Your Uninvested Dollars Lose Value
Because of the way inflation works, $100 today (for example) will be worth less than $100 in ten years unless it is positioned to grow in value. A real-world example of this the rising cost of a gallon of gasoline. Twenty years ago it was at about $1.00 per gallon; today it sits at about $4.00.
Storing cash in a bank is just like hiding it under a mattress. It doesn’t appreciate; it actually loses value. With inflation factored in, that cash is actually losing value each year. Even if you’ve stashed your cash in an interest-bearing account or in a CD, interest rarely (if ever) keeps pace with inflation.
BUT, Real Estate Keeps Pace!
Real estate is one of the few investments that reacts in proportion to inflation, making it an ideal way to grow your wealth. Inflation actually causes housing values and rents to go up, not down. Property appreciates, or increases in value, resulting in a smart investment with years of consistent profit projected – even with calculations regarding the effects of wear and tear on the property, property taxes, insurance, and other expenses. When done right, investing in single family residences can protect your assets from the ravages of inflation.
Of course, it’s not enough to simply buy rental properties. Your investment needs to be managed. The key to profitable investment in the single-family residential rental market is having the right property management team working for you. At Real Property Management, we understand what it takes to become a successful real estate investor. Our unique approach to property management will not only protect your investment but also maximize the value of each of your properties for years to come.
