Real Estate

Why Invest in Real Estate?

Investing in real estate can be one of the smartest decisions you can make with your money. However, the opposite is also true. When it comes to international property purchases, there is no substitute for an abundance of information and knowing the full scope of what you’re getting yourself into.

Here are some of the reasons you should consider buying property:

Real estate is key to any diversified investment portfolio. Further, whatever real estate assets you invest in should be diversified, as well, including and especially by country.

Real estate diversification comes in three parts—the location of the property (Referring to market, not street address), the currency the property is valued in, and the property type.

Physical Property

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.

Rental Income

Buying an overseas rental property can be one of the best investments you make today. It holds a number of advantages over more traditional investments. Owning an overseas rental property diversifies your international footprint and gives you a foothold in another country. In many cases it also makes you eligible for residency in that country. An overseas property can give you a gateway into that country’s banking system, further diversifying your international footprint. What’s more, it can be your future residence, a vacation home, or your retirement home one day.

Income properties have financed the lifestyle of many an expat and provided a retirement income to many overseas retirees. Income properties are the best performers in today’s market.

Markets go up and down, so investors buying into pre-construction deals or betting on capital appreciation can be disappointed if things don’t work out the way they predicted. But an income property can stabilize your investment by producing an income irrespective of current market prices.
