HERE COMES WALL STREET
Let’s not let Wall Street steal all the deals!!! The push is on to turn single-family rental homes into an asset class that can be bought and sold on Wall Street. Dozens of prominent institutional investors have signaled that they plan to make big bets on single-family rental homes. Investing in single-family rental homes has long been a mainstay of building wealth, but typically only for the small investor. Not any more. The big guys are moving in fast. From billionaires like Warren Buffet to Wall Street, everyone is looking into buying turnkey single-family rental homes. So, now is the time to jump into this lucrative investment sector….. before it’s too late!
Like most investors in this sector, you probably have these two questions in mind: Why should I buy a single-family turnkey rental as an investment? Where should I buy a single-family rental home as an investment? Recent headlines answer those two key questions.
Warren Buffett on CNBC: “I’d Buy Up ‘A Couple Hundred Thousand’ Single-Family Homes If I Could”
Warren Buffett says that, along with equities, single-family rental homes are a very attractive investment right now. Appearing live on CNBC’s Squawk Box, Buffett told Becky Quick he’d buy up “a couple hundred thousand” single family homes if it were practical to do so. If held for a long period of time and purchased at low rates, Buffett says houses are even better than stocks.

The Best City To Buy Rental Houses
Based upon several lists from the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Forbes, CNN, and Sperling’s Best Places, Indianapolis, Indiana offers the best rental house investment market in the country, in large part because it is the leading urban area in terms of both job opportunities and affordable housing. Indianapolis scored high on every list. The job outlook is very optimistic, with jobs in management from numerous corporate headquarters to scientific and tech jobs. The jobless rate is below the national average.
The Bottom Line: If you’re looking for the right city in which to buy rental houses, you need to concentrate on cities that offer good job prospects, combined with affordable housing. That description fits Indianapolis to a tee!
