That’s a great question, one that we encounter quite often.
Here’s an interesting fact. Did you know that 90% of the millionaires in the world have made their fortunes by investing in real estate? Ever heard of, oh I don’t know, DONALD TRUMP!? Barbara Corcoran, from Shark Tank, Todd Chrisley, from Chrisley Knows Best, HELLO!
Now let’s talk facts on a more local scale. In Brant County property values have been steadily increasing by 5% per year on average and it’s not showing any signs of slowing down. That means that in 20 years your property will have nearly doubled in price. My parents purchased their home in 1984 for $60,000.00. Their home in 2016 is worth an estimated $360,000.00. You do the math. That is a whopping 600% return on their investment! WOW!!!
By now if you should’ve figured out that we’re talking about a long term investment. Rentals. So let’s lay it out on paper. If you buy a property worth $200,000.00 and put down a $20,0000.00 deposit and put in $30,000 to fix it up, let the tenants pay the mortgage, and in 10 years that property will be worth approximately $326,000.00, in 15 years it will be worth $415,800.00 and in 20 years it will be worth approximately $531,000.00. That’s an over 10x return on your $50,0000.00 investment. I challenge you to find another form of investment with numbers like that.
Investment properties make for a great retirement investment. Investing your money with a financial planner will bring you a nominal profit compared to the numbers that we just looked at.
