If you’ve got spare money that you’d like to do something sensible with, it can be tricky to know the best place to put it. You could save it, even though interest rates are low, or take a gamble and invest it…
The benefits of investing in property are numerous. With well-chosen assets, investors can enjoy predictable cash flow, excellent returns, tax advantages, and financial freedom—and it’s possible to leverage property to build even more wealth and security.
We truly believe that property investment is the best way of creating financial security and independence How? Well, here are 6 great reasons:
📈 Stable returns throughout the year
It gives stable, consistent returns. There are no massive highs, but also no massive lows – it’s just consistent returns over time.
💰 Double returns – rental cash flow + capital growth over time
You get rental cash flow every month, which gives you an additional income stream. And as well as that, you can also enjoy capital growth as the years progress, which means that value of your property goes up over time. Why? Well, to put it simply, the demand for housing is greater than the supply available.
🔑 A tangible asset we can touch and feel
A tangible asset exists outside of an account balance, financial statement or exchange market. It is a physical asset that you can actually touch and feel. And as a result, it’s unlikely to go down to zero, unlike the stocks and shares market. Property investments tend to have little positive correlation with the stock and bond markets and an investment in tangible assets could reduce your exposure to overall market risk in a way that most intangible assets such as stocks and shares cannot.
🔒 An inflation-proof investment
When it comes to property, the industry is essentially inflation proof, for the investor. Housing prices over the last 120 years have remained steadily in line with inflation, so investors never feel the hit of a rise in inflation costs. One of the major reasons for this match in pace is that housing is, essentially, a primary human need. Regardless of cost, housing will always be required. What this means is that ultimately you are growing your wealth in real terms over time.
🏡 Housing is a basic necessity
Property is not going out of fashion any time soon. Believe it or not, people will always need somewhere to live.
🤑 You can leverage your money with a BTL mortgage
In no other market, can you go to the bank and say, “Hey, I want to borrow £75,000 because I want to buy a £100,000 investment.” And what that means is you can boost your returns especially when interest rates are ridiculously low.
These reasons help us to understand why property is the investment of choice for many people around the country.
