Taking advantage of expertise in property investments
The truth about property investments vs. stock market portfolios is that property investments knock the spots off the stock market. If you’d bought an average-value house 90 years ago, your capital growth today would be around 47,000%. The same investment in shares would have grown by just 11,000%.
When you invest in property:
- The rental yield is higher than the dividend yield on shares;
- You can take advantage of the benefits of gearing in property investment and make a money profit you don’t have; and
- You can benefit from tax deductibles to reduce your income tax liability.
If you’re like most people, you won’t know where to look for investment opportunities. So you’ll go to a financial advisor, who will sell you an investment on the stock market. You’ll miss out on the benefits of investing in buy-to-let property because a financial advisor isn’t allowed to advise on investing in property that is directly held.
In this post I’m going to look at how working with a property investment company can get you the advantages that investors with property benefit from every day.
