Simple Tips For Finding An Investment Property

Tip #1 – Consider Choosing A Single-Family Home Versus A Condo

Although condos may seem like they would be an easy Central Valley Rental Property to own the reality is that owning a single family home is often a better than a condo because, single family homes are traditionally occupied by tenants with children and once they become settled are less likely to move compared to tenants that are unmarried or without children.

As a landlord, it’s ideal to have tenants with children living in a single family home because studies show that these renters have been proven to live in a single family home for up to 5 years or longer especially if children in the home are going to school in the local area.

Tip #2 – Think Carefully About Location

Another important thing to do when choosing a Central Valley Rental Property is to think carefully about the location of your rental because location can make a real difference to some tenants especially if your rental is close to good schools, shopping, restaurants, jobs, and things to do in the area.

Tip #3 – Find Out How The House Was Built

Before saying yes to buying a new rental property in the Central Valley, you should also investigate how the home was built because a house that’s been “sturdily built” is going to save you thousands of dollars per year in repair costs while a home that’s been cheaper built will cost you more to maintain in the long run.
