A guide to investing in SCPI in 2024

SCPI at the peak of real estate investment in 2024

SCPI is emerging as the preferred choice for real estate investment. In the face of shrinking investment bank returns and growing uncertainty around pensions, rental property is positioning itself as the safe haven par excellence. But how to choose the best real estate investment? Here are some key points highlighting SCPI’s growing popularity among French investors in recent years:

Outsourcing management to professionals

Entrusting the management of your property portfolio to a management company allows SCPI investors to earn rent without management fees. A boon for savers freed from the constraints of property ownership (condominium fees, property taxes, labor, tenant management) to invest in real estate with total peace of mind. The management company draws on its experience and skills in creating a strategy aimed at achieving pre-defined goals.

SCPI offers an attractive return on real estate

The growing appeal for SCPI is explained by the prospect of returns of up to 7% without management fees. Grégoire Moulinier, founding partner of La Centrale des SCPI, the leading distributor of SCPI shares in France, points out that in the face of the poor performance of life insurance in euro funds and bank savings products, the French are strategically redirecting their liquidity towards income SCPIs. This allows them to receive attractive rents on a regular basis while increasing their property.

Control the rental risk

In SCPI, rental risk is greatly reduced due to the large number of assets that make up the portfolio. We are far from the risk associated with an apartment rented to a single tenant. SCPIs have the flexibility to invest in different types of assets and diversify geographically, thereby reducing rent risk for investors.

Customize the SCPI acquisition method of his profile

The first question that arises for any investor concerns the creation of additional income, either immediately or in anticipation of retirement.

Create an immediate annuity with a cash purchase

For savers with idle cash in low-yielding bank accounts or involved in risky investments such as the stock market, investing in income assets, particularly through SCPI shares, is a smart alternative. With affordable tickets, this approach offers the possibility of creating a real profitable property.

Faced with ever-changing life expectancies and significant reductions in retirement income, building diversified assets in SCPI is proving to be strategic. It allows you to generate regular and unlimited income while preparing for the transfer.

Optimize leverage with an SCPI loan

Leveraging through an SCPI loan can be relevant in many situations. The quality of the credit offer is of paramount importance, which requires prudent financing management to ensure convenient repayment adapted to the saver’s situation. Lionel Benhamou, founding partner of La Centrale des SCPI, emphasizes the importance of taxation in this approach.

Neutralize taxation through fragmentation

For highly taxed investors or those approaching retirement, temporary asset fragmentation appears to be a sensible solution. This approach allows you to acquire only bare ownership of SCPI shares for a period, offering a discount on the share price and thus eliminating taxation. Matching the length of chunking to the pension allows rent to be collected when the saver’s income inevitably declines.

Invest in the best SCPIs of 2024

It is not enough to acquire an SCPI portfolio to invest wisely in SCPI; it is essential to choose them according to your specific goals. Inviting an investment professional is critical to identifying the best opportunities that fit your financial profile.

With this in mind, the experts at La Centrale des SCPI recommend opting to diversify investments across several SCPIs, thereby enhancing their impact and complementarity. The wide selection in the SCPI market offers savers a wide range of strategies.
