Tips for Doing A DIY Appraisal on A Potential Investment Property
Are you planning on investing in homes for rent in Inland Empire or elsewhere across the United States? If so, like most investors, unless you plan on working with a real estate agent you will be doing a DIY appraisal of a real estate property. If you’ve never done a DIY appraisal before, this article will provide you with tips on how to evaluate a potential investment property in a professional manner to determine if it’s the right property for you.
#1 – Where Is the Property Located?
The first thing to do when evaluating a potential rental property is to determine if the location of the rental property would be suitable for potential renters. Ideally, you want to choose a property that is close to public transportation, shops, stores, and it should be in a good school district that most parents would want to send their children to.
#2 – What Does the Property Have to Offer?
Another important thing to consider before investing in a home for rent in the Inland Empire area or elsewhere across the United States is to ask yourself what does the property have to offer? How many bedrooms and bathrooms does the home have? Does it have yard space? Are there parks nearby for children to play? Is the neighborhood safe? All of these questions are important for investors to ask themselves before purchasing a new rental home.
#3 – Learn More About Comparable Properties in The Same Area
Last of all, but most important, another thing to consider before investing in a property is to look at what other comparable properties in the same area are selling for because you want to have confidence that your rental property will have good resale value should you decide to sell it within five years.
