Just like a new dress, fashion trends come and go and not all fashion trends are worth following; 80’s perms and acid wash jeans, we are talking about you!
With the current trends of people investing in cryptocurrencies and shares, it is easy to get caught up in the hype, but there are some wonderful and powerful reasons to still consider investing in property as a part of your overall investment portfolio.
At McGrath Real Estate we believe in the power of investing in something that you can touch and feel. Investing in Bricks and Mortar has always been, and will always be a solid investment in your future.
Why? Because investment in Real Estate is generally a more stable option. Whilst property prices go up and down at times, they generally increase at a steady pace over the long term, so if property values drop, they will generally bounce back in time.
It’s a less volatile market than other forms of investment and this gives it a greater sense of stability, but it should be looked at as a longer-term investment strategy.
The other benefit of Bricks and Mortar property is the ability to leverage your asset. The beauty of property is that everybody needs it. People need to buy it, they need to sell it, and others need to rent it.
After all, everybody needs a roof over their heads, right?!
And if you have built enough equity in your property you can borrow against it. This might not be something you need right now, but could be really valuable to you in the future if you want to start a business, build a house, or grow your family.
Investing in Bricks and Mortar will always be a wonderful option. If you are on the fence about making the commitment, get in touch with one of our team to find out more.
