Many people often ask us if investing in rental property is a wise investment. For long term investment purposes real estate has long been a wise financial investment for people. Unfortunately the economy over the last 2 years has had a tremendous effect on folks and many of the effects are negative resulting in a record number of foreclosures and short sales. As a result of this misfortune there are a number of real estate opportunities that make purchasing a second home or an investment property doable when once before many people could not have afforded such an investment. This is a personal decision and one that folks have to give careful thought and consideration to before taking the plunge. We ourselves recently purchased a condo in Myrtle Beach that we are going to fix up and put into a resort rental program. Our hope of course is that the condo will be rented for several weeks throughout the year especially the summer and hopefully will prove to be a wise investment. Before making the decision to purchase the condo we did the research and considered several options including the pros and cons of investing in rental property at the beach verses purchasing property in the town where we live. Again, the options were very viable, but with the deal we were able to negotiate at the beach it is the route we ultimately decided to invest in. Our hope and goal is to have a successful investment and hopefully in the next several years possibly purchase another investment property. Today the rates are at an all time low and with the assistantance th of real estate professionals there are a number of tremendous deals on the market, but consumers must be well informed and in some cases ready to act quickly.
