Why Invest in Multi-Family?
- Positive cash flow where rent covers all expenses
- Consistent revenue
- Controlled Appreciation
- Single loan for multiple units
- Constant demand from renters
Perfect for the First Time Investor
Multi-family properties are an ideal bridge for people looking to invest in commercial properties. There are various ways that new investors can purchase multi-unit properties and secure financing. For instance, if a property is 4 units or less, a borrower can utilize a regular home loan for financing. In addition to this, owners have the option to manage their own properties, which would help increase cash flow. Have a rental home that’s not going anywhere, trade it for an apartment building!
Ideal for Seasoned Investors
Apartments are optimal properties for experienced investors because of a clear and controlled path to growing one’s portfolio. Multi-family properties are unique because of the number of tenants in a single building, so rent increases have a multiplying effect, which forces appreciation. Through a 1031 exchange, investors can tap into this appreciation and purchase a replacement property that is larger and generates more revenue.
