Why People Invest in Real Estate

We all know how volatile stock values are as they bounce up and down to the hourly news headlines. If your business is a retail store or warehouse, you’ll need to be on the job every day for the next 20 years without taking a vacation. People that invested at the bottom of the cycle in 2010 and 2011 are making a killing today. These investors are putting cash in their personal bank accounts from rents and sales. Others are making new investments by leveraging the appreciated value from these previous investments in 2010 and 2011. The beauty of real estate investing is you can make money no matter where the business cycle is at. Don’t think the only financing option you have is a bank loan requiring a 20 percent down payment. Once you own a property, you have an asset to leverage into additional properties. And there are big tax advantages that come with real estate investing.
