Investing into apartments is usually defined as residential rental units comprised of at least 5 or more units. Also, investing into apartments are a standard investment by many, whether using non-qualified or qualified funds.
Investments can be an excellent investment option as it can provide significant cash flow and significant tax deductions. The significant cash flow can be attributed to an economy of scale where there are many units as part of one location. However, like many things, too much of a good thing can become a negative benefit and many apartment investors will keep their investment into apartments to less than 50 units.
