Blog #8: Gold vs Real Estate: Why Gold’s Depreciation and Poor Sustainability Outlooks Puts It At a Major Disadvantage

With rising inflation rates and unprecedented costs of living, choosing the right investment strategy is paramount. Thanks to its wide availability and flashy draw, many new investors look to gold as a viable investment option. Unfortunately, due to its impracticality, poor long-term returns, and declining demand from new generations, most seasoned investors advise to steer clear of gold. Here is what you need to know:

Gold Depreciation Over Time 

Turbulent economic conditions allow investors to reflect on their current investment portfolio. Out with the (g)old, and in with the new! 

Rare earth metals and crop production have shown their hand in the history of investment. While generations ago it was a coveted resource, over time, gold has lost its draw to newer investment options. Emerging generations simply do not value it as readily as do older generations.

In contrast, real estate is a tried and true method with diverse options for property investment. From residential rentals, to industrial real estate, and even vacant land, real estate is a trusted resource for current and emerging market trends. 

Investors also have to consider the instability and decrease in value of other precious metals and goods. A 2019 study of metal sector deals revealed that coal was actually the primary revenue contender of global mining, with gold coming in second to last. 

This decline in demand may partially be attributed to an eco-friendly global mentality. Mining has taken its toll on the environment as a whole, leaving a hole in the pockets of the future stability of an investment in rare earth metals. 

Erosion, deforestation, and excessive water use all make gold an unsustainable investment choice for the environment. This makes sense when you consider that many have rallied for the preservation of earth’s most precious resources: Earth itself. 

Looking to the Future 

With the onset of work-from-home measures and rampant pandemic precautions, space is a necessary resource for buyers. Moira Taylor, co-owner and CEO of Taylor Made Realty in Atlanta suggests, “Investors should consider the suburbs of major metropolitan areas, as they’re an ideal investment and have seen an increase in buyer demand in places like Atlanta, New Jersey, San Francisco and other major city suburbs.” Investors are taking advantage of these changing trends, and focusing instead on the buying potential of modern real estate. 

As buyer choices change, so too do investment decisions. Whether you’re looking to invest in vacation rentals or you’d like to construct from the ground up, there’s a real estate opportunity for you.

Blog #7: Gold Vs. Real Estate: Gold Is Not a Solid Investment

Gold has been around for centuries. From ancient royalty to present-day investing gurus, plenty of people choose gold as an investment. That many people can’t be wrong, can they?

Well, as it turns out, gold may not be such a golden choice after all. On the surface, it may seem harmless, lucrative even. However, when you look closely, you might start to notice that there are a lot of reasons that gold isn’t quite the excellent investment people have believed it to be for so long. 

Here is why:

A Market Steeped in Instability?

Let’s cut right to the chase. The gold market is simply not stable. That might seem strange, because most people associate gold with prestige and wealth. You figure that it is surely in high demand. Why would its price fluctuate wildly, if everyone wants it?

As it turns out, gold prices move with the economy, like any investment does.That said, gold also crashes harder than some other investments because it doesn’t really serve any purpose, at least not in the way it used to when currency was backed by it.

People like gold, but generally speaking, they don’t need it. It’s a market that people invest in when they’re afraid of paper currencies going under, but its value doesn’t come from it being useful or necessary for society. 

Why Real Estate Glimmers

With that in mind, maybe gold isn’t the right investment. Its instability makes it unreliable—you can’t count on gold to weather through a tough economy with you. So, what’s another investment to consider, if you can’t count on this classic?

Let’s take a look at another thing that people have trusted as an investment for centuries: land, property, and real estate. People have been profiting from owning property for as long as there have been people. Since folks actually need places to live and work, it’s a market that’s never going to go away as long as there are humans on the planet. 

Now, the real estate market does have ups and downs of its own, just like gold or any other investment. Overall, however, it’s a much more stable option. Why? Because the demand for safe housing and attractive corporate property remains constant for the most part.

Putting your money behind something necessary is a good safeguard against turbulence in the economy. You can’t always count on your coins, but real estate? Now that’s a smart investment.

Blog #6: Real Estate vs. Money in the Bank

Investing in Real Estate vs. Banking Your Money: Why Real Estate Keeps Your Money Working For You

Here’s a question you might have been asking yourself: Is it better to invest your money, or hold onto it by keeping it in the bank?

There are so many old adages about money and investing, and perhaps the most important and relevant one? “Make your money work for you!” Another common phrase is “You have to spend money to make money!”, and that’s what’s at the center of the answer to this question. These sayings may be well-worn at this point, but they hold some truth.

When you leave your money in the bank, it does very little besides just sitting there. Sure, having a big number on your account balance looks nice, and it is useful to have some liquid assets you can tap into, but if you’re looking to really pump up your net worth, you’re going to need to put your money into something. You’re going to need to invest.

There are a lot of options for you when you set out to start investing, and real estate is one possible investment. It’s a popular choice, and for good reason.

Why Real Estate Does the Job

Real estate is an evergreen investment, because it has tangible, actual, inherent, and real value. People are always going to need places to live, and so, as long as there are people, there’s a demand for real estate.

