Real Estate As An Alternative Investment

Alternative investments are investments that are not one of the three traditional asset types (stocks, bonds and cash). Alternative investments include hedge funds, managed futures, real estate, commodities and derivatives contracts. Most alternative investment assets are held by institutional investors or accredited, high-net-worth individuals because of their complex nature, limited regulations and relative lack of liquidity. While this may be the case with most alternative investments there are opportunities for small investors within the realm of real estate.

Real estate is a tangible, “hard,” asset that is comparatively unaffected by stock market fluctuations due to its inherent value. While real estate certainly experiences peaks and valleys on historical value charts, it has traditionally been a less volatile asset class than stocks and mutual funds in the short term.

Investing in real estate continues to be an increasingly attractive investment option. A well-diversified investment portfolio is essential given the volatility of the financial markets, and investments in various types of real estate can provide strong diversity to investment portfolios. Real Estate investments also provide tax advantages and appealing returns.

There are risks associated with investing in real estate. For this reason Anderson Ballard Companies offers a wide spectrum of investment opportunities that cater to a wide range of risk appetites.
