Tremendous Tax Advantages

Depreciation is a great tax write-off.


This asset class increases in value over time. Also purchasing below replacement cost positions the property for future appreciation.

Cash Flow

Great advantage, not offered by other asset types. It generates constant cash flow through rental income.


It is much more stable than the stock market although not as liquid.
