Why Real Estate?

CASH FLOW

Depending on the investment approach (core/core+, value-add, opportunistic), real estate investors are able to enjoy the immediate monetary benefits of cash flow. This is not seen in other investment vehicles like stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and so forth.

CASH FLOW
APPRECIATION

One of the real estate sector’s greatest competitive edge is its risk adversity and degree of certainty for value appreciation over time. Real estate values are estimated to increase on an average of 6.9%  year-over-year. While stocks are most profitable in the short-term, with diminishing returns and higher risk in the long-run.

APPRECIATION
LEVERAGE

Real Estate debt is one of the most secure and fairly inexpensive when compared to venture capital and other opportunistic funds and businesses. It also extends the opportunity to "stretch the dollar" for generational wealth building, while other asset classes like stocks, bonds, and mutual funds do not.

LEVERAGE
TAX EFFICIENCY

Real Estate investors are able to shelter their gains through an arsenal of tools including, depreciation, tax-sheltered exchanges, interest & capital expenses, and more. Depending on the investment approach, investors are able to remain tax-free anywhere between 1-10 years and beyond.
