With financial information storming the internet, many people get mislead on what appreciating assets are. Putting it simply, an appreciating asset is any asset whose value is increasing, or has the potential to increase in the future.

Popular examples of appreciating assets:

  • real estate
  • real estate investment trust
  • stocks
  • bonds,
  • private equity,
  • savings accounts
  • commodities

Of course, these are just some of the most popular examples of appreciating assets that can grow substantially in value as time passes.

Conclusion: Guarantee

There is no guarantee that any asset you buy or invest in will increase considerably in the future, even if it's an appreciating asset. Even though no one can foretell the future, the assets mentioned above have strong potential in generating an additional revenue source.
