Getting Your Finances Back on Track after a Hollister Short Sale: Pros & Cons of Buying Rental Property

Hollister CA – The Pros of Rental Property.

The tenant pays your mortgage payment. You won't make a lot of money while you have a mortgage. But where else can you have someone buy and pay off something for you?

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully executed a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

You start to make real money after the mortgage is paid off. In addition, some properties are so cheap that the rent will pay off a 15-year mortgage. So in 15 years you have a free house.

Rentals are a great hedge against inflation. Notice how gas prices are going up again? The prices of everything else increase with gas prices. Food, clothes, electricity: and everything else goes up.

That means your house will go up in value over the long term, but you locked in the price when you bought it when prices were lower.

I don't want to make it seem like rental properties are no-brainers. There are some risks involved. No one should buy a rental property unless he's prepared and understands the risks.

The Cons of Rental Property

Problem #1: Leaky Toilets. This is the first thing of which you should be aware. We have seen that most problems are not emergency problems.

Many landlords work around these problems by hiring good help in the beginning. They find a good handy man and negotiate on the price before he does any work.

Problem #2: Management. You can find a good property management company to handle everything for you, but you still have to manage the management company.

If you do not have extra time to manage problems, then rental property is probably not for you. Some people like this buy larger properties and hire better managers.

They meet with their managers once a month and let them handle everything. This works for them because they bought a larger property with better numbers. That extra money can be used to pay a better, more competent manager.

Problem #3: Collecting Rent. This is where many people mess up. You have to be persistent and firm. If you are a sympathetic person and prone to give people a "break," then rental property is not for you.

Problem #4: Evictions. This is the bad side of the rental business. Most evictions occur because you didn't pre-screen a tenant well enough.

You must budget enough so that you can afford an eviction when it happens. An eviction will cost you 2-3 months of rent. That is why you must have a rainy day fund for situations like this.

Important Notice

Israel Gonzalez, Beale Properties, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.

The views expressed here are Gonzalez's personal views and do not reflect the views of Beale Properties.
