40 Financial Experts Reveal If Investing In Real Estate Is Worth It
Investing in real estate is generally considered a safe type of investment; cryptocurrency, stocks, or bonds can lose their value overnight.
When you buy a property, even if the prices drop due to a financial crisis, people still need a place to live. Plus, renting is a good way of earning an income from the additional home or land that you own.
You can also make efforts to increase the real-estate value of your home, the process of which is an investment in itself; one way to really bump the value of your home in the real estate market is to increase your home’s insulation . Waiting around for a return on investment won’t seem too bad when you have the added benefit of increased comfort levels, low energy costs, and improved soundproofing.
Still, things are never as simple as they seem. There are lots of factors that you must take into consideration when you are investing in real estate. Most people can not afford to buy a property due to the large deposits that are needed to secure a mortgage, and here is where things become more complicated.
Depending on your income, the type of financing you are going to receive, and your monetisation strategy, buying a property could be a great investment, or not.
Also, due to the recent pandemic, the increasing inflation, and the war in Europe (which may or may not affect you depending on your location), you should be aware of the trends in the real estate market.
To clarify all these, we reached out to 40 financial experts and realtors and asked them the following question:

“Real estate in the current and in most climates is a very safe investment. In fact, it’s one of the safest anyone could make.
We live in a strong and growing country. Most of the world is envious of the United States and a lot of people want to live here.
All of this as well as our existing population growth supports increasing real estate values if you look at the real estate over a 10 or 20 or 30-year period. I believe it’s one of the safest investments you can make and should buy as much of it as you can.
Those who are looking at a current situation or a short-term rise in interest rates are often fooled into thinking that real estate will not hold its value but time has proven them to be wrong at every turn. In fact, I would challenge someone to point to a safer investment that has increased over time.” -H. Jack Miller
