REAL ESTATE AS AN INVESTMENT
When we talk about real estate, we mean landed properties, building etc. real estate has so many branches. We may not explain into details the various categories of real estate. But we are going to dwell on the attitude of the rich and the poor in relation to real estate
There are different types of building: Condo, Warehouse, worship centres, Residential, Hospital, Eatery, Banking hall, etc.
When it comes to investment in real estate poor people rent houses at the expense of their investment. They never think of renting low or middle class accommodation, they spend millions of money paying rent year by year. At the end of the day when the rent expires and their job is no longer there, they are left with nothing.
On the other hand, Rich people invest their money in real estate. when you buy a piece of land, after some years the value of that land increases which is called appreciation. Rich people use real estate to save their money. I will explain this.
When you save your money in the bank after some years, that money depreciates in value due to inflation. Take for instance if you save $1000 in the bank this year, this year $1000 is a big money but in the next three years it becomes a small money because of inflation. Somebody will ask what about interest? The rate at which inflation occurs, the amount of interest added cannot meet up. Therefore, in the next three years to come the $1000 becomes a small money.
On the other hand if you invest your money in real estate, since the value of real estate do not depreciate, rather it appreciates, therefore, the value of your money will appreciate with time, even though there is rise in inflation.
Most rich people save money in real estate. These are in form of build and sell or build and let lease.
