Perfect Storm For Realty Investors: Rising Vacancies And Falling Rents

In Piketty and the decline of dirty mansions, Dylan Reid reminds of the debt-driven economic boom that built large single-family mansions in the early 20th century. Many were converted to more efficient and affordable multiple-unit dwellings in the bust years that followed. In the process, working people who had been priced out of many areas could move into affordable housing in nice neighbourhoods with good access to transportation, services and schools. Social and economic strength improved as they did.

Another debt boom worked to reverse the trend over the last 15 years, as many of the same buildings were remodelled back to large single-family dwellings and nice rentals became scarce and prohibitively expensive.

Condo buildings, institutional dwellings for students and seniors, and office and commercial space became “no-brainers” since they could be purpose-built in scale by yield-starved investors willing to buy with thin and even negative cash flow prospects.

5% Dividend Yield From Postal Office Real Estate: Postal Realty (NYSE:PSTL)

Postal Realty Trust (PSTL) is an internally managed real estate investment trust (‘REIT’) that owns properties leased to the United States Postal Service (‘USPS’). The fragmented state of USPS properties makes PSTL an unlikely growth story with a hefty 5% dividend yield as a starting point. While the tenant concentration is a potential cause for concern, PSTL appears to be a worthy addition to any dividend growth portfolio.

Postal Office Real Estate

For those who are unfamiliar with postal office real estate, the USPS is a government entity whereas the underlying USPS properties are often privately owned. PSTL owns 666 such properties spread across 47 states, with a heavy concentration everywhere except the West coast:

Realty Vs Real Estate Vs Real Property

Realty and personal property terms have often been confused as to what they exactly mean. Here we will clear that right up for you. We will look at the terms personal property, realty, land, real estate, and lastly real property.
