Why Interest Rates Won’t Affect Your Real Estate Investments

Are you a passive investor not investing in multifamily real estate because of these high-interest rates?

Well, it’s time to push those fears aside and reconsider apartments as an investment.

Because interest rates DON’T matter anymore.

Give me 5 minutes to tell you why.

Currently, many investors are being held back from diving into multifamily properties due to the high interest rates.

The worry is that it’s too risky and could lead to heavy financial losses. If I were, I’d be scared, too. But you’re just not seeing the full picture.

The problem is that there’s a common misconception floating around about multifamily real estate works in today's economic climate.

But by staying on the sidelines, investors are missing out on incredible, low-risk buying opportunities. Warren Buffet says this about times where the market is full of fear:

“Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful”

The current market conditions are an ideal time for securing assets that offer the potential for long-term growth and wealth-building. It’s an environment where interest rates don’t matter.

Right now, you should be gearing up to make your move in the market, armed with the right knowledge – which I’m about to give you.

The game-changer today isn’t in avoiding high interest rates … it’s in adapting to them. How? By building them into our underwriting processes and opting for fixed-rate debt instead of floating rate.

As a passive investor, you’re not underwriting deals, but you’re operators will be. Ask them how they’re handling these interest rates.

If they’re still using floating rate debt, they’re still analyzing deals like they would be 2 years ago and probably won’t be the best fit for you.

The approach we take shields us from the impact of unpredictable interest rate fluctuations and protects more of your money. The deals we’re doing today are completely different.

Discovering the Solution

In my journey through real estate investment, I've discovered that the real game-changer is not avoiding high-interest rates but adapting to them. How? By incorporating these into our underwriting processes and opting for fixed-rate debt. This approach shields us from the impact of unpredictable interest rate fluctuations and changes the dynamics of potential deals significantly compared to just 18 months ago.

Why Interest Rates Don't Matter Anymore

Here’s the crux of the strategy: by factoring high interest rates into our underwriting from the start, we nullify the risk they pose. Moreover, using fixed-rate debt ensures that we are insulated from any wild swings in interest rates. This means that the typical concerns about interest rates no longer apply to our investment decisions.

Focus on What Really Matters

If interest rates aren't the central concern, what should multifamily real estate investors focus on? The answer is the structure of the debt. Ensuring that your investment has fixed-rate debt is crucial. With this in place, the fluctuation of interest rates becomes irrelevant, allowing you to focus on other vital aspects such as rent projections, reserve funds, and the overall fundamentals of the asset.

The Importance of Debt Structure

Debt is everything in today's market. Deals with fixed-rate debt carry virtually no interest rate risk, making them stable investments. High Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratios might pose a risk, but securing anything above 80% LTV is becoming increasingly difficult, hence rarely a concern. The focus should rather be on the reliability of the debt structure and other critical financial indicators.

Why Now Is a Great Time to Invest

Today's market conditions have made deals less risky compared to a couple of years ago. When evaluating opportunities, ensure that the operator has a proven track record and is experienced in navigating the current market landscape. These elements are fundamental in predicting the success of your real estate investments.


Interest rates should no longer be a deterrent for investing in multifamily real estate. With the right approach and understanding of how to leverage fixed-rate debt and sound underwriting, the perceived risks diminish significantly.
