Do you know that real estate has been the top investment option even in America – and that it is one of the best investment over other popular investment options. According to a 2016 Gallup Poll, real estate was rated as the best long-term investment.
And the case is same in Pakistan – where the emotional satisfaction of owning your own property is inherently very strong. And the good news is that experts believe that the Pakistan real estate market’s recovery phase may already have begun after having hit rock bottom in the last few quarters.
Below are some major reasons why experts believe that real estate is not only your safest – but also best – long term investment option.
Investing in Real Estate Is The Safest Option Globally
Real estate is considered one of the safest sectors to invest world wide. In Pakistan, it is the second largest employer after agriculture – and is slated to grow at 30% over the next decade. So regardless of temporary setbacks, it’s still the safest investment option – and will continue to grow in the long term.
Risk-Free Investment Compared to Stocks
Compared to real estate, stocks present a cocktail of uncertainty. Trading in stocks and derivatives is a risky game. Being a highly specialized field, it requires excellent skills to make money out of equities and leverage trades.
Anyone Can Invest in Real Estate
No any special skills is required to Invest in real estate – even a first-timer can do it. Not only is it safer, it will also most likely fetch you better returns in the long run – aside from providing you with a solid roof over your head for generations to come.
Be Assured of Regular Rental Income
Owning a home assures you of stable and regular monthly income that will keep increasing over time, along with the capital value of your home. One of the biggest benefits of owning your own home is the regular rental income it can generate for you with almost 100% certainty. Unlike in case of stocks, once you own a home, you’re not at the mercy of volatile market forces capable of diluting your net worth overnight.
