SFR Roundup #4 - Predictions Heading Into 2020

SFR Roundup #4 - Predictions Heading Into 2020

December 16, 2019

Welcome back to the SFR Roundup with Noel Christopher. In today’s episode, Noel breaks down what he sees for the real estate market heading into 2020. So what do you need to know? 

Here’s what you can expect on today’s episode: 

  • Availability and current inventory for single-family homes. Baby boomers will cycle out of homeownership and millennials will cycle in, but what does that mean for investors?
  • The build to rent market is still huge because of the demand of single-family rentals
  • Homebuilders are working really hard to provide affordable homes, specifically for millennials

Noel also covers the unique opportunity for the small to mid-sized home builders to get into the single-family rental space and to start selling to investors. Investors are gravitating towards the newer construction homes because of the mitigated risk with maintenance and condition of the home. Noel predicts the homebuilders that do this as a part of their model in 2020 are going to do great because they can pre-sell their inventory in advance.

SFR Roundup #3 - Health of the Housing Market, Economy, and Demand for Affordable Housing

SFR Roundup #3 - Health of the Housing Market, Economy, and Demand for Affordable Housing

November 22, 2019

Welcome back to the SFR Roundup with Noel Christopher. In today’s episode, Noel breaks down more recent housing news and the stability of the housing market. 

Tune in for a breakdown and deep dive of: 

  • The housing starts, what that means for the single-family rental market 
  • What price fluctuation actually means for single-family investors
  • Affordable housing and the demand
  • Why investors are moving away from the “Fix and Flip” method and turning to the “Buy to Rent” strategy

He specifically breaks down a few articles we’ve seen in recent news discussing how investors are leveraging foreclosures into their buy-to-rent strategy. The median price of a new home is down, but a decline in home prices isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Noel says this is just builders supplying more affordable homes. He also talks about investors who are looking at markets where they see an opportunity for and a demand for housing. If there is a decline/recession, single-family rents don’t go down the same ratio as the values. Overall, Noel is pointing out that the housing market is healthy, regardless of affordability issues.

Episode 08: The Powerful Benefits of a 1031 Exchange

November 9, 2019

Investing in income property offers a number of exciting benefits –something that’s helped to make it one of the most popular investments today. From immediate cash flow to the long-term rewards of equity growth and appreciation –income property can prove to be a rewarding investment.

When you’re ready to sell your investment property, you can roll the proceeds from the sale over into another property in what’s known as a 1031 exchange, which means that any profit that you make from the property sale won’t be subject to capital gains tax, but can instead be deferred –a valuable tax benefit that you can use to grow your portfolio. 

So what qualifies for a 1031 exchange? In this episode, Kevin Ortner –CEO of Renters Warehouse; and Joe Vesey from First American Exchange, breakdown the complexities of a 1031 exchange. 

In today’s episode, Kevin and Joe discuss: 

  • What exactly IS a 1031 exchange
  • The process of beginning a 1031 exchange and the rules you need to follow
  • What types of investments qualify for at 1031 exchange
