Recession-Proof Your Investment: A Guide to Passive Investing in Real Estate

Embrace The Upcoming Recession With Smart Investments

The stock market’s unpredictable nature can be worrisome, especially in the face of a looming recession. If you’re searching for a secure, high-return investment platform that can thrive even in a recession, this article is for you. Join us as Nate Armstrong, founder of HomeInvest.com, and I, Steve Warner, Chief Investment Officer, walk you through the world of passive real estate investment. This isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme. It’s about nurturing a secure financial future for you and your family while positively impacting the community.

Key Factors for Smart Passive Investments

In our previous discussion, we talked about the essential factor of choosing the right states for investing. Today, we delve into the next vital aspect of real estate investment - the class of property and tenants.

The Art of Selecting Property Class

The class of property you invest in directly influences your investment returns. Think of it in terms of cars: luxury cars like Maseratis or high-end Mercedes equate to Type-A properties that demand premium rents and fare well during economic booms. However, they’re also prone to the whims of the market and the neighborhood’s desirability.

Meanwhile, the blue-collar, middle-class properties represent the reliable, middle-of-the-road cars like Toyota Camrys or Ford Tauruses. These properties provide steady returns and are more resilient during economic downturns. And then you have the lower-class, government-subsidized housing, which, like budget cars, come with their own unique set of benefits and challenges.

Optimal Investment Class During Downturns

In times of recession, the middle-class properties or what we term as B or C class, perform best. These properties, like the reliable Toyota Camrys, continue to deliver solid returns without any drop. We’ve seen that during the last economic crash, our rents grew as people migrated from their single-family homes into our buildings. Thus, investing in B and C class properties ensures stable returns even during economic downturns.

The Risks of Government Subsidized Housing

It might seem that investing in government-subsidized housing is a good idea during a downturn. However, these investments come with a different set of challenges and goals. Such properties tend not to appreciate much in value and provide limited cash flow. Plus, the maintenance costs often run high due to more frequent property damage.

On the other hand, middle-class properties offer predictable cash flow and appreciate significantly during good economic times. Plus, they attract tenants who value the neighborhood, leading to better property maintenance and quality referrals.

Why We Feel It's Our Duty To Multiply Your Investment

The Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25), describes a wealthy man who entrusts his three stewards with varying amounts of money, or "talents," before leaving on a journey.

The first steward receives five talents (money), the second steward receives two talents, and the third steward receives one talent, all with the same instructions to invest it.

The first two servants invest their money and double the amount given to them, while the third steward buries his talent in the ground out of fear of losing it.

Upon the wealthy man's return, he is pleased with the first two servants - they doubled his money. He praises them and rewards them with more money to invest.

He rebukes and punishes the third servant for his inaction.

If you're an accredited investor looking for your First Steward, book a call with us to see how we can help you.
