It seems that only a few people conduct research on the investment property they’re purchasing. They think that purchasing a property alone is enough to call it a good investment and they can earn profit from it right away. This may be true a long time ago, but not today since back then, almost properties have a very high value.
There are many factors that need to be considered and researched regarding investment properties before purchasing them. But maybe some of you might think that a good businessman can make an investment profitable in the future no matter how lame a property is. But, I say, why do you still have to wait for the future when you can already earn profit right away?
1. Purchase a property that is attractive to tenants.
When you are in this kind of business, you need to know what most tenants want from a property. This will allow you to set a good price and also allow you to earn profit. When setting a price for your property, make sure that you deduct all the expenses you’ve incurred that includes repairs, maintenance and the payment for your mortgage.
2. Capital Growth.
Choose a property that stands in an area where most properties appreciate rather than depreciate. Conduct a research on the area for you to be able to purchase a good property. The area is said to be feasible if it is accessible, surrounded by several amenities and full of business opportunities.
3. Look for a newly constructed property.
It is better to purchase a new or almost new property as you will be spared from paying the so-called stamp duty. When everything else is new, you do not have to refurbish the property even if you will have to pay bigger taxes, which is imposed on almost all properties, whether big or small. On the other hand, if you purchase an old property, you will have to do some renovations in order make it look like new again, which costs a lot of money.
