2 Factors that Help Spot a Great Investment Property Deal

Investment properties are a great way for people to earn extra income. Some people enjoy house flipping. With this process, they buy a house, renovate it, and then hopefully sell it for a profit. Others buy a house and then rent it out to gain rental income. When looking for a Miami Beach investment property for sale, there are two factors to consider.

Good Location

The first factor is a good location. Before purchasing an investment property, it is critical to do thorough research on the surrounding area. First, analyze the local crime reports. Ideally, homeowners should invest in a low-crime area. This will open up the market to a wider range of potential renters and owners, such as families, who prioritize safety. The second location factor to research is the quality of the surrounding schools. Looking up school ratings and reviews can help homeowners understand the schools in the area. Families are always looking to move to areas with a good school system, so it is important to invest in a property that feeds into high-quality schools. Other location factors that will help the investment property rent or sell are parks, the ability to walk to surrounding restaurants, neighborhood pools, and more! As you navigate through potential investment properties, be sure to understand the surrounding area and whether it will appeal to potential buyers and renters.

Profitable Homes in the Area

This factor is key to being able to make money off of your investment property. Before purchasing a property to flip or rent, check out the numbers of surrounding similar properties that have recently sold or have been rented. Look for a house in an area where sellers are making a profit from their homes. Also, check out local rent numbers to see if you can actually make a profit if you rent the investment property. It is also important to check how long the homes in the area are sitting on the market. The quicker they are being sold or rented out, the better. Websites such as Zillow and Redfin can help investors learn more about the properties in an area.

Investing in real estate is an exciting business to be a part of. Many homeowners make it their goal to have a few investment properties in addition to their main residence.  Whether this is through house flipping and selling or through renting, it is a great way to provide additional cash flow. When searching for a Miami Beach investment property for sale, be sure to carefully analyze the location and the sale and rental prices of similar homes in the area. This will help you decide where exactly you want to buy.
