Investing in Real Estate or the Stock Market

July 26th, 2011

North Carolina Coastal Properties

Sure, you can make a mint from either stocks or real estate, but that doesn’t make deciding where to invest any easier, and while all investments are cyclical, there’s a reason sophisticated investors are becoming increasingly more comfortable with owning property.

Everyone knows someone who has made a good investment in property – someone who got in at the right time and bought low, sold high and cosidering this a buyers market in real estate with the stock market being volatile, real estate would, certainly make better sense as there are real estate deals everywhere for the taking. However, the same can be said for stocks and bonds. It’s not unusual for those in the financial services industry to have reports with “documented results” or testimonials from investors who have reaped significant gains through strategic planning and fortuitous market-timing. Still, there’s an inherently large amount of risk associated with investing in the stock market and as smart investors will tell you, real estate, by contrast, provides a controllable, predictable source of wealth generation that affords a certain, well…comfort. That’s because the stock market is a fickle thing unpredictable, intangible asset that has little, if any, tax benefits. Real estate, on the other hand, is far less volatile, has superior tax benefits, significant cash flow and a high degree of leverage. The comfort that comes from these attributes gives those investors whose comfort level lies somewhere between low and no risk an ideal investment vehicle.

Tax benefits

Most of the tax benefits associated with investing in real estate are fairly straightforward. The first incentive – and one of the best – is depreciation that applies to a whole variety of investment properties, including boat slips, rental houses, apartments, condominiums and commercial buildings. Depreciation is essentially a “paper loss” for wear, tear and obsolescence – and a big tax incentive because it generates tax savings with no out-of-pocket costs. Secondly, those who qualify by materially participating in the management of their properties, are entitled to many additional tax deductions such as property taxes, mortgage interest, insurance, maintenance. Thirdly, under section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code, real estate investors can sell their properties without paying capital gains taxes as long as they exchange them for others of like kind. To make matters even more attractive, invest in qualifying properties in special areas and the IRS will allow you to write off 50 percent of the value of the improvements – you invest a dollar and the IRS may essentially give you back two. To summarize, sell stock in which you have a gain and you’ll be paying taxes – there’s just no way around it. But sell appreciated property and if you do it right, you can defer your tax indefinitely.

Cash flow

Most stock market investors will pay 100 percent of the share price for a stock (investors who don’t mind the risk of margin calls can buy many stocks for 50 percent down), while real estate investors typically need to put down only five to 10 percent with no risk of margin calls. To illustrate, Investor “A” buys $100,000 worth of stock that appreciates an average of 10 percent annually. At the end of five years, Investor “A” would have stock valued in excess of $160,000 – a gain in excess of 60 percent. Likewise, Investor “B” invests $100,000 in real estate. With 20 percent down, Investor “B” now controls real estate worth $500,000. Investor “B” maximizes leverage by obtaining an interest-only loan and with the property appreciating at six percent per year, after five years the $500,000 property is now worth $670,000. That $170,000 gain is a result of investing only $100,000 and is therefore a 170 percent return-on-investment (ROI) compared with the stock investor’s 60 percent ROI. In addition to tax benefits, the real estate investor can also rent the property, resulting in monthly cash flow – something even dividend-paying stocks and interest-paying bonds usually can’t match. The practical investor recognizes the benefit of investing $100,000 and potentially earning $170,000 over five years in real estate, versus earning only $60,000 in the same time with the same investment in stocks. In reality, the stock market does not go up every single year while real estate often does, so that the above comparisons are even more skewed in favor of real estate.

Risk management and control

For decades, real estate has been the most reliable and dramatic wealth generator for millions of people – and despite the slump experienced in some recently booming areas, many parts of the country continue to experience price appreciation. Real estate markets with steady, solid growth present little risk to mortgage lenders, so it makes sense for them to loan money to investors on attractive terms. Not only does it make sense, but they are actually anxious to loan it to you. And while banks may also loan money for other purposes, they are more willing to loan on real estate because of the safety of the collateral. If for some reason the investor doesn’t pay, the bank still has a physical asset that has significant value. Real estate will never go to zero (as many stocks have) because it is in limited supply, has universal demand, and is constructed from materials which are increasing in price, such as lumber, copper and stone. Additionally, real estate investors have more control over their investment than they would over stocks. Although stock investments have potential for lucrative returns, they are unfortunately afflicted with volatility and suffer unpredictably sharp price fluctuations that often have nothing to do with the quality of the company or the competence of its management.

Leverage & appreciation

Housing is a universal need and with labor and building materials becoming more costly and populations on the rise, real estate prices have nowhere to go but up in certain markets over the long term. With mortgages on sale at the lowest interest rates in the past 40 years, it makes sense to invest in real estate. By stocking up on these bargain-basement prices, investors can maximize leverage and thereby accelerate wealth generation. Real estate in many areas of the country is appreciating at around six percent per year, plus the added bonus of tax benefits. With a 90 percent loan-to-value (LTV) ratio mortgage, six percent appreciation translates to a return-on-investment (ROI) of 60 percent per annum. That’s because when an investor puts 100 percent down (as in stock purchases) he has zero leverage. His return is just six percent when the asset appreciates by six percent. However, putting 10 percent down magnifies the ROI by a factor of 10, creating a lucrative return of 60 percent. To simplify, investing $10,000 in real estate with leverage versus a $10,000 investment in the S&P 500, results in real estate solidly outperforming the S&P 500 – not counting the tax benefits of real estate.

North Carolina Boat Slips

In short; people have grown smarter these days. In today’s real estate market they buy real estate below the market price and let the value grow, then capitalize in many different ways. Real estate investment is being considered more rewarding as compared to the stock market investment, as people just not believe in spinning money but also securing values.

Many people are relizing that their 401k is on the downslide and not producing money for them when the time comes for them to retire and in many cases losing money. There are many savvy cleints are now taking their 401k money and converting it into real estate by purchasing either boat slips or land that are priced far below what the market produced in 2001 – 2006, in fact; in many cases half of what the market demanded. This type of investment will allow the property to appreciate and when sold they would roll that money back into their 401k with a substantial profit that will allow them to opportunity to retire comfortably and their 401k will flourish better than relying on the stock market trends that are risky investments.

Real estate is not just ‘location, loction, location, it’s location and now price. Prices in the current real estate market make real estate a solid investment; even in the current real estate market. Prices to purcahse real estate and boat slips, which boat slips are considered real estate as boat slips are deeded property which gives you all of the benefits of owning real estate mentioned in the examples above. The real estate market has had it’s trends, but has always bounce back to be a sound, solid and safe investment.

So, when is the best time to purchase real estate? The real estate market is curently a ‘Buyer’s’ Market’ and savvy buyers and investors as well as people looking to captialize in today’s real estate market are finding great, unheard of deals and opportunities that are currently priced far below past market prices and buyers are capitalizing on a tangible property with the many benefits that real estate offers.
