Multifamily real estate generates secure, stable returns. This comes from market rents, professional management and high demand.
Baby Boomers are heading into retirement and are more likely to rent than own, and Millennials are less and less likely to own a home, due to student debt and committing to 30 more years of debt.
Multifamily real estate has excellent tax shelters and advantages. Through depreciation and cost segregation, most if not all income can be tax free. Consult your CPA on these benefits.
You can multiply your money through Multifamily financing and forced appreciation. By acquiring a property and increasing it's income, you increase it's value. You then can take your cash out of the deal, and reinvest that money, while still owning the property. Your $1 is working two jobs for you!
Multifamily financing is at a lower cost, and easier to obtain than normal single family homes. This means it's easy to leverage into large properties, and usually has the lowest APR, meaning more cash flow.
