Investing in real estate

Real estate, that's a future-proof investment.

Looking for an investment that is both stable and inflation-resistant, and that yields an attractive return to boot? Then investing in real estate is the obvious choice. Supplementing your investment portfolio with the sale/rental of residential housing is definitely a good choice. This is because a real estate investment protects your assets against inflation while opting for a stable return.

In the long term the value retention of real estate is a genuine asset. By supplementing your investment portfolio with real estate you are not only guaranteed a rental income but also an added value from the sale of the property. With Matexi Invest you can choose from a range of newbuild apartments and houses in carefully selected prime locations in Belgium with a high rental potential.

How profitable is investing in real estate?

Market Economist Roel Helgers is happy to share his expertise!

We see that more and more Belgians are choosing real estate. This is not illogical: Real estate prices in our country have risen about 3.5% per year for the last 5 years. That means that you not only get a return on your rental income, but you also earn on your investment when you sell your house or apartment after a few years.

Those who respond smartly to that demographic evolution and have an eye for sustainable, energy-efficient new construction are taking a lead over other investors."

Frequently asked questions about investing in real estate:

What are the tax advantages of investing in real estate?

You'll find the biggest benefit in your taxes. You are only taxed on the indexed cadastral income of your property and not on any rental income. There is also an expense deduction, interest deduction (from your loan) and an additional investment deduction.

How do I calculate my real estate return?

Three main factors determine the return on real estate are: The amount of rent, the potential capital gain in the future, and your own contribution.

You quickly calculate the gross return on real estate by multiplying the rent by twelve, and then dividing by the purchase price. For the net return, you take into account all additional costs.

How to invest for rent

An extra income on top of your monthly salary. One that matches the loan amount to be paid. These are the major advantages of renting out. An important aspect to consider is: do you have the time and inclination to manage and rent out your investment property yourself? And above all, don't choose a property that is too big. The location and the target group you want to rent to, plays an important role in your search.

Investing with a limited budget in real estate, does that work?

Sure, even with a rather limited budget you can purchase a property and in this way assure yourself of a nice investment. Are you preparing for a first, (limited) investment? Then keep these rules of thumb in mind. Taking into account the quota is of great importance. Quotity is the ratio between the amount borrowed and the value of the house or apartment. The leverage effect, whereby the added value realized is higher than if you were to finance everything with your own means. If renting out is an option. Try to match the rental money with the amount borrowed, that way the loan will pay itself off.

What is the best investment for me? A renovation home or new home?

Many investors prefer a newly built house or apartment. The advantages are obvious: you build a security of say 15 years not having to deal with unexpected costs. The protection provided by the contractor's 10-year liability plays a major role in this. With older buildings, you have to make additional investments in the renovation. These costs are more often than not higher than expected. Are you quite handy or have good connections. Help you a lot in this choice. On the other hand, the purchase of the renovation home may be a bit lower compared to a new home.
