But in this present day, investing in real estate is not worth as there are no much takers. It remains as a dead property with good value in the books and records only.
No life without Sun
Real estate was very good ( good appreciation ) until the slow down hit many cities, currently its good if the location of the property is perfect in terms of amenities and future development. One has to be careful about squatters and the land mafia.
Most of us do not have a formal financial planner or an impartial advise from such experts. We all follow what our father/brother did, what our friends do, or what the known bank employee or insurance agent says.Most of our investments are not balanced well, this along with our bias towards land makes real estate still popular.
Real estate investments are comparatively risk free. The value of your building is decreasing but UDS is appreciating. Here, catch is the UDS.
So, check the UDS value before buying a house.
For stock market investment, you need to use your brain and time.
Investing in real estate property is always safe as well as it's value is increasing.
Other investments like mutual funds,bonds,share market,etc are subject to market risks.
Therefore everyone invests more in real estate property.
