Investment Property

Buying an investment property

As an Owner of 2 investment properties, I firmly believe there is no better path to increasing your wealth than owning investment properties. It’s an excellent long-term investment and with Austin rents continuing to increase, now is the perfect time to purchase an investment home. Below is a video I made with some tips on how to pick the right property:

Down Payment

It is important to note that investment properties do require a 20% down payment, unlike a traditional owner-occupy home where you can get $0 or low down payment options.  There are different ways to structure your loan and I have connections with lenders experienced with loans for investment homes.

Cash Flow

Since you are buying this property with the goal of appreciating wealth, it is critical that the property “cash flow.” In other words the monthly rent you receive should more than cover your monthly mortgage. I have an extensive spreadsheet I share with my investment clients which clearly indicates the minimum rent required for various monthly mortgage amounts.
