#1. Strong House, Cosmetic Upgrades Only

Unless you’re handy, or have a lot of experience, you may not want to invest in a house that requires a lot of effort to get it ready to rent. After all, every day that you delay renting is a day that you don’t get the cash flow you desire. A strong, well-built house that is free of problems and only needs cosmetic upgrades is a great place to start. Yes, you might pay a little more up-front for this kind of property but you’ll save time and money afterward in getting it ready to rent.
