Advantages of Investing in Property
Property is now the wise investors weapon of choice. No other investment allows you to purchase with other people's money (The Bank) and then pay this back with other people's money (the rental income from tenants). If you own property you can release equity against this, although there is no law that states that your property will increase in value year on year it is accepted that a well maintained property in a reasonable area will appreciate in value.
- 50% of individuals mentioned on The Times Rich List made their money through investing in property.
- A property worth just €4000 30 years ago would be today worth around €225,000.
- Equities or Stocks can be volatile, as with the .com crash. Property however is historically stable.
- It is well documented that on average the value of a property doubles every 7 years.
According to figures from FPD Savills Research, the total net return (including capital appreciation) on prime central London property was 18.6% last year. In the UK, the total net return was 16.3% and - a strong performance given that equities showed a loss last year.
The benefit with buying specifically for Investment is that you can remove the emotion from the purchase and look at the property as an investment vehicle, whether this means and selling at a substantial profit prior to completion carrying no redemption penalty or take the "buy to let" situation and generate a good reliable rental income, incorporating substantial capital appreciation.
