Here Comes Wall Street- Single Family Rental Investment

Friday, October 12th, 2012

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!

Buying Foreclosed Houses as Investments – Indianapolis Investment Guide

Advice for the Investment Property Investor Interested in Foreclosed Houses

Yes, it is true that foreclosed properties can be a great deal.  If you are looking to get into the Indianapolis investment property market you can find good deals. I would warn all but the most experienced investors to use great caution when buying a foreclosed, distressed property. If the property needs more than cosmetic work I would consider using a property investment wholesaler. Property investment wholesalers are experienced rehab experts. A good property investment wholesaler will have a professional team that renovates and remodels foreclosed properties.

Wholesalers buy in bulk and pass on the savings to you, the investor.  You can still buy foreclosed properties without the headache or backache.   Check out the listings from Indiana’s #1 Investment Property Wholesaler at:     www.indianapolisinvestment.com

Remember time is money !!!  Every minute you spend trying to rehab a property is money you are not collecting in rent.
