Purchasing rental properties is great because you can borrow someone else’s money to increase your potential return. This is a common practice known as leverage. Basically, you do not need to have 100% of the rental property’s purchase price on hand to be able to make the purchase. When you purchase a Rental Home, you can buy larger properties for much less cash than you may need to purchase other investments such as stocks.
Greater returns can be realized on Rental Homes than in the market. Not only can you leverage the cash of others, but you can also leverage your time and abilities to make the magic happen in this game- something that is difficult to do with other investments.
If you want to do the work needed to rehab a property, you can do that. If you want to leverage your knowledge and time to find better deals that provide an even greater return, you can do that too. Remember, you are directly responsible for the outcome of your investment. It is up to you with the help of a Property Manager (Like OBX Housing) to analyze a property before you buy it. OBX Housing can review the home and determine if the property is in good condition to rent. It is up to you to ensure
the property is running at peak performance.
The Real Estate market will always go up and down, but the beauty of rental properties is that the demand will never end. People will always need a place to live, so unlike the latest tech trend or in your brother’s start-up company, real estate is an investment that will last. One of the greatest benefits of rental property investing, especially compared with other real estate niches and strategies, is the opportunity to capitalize on all four of the real estate’s major profit sources:
1. Cash Flow
3. The loan gets paid down
4. The tax benefits are excellent!
