Why invest in real estate?

  1. Highly Tangible Asset
    1. Unlike stocks, real estate is backed by brick and mortar. You have a piece of land or property that you can physically touch.
  2. Ability to use leverage
    1. Real estate is one of the few investment avenues that allows you to utilize leverage or bank money. In other words you only need a portion of the property's value to acquire the asset.
    2. Amortization or paying down your loans, allows you to quickly increase your rent yields!
  3. Tax free Cash-flow
    1. Mortgage interest deductions and depreciation allow you to collect cash-flow tax free!
  4. Great long term investment
    1. Despite the recent crash in 2008, real estate has been on a steady incline and has since recovered. Home prices continue to rise across the world.
