A Three-Bedroom 401(k) For RENT

If you’re not already subscribing to Bloomberg Businessweek you’re missing out. The stories there are 3 weeks ahead of the news on TV. In the November 12th edition there was an article about housing. That I’ll post an excerpt from below.

David and Michelle Haisley of Fot Wayne, Ind., weren’t happy with the performance of their retirement funds, so they made another investment – a foreclosed home for $27,000. David and heating and air-conditioning technician, worked on the house before it went into default, then decided to make an offer when he saw it listed at about a third of the price of surrounding homes. The Haisleys found tenants for the house, who pay $900 a month, giving them an annual return of more than 20 percent. ….. “It’s an income stream for us, and when it’s time we’ll sell it and make more money than we could from our 401(k),” says David.
