There are a number of reason people invest in real estate. This piece examines 5 of them in brief

2. BUY – BUILD – SELL: A private developer (on a small, medium or large scale) may acquire property to build and sell the land and the building on it at a profit.

3. BUY – BUILD – LET/LEASE: Here, the investor buys the property, builds on it, rents/leases it out and obtains annual rent on the property. A number of pensioners opt for this investment option as it gives a guarantee of a steady means of income.
