Here are a few of the challenges investors face on their own:

  • How to learn all the in’s and out’s of investing in properties.
  • Finding the right market to invest in (and the right time to invest).
  • Choosing right investing strategy and the appropriate kinds of properties to buy.
  • Creating a solid, experienced and effective real estate POWER TEAM.
  • Managing the acquisition process, handling property value enhancement, and planning a profitable exit are some of the challenges investors face independently. Mastering property management, including tenant acquisition and relationship management, is also crucial in this journey.

Fortunately for our joint venture partners, we have taken the time to become experts, and our team takes care of all these aspects. This allows us to provide a handsfree investments for them.

Gold vs Real Estate: Why Gold’s Depreciation and Poor Sustainability Outlooks Puts It At a Major Disadvantage

With rising inflation rates and unprecedented costs of living, choosing the right investment strategy is paramount. Thanks to its wide availability and flashy draw, many new investors look to gold as a viable investment option. Unfortunately, due to its impracticality, poor long-term returns, and declining demand from new generations, most seasoned investors advise to steer clear of gold. Here is what you need to know:

Gold Depreciation Over Time 

Turbulent economic conditions allow investors to reflect on their current investment portfolio. Out with the (g)old, and in with the new! 

Rare earth metals and crop production have shown their hand in the history of investment. While generations ago it was a coveted resource, over time, gold has lost its draw to newer investment options. Emerging generations simply do not value it as readily as do older generations.

In contrast, real estate is a tried and true method with diverse options for property investment. From residential rentals, to industrial real estate, and even vacant land, real estate is a trusted resource for current and emerging market trends. 

Investors also have to consider the instability and decrease in value of other precious metals and goods. A 2019 study of metal sector deals revealed that coal was actually the primary revenue contender of global mining, with gold coming in second to last. 

This decline in demand may partially be attributed to an eco-friendly global mentality. Mining has taken its toll on the environment as a whole, leaving a hole in the pockets of the future stability of an investment in rare earth metals. 

Erosion, deforestation, and excessive water use all make gold an unsustainable investment choice for the environment. This makes sense when you consider that many have rallied for the preservation of earth’s most precious resources: Earth itself. 

Looking to the Future 

With the onset of work-from-home measures and rampant pandemic precautions, space is a necessary resource for buyers. Moira Taylor, co-owner and CEO of Taylor Made Realty in Atlanta suggests, “Investors should consider the suburbs of major metropolitan areas, as they’re an ideal investment and have seen an increase in buyer demand in places like Atlanta, New Jersey, San Francisco and other major city suburbs.” Investors are taking advantage of these changing trends, and focusing instead on the buying potential of modern real estate. 

As buyer choices change, so too do investment decisions. Whether you’re looking to invest in vacation rentals or you’d like to construct from the ground up, there’s a real estate opportunity for you.

BLOG #13: Why Real Estate Wins for Stability

Everybody knows the saying, “To make money, you got to spend money.”  The question is where do I spend it then? The most common choices are also opposites: cryptocurrency and real estate. One represents the possible future while the other stands in for the long past—but is the future truly the future? In this article, we will discuss both to determine which one gets you the most bang for your buck.

Cryptocurrency

Let’s start with demystifying cryptocurrency. After all, “cryptic” is part of its name. Simply put, cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin, is a totally digital alternative to regular currency, used to exchange for goods and services. They are dollar bills and coins that exist “in the cloud.” 

With that out of the way, why are people so interested in cryptocurrency? One, it has little upfront cost to enter into the market. An investment of just $100 will get you started. Two, there is little maintenance: you buy it and let it do its thing. Finally, it is transparent. All transactions are logged and available for the public to see. 

While this sounds promising on the surface, cryptocurrency comes with some significant risks. Most notably, it is not regulated by any governments. This seems like it could be an advantage, but it actually means that it is incredibly volatile.

 In 2017, Bitcoin’s value went from $1,000 to over $19,000 and then down to $7,000 in a matter of months according to Business Insider. Cryptocurrency also has security risks. Based entirely online, it can be hacked. Wired reported one such incident when a whopping $460 million was stolen. 

Real Estate

Compared to cryptocurrency, real estate is slightly more self-explanatory. Buying real estate may be costly upfront; you may have to spring several thousand just to close the sale. Not to mention, you must take into account utilities and repairs. 

With that said, these risks can be easy to combat. For one, real estate is versatile. You can build a business on it, rent out the space for private or commercial use, or fix it up and sell it for a profit. All of those provide a consistent cash flow, another great advantage. Lastly, owning real estate comes with tax breaks, which help mitigate things such as deprecation, insurance, repairs, and other potential surprises.

Final Verdict

After looking at both cryptocurrency and real estate, you may still be left wondering which one comes out on top. This is a good thing to consider when your own money is on the line.

Nonetheless, it is hard to deny the versatile appeal of real estate. The S&P 500 Real Estate Index reported a 29% increase on returns in 2020. Finally, its stability really wins it out. Cryptocurrency can have meteoric highs, but can then come crashing down, leaving you with nothing. Real estate has highs and lows as well though almost never to the same extent. If you plan on spending money to make some, it is a safer bet to invest it in where it’s “real.”
