Are Rental Homes an I.D.E.A.L. Investment?
There are a lot of investment options available for us today. Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, gold, silver, annuities, etc can all be a part of a solid retirement plan.
Some people may claim that I am biased, and maybe that is so. However, I firmly believe that rental homes are an I.D.E.A.L. investment and should be included in every retirement plan. Over the next several post I will discuss why this is so and give you some ideas to help you with your real estate investment planning.
Keep in mind that there are no promised returns. I think the examples that I give are realistic but please consult with your own investment and tax advisers.

Real Estate has long term, fixed rate, amortizing, financing readily and commonly available. Other investments do not allow you to finance the purchase. Some people would prefer to pay cash and avoid the risk of having debt on their rental property. That is good and admirable and I would recommend it if you are financially able. However, for some people it is just not an option or they are willing to take the risk of the debt. I would contend that if you are truly investing for the long term and have sufficient cash reserves to make payments during vacancy that the risk is really very minimal.
Even if you are paying cash as your investment strategy, the ready availability of long term financing makes it easy for you to sell the home when the time comes.
