Income Property FAQs 

How Can I Find the Ideal Income Property? 

Real EstateThe ideal investment listing may differ from your dream home. Think like a renter or vacationer when doing your research. Review online listings and talk with local realtors. As you browse area properties, look for homes that are in attractive, accessible locations and include rental-friendly amenities like a pool, large kitchen, or recreation room. 

The most sought-after Gulf Coast investment listings are located near the water, updated or newly remodeled, and have a high resale value. 

What Should I Ask My Real Estate Agent? 

Ask your real estate agent about other income property listings in the area and how they compare to the properties you are considering. Is the prospective home or condominium pricier than others? Does it have a smaller yard or less square footage than a comparable place down the street? Stay tuned into the local industry to determine if you are getting the best deal, as well as the prospective rental income. 

What Else Should I Consider Before Buying? 

Before buying, consider the area’s flood and hurricane risks, insurance costs, HOA fees, and current market to determine if the investment is appropriate. You should also find out if there is new development planned in the area. If you get a chance to speak with the seller, ask them how long the property has been on the market and how many offers they have had. 

You should also ask about renovations, the age of the electrical wiring and roofing, and whether ample parking is available. Finally, research the property to determine if any notable crimes or accidents have taken place within it, as this deters renters and buyers in the future.
