Why Investing on a Property is a Good Financial Decision

How Supermarkets Make You Buy

Even in the wake of the Great Recession, the real estate market remains one of the absolute best investments that a savvy investor can make with his or her expendable income.

Although the news and the paid talking heads were full of (and are still full of) information about how the price of housing is down from their 1990s – turn of the century highs, the savvy investor knows that these prices were inflated in the first place. Real estate can be off from the highs of the housing bubble and still remain a fully justifiable, completely profitable investment.

As a matter of fact, the Great Recession may have actually improved the profitability of real estate over the long term. As recessions historically tend to consolidate resources, anyone with cash on hand to purchase properties stands to make a great deal for themselves when the economy returns to normal and the middle class is set to begin purchasing real estate again (because they will have to purchase it from you).

There are many reasons aside from the short-term financial gains for the savvy investor to choose real estate. Some of these reasons will be detailed below.

One – Real estate retains its value in terms of utility.

Even if the real estate market fluctuates in the short term, assuming that you do not fall far behind on your mortgage payments, your real estate is still good in terms of rental income or just having a place to stay. People never talk about the utility value of an asset and how it adds to the comfort level of an investor, allowing him or her to make better decisions on other investments.

Two – Real estate will become more valuable as the population of the world increases.

The population of the world is expected to add more than 2 billion people in the next 50 years. Real estate as a generational wealth gathering option becomes a real possibility in this scenario.

The amount of land on the Earth is not increasing. As land becomes more and more needed, the price of real estate will go up because of the basic supply vs. demand Economics 101 argument.

ThreeMortgage loan lenders will become less and less likely to give mortgage loans to people who do not already have a history of successfully purchasing properties.

If you want to have all the credit that you could ever dream of, make sure that you are invested in the real estate market. This opens up lines of credit that people who are not homeowners will never have access to. If you need money, you can take out a line of credit on your real estate directly or use the property as leverage to prove your creditworthiness in an outside line of credit.

Can You Buy Real Estate With No Cash or Credit?


 
Investing in real estate (and no, I don’t mean “home ownership”) is a very viable way to increase your income. However, there are some major obstacles to doing so. One is your credit, and another is finding the money to put down on a loan.

But what if there was a way to purchase real estate with no cash, and no credit check? In this lecture, delivered at the University of Central Florida Real Estate School, Phil Pustejovsky explains how you can do just that. If you are interested in investing in real estate, this is well worth your time.

A Beginner’s Steps for Making Large Investments

 
 

Large Investment

Winning the lottery is a curse in disguise. Many lottery winners go into a spending frenzy, leading them on the path to bankruptcy. Whether you win the lottery, strike business fortune or receive an inheritance, large influxes of cash can build your wealth and then destroy it. Protect your finances and prevent squandering all your assets with the following tips that will help you grow your fortune.

Financial Stabilization

Prior to an investment, stabilize your finances and eliminate debts. Stop ignoring outstanding debts, pay down debts with high interest rates and make sure you have a savings fund to cover you in an emergency. Keep in mind that some investments can’t be quickly retrieved, at least not without a big financial hit. Once you put funds in, you shouldn’t touch them until the investment period is up.

Investment Timeframe

Different investments are ideal for different lengths of time. For example, if you plan to invest your funds for retirement, your approach will be different than for a five-year plan.

Investment periods are broken down into short, medium and long-term approaches. Long-term investing focuses on your retirement years. In this case, you’d consider investing in a Roth IRA, an annuity or another fund that delivers returns during retirement. Medium-term plans include a 10-to-15-year window. A college fund for children or a fund to pay off your mortgage are typical medium-term plans. Short-term is typically five years or less and grow funds for a home down payment, car purchase or major upcoming expenses. Determine the goals of your investment, and then you can identify funds that best serve your financial needs.

Investment Types

Keep in mind you don’t have to commit to a single type of investment. A large sum of money could include a combination of stocks, bonds, IRAs, annuities, and other investment assets. Don’t feel limited to narrowing your options down to specific accounts at this point. Focus on learning about your options and weigh the pros and cons of each.

Professional Consultations

Although you may want to handle your investments on your own, risk is great while managing a large sum of money. Even if you’re determined to make your own investment moves, CNN Money suggests it’s worth your time to sit down with an adviser or asset manager to discuss your situation and vision. As a precaution, CNN mentions “stay away from advisers who are looking to steer you into investment products that pay them high commissions (and hit you up for big fees).” Based on your experience and the feedback you’ve received, decide whether you want to continue with your current plan or enlist the help of an experienced professional.

The Silver Bomb

 
 


 

 
Here’s an new interview with Michael McDonald co-author of the new book ‘The Silver Bomb: Beyond the Return of Metal as Money’. This book is a comprehensive and shocking must-read, especially for folks to whom this information is new – and for folks who feel so beaten up by the Bankster cartel’s paper games that they’re ready to bail on the physical silver story altogether. “$500+ silver IS coming” says Michael, “Million dollar silver is even possible when measured in worthless dollars”.

If you are looking to prepare yourself against an economic collapse, then obviously purchasing precious metals (like silver and gold) is one of the best ways to do so.

But when it comes to purchasing coins, which kind should you get? Should you buy bullion coins, or should you invest in numismatics (collector’s items that are valued above their metal content)? In the following clip, Junius Maltby explains which one is the better choice.
