​"Real Estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be taken away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it's the safest investment in the world." Franklin D. Roosevelt

Real estate is a secure investment. Market appreciation is the gradual inflation that increases real estate values over time. In the last 50 years, Canadian residential real estate has increased steadily by six percent per year. Over the past 44 years, commercial real estate has increased by seven percent.  These average Canadian figures illustrate that real estate generally rises over time.

With the volatile financial markets of recent years, wise investors, pension funds and Real Estate Investment Trusts are looking for alternative vehicles for their wealth. They look to real estate investments offers, market appreciation, earned appreciation, positive cash flow, mortgage reduction and leverage, and most of all tax deductions. 
The purchase power of money drops over time, so investing in an appreciating asset is a sound way to maintain and grow your wealth. This is even more pronounced if an investor buys in a down market. And real estate increases in value when it is renovated and upgraded, even in bad times.

Become a wise investor
Positive cash flow is when rental income exceeds all expenses and cash surplus remains at the end of the month. This eventual accumulation of cash will enable the wise investor to buy more properties and eventually achieve financial independence.

The ideal real estate investor always expects cash flow to be tight initially, but as rents rise with inflation and mortgage rates, the property remains the same, and cash flow increases. It's the gap between the rent and the mortgage that increases cash flow.
