Is Rental Real Estate a Good Investment During High (and Rising) Inflation?
With a volatile and highly unpredictable stock market, rising interest rates, and increased inflation, investors hare having a tough time deciding what to do and where the best place is to move (or keep) their money invested.
One option, though, could be to start – or add to – a residential real estate property portfolio. During times of high inflation, rental real estate could benefit you in a couple of different ways. First, rental houses (or apartment units) can provide a steady income stream – which also allows you to pay down a mortgage balance (if applicable) using someone else’s money.
In times of high inflation and rising interest rates, you may also be able to increase the price on the rent you charge. Further, the pool of potential tenants for your home(s) and/or unit(s) tends to expand when interest rates rise, as the price of obtaining a mortgage goes up, forcing many people to continue to rent rather than buy. As inflation rises, the value of your investment property(ies) may also go up. This, in turn, can increase the equity that you have in your real estate portfolio.
