Despite Rising Interest Rates, Real Estate Offers Opportunity to Investors
September 4, 2018 | Victoria Rock | WealthManagement.com
Real estate markets are rising—but not that fast. This presents opportunity to investors.
That’s what people like about real estate: it moves slowly and is not that affected by the daily swings in the markets. Long-term trends can—and will—affect real estate positively or negatively, but despite raucous political and economic news, real estate just continues to offer a safe harbor for clients.
Real estate investment products can offer superior risk-adjusted returns. Lower volatility is another advantage. Given generally low, or even negative, correlations with stocks and bonds, real estate also can also provide diversification.
Our firm has been using Blue Vault from the first year it was available.
We have found it to be a valuable tool to verify what wholesalers tell us and to dig deep into how the reported investments are really performing.
We appreciate that Blue Vault has expanded its services from initially covering REIT's to now also including BDC's.
Our clients also appreciate that we conduct this additional due diligence on their behalf.
