Factors to consider when buying to rent

If you are thinking of investing in the real estate sector, you must make sure that the transaction you want to carry out is 100% profitable and safe.

How? Taking into account certain key factors. Here are some of them:

The first step is to know both the sale prices and the rental prices that the houses have today in the market.

Using online home appraisers and getting advice from real estate professionals can help you choose the right home.

2/ Purchase expenses

When buying a property, you not only have to take into account the sale price, but also the associated expenses and taxes: notary, agency, IBI, Community, Insurance…

3/ Location and Neighbourhood

The area and location where a home is located will largely determine its demand. Well-connected properties surrounded by services and shops have extra points.

If the neighbourhood has little supply and high demand, the rental price may be higher and, consequently, its profitability.

4/ Type of property

After the COVID-19 crisis, the preferences of many tenants have changed. Houses with terraces, gardens and with a minimum of 2 or 3 bedrooms are on the rage.

Homes with these characteristics are much more likely to be rented in less time.

5/ Initial investment

Investing in the real estate sector is a safe move as long as the operation is well studied and the appropriate decisions are made.
