Property is the most safe and stable means of building substantial long term wealth. It is almost impossible to lose 100% of the value of a property whereas it is relatively easy with stock market shares. History has shown that property, as an investment, doubles in value every eight years. Short term fluctuations in property prices are irrelevant and have minimal impact on the investments ability to generate strong returns in the long term.
Leverage, or gearing, is one of the major attractions of investing in property. It is easy to borrow most of a property’s value, via a mortgage, and an investor can then generate a high return on the capital invested with the borrowed money. Initially only small sums of personal investment are required to begin building a property portfolio and so the return on capital through property can be far higher.
Property is a tangible asset you own and control. By furnishing the property, its possible not just to increase the rental income but also to determine the kind of tenant you attract. The tenant will then pay you rent which will ideally cover the cost of the finance, maintenance and management of your property.
As an appreciating asset bought with someone else’s money and maintained by monthly income from your tenant, why wouldn’t you want to invest in property?
By investing in property in many overseas locations you can benefit from reduced taxation in areas including rental income and capital gains. In certain cases taxation can be completely eliminated.
Additionally if you invest in a property in a sought after tourist destination, you can enjoy the added bonus of several weeks of personal use each year.
Off market property is property which can be purchased usually for less than it is currently worth and not available through high street estate agents.
Off market property has always been available, even in the halcyon days at the beginning of the 21st century. If a property is available at a below market value price, potential buyers are often suspicious about the condition or location. This is a fundamental mistake when it comes to property investment.

Building a property portfolio is a long-term commitment which requires a minimum of 10 years to perform well. You can, at times, buy for capital gain but this depends on your risk profile and unless it is done as part of a broad portfolio, it is a high risk investment strategy.
