From the time children are very little, parents are told to start saving for college. It’s true that the cost of higher education continues to rise, and financial aid isn’t as generous as it once was, so it is important to plan ahead. To avoid suffocating amounts of student loans, saving is essential. Unfortunately, even with the best intentions, many families don’t have anything left over after paying monthly bills to start a nest egg for education. This is where an investment property can make a big difference.
A wise investment in residential property will provide you with some extra funds that will grow if put in a college savings account. It’s true that even a little bit every month will add up, so if you jump into real estate while your kids are young, you’ll be able to really watch your investment grow. Even if your children are teenagers, you still have the potential to realize some significant savings before they graduate.
With the right property and healthy management, you will probably see your savings grow from month-to-month profit, but you’ll also gain equity in the property. After many years, you could even sell the property and use that money towards college bills, or possibly take out a home equity loan if needed.
