With the housing market still recovering and 401Ks and the stock market still sluggish, many of us feel like we’re chasing a retirement that seems to get farther and farther out of reach. No matter how hard we work, we’re just not confident in our ability to retire comfortably – or at a young enough age to enjoy it. From Main Street to Wall Street our investment dollars are not performing as consistently as they should, and it’s causing a lot of stress and frustration!

In the mad scramble to maximize investment income with minimal risk, one of the safest options is real estate. Not direct investment such as buying and flipping houses (which also requires a lot of time and cash); we’re talking about indirect investment via private money mortgages.

One of the positives – in fact the biggest plus as far as investing is concerned – is the fact that this type of investment is safe and offers a guaranteed high rate of return. In essence, private investors play the role of a bank in the loan process. A private money mortgage is just as secure as a bank loan, in that all of the same instruments, documents and procedures are followed, protecting all parties. Another advantage is the fact that there is no limit on how much private money is invested or where it comes from. Investors are paid principle and interest monthly, with the balance building at a steady rate. Our clients earn up to 6.5% fixed interest, guaranteed, without risk!

Real estate knowledge is not a requirement for this type of investment. We’re the real estate expert for all of our investing service clients, and not only do we ensure financially sound buyers and property purchases, but we also guarantee that each transaction is building a portfolio of high-performing cash flow properties. We have years of experience and many happy clients to attest to the success of our income investor services.

A comfortable retirement is not out of reach. It is attainable, if you know how and where to invest securely.

We can help! If you’re tired of the roller coaster ride of the stock market and are ready to earn a safe, high yield, contact us for more information. +1 (410) 971-5554 or


If you feel like the walls are closing in on you, you might be right.

New apartments hitting the rental market in 2016 are 8% smaller than they were 10 years ago, according to a recent report from online rental marketplace RentCafe.

Meanwhile, rents for all apartments on the market have risen 7% in the last five years.

This year, the average square footage of all new apartments, including studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, was 934 square feet. Just a decade ago, the new units coming online offered an average of 1,015 square feet.

The national average for rent this year is $1,296 compared to $977 in 2011.

The report analyzed data from buildings in the 100 largest U.S. cities that have at least 50 units.

The biggest losers were new studio apartments, which have shrunk by nearly 18% since 2006 to an average 504 square feet this year.

One bedroom apartments are also getting smaller: shriveling 5% to 752 square feet from 794 square feet 10 years ago.

But not everything in the rental market is getting smaller.

Two-bedroom apartments have held relatively steady, increasing 1% to 1,126 in the last 10 years.

Developers have faced higher construction costs recently, especially in bigger cities, thanks in part to rising land costs and increased regulations.

Fitting more units in a building tends to bring a higher return on investment (similar to when airlines pack more seats on a plane).

Developers had hit the pause button on building in the wake of the 2008 housing crisis. The average size of a rental took its biggest hit from 2011 to 2012 when the size shrunk 2.8% in a single year.

Demand for rentals has been on the rise as Millennials delay homeownership, baby boomers look to downsize, home prices continue to rise and more people choose to live in cities.

Most of the new apartments that are going up are in central areas, downtown, and there isn’t a lot of space there, so developers are building up

said Ama Otet, RentCafe’s real estate editor. But rents have been rising faster than wages recently, which has created an affordability issue for many renters. Last week, a report from the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University showed more than 21 million people spend at least 30% of their paycheck on rent — a record high.

When the Pokemon Go augmented reality smartphone game exploded onto the scene in July, traders quickly latched onto any investment threads connected to the game, but perhaps the best ways to capitalize on the trends illustrated by the game’s success are in real estate.

Though Nintendo shares soared as the game racked up users, pushing the scuffling Japanese gaming company’s market cap billions of dollars higher, investors soon came to terms with its limited share of any windfall from the game’s success. Companies that own data centers and wireless network towers, however, are poised to profit from additional mobile activity driven by apps like Pokemon GO for years to come.

To Burl East, who manages the Altegris/AACA Real Estate Long Short Fund, the Pokemon GO phenomenon wasn’t so much a singular opportunity, but more evidence of the growth in technology that justifies some of the biggest allocations in his real estate investment portfolio.

More than 30% of East’s portfolio is in real estate investment trusts that are connected to either data storage or telecommunications towers, he told Forbes in a recent interview. The biggest bets are storage plays QTS Realty Trust, CyrusOne and Equinix EQIX-US +%, accounting for more than 5% of the portfolio apiece, followed by tower plays American Tower AMT -0.34%, Crown Castle International CCI +0.62%and SBA Communications SBAC -0.40%.

The rationale is fairly simple: games like Pokemon GO and services like Instagram, Snapchat and countless others require the transmission and storage of data, pictures, video and messages. That means companies that lease cell tower space to companies like AT&T and Verizon, and those that house the servers that enable retrieval of information instantaneously from anywhere, own the equivalent of waterfront property in the digital world.

It’s the biggest thing I’ve seen in 30 years in real estate, says East

Nothing is as powerful as your kid wanting to watch Netflix, wherever and whenever.

As for any concern that some type of breakthrough in compressing data might diminish storage needs – think the middle-out compression engine developed by Pied Piper on the HBO series Silicon Valley – East is fairly confident the marketplace will come up with new apps, software and games that will lead consumers and businesses to consume more data and create information that needs to be stored in a secure and easily-retrievable form.

Every time the market has created more supply by compressing data, demand is created,” says East, whether through new uses of the technology or more powerful devices. “Your smartphone has more computing power than Apollo 13.

Those are just the consumer arguments. There’s a whole corporate side of things too. Take Microsoft 365, and the software firm’s efforts to migrate more business clients to its cloud-based offering.

You’re talking about the migration of billions of spreadsheets, powerpoint, documents and e-mails, says East

That alone will power data centers for years.

There is an argument that the value in these REIT bets is already well understood by the market, and already factored in to current stock prices. Current yields on American Tower and Equinox are below 2%, not much above the current levels of the 10-year Treasury. East scoffs at the idea these fast-growing REITs are overpriced, calling current valuations “fair” and pointing to underlying market and industry trends that make a paying a premium sound reasonable.

For one thing, he cites data that shows the looming creation of the independent real estate sector in the industry standard GICS classification system, set to occur Aug. 31 after the market close, will drive more than $100-$150 billion into REITs as fund managers rebalance to reflect the new sector lineup.

Historically a growth and income [manager] may have just ignored real estate,” says East, dismissing it as being taken care of by exposure to financials. “That was passive ignorance. Now it’s active ignorance if you’re not invested.

The other factor in REITs’ favor, and particularly the data plays he favors, is that landlords have leverage over tenants. The tower business is a “loose oligopoly” where “price competition takes a backseat,” says East.
