If you’re wondering if investing in global real estate is right for you, we’ve compiled the three top reasons why we believe investing in real estate should be a solution to consider in your investment strategy.

1. Earn Passive Income for Life, Increase Your Cash Flow, and Wealth Creation

The number one reason to invest in global real estate is to generate a passive income so you can enjoy more of the things you want, allowing your investments to ‘work for you while you sleep’.

How can you do this? One of the newest ways to invest in global real estate is Collaborative Smart Investment™, whereby you can join others to invest in either a commercial or residential real estate with lower investment minimums.

Depending on which platform you use, you can invest from as little as $1,000 or R1,000 and be a part owner in global real estate without having to first incur costs to establish an investment structure yourself.

2. A Diverse Investment Portfolio Leads to Increased Stability

Investors strive to reduce the overall risk of their portfolio through allocating their funds to various types of assets and securities. The fundamental component of investment risk reduction is asset class diversification i.e. ‘not putting all your eggs in one basket’.

This variation of assets helps to ensure that a portion of your investment portfolio is always performing well and increasing the overall value of your portfolio at any given point in a fluctuating economic cycle.

The “20% rule” states that an investor should have a minimum of 20% of their portfolio invested in alternatives like commercial real estate.

3. “Buy land, they’re not making any more.’’ – Mark Twain

Real estate is a hard asset, so it provides intrinsic value through its use as a home, office, factory, hospital etc. Real estate is also scarce as there is only so much land in each area. As cities grow, demand for real estate increases, while geography limits supply. Therefore, real estate assets have historically appreciated in value over time.
