    The Value of Independent Rental Ownership in Your Retirement Plan
    By: Neil Fjellestad and Chris De Marco
    FBS Property Management & Advisory

    Rental ownership has a long history of satisfying the primary investment priorities of personal financial independence: safety of capital, inflation hedge and tax-favored income. Traditionally, if the detailed financial statements of the wealthy are available for review it becomes apparent that long-term income producing real estate assets directly or indirectly contribute substantially to their net worth.

    Certainly there are exceptions that get the notoriety. There are the entrepreneurs that hit the jackpot with a new invention, the right innovation at the right time and/or the market control of a needed commodity. Then there are the speculators that successfully capture the benefits of leveraged capital, cheap labor or some windfall in the short-term that cannot be repeated with consistency.

    However, forget the outliers and the top one-percent and concentrate on the basics of what has worked for the top twenty-percent. Locally understood and available rental properties purchased carefully one at a time consistently becomes the safest real asset to own. Note that a small share in a national real estate investment trust may seem like a safe way to get the benefits of real estate ownership but in fact, this is just another financial asset with the same characteristics and historically similar results as any other stock market investment.

    Well-located, rental-producing real estate has usually fared better as a long-term hedge against inflation when compared to financial investments. The closer your investment resembles a small business serving customers with an essential part of daily life the more likely that its operations and value are going to keep up with the cost of living.

    Though assets may hold value no reliable income is produced. Equity in your personal residence is its own goal providing a sense of financial well-being, a source of emergency funds and a reduction of household expense as you approach retirement; but no income. However, a well maintained and managed rental (house, condo, duplex, and apartments, commercial) that is held free of debt produces tax-favored income on a consistent basis.

    Finally, providing ongoing rental housing for households and/or businesses within your community is socially responsible and should be a greater source of personal satisfaction and connection compared to institutional financial investments.

    FBS has over four decades of real estate experience. This experience and expertise gives us a unique perspective which is straightforward, direct and transparent. Well located real estate should be owned as a long term investment since it is the safest, most productive method for average people to build wealth. We also believe that property should be kept rented in order to make long term ownership possible since rent collected is helping to keep the property well maintained and paying down loan principal. Eventually the property will be debt free and the rent can become an excellent safe source of additional retirement income for the investor. We have taught and utilized this realistic "real estate doctrine" for decades while keeping our clients on track with comprehensive advisory services and "best practices" property management.
