Many own investment properties and have used this type of investment over the years to generate wealth and help create a comfortable lifestyle in retirement. With costs, such as land tax rising recently along with changes to the rental tenancies act, many are asking is it the right investment for them. So this is why an investment property is a smart financial move:


Rental Income

One of the primary reasons to own an investment property is to generate rental income. Rental income can provide a steady stream of passive income that can help to supplement or replace traditional employment income. Always make sure that you don’t fall into some pitfalls and things should go smoothly. 


Conrol over the investment

Unlike stocks or precious metals, real estate provides investors with more control over their investment, including the ability to make improvements and increase the property’s value. This means that investors can take an active role in managing their investment.


Capital Appreciation

Over time, the value of the investment property may appreciate, meaning that it can be sold for a higher price than what was originally paid for it. This can result in a profit for the investor.


Tax Benefits

There are several tax benefits associated with owning an investment property, including deductions for mortgage interest, property taxes, and maintenance expenses. These deductions can help to lower the investor’s overall income tax bill.



Owning an investment property can be a good way to diversify one’s investment portfolio, spreading risk across different asset classes and reducing the impact of market fluctuations.


Inflation Hedge

Real estate is often considered an inflation hedge, as rental income and property values tend to increase with inflation. This means that owning an investment property can help to protect against the effects of inflation on one’s investment portfolio.


Overall, owning an investment property can be a good way to generate income, build wealth, and diversify one’s investment portfolio. However, it’s important to carefully consider the risks and potential costs associated with owning and managing a property before making a decision to invest.
