Why buy rental homes in a bad market? This is the best time to purchase rental property. Prices are down and interest rates are low. If financially possible you should be purchasing as much Real Estate as possible right now. Rental Homes are a great source of income. If you have money in the Bank the Bank only gives you like 1 to 3% interest on your money right now. If you have that money in a rental home the return is so much greater. And not to mention the appreciation you will get in the future when the Market goes up. And what other investment can you make that somebody else will pay off for you. The tenant pays the mortgage off for you. Where most people make the mistake of buying high priced rental homes where the payment is high and they are in the red. And the home is big and very expensive to replace carpet and paint. That is the worst thing you can do. Remember you are not going to live in these homes. This should not be an emotional purchase this is for investment. To make you money in the future. Some tips on purchasing rental homes are: keep price low, stay in decent neighborhood, small square footage is best, no association if possible (this eats into your income from the home).

Real Estate is a BARGAIN right now! Plus, interest rates are at historic lows! Time to scoop up some investment real estate!

I wish I hadn't bought my duplex in 2007 ... it would have been much cheaper today! Today is the day to buy investment property.

It is the buy low sell high mentallity and like stocks people will be too scared to take the risk and therefore only a few will make the money.
