Thank you to everyone who sent us congratulatory messages on our newest project. This 1949 house is 2 beds/1 bath and all of 924 square feet on half an acre lot. The selling features for me were the hardwoods, gas fireplace, arched doorways, and circular driveway. We're equally excited and nervous about this property since it is a completely new endeavor for us. Historically, Brian and I have purchased houses with the intent to flip as quickly as possible. However, for this little house, we have chosen to hold onto it as a long-term rental investment. In light of this, I thought it may be helpful for people out there who are interested in a buying an investment property to share the reasons why we are choosing to go this route. Full disclosure, we are NOT real estate gurus or financial planners or much of an expert in any of these realms. Through trial and error, we've just realized a few things along the way that I think others may be interested in hearing.
