Why you should invest in real estate in 2021

If you’re thinking about investing in real estate in the new year – the simple answer is, yes, you should. The housing market has ballooned over the past few months, with Greater Toronto Area home sales up again year-over-year four months in a row.

Investing in real estate is an excellent option because it’s a lower risk investment compared to stocks and bonds. And, it’s guaranteed to hold its value over time, with the price continuing to increase because there is limited supply – in Hamilton in particular, with the demand continuing to grow.

The Toronto Regional Real Estate Board reported that sales increased 24.3% for the month of November. Last year, the number of sales sat at 7,090 and this year in November that jumped to 8,766. The demand is expected to continue well into the new year.

Another benefit of investing in real estate is that you’re able to have control over your investment.

Instead of relying on a company or government to manage your investment, you can manage it yourself. This allows you to act on chances for improvement and therefore control your returns.

Investing in Hamilton is a good choice.

Hamilton’s market in particular has been hot! With those who would have before chosen to shop closer to Toronto’s downtown core for housing no longer doing so, the market in surrounding cities has skyrocketed. Being able to work from home is a huge factor in people’s decisions to move out of the city, as having to commute into work every day is no longer necessary. Canada as a whole is an attractive option because of the great social benefits – including healthcare and the education system.

Investing in real estate is also an attractive option because it provides a steady cashflow from rental income.

It’s also more of a sure investment, with real estate remaining resilient for the most part, even when the economy takes a downturn. People will always need a place to live, but instead of buying property they may choose to rent, still increasing cashflow.

Investing in multifamily properties is also a plus.

These types of properties will for the most part provide you with a greater monthly cash flow compared to purchasing single family homes. The rent to price ratio is typically better when investing in multifamily properties.
