Real estate investors favor secondary markets and alternative assets in 2019

The most common motivation for purchasing real estate this year is to secure a stable income stream (32 percent) — a much higher share than in past years — followed by expectations for capital growth (20 percent). Value-add remains the preferred asset strategy (37 percent), with interest in good secondary assets (33 percent) increasing for the fifth consecutive year. Investors are ultimately looking for stable income stream and capital growth in acquisitions. [Source]
