Property has always been a good investment. Of course, as with anything, house price changes can get a bad rep if you view them in the wrong way, and it is worth remembering that rises in house prices will only benefit you if you have more than one property or have money tied up in external property other than your home. Any bad press that property investment gets is the struggle for first time buyers to get on the property ladder or the worries of negative equity.
Yet, as an investment, property is generally sound. After all, space to build homes is reducing all the time, driving up both demand and prices in equal measure and meaning that, short of a global cataclysm, investment property will always ultimately offer you a good return.
There are also many ways to invest in property. You can buy to let, and easily work out a rate of return (all you need to do here is work out how much cash you invest and compare this to the amount you are going to get through rental after expenses such as mortgage. The amount you earn each year can then be compared to your initial outlay to show you what your annual percentage return is).
This is the other benefit of property investment it is easy to understand. Unlike bonds and stocks, you can very quickly see what you are going to make and fairly easily judge the potential safety of your property investment.
However, rental is often not the best option. Instead finding specific investment property through dedicated property companies is likely to see you being steered towards much more prime real estate and in turn making a much bigger return and seeing that return far faster.
So if you want the best chance to make the most of the ever-increasing cost of property, simply visit the right property investment company and see what they suggest.
