With the recent housing market troubles, many investors are not looking to invest in real estate. Real estate investments can, however, be the right investment for several reasons—one of which is the potential for capital appreciation. Because the population continues to grow, there is an increased need for housing, and every year the cost of constructing new buildings and homes increases. Due to the supply and demand of housing, real estate tends to increase in value over long periods of time. Additionally, if the value of real estate is not increasing at a desired rate, investors are always able to make improvements to the property to add value instead.

Real estate investments can also generate rental income, which can serve as a great way to get cash flow and even prepare for retirement. When investors rent a property, they create regular cash flow, and if the rent being charged exceeds the expenses needed for upkeep, that cash flow is positive. Furthermore, rent tends to increase over time, giving the investment a potential for growth.
