Do Real Estate Investments Make Good Gifts?

Give the present that keeps on giving!

What do you get the person who has everything? How about an investment in real estate! 

It’s safe to say that this holiday season is going to be a little different than usual. With COVID-19 still out there, even shopping for a present will be tricky. After all, who wants to head to a mall in the middle of the pandemic? The obvious route would be to go online for Cyber Monday and pick up some presents, but what to get? You could always give them a gift card, but that lacks any real personal touch.

If you want to give a loved one a present that they won’t expect but will continue to give back to them for months and years, why not consider passive investment into real estate?

Why Passive Real Estate Investments Make for Good Gifts

One of the best reasons why real estate investments make for fantastic gifts right now is because of the economy. We can’t overstate the impact of COVID-19. In every province, the personal finances of folks have taken a real hit since March, and don’t even get us started about the country’s finances! By giving someone you love an investment, you will be giving them a potential cash flow. If the worst was to happen and they lose their job (or there is another shutdown), the money that would come from that investment could keep them afloat for a while. 

It can be tough to teach young people about money nowadays. By gifting them an investment, you will be giving them a potentially valuable learning experience. They can watch their investment grow in value, teaching them the importance of building equity. It’s incredible how many young people, even in their 20s and 30s, know nothing about investing. Yet, Gabrille and Kevin were in their 20s when they started Regalway and it has boomed! 

If you get people started at a young age by giving them the gift of passive real estate investment, it could pay off big later in life! 

Another reason why passive real estate investment is such a great gift is right there in the name: passive. Your loved ones don’t need to do a thing to get a great return. For example, at Regalway, we have investments in properties around the country, but especially in Ontario. Our investors don’t need to lift a finger to help with renovations, property management, or any of the other headaches associated with owning property. All they need to do is watch the money come in! 

What About the Presentation?

Part of the fun of giving a present is that there is a big gift under the tree. If you were just to give your loved one a printed-off piece of paper, it might lessen the excitement. So, here are some ideas about how you can make giving an investment into a gift-giving event!

First, talk with us. We would be delighted to send you high-quality photos of the investment properties. We can also provide you with all the details of the property to include with the present. 

Next, don’t skimp on the box! Just because it’s going to be mostly paper doesn’t mean you can’t make the gift-giving experience an extra bit of excitement. Maybe roll up the information about the investment like a parchment that they need to unfurl. And be sure to place everything in a brightly coloured box so you can put it under the tree!

Think Beyond the Holidays

Keep in mind that giving investments as gifts isn’t just something to think about around the holiday season. In fact, investing gifts can be wonderful for all occasions!

Have a child or grandchild on the way? Give them an investment now that could pay for their university 20 years down the line! Not sure what to give the kids when they’re getting married? An investment in real estate could provide them with the stability they need! 

If you think that a passive investment in real estate would make for an outstanding gift, but you aren’t sure how to get started, we invite you to book a consultation with us today! We would be delighted to help you find the perfect investment gift that will 100% make your loved one’s holiday season!
