    Owning rental properties is going to get better

    I'm not staying to rush out and buy rental properties. But if you do, things will only get better. Thanks to slower sales of new construction and rising interest rates, there is not enough inventory to meet demand. Meaning rents will rise.

    Isn;t the real question: how big do you need to be to get Fanie Mae to guaranty your loans? Because I can;t get Blackstone big. But I'm sure I could buy up a lot of stuff if someone else was going to be on the hook.

    Somehow I don't think Tina will get as good treatment as Blackstone.

    What I don;t get is the rationale by Fannie Mae. How is making buying homes to rent out by big companies going to make home prices more affordable? It will just keep prices high.

    Simon: I just cannot worry about what the folks at Blackstone can do. I just need to worry about myself.

    James: Real estate is local. Can you get a rental property at a price where you can make money after expenses (don't forget those unexpected repairs)? What are rental rates in your area? Vacancy rates? Just spend some time learning. Attend meet ups. Then you'll start figuring it out.

    FWIW, meetups are a great way to meet other RE entrepreneurs in your area.

    Also, passive income still requires work.

    What happens in a rising interest rate environment? Or rising rates and inflation? This is what most people expect now. And I don't think you can get 30 yr fixed mortgages on your rental properties.

    I think supply and demand in the housing market will have a bigger role than inflation and interest rates. If supply and demand are in the landlords favor (more demand than supply), you will be able to pass on price increases.

    I think demand is going to be moving in your favor. Current demos and lack of new inventory make now a good time to be a landlord.
