Considerations Before Purchasing a Rental Property

If you are considering investing in a property that you will rent to tenants, whether a home or business, you may be feeling a mix of emotions. You can feel excited about this new endeavor while still feeling anxious about your investment or overwhelmed with the to-do list before purchasing. Purchasing a rental property can be a great investment, and you should do your research before putting in an offer. Here are a few things to consider as you start your search.

Know the Purpose
Are you searching for a property to rent office space to clients? Or are you looking to purchase a property that will become home to your renters? It is important to choose if you will be seeking commercial or home properties. Commercial properties are typically much more expensive, but if you want to work with business renters, this is the way to go. Homes can be less expensive but come with their own potential aggravations.

Get the Word Out
Before you put an offer on a property, have your marketing plan ready to go. How will you get the word out about the property to let potential tenants know it is available? Don’t wait until closing to develop your marketing strategy.

Location Matters
Choosing a property is a hard task, but starting with location can help you narrow down your search quickly. You want a property that has an ideal location for your potential tenants, as well as for yourself. If you will be heavily involved with the maintenance and upkeep of the property, consider purchasing within a reasonable commute from your own home.

Get an Attorney
Just as with purchasing your own home, it is crucial to work with an experienced real estate attorney when investing in a rental property. The team at Bell Lawis just the group you want looking out for your best interests. We can take care of a lot of your paperwork and will be sure to advocate for your preferences all along the way.
