Rental house ROI & Remodeling budgets

January 11, 2017

Jumping into investment real estate this year ? Good info with a quick easy read, my basic Landlord real estate investor couple on the beachcriteria for useful information:

Here’s a huge oversimplification of the article links shown below:

ROI – your rent should be at least 1% of the purchase & set-up cost of your rental. e.g: You paid $85k to buy and rehab, it better rent for $850. Further, expect around 50% of the rent to be expenses (less if you have a mortgage).

My add to the thoughts: Annually evaluate your properties against each other AND against what else you could swap the lesser performing houses for. i.e: You can sell it for $200k/ it rents for $1250/mo., find another that will rent for the same that 1.costs less OR 2.costs the same but will rent for far more.

Renovations – Think practicality and ROI. Don’t go cheap for cheap sake and don’t over pay because its so snazzy. This is a business, not a glossy magazine.

My add to the thoughts: MANY. We’d need to sit down for this as each person, area, and property has different types of strengths and weaknesses. These need to be evaluated up-front BEFORE buying. I still believe that ‘the profit is made at the time of purchase’.
