Is Your Investment Hedge High Enough?

“Approximately 98 percent of the world’s millionaires made their fortunes in real estate property.”* Although some of the first investment burns experienced in the nation’s flash financial fire were in the real estate arena, current economic movements continued record-low mortgage rates may eventually override hesitation and skepticism, and encourage an investor return to the residential real estate market. With mortgage rates still hovering at low levels, many seasoned investors are remembering the well-known industry credo – as Palmer Letzerich, Director for Hines Investment puts it, “Real estate investment is the ultimate hedge against inflation.” He also notes that the consistent ebb and flow of the financial market, from prosperity to inflation to recession and back again, puts our current market position – and mortgage rates – low and on the upswing. “If the investor buys now while rates are low, locking his position on the downside, when the rental consumer index rises automatically with inflation, the investor’s ‘yield’ (the annual interest payment divided by the market price) increases also because of his low mortgage rate payment on the property.” 2

Vacation at Home One significant factor that has a positive bent toward investment in residential rental properties is the decline in international travel. Whether concerns are for safety or increased costs because of our dollar, many consumers are looking locally for a vacation spot. Families living in all four corners of the country are attracted to the idea of the privacy of renting a home for an extended period. Having access to a large private residence in a desirable location provides opportunities for all ages and stages. Even though rental costs can be substantial, the cost of flying internationally plus the low exchange rate for the dollar makes vacationing “at home” an increasingly attractive option. Be Aware In spite of the many positives that might encourage residential real estate investment, investors should be careful, as with any investment, to learn the ins and outs of the market. While it seems obvious that the goal is to buy low and sell high, or buy at low rates so rental indexes will ensure profits regardless of inflation, achieving that goal has some caveats. Studying your potential investment market through extensive comparisons of like, or at least similar, properties will help determine the properties that are undervalued. Noting that a property has been on the market for an extended period may signal a motivated seller, and that price is more negotiable.

If you are investing for resale or for long-term rental, buying near shopping centers, job opportunities and quality schools can significantly increase the desirability of the property. Visiting with area Realtors can help glean information about the true desirability of the neighborhood. The one singular issue that seems to remain in cement with regard to buying, selling or renting residential real estate is “location, location, location.” The ultimate demonstration of that is the fact that many buyers and renters will choose a lesser residence if it is in the “right” neighborhood - highly acclaimed school districts, parks, near shopping, etc. Whether purchasing for rental or resale, consider factors like surrounding properties, zoning regulations and any potential construction that may affect the area. When purchasing a rental, consider the cost of necessary repairs, the advisability and cost of upgrades, and most of all, the cost of maintaining the property. Real estate investment, even with its ups and downs, seems to be a perennial favorite for investors. It appears that the ever-hopeful and ever-entrepreneurial American spirit wants to reinforce Scarlett O’Hara’s obsession with Tara and its land. Since approximately 41 percent of real estate professionals own investment properties for rental purpose – an instance of practicing what they preach – it seems to be an innate characteristic of American Dreamers to love owning land, and be ever on the search for more of it, plus the good investment options surrounding it.

Envision a land encompassing 55 acres offering both sunrises and sunsets. Next, imagine a shoreline stretching 3,000 feet along some of the most inviting waterfront with soft,sandy beaches. Then, picture a compound of three separate waterfront residences and two carriage houses that watch ships come and go from its two deep water docks. Dream of the deeply dredged, private lagoon with additional docks for safe harbor during storms. Conjure up an expansive pond, beautiful orchards, indigenous wild life and miles of walking trails to enjoy. No, not the promo for some exotic vacation destination (or maybe it is). And not the location for the next Pirate movie (but it could be). Nor is it the secluded haunt of a mysterious mega mogul (at least not currently). What is it exactly? Simply put, it is the most beautiful waterfront property now available for sale in the Hamptons today. Located on the northern tip of a peninsula that looks at the pristine shorelines of Shelter Island, Sag Harbor and East Hampton’s Northwest Harbor, Tyndal Point awaits. And now, for the first time, Tyndal Point has received preliminary approvals to subdivide its 55 Acres into 6 lots which can be owned in pairs with final approvals expected by years end. Each estate like 2-lot parcel will range from 17 to 20 acres allowing for a waterfront residence and an interior guest house. The northern most pair already has one deep water dock capable of accommodating large boats plus another next to the ferry. The southern most pair has approvals in place for a new dock to be constructed in front of the existing glass house. Both the southern lots and the middle lots have access to the dredged lagoon with additional dockage. Contact us for your private tour today. Contact us for a private tour:
