Every balanced portfolio should contain some real estate. 

Real estate is ultimately a limited resource. There are only so many acres of land and the population keeps growing. That means that the supply is shrinking and the demand is increasing. While you will see ups and downs in home values, over the years owning property has historically been a very wise investment.

Here are a few more reasons to invest in real estate:

    • Rental yield - This is the percentage yield from direct rental income, it and can be calculated as either gross or net. 
    • Appreciation - Rental properties normally appreciate in value with inflation. Increased value can mean sale and reinvestment in higher value properties, or provide an equity line of credit to use for other investments. This is the second, and a historically proven, value component of real estate investment return.
    • Inflation-proof investment - Rents usually increase with inflation, while mortgage payments on the property remain stable. This increases cash flow, without the increased expense for holding the property. When inflation goes up, it can also mean more renters as mortgages become more expensive for average consumers. More renters increase demand, so rents can escalate.
    • Leverage - Using leverage, while being careful to buy properties with good rental yields, provides greater returns. Using $100,000 in leveraged assets to purchase three properties with down payments, instead of one for $100,000 cash, can greatly increase returns. Of course, all leverage involves risk, so the successful investor must understand how leverage impacts their real estate investments.
    • Paying down loans - Amortization, or paying down loans, frees up more investment resources to increase leverage. Some investors use increased equity in one property to free up funds to invest in others.
    • Property improvement for equity - Many investors intentionally purchase properties at a value price, because they lack certain features or could use improvements. They have calculated that the value of the improvements will exceed the cost, resulting in an immediate increase in equity. We can help you get more information on ARV, or after repair value.
