If you are like me and fed up with the horrible interest rates paid by banks or the almost laughable returns you get on bonds then you may want to consider investing in real estate to help supplement your retirement. Think about it, the home prices are still reasonably low as too are the interest rates so it is the perfect time to invest in either a home to flip or even a rental property. Even more importantly the housing market is starting to recover which means a predictably bigger payoff on your investment in years to come.
With all that being said there are some things that you will want to consider before making this potentially worthwhile investment. First of all it is pertinent that you find an experienced and dedicated realtor that can help you find the perfect investment opportunity. If you are looking for a potential rental property it is usually wise to buy local. It is much easier to upkeep and look after a property if it is near-by. Other things to consider when buying properties are property taxes, schools, crime, etc. These are all things that you realtor can help you narrow down during your investment opportunity search. If you are interested in finding the ideal investment property please call or email me so I can answer all of your questions.
