3 Things to Know Before Buying Investment Property, Red Wing, Minnesota

Real estate investment is a great way to add an additional stream of income and diversify your financial portfolio. However, it’s important to know what you’re getting into with a listing before making the leap and purchasing an investment property. Below are some tips to keep in mind when visiting properties.

3 Considerations to Make Before Purchasing an Investment Property

1. Condition of the Property

While it can be lucrative to purchase a fixer-upper, don’t forget to consider the amount of time and money you’re willing to spend on the project. You should avoid any properties that have serious issues, such as a mold or structural damage, as this can cost thousands of dollars to repair.

2. Property Taxes & Insurance Costs

Include the property taxes in your calculations before closing to ensure it’s a favorable investment. You should also consider the cost of insurance — living in an area that’s prone to storms or flooding can drastically raise your expenses.

3. Property Management

If real estate investment is only a supplemental stream of income, you will need to find a company to manage your properties. They will take over as the main point of contact for tenants, which involves dealing with repair issues, collecting rent, and searching for renters.
