Do You Want To Invest In Real Estate?

Real estate investing is an attractive option for those looking to diversify their investment portfolios, generate income, reduce their tax burden, and benefit from long-term capital appreciation.

However, before embarking on your real estate investment journey, it is crucial to establish your investment goals, evaluate your resources, and determine your desired time commitment. Also, consider your risk tolerance, time horizon, and financial objectives. These factors will play a significant role in deciding whether investing in real estate fits your portfolio.

How To Get Started with Real Estate Investing

Once you’re ready to start investing in real estate, select an approach that aligns with your goals. There are two primary approaches to real estate investing: active investing and passive investing. Understanding the differences between these two methods is crucial to determining the best strategy for your investment goals, time availability, and risk tolerance.

Active Real Estate Investing

Active real estate investing involves direct participation in the management and day-to-day operation of the property. Investors often take on the roles of landlords, property managers, or real estate developers that buy and flip properties. This hands-on approach requires significant time, knowledge, and effort.

Passive Real Estate Investing

Passive investing generates real estate income without directly involving the investor in property management. Instead, they invest through private real estate investment funds, REITs, or crowdfunding platforms. Passive investing offers real estate exposure without the responsibilities and time commitment of managing properties.

Why Invest in Real Estate?

Earn better returns by investing in multifamily real estate. Investors who diversify into multifamily real estate outperform those who don’t. Direct multifamily real estate has outperformed the S&P by more than 60% since 2000. Using the “20% rule” where 20% of your portfolio is invested in alternatives like multifamily real estate helps earn greater returns and reduce volatility.

Real estate return data is from the NCREIF Property Index (NPI Index), while S&P return data is from Yahoo Finance. Real estate return data should not be used to estimate returns of 37th Parallel Properties investments. While the NCREIF Property Index (NPI Index) represents the total return for private commercial real estate properties (across multiple asset types) held for investment purposes, all 37th Parallel Properties investments are private commercial multifamily investments and can vary in performance.

Why Multifamily Real Estate Properties?

Investing in multifamily apartments offers numerous advantages for investors seeking to diversify their portfolios and generate stable income. As an investment in the basic need of shelter, multifamily apartments are always in demand. The economies of scale when managing multiple units leads to lower per-unit expenses while providing a consistent cash flow. Multifamily investing offers lower volatility and diversification with a low correlation to traditional investment assets like stocks or bonds.

37th Parallel’s approach to non-recourse lending, LLC structured investments, and robust insurance coverage protects investors from the legal and financial exposure of active ownership. Plus, these properties also allow for considerable tax advantages for investors.

“As a long-time realtor, I tried for years to find investments to create passive income for my retirement. I’ve invested in single family homes only to experience negative cash flow month after month while dealing with all the hassles of being a landlord. By investing with 37th Parallel I’ve finally been able to create a positive cash flow and passive income. I’m still investing in real estate, which I truly believe in, but I don’t have to manage the properties myself. Since realtors don’t have 401(k)‘s or pensions, it’s up to us to create our own retirement income. I only wish I’d found 37th Parallel years ago. I’m very happy with my investments with them so far and will continue to invest with them for my future.
