Hi Krystel,

In general, the higher the price the lower the cash flow ROI because rents don;t go up as quickly as prices. In oither words, it's easy to find a place that costs around $100,000 and will get $1,000 a month in rent. It's impossible to find a place that costs $300,000 that will get $3,000 a month in rent.

On the other hand, as Don hints at the places with the highest cash flow ROI will have other issues and in my experience my foreign investors are looking for the best neighborhoods, not the high crime areas.

I have a team of professionals who focus on Foreign Investors. This includes property managers, lenders, attorneys, accountants, and repair people. You can see some of the things we can do for you on my website OrlandoRealtyOnline.com, under Canadian Buyers. We work most with Canadians but much of the info applies to any foreigner. This is our speciality and we have many who have purchases both long and short term rentals in Orlando and Kissimmee areas.

With 300k I would recommend 2 single family homes to be put in long term rental. Nobody can tell you how much you can expect monthly as every property is different. I dont disagree with the 4-6% net ROI mentioned below. We have had some careful investors also obtain 6-8% recently. If you add 4-6% appreciation it becomes an attractive investment. Appreciation has been much higher than this in some areas in the last 12 months. But this does not remain constant forever. If you buy in less desirable areas it is still possible to obtain 8-10 %, but I do not recommend it as they will not appreciate and these areas often bring other issues.

Hi Krystel,

Yes, like my colleagues are saying 300K can get you 1 or more properties depending on the area. You're probably interested in properties near Disney or maybe the schools that we have here (UCF, Barry law, etc) as they make for great rentals.

Check out my website to see what's available. And under my 'Resources' tab I have a mortgage calculator that should be beneficial to you. http://(www.ProfessionalReTeam.com)

If you have any questions, let me know!

Hi Krystal:

Yes, you could purchase 2 to 3 homes with $300K. Probably 2 single family homes or maybe 3 condos/townhomes. A realistic cash flow that you could expect on rental properties would be between 4% to 6% that is considering that you would hire a monument company to take care of rentals for you (I assume you are not going to be present to manage your homes). Insurance, tenant insurance, liability insurance, vacancy rate, maintenance, tax, HOA,... are all costs that you need to be aware of and that will leave you with that 4% to 6% return.

Please feel free to contact me so we can discuss this in more details.

Good Morning Krystel,

It just depends in the area that you buy and the type of deal that you get. You have to do a lot of research if you are trying to be an investor.

Hi Krystel,

It all depends on the properties and the type of cash flow you are looking for.
If it's to buy 2 properties that would be STR, there is a flow for that depending on management, bookings, location etc.
If you are looking at LTR, there is a flow for that too...different type of management company and location etc.

Find a realtor that can work "with" you and then set guidelines and expectations with them to get you started. Some of us are used to working with investors from out of the country.

Let me know if I can help....
