Investment Face-Off: Rental Property With 6% or even 7% Cap Rate vs. REIT With 8% to 10% Return
This was too good to pass up as I have this discussion with my brother on a monthly basis. My brother owns REIT's as well as rental properties and the monthly discussion is always comparing. This article, very simply lays out not only the immediate benefits of Rental Properties and REIT's, but long term tax and appreciation benefits of rental properties. I totally agree with the writer and think that owning rental properties is a much better investment for long term investors. But don't let me go on and on, read the article for yourself and you make the judgement. Please let me know though what conclusion you came to after reading the article. I am just curious.
