Real Estate or Stocks?
Tuesday Nov 03rd, 2020
I recieve many messages from previous clients or potentail ones asking some advices regarding : Which is better investment; Real Estate or Stocks.
It wasn't easy to find a simple answer, yet here are some ideas:
First of all, by buying stocks you -acutally- buy a little piece of this or that company , it doesn't take much time or money to buy them. on the other hand, when you buy real estate, you buy physical land or a property, most of the investors take some easy ways like renting out to collect rents. Others prefer renovation then flipping it . For those who collect rent, they have full confidence in the appreciation; since the property vaule will go up!
Second: When you buy a property you have an asset that can be leveraged , it's not the case with stocks.
Third : Real Estate needs a lot of research with the help of a Realtor who's a good experience in investment, also if you're a flipper make sure that you've studied the costs. Stock market is so risky such as; market problems, economy, inflation, price fluctuations and so on.. You may loose them all if not prudent.
Fourth: What are the Pros of Real Estate:
- Great Income
- Tax adventages.
- Hedged, in case of inflation.
Cons of Real Estate:
- A lot of works
- Transaction costs
Bottom line: To choose betweent these two kind of investments is a personal choice depends what you really want, but bear in mind that Real Estate Investment is the first choice to the majority of people for the reasons described above.
