"Property as an investment generally tends to be a less volatile market place when compared with stocks and shares, however it can be difficult to begin your journey in property for a number of reasons such as the large initial capital requirements of investing, management of the asset and most importantly your time.
We are constantly building our property portfolio and want to make you one of our preferred investors on our continued journey of success."
Rental income and an increase in the capital value (capital gains) of an asset can be defined as a passive income. The majority of people today only have one source of income which is earned income whereby you trade your time for money. Earned income is an inherently flawed system that lures you into a false sense of security and you are limited in your maximum earning potential purely because your time is finite. Passive income is not bound in the same way earned income is. We believe you need to find a way to earn money while you sleep or you will work until you die, property investing can help you to achieve this.
Globally we know that the wealthiest of the wealthy invest in property as a means of growing or protecting their financial wealth. This too is true in Ireland but of the upmost importance is to have a strategy to enable you to do so. Here we have a proven and structured approach that will give you the best possible opportunity in investing in property.
In Ireland today the majority of people aged from 20 to their mid-30's are renters. This is due to a whole host of reasons such as lack of supply, ability to access credit, large initial deposits and the list goes on, but this provides the professional property investor with an opportunity to capitalize on the high demand in that it makes your investment in rental properties more secure.
In Ireland today we have an average life expectancy of 82 years old, with advances in science and technology this number is ever increasing. If we consider the current retirement age in Ireland is 66 this means we have 16 years to relax from a lifetime of work, enjoy time with your family, take more holidays and the to do list goes on, but you must also support yourself during these years and a government only pension can almost guarantee a decrease in your quality of life that your used to. A lot of people will also have their company pension which is a good start in maintaining your expected quality of life but why not surpass your expected quality of life with a property portfolio giving you that passive income.
If you can buy right, employ the right strategies, in an area that has future potential or is undergoing regeneration and you have the ability to hold for the long term then you can receive massive benefits in the form of capital gains. Capital gains is a great method of boosting your personal retirement fund while having benefited through the years from a steady flow of rental income.
In the long run, real estate property prices tend to go along with inflation. This means that you can raise the rent on your investment property as inflation increases. It also means that the value of your rental property will go up enough to cover for inflation. Meanwhile, your mortgage payments will remain the same in nominal value, So, they will actually decrease in real terms with inflation. This is not necessarily true for stocks. Equity investments do not follow inflation as directly as real estate prices do.
If your ambition is to go full time in property both property flipping and deal trading are two great methods of generating additional income for the business and can help you in achieving large short term gains to ensure your business thrives.
The most important of the eight key reasons to invest in property in my opinion is not only the financial freedom that it can afford you but the freedom to answer to no one but yourself, it gives you more time to be with your loved ones, it will give you security and help you to build a legacy for the ones you love.
