“Landlords Grow Rich In Their Sleep. ”
Our citizens simply love real estate. One of the most popular investments for Indian households, is real estate. Many of our rich citizens, buy plots of land, on the outskirts of major cities. A large number of our citizens, who reside in rural areas, migrate to cities in search of jobs. Cities soon expand to accommodate the rising population and what was once the outskirts of the city, is now within the city limits (city proper). The rich citizens of our country, then sell this land (which was once on the outskirts and bought at a cheap price) and make a lot of money. Land usually appreciates in India, especially in rising and major cities. Rich citizens buy second homes and hold them as investments.
What about our middle class citizens? Many of our middle class citizens, believe that buying plots of land is something, best left to the rich. Wrong….If you buy a plot of land from an approved and reputed developer, banks will finance you. You would be financed around 60-70% of the cost of the plot of land. You just have the make the down payment.
Remember: Making money from land is all about location. Many developers say…this or that project, is coming up. Your plot of land is a golden egg, which will fetch you a lot of money, in a few years. You need to actually visit the plot of land and make enquiries, to see if this is true. Check the documentation of the plot of land and make arrangements to prevent squatters and encroachers, grabbing your land.
The Indian stock markets are red hot. Foreign investors are rushing to buy good stocks, listed on the BSE and the NSE. The stocks of reputed Companies, are selling like hot cakes. The rich investors in our country, love to invest in equity. They invest in reputed equity mutual funds and stocks, after doing their research. They stay invested in equity, for several years. Why is this a good thing?
Unfortunately less than 2% of our citizens, invest in equity.
Yes…the rich citizens, know the benefits of investing in equity and are grabbing their opportunities. Unfortunately, our vast middle class, is shying away from equity. They fear equity and are worried that they will lose money. Investing in equity gives higher return, but at a high risk. Investing in equity is very volatile over the short term. However if you stay invested in equity for the long term, (three years or more), an investment in equity is just as safe as any other investment. Chances of getting good returns, are pretty high. The working middle class youth of our country, should consider an investment in equity. The youth of our country, love to take risks. With good research to pick up the right equity mutual funds/stocks and staying invested for the long term, middle class youth in our country, can soon be on the path to riches.
