Agility in Real Estate Investments Means…
The Need for Agility in Real Estate Investments.
It goes without saying that when you’re looking to invest your money, it’s important to balance the potential returns against the risks.
While many have made good money in things like the .com boom and cryptocurrencies, for example, these trendy investments can often become a bubble that’s just waiting to burst.
On the other hand, for the cautious investor, property remains one of the best places to invest your money.
Still, that’s not to say that any investment in real estate is a guaranteed win. While property remains desirable, the changing nature of the markets requires an agile approach from investors.
What is Agility in Business?
To begin, we must clarify what an agile approach in business means.
At a basic level, readers from the business world will already be familiar with the term. But, our aim here is to be concise and go deeper, especially with the property market.
In brief, agility means being able to adapt to change quickly; perceiving risks and threats; and adapting your strategy to accommodate them, thereby gaining an advantage over your competitors.
But what does that have to do with real estate investment? Glad you asked!
At Fox Agency, we strive for agility in the real estate investment.
Why is Agility Important in Real Estate Investment?
Agility is hugely important in real estate investment for a number of reasons.
To begin, the real estate markets all over the world are in a constant state of flux. This means that areas can become more or less desirable (and their value can be directly affected) by what’s being built around them.
For instance, areas where property value was once modest can become gentrified while residential areas that were once popular can also lose their value if the area loses a part of its infrastructure like shops, restaurants and other amenities. In short, the whole value of property is directly connected to the surroundings and hence, the public interest in the area itself.
So, the value of real estate is bound to fluctuate from one time to another.
Therefore, an agile approach is important in real estate investment because it allows you to spot which areas are “on the up” and which face potential threats, causing the value of their property to drop or stagnate.
To put it openly, agility could be what saves you from channeling your funds into a money pit.
More directly, agility can help you realise when the time is right to cut your losses on a property and transfer your funds to a property that will work harder to generate a better return.
With agility being our central philosophy, we make sure that your money is invested in the right place at the right time.
