Investing in land is one of the growing trends in today's fast paced world. If you have the money the safest way for your money to grow is to invest in real estate. Once the land is purchased it may be used for rental purposes.
Thus income is generated without too much effort and time. It is especially relevant in today's jet age where many a youngster is loaded with money, thanks to the boom in Information Technology, and does not have enough time to spare for the basic needs of life especially eating the right type of food.
Though the above statement is more relevant in the metropolitan cities in India, in smaller cities a lot of youngsters, including students and bachelors, go in for rental accommodation. A group of about four or five join together and take up residence, and even stock up the kitchen with essentials to try out their cooking skills.
It is most appropriate considering the various reports about the health hazards faced by youngsters due to their stressful lifestyle. Since many a number work on night shifts, it enables them to move about freely without too many restrictions. Real estate agents also target offices with transferable jobs where there is likely to be movements on a three-yearly basis.
Some residences also offer Paying Guest facilities where arrangement for meals and laundry are made by the owners of the house. It is especially convenient for old aged couples who are residing on their own to be aware that there is someone around in case of any untoward emergency.
Hence it works both ways. Working women's hostels are another major source of income of rental accommodation. Most women prefer such hostels since it is considered to be safer than individual accommodation.
Corporate sectors too prefer renting independent accommodation for their staff where they even organize food for them. It works as a convenient arrangement for both parties concerned, the employer and the employee.
Commercial rental sectors include office spaces, shopping malls and showrooms. Income is generated on a regular basis as such offices and showrooms, once established are not likely to move out for quite a long period of time. Moreover renting involves less risk and maintenance than buying.
