So you are becoming savvy about investing your hard-earned money and are looking at placing it in real estate as a venture capitalist. Your particular interest is apartment complexes and buildings but you don’t know all the details. Well, this blog is a guide that should help answer some of the basic questions about investing in apartments.
It goes without saying that this is an exceptionally large investment and commitment from several perspectives, including financial and personal. The buyer of the apartment complex tends to also have a hand in its day-to-day operations, which can be time-consuming, if not an altogether career choice. If you have invested in multi-home properties and now move to apartment complexes, it will quickly become obvious that this requires more time and physical involvement.
The advantages can be big. The accumulation of rent from the large number of tenants makes it easier to pay down on the mortgage of the property. If you’re careful, you can develop an expansive portfolio of assets. Too, leveraging has hardly been better. The cost of capital is not as high as it has been and lenders now offer a wide assortment of loan products that make the prospect of owning an apartment complex more alluring. Then, of course, there is the option of paying down on the principal once you have locked in a loan that will likely be a long-term debt.
There are other obvious advantages to purchasing an apartment complex as well. Cash flow is a component of the apartment building scenario. If you invest your money in stocks, there is little possibility of cash flow unless the stock pays dividends. Owning an apartment complex will provide a steady stream of income and many experts believe it is a more stable place to put your money than stocks. The reason for this is that an apartment complex is a tangible asset. In most cases, its value will also never drop to zero which is another plus for this type of investment.
