There are many benefits to investing in real estate, regardless of your financial goals. These benefits include:
As the cornerstone of a well-balanced investment portfolio, diversification helps to offset volatility in any one particular asset class and reduces overall portfolio risk.
Leverage simply means using borrowed capital to enhance the earning potential of an investment. When compared to other investment classes, real estate delivers the greatest opportunity to use the power of leverage. Since real estate is a tangible asset, financing is generally more easily attained, and your potential returns are heightened considerably compared to a non-leveraged investment.
Other People’s Money
One of the hallmarks of real estate investing is the ability to use the rental income you earn each month to pay your mortgage financing – this benefit is unique to real estate investment.
Investing in carefully selected residential real estate lets you combine the benefits of leverage with property value appreciation over time – and what a powerful combination this is. Your property value increases over the long term, resulting in increased equity.
Preferred Tax Treatment
Whether you invest in our real estate investment opportunities inside or outside your RRSP, the growth in value your property experiences is sheltered from tax until you sell the property. There is no limit to the amount of value growth you can shelter when you invest in real estate. As well, when a capital gain is triggered by the sale of a property, you benefit from the capital gains status of this profit.
Long Term Cash Flow
When investing in rental real estate, you will receive regular positive cash flow (providing you make sound investment choices). This will provide you with a sense of assurance and peace of mind that you will be receiving a set amount of income every month. This cash flow strengthens as rental rates increase over time, thereby creating a growing source of secure retirement income.
