Rental properties offer investment returns in five different ways. Not all properties offer all five, so you’re going to want to understand each one and with more inventory going on the market everyday, now may be the time purchase one.

  1. APPRECIATION: An increase in value over time. Predictable appreciation is one of the biggest perks of real estate investing.
  2. TAX BENEFITS: Write off general expenses and perceived losses on the property to end up with tax-free income or even a return.  
  3. CASH FLOW: The money you make each month after expenses are paid
  4. EQUITY BUILT THROUGH MORTGAGE PAYOFF: Your mortgage payments are being reduced through the income of your tenants’ monthly rental payments.
  5. HEDGE AGAINST INFLATION: Investigate a fixed-rate loan while property values increase over the years.
