3 Major Reasons to Invest In Single Family Residences

A recent U.S. News and World Report article started with this phrase, “A rental investment can be a safe haven in a volatile market.”

According to U.S. News and World Report, here are the 3 reasons why investment real estate can be a safe haven for you:

Reason #1 – 2019 Outlook is Strong

The article mentions that housing demand is high and supply is still constrained, especially when it comes to the type of homes DFY specializes in: Single-family residences and middle-income neighborhoods where entry level housing is in high demand. The article mentions that even during the Great Recession, single family rentals did not have a down year in occupancy or rental rates.

Reason #2 – Housing is bolstered by Low Unemployment

The rental market is driven by employment and interest rates. Low unemployment usually means stronger housing and when combined with low interest rates, it is a perfect combination for real estate investors. Even if there is an interest rate hike in the near future, that increase bodes well for real estate investors. An interest rate hike may price new home buyers out, which means an increase in rental home demand, which further secures your investment dollars.

Reason #3 – Renter Profiles Are Shifting

Renting has become the new norm, there are multiple reasons for this. Check out the reasons in the full U.S. News article. In short, all signs point to single-family rentals as the right place to be investing right now.
