I’m pretty new to these forums but I love the discussion everyone gives. Great points made by both you two. Ive been debating the same thing and wondering where i should put more of my money. Thanks for the insight.
I think it depends on the preferences. Real estate is more familiar investment than stocks but it has more work to do compared to stocks. But stocks prices can fluctuate very much and could worry investors a lot. Either way both real estate and stocks are a good wealth creators.
Cant buy stocks at a discount or finance them with only 20% down! I’m doing both like any good investor would but I sure do love me some RE. I’d much rather have something tangible that I can fix up or whatever instead of “voting rights” that don’t mean squat.
I am definitely a real estate guy as the sharemarket is to liquid and you have to be aware constantly. But that is just my preference and I think it really is a matter of “horses for courses” and there is no definitive answer for which is better.
OP, as I can see, you understand something in real estate. I have an issue and I want opinion from an expert. Is it the right time to sell property right now? I think that the economic crisis will bring real estate prices down. And when it happens, it will be a time to buy property. And right now I’m looking for ways to get rid of my house in Coventry. Moreover, I want to sell it to this https://www.thepropertybuyingcompany.co.uk company because they can buy it really fast. Am I making a mistake or not? It seems to me that I will need a lot of money soon.
