When it comes to investing in Singapore.
Property is arguably one of the most lucrative investments to make — especially since we’re so land-starved.
All you have to do is own property, sit back, relax, and collect rent.
Sounds great, right?
But you need a large amount of capital to get into property and frankly…
Buying a BTO HDB flat to live in already costs SO much, how to invest in property for income?!
Have you heard about Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)?
What Is a REIT?
For those of you wondering what is a REIT.
It’s basically a trust which pools money from investors to invest in a portfolio of income-generating real estate assets.
Think of it as you and a group of friends coming together to buy a couple of properties together, renting them out, and collecting the rental income.
The coolest thing about Singapore-listed REITs is that they are required to pay out at least 90% of their yearly taxable income to investors.
This means that with REITs, you are promised regular and high payouts.
“What kind of returns can I get from REITs?” you ask.
It’s somewhere between 5% and 8% a year.
(Disclaimer: this is highly dependent on which REIT you choose and the performance of Singapore REITs as a whole. Also, I’m not recommending that you invest in REITs. This is just a tool to help you out if you want to do so.)
Making this a very attractive investment for investors looking for a regular source of income.
So… How to Invest In REITs?
For starters, it’s going to take a lot of work.
Like. A LOT.
(C’mon, nothing good ever comes easy, right…)
You just got home after a long day at work.
All you want is a shower, dinner, and to relax.
You wouldn’t want to waste time cooking a meal when you could be catching the latest episode of that new Netflix series that everyone’s talking about.
And the last thing you would want to do is pore through pages of financial statements or do your own valuation of data just to pick the best Singapore REITs to invest in.
Not that there’s anything wrong with doing that… but wouldn’t you want to spend your time doing something else that you REALLY like?
