-- Property investments have been increasing exponentially over the past several years, according to Positive Real Estate
. People are jumping into this profitable market because they notice how low mortgage interest rates are. However, people underestimate how useful real estate can be when it comes to retirement. In fact, a majority of Americans do not even think about real estate as they plan their retirement. Property investments have proven to be useful assets when it comes to saving up money for the future.
A recent article
published by Forbes describes how other countries' citizens have learned to accept real estate investment as a vital component to retirement. Property has become an attractive investment for middle-class citizens who are looking for a way to build up a healthy retirement fund. The reason for this is because local stock markets in these countries are often reserved for higher-class citizens. Experts such as Positive Real Estate recommend that more people should conduct research and consider investing in property portfolios.
Property investment in America and abroad provides inflation hedge. This means that citizens who have a small real estate holding in their retirement portfolio have a slight advantage. Real estate holdings act as a hedge against inflation that generates income. This practice is similar to holding bonds, except that real estate investors are protected from commodities investments' inflation-dampening effects.
Property investors use exchange-traded funds (ETF) to own commercial and residential real estate around the world. An example of these kinds of funds is the SPDR Dow Jones Real Estate REIT, which tracks United States-based Real Estate Investment Trusts. Conversely, the SPDR Dow Jones International Real Estate RWX tracks investment trusts abroad. Positive Real Estate mentions how REIT's contain many benefits. The most prominent is that they generate a favorable income stream.
Another appealing factor of real estate investment trusts is that there is less risk involved. When an investor places their money in an exchange-traded fund, they are diversifying their portfolio. They are joining thousands of other investors who are sharing the same investment. There is a variety of options when it comes to REIT's and investors can find the one that best suits their needs.
Positive Real Estate states how simple it can be to get into property investment. Some people are able to do so without ever having to take out a hefty loan. Owning shares of real estate can be very beneficial for retirement savings, and carries low risk thanks to exchange-traded funds.
"Even if you own your own home mortgage," says a Positive Real Estate representative, "you should consider going beyond and investing in other property. It can help you significantly when it comes to retirement savings. Exchange-traded funds and REIT's have made it incredibly easy for the average American to safely delve into real estate."
Positive Real Estate recommends that investors consider taking a class or workshop to help them with their property investing endeavors.
