Are you ready to buy an investment property in DFW? Here are some things to consider.
Choosing the right property at the right price:
Investing in real estate is all about capital growth, so choosing a property that will create a steady rental income and increase in value is the most important decision you will make.
Check the job market:
Locations with growing employment opportunities will attract more people – meaning more tenants.
What age should you look for?
Stick with properties under 10 years old. With older houses - appliance and structural issues start to appear.
What is the optimal square footage?
Single family homes between 1,500 to 2,000 sq. ft. are the best investment you can make in the current market.
What should you look for in location?
Look for a property near major highways, good schools and area experiencing growth in development and jobs. The quality of the neighborhood in which you buy will influence the types of tenants you attract and how often you face vacancies.
What are the Property Taxes?
As an investor planning to make money from rent, you want to be aware of how much you will be losing to taxes.
Look for a property for what it can be, not what it is.
You have to look past the cracked paint and overgrown landscaping to score a great deal.
What is the crime rate?
Check online the accurate vandalism rates and crime statistics for the neighborhood.

"When my Wife and I bought our House the market was crazy. Inventory was very limited and quick action was necessary. During this tough time we needed a smart, tenacious, agent. We found these qualities in Kellye Demski. Kellye always brought us the latest listings and gave us sound advice on when to make an offer. Kellye showed great patience with us as we looked at House after House. We are very happy with our
purchase and Kellye made the buying process as painless as possible. We would definitely use Kellye again and refer her to Family and Friends.
