What is Housing Arbitrage?

Corey and Rachelle dive into the idea of housing arbitrage in the newest episode of Financial Clarity for Doctors.  If you bought a home or refinanced it at historically low interest rates, you may be able to work that to your advantage in a unique way.

Listen Here!

The scenario this episode explores involves:

  • A homeowner in a desirable area with a comparatively low monthly cost.
    • Example cost (mortgage, taxes, insurance): $6,000 per month.
  • Exploring moving to a neighboring town where costs are lower, but want to rent first.
    • Example rental cost: $3,000 per month.
  • In the meantime, will rent out their existing home (in the desirable area).
    • Example rental income: $6,500 per month.
  • By doing this, they are generating positive cash flow of $3,500 per month!
    • Lower monthly housing costs for them, and a bit more income than expenses on the home.
  • This could potentially apply in other situations, where you are considering a move to another city with a lower cost of living as well.
