Estate V. Stock Market - Which is the better place to invest?
The purchase, holding, renting and reselling of real
estate assets - especially residential real estate - is now the investment
of choice for the majority of investors. Money is pouring in as a direct
and proximate consequence of low interest rates, which favor mortgaging over
deposits and low-risk asset holdings over high-risk speculative stocks.
Demand for residential real estate throughout all urban
areas in North America - and to a lesser extent Europe - has gone through
the roof. This affects especially condominiums and town homes located well
inside urban cores, but it extends to single-family assets into suburbia
just as well. Real estate has become the psychological equivalent of
gold, historically considered a tangible, safe store of value.
Tangibility of assets is, in fact, one of the
primary psychological reasons of this financial revolution. Given the
choice between the purchase of a piece of paper representing the share into
a far-away company over which the Investor has no control, and the purchase
of four walls and a ceiling that the Buyer can see, touch and paint, the
vast majority of consumers today are not going to hesitate for one second :
they'll take the latter. But there is also a very important practical
reason: availability of financing.
The type of Buyer has also changed. With the advent
of the internet and all other technological advances, Buyers today are more
knowledgeable than ever before. As such, they want to see through things
thoroughly and, once again, it is easier and preferable for them to
determine by themselves whether they like a piece of real estate than it is
to believe to a Stock Broker or analyst. More than ever they want sound
advice and hot tips, and there is no question that those they can get from
either a good Real Estate Agent or a good Stock Broker. But what the Stock
Broker cannot offer is a tour of the company. A Real Estate Agent, on the
other hand, will show them the house.
And, finally, population growth, density and age are
other important factors in today's prevalence of Real Estate over the Stock
Market. For instance, here in the Greater Vancouver region population is
expected to grow 58 percent to 3.3 million people in the next 25 years
according to the Urban Futures Institute. That's 1.2 million more people
than are here now. The Institute reports that the Baby Boom generation now
makes up about one-third of the population. Their aging will result in a
surge in the over-55 population of 146 percent by 2030, and that many
baby-boomers today are beginning to look towards their retirement years and
golden age as a period of calm, enjoyment and relaxing - free of the
continuous buy-and-sell hustle typical of stock exchanges everywhere. They
are more and more beginning to question Donald Trump's make-it-or-break-it
philosophy for a more solid and long-lasting approach to the management of
their own personal wealth and finances.
