What Makes Investing in Real Estate the Best!
Of the four asset classes, traditional business, real estate, stocks & commodities, real estate has proven to be one of the best. And investment in apartments or multifamily is the smartest among all categories of real estate. Real Estate has been for centuries a proven investment strategy for realizing high returns, security and leverage. This strategy dates back to the founding of the United States. John Jacob Astor became America’s first millionaire through investing in real estate in Manhattan and throughout New York City area. And the fundamental reasons that make real estate investing the #1 choice remain as true today as they were in the 1800’s.
Cash Flow via Passive Income
Instant cash flow plus steady and reliable passive income is one of the hallmarks of investing in real estate. With our investment model, there’s no waiting 2, 5 or more years to be profitable or monetize a traditional business. Unlike most stocks, which pay little to no dividends, real estate is defined by its ability to pay out regular cash distributions. This is an extremely important trait, as it allows investors to have greater patience through recessions, as well as give greater security in covering problems that may come up along the way. With most stocks, the only way to realize any income is to sell the stock. With commercial real estate, income is achieved from the cash-flow of the property, without the need to sell. Equally important, commercial real estate has traditionally had the highest returns among all forms of investment. The majority of stocks that pay dividends, on average, return 3% distributions annually. CDs, Treasuries and Bonds perform even worse, paying as little as 1%. Alternatively, it is not uncommon for investment real estate to provide annual returns of 10% or more.
While cash flow is a major advantage of commercial real estate investing, the ability to create massive wealth through appreciation is an even bigger advantage. It is not uncommon for investment properties to increase significantly in value over time. In fact, investment real estate has proven to be one of the greatest hedges to inflation of all investment types. One of the primary reasons is that rents typically increase with inflation, which serves to increase the real estate’s value. In addition, inflation can drive up the cost of new construction, thereby increasing the value of existing properties.
This is one of the most important reasons that real estate has proven to be an excellent investment type over time. Most investment real estate is not purchased with 100% cash, but rather with a much lower cash down payment, ranging from 10% – 30% with the balance financed by a mortgage. This enables investors to purchase investment real estate that exceeds their available capital. Again, this strategy was used by John Jacob Astor to corner the market on Manhattan real estate. Additionally, the values of commercial real estate are very rational, based on stable rents, while stocks are often irrational and can experience significant fluctuations in value. Leverage in real estate enables investors to create much greater financial gains than any other form of investment.

As one of life’s 3 basic necessities (food, clothing & shelter) multifamily investment in real estate meets this basic need for shelter (e.g. apartments and condominiums). Historically, the strong and perpetual demand for shelter provides investors with one of the most reliable forms of financial security. Further, the National Apartment Association’s magazine UNITS headline article of September 2014 was titled “2014 Will Likely Go Down As The Formal Beginning of the Shift To A Renter-Based Society”
