As we have seen especially lately, real estate is still one of the best and safest investments, with owners enjoying impressive gains in value. 

  • Real estate historically has outperformed the S&P 500 on 20- and 30-year rolling periods.
  • Real estate offers diversification and can act as a hedge against inflation.
  • Given the housing shortage, real estate will likely provide a better return compared to today’s stock market volatility.

Over the past 10 years, Americans have started to favor real estate over other avenues of investing. A recent survey conducted by Gallup found that 41% of Americans think real estate is the best long-term investment. Real estate’s ability to generate passive income, provide a tax shelter, build equity, and offer diversification is being fully appreciated.

According to the Case-Shiller Home Price Index for the top 20 cities in the United States, home prices have grown over 17% year-to-date. If you compare that to today’s inflation rate of 7.5% and the S&P 500 year-to-date return of -8.5%, it’s obvious why real estate is a good investment right now.

Real estate can also provide you with monthly passive income through long or short term rentals. Short term rental investment is especially attractive in areas like the Temecula Valley where there are wonderful nearby attractions and pleasant weather for much of the year. Short term rentals can also bring you 3x what a long term rental can generate, with just a bit more time dedicated to management. Hiring a management firm is always an option as well.

Vince and Nicole have been running a short term rental business for more than five years and can help you identify properties with the most potential for this type of income. Beyond helping you find an ideal property, they can guide you in how to fix them up and what your options are in regards to management.
