Here Comes Wall Street- Single Family Rental Investment

Friday, October 12th, 2012


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!

Investment Property- New Foreclosure Regulations New Regulations Make It Easier for Investors to Buy Foreclosed Property

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

As of February 1, 2010, HUD is waiving its 90-day anti-flipping rule for FHA financing. In today’s market, FHA research finds that acquiring, rehabilitating, and reselling these properties to prospective homeowners or investors often takes less than 90 days. This should encourage investors to buy foreclosed properties.

The policy change will permit buyers to use FHA-insured financing to purchase HUD-owned properties, bank-owned properties, or properties resold through private sales. This will allow homes to resell as quickly as possible, helping to stabilize real estate prices and to revitalize neighborhoods and communities.

This is good news for property investors. Investment property that has been bought by a wholesaler and rehabbed is a great investment. For most investment property owners, it makes sense to buy already rehabbed houses that provide immediate cash flow and equity. The key is to buy houses below market price in order to ensure positive cash flow. Rehabbing a distressed property is best left up to the experts who have the experience.

Check out rehabbed properties in Indianapolis, the best investment property market in the country. For information on below- market priced, rehabbed housing, with positive cash flow and photos, please go to:

Buying Property Out of Town

“No Place Like Home” sounds good but for many investors it is not possible to buy in their home state or city.  Even foreclosed and distressed properties in some areas are overvalued and too expensive for investors to earn positive cash flow and get a high return on investment.  Like so many successful investment property buyers you may have to look  out of state  for the best deals.

Indianapolis has always been affordable for investors. There are an abundance of single-family homes available at the right price for investors. Demand for rental houses has continued to grow.  An Indianapolis investment will provide cash flow and significant instant equity. Many fully remodeled investment houses are being offered well below market price, which means you start collecting positive cash flow right from the get-go.

For more information and photos check out these remodeled, below market value houses at: Investors will be glad to see the numbers work for them!

Advice for Investing in Investment Properties – The Single Family Home


Investing in income producing investment properties can create personal wealth and financial security for the average investor.  No investment during the last 26 years has been consistently better for the average investor than single family rental homes.   Why?  Think about it.  The tenant is paying off the loan, while you, the investor, get the cash flow, increasing equity and tax breaks.  Sound like a win-win for the investor?  Well, it sure is!!   I prefer to invest in single family rental properties because the return is greater and the initial investment is less than multifamily units.  No condo associations or fees.  The return on investment (ROI) can be greater than 15%!!   Not bad, is it?   I know that if I eventually want to sell my investment I have greater resale options.  A single family home can be sold to another investor, a tenant, a new homeowner or even leased with the option to buy.

When I buy a single family home as an investment property I look for instant cash flow, location, equity and condition.  I look to invest in cities with a historically stable economy, a large number of residents who rent, and lots of available underpriced homes.  For my money, I find Indianapolis fits these criteria like no other American city.  The Indianapolis real estate investment market is a perfect fit for investors looking for cash flow properties.   All you need is a property wholesaler specializing in selling to investors. Wholesalers buy and rehab foreclosed and distressed properties and provide you with a turnkey investment.  Check out the properties and investment opportunities at

Now is the best time to be looking for investment properties. Single-family rental homes are a great property investment. These investment properties provide cash flow, tax benefits and equity. Residential rental properties have shown an average return of 10-15% annually, which is equal to the historic return on stocks. Investing in property is a way to secure your future from the roller coaster rides of the stock markets. Buying rental properties remains one of the best ways for middle-income families to build wealth. Housing prices are low, interest rates remain at record lows, and demand for rental homes is increasing. Arthur C. Nelson, director of the University of Utah’s Metropolitan Research Center predicts that there will be far more renters in the future. This will lead to a greater demand for quality rental properties in many areas. This great demand for rental houses will assure that rents continue to rise.


The City of Indianapolis is the perfect place to invest in rental property.  Indianapolis already has a large demand for single-family rentals, which will only continue to increase in the future. As rates rise and fears of inflation and strict mortgage regulation increase, homeownership will be more difficult.  This is why demand for rental homes will increase and rental income will continue to rise.  Invest your money wisely in an investment that will not crash when Wall Street gets greedy again.  Put your money into one of the few investments that gets even better when times get tough – - residential investment property.  Bottom line: everyone needs a place to live.
