The great financial crisis resulted in the worst annual performance of the S&P 500 and is a reason many people are looking to guard their wealth and strive toward their financial goals, as well as setting up additional streams of income.
Working for long hours and picking up side gigs is one of the options, but investing in multifamily real estate may also be an attractive and smart solution for busy professionals. Investing in multifamily apartments provides a steady stream of rental income to individuals, along with the potential for appreciation.
In 2023, many factors will make investing in apartments attractive for busy professionals. Though, it may be a tricky task to find a good deal and put all the pieces together. As an example, the high-interest rates created a disconnect between buyers and sellers. To counter high-interest rates, investors can focus on loan assumptions, and fixed-rate debt, and invest in markets with strong rental demand.
Let us look at the ways to counter high-interest rates in 2023!
Creative Deal Structures
Being creative is the key when it comes to finding deals with local real estate agents, brokers, and wholesalers. They provide great leads and help you stay updated on new opportunities as they become available. Additionally, forming relationships with other investors allows you to bring ideas to the table that you may not have considered on your own — such as joint ventures or syndications — which could lead to unique investment opportunities that wouldn’t be available otherwise. Investors who can leverage creative structures like seller financing, loan assumptions, etc will have the advantage in 2023.
It is significant to note that the cost of capital is not limited to loans. Equity structures need to shift as well. Investing in syndications needs cordial relationships with limited partners. Due to current economic conditions, investors may need to expand their sources of capital. Crowdfunding can be one of the options that investors can consider to expand access to capital beyond their close social network.
It’s important to assess the risks involved before getting involved in any real estate opportunity. Risk can be measured by researching the market thoroughly, and understanding the macroeconomics of the metropolitan statistical area (MSA), along with key demographic trends in the submarket.
Certain things to be kept in mind while evaluating a property are rental rates, vacancy rates, and rental trends for properties in the area. It is suggested to take note of all the red flags like high vacancy rates or rapidly declining rental rates and collections issues. To get a clear understanding of the property and market, it is critical to get in touch with a property manager that is an expert in the market that you are looking at. This will help you to devise a business plan to optimize the performance of the property.
A thorough inspection of the property will help you to understand any potential repair costs or renovations that may be necessary down the road. It is important to consult team members like attorneys, contractors, and insurance agents to help you protect the investment in the event that an unforeseen issue arises.
If floating rate debt is used for an investment property, making a mistake with any of the aforementioned topics could be costly.
At the end of the day, only you can determine whether real estate investing is right for you. As a starting point, think through your personal circumstances and the aforementioned considerations. Know that every investment strategy will be different, that each investment strategy has its own pros/cons, and that all investing carries a risk so as you continue to gauge whether you should invest in real estate, do your proper due diligence.
