by Michael Hamrac, MBA, MRP, GRI 07/02/2019

There are so many reasons people invest in properties, either for tax deductibles or to earn more income. Even though there are a lot of investment opportunities, investing in real estate offers many benefits making it a popular choice for both old and young people.

  1. Certainty of Income. The income you receive from your properties is certain. You get regular rental payments from your tenants depending on the agreed duration. If the property is in a good location, that means more juice cause its value will appreciate and generate more income.
  2. Stability. According to numerous investors, the property market is very stable compared to other investment markets out there. A lot of investments may get depreciated due to bad news, poor management and a lot of other issues. Investment properties are bound by a long-term renters' contract that allows you to receive guaranteed income for a while.
  3. Escaping Tax. Another unique advantage of owning an investment property is tax incentives. You can save a lot on your taxes and get many benefits when you buy a home as an investment property.
  4. Securing Bank Loan. With an investment property in your name, obtaining a bank loan no longer becomes a hassle. You can use the existing equity in the property to either secure a loan or purchase another investment property without having to sweat.
  5. Attractive Portfolio. For most investors, investment properties beef up their portfolio or financial statement. It is like building a reputable profile in the world of business. With an attractive portfolio that entails numerous investments in properties, potential investors or angels won’t hesitate whenever a need to invest comes.
  6. Inflation. Inflation is a word that many dread to hear. However, you don't have to shiver if you own a rental property or investment. Investment works as a hedge to inflation, in the sense that you can increase rental fee without any hurdle. The value of the property also appreciates at this time, and if it is sold, you will make a ridiculous amount of money in return. 

The advantages of owning an investment property are countless, making it a route to financial freedom and fulfillment. Investing in properties isn’t rocket science. Anyone can do just that provided there is adequate capital. Speak to a real estate agent today to discuss your options.
