The appeal of single-family rentals 

  • Consistent Income: Tenant longevity can be longer for rental homes than for apartments.
  • Strong market potential: Growing demand for rental homes driven by Gen X and Millennials is outpacing increase in supply.
  • Reduced capital ex: Newer properties and no common areas can result in lower maintenance costs.
  • Tax benefits: Investing in a portfolio of lower-priced assets allows you to more exactly match your needed replacement value while resetting your depreciation schedule many times at a higher percent of total investment value. This creates the potential for more advantageous current tax scenarios.
  • Exit flexibility: Purchasing a portfolio of SFR assets allows for the ability to sell a portion of the assets over time.
