A Word From The CEO

IHT Realty Crowdfunding has repositioned itself as RealtyeVest in compliance with our company’s new business model as an online real estate investment service  something we feel will more appropriately reflect the direction of our business.


 May Updates

We have transacted more than $20 million in capital through hundreds of successful real estate investment deals. Keep your eyes open for new investment offers on our Invest Page, as we plan to triple our real estate inventory this month following the successful launch of our website.

Tip of the Month: 1 Percent Rule of Thumb

Look to purchase properties that have a rent-to-price ratio of 1%, meaning the monthly rent is at least equal to or greater than 1% of the total purchase price. Properties conforming to this rule generally have positive monthly cash flow after accounting for routine debt expenses like taxes and insurance.

 

“Ninety percent of all millionaires become so through owning real estate. More money has been made in real estate than in all industrial investments combined. The wise young man or wage earner of today invests his money in real estate.” – Andrew Carnegie

Dr. Kenyon Meadows

Dr. Kenyon Meadows is a radiation oncologist from Youngstown, Ohio. He completed his residency in 2006 at the University of Florida and has been practicing medicine at the Southeast Georgia Cancer Care Center since 2008.

In addition to saving lives, Dr. Meadows is a published author and successful real estate investor, with an interest in residential properties in Jacksonville, Fla. Since 2013, he’s invested in approximately 35 deals on RealtyeVest and similar crowdfunding platforms.

Dr. Meadows prefers to invest in single-family properties in middle-class neighborhoods that have a good mix of owners and renters. “This is where the bulk of properties conforming to the 1 percent rule will be found,” Dr. Meadows said.

We recently sat down with Dr. Meadows to discuss his new book, “Alternative Financial Medicine: High Yield Investing in a Low Yield World” and his thoughts on real estate investing and the crowdfunding industry as a whole.

Areas of Growth: Assisted Living, Affordable Housing and “Surban” Apartments

-The market for Assisted Living has become a desirable asset for investors with nearly 12,000 Baby Boomers reaching retirement every day – The Pew Research Center.

-As the wage gap in the United States widens, there has been a shift towards lower paying jobs, leading to an increase in demand for Affordable Housing. The average household income for 36 percent of U.S. workers is under $20,000 per year – Social Security Administration.

– Millennials are not buying homes like previous generations. In fact, millennials are the most important factor in demand for new “surban” (suburban/urban) apartments. Recent reports indicate continued growth in apartments as more young people are leaving the nest – The Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp. (Freddie Mac).
