Summary:  Wei Min Tan writes about how to let inflation work for you when investing in property.  The article was published in Epoch Times’ Chinese newspaper.  This is the English version.


Excerpt:  An investment strategy for these times is to buy real estate with borrowed money, let inflation raise rents and property value over the years and pay off your fixed mortgage with weakened dollars. Assuming you put 30% down and property values increased 60% over five years because you’re getting a good deal now and there’s inflation, you could double your money just from the appreciation alone, rental income increases not considered.
