Investments have long been considered a unique and thoughtful gift for the more important occasions such as birthdays, weddings and Christmas, preferred because of their long-term nature and ability to help establish the recipient financially. Government bonds have traditionally been seen as a good option for gift-giving, especially in the US where around US$24.3 million worth of bonds were gifted in 2015 alone.
But times have moved on, government bonds are quickly becoming known as a risky and toxic investment and there are now newer and easier ways of gifting a friend or family member with a good investment. The rise of online equity crowdfunding now offers a straightforward way of purchasing shares in an entity without the paperwork, and the real estate branch of equity crowdfunding is an especially lucrative option for those looking to provide their loved ones with a chance of collecting good returns.
Bricksave can make this process easier for the buyer and more profitable for the recipient – here’s why:
With Bricksave everything is done online, and you can make an investment in no time. We also handle all research and administration, which in the real estate market would usually take an investor months to deal with. That means no paperwork, no endless phone calls, and no complicated jargon – just a few clicks and it’s done. And with our easy-to-use dashboard, your loved one can login to their Bricksave account at any time to monitor their investment.
If you’re going to make an investment on behalf of someone in 2017/18, real estate may be your best option. In 2017 family offices and hedge funds saw substantial withdrawals from public markets in favour of allocations to real estate. Many professional investors are now favouring property as the year’s most stable investment over other traditional investments such as bonds.
Real estate investment is a long-term practice, meaning that your loved one will be able to enjoy their gift for years to come – no other gift has that kind of lifespan. Bricksave’s investment horizon is four years, thus providing your loved one with a gift they’ll still be using for the next three Christmases.
Bricksave only invests in properties that have existing tenants, which means that your loved one can benefit from your gift straight away, earning a monthly rental income as soon as the investment is made.
Unlike gifting stocks or bonds, a real estate investment comes with a good deal more security than most other investment types – this is due to its tangible nature and the overall stability of the housing market. This means that your gift can be put towards establishing a solid foundation for your loved one’s finances, helping them plan for a financially secure future.
So if you want to give your loved ones a Christmas gift that has true lasting value and will help them for years to come, why not have a call with one our dedicated sales consultants on +54 11 5983 9477 or email [email protected] for more information.
