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!

Investment Property Beats Stocks

Income Producing Investment Property Builds Wealth and Creates Cash Flow

If you own property that produces rental income you are guaranteed a return on your money. Property investment is easy for the average investor to understand, unlike the stock market, which is complex and unpredictable. Wall Street does not care about us, the small investor. The stockbrokers make their money from large investors, those with millions to invest. Wall Street and brokerage firms ignore small investors. Professional stock advisors make their money from charging you commissions. You are paying them even if you lose money!!

I like to own single-family investment properties. I buy property that pays me!  There are property wholesalers who buy foreclosed houses and renovate them. Property wholesalers make their money on volume and repeat business. Residential property investment is easy for the average investor to understand. You buy a single-family house below market price, you rent it and collect the cash flow every month.  Your return on investment should be 10% -15%.  Eventually, you can sell it for a profit.

Of course, being a landlord is not for everyone, but a good management company can make your investment property a hassle-free experience.  They screen tenants and handle maintaince. You get the dividends every month, tax breaks, capital, and appreciation.

I invest in cities like Indianapolis, Indiana. Indianapolis is a large metropolis with a solid economic base. It is the 12th largest city in the United States. An important reason that I invest in properties in Indianapolis is that it has one of the strongest rental markets in the country. Indianapolis has an many houses for sale that meet the criteria for a good investment. I do not have to worry if half way around the world there is a crisis that will affect my investment like stock investors do.

Investing in real estate is for everyone.  I like that I have control over my properties. I do not have to worry about “creative financing”, “speculation and brokers, and bad advice. People, who can’t afford a down payment, are going to need a home to rent especially in bad times.
