Guide - Stability of the Buy and Hold Method

2020-06-30

When it comes to real estate investing, there are plenty of options available –but one strategy that’s long been a favorite for many investors is the buy and hold method

There’s a reason that buy and hold investing is such a popular strategy, especially when it comes to SFR (single-family rentals). Rental investments can be tremendously profitable –they’re easier to manage and oversee than their multifamily counterparts. In some locations, these properties also tend to be in high demand and often rent for more than multifamily units. Many tenants appreciate the space and privacy that single-family homes offer and are often willing to pay more for these amenities. 

SFR makes an ideal investment for everyone from first-time investors to institutional investors alike. Thanks to recent advances in tools and tech, these investments are easier than ever to source, screen, buy, and sell. They’re also easier to manage; even long-distance or on a large scale.

When done right, a buy and hold strategy can offer tremendous rewards, including years of stable cash flow as the rental income rolls in. And when you’re in it for the long run, you’ll also experience appreciation as the property (ideally) increases in value. 

Another great thing about long-term rentals is that this type of investment gives you options. You can keep the property long-term and continue to collect rental income on up into retirement or cash out part, or even all of your SFR portfolio at any time. When it’s time to sell, you’ll have a wide market of ready buyers. SFR tends to be easier to sell than multifamily buildings, as it’s popular with investors and homebuyers alike.

  • The benefits of a buy and hold strategy - Cash flow, appreciation, tax benefits, and more.
