The Benefits of Real Estate Investment.
There are many benefits to real estate investing. Well-chosen assets can lead to predictable cash flow, excellent returns, tax advantages, inflation protection, risk mitigation, and for savvy investors it can even serve as a wealth-building vehicle. We have the case studies to prove that with the right skills, depth and variety, real estate can be a lucrative investment strategy.
Why Invest with Real Estate?
From building equity and providing a passive income to lowering volatility and revitalizing local economies, here are the ways real estate can benefit you and the communities you invest in.
Attractive Relative Yields
In today’s lower interest rate environment, using leverage in real estate enables the investments to realize better returns by increased cash flow, faster equity buildup and improved capital appreciation.
Typically, commercial real estate is not correlated to stock market ebbs and flows. Historically, returns of real estate investments during periods of widespread volatility continue to fare well.
Different types of investment real estate are effective inflation hedges, as the lease structure gives the landlord flexibility to adjust rents more often.
Both mortgage interest payments and depreciation are deductible for investment real estate. Investors can also defer their gains by structuring 1031 exchanges .
Investing in real estate provides a means for community re-development, enhancement, and economic development. A commitment to bettering the communities we live, work and play in each and every day takes the commitment of a few able investors while improving and revitalizing areas of need guaranteeing healthier futures .
Is Real Estate Right for You?
Despite the benefits, real estate investing is not without risk. When compared to other types of investments, there are a few drawbacks as well. One of the main ones being lack of liquidity. It can be relatively difficult, especially when compared to a stock or bond, to convert a real estate asset into cash or vice versa. Real estate transactions take time, sometimes months just to close. Our sale-leaseback financing program can help unlock equity and raise cash quickly for real estate owners and offers many of its own financial benefits.
Still, real estate is a distinct asset class that can enhance an investor’s portfolio. By itself, real estate can provide cash flow, tax breaks, equity, competitive risk-adjusted returns, and hedge against inflation. When used to diversity a portfolio, it can help lower volatility.