When you leave your money to languish in the bank, you’re trading the chance to have a tangible asset to your name for a bigger number on your account statements. That number is nice to look at, but you know what’s even nicer? Being able to drive past an apartment building, knowing that it’s yours, that it’s making you money, and that you made the right choice.

When you’re deciding what to do with your money, it’s worth remembering that doing something with it—anything, really—is how you make a profit. Money sitting in the bank isn’t doing you any good. But investing in real estate, thus using your money to make more money? Utilizing your intangible monetary resources in order to put your name on something real and eternally valuable? Now that’s smart.

Blog #5: Cryptocurrencies vs. Real Estate: Why Cryptocurrency Comes Up Short


Looking for a way to make extra money over time? If you have the means to do so, investing is always a good idea– as long as you’re making
smart investments. Making risky investments in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin can certainly be thrilling, and it’s definitely become somewhat of a fad in recent years; it seems like everyone and their mother has money in some sort of cryptocurrency at the moment. But you should think twice before putting a significant amount of your savings into cryptos, no matter how good of an idea it seems in the moment. That’s because it doesn’t have any tangible backing, among other reasons.

If you’re looking to make a more promising investment, real estate investments could be one great and much safer, more tangible option. If you’re not quite convinced yet, just put down the DogeCoin for a second and let us explain why cryptocurrency comes up short when compared to real estate. 

Cryptocurrency and its risks

Your first question might actually be what, exactly, cryptocurrency is and how the infamous process of investing in it works. Essentially, a cryptocurrency is an electronic currency that does not physically exist, but still holds worth. The value of cryptocurrency goes up and down based on how many people are purchasing it– it’s all about supply and demand. So, if you buy cryptocurrency at a low price, you may be able to sell it for more money once it becomes more valuable. The key word here is may.

One of the risks of cryptocurrency is that it’s extremely volatile. What seems like a good investment one day could be thousands of dollars wasted the next. And while most investments come with the risk of losing your money, cryptocurrency poses another unique risk due to its intangibility. Cryptocurrency isn’t backed up by any physical assets– it’s all electronic. That means it’s susceptible to glitches, errors, and hacking. 

Real estate investment and its benefits

Meanwhile, real estate is one highly tangible asset that offers a much safer investment– it definitely has a physical form to back it up! It’s a whole house! While the fact that property can’t be hacked like cryptocurrency can is a huge plus, real estate investments also offer tons of other benefits: great, steady cash flow, tax breaks and deductions, and steady appreciation in value. It also comes with competitive risk-adjustment returns: over the past 50 years, the average annual return has been about 11%. 

While real estate is a long-term investment, the overall return will be worth the wait. Overall, it offers long-term financial security and a nearly guaranteed great return. This, along with its tangibility, makes it a more secure option by a landslide when compared to cryptocurrencies.

So before you jump on the next big cryptocurrency bandwagon, really think about the risk you’re taking and ask yourself if that money could be better spent on real estate. Sometimes it’s best to play the long game. Happy investing!

Blog #4 : Loving Leverage

For more investments, you have no choice but to pay the market price for whatever it is you’re buying. If an ounce of gold costs 1900 dollars, you pay 1900 dollars. You put in the asking price, and that’s that. It makes sense, it’s reasonable- but it’s not the smartest way to turn a profit on your investment. Wouldn’t it be neat if you could find someone else to help you pay for the investment you’re making, while still allowing you to keep 100% of the profit earned?

With real estate, that’s possible. Leverage is when you use borrowed capital in order to increase the potential return on an investment. In practice, this typically looks like borrowing money from a bank in order to purchase a property. 

Banks will typically cover 75-85% of the cost of a property, and you make a down payment for the remainder. This limits the amount of money you have to invest in the first place, which is nifty, but what’s really nifty is what you’ll experience as your property appreciates value. 

Properties can naturally gain value over the course of time. Say you purchase a property valued at 500,000 dollars, and the bank finances 80% of that. You’ve put 100,000 dollars into that property, with the rest covered by the bank. And let’s say that then, the property appreciates by 5%, or 25,000 dollars. It may seem at first glance that you’ve made a 5% profit on that investment, but that’s not actually the case! You get to keep 100% of the appreciated value- AKA, profit!- from that property, but the amount of money you paid remains the same.

With that in mind, you didn’t make 25,000 on a 500,000 dollar investment. You made 25,000 on a 100,000 investment. That is a 25% profit, and that’s great.

In this way, you can use leverage to turn a nice profit. By utilizing the resources that banks have to offer, you can maximize your financial gain and make the most of your money.

Blog #3: The Many Roads of Real-Estate Profit

There are so many possibilities to consider when you’re contemplating investing your money. Stocks and bonds, mutual funds and gold- the choices seem practically endless. You have to consider the risks you take and the rewards you reap with each of them. At the end of the day, you want to maximize the profit you’re making from your investments. With that in mind, it just makes sense to invest in the most lucrative option.

