What are the advantages of investing in real estate over the stock market?

Investing in the real estate market can actually be far more lucrative and far less stressful than the stock market. There are several reasons investing in rental properties, especially turnkey rental properties, can be more advantageous than investing in the stock market.

Unlike the stock market, your return on investment and monthly cash flow from rental properties do not fluctuate on a daily basis. While the real estate market and the overall state of the economy can certainly impact home values, real estate investors can enjoy the benefits of continual cash flow without having to invest time and energy viewing stock market data each day.


Stock market investors can wait weeks, months, and even years to see a return on investment, and only when you sell a stock will you have access to the cash. Investing in a turnkey property means all you have to do is put up the initial investment, since renovations and construction is already taken care of. We’ll even help you locate the right property and the right tenant, so you can begin to receive income immediately. rather than waiting and hoping to see movement in the stock market while your money is tied up in stocks.



Unlike the stock market, real estate investors put up an investment on the front end and enjoy the perks for months and years to come, while most stock market investors must continually buy, sell, and trade to earn a profit. This can require a lot of time and energy to see any rewards.

Real estate investors who work with property management companies enjoy the perks of being a real estate investor without the hassle of being a landlord. Investing in a rental property managed by Memphis Cashflow means you can sit back and relax while we handle the daily tasks involved. That means you can avoid having to take care of tenant issues like:

  • Overdue or Late Payments
  • Noise Complaints
  • Maintenance Requests
  • Property Damages
  • Renovations
