180: Appreciation vs. Cash Flow: What Do You Want Most?
By Keith Weinhold
Stop looking at properties. (What?) I discuss. Are you in real estate for appreciation, cash flow, or something else? If you focus on cash flow, does that mean less appreciation, and vice versa? We discuss when a market becomes "too hot to buy for cash flow” any longer. The Midwest has more affordable property and better cash flow but less recession resilience. Dallas-Fort Worth keeps showing appreciation potential, but cash flow is drying up. When a market heats up, rents don’t “keep up” proportionally to a property’s market value. We also discuss low appraisals. Appraisals are what the bank uses to verify the quality of their collateral.
