Supply and demand might just be the most important factors in our economy. How much of something exists and how badly people want it are the defining aspects of how that market works. From an investor’s perspective, the best bets are ones where demand outstrips supply. With these kinds of investments, we find success because there will always be people willing to exchange money for what we have.
That brings us to real estate. Everyone needs a place to live so housing is a necessity. With that in mind, it just makes sense that real estate would constantly be in high demand. Everyone needs it, so everyone is in the market for it. This means that if a person invests in residential properties, they shouldn’t have much trouble finding people to rent those homes.
There are a few reasons that demand is greater than supply in the real estate market. One is that demand for housing increases with the population, and the population isn’t getting any smaller. But just because the need for housing has increased, doesn’t mean the supply has. Constructing new rental units costs money and it takes time before you profit from a new building.
Meanwhile, many existing apartment buildings have, in the past few decades, been converted into condos. This leads to even fewer options for renters. But people still need places to live! So, by investing in a piece of the real estate pie, you’ve invested into a market that works in your favour.
A market where demand outstrips supply is one that works for investors. Real estate can provide that kind of environment. It’s something everyone needs and as long as people need shelter, it’s going to stay that way. This is one of the many reasons that real estate can be such a lucrative investment.
