Are you thinking about investing in real estate? It may be the perfect time to purchase a rental property, vacation home, or to flip houses. 

Here are some Do’s and Don’ts for investing in real estate:

  • Do look for homes priced in the low end of the median price range.
  • Do look for standard sized homes in the area; ie. 3-bedroom, 2-bath single family homes for rentals or flipping.
  • Do purchase rental properties close to your home if you plan to manage them yourself.
  • Do use one real estate agent to help with all your buying and selling needs.
  • Do use my investing tools for proper calculations before you decide to purchase. 

Here's the flip side...

  • Don’t purchase a second property until the first is earning revenue.
  • Don’t buy properties that you wouldn’t want to manage, even if you plan to use a property manager.
  • Don’t buy a home that you cannot afford to carry for several months in case of a slow market.
  • Don’t buy a home without having inspections performed.
  • Don’t buy without title insurance.
  • Don't buy with using me... ok so I snuck that one in here for fun :)

I can help you search for investment properties. I've worked with many investors and have invested in real estate myself. I treat the "deal" as if I were the one buying it. If real estate investing is a goal of yours then let's chat!
