Real Estate vs. Traditional Investment

How reliable is Real Estate investment when compared to other markets. Here are a few comparisons with other markets where people invest in:
Stock Investment
People put their money in company stocks and shares and enjoy profits. But then there is a huge number of investors suffering a loss in the same market. The risk here is the instability of the market. The price fluctuations in the stock market are more frequent and destructive to your savings. Any additional government tax or other market conditions can end you up in debts than profits
However Real estate is a long-term investment, it is highly secure from the above-said dangers. It is, in fact, a less stressful job that doesn’t require you to keep daily tabs on the market fluctuations.
Precious Metals
Silver, Gold, Platinum are less risky to invest in. Investing in precious metals is a wiser choice when the market is unstable.However, Bullion or buying of precious metals is a stressful job too as you need to wisely choose how much money you’re going to spend and in what commodity it is being put in.
Real Estate here again scores a point due to its price stability and more relaxed nature of the investment.
Bank Savings
For smaller savings, banks might be a good idea. But investing money in the real estate promises you better returns over a period of time.

Thus, real estate market, despite having its own issues is a safer choice for investors of any age group and is less of a headache for the investor.
