This is your number option—to invest in real estate. As you can see, there are plenty of commercial buildings, residential towers, and subdivisions popping out everywhere. Both Metro Manila and the provinces in the Philippines are seeing this development. You can use this growth to your advantage by starting to buy your properties and using them for business or investments. Buy a condo unit and rent it out. Buy a residential house and flip it. Buy a piece of land and use it for capitalization. There are numerous approaches to real estate investing. As early as now, you should be able to find out what’s the right method for you.
The economy of the Philippines continues to develop and agriculture is still a good choice to invest in. Despite all the issues we are hearing about farmers and lands, agriculture can still boost the future of the Philippine economy. If you are an OFW, you can invest in agriculture by buying lands than can be farmed or investing in farm owners’ businesses. A lot of OFWs are doing this because they still believe that this industry will never die. Even if you are locally employed or now owning a business, you can still use this investing approach. Remember, if agriculture dies, people will suffer. No one would ever want to kill this industry!
If you are worried about your budget, you can start building your own online business. This is ideal for investors who want to stay at home while earning. Filipinos are now fond of online shopping. If you will use this concept to start earning money, you will definitely become successful as long as you are using the right products and services for your business. Online business doesn’t require high capital. But, it needs effort from you especially during your branding stage where you post a lot of pictures and captions to let everyone know what you are selling.
These three options are alternatives to stocks, mutual funds, and bonds. But if you want to diversify, you can invest in more than one of them. If you have the financial capacity, don’t stick to one investment. Always have two or more.
