Check out zillow and apartments . com rental listings. You should get an idea of how much rent you can get for the type of property you are looking at. Talk to a real estate agent, they will be able to guide you as well.


I've just started researching myself. Have you checked out BiggerPockets? A lot of resources to help with your research.

I am beginner in real estate investing. Liv in a rented apartment and looking to start with a Condo, with a goal of staying there for 2 years and then renting it.

Would love to get some words of wisdom from this group. Specifically on:

- Any recommended books to read before jumping into it
- Is there a free excel template that I can use to analyse deals
- How to find a good real estate agent in my area

Thanks in advance!

Choice between a really nice property, under budget, with a pool (main reason for wanting this place), minor updates needed + landscaping eventually (well manicured lawn), in great school district (no kids so don't care but it makes it well positioned for resale - only lasted a week last time it was on the market 4 yrs ago), vs. new construction townhouse, in similar area, max budget + higher taxes ... On paper it sounds like a no-brainer but I'm torn... Some help here plz 🙏

Off market deals in Tampa Florida? Let me know! First time investor looking for a good opportunity


My husband and I purchased our home at the end of 2018 (Northern New Jersey) and we knew we wanted to remodel the kitchen when we purchased the home. We're now at a point where financing the remodel is possible. The estimated cost of the remodel is going to be about $50k. How much should be paid for in cash versus debt?


Advice please. My first rental. Renting a house to an individual (over 18) and their parents, high profile, are going to be paying the rent and associated bills. Background and credit check hit a snag on Zillow because of “high security” with their identities. How to go about this? Just make them sign a lease without cleared checks? They have paid first month rent and security deposit to take my house off the market while we figure this out.


What’s everyone’s thoughts on buying investment properties outside the us? (Canada,Mexico, etc). Is it harder to manage/profitable compared to US?


Does anyone have insight on the Florida housing market? I’m a newbie looking to buy my first house but it seems very expensive right now. I have 60k of cash on the sidelines waiting but not sure if it even makes sense to try and time it or just buy a house i like and can afford whenever I see it. Thanks!


Really want to start investing. Don’t have a lot of capital right and want to BRRRR out of state. We’re thinking Indianapolis. We’ve never bought an investment home though. Is this a terrible idea? How do people find all the team they need out of state? And how do you make sure it’s a good deal? I’m tired of talking and want to do something!


If I found a house on the market, sent it to my realtor and asked if we can go see this property, he responded said it would probably be tomorrow, seller says it probably won’t pass inspections for financing so I say okay forget it because I think this realtor won’t be any value add since this is an investment property. He does go off and lists things that need work. Will he have probably cause to collect a commission if I go directly to seller with an offer?
