Investment property is real estate property that has been purchased with the intention of earning a return on the investment, this is through either rental income, future resale or both. This can be a long-term project or a short-term investment, with many buyers weighing up the pros and cons of commercial and residential use to determine the highest return.

When considering investing in properties there is a lot to consider, so here are just a few aspects which highlight the benefits of investment;

Control

From the minute you buy a property you have full control. It is therefore now in your hands to decide which type of investment property to buy, from single-family homes to a multi-family homes the choice is yours. Property investors also get to determine how much to charge for rent, who to rent the investment out to and when they want to sell the property.

Cash Flow

Money is the main driving factor for every investor, which is why the investment has to give a return on investment (ROI) which you can either save or re-invest. Cash flow is an attractive feature of investing, and it highlights a successful property investment. The cash flow will cover the investors mortgage, property taxes and operational costs which results in a higher ROI.

Anticipated Future Growth in Value

To many investors, the idea of buying a property, collecting the income and eventually selling it at a higher rate than originally purchased for, is a key driver towards investing in property. Buying an investment opportunity at the right time could prove highly lucrative in the long term, particularly in a rising property market. Investors must not lose sight on their tax implications when selling their investment or looking to re-invest into another opportunity.
