They are already rehabbed and rented out. i have less than a 3.6% vacancy rate (annually) and these properties are already cash flowing and will be appreciating to double maybe even triple in the next 5-7 years. Call me if you are interested in looking at what i have. My name is Sal Leto my number is 562-441-3757 and my email is

Yes you can. You just need to talk with an accountant. They can assist you with setting up an LLC to purchase your properties. Also I would speak to a good Realtor who can assist you with property management and selecting the right properties.

Or if you prefer you can purchase a house that has already been renovated and has a tenant with property management in place. That is what I provide. Our company is Metro Detroit Cashflow Properties. We assist investors with these types of request. Please visit our website and contact us so that we can help you further

Best Regards,

Of course, why couldn't you? You might want to talk to your accountant or CPA and find out what your financial implications are in buying a rental property. You'll have to report the rent as income, but you'll be able to write off a bunch of expenses. You may also be subject to capital gains taxes when you go to sell it down the road.

You might also want to educate yourself on what it takes to be a landlord and see what's legally required.
