When making a purchase research is key. If you are looking at buying a residential income property make sure you do an ample amount of research first. Other than the home itself, you should be investigating all aspects of the property. This includes the location, the property taxes and the crime rates. Your research should be based on what you are hoping to get out of the property. Are you renting it out? Hoping to sell again in a few years? Find out what you want and research accordingly. There are many articles online to help you along your research path such as this one here. If you require further assistance contact me today!
