4. Hardened Against Inflation
A great reason to invest in real estate is that unlike many of the alternatives, it is relatively hardened against inflation. Since most of the time rental income for a property will generally increase with inflation with the mortgage payment staying the same, the overall cash flow will increase. This will result in a bigger net gain for the investor since there is not an increase in overall expenses for holding on to the property. As the inflation rates increase, it will also result in an overall increase in the total number of people who are competing to rent a property vice buy a new one via a mortgage helping boost the overall profits even further.
