In a recent publication, Evan Roberts of Dependable Homebuyers, discusses how real estate as an alternative investment can boost an individual’s portfolio and protect one’s long-term investment funds.
“Real estate can add diversification to an individual’s investment portfolio, resulting in increased returns and a strong overall portfolio,” Mr. Roberts explains. He added that real estate investments can be seen as an asset that are a positive addition to one’s portfolio.
Mr. Roberts has spent many years boosting Nashville’s local economy through his “We Buy Homes” company, Dependable Homebuyers. Now he is on a quest to educate investors about the untapped potential real estate presents as an alternative investment.
The housing industry is still recovering from the 2008 real estate market crash. While the real estate market in Nashville is on the upswing, experts predict a real estate recession in 2020. In spite of this prediction, Mr. Roberts believes a real estate recession is the perfect time for investors to purchase property.
The significant drop in S&P 500 leads Mr. Roberts to encourage investors to eschew traditional investments and focus on the lucrative alternative investments, particularly those in real estate. Mr. Roberts explains, “Asset-based investments are reasonable substitutes to the more traditional fixed-income investments.”
Asset-based investments include rental properties, which provide individuals with a constant cash flow, regardless of if the market is in recession or not. Cash flow is the pocket money after the month bills have been paid. Rental properties can provide ongoing passive income to investors. Here's a recent press release they published.
Dependable Homebuyers operates by purchasing homes directly from sellers without the necessity of a real estate agent. This saves the home seller money in the long-run because they don’t have to share part of the profits in commission fees.
Additionally, Dependable Homebuyers has their own home inspection process and contractors to complete repairs, thus negating the need for appraisal fees or closing costs that usually burden sellers. Homes are purchased as-is and repairs are done by the company.
Potential sellers are guaranteed to have a cash offer within 24-hours of initiating the sale and can have the cash in hand within ten business days of the transaction. Mr. Roberts believes limiting the transaction to just two parties - the buyer and the seller - allows both parties to garner more profits from the sale than they normally would using traditional methods such as a real estate agent.
As traditional investments can be hurt by inflation, real estate investments have the potential for long-term growth and a reliable source of income. That is how Dependable Homebuyers has flourished - by understanding the value of holding onto real estate investments for the long-term.
The company first began to purchase homes directly from sellers in 2012. They’ve expanded to communities as far as Williamsburg, San Antonio and Nashville by providing affordable housing options to a market oversaturated with sellers but short on buyers.
When traditional investments are in question, investors flock toward alternative investments. Mr. Roberts encourages potential investors to consider real estate as the foundation for building a diverse portfolio.
