The Best Kept Secret of Investingby Casey PurvisWhen it comes to investing, most people immediately think of the stock market. The stock market is extremely volatile as we have seen in the last 10 years. Historically the average return on stock market investments since the 1950s is 7%, whereas typical returns on multifamily investment range between 16% and 25%. But purchasing multifamily real estate can also be very confusing, again without the time to truly learn your market, doing deep market analysis, and finding the right property. For these reasons and many more, it is clear that investing in multi-family assets is typically a better investment than the stock market for most individuals, although it is always recommended to have a diverse portfolio.
