News From Lea and Lefry
Another great summer month has passed. Just this weekend, we had our Civic Day holiday and we hope you get to enjoy the nice weather even with the pandemic. What is exciting in the past 2 weeks is that most of Ontario is finally on Stage 3 of Reopening. To make the most out of the great weather, Lefry and Luke have been exploring lots of beautiful places and driving around almost daily. It’s their dose of father and son bonding.
We are happy to share that our investment property got fully tenanted despite the restrictions of the pandemic. Our property is giving us a great return on our investment: from appreciation of the property and monthly positive cash flow. What’s also exciting is that our mortgage is being paid off by our tenants.
We are definitely blessed with our real estate investments. Since we started investing in real estate, we have been able to increase our income and grow our wealth. That is why we felt it is the right time to give back to the communities that are in need. We have started to do a monthly feeding program to less fortunate communities in the Philippines. We are hopeful that one day we will be able to expand on that program and provide medical missions and other services to them for free.
Our charity officially launched on our birthday week. This is a very fulfilling way of celebrating both our birthdays. The joy of being able to help multiple families is priceless. This is one of the reasons why we want to grow and scale up our real estate investment business; helping not only our investors increase their wealth in real estate but also help those who are in need.
As we add another year in this world, our journey has taken us to a deeper realization of who we are, finding out what we really love doing, and how we can add value to every person we have met and will meet. As Winston Churchill said, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
We wish you all good health and happiness.
Real Estate vs. Stocks
Investing in real estate or stocks is a personal choice that depends on your pocketbook, risk tolerance, goals, and investment style. It’s safe to assume that more people invest in the stock market, perhaps because it doesn’t take as much time or money to buy stocks. If you’re buying real estate, you’re going to have to save and put down a substantial amount of money.
When you buy stocks, you buy a tiny piece of that company. In general, you make money two ways: As the value of the company’s stock increases, the value of your investment goes up, too. And, depending on the company, you may receive regular dividends, which you can reinvest to grow your investment.
When you buy real estate, you acquire physical land or property. Most real estate investors make money by collecting rents (which can provide a steady income stream) and through appreciation, as the property’s value goes up. Also, since real estate can be leveraged, it’s possible to expand your holdings even if you can’t afford to pay cash outright.
For many prospective investors, real estate is appealing because it is a tangible asset that can be controlled, with the added benefit of diversification. Real estate investors who buy property own something concrete for which they can be accountable. Note that this article does not focus on real estate investment trusts (REITs), which are a way to invest in real estate through financial products that are bought and sold like stocks.
There are a number of considerations for investors when choosing between investing in stocks or buying real estate as an investment.
