Portland Oregon Rental Property vs. Stock - Which Option Is the Better Investment?

PORTLAND — You've owned Portland Oregon Rental Property for years now and after holding onto your properties after the collapse of the Real Estate market in 2008 you're starting to wonder if now is the right time for you to sell your properties since we have reached the top of the market.

When is it really the Right Time to Sell?

With property values skyrocketing across Portland and most of Oregon, now would seem like the right time to sell your Portland Oregon Rental property.

Before you decide to "pull the trigger" and sell your real estate it's best to really do the numbers and see if you would see a good return on your investment like you would if you were to purchase stock or other investments.

For example: Take the annual net cash flow that you receive from your Portland Oregon Rental Property and divide that number by the equity in your property.

Once you have the yield you can then use this figure to measure the income which your rental property generates by any income which you may receive from stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other investment opportunities.

Why You Should Consider Sticking With Real Estate

The BIG DIFFERENCE between owning stock and Real Estate is cash flow.

Over the last 10 years, we've seen a bigger demand for rental property across the United States while stocks have risen and fallen in value.

If you want consistent cash flow, even as you approach your retirement then owning Real Estate is the real winner since your cash flow won't change in spite of the rise in fall in the stock market or property values.
