Episode 056 – Part Two of You Can’t Fix Noise & Other Things to Avoid When Property Shopping

 

SHOW NOTES & LESSONS

What you want to look for when acquiring properties for you STRs or your Portfolio:

Look for a Neighborhood that Looks & Feels Good.

Check it out at all times of the Day and Night.

#1 Thing - as always - Location, Location, Location!

How's the Parking?  At night?  I look for Designated Parking!

What to Avoid:

Noise! - Whether it's being backed-up to a busy street or barking dogs, noise is one of your worst enemies when it comes to renting out a property.

Bathrooms - Optimally, one bathroom for each bedroom.  At the very least, no bathrooms that force you to walk through bedrooms.  No good!  Masters need their own bathrooms, always!

Reminder: Do your due diligence before signing on the line!

That airport didn't just go up overnight and that dog has most likely been there the entire time. Make certain you do your due diligence BEFORE you rent or buy a property. Know your neighbors. Knock on their door. Ask questions like, "is there anything you wish you were aware of before you bought your home? Is there anything you think I should know?

Michelle has an entire list of what type of house not to buy!

Investing in Out-of-State Real Estate

Investing in Out-of-State Real Estate

 

Buying real estate rarely goes smoothly, and buying property out-of-state has even more potential challenges. If you are planning on renting property out-of-state, there are similar challenges involved.  However, either are entirely manageable if the potential trouble areas are planned for and addressed.  Many people rent and own property out-of-state, and you can too. 

 

Also, whether you decide to buy a property or rent it, let’s just call it what it is: Controlling the Property.  Whether you rent or own, you are “controlling” the property in order to run a Short-Term Rental Business out of it and you must be able to “control” the use of that property within the eyes of the law.
