Move Out & Rent it!

And we are back! With our special “First Time Investors!” A step-by-step guide to entering the world of real estate investments – buying real estate for income, and long-term wealth.

And right now, we’re going to talk about one of the most common ways people all across America start investing in real estate.

And that is – when they buy a new house – they keep the old one – and rent it out. It makes sense. Because you know your current house pretty well. You know the mortgage, you know the utilities, you know the taxes. Think about it! You know its history, you know its operating costs, the neighborhood, the schools – you know that place inside-out.

Top News Of The Week

Flood Insurance has been reauthorized and signed into law….on the very day it was scheduled to expire. In other words? Just in the nick of time. This means the program will be able to continue renewing existing flood insurance policies, and continue issuing new flood insurance policies for four more months. The bill S 1182, the “National Flood Insurance Program Extension Act of 2018,” was signed into law by president Turmp on Tuesday.

The bill reauthorizes the Federal Emergency Management Agency to enter into new contracts for flood insurance and borrow from the Treasury up to specified amounts through November 30, 2018.

It’s only a four month extension – far less than the multiple -year extension the real estate industry – including NAR – was hoping for.

NAR hopes the four month extension will give lawmakers a chance to hash out the details of a longer-term renewal of the insurance program. The program, which serves 22-thousand communities across the United States, was set to expire on July 31st.

Top News Of The Week

Lawmakers in four states are suing the federal government over the provision in last year’s tax overhaul that put a cap of $10,000 on certain state and local tax deductions, including property taxes. The states—New York, Connecticut, Maryland, and New Jersey—are among a group of states that have state and local taxes that can far exceed $10,000. Housingwire reports that the states say the deduction limits are disproportionately harmful to their residents.

Buying a home often means having to give up one feature to get another, but there’s one area where home buyers won’t make compromises: schools. More than 70% of people who took part in a recent survey by REALTOR®.com said that school boundaries were important to their search for a home. Over 90% of buyers with school-age children said the schools that serve a neighborhood were an important factor in determining if they would buy a home there. But, having the right school may mean some sacrifices. Garages, large backyards and updated kitchens top the list of features people are willing to give up in order to buy a home in their desired school district.
