The question of “is property a good investment” does not have a simple yes or no answer. A better question to ask might be, is rental property a good investment?
Property is simply an investment vehicle that can give good returns if you do your research. It can also be a horrible investment if you get it wrong.
For a property to be an investment, it generally means that you will not live in it but will rent it out to other people. For the sake of this article, we will be referring to residential investment property.
