Interest in Oklahoma Rental Properties on the Rise
Smart investors buying up cheap income producing properties
Oklahoma City and Tulsa residents who have hit hard times are turning to rentals as opposed to buying homes to put a roof over their heads. This trend is leading smart real estate investors to snap up cheap deals and start renting them out. There is incredibly high demand right now so it's pretty easy to find tenants.
And no matter what the market is doing, you can never go wrong with the mentality of buying a property and holding it for several years before eventually selling it. Though lots of investors made good money buying properties and selling them quickly over the last few years, the ones who are building lifetime wealth are the investors with a "buy and hold" long-term strategy.
No matter what anyone tries to tell you, you just can't go wrong with owning an investment property in the state of Oklahoma and having someone else pay the mortgage. It's the classic scenario that every investor hopes for - making money while you sleep. The buy it and flip it investor doesn't have this ability. He only makes money when he sells a property.
By holding on to the property you can get the benefits of appreciation. It may take years to experience this increase in wealth, but over the long term it is proven to happen in the case of just about every property.
Some investors argue that they don't like Oklahoma City rental properties because dealing with tenants is a pain. And yes, sometimes it can be, but as long as you have good screening and communication systems in place to stop any problems that may occur, you should be in pretty good shape. If you are one of the investors that aren't very excited at the prospect of having to deal with tenants, hiring a management company to take care of this aspect of the business is a recommended solution.
Now don't think that you can just go out and buy the first property you see, rent it out, and make a killing. You have to be especially careful to buy the right properties and buy them at the right price. You can get a good start on doing this by focusing on pre-foreclosures and wholesale properties.
Because pre-foreclosures and wholesale properties are less popular than other types of investments, they are not as high priced as some of those. This is good for you because while a tenant paying the mortgage and appreciation are in your favor, if you buy it at the right price it can make your investment in income property that much better.
