After the financial crisis of the last decade, rental properties became a large part of the real estate landscape.  Financially savvy investors snapped up homes from sellers in crisis as foreclosure threats loomed.  Since then, the market has stabilized and home ownership has once again been on the rise.  But there are still plenty of rental properties in the real estate market, and plenty of opportunity for investors!  And it's no longer deep-pocket corporations who are buying those fixer-uppers. 

According to a recent study, 48% of real estate investors own only a few properties.  This type of investing can be a great opportunity for long-term returns, which makes it a great option for retirees, people looking to diversify their investments, and well, almost anyone!
