I deleted quoted digest and restored subject line. Fred -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- Does anyone think there will ever be universal rent equity. For example, let's say I have a real estate portfolio with several apartment buildings and homes that I rent to tenants, each rental payment they make goes toward a certain percentage of profit share. So instead of just paying rent, you are actually investing, helping the portfolio owner to buy more properies to which you also financially profit. You can change and move apartments within the portfolio to maintain your percentage of profit share or equity share. I know these words are not interchangeable and I may not be using them correctly. But hopefully someone gets the picture. When you exit the portfolio altogether......still fleshing this out but assuming you can transfer or sell your share or....if the portfolio also has homes, you could use your equity in the portfolio rentals as the downpayment on a mortgaged home. This will help those who are cash strappped both afford current rent and build up the rental equity for a downpayment on a home. If this were a thing, many people would gladly rent and help take care of their rentals because they too are invested at a higher level. Thought about this for awhile. If I added up all the rent, deposits, admin fees etc I could have money for several downpayments on a nice home on my budget, even at the low end of paying $500/mo for 10 years.
