The following was written by guest blogger Rebecca McLean, Executive Director of the National Real Estate Investors Association.
At National REIA (Real Estate Investors Association) we try to keep our fingers on the pulse of housing to determine what areas might be developing and what areas might be turning stagnant.
As an association, our members are both “transactional” investors and “buy and hold” investors. We believe there is great value in both strategies but as we all know, timing can be everything!
I currently find optimism with many investors in both camps. We know and continue to warn that the market is changing and current trends cannot last forever, but for the immediate future both the rental market and in most places, the rehab-to-retail market, will continue to be fruitful… if you pay close attention to the niches that need to be filled.
The rental market over the last several years has been amazing!
Many factors have led to this strategy becoming one of the hottest for real estate investors. Millennials are just beginning to invest in homes. At first, we saw an increase in multifamily occupancy as the under-30 crowd sought out apartments as their first living-on-their-own option but, over time, investors with single-family rentals and duplex/quads have also benefited from the increase in this rental market.
