Real estate investment makes sense or not. Can someone explain with simple calculations

As an investment residential real estate doesn't make much sense. Commercial it does, but if you compare it mutual funds and take a sample size of 6+ years, the returns by mutual funds will be way more than real estate.


From investment point of view, you should invest in a risky asset if you can earn more than the risk free rate or least risky assets like FD. Say FD gives a return of 5.5 percent, then your real estate return ( price appreciation + rental yield ) should be more than 5.5 percent. Rental yield depends on the area / city. In a City like Delhi rental yield is around 2.0 percent. Hence price appreciation should be more than 3.5 percent for the investment to be profitable. Housing prices in india grew 3.8 percent in 2022 therefore real estate investment might not be a good option from investment POV in present times as it has other risks associated with it as well (Eventhough it gives tax benefits)
