“Buy land, they’re not making it anymore.” – Mark Twain

Twain, the famed American writer and humorist knew what he was talking about. People will always need places to live, and there is only so much land to go around. Due to this undeniable fact,  real estate is a timeless way to make a good investment. After all, people were making money off of real estate investments in Twain’s day and still are today.  Because as the years pass, most real estate goes up in value. 

“Real estate is a gold mine for the investor with their sights set on consistent growth,” says Ivel Turner, Senior Executive Vice President of Sales and Client Retention for Oasis Realty Investment Group, a top-rated United States-based real estate investment group. “It’s not for the get rich quick investor,” Turner says. “Savvy investors understand two things, people need a place to stay, and they are willing to pay for it.”

Turner, an expert on today’s real estate market, says that real estate is and has always been an overwhelmingly safe and equitable investment that allows investors to grow their dollars consistently.  

In fact, in addition to the promise that most real estate increases in value over time, real estate is a great way to generate ongoing passive income, which helps to build wealth. 

And according to a recent Gallup Poll, real estate was rated the best long-term investment by those surveyed, ahead of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.  

Investing your funds into real estate is generally far more lucrative than those other forms of investment, according to Oasis’ Turner.  Even if a property you invest in only manages to achieve five percent growth in value, you are still beating inflation over time by more than double. 

And once invested in a property or groups of properties, and those properties begin receiving a positive cash flow from rent or other means, you are making money for doing nothing. You are generating that prized passive income, the method in which many real estate investors build wealth over time. 

One of the main reasons real estate investing is a powerful long-term investment strategy is that real estate is considered a “hard asset,” meaning that you can physically touch it, unlike a stock or bond that only represents a share in a company. Hard assets are unlikely to disappear and are less financially risky overall than stocks. 

One of the best ways for a serious-minded investor to get involved in real estate as an avenue to build wealth is by investing their dollars with a real estate investment group, according to Oasis’ Turner.  A real estate investment group does the hard up-front work for you. Their real estate experts use data and analytics to determine the best real estate investments to make in the best areas. Then, they pool your investments with those of other investors in order to invest in high-return real estate funds across the country. 

You’re then able to generate passive income from the smart real estate investments that the real estate investment group has made. 

And whether 150 years ago, in Mark Twain’s day, or 150 years from now, astute investors were and will be generating wealth through investing in real estate for the long term.

Here’s why real estate investments are less volatile than the stock market

It’s true!

When Americans’ thoughts turn to investing, the stock market or real estate are the first options to come to mind. But which of these two investment opportunities is the safest, or the least volatile for the average investor? 

Well, according to the statistics, real estate outperforms the stock market when it comes to long term investing. 

Let’s take a deeper look.  

First, according to the National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries, real estate investments outperformed stocks and bonds in 17 of the 20 worst quarters between 1990 and 2008. That’s significant. That means real estate won out over stocks in all but three of the 20 worst investment quarters for almost two decades!

And while many American investors place a strong emphasis on stocks, real estate has long been and still is the most favored long term investment of Americans. In fact, some may be surprised to find out that there is more money invested in real estate than in equities in the stock market today.

Of course investing in the stock market has it’s advantages, mainly ease of  access and easy sell-off. But real estate has the all-important advantage of much less volatility over time.  Because while stock prices rise and fall regularly, real estate is historically much more stable.

And when investing in stocks, there is always the chance that you could lose a good portion of your initial investment as part of a market wide panic sell-off that occurs in days or even minutes, particularly when investing in higher-risk companies. Real estate on the other hand, is an investment that generally works in years, and not days or quarters. 

Real estate investors are likely to hold their purchase for from two to ten years, riding out most market downturns and lessening the risks of panic selling.  A smart real estate investor can afford to hold out for the most favorable market in order to get the best selling price. 

Finally, and most importantly, property values rise and fall during market cycles, but they tend to appreciate over time. That’s right, real estate historically appreciates over time. Making it a smart, and stable long-term investment.
