Real Estate: A Boon In Investment
Posted: Dec 28, 2017
Real estate as a means of investment has much potential in present times. It's a form of investment which never gets retired, because as long as humans live, they would need housing facilities. The real estate market is filled with huge opportunities for outstanding profits, though investing in real-estate goes beyond merely buying and selling houses, neither is it simply having a home. The oldest and most basic method of real-estate investment is using the property as a rental. Here, the landlord has an access to the asset and is as well as payed for owning it. It would in literal terms 'belong' to the landlord.
Nowadays, there are real-estate investment groups as well to make the investment deal hassle free. They deal with every minor-major detail of the rental and get paid as a certain percentage of the monthly rent. This leaves the landlord's hands completely free and owning property much simpler.
Flipping properties is another important and talked about term in real-estate investments, which also helps add value to the undervalued properties and also an increase in demand to the hot properties. Here, investors buy a property, hold it for a certain period of time and then sell it for a much-acquired profit since the price in the real-estate market is rapidly and consistently on a hike, due to higher demands of housing and official facilities of the growing population. Real estate has been a part of the human species from the earliest of civilizations in history.
So, it is quite an acknowledgement to turn it as an investment. It can be used as leverage at any time even in times of perils and for banking loans and rarely is a loss-prone investment. Yet it is always recommended to weigh all sorts of reasons and assertions and be cautious before jumping into the ocean of real estate or for any sort investment for that matter.
Mr. Pankaj Bajaj Eldeco says:
"While people have been writing off real estate as an industry, it is actually on the brink of a revival in India. We believe that after being properly streamlined. It could contribute up to 15% to the GDP in place of the current 7%. India is a young country and the need for housing is huge." Modern India has much scope in real estate investments as the demand for better and bigger spaces never seize to exist.