Most investment options have one, maybe two potential sources of profit. You can cross your fingers that the value of your investment increases so you can then sell it at a profit, but that’s about it. Isn’t it preferable to have an investment that will give you a profit through multiple avenues? 

Let’s talk real estate. Real estate investments provide not one, not two, but eight profit centers. These are:

  • Appreciation
  • Instant Equity
  • Cash Flow
  • Depreciation
  • Leverage
  • Forced Equity
  • Principal Pay-Down
  • Reinvestment

We’re not going to get into each of these in detail today, but right off the bat, you can see from that list alone how real estate can become a gainful investment. 

From the day you invest in a property, you can already find yourself better off than you were previously. That’s due to “Instant Equity”, which is what happens when you buy a property for less than its market value. You might be asking why someone would choose to sell a property for under what it’s worth. 

There are a few reasons for that: the owner might have inherited the property and decided it’s not worth dealing with, or they might be in a situation where they need to liquidate their assets quickly more than they need to maximize their gains from it. Whatever the case, they need to make a quick sale, and that’s where you come in.

After that, once you own the property, you start getting into all the other profit centers real estate has to offer. Property can naturally gain value over the course of time: that’s the “Appreciation” from the list. You can also expand your profit by renting out the property for an amount greater than the expenses associated with your property: that one is “Cash Flow”. And once you’ve begun making a profit with a property, you can reinvest in even more properties, granting you the ability to increase your net worth exponentially.

You want to make smart investments that are going to pay off over time, right? So why not put your money behind the option that will bring in cash from all sides? Real estate could very well be right for you- with the right investments, you could end this year with a greater net worth than you’ve got. The trick is, you’ve got to start.

Blog #2: Steady Eddie Real Estate


The world of finances can feel like a hurricane. The tides of the economy are constantly washing in and out, and it can be hard to tell where you can safely make your investments in order to maximize your returns.

So, how do you tell what investment will secure your fiscal future? The stock market fluctuates every day. You can’t really depend on it to give you what you need. Likewise, bonds and even mutual funds tend to be unstable, as they shift with the external market forces that move the economy. You want a more stable investment, one you can count on. That’s where real estate comes in.

Real estate is a smart investment for a lot of reasons. Chief among these is the steadiness of it. Where other types of investment can lose vast amounts of value at a moment’s notice, real estate has a great consistency in value.

Of course, the value of a property can change. But it doesn’t drop like a cement block, the way the value of stocks can. When properties’ prices change, they do it much more slowly and gradually. That’s because, unlike luxuries like gold and diamonds, housing is a necessary and consistent market. Everyone needs a place to live, and that isn’t going to change. So with that in mind, it only makes sense that your properties would remain valuable no matter what the economy gets up to.

Of course, we all know that the housing market can be subject to negative economic forces. We all learned that in 2008, with the collapse of that particular bubble. But where other markets can’t take such heavy blows and would suffer irreparable damage, housing has a neat tendency to even itself out within a few years. Even if a real estate investment takes a hit, it’ll be back to its old self (or perhaps even better!) in a relatively short time as compared to other investments.

Real estate is just that: real! This kind of investment is reliable because it’s based in actual, tangible things- things people are always going to need. It’s not based on abstract concepts and invisible forces. Real estate is the real deal. If you’re looking for an investment that’s as stable as concrete, property is the way to go.

Blog #1: Where the Wealthiest People Invest


When you invest, you want to do it right. But making the right investments can be a tricky process. Should you buy gold? Diamonds? Should you put your money in mutual funds or stocks? The options are many, and it can seem a little overwhelming.

The thing is, it doesn’t have to be. If you want to make the smartest investment for your finances, your best bet is to look at what the most successful people are doing. And where, exactly, are they putting their money? Real estate.

Real estate is one of the best investments a person can make. 60% of the wealthiest investors in the world have put their cash behind land and properties, and that success speaks for itself. If you know what you’re doing, you really can’t go wrong with real estate- property has an inherent value. It doesn’t go anywhere, and it’s something everybody needs.

Everyone has to have a roof over their head. By investing in real estate, you’re laying down the foundation for a stable and prosperous future. Those in the know know that a good investment is one that appreciates in value and is in high demand. And the demand for real estate never goes away. It’s a limited resource- the planet isn’t getting any bigger, is it? Getting your hands on a piece of that pie is a great way to get your fiscal feet under you and start seeing the returns you want.

Wealthy people know better than anyone how to create wealth. That’s just a given, right? They’ve done the work, they’ve done the investing, and now they’re reaping the rewards. That could be your reality, too, if you just follow the right steps. You’ve got to do what the successful people have been doing in order to see that same success. What so many people have found prosperity in is real estate. It’s only a matter of starting.

If your dream is to get a great return on your investment, with the security that comes with knowing that your money is backed by a real, tangible, and valuable asset, try investing in real estate. The choices you make today are the building blocks for your future. Making the right decisions now is how you ensure a prosperous tomorrow for you and your family. You- yes, you!- could soon begin investing smart and seeing the results you deserve.
