I've learned a lot over the years about what it takes to help people go from first-time buyers to profitable, long-term investors. And yes, this is as exciting as it sounds!
If you’re thinking about investing in real estate for the very first time, here’s what I can share with you:
• Location, location, location - Zero in on desirable areas with high rental demand and appreciation potential.
• Property condition and maintenance - Select well-maintained properties (or ones you can easily spruce up) that will attract quality tenants and higher rental rates. Bottom line: If you keep it clean and cute, you’ll keep it profitable!
• Cash flow - Look for properties that will generate positive cash flow. A knowledgeable agent can help you run the numbers to find the sweet spot between rental income and expenses.
• Property management - Consider a property management company for the day-to-day operations of your property, freeing up your time and reducing stress. (Trust me, if you get the right company, it's 100% worth it!)
You CAN build a residential investment portfolio that will provide a steady stream of income and appreciation over the years to come. I’ve helped people from all sorts of backgrounds get started, and I’d love to help you too. Call or text and let's talk.
