Have you tried walking in the bank and asking for a loan lately? If you have then you probably already know that the banks have their funds locked up tighter than Fort Knox these days. Lenders are only willing to lend money to people with a lot of leverage or an outstanding credit score. Sure, there are other means of borrowing, but these loans are usually short-term loans that provide little relief. Being able to borrow against rental provide will provide you with much more leverage than a car or similar assets.

Diversification With A High Appreciation

When it comes to investing one of the first lessons that you will quickly learn is to diversify. This allows you the benefit of lowering your risk by investing in a variety of markets. This simply goes back to the old theory of not putting all your eggs in one basket. Well, there is simply no better way to diversify your portfolio than by investing in real estate. Real estate is pretty much its own market and the major asset is the property. In addition to this, the rental property comes with a high appreciation. Despite the latest crash it is safe to assume that real estate is a safer investment when looking at the long-term side of things. Just remember that when you are investing in real estate, you always want to ask yourself what is a good cap rate for rental property. Investing in a property that isn’t going to offer an ROI will simply be a lost cause.

Tax Relief

No one likes tax time. This is especially true if you are one of those unfortunate individuals that have to pay in every year. Well, if you own rental properties, you might be able to find some shelter. In fact, owning real estate can provide one with a number of tax deductions. For instance, did you know that when you make repairs on your rental properties, you can have that amount deducted from your taxes? If your tenant’s hot water heater goes out and you have to replace it, you can save the receipt and use it as a tax deduction. And, this is just the first of many tax shelters that rental property can offer.
