Understand Your Criteria When Buying Income Property

When it comes to securing your retirement through rental properties it is best if you understand your criteria when buying income property.  Today I sat down with a fellow realtor here in the Kansas City area and two investors that own one rental property with plans to add many more.

What I found is what I usually find.  You see, I asked them what their criteria was for what they were looking to acquire.  I’m not picking on them, I’m really truly not when I say they did what most newer real estate investors do… they went silent.

Those links above the picture are the links to a series of videos I did for real estate agents seeking to work with investors and for the investors themselves.  Here are a few things you should know what you are looking for before going too deep in to your next investment property search;

  • What return are you expecting?
  • How do you measure the return?
  • Location?
  • Bedrooms?
  • Single Family Home or Multi?
  • Rehab or Turn-Key?
  • Is the school district important?

I could add a whole bunch more.  Or, you could watch those videos.  Listen, I know the videos are boring.  I don’t know how to make real estate investing more exciting unless I stand in front of a rented garage full of luxury sports cars and half dressed women.  Oh wait, for the gurus out there I’m sorry (not) if I offended you.
