Every investment decision requires a thorough analysis of the specific opportunity and the relevant market. A defined strategy will help avoid exposure to unwanted risks and the investment outcome being determined by chance. These principles are even more important in the current real estate climate.
The golden age of property investment, when it was sufficient to buy a property and wait for the asset to appreciate, whilst benefiting from excellent returns, is unfortunately over; especially in those countries where the market trend is declining. Making predictions about future price trends is however possible by analysing the fundamental characteristics of the market or the drivers responsible for determining the long-term direction. In the current economic situation, we believe it is necessary to adopt a strategic, professional and highly analytical approach to search for strong and growing markets on a global scale.
An investment in real estate is a complex operation which requires an important deployment of energy; not only when identifying an opportunity but also during the subsequent phases of income generation and continuous management of the asset. This is even more prevalent when the investor’s place of residence does not coincide with a solid real estate market which forces the search of property investment outside of national borders. In order to prevent the investor gaining an undesired workload which becomes a full-time task, relying on a professional is often a very savvy decision.
