The Baby Boomers are here and there are more on the way. The population of seniors age 85 and older is the fastest growing demographic in the country today.
It is expected to increase by 300 percent over the next 20 years. That is a huge problem and an even bigger opportunity.
They are going to have to bring somebody into their home to provide that care or they are going to have to move them to an assisted living facility.
Own the real estate and lease it to the operator of the RAL business.
Two risks associated with single-family home rentals are misbehaving tenants and smaller returns. Bad tenants can add a lot of wear and tear on a property; everything from broken windows to dissecting their motorcycle in the family room.
Typically a lease term is one year. After one year, the misbehaving tenant moves out and your property may be empty for a month while you are repairing the damage.
With a RAL operator, they will want a long term lease of five years or more. That’s a long term low impact tenant, who may be willing to pay a higher rent. Up to twice the “regular” rent because of the income they will generate. Now you have stable, well behaved tenants and a higher return.
Convert the home for use as a RAL and sell it to a RAL operator.
This type of a home can be worth $50,000 or $100,000 more when sold to a RAL operator. If you acquire the license to operate and start the business, you can sell the business for $50,000 to $300,000 or more in addition to the real estate.
Own the home and own the business.
A RAL business can generate $10,000 a month or more in net income. That business will have a value of two to three times the annual net income.
Can my IRA invest in a newly formed entity that will invest in real estate?
Can I use funds from my IRA to renovate property to sell it at a higher price?
