The Principles of Leased Investments
Lepic Kroeger, Realtors
Leased investments have always been strong elements of the Iowa City Commercial Real Estate and the Cedar Rapids Commercial Real Estate scene. There are great investment properties in both markets and ample high income investors with a desire to take advantage of the unique benefits a leased investment offers.
Investors are able to purchase these assets with leverage using borrowed funds at historically very low bank interest rates. They wait while simple inflation raises both the value and the rental income over time, and enjoy special tax treatment which benefits the savvy investor.
Opportunities range from buying a two bedroom condo for under $100,000 and renting it out, to buying a 100+ unit apartment building or commercial strip center for several million dollars. The same principles apply to large and small properties and are enjoyed by local investors. They say that “real estate is not something you wait to buy, you buy and wait!” It’s a catchy saying, but very true!
