As a professional, you understand the importance of wealth. Wealth isn’t winning the lottery or the loss of a rich uncle. Wealth is the accumulation of multiple revenue streams; paychecks that keep flowing in while you work your job or take a vacation with your family. Real estate is the perfect solution to creating wealth that lasts a life time.

Real estate wealth can easily be transferred – It’s easy to transfer a piece of property to someone else upon your ultimate passing; perhaps your spouse or one of your children. You can very easily set up your loved ones for the rest of their lives and ensure they have regular income.

Very little overall work – Buying a piece of property isn’t simple. Once the property is purchased, you still need to keep tenants in place, keep the building maintained, etc. However, if you take part in crowdfunded real estate through Mascia Development, we do all of the work for you. We do everything from finding the property, buying it, managing the financials, and making sure the building is properly maintained and full of paying tenants. You just collect your dividends.

Rents increase with inflation –Historically, over time, the rent you charge to your tenants will increase. This protects your income from inflation. If you were to receive the same paycheck every year, that money is actually worth less each year as the value of money inflates. By raising the rent to meet inflation, you keep that income at the same market value, which protects you.

“They aren’t making any more of it” – That’s a phrase that gets applied to real estate all the time. There will always be value in property because there is a fixed supply of it. If the economy goes down, people can lose their less tangible assets (like commodity futures) entirely, but people will always need places to live, work, shop, etc.

Increased value on top of your monthly income – It’s not a good strategy to buy real estate just for the purpose of reselling it, but truthfully you are more than likely to sell it for more than you originally paid in several years. While every market has dips, if you look at any 20-year period, real estate is generally higher.
