Real estate goes beyond just buying and selling lands and houses; it has metamorphosed into a much bigger and deeper concept. For instance, we have got different kinds of real estate which many are not aware of. They include,

  • Residential properties,
  • Commercial properties,
  • Industrial properties,
  • Raw lands,
  • Special use, etc. (We would go deep into this at a later date, for now, let’s keep our focus on the benefits of investing in real estate any or even all of the above).

Over time, real estate has proven to be a lucrative venture for investors, yielding a high percentage of ROI and also ensuring double and sometimes even triple figure profit margin, as well as appreciation in value. Investing in real estate has both long and short-term benefits, so as an investor, you would need to decide on which road you want to take, the long term or the short term.


Now let’s go into the benefits of investing in real estate.

The following are ten reasons and benefits that could be derived from investing in real estate;

  1. Real Estate Value Appreciation:

    Real Estate provides appreciation in value for investors, as it is proven to be a growing venture. According to studies, Nigeria’s national real estate appreciation rate is between 3.5% and 3.8% each year. Although this would be of more benefit to the long-term investors, the short-term investors aren’t left out either, as you can also make something off it for the short while you intend to be in the business.

  2. Steady Rental Income and Cash Flow:

    The main reason why people invest in a business is for profit making, and real estate is a good investment in that regard. Having a rental property at a choice location or hot tourist destination would guarantee steady cash flow and income for the property owner/investor. Rental income in real estate is a guarantee and an avenue for expansion, as one can acquire more properties eventually with the profit realized

  3. Reasonable ROI:

    The return on investment (ROI) in real estate is usually high and secure, creating an avenue for the investor to make a huge profit, either on a short-term or long-term basis. A well-planned and timely real estate investment can generate outstanding returns for the investor. In other to increase your chances of high profitability, due diligence needs to be undertaken, with considerations placed on location, pricing, customer/client preferences, property specification, etc.

  1. Achieving Long-term Financial Stability and Wealth:

    One of the safest and best ways to achieving long term financial stability and generate wealth is real estate. Putting into consideration the value appreciation of real estate, ROI, security and safety of investment, high interest and profit margin, etc., you’d come to understand that real estate creates a pathway for investors to generate long term wealth and financial freedom.

  2. Fund Leverage:

    Investing in real estate gives you the leverage to acquire funds for other investment opportunities that you might have your gaze on, thereby creating opportunities for you to grow your financial portfolio.

  3. Hedge Against Inflation:

    One of the benefits of investing in real estate (properties) is that it protects the investor and his finances against the effects of inflation, and this is because the value of properties appreciate annually and often time it does so even more than inflation. Also, it is important to note that as inflation rises, so do rents and the value of properties.

  1. Fostering Portfolio Growth and Diversification:

    Another benefit of investing in real estate is that when done at the right time with the right property, it makes it easy to grow and expand your wealth and network. A financially disciplined investor can increase his chances of acquiring more properties just from the profits of one property. Also, one can diversify his investment and try out other kinds of real estate investments, etc.

  2. Low-Risk Investment:

    There’s a popular saying that real estate is one of the safest and least risky investment option to venture in and this saying is apt. Unlike stocks and bonds, real estate can not crash overnight as it is a physical investment that can stay productive for a very long time, for as long as you (the investor) desire it to. Real estate is only lost to weather, civil disobedience or disaster (fire, burglary, etc.). And in most cases, if they are properly insured all losses can be recovered.

  3. Benefit To The Community and Provision of Housing:

    Apart from the numerous financial benefits of investing in real estate, it can also be beneficial to the community. A well planned and properly designed house gives the community a nice look. Renovating a dilapidated building also takes away an eyesore from the community, and this also provide housing for those who need it. Real estate also ensures that people get to stay in well-designed, safe, clean and healthy houses.

  4. Enjoying Freedom, Flexibility, and Autonomy:

    Investing hugely in real estate not only rake in more money for the investor, it also gives freedom to live as free as so many other career might not bring to the person. A person who has huge investment in real estate in different cities and locations has the freedom to live in any of those places, move as often as they want and enjoy the flexibility that comes alongside.


Despite the undeniable benefits of investing in real estate, given its reputation as a lucrative and profitable business venture, it is advisable to conduct thorough research before venturing in to one to ensure informed decision-making. Just like any other business, it has its pros and cons and failure to do due diligence could bring about a loss of capital and total failure in the business eventually.
