It has long been said that buying a home, investing in bricks and mortar, is one of the best things that people can do. It is the sort of saying that has been repeated so many times over the years that it is often trotted out without people thinking about it. It is fair to say that the property market, and the range of investment opportunities, have changed in recent times. However, even with all of the changes and evolutions in the property and investment markets, there is still a great deal to be said for the long term benefits that come from investing in property.

Stability

You get the impression that many people who advocate buying property aren’t even thinking about the financial return involved with buying a home. There is a sense of stability and security that comes from having a home that you own. Knowing that you have a massive asset in your name is appealing and comforting to many people, and this is definitely something that plays a part in why people want to invest in property.

The idea that once you have finished working and have retired that you have bought your own home is a great comfort and for that reason alone, buying a property is always going to be a good long term investment.

You can get a financial return

While the property market is a variable market like any other, house prices can go up or down, in the long term, the trend is upwards, and this has been the case over a very long period of time. There can be variable factors like the condition of the home or outlier elements in an area which impact on the value of a home over time but on the whole, buying property and maintaining its condition will lead to a return on your investment. Add in the fact that you’ll have a place to stay (or bring in rental income) in the short term, while building towards a long term benefit and it is easy to see why investing in property is a great idea for long term investments.

You have options for property investment

If you like the idea of investing in property but don’t want to tie yourself to one property just in case, you’ll find that investing in a professionally managed property portfolio may be of benefit. The money you invest into the trust stays with the trust until the properties are sold, and the proceeds are then disseminated out amongst the stakeholders and there is also the chance to obtain gains of any properties that had been sold for a capital gain. If you like the idea of investing in property but don’t want to put all of your money into one home, you’ll find that a property trust provides you with an added level of flexibility that may be of benefit.

All investments represent a gamble and there are people who have lost out in the property market. However, when it comes to long term investment strategies, investing in property remains a very good investment strategy.
