Real estate investing in Chicago is a smart way to put your money to work for you by purchasing local properties that can increase in value, and/or potentially provide a return right away. Because real estate can appreciate significantly, it is often one of the best ways to increase your funds. Investing in apartment complexes or other rentals means you can start generating immediate cash flow.
People decide to buy investment property in Chicago for a variety of reasons, whether they do it through a real estate investment partnership, a real estate investment group or as limited liability companies. The most common reasons are:
Portfolio Diversification. Real estate is less volatile than stocks, bonds, ETFs, REITs and other daily traded asset classes. It also acts as an inflation hedge as rents and property values increase against fixed mortgage payments.
Income and Appreciation. Real estate investors benefit from a stable income stream, plus they reap appreciation gains at refinance and sale.
The Magic of Leverage. Unlike other asset classes, banks will lend you money to buy an investment property. Abracadabra — you can build your net worth using the bank’s money!
Tax-Free Cash Flow. Depreciation and mortgage interest deductions offset operating income, often achieving tax-free cash flow.
Abundant Opportunities in Chicago. With its growing population and economy, Chicago is a world-class city with a diverse and complex real estate market. Our neighborhoods are continually evolving, which means a large pool of potential properties in which to invest. Knowledgeable professionals can find a wealth of real estate just ripe for renovation and other value-add projects. The key is knowing the trends, such as multi-family housing and marketing to millennials, as well as being able to spot a diamond in the rough.
