When you buy a stock, the only way you can make money is if the stock appreciates in value, and you sell it at the good time. With real estate you can make money in many ways, I can name those 12 off the top of my head, and there are many more.
In real estate you become an Investor and buy property in low price from the needy persons and then sell it after upgrading its nature and advertising it at a big scale. Investor should have money as well as good marketing skills and they can wait for best selling price. While in other businesses only way to make money is to buy stock and if value of stock increases the business man can get profit.
The value of property gradually increases day by day and the agent thus get profit for the time period.
In property business you can make additional profit by staging the property to attract buyers over market value. But stockiest, always buy and sell stock on market rate. Property agents can try to beat the market at their own choice.
Property agents can also get commission by the selling properties of the other people and the commission they can easily earn from both parties that is from the buyer and the seller. Thus you can make money by spending nothing.
The Property agents have another option to earn money that is by renting out different properties of other people. By this dealing they can get profit from the landlords and the tenants. While in other businesses there is no such provision of earning the money. Thus again the property business is a good business to earn profit.
In property business how to earn profit it almost depends on you. The property investment will be effect of hard work that your one upgrades the property, uphold it, search a proper tenant, and upkeep its nature for the years thus property business is concrete and sold investment for earning profit.
Property agents always take advantage as people have not time to search properties of their own choice whiled property managers have good options in their hand and the needy persons.
In property business good planning is the back bone to earn profits. Hence you should examine the area you want to buy and nature of property with all details of the property. If you are not helpful and extreme dislike to refurbish, buy a new place or somewhere you can afford to hire out the renovation without tanking action. If you want to rent to families only, buy a nice family home in a good school district. For young professionals, find a reasonable studio or 1 bed that is an easy travel from a forceful region of service.
In my opinion there is no such profitable business in the world than property business. There are always big risks in other businesses while pa Real Estate business has very rare change of loss.
