Cross-border real estate investment

Why invest in real estate?

1. Attractive yields

Real estate investment provides higher returns than any other financial instruments (government and corporate bonds, deposits). Yields obtained can be comparable or even exceed those of corporate stock/company shares.

2. Preservation of capital

Real estate will only lose its value in very extreme cases such as: a building becoming completely derelict or an area becoming uninhabitable.

3. Low volatility

Real estate is less volatile than any other financial instruments. This is due to real estate transactions being conducted on the private markets and being 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 can equal the consumer price index. When selling real estate, the price will is also rise with inflation (given stable demand).

6. Value increase potential

The value of a real estate investment can increase following various improvement work (renovation, new construction and management optimisation). Deciding on the right time to sell a property is also an important factor to maximising profits.

7. Cash Flow

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

8. Using financial leverage

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