Future preparedness for when you finally want to settle down


Today, developing a career and traveling is probably on top of the priority list of many individuals, but somewhere along that long list of lifetime goals is being able to settle down into a good and secure home. Goals like this are not something that can be done in just a day—it requires extensive preparation that is years in the making. Given that, investing in residential real estate today is definitely a good decision and a great long-term investment. The real estate market currently offers low interest rates. As the market is always fluctuating and unpredictable, there is no certainty that rates will remain low for many years to come. And so, to be prepared for the future, having a RFO house and lot or condo unit is the best way to go. There is nothing more relieving than knowing that your future is already secured and you have nothing to worry about when the time comes that you can no longer put your nose to the grindstone, as the saying goes.

So start contacting your real estate agent now to reserve your residential real estate investment for the future.

Homeowners has higher net worth than renters

Recent studies and surveys have shown that home ownership builds better financial security, with homeowners’ net worth continuing to grow while renters tend to either be steady or become lower than that of homeowners’. Due to this, it is safe to say that residential homes are proven to be one of the most reliable forms of investment. It is also proven to have less risks as it is a more stable industry and even if many years pass, the property would still be valued higher than it was initially.

Residential real estate investment can serve as an additional source of income 


When homeowners are away or will not be utilizing their residential property for quite some time, they can rent it out or put it up in the market as an Airbnb. This gives them an easy additional source of income to keep their money running while also being able to maintain the home instead of leaving it unoccupied and collecting dust. Along with that, there may be instances when you have to move places and you cannot hold onto your property any longer as the possibility of coming back is low or there is none at all. As such, another way to gain a better return on investment is to sell the property when home prices increase. There will always be customers or people who are in need of a place to rent in the market, especially when your property is located in a hot spot or in a district hub like the Metro. So it is ensured that your money will keep running.

The best option for novice investors rather than commercial real estate investments

Obtaining residential real estate is much simpler as compared to commercial properties. Although it has lower annual return, it requires little capital to begin with. For this reason, investing in a residential property is a better option for first-time investors. As you learn the sales and rental market, you can slowly build up your assets and make more investments. Aside from that, residential is a safer option as everyone needs a place to live, but not everyone needs their own commercial space. As previously mentioned, there will always be people looking for homes to live in regardless of whether the market is good or bad, while businesses or commercial tenants can easily move from one place to another. For that matter, you can find plenty of opportunities to turn your residential home into an investment vehicle than look for long-time renters who will occupy your commercial property.
