My husband I have just invested in our first rental property. We bought a small, old house and fixed it up, and now we are going to rent it out to college students. We live in a college town, so that shouldn’t be too hard. We are hoping to have steady renters to pay the mortgage, and still make a little profit. Once it is paid off, it will be all profit. Rental properties can cost money, though, believe me.
Just the cost of maintaining it can get high. I’m sure that when someone lives in a rental property, they don’t take as good care of it as you would if you owned it yourself, so there will always something to repair. Right now I’m researching different cable providers that we could use. I wonder if there is someone that specializes in serving rental properties. Surely there is some sort of plan out there for landlords. Then again, we could just leave it up to the renters to get television if they want it.
I wonder how it is like living near the lake especially if you are in Texas? It can get real hot and dry here and if your house located near a body of water, would it help? I am so jealous of people who own a home in Table Rock lake homes just because aside from it being an exclusive gated lakefront community located in the spectacular Ozark Mountains overlooking the sparkling blue waters of Table Rock Lake, they also have these beautiful panoramic views like you are in a vacation every day of your life plus the temperature would be a lot cooler than those living away from the lake.
I found a great website to search for homes and land for sale in Buxton, Dare Country including Buxton foreclosures is here. TheDeanAgency.com has listings you can browse properties by type or properties by area. Also you can filter your search by Buxton waterfront preferences or find bank-owned or distressed properties in our Buxton Foreclosures and Buxton Short Sales searches respectively. If you know someone who are looking for a property to buy along the Outer Banks, please refer him/her this website. Buxton real estate is known to be one of the ost affordable options in the area.
