How is Ark7 Real Estate Investing Different Than Stock Market Investing?

Last Friday, the stock market took an alarming downturn, and investors got a real taste of how a market slump can negatively affect their pocketbooks. While the Dow Jones looks to be steadily recovering, stock investors should consider pursuing new avenues to diversify their investment portfolio and protect against volatility.
At Ark7, investors enjoy the low volatility of the real estate market. Unlike stocks, real estate assets are unlikely to change due to daily fluctuations in the market. The value of real estate is determined by steady factors like location, property condition, etc. rather than the daily demand of the public market, so the value of Ark7’s properties are shielded from unexpected market fluctuations.

What Makes Ark7 Real Estate Investing Different From Stock Investment?

01

Low Volatility

Investing in stocks is a huge gamble that is influenced by a variety of uncontrollable factors. One of which is market volatility. Volatility is a measure of how much the stock market’s value fluctuates up and down. Individual stocks themselves can also be considered volatile if their value drastically fluctuates regularly. Aside from diligently researching market trends and choosing the right stocks to buy, stock investors have little power over marker volatility. A successful stock can quickly turn into a money-pit in seconds in a volatile market, leaving investors with a financial loss.

At Ark7, investors enjoy the low volatility of the real estate market. Unlike stocks, real estate assets are unlikely to change due to daily fluctuations in the market. The value of real estate is determined by steady factors like location, property condition, etc. rather than the daily demand of the public market, so Ark7’s properties hold an unwavering value.

Monthly Passive Dividend Income

There is no denying that stock investing can be a valuable method to create long-term savings. In most cases, however, stocks do not provide a consistent monthly income stream. For those looking to add a monthly passive income stream, real estate investment is a much better option.

Co-investors at Ark7 don’t have to wait for quarterly payouts or analyze a stock’s trend line for years to receive financial benefits. Ark7’s properties payout on a month-to-month basis dependent on the percentage of property shares owned.

Specific Real Estate Investing Perks

A combination of significant tax benefits, leverage, and the potential for monthly passive income make real estate a rewarding long-term investment strategy. When you factor in exponential property appreciation, especially in America’s hottest markets, real estate investment has a higher ROI than any other investment method.

Transparent Investment

Anytime you purchase a stock, you are taking a gamble on a company’s success without necessarily knowing the company’s intentions. The stock market is full of empty promises that leave investors in financial ruin. Just because a company promises increased production and profitability doesn’t mean a stock will successfully turn a profit for investors.

At Ark7, investors know exactly what they are paying for. Our property selection process is transparent, and every listing on our marketplace is carefully selected after in-depth market research, property evaluation, and investment analysis.

In today’s economic climate, investment portfolio diversification is as important as ever, and real estate investing is one of the best avenues out there. From tax benefits to monthly passive income, Ark7 is here to help you access all the perks that real estate investing has to offer.
