The worldwide pandemic during 2020 has had a huge impact on everyone and we will all be feeling the full effects for sometime. This year has certainly given time for more thought on preparing for the future and how best to secure finances for you and your family.
Whilst they are many ways in which to invest your hard earned money, let’s have a look at a few ways in which this can be achieved.
How To Invest After Lockdown
Become a Landlord
Investing your money into a second property is a smart way of purchasing bricks and mortar for the future. Not wanting to simply leave the property empty, earn a monthly income by becoming a landlord and renting out to tenants. Whilst house prices may fluctuate, they do not fluctuate to the extent of stocks and shares and is a sound long term investment to consider. To ensure a smooth transition, make sure you compare landlord insurance if you decide to choose this form of investment.
Check out Crytocurrency
The recent rise in the Bitcoin price has created some waves and excitement in the cryptocurrency market and it is well worth checking out! The crypto scene is a little like stocks and shares with the buy and sell aspect but can be somewhat more volatile, so it is well worth researching and checking it all out properly before you decide to make any move. Profit clearly isn’t guaranteed as prices can go down as easily as they go up, so it is definitely not as stable as buying bricks and mortar, however it can be fun to keep a track of.
Adding value to your own home
If you are not planning on moving home then home improvements have many benefits. Not only could you extend your property to add more space and a new layout, but an extension can add value to your property. It’s another great way to not only invest after lockdown, but also for the future and your family.
Whilst extending any part of your property or simply redesigning a room can cause some upheaval, it can feel very refreshing and add a new feel to your home when finished.
I hope these suggestions have given you inspiration on how to invest after lockdown! Always research and seek financial advice before taking the leap, to ensure you find what works best for you!
