Buying Investment Property

If you are looking to diversify your investments and take advantage of the current state of the housing market by investing in rental properties, then we can help. We have years of expertise when it comes to working with real estate investors who are looking for rental properties that can provide them with short term and long term income as well as the tax benefits that owning a rental property can bring. And while working with an experienced Real Estate Agent to locate rental properties that meet your criteria is important, there are some things that you need to be aware of when investing in rental properties. List of available RENTAL PROPERTIES

Be aware of the effort you`ll need to put forth 

If you do not use a Best Choice Agent to find the properties that you are looking to buy, then you will need to do a lot of legwork on your own. Your REALTOR® will have access to huge databases of possible properties for you to look at and will be able to narrow down the available properties in your area based on your specifications. Your Best Choice Agent also will have firsthand knowledge of properties as they are listed, including short sale and foreclosure properties that can sometimes be purchased for far below market value.

Be aware of the need to manage the property or properties that you purchase

There is more to owning an investment property than simply finding a tenant and signing a lease. Your property will need to be kept within local code and will need to be maintained and watched over. You will need to have a process in place for accepting rental payments and for performing inspections of the property from time to time.  Many times, an investor will hire a Best Choice Agent or an agent that the Best Choice Agent recommends to handle these issues for them.  Your Best Choice Agent can guide you through the process

Be aware of the attributes of a great investment property

If this is your first time buying an investment property, you may not be aware of where to look for the best properties for your portfolio.  A driving factor is location. The closer to the "center of things" in your area, the more rent your unit can command. As a rule of thumb, the heavier the traffic, the easier it will be to rent the property and to command a good price for rent.  If your property is located close to a major employer, like a hospital, university, or a large corporation, you can usually demand more rent than one that is twenty minutes away.  Likewise, you want to find properties that are low maintenance so that you`ll have fewer headaches and expenses down the road. You should also look for newer homes when possible, as there will be fewer building code issues or maintenance problems.  And last of all, look for properties in stable neighborhoods that are experiencing growth
