Deciding to pool all your investments into one place is akin to putting all your eggs into the same basket. And this isn’t always the best strategy. Ideally you want to balance out the weight and scope of your portfolio avoiding favoring one opportunity over another. Like the basket full of eggs…if you drop it, they all break. Diversifying your portfolio doesn’t mean you’re fully protected but you may benefit if the markets you’re investing in shift.

Diversification shouldn’t be confused, however, with maximizing your returns either. The primary focus of diversifying is to limit any substantial impact on your portfolio given the potential volatility in the market. The last thing you want is for your entire portfolio to respond to negative market flux. Your strategy should be to mitigate your risk while potentially maximizing returns by spreading out your investments over different classes, assets, markets, etc. With a 1031 exchange you can invest in different options from multifamily units to residential homes to storage to commercial real estate in the forms or REITs, DSTs, UP-REITS, TripleNet NNNs and more.

How you diversify is really up to each investor and his/her comfort level. For example, you can equally diversify across the board and have 20% invested in five different assets. Or you can mix that up with 40% in one and 20% in three investments. Either one of these scenarios provides a cushion if one or more are impacted negatively.

Our team at Diversified Investment Strategies can analyze your portfolio to help you understand your weighting options. Factors we would consider when analyzing your portfolio include the real estate property type, the property class, trends in the geographical area, potential area growth (jobs, industry, move ins), length of investment, location, etc. While it’s a good idea for anyone participating in investments to understand the basics behind diversification, we have a deep understanding of the markets along the software, expertise and experience to analyze a market’s strengths and weaknesses to help you make the best decisions for your investment goals.
