A rental property doesn’t need to be brand new, have the best amenities, or offer 24/7 property management to do well. An older home can out-cash-flow a new build with one specific factor. So, what is THE key to having a profitable rental property, and why do so many rookie real estate investors not pay attention to it? Tune in, and find out on this week’s episode of Seeing Greene!
We’re back with your “I finally remembered to turn on the green light!” host, David Greene. This time around, David is taking questions from all levels of real estate investors. Questions like what to do when your HELOC (home equity line of credit) rate is about to skyrocket, how fast to scale your rental portfolio, whether new homes are worth it as rentals, and how to turn a couple of rental properties into a real estate retirement plan. We even get a quick cameo from tax expert Tom Wheelwright on how to avoid taxes the next time you’re selling a rental!
