Great Time For Investment Rental Properties

Posted on November 3, 2015 by Kevin Morice in Real Estate Investing News

It is a great time to be a land lord and also to be expanding your rental property portfolio. Rents are on the rise nation wide and there seems to be a shift from home ownership to renters.

Investing in rental properties has always been a fantastic way to create wealth, especially generational wealth for your family. Even when you take into account the crash of ’07-’09, investors that had rental homes really only saw losses on paper. In many cases these properties are back to what they were valued at before the crash, if  not higher, depending on what part of the country the property is in.

Because of this, it can be argued that buying investment properties for rentals is safer than buying properties for fix and flip for a retail sale. There are investors that warn of another bubble, and if it happens while you are in the middle of a fix and flip, then you could suffer some great losses. While on the other hand, if you own rentals, you just keep renting the properties out and collect rent. Historically, the housing market always comes back, and when it does, that is when you can liquidate an investment property if you should so desire.

We found this great article and interview of Barry Sternlicht, CEO of Starwood Capital from CNBC and though we would share it. And if you are an investor looking for rentals in and around Atlanta check out our site, ThisCheapHouse.com for investment properties that are deeply discounted.

This is the next big property investment

 

Rent hikes are dogging tenants, but big money investors say the season of love for residential, multi-family rental properties is only getting started.

“Property is in a sweet spot, slow (economic) growth is good for us,” Barry Sternlicht, chairman and chief executive of Starwood Capital, told CNBC in an exclusive interview. “It doesn’t induce new supply and rents are going up, particularly in the U.S.”

Starwood Capital’s lyrics match its tune, with the company making big bets on multi-family properties — or properties designed to house multiple families in separate units, such as apartment buildings, duplexes and townhomes. In late October, Starwood teamed up with the Milestone Apartments REIT to buy the Landmark Apartment Trust in an all-cash $1.9 billion deal, giving the partners control of 78 apartment developments in eight U.S. states. Starwood will take 63 of the developments and Milestone the remaining 15.
