Hard Money Facts

Should you invest in SFR rental properties as interest rates continue to rise?

Rising interest rates and inflation shouldn’t deter you from acquiring long-term rental properties.

In the current market, it can be difficult to determine whether now is the right time to acquire long-term rental properties. Interest rates are still on the rise. According to Bank Rate, the current average rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage is 7.04%, up 12 basis points since September 30, 2022. While inflation appears to be leveling out on some fronts, the buying power of average American families cannot withstand the high cost of money today. This is forcing many Americans to step back and assess the feasibility of buying a home right now.

So, why is it still the right time for the SFR investor to acquire long-term single-family rental properties?

After years of low interest rates, it seems 2022 is the year we’ll see them on the rise. With the Federal Reserve planning to embark on a series of interest-rate hikes this year beginning in March, real estate investors are preparing for these predictions to potentially become reality.

Fortunately, smart investors work from a strategic point of view, and many apply the BRRRR model, which helps in situations like these. To refresh, the BRRRR (Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance, Repeat) Method is a real estate investment strategy that involves buying and rehabbing a property, renting it out, and refinancing the leased up rental property over a 30-year term at a fixed rate of interest. This Method provides an opportunity for passive income and a diverse rental portfolio. If BRRRR Method is one of your investment strategies, now is the time to lock in for the long-term.

2022 Goal Setting for Your Investment Property Strategies (Part 1)

Posted by Residential Capital Partners on Jan 21, 2022 5:50:39 PM

Whether you're beginning this new year with goals to start investing in single-family real estate or you’re a seasoned investor who wants to continue expanding your single-family rental portfolio, it's essential to set actionable goals, measure progress, and seek the right guidance along the way.

 

 

Why Goals Matter

Goals are very different from New Year's resolutions. While resolutions may be well-intentioned, they are often thrown together without a plan or willingness to sacrifice what’s required for success. Statistic Brain analyzed New Year's resolutions and found that just 8% of people achieve their New Year's resolutions while a whopping 92% fail completely.

Goals, on the other hand, are usually more well-thought-out, and come with action items attached to them. Those action items help frame the decisions and direct the resources applied to accomplishing the goal. They are the milestones to the roadmap which leads to the accomplished goal!
