Property investments offer investors with more complex investment portfolios a way to hedge risk, maintain a stable asset, and diversify outside of commodities and other financial markets. It’s a tangible asset that you have possession of and one which can grow in value, whether you’re using it personally or using it as a means for recurring revenue.
In a world where value is being created and disappearing in the same day, think cryptocurrencies, real estate is an asset that, barring a catastrophic disaster, will maintain and even grow it’s value for a long time.
Historically, many of the world’s richest people have had real estate to thank for their wealth. That fact alone should be enough to make the case that it’s counter-intuitive to exclude real estate from your investment portfolio.
