Regular readers would know that, on the back of our extensive research into the US real estate market, we have recently stepped up our investment activities in select and targeted US real estate markets. One property that we have recently uncovered, which is under contract via UGC, is this high cash flow generating property in the south side of Chicago.

8150 South Marshfield is a Brick 2-Flat in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood of Chicago. This 3,056 square foot duplex sits on a 3,750 square foot lot and features 6 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, full unfinished basement with an astonishing annual gross rental income of $29K+ offered turnkey with full one year warranty on all maintenance repairs and government guaranteed HUD tenants. This property was built in 1918 and was completely rehabbed in 2015.

Although the suburb is located in a developing area within Chicago, that doesn’t mean the investment is high risk. In fact, by accessing government tenancy subsidy programs such as Section 8 and other Department of Housing Administration programs (which have strict tenancy performance criteria), this US real estate investment can be a low risk high performer creating plenty of safe and consistent cash flow to support your wealth creation and retirement needs.

A combination of improved economic conditions, low interest rates, strengthening consumer confidence, a significantly stronger jobs market, highly affordable prices and a chronic under-supply of housing is driving significantly higher rents, and we expect soon, significantly higher real estate prices in our target markets. Given the high cash flow and capital appreciation potential, we believe that right now, the US real estate market is providing a rare opportunity for both income and growth investors. There is still plenty of time left to capitalise on this investment opportunity and to add significant value to your portfolio.
