Is Real Estate Still A Good Investment?

    Time Magazine's cover story," The Case Against Homeownership"takes an over-arching look at the state of home ownership in the context of a relatively battered asset class globally. The article raises the larger question of whether all the government subsidies promoting home ownership has been a good use of public funds and whether owning your home is the right finance decision for all households.
    No other financial topic tends to evoke a purely emotional response as real estate. It has become, over the last 10 years, the financial topic du jour in the backyards and dinner tables of the middle class. With real estate appreciation either slowing or continuing to decline, many continue to ask whether real estate is a good investment.
    The problem with this question is two-fold (at the very least). Real estate, as the adage goes, is all about location. To read a headline in a national publication about the real estate market tends to obscure local effects and it becomes folly to use national data to make decisions which are local in nature. For example, the existence of a local school or employer can, and often does, insulate that immediate community from some of the negative effects of a national economic slowdown. Similarly, locations which structurally have high tenant-to-owner ratios (such as New York City or neighborhoods close to large educational institutions) tend to maintain their relative value.
    Thus, the answer to whether real estate is a good investment is not found in the front pages of your paper but by simply looking around you. Is your local school ranked highly, are "average" homes in your community being sold quickly, is the government investing in your community (where the stimulus money is going, other than the absolutely necessary repairs, is a good barometer of whether the bureaucrats think your community is expanding and where the politicians need to build or maintain political capital)?

    Yes real estate is a very good investment as your fund always multiplies in real estate. I invested in real estate a year back and today the value of property is almost double and hence real estate investment is always profitable from investment point of view.

    You may select to live in the exact property asset that you have purchased but it will perhaps be with the goal of having it marketed after a certain time frame to boost your capital. While some individuals tend to reside in their property, there are some who select to lease the house or property to tenants or renovate the real estate until it is ready to be sold.
