Why Property?  by Pip Stehlik 

Major Benefits

  • Be your own boss.  Work the hours you want to work.  
  • Property is a hedge against inflation.  Your property can go up in value during inflationary times.
  • You can use Other People’s Money.  Leveraging debt will allow you to grow your portfolio at a greater rate than using your own money. 
  • Property is always needed.  People need a place to rest their heads.  
  • Property investing allows for Cash flow in your portfolio even if a market goes down.  
  • Property can appreciate while you are getting cash flow which gives you multiple ways to make money. 
  • You can force the appreciation by adding value to the asset.  
  • Property will allow you to have some significant tax advantages.  You will need to talk to your accountant to determine which benefits you are eligible to use.  Depreciation and business expenses are some issues that you should speak to a professional about.
  • Invest in properties with none of your own money and none of your credit. 

One of our most important goals is to show you how to invest for profit while also investing for a purpose.  

Everyone needs a place to live.  

  • When you provide a safe, clean and affordable place to call home, you provide a service to your tenants.  
  • When you help someone get into a property through a lease option/rent to own scenario, you are helping someone become a property owner.  
  • You can also provide commercial space for someone to run their business.  
  • One of the most profitable parts of real estate is to give investors a great return in a lower-risk investment.

Our entire goal as property investors is to solve problems.  We can make money when we solve problems.  Why do so many people not make the amount of money they want to make.  Many times people try to avoid issues rather than solving them.  When you perform a job that many other people can do, your compensation will be in line with those people.  When we want to make more money, we need to solve more significant problems.  Problems like “I don’t have the money!” or “I don’t have the credit!”  You get paid to solve problems, not avoid them.
