STOCKTON – So you’re thinking about getting started with buying income property but can’t decide if investing in a multi-family or single family home is the right investment option for you.
In this post we will break down single family homes vs. multi-family to help you decide on where you should put your investment money when you first get started in Real Estate investing.
A Smart Choice for Your Money
Even though the conventional choice in Real Estate investing is to buy a single family home, the reality is that purchasing a multi-family rental property is the better option for you to make because:
· Stable income – If one of your tenants moves out if you own a duplex, fourplex or triplex you can always fall back on one of your tenants to cover your costs until you can rent the vacant unit again.
· Efficient – With a multi-family rental property you have the unique ability to handle all maintenance and or repair issues at once compared to scheduling appointments with multiple renters who are living in the single family homes which you own.
· Popular – More tenants prefer to rent multi-family units versus single family homes because they don’t want to have to deal with the hassle of landscape maintenance.
Best Way to Save While Making Money
Another reason to consider investing in a multi-family rental property is the extra incentive that you can live in one of the units yourself while your tenants rents cover the cost of your mortgage, insurance and property taxes.
Easy To Get Started
If you’re serious about buying your first multi-family rental property and want to live in the duplex, triplex or fourplex you may be able to qualify for an FHA loan and pay only 3.5 percent down to get into a property.
What’s best of all is that the FHA also offers renovation loans as well if your property needs new carpentry or flooring when you move in.
