Now is perhaps one of the best times in history to purchase a home. Low interest rates and unparalleled affordability have created a perfect storm for qualified buyers.
So does that mean the “flipping days” are here again? Probably not. While there may be shrewd investors out there who have the ability to squeeze out a profit on flipping properties in this market, the margins aren’t favorable and reselling is tough.
It is, however, an excellent time for buyers looking for a long term real estate investment, especially those who want to manage a rental property. There’s a good margin between true value and current prices. Additionally, there’s great potential for higher rental values as rental inventory decreases under the pressure of potential buyers who can’t yet qualify for a loan.
Do you have a college graduate or newlywed child? Another great investment is the purchase of a home for someone in the family that may occupy it as a tenant until such time they can afford their own home.
If you’re curious about which neighborhoods would make the purchase of an investment property a good move, feel free to contact me today. I’d be happy to help advise you on an investment purchase.
