Real estate remains one of the number one investments you can make to enhance your financial before you. When it comes to developing a property, you have two options: renting or flipping? Each has its advantages and disadvantages. What’s the better pick for your needs? Consider these factors:
A home or commercial space that has been deemed “distressed” and in need of renovation could come at a discounted price. The only red flag would be the condition of that distress. An inspection could reveal a lot more work is needed to get that place habitable then you’re ready to invest into. The reality flipping shows makes it look easy. That might be true but you should enter into a project very carefully. Buying something sight unseen at an auction and “as is” could be full of challenges
Renting Revenue Stream
A rental property can set up a positive revenue stream. It might require a bigger initial investment just because you want something that is turnkey ready. However, if it is in good condition and you can rent it out right away, then those rental funds can pay for the mortgage. The only drawback is what happens if you don’t rent it? Can you carry two mortgages at once?
Landlord vs. Construction
Someone who makes a career out of flipping properties means they are always on the lookout for their next investment opportunity. It’s always a hustle to find new homes and set up the financing. Then there’s all that time that needs to be invested in the renovations. That means your funds are going to be tied up for several weeks if not several months. Plus, there’s no guarantee you will sell the home once everything is finished.
As a landlord with a rental property, you are entering into a long-term relationship with your renters. That means you are responsible for collecting rent, making repairs and screening those tenants. A lot of that work can be turned over to a property management company but they will charge you a fee. It’s not a stretch to imagine that several rental properties could become a full-time business. But it still frees you up with a lot of time during the day.
With either type of development, you’ll have to build a list of reputable vendors.
