Making sound investments isn’t just about picking up on the latest trends – it’s about really understanding the market, the factors that affect it, and making thoughtful decisions based on those details. A great example of what it takes to do solid projects is our approach to multifamily housing in the Dallas Fort Worth metro area.

A growing percentage of renters believe it is better to rent than buy a home, which helps explains why the homeownership rate remains persistently low nearly a decade after the housing crash.

A boom in apartment construction in the past few years has caused rent increases to begin to level off in many U.S. cities, while home price gains have accelerated over the past year. As a result, roughly 76% of renters in August said they believe renting is more affordable than owning, up from 65% in September 2016, according to survey results from Freddie Mac expected to be released Wednesday.

One of the most common ways I have seen investors invest in real estate is to purchase and operate one or more single family houses as rentals. It’s a logical approach for many investors as it’s a process they understand, having purchased their own home. In addition, owning a second home can be attractive as the purchaser has likely witnessed the equity in their home grow over time. However, for investors seeking a more diversified and balanced approach to real estate investing, they may be better off rethinking this strategy and, instead, opting to build a portfolio of passive commercial real estate investments by investing in commercial real estate.
