Cross-border real estate investment

Why invest in real estate?

1. Attractive yields

Profitability of real estate is higher than that of other financial instruments (government and corporate bonds, deposits). Meanwhile, profitability of real estate may be comparable or even exceed that of shares.

2. Preservation of capital

Stocks and bonds can completely lose all their value. When it comes to real estate, this can only happen if the building is completely destroyed or the location becomes uninhabitable.

3. Low volatility

Volatility is an indicator that characterises the change in price. Real estate volatility is lower than in other financial instruments, since real estate transactions are conducted on the private market and are less liquid.

4. Income tax Optimisation

Income from bonds and shares is subject to income tax. Real estate allows to deduct depreciation from the tax base, while the market value of the premises does not change.

5. Protection against inflation

Real estate usually follows inflation. Standard rental agreements include annual indexation, which can be expressed as a fixed percentage or be equalled to the consumer price index. When selling apartments, given stable demand, the price will is also rise with inflation.

6. Chance of a price increase

Real estate investments have a potential to increase in value due to possible improvements (renovation, new construction and management optimisation). Property values ​​change during the market cycles. Thus, the time of sale is a key aspect in maximising value for the investor.

7. Cash Flows

Investments in commercial real estate typically imply stable cash inflows through rent, which are distributed through dividends on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis.

8. Using financial leverage

If a bank loan was used to finance the purchase, rental income will go towards covering the debt payments. Rental income will reduce the financial burden, thus, increasing the equity capital that the investor may eventually sell. If debt financing is cheaper than using equity capital, an investor can earn on the difference in the cost of equity and debt capital.
