  • Partners/Private Investors

    Think about bringing on a partner or private investor to help you find the funds to get that first deal.

    Do you plan on managing your property or hiring property management? This should be calculated into your analysis on a potential deal.

  • Rental Permits

    Do you need to acquire a rental permit to rent your property? Often the case for city rentals or vacation rentals.

    Taxes come out of your monthly cash flow so making sure you are aware of current taxes & whether they will be going up can help you analyze the property for a more accurate current & future ROI.

    What are the different industries and/or employers that provide jobs for the people in the area you want to invest?

    If you’re planning to buy a condo/townhouse be sure to find out about your association fees and rules.

  • Property Type

    Think about the type of properties you want to invest in (multi family, single family, section 8, mobile homes) to help you narrow down your search parameters.

  • Type of Neighborhood

    Do you want your properties to be in A, B, C, etc neighborhoods?  Find out the different areas of your investing community and what areas fit your goals.
