT STANDS ALONE
Real estate differs from other types of investments in that it usually is not tied to any major assets. This means that the wild ups and downs of a volatile economy are less likely to affect the value of your property, giving you stability in uncertain times. Plus, with each payment, you are building your net worth through the equity on your property.
THE LOVE THAT YOU CAN BUILD WITH TIME
Building equity increases your ability to buy even more properties. This gives you yet another advantage over investing solely in stocks. Buying a huge amount of shares in a company doesn’t give you any leverage to buy shares in a different company, but with real estate you can increase your earnings exponentially by leveraging your existing assets. What’s more, it only takes a fraction of the property’s cost in the form of a down payment to get access to 100% of the property, meaning you can start capitalizing on your investment before you’ve even paid it off in full.
IN CONCLUSION: REAL ESTATE INVESTMENTS CAN WIN YOUR HEART
To make a long story short, investing in real estate can diversify your portfolio, give you leverage to buy more assets, and increase your net worth. Of course, every investment has its risks, and every investment strategy is different, so talk with your financial advisor to figure out what works best for you.
Whether you’re looking for a passionate fling or a committed relationship, it might be time to ask a piece of property that all-important question: “will you be mine?”

Appreciate that Appreciation!
All markets fluctuate based on external factors such as supply and demand. Your gold is worth one sum now, but in a few months might be worth much less or much more. It’s a little tricky to anticipate and keep track of where that value is going.
The real estate market comes in cycles, too. A key factor in real estate as an investment, however, is that real estate tends towards gaining value, or appreciating, over time. The supply of property doesn’t really change too much, but the demand keeps growing because people always need a roof over their heads.
The thing about this kind of market is that it ebbs and flows like tides. Sometimes, the appreciation that takes place is strong and fast, and other times, it’s gentler and slower. You have to have the ability to be patient.
An option that’s going to be a good, safe idea in the long run would involve buying property and waiting to resell or refinance it. The value will come, it just takes time. You might be able to sell your property at 200% of the price you bought it for, but that kind of thing is typically going to take some years to get in motion.
That’s alright! As long as you have that property, you can be making money through the numerous other profit centers of real estate, like cash flow. The trick with appreciation is that you need to be patient, and good things will come to you.
Another awesome factor in this is that, when you buy a property, you generally finance it through a bank, which can cover 75-90% of the cost of the real estate. So, when you buy a property worth 400,000, you might only put down 100,000 for the down payment (and closing costs, etc.) with the bank covering the rest. Let’s say that that property then appreciates by 10%. It gains 40,000 in value- that’s a 10% return on the total previous value of the property.
But it’s a 40% return on the 100,000 you put in. Nifty, yeah? Leverage and appreciation work together in wonderful ways.
But you’ll need to get started if you want to see the full effects. Since these things have such a timeframe, starting as soon as possible is key to watching your net worth grow and grow.
Real estate is a fantastic investment for the short and the long term. You can make money every step of the way. You just need to get started!

WHY INVEST IN REAL ESTATE?
If the real estate you own increases in value over time, you can sell it for a solid profit. Remember, though: Appreciation isn’t guaranteed. You’ll need to invest in the right property to see those big returns.
