Under normal circumstances, a home’s value will always increase, and you can generate recurring income if you rent out the property. The process is similar to buying a home, but with a few more considerations.
--> What are your investment goals?
** The decision to purchase a home as an investment property is a little different than if you were going to live there. There are expectations and goals with every investment.
--> Are your finances in order?
** It’s no secret that home ownership is an expensive investment. In addition to the total cost of the home, there are taxes and maintenance costs, and those costs double if you choose to invest in more than one property.
--> What’s the condition of your investment?
** A property that has little to no maintenance required is worth the investment compared to a fixer upper that may be available at a lower cost. Homes that have signs of wear and tear are at risk of additional expenses that you may not be prepared for.
--> Where are you investing?
** Choosing a home in the right neighborhood will boost the value of your investment, and attract more tenants. By familiarizing yourself with neighborhoods in the area you can get an idea of the average cost of homes and the value of the property.
