Why invest in real estate?

Discover our mission

In an uncertain economic climate, traditional financial investments seem to be declining drastically and no longer ultimately represent sound value: “stocks/bonds” type financial products no longer provide sufficiently stable return on investment and savings accounts, until now appreciated by anti-speculators for their “yield/risk-free investment” ratio, now only offer interest at less than 1 %.

In order to assist its investment customers and allow them to save time and provide a single point of contact and serious expertise, OWN devotes all its energy to identifying opportunities that correspond to them.

Whether it is with a view to obtaining additional income in the form of regular cash flow or with the aim of creating a long term savings plan, making the right investments is no longer easy.

What are the advantages of buying real-estate?

Investing in real-estate remains undoubtedly the best investment possible in the face of the uncertainty of the current situation in Belgium and elsewhere.

Indeed, real-estate investment provides a significant number of advantageous guarantees and relevant criteria that seem to respond positively to these circumstances:

  • stable and secure rental profitability and yield,
  • capital gains possible in time,
  • Low rental risks,
  • Attribution of additional income, direct (overall income) or in the future (retirement savings, long-term investments, etc.)
  • ease at the level of growing funding solutions thanks to significantly lower mortgage rates,
  • possibility of a leverage effect,
  • rental market constantly in high demand, etc.

Real-Estate Investment in Brussels

With a consistently stable market, Brussels remains unquestionably the place to invest in Belgium. As a European capital, Brussels has many advantages that make real-estate investment sound in terms of profitability and capital gains over time.

  • A continuous demand on the rental market, for both new-builds and older properties, ensuring stable rental income.
  • Very high registration fees, but fees that consolidate the market value of investment projects.
  • A capital city that is flourishing and is a center for all interests.

Whether with a view to creating a significant real-estate portfolio, consolidating existing heritage assets or buying a first property, the Brussels market has many good years to come.

The Disadvantages of Real-Estate Investment

But despite these numerous advantages, investing in rental real-estate in Brussels still has disadvantages, particularly related to knowledge of current real-estate matters and the tangibility of the asset:

  • the rental framework and the risk of any unpaid rent,
  • poor knowledge of market prices and the risk of not making the right real-estate investments or of not paying a fair purchase price,
  • considerable efforts concerning renting out, daily management and the time capital to be invested, etc.
