Why Real Estate?
5 Reasons Why Real Estate is the Smartest Investment
We invest in properties with existing or potential consistent positive cash flow.
Depreciation is a tax write-off that allows you to keep more profits, aka a "paper loss" where no loss has occurred.
We buy properties with +50% of the funds borrowed. Borrow at a lower rate and invest at a higher rate of return.
Part of each loan payment goes to "principal paydown" reducing the loan, and increasing your equity.
Quality real estate is stable, appreciates in value, and historically outperforms the S&P 500.
The Lakeside Advantage
Lakeside vs. REITs vs. Doing It Yourself
We are more nimble, put the same % contribution into each opportunity, and are compensated in alignment with our investors. Our team typically resells through the agent who brought us the transaction, and doesn't take commissions or broker transactions, so brokers show us their best deals first, knowing we don't compete with them.
Lakeside vs. REITs
We consistently outperform REITs and Real Estate stocks by exploiting market and execution inefficiencies between the institutional and single, 'mom + pop' investor markets.
Lakeside vs. DIY Approach
Bringing our extensive real estate relationship network and experience to small to mid-size deals, we have a professional advantage over your average single 'Mom + Pop' investor. Not to mention we do all the heavy lifting!
