It's a great time to buy a house and then put it on the market for rent. It's the quality of the house and condition that makes the difference. There are quite a few for rent but many are in poor condition and need alot of work. Old appliances, dirty rugs and tile and poor lawn maintenance seem to be what many of the rentals are. If you purchase a house and rent it in good condition, you should have no problem finding a qualified tenant. Of course, do your background credit and criminal check. Many houses don't allow pets so that's something to consider as well. Rents will vary depending on number of bedrooms, size of house, whether there is a pool, age of house, and location.
I would love to work with you! I have lived in the Cape for over 24 years so I am very knowledgeable about the different areas and communities. Please feel free to email me or call anytime - I am available 7 days a week!
