Why Private Real Estate over Public Real Estate?

Like stocks and bonds, public real estate investments have a high correlation to the public market giving them high volatility. On the other hand, private real estate has shown historically low market correlation. In an age where equity markets have increased volatility and uncertainty, private real estate investing can provide unique opportunity for targeting substantial above-market returns.

The Difference between Public REITs and Private Real Estate.

Public real estate investment trusts (REITs) are more correlated to the stock market than private real estate. Private real estate investments—the sole focus at MLG Capital—target above-market returns and mitigates public market volatility.

Real Estate Can Be an Inflation Hedge

Two primary drivers of inflation are economic growth and monetary base changes. Private real estate can perform very well in these situations.

Primary drivers of inflation.
  1. A better economy drives inflation by increasing demand for products and services. This reduces unemployment and increases wages. As a result, companies raise prices—increasing inflation.
  2. Changes in the monetary base occurs when a central bank prints money. This makes each unit of currency worth less than before.
Inflation drivers fuel real estate demand.

A better economy raises companies need for real estate due to labor and capital increases. More demand for commercial real estate, along with the time lag for new supply, allows real estate asset owners to increase their income and value through higher rents and higher occupancy.
