Everyone wants to invest in their future. Some people invest in stocks or funds, others save for years then plough their money into a hedge fund. Others, however, prefer to invest in items of beauty, products you can see and touch. You can enjoy these products before selling them on. We all like style, and these can give you it by the bucketload.
The Classic car market has boomed in recent years, so if you managed to buy one of the many cars that could potentially increase in value you could be onto a winner. An investment especially geared toward petrolheads, it’s something to enjoy as long as you put some time into the upkeep of your car. It’ll look great in front of your home and you can take it for long drives on weekends.
Art comes in all shapes and sizes from older nineteenth century prints to bespoke diorama. Modern art has come to the fore recently, with people preferring odd lines and angles to specific paintings. You can hang it on a room in your house to give it that personal touch whilst knowing it’s only going to increase in value whilst you have it. You can even find paintings for sale online.
Certified Vintage Baseball Cards And Other Memorabilia
Appealing to the collectors among us, baseball cards and indeed many other types of collectables can increase dramatically in value over the years. They can look great if you encase them and hang them from the wall or place them on a mantelpiece. Autographs can be a great investment, the key is to find the athletes who are going to make it big and get an autograph. Then wait until they’re a household name before selling, netting you a handsome return.
Comics are a great collectable for the more nerdier among us, and can provide hours of joy if the pages are handles correctly. Comic books are great because kids used read comic books and generally tossed them in the trash or shared them with a buddy. Very few survived. As the years passed, people began placing a value on comics. Condition and scarcity hugely impact the comic book market. Missing pages, loose centerfolds and other defects will devalue a comic book, as will page quality. Comic books that mark the first appearance of a popular character are pricey, as are comic books with important storylines.
Again, only valuable if you buy it and keep it, you can’t drink it! Appealing to collectors, wine can net a great return on investment. For the past 21 years, many wines have outperformed blue chip stock. You need to be able to store it in a climate controlled environment to ensure it doesn’t spoil and be able to recognise counterfeits. If you buy early when the prices are low then it is likely you can make a huge profit depending on how long you want to hold onto the bottle for. A bunch of special bottles tucked away in a wine display can look great in your home, just be sure no guests open them by mistake.
