You’ve heard it thousands of times, investing in Real Estate is always smart. It’s true, but you’ve putting it off time and again because of the challenges and time it takes to invest in finding the right properties. You have to find a property, research it, possible title searches, get an inspection, haggle with owners, work with realtors and more. Isn’t it easier to just watch the stock market and throw some money into a blue-chip company that has high dividends?

One of the issues, investors have these days is the demand for patience. You may have to wait for long-term benefits. Think of a 401k or IRA. You put money into it each year and the real advantage only comes years later. Why can’t you benefit with something in both the short-term and the long-term? That’s where Real Estate comes into play.
Investing in commercial property for example, gives you an opportunity to see an immediate return on your investment as tenants pay rent. Along with that, you can hold off on cashing in until values are up, and the right offer is made to get a good return on your investment.  There is the opportunity to diversify, utilize tax deferral options, depreciation and protect yourself against inflation and benefit from long-term capital gains.

Much like your stocks that pay dividends throughout the year, renting does the same. However, you do not have to worry about the property fluctuating day by day like a stock. It’s also important to remember that the government offers more benefits for those who invest in Real Estate because it improves the value of a community with more tax dollars, affordable renting options and new jobs.

For a lot of investors putting money into real estate feels a lot better. With stocks you can’t see or feel them, you just look at a bunch of charts to get an idea how your investment is doing. With real estate, it is tangible, you can physically walk into a property that you’ve purchased and see what your money has bought you, and you can keep your finger on the pulse constantly!
