Thinking and investing ahead
Like every type of investment the perceived value can go up and down, the stock market comes to mind. Experts on the stock market always tell you to think of the long term profits, it's proven time after time that shares do have a very good ROI over a longer period - 30 to 40 years.
The same can be said of the value of your home. The housing market goes up and down, it has always done this and will always keep doing this. So, invest in brick and mortar for a longer period of time - 30 to 40 years. As seen above, the life-span of quality wooden flooring - 30 to 50 years - keeps pace with this.
Clever home owners and property managers think ahead and invest in their property no matter if house prices go up or down.
