Why I believe in real estate as an investment

🏡✨I want you to see what I get to witness every single day — that real estate is one of the greatest investments you can make for a happy and secure financial future.

Let me share 3+ reasons why.👇

1) Real estate appreciates.

Here’s the best part: There’s this concept known as 'depreciation.'

Depreciation is a tax deduction that allows real estate investors to deduct a portion of the property's cost as an expense. The deduction accounts for wear and tear and deterioration over time.

So while the property value goes up, you get tax perks that allow you to deduct expenses from your taxable income, reducing your tax burden. It's a win-win!

2) Real estate offers incredible financing opportunities.

There's nothing else like it — the government is eager to loan you a substantial portion of the price of a home, typically 95% to 97% of the purchase price.

This means you can invest in real estate with a relatively small down payment, giving you more financial flexibility to pursue other investment opportunities.

3) Real estate returns are consistent.

In spite of stocks' faster, flashier returns, real estate has historically produced more consistent and less volatile returns. If you’re looking for passive income and have time to invest for the long term, real estate shouldn't be overlooked.

Further, investing in real estate:

• Generates cash flow

• Protects against inflation

• Diversifies your portfolio

• Helps build wealth

I'm curious. Do you own real estate as an investment? What do you love about it? Share below — I’d love to hear what you think!🤔
