Why Multifamily Investing Is and Will Continue to Be Profitable
- January 12, 2021
We know everyone is tired (and frustrated) at hearing the words “COVID”, “coronavirus,” and “pandemic.” That said… this global emergency has brought many issues to the forefront, and financial concerns certainly lead the pack. From job security to a secure retirement, it can feel as if everything – literally everything – is up in the air. However, one of the benefits of investing in multifamily properties is that it can provide stability – and profitability – in the face of uncertainty.
Of course, it’s not all COVID all the time. In most markets, and certainly during times of economic turmoil, investing in multifamily simply makes sense.
Why Multifamily Investing Is Profitable
A few reasons to include multifamily properties in your investment portfolio:
The American Dream has undergone major evolution in recent years. Not everyone wants to buy a home, and those who do are delaying the decision. There is greater demand for multifamily housing in this demographic, as well as other populations, including young families, single professionals, lower-income households, and retirees.
Investing in multifamily means you are not reliant on one tenant; instead, you are collecting rents from multiple tenants. This boosts cash flow, but it also makes it more stable.
Again, compared to investing in a single-tenant property, opting for multifamily spreads your risk and diversifies your income. Even if one tenant decides to move out, you have others to supply income. Further, if you market your property effectively, you should have a waiting list to minimize vacancies.
Demand for multifamily housing is high among renters; it’s also in demand among investors. When you have a property, it is easier to sell and recoup a solid profit.
