Low risk investment real estate returns are based on relatively reliable cash flows from tangible assets rather than on price appreciation subject to the whims of market psychology.
  • Attractive long run returns:  unlevered returns averaged 12% over the last 20 years
  • A natural inflation hedge: an inflation increase of 1% raises returns by 2%
  • Tax sheltered cash returns for retirement income: depreciation deductions
  • Indefinite deferral of capital gains
  • Passive tax losses reduce taxes on other passive income
  • Low correlation with other asset classes provides opportunity to reduce portfolio risk
