Variables to consider when buying investment property

Beyond location and price, we know the variables to consider when evaluating your investment. We know the market, so we can help you estimate reasonable and realistic annual rent that you can expect from your property. We manage some of our clients’ properties so we can identify annual expenses, which usually range between 5 and 10 percent of the annual rent.

We understand capitalization rates, so we can help you calculate the annual return you can expect from your investment property. We usually advise our clients to have a target capitalization rate before looking at properties. We use this information to figure out what you should be willing to pay for a property, based on your goals, requirements, and expectations.
